Friday Favorites: Motivation

Anyone who knows me (or follows my blog) should know that I am all for positivity and inspiring others.  More specifically, I love to motivate and inspire women to understand their beauty and capabilities as well.

One of my favorite things to do is read from an uplifting book before I go to bed or as soon as I wake up in the morning.  I'm one of those people who highlights quotes that I like and then I go back and read them over and over again as the days go on.  It's something that motivates me and keeps my focus.

See below for some of my favorite quotes, currently:

Friday Favorites: What I Love to do on Rainy Days

It's been pretty rainy lately so I haven't been able to do any outdoor photo shoots, but sometimes rainy days can be great down time to catch up with projects or do things that you only do on days like these.  Here are some of my favorite things to do on rainy/gloomy days:

I love reading inspirational books and this is one of my favorite books at the moment!

When it's rainy outside, it can be relaxing to give myself a mani-pedi at home.

Organization - raiding my closet and cleaning it out or re-organizing shoes

Cooking pho is the PERFECT rainy day soup

Friday Favorites: Health & Beauty

Happy Friday, guys and dolls!  I love trying out new products, and these items are some of my favorites at the moment.  Some of them were featured in previous posts from MyGlam bag or other posts as well.    I highly recommend the following items, however.

I love this nail polish as an added layer to the tip of another color (i.e. neon yellow or bubble gum pink)

This item came in my Cosmopolitan Splash 2012 gift bag and it's great for my hair when I'm at the beach or by the pool because I can add some moisture to my hair quickly

This lip gloss was featured in myGlam bag yesterday, but it's my new favorite go-to beauty item.  It keeps my lips moist throughout the day and feels amazing.  

This item was gifted, but it's the BEST full body exfoliation product that I've ever tried.  It's handmade, smells delicious, and makes my skin feel smooth after applying it.

Friday Favorites: Products of the Week

As promised, I am back for another round of my Friday Favorites to showcase my product choices of the week.  I've been using these products regularly throughout the week (or month) and I absolutely love them.  What are some of your favorite items that you use often?

Friday Favorites

The following items are some of my favorite health, beauty, home or fashionable items for the week.  However, the bulk of my chosen items are beauty products with a few fashion pieces.  These are products that I highly recommend or have been using often this week.  I was not endorsed or compensated to review any of the items below.  Mouse over any of the products to purchase them for yourself!

This Studio 35 Beauty product is amazing.  I wear shorts, skirts and dresses often so this is one of my favorite beauty products.  The way it works is that you spray it all over your legs, let it dry for about 5-10 minutes, then put your clothes on.  It leaves your legs looking flawless!




I use this eyebrow shaping kit by Benefit every day.  It includes highlighting tones, dark brow shades, cream shadows for shading, a miniature tweezers, as well as a small angled brush to apply with.  I received this kit from a fashion show, but it's also available at ULTA stores.




For those of you who use heat on your hair often (blow dryers, curling irons, flat irons, etc.), I highly recommend spraying it with this Aussie heat protecting spray.  It leaves your hair feeling soft and doesn't allow the heat to damage your hair.




These are a few of my favorite accessories of the week: 1) Studded leather collar necklace 2) Leopard belt 3) Gold watch







 
 

LUSH has some of the most amazing bath/beauty products!  I actually purchased these items around the holiday season and I gifted various items to my friends.  All of their products are hand-made and they smell good too.  Included in this box is a bath bubble bar and a bath bomb.  The bath bubble bar is dropped in the water of a bath and it produces bubbles, while the bath bomb creates a great smelling bath that is really relaxing.  These make the perfect gifts because they are gift wrapped and of premium quality!

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, lovers!  For today's post I decided to showcase some of my favorite health, beauty, home or fashionable items for the week.  These are items that I recently purchased and have been using often or I highly recommend to you.



























Since it's been a little chilly lately, I have been wearing a lot of hats and scarfs and my latest hat fetish includes fedoras.  
























































Those who know me must know that I absolutely love candles, and I probably go through them in two weeks.  Anyway, this peppermint cranberry candle smells so good (available at Target).



























I've been using this ELF eyeshadow palette this past week, and it's great because it has 100 shades in almost every color option.  I also found this beauty at Target for only $10.  They had other palettes for $5 as well.



























This clutch was actually gifted, but I love the detailing and color of it.  It's classic with the gold clasp and chain.  What's also great about it is that the chain can be worn with it as a shoulder bag or removed as a clutch.
























































Since having a baby, I've been very conscience about my diet and work out regimen.  I have been getting a lot of questions regarding what I eat, how I lost my baby weight, and what my work out plan consists of.  I'll post more at a later date, but for now I want to highlight these LUNA nutrition bars.  I LOVE these bars.  They are ideal for women because the calorie content isn't really high, but you still get a high enough amount of protein in each bar.



























Essie is one of my favorite nail polish brands.  Lately, I have been switching out these three tones: 1) Buy me a Cameo 2) Clambake and 3) Sand Tropez.  You can purchase Essie at almost any drugstore or generic store.



























Last but not least, these Steve Madden booties are definitely one of my favorites.  The first time I spotted them was while window shopping on Lincoln Road and I knew that I had to have them.  I actually wore these babies for New Year's Eve.  They are extremely comfortable too.

What are some of your favorite items?
