Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! It was a cold and snowy week here in MO and it’s official that Fall was skipped this year…again! We had a snow day here on Tuesday and I think I’ve been trying to warm up ever since ūüôā but today is Friday and I wanted to share some of my favorites with you!

1. Beautycounter Overnight Resurfacing Peel I have read so many great things about this brand (and in particular this item) , but I’ve used a perscripiton retinol for years so I never gave it another thought. Lately I’ve been reading about skincare and all the bad ingredients that are in it that I decided to try a “clean” skincare item to see how it would work. (I’m still using my retinol, but I use this in place of it every other night.) The claims sound great… brighten, soften and help with skins texture without causing irritation or drying out the skin. As the temps start to change I always deal with my combination skin looking and feeling a little dry so I welcomed the idea of not seeing any dryness on my face that I still seem to experience with retinol. I’ve been using the Overnight Resurfacing Peel every other night followed my moisturizer and I have to say I’m very impressed! My skin feels so soft the next morning and I’ve noticed my skin looks more radiant too. I have acne prone skin and this hasn’t caused me to breakout either. I have found myself excited on the nights I use this to put it on my skin because I know I’m going to wake up with super soft, glowy, hydrated skin! I hightly recommend this!

2. Living Proof Flex Hairspray This hairspray is like hairspray 2.0! I don’t like the way hairspray feels on my hair so I never used it…but when the temps drop my hair gets some crazy static when I put on my winter coat. This hairspray helps that! It doesn’t leave your hair feeling hard at all, can be applied to wet or dry hair and it has heat protection in it too!! I spray it in my towel dried hair, brush it throught and either let it air dry of use my hair dryer. Either way my hair feels soft and I’ve had no static problems! Love it.

3. EVER Whiplash Mascara For those who don’t know; I’m a Stella & Dot Stylist. Our company recently shared some exciting news with us…starting in January 2020 you will be able to purchase EVER Skincare (Stella’s sister company) direct from my website! It’s a very exciting time and I have been doing a ton of research to learn as much as I can about EVER Skincare and makeup! I few of their items have been released to my website for the holidays for me to share with you on my website and I ordered the Whiplash Mascara ASAP! It’s a clean mascara that gives my pale blond barely there lashes both length AND volume! I’m excited to try out more makeup and skincare in the coming months.

Laura Mercier Eyelash Curler I know it looks weird, but this eyelash curler is in my opinion the BEST! I was looking for a link to share with all of you and I had a hard time finding it, so that makes me think it’s been discountinued (gasp!!!) The link I provided is the only place I could find it. It never pinches and curls my tiny pale lashes so well! I’ll check back to see if I find it anywhere else.

4. Ever Spring Liquid Hand Soap I saw this in the holiday section of my Target. I’ve never purchased this brand, but the Winter Citrus & Pine and the Peppermint Clove smelled soooo good I had to give them both a try! The adorable artwork on the bottles was to cute to pass up too! I’m not ready to put out Christmas decor yet (#respecttheturkey) but I’m changing out my soaps ASAP!!!

5. Hallmark Channel Christmas Movies I LOVE watching the Hallmark Channel during the Christmas season! Yes, the movies are predictable, but they are so cozy and always have a happy ending…I’m a sucker for them! My daughters and I will watch them together and I don’t have to worry about any inapropriate stuff either!!!! If you haven’t watched one yet, go for it! The link above has a list of all of them for the rest of 2019.

Let me know what you think of my favorites or if you have a favorite you think I’d like to try! Have a great weekend.

Until Next Time,

Beth

Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday! I hope you all have had a good week. I have quite a odd assortment of favorites to share with you today so I apolgize in advance at how odd they might seem:) Okay…here we go!

The Weekend Slouchy Top from Stella & Dot This off the sholder top with gold details is perfect for date night! I don’t own a lot of green either so this is a nice change for me. The fabric is very soft and has a bit of stretch to it also.

Haagen-Dazs Non-Dairy Chocolate Fudge Bar I have been dairy free for about a year and have had a hard time finding an ice cream treat that I thought was good…until now! Holy cow these are good…so good that I double checked the box the first time I tried them to make sure I picked up the non-dairy kind. Highly recommend!!!!

It Cosmetics Heavenly Skin Brush I have tried quite a few foundation brushes and this one works best for me. It gives good coverage and never has left my makeup looking streaky and the brush is super soft.

Sharper Image Silicon Ice Sphere Molds I originally purchased these for my husband to use in his drinks, but I started putting them in my daughters Yeti since she has practice after school and they last all day! I take them out of the freezer and let them set out for about 10 minutes before I pop them out and they seem to come out easier that way.

Okay there they are, my top picks for the week. I’d love to know what your favorites are!

Until next time-have a great weekend!

Friday Favorites!

I don’t know about you, but I love learning about new things that other people have had luck with so here are a few items that I’ve been really liking…

fullsizeoutput_259f

Peter Thomas Roth Skin To Die For   This primer ROCKS!  I can 100% tell a difference from the way my foundation wears when I have this on.  It helps my foundation wear longer, blurs my pores and helps control the shine I usually get a few hours into my day.  I highly recommend this to anyone who is

fullsizeoutput_2598

Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist¬† ¬†This setting spray is the perfect way to set my makeup during the hot weather we have had here in St. Louis and I love that it has SPF 50 also. ¬†This is also nice to use on my daughters too after they have been in and out of the pool and hasn’t caused any breakouts of any of our skin. ¬†I have the travel size which is perfect for my pool bag!

fullsizeoutput_259d

Addison & Gates Blackberry Vanilla hand cream.  I found this at World Market (I love that place). It smells really good and is perfect for my purse or nightstand.

fullsizeoutput_259b

Stella & Dot Essential Hammered Hoops in Gold ¬†These featherweight hammered hoops are great. ¬†I have been wearing them a ton and they are so lightweight I can’t even feel them in my ear! ¬†(They come in silver too)

 

wFTzH2I6TOef%tMdwwA

Flatout Foldit¬† This flatbread has quickly become a lunchtime staple for me. ¬†It has great flavor, only 100 calories and 6 grams of protein. ¬†It comes in a few other flavors too which I’m excited to try.

Ok, there you have it! ¬†I hope you all have a great Friday-I’m relishing the last few weeks of summer break with my daughters.

Have a great day!

Stella & Dot September new releases!

Good Morning! ¬†For those who don’t know I started selling Stella & Dot a couple of months ago. ¬†I thought about it for quite a while before I took the plunge and I’m happy I did. ¬†I have had a really good, positive experience with the company and I’m totally in love with all of there jewelry, accessories and last month the launched tops and I’m loving them too! ¬†I thought today I’d share my favorites from the September new releases. ¬†Let me know what you think!

  1. Everett Cold Shoulder Top  I love the flattering neckline of this top and it has an exaggerated shirt tail in the back.
  2. Covet Kensington Tote This genuine leather tote with shiny gold hardware is beautiful.  It has a zip top too and a detachable strap.
  3. Avery Bell Sleeve Knit Top These bell sleeves are perfect and very on trend too.
  4. Charlotte Druzy Earrings I think druzy stones are so cool.  I love how no two are alike and they wrapped around a delicate chandelier frame.  These also come in raspberry and pale blue (shown in emerald).
  5. Philippa Bracelet I love the vintage gold finish this bracelet has and I think it could be a great piece to go with just about everything.
  6. Reversible Infinity Scarf This is the perfect piece to throw on and look put together instantly!  It has two different neutral leopard prints that would work with a lot of the colors in my wardrobe.
  7. Roz One Shoulder Top This top is just beautiful in this gorgeous shade of burgundy.  Not only could you wear it with jeans, I think it would be perfect for holiday parties with a black skirt too.  Very versatile!
  8. Covet Sunday Bag This bag can be worn cross body or over the shoulder and looks beautiful in olive suede with silver hardware.  This bag also come in burgundy suede and saddle leather too!

Ok so those are my picks from the just released September collection!  It was really hard to narrow it down to just these, but I think the pieces I chose are really versatile and at good price points too.  Please let me know if you have any questions about any of these or any other item from Stella & Dot.

Have a great weekend!

August Favorites

Good bye sweet August! ¬†It was a fun month full of lots of things I’ve really been loving and here are my top favorites…

Living Proof Restore Shampoo and Living Proof Restore Conditioner  I have color treated hair that I use a blow dryer and flat iron on multiple times a week and my hair has felt so much healthier since I started using this.

Clinique Superprimer  This primer is the perfect amount of slip for my combination skin.  It dries quickly and helps blur my pores too.

Escada Fiesta Carioca  This perfume is a fruity floral that screams summer to me.

GK Leave in Spray  I use this spray after I shower on towel dried hair.  It helps with tangles and frizz and it smells good too!

Stella and Dot Gita Tassel Earrings  I sell Stella & Dot so I have a lot of earrings, but these tassel earrings have been on repeat this month.  They go with so much and are just a fun earring to wear.

So there you have it, my top favorites of the month.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Have a great day!
