Thursday’s Fab Five

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

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.

Budget Beauty: Thayers Witch Hazel Lavender Toner

Toner. IS. Life.

No, really, toner is life.  It’s my favorite part of both my AM and PM skincare routine.  Why?  Well, it proves to me how clean my face truly is, and also makes my skin feel ready for the next steps of serum and moisturizer.

Since I love to try new products, I always bounce around from toner to toner…but the toner I’ve been using most recently is the perfect budget beauty buy.  Thayers Witch Hazel Toner can easily be found in Whole Foods or Target.  It’s a natural, alcohol free toner, that refreshes and cleanses the skin without stripping it of natural oils.

Prabal Gurung for Target

In case you didn’t know Prabal Gurung and Target have collaborated for a capsule collection hitting stores February 10th
Here’s what Gurung himself had to say about the collection, in an interview with Racked… 

 ” You know, the whole collection was based on the idea of love and just the idea of celebration. What I wanted people to feel was just a little bit, you know, happy about it!  Floral for me is perfect for a spring collection. Receiving flowers, smelling flowers. I don’t know—it just makes us all happy!”
I know I’ll def be hitting Target Feb 10, & I’m gonna do my best to pick up some my favorite looks from the collection, below!

Will you be purchasing anything from this collection?  Let me know!
  

RUN TO TARGET. NOW.

SERIOUSLY. RUN TO TARGET.
The Missoni for Target line is officially available in stores and online…except Target.com has been down since 7am this morning…soooooo I just suggest running to the store instead. 
The second I leave my internship at 3pm I’m driving over to Target and getting everything I see.  I stayed online until about 12:30am hoping they’d start selling it, but then I heard through Twitter it wouldn’t be available until the early morning.  BUTTT, when I woke up this morning at 7am Target.com was already overloaded and shut down. Boo.
The line ends October 22nd, and we all know the ridiculous amount of press and super-hype this collaboration has gotten, so if you’re interested in anything I suggest you try to get it ASAP!

Missoni for Target

Missoni + Target = bank account death.  
Just kidding, nobody’s bank account will be dying because everything is reasonably priced! YAY.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about then listen up because this is super important.  
If you can’t afford this thousands of dollars blazer on Kate Moss…DON’T WORRY!
Missoni, famous for its colorful zig-zag pattern on almost every celebrity and model imaginable has teamed up with Target for a mega diffusion line.  This has been talked about for forever, highly anticipated, and all budgets aside…every person in the world is excited for the line’s release on September 13th. 
I’ve read countless articles about the line, and New York Magazine’s fashion blog, The Cut put up a slide show yesterday of some of the pieces.  This is by far Target’s smartest diffusion line so far, I plan on being at the store right when it opens (since I don’t have to be at work that day until 9:30am!!).  I’ll be grabbing everything and anything….kinda like a crazy person but I really don’t care…maybe I’ll turn into Supergirl and be able to grab all 400 items by the end of the day from both in-store and online.  But then again, maybe not.
Prices range from $2.99 to $599 — most under $40.  The line includes clothing, accessories, homeware (plates, sheets, etc.), luggage, and even an amazing bicycle.
