Friday Favorites: Dior, Trader Joe’s & More


I am on a roll lately with Friday Favorites posts!!

Friday Favorites

Dior Flash Luminizer:

Formally known as Dior’s Skinflash, I actually can’t believe that I never mentioned Dior’s Flash Luminizer in a Friday Favorites post!

Skinflash (okay fine, Flash Luminizer) is a makeup MUST so I insist that you add it to your makeup collection.

My Dior makeup artist (her name is Jill and I love her, we are real friends now for years) always reminds me to keep the Flash Luminizer with me at all times. It conceals, it brightens, it does it all, I promise.

Trader Joe’s Oatmeal & Honey Soap:

I started using the Oatmeal & Honey Soap from Trader Joe’s a few years ago and it’s still my favorite. It’s super gentle with a nice, mild scent. No parabans either!

    Whenever you post about makeup or skin care it makes me want to find some quality products. And then i completely forget about it util the next time you post something:) I really could use better skin products but I find myself sticking to the basics and buying what is convenient and inexpensive.
    Not sure about the weekend, maybe a long-ish run but probably depends on the weather. Hope you have a good weekend and long run!

      next time you are here, we can meet at walt Whitman and I will go with you to get what you need! I think it’s a great idea 🙂

    I’m obsessed with the Dior mascara so I might have to give that luminizer a shot!
    I’ve also been looking for more natural cleansers and soaps so I’m going to check that out at TJ’s next time!

    Happy Friday!!

    I like that quote too! I’ve been thinking about that a lot recently! I’m single but have been going out on dates and meeting new people (in another country!). I’ve definitely found that some people who don’t speak any English and we communicate entirely in Spanish still understand me better than some men who are bilingual but just don’t GET me.

    That last quote. It’s so true that we’re given a few of those people who can see you and understand without a word, and they are such a gift. <3

    And that honey and oatmeal soap actually sounds like it might taste good?

    Oh man, I sure could use some brightening up around my eyes today. We moved Callum into his own bed last night and it was not without a fight. He cried from 11pm until 2:45am. He won’t cry as long tonight, I’m sure.

      oh boy, that is a tough one. I hope it gets a little better this week but I’m sure as you know from experience, it may take time. the worst!! my son was not so easy in his toddler bed because he suddenly had freedom out of the crib and it took forever until he fell asleep.

    I feel like I’m constantly searching for a good brightener/concealer for under my eyes! I have dark circles no matter how much I sleep. My long run was today and I’m glad I got it done!

    I love bar soaps. I find it’s so much gentler on my skin, especially now with everything being so darn dry. Hello winter, although I shouldn’t complain since this winter has been so easy thus far.

    Anything that can hide the bags under my eyes is worth the investment.
