Friday Favorites!

It's Friday, loves!  For this week's round of Friday Favorites, I have included some of my favorite beauty and fashion items.  I also added a few healthy lifestyle items.  I was not compensated for this blog post nor was I asked to write about the following brands.

This "Rich Girl" lipstick is one of my favorite beauty items.  I use this almost every day!  I received this particular one at a fashion show; however, I'm sure they carry it at Sephora or ULTA.

Since I am quite the "busy mama" lately, I thought that this planner was cute and keeps me organized.  I like to keep my life clean and organized so this can really help a lady out sometimes!

Although wearing heels is great, sometimes I need to rock some flats.  Therefore, I like to carry these flats around with me from time to time so I can just throw them on if necessary.

I've been using this Line Stiletto liquid eyeliner by Maybelline for quite some time now.  It's great if you are looking to create a nice cat eye.

This purse is the perfect daytime handbag, and I've been using it almost every day this week.  It was gifted from ALDO.

Last but not least, I received these inspirational books and affirmations yesterday!  I love positive literature.  As most of you know, I believe that whatever you desire can come to you as long as you remain positive about your life.  I hope you enjoyed Friday Favorites.  Enjoy your weekend!

Friday Favorites

It's time for another round of Friday Favorites!  See below for some of my favorite items of the week, whether it be beauty, health, home, or fashion items.  I was not compensated or paid by any of the following brands to review these products.

These Sephora Nail Bling Strips come in multiple different styles.  I don't think they are as great as the Sally Hansen nail strips, but they ultimately have the same effect.

Can you hear the music playing now?
The most delicious macaroons I have ever tasted.  I picked these up at a local farmer's market where different vendors from South Florida sell all of their treats and some days they also sell vintage clothing!  Anyway, these were delish!

Sephora had these available around the holiday season, as they serve as the perfect gift!  Included inside are twelve different perfumes that you can try.  I love it because it allows me to try all of them out and decide which one I truly want to purchase.  What is also great about it is that it comes with an interchangeable fragrance atomizer that you place each sample inside of. 
There were various sets, but mine included the following perfume selections: Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir, Clinique Happy, Coach Poppy Flower, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue, DKNY pureDKNY Verbena, Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioa, Givenchy Very Irresistible L'Intense, Gucci Guilty, Juicy Couture, Marc Jacobs Daisy, Prada Infusion D'Iris and Versace Bright Crystal.  Once the samples are finished, the voucher can be taken into any Sephora and redeemed for a fragrance!
I have a few different kinds of foundations that I use, but I am very pleased with this NARS Sheer Matte foundation in Tahoe.  My skin type is regular/oily, so I typically go for the matte foundations.  It blends easily, keeps my skin looking fresh and leaves no oily residue either. 
Here are a few of my favorite books:  Book of Secrets by Deepak Chopra, A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey, and Good to Great by Jim Collins.  I read a lot of motivational or inspirational books because I am all for positivity in my life.  I believe that whatever you put out into the world is what comes back to you: the law of attraction!
