Thursday's Fab Five

So, I’m going to start doing a Thursday series called Thursday’s Fab Five,
which will be my five favorite products or things from the week!
Yay, let’s get started!!
Thursday's Fab Five
1. Laura Mercier Pink Mosaic Shimmer Bloc
This is def a Laura staple.  I love this highlighter, the colors meld together perfectly.  
I love to use the gold-ish pink on my lids and the lightest pink [on the bottom] 
on the top of my cheekbones.  Shop it from Sephora, here

2. The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel 
I’m clearly way too ready for spring/ summer.  Smells great and refreshing!  
Check it out, here! PS: Apparently the packaging has changed. 

3. Bath and Body Works ‘Lemon Mint Leaf’ Candle
My apartment literally smells absolutely amazing with this candle.  It’s clean, refreshing, 
and powerful, but in a good way! 
This candle is from B&BW’s new “Fresh Picked” line! 

4. Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35
Now since I haven’t been spray tanning as much [due to complete lack of time] 
it took me awhile to finally open this up.  BUT, now that I’m back on track & tanned, 
I’ve been using this every day this week…and I haven’t put on any other makeup.  
Forrealz.  It makes my skin look ah-mazing, and a little goes a long way.  Read 
more about it, here!   

5. Karuna Hydrating Treatment Mask
I have a post of this set for Monday, this is my new obsession.  Birchbox introduced 
me to it, which has made me love Birchbox even more, which I didn’t know was possible. 
If anyone has tried out any of my favorites from this week, I’d love to know your
opinions & your favorites as well! xo. 

December Favorites

I’m going to try to make sure I do a favorites post at the beginning of every month of the products, accessories, and whatever else I was obsessed with during the previous month– in no particular order! 

Essie ‘Bobbing for Baubles’ and Deborah Lippman ‘I Love the Nightlife’


I love these polishes so much and sported these nails on New Year’s Eve and a few more times throughout the past month.  I’m obsessed with the glitter, although beware, it’s not easy to take off.  At all. 
Wine Bites

I bought this book at the Water Club hotel in Atlantic City, they had an amazing store called Vintage, it was basically a wine tasting store with tons of choices and different tasting sizes.  They had a cute gift section and when I saw this book, Wine Bites, I knew I needed it.  For Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s I made their Salmon and Caper Dip.  I’ve also made their Crabmeat Dip and amazing little cheese puffs, fancy term, Gougeres. (All in the pics below)  I’m truly obsessed with this book it has amazing little appetizers and gives suggestions for wine pairings with each one. 

The Lovely Bones

I love to read books on my phone, it’s super easy and convenient to be able to read wherever I want to, whenever I want to.  Many people have told me how great this novel is, and I’ve been meaning to read it for a while now.  So far I’m loving this book, the story is heart wrenching, but it’s written so well– I’m sure the movie doesn’t do it justice.  If you’re interested check it out here on Amazon. 

I loveeeee the scent of this holiday body butter.  It’s not overpowering, and the smell of cranberry is great.  It was a perfect choice for the holiday season, and as always, the Body Shop’s body butter is great for the winter weather. 

Bvlgari’s Eau Parfumee White Tea

My mom bought this perfume a while ago, I has used it a few times, but for some reason I decided I really loved it so I basically stole it from my mom. You can find it at any department store, or here on the Sephora website.  According to Sephora it has notes of artemisia leaves, ambrette, white pepper, white tea, musk, and woody amber.  I think it smells clean and fresh, and you can wear it day or night.  It smells mature and classy, which sounds weird, but if you can a chance to try it out you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about!
