Friday Favorites


This week has flown right on by if you ask me but that’s probably because I have been in my own little world. My normal routine is slowly returning so hopefully I feel up to my usual posting schedule by next week. It’s odd to not write everyday but I just haven’t had the head for doing so — I hope you understand!

I did come up with a fun list of Friday Favorites to share today so let’s quickly chat about what I am loving lately…

Friday Favorites


Nars Luminous Moisture Cream

This is my first experience with the Nars Skin line and I am hooked. The product itself is super soft and glides on so easily. My face has never felt so smooth and hydrated! I will definitely be trying other Nars Skin products especially since they are made without parabens and are free of the other “bad” ingredients.



Dr. Dennis Gross All in One Cleanser with Toner

I like to switch up my skin care products and always seem to bounce my way back to using some from Dr. Dennis Gross. I recently purchased this facial cleanser and love how well it removes makeup while cleaning the face. There’s a built-in toner which is awesome because it removes a separate step for me from my face washing process!

Everything Dior:

I have written numerous times about my love of Dior makeup and skin care products so for today, I will just list my most recent favorites.

Dior makeup trial

Star Foundation: By far the best foundation I have ever used in my life. The Star foundation provides amazing light weight coverage while giving a nice glow which looks amazing in photos. I have also used Dior’s Air Flash foundation but if you ask me to choose, I like the Star foundation the best.

Lip Addict: I love all Dior lipsticks and glosses, my most recent lipstick is the Lip Addict #340.

Candy Table Sign:

I never told you that I designed a candy table for my son’s Bar Mitzvah because I was trying to keep the details of the party under wraps.

While I do not have a picture of the actual candy table just yet (let’s hope the photographer got some good shots for us!) it’s worth telling you now that yes, I did design a candy buffet that was set up on exit of the Bar Mitzvah party.

The decor company that I used for the party created this sign that was displayed on the candy table incorporating a baby picture of my son.

It now sits in my living room. I do not know where we will put it but it’s so cute that I don’t consider it clutter.

The Bar Mitzvah favors:

I had two logos designed for the Bar Mitzvah which were then incorporated not only throughout the party décor but for the t-shirts  and sweatshirt favors.

The sweatshirts were bagged in drawstring logo backpacks and given to the kids in attendance at the end of the night.

I don’t have a picture of the bag but here’s the sweatshirt. I am obsessed with it!

Trust me when I say it will be THE SWEATSHIRT that I live in this winter. The color pattern is awesome and the sweatshirt itself is an amazing quality  – super soft and comfy.

The t-shirts were given out on the dance floor but luckily I was smart enough to save a few for myself to wear around the house. I just love the distressed logo!

Logos by Alexander Mason Designs and favors by Party Favors by Robin, I highly recommend both companies!

This Quote:

Suzy shared this quote last week and I have repeated the words to myself over and over ever since. The timing of reading this quote could not have been more perfect as these are words for me to live by right now and always!

    Your newest addition to the wardrobe looks wonderful. I need a comfy sweatshirt for this winter too. Right now I’ll settle for a cat in my lap; it’s like my own personal heating pad, except it makes going to the bathroom difficult. 🙂

    I love the candy station idea. I knew you would have one.

    I need a candy table in our HOUSE! Wouldn’t that be so cool? Like instead of a bar area, we could put in those bulk bins with handles and scoops and cute little bowls and fill it all up with a variety of candy. YASSSS.

    I just use some cheap Olay moisturizer and I mix it in with self tanner.

    OMG..those favors are great. I just walked my laptop into the other room (where my husband is sitting) to show him. Both he and Brady are hockey obsessed AND we have a Bar mitzvah in just over 2 years AND we don’t live anywhere near you guys so no one would know if we did something similar:))))

    Thanks for sharing!!

      if you guys like hockey, you should totally do hockey related logos! which team is your son’s favorite? work with that logo somehow and incorporate it into the party. I am happy to help when the time comes to plan and definitely recommend the company I used. they are based in florida but you don’t need local for a logo! and my advice? start the planning a year in advance at least so you don’t have the pressure on you. you may think you know what you want to do but only during the actual planning and design do you learn what it is you will like.

    The Bar Mitzvah and a candy buffet on exit. It’s amazing! The kids can not be able to resist about this. And the T-shirts – they are very nice! I love this@
