I haven’t shared a round of my favorites in at least a few weeks so I figured, why not pop in randomly on a Tuesday to discuss?! We are in that holiday time period where the days really blend together so might as well discuss my Friday Favorites on a Tuesday, right?
Of course, I’m starting with Stoney Clover.
Hanukkah was so good to me.
I’ve wanted a Stoney Clover duffel since I laid my eyes on the brand almost two years ago. I knew eventually I would be able to pick a color and patch combination. After much turmoil and debate, I finally knew that I wanted the sparkling champagne color for my Stoney Clover duffel. This shade of blush pink is just so pretty, and just…so…ME.
I went with a matching sparkling champagne glitter M on the front of the duffel and the sparkling champagne and buttercream hearts on the back. The nice thing is that I can always add additional patches if I want to the Stoney Clover duffel. And the small pouch! I love the tone on tone with my name! If you aren’t sure where to start with Stoney Clover products, start with a small pouch. You will not be disappointed. I’m all set and ready to travel in style…whenever it is I travel again.
More Love For Glossier
I love the pink zip pouch that the Glossier products arrive in — it really adds to the excitement.
With or without the sale, I find Glossier really reasonable in general for quality, clean beauty products.
My latest Glossier haul:
First, some restocking of Colorslide eyeliner, another shade of Cloud Paint, definitely needed another Lash Slick since it’s the best mascara ever, and since one can never have enough of the right lip balm, another Balm Dot Com.
Then I decided to try Brow Flick which is used to fill in the brows (I like it!).
And even more exciting, I’m obsessed with the Perfecting Skin Tint and Stretch Concealer Duo.
Glossier is known for the no-makeup makeup look so the skin tint is not a heavy foundation. it’s perfect for every day and for creating a really natural look that evens out coloring without looking heavy or caked on. It’s your skin, but better. I find that it actually gives nice coverage in a light sort of way. And the stretch concealer? It’s amazing. I find it to give great coverage, still in a light sort of way, that blends quickly and is easy to apply. Do I recommend the duo? YES. You can’t beat the price for the quality of clean skincare you are getting!
Let’s not forget about Futuredew. It’s like a serum type of primer that gives such a nice glow. You can wear it alone or, as I wear it, under the skin tint. When I want a little more coverage out of the skin tint, I use my favorite Tatcha primer (primer does make a difference!) but the Futuredew is great for an easy, laid back day time look with added dewy glow. You can also use it as a highlighter after putting on foundation.
And because I couldn’t resist the hype of the cute pink container, I needed to try Glossier’s Hand Cream.It’s a cult-favorite and I understand why. While normally my skincare is fragrance-free, it’s nice to have this hand cream that offers a light, happy scent. The hand cream itself is really nice and hydrating. And yes, the pink container adds to the fun.
Speaking of hand cream, I also ordered the most amazing hand repair cream from Biossance. It is so incredible that it’s sold out. I definitely recommend that you keep checking the Biossance site for when it’s restocked. I’m so glad I bought it when I did and got my mom a tube too for Hanukkah.
So it’s that weird time of year (especially this year) when I don’t really need clothes and can use what I have until we get to spring.
I did use my lululemon gift card to get the Sherpa Wear Pom Beanie and I LOVE IT. It was totally worth my gift card (I can be so selective when I have a lulu gift card). I wear it every day and the blush pink is perfect for me. I also bought the Energy Bra High-Neck Long LIne Rib Sports Bra. It fits really well and looks nice as a top with high leggings. From the We Made Too Much Sale, I quickly grabbed a new Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve and the Align High Rise Tight with Twist Band. I tried to get a Swiftly Long Sleeve on the sale but it was sold out once I placed my order.
And finally, yesterday I highlighted the positives I found in my workouts this year. Well here’s another positive of 2020 — being able to live in my tie-dye fuzzy slippers. I’ve never been home so much in my life but being able to wear these slippers makes it all so wonderful. What I love most about the slippers, aside from the pretty colors, is that they are so comfortable without making my feet sweat. I hate enclosed slippers or anything style that makes my feet feel hot or suffocated — these slippers are perfect.
