Friday Favorites | November 2017

Friday posts are always my favorite to read for some reason- it's so fun to read random bits of everyone's week, or see what people have been loving lately.

I started reading Anxious For Nothing: Finding Calm in a Chaotic World with the P31 online bible study and I have been loving it. Anxiety is a hard thing to talk about, or even put into words, but I've constantly found myself nodding along with what I'm reading and constantly underlining and highlighting.

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark has been my treat of choice lately. As someone who struggles with self control when it comes to candy, I love that these are individually wrapped, and they're rich enough that you really do feel satisfied with just one (or maybe two).

I practiced pretty good self control during the Sephora sale, mainly just because two of the things I really wanted were out of stock before I could order, but I did resist adding anything else to my cart. I restocked on my day time moisturizer, the trusty Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion+. I'm really excited to try the new Lancome mascara, and I'm finally going to try the avocado eye cream because my under eyes definitely need a little TLC. Even though it has amazing reviews, I was always a little put off by it because I don't like avocado, but I'm hoping it won't bother me.

I also got this Becca kit, mainly for the Backlight primer, because I'm almost out of the one I got in this post, and it's probably my favorite primer I've ever used, but I definitely didn't need the full-size. I'm also really excited to try the under eye corrector that comes with the kit.


The holiday season is always a little crazy, but it's such a great time to give back where you can. We have to miss the turkey outreach at our church this weekend, but we're hoping to put together a few baskets to drop off at SOME next weekend. If you're local to the DC area they're collecting baskets through the 20th!

On the subject of Thanksgiving, does anyone have any favorite appetizers?

  1. Do you feel like Dark Chocolate sort of satiates the sweet tooth more than any other type - like I'm good with one piece if it's dark chocolate LOL! That's one of my favorite mascara's right now - hope you like it too! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  9. I have been using that Becca under eye corrector for a few months and it might be the first and only product that I’ve ever felt like was truly worth all the hype. It’s amazing! Also, good to know you like the primer. I got a trial size of a Cover FX one a while back that I loved enough to purchase the full size, but now I’m just meh about it. I’ve yet to try a Becca product I didn’t like though so I may have to try that primer next!

  11. Mm dark chocolate peppermint sounds fabulous! That Becca kit looks awesome! Maybe I need to scoop it up. I would like to try that primer since its your favorite. I saw that Lancome had that new mascara and forgot to grab a mini during the sale. Oopsy. Let me know your thoughts and if I need it after you have played with it.

    We go to Chris's parents house for Thanksgiving lunch, and my mom's house for dinner. Chris's mom doesn't do apps because she makes a million sides. My mom usually does a meat/cheese tray and has a fancy box of assorted chocolates out to snack on every year before the meal.

  12. Dark chocolate peppermint bark? YES PLEASE! I'm going to add that book to my TBR list - it sounds like something I might relate to right now. Anxiety can be so hard to talk about/understand, so I appreciate when a book on that topic resonates with someone. Hope you're having a good weekend!

  13. Dark chocolate peppermint bark is my jam! I only care about the holidays for that reason. Ok, that's not entirely true but still. And can't wait to hear what you think about that mascara! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  16. I think that this Sephora sale was the first time that I actually practiced self control too! I didn't get any makeup except for a refill on my foundation, and everything else was face products that I needed to restock on. I don't know if it was because of the girls or what, but my wallet definitely appreciated it!
