Thursday’s Fab Five

Happy Thursday everyone! Most importantly… 
Happy 23rd Birthday [old] to one of my best friends, MS. PAULINA VERA! 
Or, better known as my Pauli-olli-olli
I’ve been super busy wrapping up my graduate classes & applying to approx 948424759275093 jobs, so sorry for skipping a Fab Five last week, but now I’m back on track! [Well, kinda]
1. Essie ‘Turquoise and Caicos’
This is my polish of the week and…it makes me want to go on vacation.  Hm, I wonder why?  But really, this is a staple Essie color for the summer, and one of my personal favorites!
2. Grey Goose Vodka
I love Grey Goose for many reasons.  #1, it’s my favorite alcoholic beverage [mix with seltzer & lime and I’m golden] and #2, it’ll zap a breakout overnight– which is why it’s in my Fab Five this week.  The extremely hot and gross heatwave mixed with my apartment not turning the air conditioning on caused me to have a horrific breakout.  SO, my esthetician at Clarins told me to mix some vodka with a crushed aspirin, spread it on the breakout, and wake up the next morning looking perfect.  Well, I did just that, and it was actual magic.
3. Clarins Truly Matte Hydra-Matte Lotion 
In the warmer weather I need to be matte, like…super matte.  I had a facial at Clarins last week and used this product and it was seriously amazeballs.  I was looking to change up my summer AM moisturizer, and this one has done the trick all week, I’m verrryyy happy with it!  It’s perfect for sensitive skin [I tend to have redness] and eliminates all shine.  So far so good! 
4.  Food Should Taste Good Multigrain Chips
My new favorite snack food!  These are so yum, have flax, sunflower, and sesame seeds, AND is nomilicious with any dip, hummus, salsa, whatever.  Basically, they’re just great…and most importantly healthy.  If you’re looking to spice up your snacking, try these out!
5. Sam Edelman ‘Gigi’ Sandals
I have these in ‘black boa’ and ‘silver boa’, and I feel I need them in ‘saddle’ and ‘shocking pink/cork’.  They’re comfy, will match anything, and they’re just super easy for an every day sandal.  I highly suggest everyone own a pair…or two…or four.  & to put it plainly, I just love me some Sam Edelman!
xo – enjoy rest of the week & weekend!
