TGIF! 2.10.17

Happy Friday!! This weekend Will and I are flying to Reno to visit our family and friends. I try to visit Reno every 2-3 months. My family came to LA this year for the holidays so I don't think I've been back to Reno since September maybe? I can't even remember honestly.
It's my mom's 71st birthday so we get to celebrate with her on Saturday. I can't wait to see my parents and spend some good quality time with them. Even though it's a quick visit, I know it'll be great.
Have a great weekend!!

January Favorites!

Wow! The first month of 2017 has come and gone! Goodbye January, hello February!
January flew by! I hardly had time to try any new products. But I did have a few items I loved this month that I wanted to include in a favorites post.

Favorite Eye Shadow: Too Faced  'Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection Palette'
I received this palette for my birthday from my sister-in-law and I can't even express how excited I was. I've been waiting to get this palette since forever ago when it was limited and sold out in every Sephora. I knew I would love this palette because it's all about the warm peachy-colors. I love browns and reds and pinks for eyeshadow. It's a good palette for an every day look and it's the only eyeshadow I've been reaching for since I got it! Love!

Favorite Mascara: Too Faced 'Better Than Sex'
I've heard of this mascara for years but didnt actually buy it and try it until this month. It's safe to say, when a product is talked about and hyped as much as this mascara is, there's usually a good reason. This mascara is amazing. The thick brush makes your lashes extra long and adds a ton of volume. I don't think I'll ever go back to any other mascara. I'm so glad I finally tried this mascara. It's a new staple in my makeup bag.

Favorite Hair Product: Unite 7Seconds Leave In Conditioner
I've actually been using this product for awhile but I felt it was important enough to mention. I bought this leave in conditioner spray back in May and I use it every time I wash my hair, and I still have it! It lasts forever so even though it's around $'s well worth it. I spray this on wet hair and it gets rid of any tangles immediately. It's also really helped my hair feel stronger and softer.

Favorite Recipe: Chicken Cordon Bleu
I have never attempted to make Chicken Cordon Bleu before. Honestly, I'm not sure if I have even ever eaten it. lol But my friend Emily sent me this recipe and I gave it a try...and it was so easy and delicious. I can't really go wrong with chicken stuffed with cheese and ham.  I tried the mayo/dijon spread method instead of dredging the chicken in egg, and it worked out perfectly! Learn something new every day! haha

TV Show: This Is Us
Omgosh... I'm sure you've heard all the hype of NBC's new show This Is Us. And if you arent watching, you need to. I love this show because every episode I learn some sort of life lesson for myself, even if it's just how to be a better person. It's heartwarming and hopeful and a show I feel everyone needs to be watching to help their lives feel a little brighter.

TGIF! 2.3.17

Yay Friday!
This weekend we have a couple of things planned that I am very excited about. Saturday we are going to the LA Zoo for the first time EVER for my friend's son's 2nd birthday. And Sunday is my favorite holiday of the year...SUPERBOWL SUNDAY!! Who are you guys rooting for? I don't have a preference for either team so I'll probably root for the Falcons since they are the underdog. But I think it would be cool to see Tom Brady win his 5th Superbowl. The most any QB has ever won. Like wow-za. He's good.
And of course I am SO stoked to see Lady Gaga's halftime performance.
Have a great weekend!!
