Friday Favs


So I have decided I’m going to introduce some Friday Favorites posts to give me the opportunity to share with you some completely random things I am currently obsessed with. I won’t do it every Friday but once again when I have some really great stuff rounded up! So without further ado….


I have horrible skin, like it honestly it hates everything and is very dry. I have bad eczema and get extremely itchy from lotions with mineral oils and anything with a scent. I am always looking for moisturizers to help keep my skin hydrated and calm especially in the winter. This Jergens Moisturizer for wet skin has been amazing and has kept my skin soft and moisturized all winter and the best thing about it is how easy it is! I keep this is my shower and you put it on when you are still wet BEFORE you towel off to help lock in the moisture. Also once I dry off I can get dressed right away without worrying about getting the lotion on my clothes.


So as I just mentioned by skin is horrible and my nails have been breaking and peeling like crazy so after reading a post about these Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies I knew I needed to try them! I have only been taking them for a couple of weeks and they taste really good and I have been noticing a change already in my nails.


I love the idea of having “a scent”. My mom has always wore and still does wear Oscar perfume and I love that the scent of that perfume alone can bring thoughts and memories from my childhood and of my mom. Last year I was hell bent on finding my scent. I had narrowed it down to the Marc Jacobs collection but couldn’t decided on the specific perfume. My sister bought me the 3 pack (one of them is not photographed as its at work) of roll on perfume sticks for Christmas and I still haven’t been able to choose one but I love them all. Not only do I love the smell of them but I also love the convince of the roll on sticks. I am horrible for remembering to put on perfume in the morning. I would like to say I have this great morning routine but its typically hectic. These sticks are great because I keep one in my purse, one in my desk drawer and one in my bathroom so whenever I remember to put it on I have one readily available.


This Sally Hanson complete Salon Manicure in the Colour Earl Grey has been my go too colour lately and I have been adding a glitter accent nail for fun as you can see in this photo. I like that this colour goes with everything and its grey like the weather but doesn’t make me look super pale. This nail polish has been my go to for the past few years as I find it lasts for almost a week but I suggest doing 2 layers with a clear coat on top and giving lots of time for drying in between layers.


I have been having trouble falling asleep lately. It seems everything I need to do and all the problems of the world creep into my head just as I laydown to close my eyes. I have started adding a cup of camomile tea to my nighttime routine and it has honestly been helping so much at calming my nerves and helping me fall and stay asleep. I really like this kind as it has the added flavours of spearmint and orange for a delicious combination.

Well I hope you enjoyed my Friday favorites and maybe found something new to try. If you do end up trying any of these I would love to hear about it! I hope you all have a great weekend, I am off for manicures with my sister and cousin tonight and a much needed girls night Saturday!
