Friday Faves 11.4

It's definitely been a minute since I've sat down to write a blog post - not gonna lie. The past two weeks have been absolute madness for me. The beginning of last week I had two presentations, tons of errands, then I left Wednesday afternoon to head to Oneonta for Halloween weekend/Mike's birthday. I was there until Sunday afternoon, headed home, and studied for the three midterms I had this week. So to say I've been running around non-stop is an understatement. The next few weeks aren't too busy for me until I fly home for Thanksgiving - so expect regular blog posts (at least until finals week ;-) )

I was sent this dry shampoo for free on behalf of Influenster and in all honesty, I didn't have high hopes for it. It sat in my closet with other products I get sent and I kinda just forgot about it. I love Aussie products, I use their hairspray and I've used their 3 Minute Miracle, but they're just kinda eh, not exactly life changing. But then I tried this! (I posted this on Snap too; shelbyshowell) First off - NO WHITE RESIDUE! I couldn't believe my eyes when I sprayed it and saw no chalky, powdery residue that most dry shampoos leave. I had so much texture and body in my hair after using this. I suggest using it at night, on days when you don't wash your hair, and sleeping with it in. It creates so much volume! So, so impressed.

Oh my goodness. These booties changed my life. I had black booties before, but I needed a new pair desperately because I was honestly embarrassed by how awful my old ones looked. I walked into Steve Madden, saw these, tried one shoe on, and bought them before I could put on the other one. I love the look of the pointed toe, they click when you walk (deal breaker for me), and they go with everything I wear day to day. I already know I'm going to wear these down until they fall apart because I love them so much. Highly recommend these!

I've certainly mentioned these before, but I can't get enough of them. I'm not a huge lipstick wearer day to day, simply because I hate having to touch it up and worry if it smudges. These are the easiest way to get lip color in my opinion. I just swipe it on and don't have to worry about it. My go-to colors are Stockholm and Athens.

I got this beauty at the Rebecca Minkoff sample sale a few weeks ago and haven't stopped carrying it around since. I love it because you can hold it simply in your hand or you have the option to attach the strap and use it as a crossbody. I have so many 'big' bags, I typically carry totes, so this is the perfect mini option. It also has zippers on the side that make it expand. It's so versatile.

It's been my goal for a few months now to really grow out and shape my eyebrows. I've always known that castor oil is really great for helping your brows, eyelashes, hair, and nails grow, so when I saw this in Whole Foods I had to pick it up. It's 'stickier' and thicker than coconut oil (which I use as well) but I love this because you barely need a drop to coat your lashes, nails, and eyebrows. As for the growth, I certainly see a huge difference in my brows... like they're almost too bushy and overgrown! If you're wanting to grow out your hair I suggest using this as a mask; brush it through your hair and let it sit before you jump in the shower. 

What are you loving this week?
