My Friday Favs

I’m backkk (kinda).

Let’s be real. Life is hard, and crap gets in the way. I’ll get into it in a later post, but for now… what’s up? How are you? I’ve been doing good. If you were wondering.

I figured I could come back with a basic blog post. I’ve been posting here and there, but not really in a solid way. SO I’m going to try to be better, and actually, post. Don’t hate me, don’t unsubscribe (please, I swear I’m funny and cool), just hang on for a second! Let me know what you would want to see!

-Witch Hazel

I’m kind of jumping on the bandwagon with this one, I’ll just go ahead and admit it right off the bat. But I just didn’t feel like buying it for the longest time. I finally bit the bullet over the summer and I do not regret it at all. It took me a while to use it regularly.  But once I did it changed my skin. I’ve had acne struggles (ish) for the past year or so. Like bad cystic breakouts. It’s awful, my skin literally hurt and was so swollen. But if I put this on daily and do a facial massage when I feel a breakout coming on, I’m golden.

-Ban.do Planners

Okay, I love planners. I usually buy two a year even though I know it covers the full year. I usually get bored and want a different design. But I am obsessed with this planner’s design. They pack them full of amazing designs and I love the layout. I’ve kept this planner for almost a year and I am not giving it up. It’s amazing. Also, their stickers make me so happy.

-Hydroflask

I know these are annoying and trendy. But I love my hydroflask. It keeps my water cool, I can leave it in my car on a summer day in Texas, and it’ll still be cool when I come back. It is bulky, but I personally don’t mind carrying it around. I prefer a bigger bottle so I can chug water whenever I want. Also, I put a bunch of cool stickers on mine. I’m cool.

-These New Balance Tennis Shoes

These shoes are the comfiest tennis shoes I have ever owned. I usually buy nike, but I wanted to switch it up a bit. So I bought these shoes two years ago not expecting too much. These shoes have lasted me so long, and they are still comfortable. I run, walk, work out, and nap (when I’m really tired I pass out on the couch without changing) in these shoes.

-Annie’s Mac and Cheese

I am a broke college student who is trying to save. I try to find cheap and good food to eat. Most of the time college students eat ramen noodles. BUT, I hate ramen. I’m sorry, I just don’t like it. But give me melted cheese, and I’m there. I love this mac and cheese. And I don’t know how healthy it really is, but since it’s Annie’s I feel like it’s moderately okay for me. Honestly, I don’t care. It’s really good.

Friday Fav’s

Yah, I’m hopping on the trend. Well, actually it’s 11:30 pm and I just drank Dr. Pepper and I don’t want to study for Macro Econ. I’m a communication major okay?!

So while I’m on this caffeine high and can’t stop thinking, I might as well batch some blog posts. Might as well be kinda productive while I procrastinate. Am I right, or am I right?

1.Grape Seed Oil

Okay, this stuff is magic. I don’t have terrible skin, but we all have our days. I struggle with cystic acne and dryness every once and a while. I usually apply this one a week (I use to apply it every day… my skin was literally glowing) with my fingers before I put on creams at night. I wait 30 minutes to an hour for it to soak in and then I apply my night cream. It has worked wonders. It soothes, tightens and brightens. You can also use it to cook with, but I have never done that. I got windburn on the back of my hands last year (I didn’t even know that was a thing) around the same time a friend got windburn on her face. I applied the oil morning and night along with lotion and my hands healed within days, her face too two weeks to heal fully. I told you, it’s magic.

2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer

I used the Anastasia Brow Wiz for YEARS. When they came out with the Brow Definer, I literally laughed. The tip is huge, how could it make your brows look natural?! You’d be shocked. I just restocked and I am in love with this brow pencil. It is so easy to apply and it takes me half the time. If you are doubting this pencil, go into a Sephora and ask them to test it on you. You won’t regret it! Well, unless the person applying it sucks at doing eye brows, go to the girl with the best brows and ask her.

3. These Mom Jeans

I really didn’t think mom jeans would look good on me. I have a very awkward body and I typically have to wear skinny jeans. But these jeans are affordable (I use afterpay) and super cute on. I always get tons of complements on them. When I was working at Anthropologie people would stop me all the time and ask me where I got them, thinking they were from Anthro and I spent a good $200 on them. Jokes on them, I bought them for $80 (still more than I’d like to spend) at Urban Outfitters!

4. Superga Sneakers

I got these for myself as a birthday gift last year, and I am still obsessed with them. I throw them on with anything and everything. They aren’t the comfiest, but they are super cute. Mine are a little scuffed and dirty now, but I personally like shoes that are a little dirtied up. They are like cheaper and less comfy Golden Goose shoes with out the branding. Right?

5. My Favorite Cardigan

I bought this at Anthropologie and let me tell you, it is worth it. I got a discount because I was working there (I definitely would not have bit the bullet if I didn’t have a discount) and it was the best thing purchased there. I wear it all the time. It is heavy enough to get me through a cold morning, but light enough to get me through the day. It is so flattering on, this pic does not give it justice. I am actually considering getting it in different colors… I got mine in brown and grey (which is out of stock unfortunately, they don’t like to restock). But I am obsessed with all of the colors. It is so cute and classic. It’ll definitely carry to next year.
