LOVE Party + Core Life Eatery + DreamSkin (Friday Favorites)


I’ve got a few Friday Favorites for us today! I’m so glad it’s Friday. 🙂

Friday Favorites

City Nights:

I was in the city last night for an event industry party at “Above Twelve”, also know as Ron Ben-Israel’s Cake Studio. He threw a “LOVE Party” in conjunction with Marcia Selden Catering. I love when they throw parties!


If you missed my post on the time I took a tour at Ron Ben-Israel’s cake studio with a cake tasting, here’s the link.

Ron always has a “cake room” at his parties which offers bites of all of his delicious cake combinations!

As you can tell, everything at the LOVE Party was RED. It was a bit difficult to capture this picture below of the heart-shaped grilled cheese sandwiches yet still, how cute?

I always leave with a candy box from their candy table. It was such a fun night!

We tried Core Life Eatery:

Do you have a Core Life Eatery in your area? One recently opened near my house so my son and I gave it a try the other night for an early dinner. It’s definitely my type of place because it’s loaded with fresh, whole foods, tons of plant-based options plus carnivore options for my son that are organic and GMO-free.

The Core Life Eatery sort of reminds me of Chopt in terms of picking your ingredients but also offering a menu of various bowls and plates.

I went with creating my own bowl which included quinoa, four types of vegetables, hummus, and two types of roasted vegetables – brussels sprouts and root vegetables.

It was delicious! I look forward to going back again to create another combination. On purpose I will force myself to order something different just so we can discuss it.

Dior DreamSkin Perfect Skin Cushion:

And I need to do an updated Skincare/Beauty Favorites post but in the meantime, I’m really loving the Dior DreamSkin Perfect Skin Cushion!

“A compact of tinted skin care that blurs imperfections and helps to minimize visible signs of aging while you’re on the go, leaving skin looking flawless and luminous while protecting with SPF 50.”

I wore it on the plane last week for extra hydration and SPF (you should actually wear SPF on a plane!) and continued to wear it throughout the trip rather than my typical foundation. It’s so super hydrating while giving you a light coverage with skin treatment properties. I like that it comes in a compact too.

Dio DreamSkin Cushion

If you aren’t one to put on makeup everyday, don’t love to wear foundation and often skip sunblock, this product is for you. It will give you some coverage, even out skin tone while also giving you some of the treatment your skin needs (which is extra great if you aren’t good about moisturizing/skincare routine).

Have a great weekend!

    Love your dress and heels. Those heels are sexy, yet comfortable looking. Great pic of you and the night looked like a blast assuming you were there with your work friends. Have a great weekend!

      thank you! and yes, those Tory Burch heels are the best heels ever! I bought them a few years ago – they are my go-to black heels for work events and walking the city because they are so super comfortable and classic too! I was thinking last night that I should get them in a camel color.
