Friday Five // Vol. 7

Friday, December 23, 2016

It feels like I haven't done a Friday Five post in quite some time! Now, I realize it's right before the holidays, but hopefully you still have a chance to stop by to take a peek at what I'm loving right now. Plus, all of these double as great last minute gifts (hint hint: the La Croix holiday case for sure!) or a little extra something just in time for New Year's Eve!

Also, a quick heads up about what's coming to the blog on a Sunday - my Christmas morning look! If you have been following the blog for some time, you might remember this post from last year and this one from 2014 (#RIPbangs). Can't wait to share something extra awesome with Aerie so soon! Now, read on to check out what's on my mind this week.



  • it Cosmetics Brow Power Pencil: I just tried a few products c/o the amazing team over at It Cosmetics, and I'm obsessed! Currently, my day-to-day routine includes this amazing brow pencil and this lip liner. I've done a fair amount of research on the brand but am excited to keep using their products and see if I personally see results for redness and acne by using some of their other products. Have any of you used the brand before? Would love to hear your takeaways!
  • J.Crew Tech Gloves: I actually just purchased two sets of gloves because my other ones were not cutting it. I'm pretty sure the gloves I was using were a free pair from my grandma... I know - totally not hi-tech! So, because it's wayyy to cold to take my gloves off to use my phone, I decided I had to fix that. I love that these J.Crew gloves because they don't have that silly silver finger tip, it's just the little slit. Genius!
  • La Croix Holiday Case: Did you know La Croix just released their first ever Holiday Variety Pack? My office is addicted to this yummy drink. I really don't drink much soda, but I love the carbonation - La Croix is perfect because it's just sparkling water! Same fizz with out all the calories. Every year, my family does a $25 gift exchange with my cousins. I picked up a food related item for $15 (I can't tell you what it is because I know my sister is reading hehe) and am seriously considering adding this to it. I might just become the favorite cousin after that :) This case is filled with Tangerine, Berry and Cran-Raspberry varieties. So, whether you have a last minute gift to grab or not, this will surely help you through the hectic holidays with ease!
  • H&M Sequin Top: This is the first year I'm actually headed out on the town with friends to celebrate NYE. Usually, we have a fun night in playing games, watching the countdown on TV and enjoying snacks and cocktails. I'm determined to find a chic and sparkly number like this top from H&M to dance the night away. It's cute and isn't too over powering so I know I'll wear it again!
  • Ban.do Phone Charger: If I've learned one thing over the past few months of traveling, it's that I need an on-the-go phone charger. I don't have one yet, but it's on my list of items to get. Or maybe if I get any fun gift cards this Christmas, I'll already know where to spend it! The ban.do options are especially cute!
Merry Christmas everyone!!
