Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!!  I’ll be in a continuing legal education class all day today, but if I have to be in a CLE course, at least it’s on a rainy, yucky day, and Wheat will be there with me!

Before all the fun kicks off (there really ought to be a sarcasm font), I thought I’d pop in and share some things I’ve been loving this week.

1. All Things L’Oreal (Apparently)

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara, Blackest Black
NEW L’oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder
L’Oreal Paris Infallible Lacquer Eyeliner 24H, Espresso

This stuff is all amazing.  I ran out of my Bobbi Brown foundation and I’ve read a ton of reviews on this L’Oreal foundation claiming that it’s an exact formula dupe for Giorgio Armani’s foundation.  I tried it out yesterday, and while I haven’t tried the Giorgio Armani foundation, this stuff is amaze balls for a drugstore foundation.  It’s definitely comparable to my Bobbi Brown, and I don’t think I’ll miss it.  I was really surprised at how silky smooth the texture was and how smoothly it went on.  I just poured a tiny bit on the back of my hand and used a brush to apply it.

Another supposed dupe is this L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara, which is supposed to be similar to Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara.  I’ve never used They’re Real, but I’ve heard awesome reviews on both, so I picked this one up on a whim, too.  It’s pretty great!  A before and after pic was necessary, I felt.

Also pictured in the bottom pic is the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Lacquer Eyeliner.  This stuff is awesome.  I’ve blogged about it before, and I already had it in Navy.  But I picked up Espresso yesterday and I love it.

2. Keds Purple Tennies

I don’t care how dorky this makes me look.  I have worn Keds
my entire life, they fit my strangely narrow and flat feet like a glove, and they are perfect for wearing on lunch time errands on a spring-like day.  I’m ready for summer.  Besides, they can’t be that dorky if Kate Spade is in on the Keds action.

3. Strawberry Season

I’ll be baking a strawberry cake this weekend.  Don’t you fret.

4. Recipe Info-graphics

I’ve been seeing recipe info-graphics pop up all over the inter webs lately.  I think it’s such a great visual way to write down a recipe!

5. Girl Scout Cookies

No explanation necessary.  These are simply dangerous.

I am SO glad it’s Friday!  Stay safe and dry out there in these storms, East Coasters.  I hope everyone has a splendid weekend!  We are having our annual Sweetwater camping trip tomorrow night, so my weekend recap post should be sufficiently ridiculous next week… so you can all look forward to that.

Cheers!

Until Next Time
