Thursday’s Fab Five

Happy Thursday’s Fab Five! Are you ready for fall? I’m so ready for fall. I think I’m too ready for fall. It’s still hot here in D.C. but we’ve seen some glimmer of a cooler season ahead, and I cannot wait. While I patiently wait, here are some of my current end of summer fab faves.

OPI’s My Very First Knockwurst, $10.50

This is my current nail color, and I’m loving the simplicity of it. I thought it was perfect for the back to school mindset & the rosey-nude-ish color is a great transition in this end of summer time.

Thursday’s Fab Five

DC is hot, hot, hot! No really, it’s been hot af with no rain in sight. Argh. Anyway, here are some of my recent warm weather faves I’ve been reaching for on the reg!

Neutrogena Beach Defense Sunscreen SPF 30, $9

It’s pool & beach season, which means we all need to apply, and reapply, the SPF! This is my favorite sunscreen because it’s spray, so it is easy to apply, and 30 is just enough SPF for me to get a decent tan and not burn. I reapply often especially if I’m in the water a lot, but I love that it doesn’t smell weird or give me any sticky feeling. It’s on sale at Ulta right now, so stock up for the summer! They also have Beach Defense in 70 and 100 SPF if you want to block out all signs of the sun!

Happy Thursday, y’all! I don’t know about you, but 2019 is flying by for me, and it’s a little overwhelming to be honest!! I’ve been super neglectful over here on LLB, but my content calendar is ready to go for May, and I have a ton of new posts coming your way. I figured what better way to get back into the swing of things then with a little Fab Five to brighten up your Friday Eve. The first thing I’ve been loving recently is…

Jade Roller,$32

Everything you read about a jade roller is…absolutely F’ing true. I’m obsessed with my jade roller and it wasn’t until recently that I really started to use it consistently for results. First of all, you can’t beat the relaxing massage feeling you get after a long day at work. It’s amazing. I’ve been using it pretty routinely after applying all of my night serums/ moisturizers, so it’s helping those products sink into my skin. The bonus small roller for under and over eyes is the bestttttttttt to use in the morning to drain excess fluid from underneath your eyes. Quality jade rollers aren’t that expensive- but if you buy a super inexpensive one, don’t be surprised if the roller ball comes loose and breaks, I’ve had this happen to a few friends before. I think this one is at the perfect price point- the one I have is out of stock on Amazon, but this one is comparable to price and reviews.

Thursday’s Fab Five

This has been the longest week, ever. Teaching first grade has been the best move of my life, but oh my goshhhhh the days are tiring. I’m really looking forward to doing absolutely nothing this weekend! Until then, here are some of my current favorites from the last couple of weeks.

Mer-Sea & Co. Salt Soak, $10

You can find these luxurious bath salts in Anthropologie, and let me tell you, they’re amazing! You have three different choices of soaks, Bergamot Fleur, Coconut Sugar, & Vanilla Milk. Your bathroom will smell so amazing after using this salt soak, and you don’t need to over do it, I use just about a handful each bath. I highly suggest trying all of them! I also love the packaging, it’s a great addition to any bathroom shelf!

Happy 2019 everyone! I’m so happy to be starting a new year and can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store. I’m here today to share my current Fab Five, featuring some gifts from the holidays! I would love to know what has been on your favorites list recently, so feel free to share below, or Tweet me @elizabethmayce.

Rifle Paper & Co. Celebrations Calendar, $26

It’s really important to me to remember friend birthdays, and other special dates- but, sometimes I slack. I love this celebration calendar because I can reuse it every year, all you do is write down the birthdays / special events for each month next to the date. I try to put special dates in my iCal, but I always like a written reminder as well. & seriously, anything from Rifle Paper & Co. is gorgeous, so it’s a nice addition to my office.

Happy Thursday!  I hope you all had a relaxing & enjoyable Thanksgiving.  I loved being up in Jersey with my family and friends, Thanksgiving is always a special time.  I’m now in the Christmas spirit, ready to take on this holiday season!

With all the business of life, I have a few new products and things in my favorites lineup.  Check out what I’ve been loving this month, and leave a comment, or Tweet me, some of your recent favorites.  I’m always looking for new and exciting products!

Tarte’s Pineapple of my Eye Collector Set, $59

I bought this super cute Pineapple palette when Sephora first released their holiday gifts.  I think this is the perfect Christmas gift for the makeup lover in your life.  The eye shadows in the palette are amazing, although you want to make sure to use a shadow primer since there is some fallout.  I love the mascara and lip tint that comes with it too, it’s totally worth $60, and makes for an awesome holiday gift.

Happy Thursday!  Fall is in full swing, okay not really but, I’m speaking into existence…

…anyway, fall is here, yay!  D.C. has been hot all week, but apparently we’re getting cooler weather this weekend so, I’m here for it.

So, what have I been loving for the last couple of weeks?  Check it out below & leave me your favorites in the comments!

Yankee Candle in ‘Spiced Pumpkin’, $22

The totally quintessential fall candle, it smells like a pumpkin, and will fill your whole room with the scent of fall.  It’s not a sweet smell which I really appreciate too.  Bonus, it’s currently on sale through Macy’s, so make sure to click the link above to save some $$$.

Happy Thursday!  There’s been so much going on recently, all great things, & I’m so happy to be back today to share five of my recent favorites.

Yes to Detoxifying Charcoal Paper Mask, $3 

I spoke about this mask on my Insta-stories last week because Target was & still is, having a 25% off sale on all Yes To products!  I love a good charcoal mask, but the application & clean up process can sometimes be a bit too much, if ya know what I mean.  Having a charcoal mask in sheet mask form, especially with a ton of product on it, is perfect for a Wednesday night.  The fit could be a tiny bit better but given how budget friendly this mask is, it’s really no big deal.
