Birthday Dinners + Glossier Order + Fashion Faves


It was another long but fast yet productive week. And Wednesday was my son’s birthday! I can’t even that he is 18. I mean, I’ve been writing this blog since he was nine. Who can even believe that?! I know that I can’t.

I look back at posts like You Never Sleep Again and The Bar Mitzvah and still think of my favorite motherhood saying…

The Days Are Long But The Years Are Short (< – another great post).

I’m so glad that my son ended up local for college. For months I thought about how he would be in Buffalo for his birthday and how I wouldn’t be able to see him or give him the goody bag I make every year along with balloons. So with that last-minute school change over the summer because of the full scholarship offer to the local private university, we were able to meet for dinner two nights this week to celebrate his birthday. And I gave him his goody bag and bought balloons. 🙂

Of course, there was a dinner at Cheesecake.

Friday Favorites

I’ve got a quick round of Friday Favorites for today! I placed an order recently from Glossier to restock a few things and try some new products too.


Balm Dot Com – THE BEST lip balm and skin salve. I order two at a time.

Lash Slick – My favorite mascara, I’m on like my 6th or 7th by now.

Universal Pro-Retinol – Well-priced, gentle yet effective. Very happy so far with this retinol.

Lidstar – This is my second Lidstar cream eye shadow. I figured I could use another color. The colors go on light, don’t give me allergies, and wear well.

In fashion, Bloomingdale’s is still running Friends & Family with 25% off (not everything but a large variety) and free shipping for everyone.

I ordered the black cashmere dress that I mentioned recently. I LOVE IT. It’s a classic dress that is so ME and was worth every penny. I will have it forever.

I needed new jeans so I chose these from MOTHER and this pair from Rag & Bone. I’m still wearing skinny jeans no matter what is declared the trend. I wear what I like and what fits me the best.

Random, but I loved this pack of socks so had to get them, especially because they come with a scrunchie.

Did you see these Marshmallow sneakers from Saucony? The colors are everything.

Oh, and if you missed my post on Monday, check it out for my recent order and favorites from Alo Yoga.
