Early Friday Favorites From The Week

Please don’t let me confuse you. Today is Thursday. I’m popping in today instead of tomorrow and missed yesterday’s post.

Did we realize it’s September? This alone confuses me. Every summer I say, but where did the summer go? And this year especially I say BUT WHERE DID THE SUMMER GO? I mentally outline the months and seasons with my son’s school and camp routine but that all got thrown off in March and my son didn’t go to camp this summer either (he’s older now so that’s an extra confusion thrown into my confusion). The school year (a mix of in-person and virtual) does start next week though. And let’s not forget that I’ve been watching hockey for the last month and it’s the playoffs, from technically last season. But it’s still this season. But hockey usually starts next month for next season but if we are lucky, we will still be playing last season next month. See what I mean?

Okay, enough confusing talk. I have some favorites ahead of the holiday weekend.

Two slices of Sicilian pizza. YUM.

While I normally go the grandma pizza route when I want the square variety, I opted for Sicilian pizza the other evening from Piccolo which was as delicious as ever.

Charlotte Tilbury Eye Shadow

I really needed/wanted a new eye shadow palette. One with great colors and a variety of ways to pair the shades so that I have options. This Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Palette of Pops featuring shimmers in nude pink, champagne, rose gold, and copper-bronze shades are EXACTLY what I needed. Normally my eyes are crazy sensitive to eye shadows so I was super careful to test out each shade in the palette on separate days to then combine them on my eyelids to really ensure I could wear this palette. I’m super happy to report that my eyes do not react at all to the beautiful colors in this Charlotte Tilbury eye shadow palette! The colors are so beautiful and really go on very nicely. I highly recommend this Charlotte Tilbury eye shadow palette although there are other palettes to choose from if you want different eye shadow shade combinations.

Also! I bought a new for me moisturizer to switch up from using Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer. I chose the Biossane Squalane + Omega Repair Cream which is very hydrating (like the lala Retro is) but not as thick. Biossance gets the Clean label from Sephora (just like Drunk Elephant) and it’s also nice to know that Biossance is EWG Certified which means it meets the strictest criteria for transparency and health.

Stoney Clover Money Saving Tip

While Stoney Clover doesn’t run sales often (like maybe once a year for Black Friday), you can save some money if you go through Shopbop and Saks. They both run sales and various saving deals while also offering free shipping. The Stoney Clover selection they offer is limited in comparison to shopping directly from Stoney Clover but you will DEFINITELY find something you like, without question! Shopbop has a nice selection of Stoney Clover pouches and bags (plus the tie-dye masks) with free shipping. Saks has a great selection as well plus is running a savings deal right now and free shipping so it’s worth checking out both sites so you can save some money.

Fashion Finds

Bloomingdale’s is running a denim sale for the holiday weekend. We are talking $89 denim and some designer styles are even cheaper! This style from 7 for all mankind is a favorite of mine.

Splendid is running 50% off almost everything! Use code LONGWEEKEND.

I love this All American Jersey Shortie Set for around the house. Or to wear out.

I saw this denim skirt at Target. It’s a nice one and feels soft. I hate hard denim!

Good news, this J.Crew Wide Knot Headband with Crystals is on sale right now (along with a majority of the site). I bought the headband last week and LOVE IT. It’s very comfortable and so pretty. Speaking of headbands, I’m thinking about this Lele Sodoughi Pink Woven Knotted Headband with Pearls.


Have a wonderful holiday weekend. 🙂
