Friday Favorites


I stumbled on “21 Pictures that will restore your faith in humanity” and every single one made me smile …and tear a up a bit.

I’m LOVING this shift dress.

This cracked me up. Cause seriously, I want to lose the baby weight but when I wake up from a briefly slept night, covered in milk and feeling like I haven’t eaten in days, I just can’t find it in me to make good food decisions. I’ll start Monday for sure:)

But when I do get up the energy? I’m makin’ this for sure.

I picked out some of my all time favorite Dior Beauty products for a fun campaign with Dior+Nordstrom – which mostly happened to be for the lips – and rounded them up to share their amazingness…

From top left:

Lip Maximizer: OK so if you are one of those people who want a little plump in their pout but hate for it to sting (or your husband complains about it:) This is your new BFF. It plumps up your lips without an ounce of sting and it’s a perfect color to wear alone (adding a touch of pink) or wear over top of anything you choose (it’s pale enough it won’t fight for the spotlight)

Lip Balm: This petal pink balm not only softens your lips to perfection it also has the most luscious rose smell not to mention it has collagen to fill in the lips as well. I know, it’s a lot to spend on a lip balm but sometimes it’s having those little luxuries in everyday things that I love the most.

Lip Glow: I found this a while back when Emily Maynard posted about it, saying it was her favorite lip color because it’s a self adjusting pink and looks different on each person. I was skeptical that it actually went on everyone different but by now I’ve tried it on enough women and seen it go to their perfect pink enough times that I call myself a believer. If I was only allowed to wear one lipstick for the rest of my life I think I’d have to pick this beauty.

Dior Show Maximizer: This was the first ever lash primer that I tried. I was immediately impressed by the way it thickened and doubled my lashes but I had nothing to compare it to. I kind of figured that all lash primers would do the same thing. Then one by one I tried bundles more and have yet to find one that I think even comes close! No wonder it’s such a cult classic.

Happy Friday hope you have a lovely weekend!

    I’ve been lusting over the Creme de Rose lip balm for over a year… it might be time to splurge!

    Wow. Thank you for sharing those photos. I’m still crying a bit. It inspires me to be less cynical and to think of how I could go out of my way to show extraordinary kindness. Praise Jesus!!!

    I completely agree with your review of the Dior lash primer. I too have tried so many different ones (Lancôme, sheseido, etc.) and this one blows those out of the water in terms of thickening and lengthening the eyelashes.
