To the weekend

Happy Friday! After a long week, I’m excited to have a little down time. When work is exhausting, you have to remember to treat yourself to a little rest and relaxation to recharge for the week ahead.

This week I splurged on a new face powder to help reach my ideal beauty bag, scored some cute Christmas cards at Rifle Paper Co. (15% off holiday finds through Monday!), and spent some well-deserved time with friends. I hope you have a lovely weekend – read on for some of my favorite finds this week.

TINY BEAUTY: STOWAWAY

Have you ever noticed how you never really finish a tube of lipstick? Or an eyeliner? So did Stowaway. They came up with some facts that make it seem a lot more reasonable to buy their smaller products: 75% of the average consumer doesn’t routinely finish their makeup. The average consumer owns almost 40 makeup products but only use and carries 5 of them daily. What are we doing!? Stowaway has products that are the right size for you to use them up before they expire (and they’re also adorable). Enter to win a free kit, or shop individual products here.

I am always looking for the best ways to look more awake on those sleepy mornings that never seem to end. Allure Beauty gave their tips and tricks for looking alert when you’re anything but – including beige eyeliner, a swipe of blush, and lots of hydration. (And a quick mani, if you have the time.) Read on for their suggestions!

LOOK SPOOKY

I’ve been brainstorming great costumes for Halloween – it’s right around the corner! It can be hard to come up with something original. I like to stick to the classics, but do them very well. Last year Eric and I were cowboys (we were really excited about it) so keeping with that theme, we’re going for cop and robber this year. I’m taking over the cop costume, and I’m so excited to get all of the details! Check out some more of my favorite ideas on my Pinterest board.
