friday favorites

Nothing excites me more than logging on to my Feedly on Friday mornings and seeing all of the Friday Favorites posts pop up on my daily list of reads. It's the little things, am I right?

Lately, I've been into all things beauty and I think this post will reflect that. I used to write a weekly favorites list myself back when I used to blog regularly and thought it would be fun to do a new round of things I am loving lately. Shopping is such a soothing balm on the soul. Don't you agree?

The first product I would like to introduce is called an iRing and it is life changing. And even though it is called an iRing, it can be used on any smartphone or tablet and most importantly, it's re-usable. Just run water over the side that sticks onto your phone or tablet, wipe off the excess water and re-stick! It's awesomesauce. I've had it on my phone for about 2-3 weeks and it is really useful when I don't want to take a bag but can't leave my phone. It's like I have two hands again. Ha.

ETA: I've had this on my phone for about 4-5 weeks now and it was a lifesaver when we attended Monster Jam at Nissan Stadium. Will post more on that later.

I discovered the brand Doll 10 when one of the hosts of QVC raved about their lip products on a random day I was channel surfing. Ever since that day I am now the proud owner of 5 of their lip products. My first purchase was their nude lip wardrobe which includes a lipstick and lip gloss in one. It was absolutely an impulse buy but when I received these in the mail, I immediately fell in love with the colors and consistency of the product. They are dabombdotcom. This is the reason I felt confident in getting the lip velvet trio. The lip velvet trio by Doll 10 is incredible. i've tried all three colors (material girl, couture able and fashionista) and I love every single one. It's moisturizing and pigmented and goes on like a lip gloss but looks matte on the lips. In fact, don't usually use a lip pencil when wearing them. LOVE.

The next thing on my list that is also a beauty product are the tarte look sharp eyeliners that come in the colors charcoal, brown and blue black. They're self-sharpening and glide on so easily. In fact, these are so easy to put on that my usual attempt to do a cat eye actually ends up looking good. Score! The colors are really cool too.

I work in the music industry and I'm not ashamed to say that I have at least 3 over the ear headphones that I've bought in the past 3-4 years. These black headphones are my current go to at the moment because they are so handy. I got these urbanears wireless headphones via a Spotify coupon last Christmas and they are perfect for dancing! Ok, they're great headphones either way but because they're wire free they are perfect for working out. The sound is also really nice. I believe they have newer and more expensive versions out now but these are my favorite to use.

If you ask my husband, my family, friends or co-workers, they will be the first to tell you that I am a bonafide Starbucks addict. Now, I've followed Starbucks on Instagram since I first joined back in 2011 and recently they've been promoting a new vanilla sweet cream cold brew. I decided to give it a try last week and I chose to add extra cream, because, yes - that's how I roll and oh my gosh. Amaze. Balls. LOVE squared.

And last but definitely not least, let's talk about Snapchat. I've been on Snapchat since 2013 and I remember trying to get everyone and their mother to join. Even way back when during the time it got bad press. It's kinda cool to see it exploding like it is. So here is a 10 second snap of myself that I uploaded to youtube just because. Oh and if you are so inclined, my snapchat name is deeliciouz. I'm loving all of the face filters and am admittedly kind of boring so consider yourself warned. Heh.

And thus concludes my first friday favorites of 2016.
