This is definitely a happy Friday for me! It’s my birthday weekend and tonight Matt is taking me out for dinner (location is a surprise) to celebrate! On Sunday I turn the big 3-0 and I honestly cannot believe it! But then I catch my wrinkles in the mirror and totally can.
|Happy 4 year friendship anniversary and 31st birthday, Laura!!|
To kick off the birthday celebrations my birthday twin bestie and I are getting pedicures this afternoon. Funny short story – Laura and I met through blogging 208 weeks ago. We were loyal blog readers of each others for awhile before we ever met in person. Then one special birthday 4 years ago we ran into each other while celebrating our birthday dinners at our favorite restaurant – Cowfish. And we were wearing the exact same dress. It was then that we knew we were destined to be besties. Fast forward 4 years later, Laura and Andrew are some of our very best friends now!
Okay, I know, I know I promised a five!
My sister was in town earlier this week for a night! Prior to her arrival she shipped my birthday present down early so she wouldn’t have to check a bag. Anyway, I am so obsessed with the new products she added to my skincare collection that I must share!
So this is my current line up of favorite face products. And it just so happens that I love all 5 equally. Some of these I’ve mentioned before and two of them are my new birthday prezzies. However, they all deserve a shout out for being amazing. If your skin starts to freak out a little bit during the cooler temps you should consider trying some (or ALL) of these…
one // Mario Badescu Facial Spray. Not new to the blog but definitely worthy of mentioning again. This refreshing facial spray contains aloe, herbs and rose water and makes for a perfect setting spray! And it’s only $7!
two // Mindful Minerals Get Dirty Mud Mask. My sister has been using this for awhile and surprised me with a bottle for one of my birthday gifts. I am loving it. It’s tingly after it sets in and feels SOOO good when you wash it off. You all know I have major skin woes and this stuff clears away all my dead skin and leaves my skin feeling refreshed.
three. Clinique Moisture Surge. Hands down, the best moisturizer I’ve ever used and I’ve tried a LOT.
four. Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing Soap. Another gift from my seester (she’s been using for over a year) and I am obsessed with how refreshing this daily cleansing soap is. Also, it smells heavenly. Mario Badescu just doesn’t disappoint!
five. Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask. I use this on top of my moisturizer at night. It adds an additional silky layer of moisturizer to my face and in the morning I can totally tell a difference. This is definitely a product to have on hand for winter!
Happy weekend, friends!
