Friday Faves 1.27

Happy Friday! I have a ton of items to share yet again in this week's post. 


I started keeping a Moleskine journal back in March and I find it so therapeutic. Sure, it adds to my overall aesthetic when I'm writing in it at my favorite coffee shop, but I really love writing things down. Anything from blog ideas, quotes, doodles, lyrics, a memory, anything. I find it lets me dump out my thoughts on paper in a creative way. I keep other journals for business/school things, like this 'Making Things Happen' one from Marshall's (they have tons of cute ones for $3-$7!). And this marble one!? Strictly used for decor because I think it's so cute! 😅

I got this gem at the RM sample sale a few months back. I forgot about it for a while to be honest, then I finally pulled it out of the dust bag before I went home for winter break and since then I can't stop using it. I love how it's neutral but still makes a statement. I also love how it still surprisingly fits a ton despite it's size.

I feel like my 7th grade skater/angsty phase self would absolutely love these. To be honest I got these because I saw a lot of bloggers sporting them, and I see them all the time on the streets of the city. No, I don't plan on buying a skateboard but I love the vibe these give an outfit. I especially love how these look with some 501 jeans and a tee.

My hair has been so fun to style lately. I really love the length of it and for some reason I've been really into styling it (usually I'd throw it up in a bun and be done with it). I started to use this oil serum I found in my room at home once I came here for break and I've been using this a ton. I use it on dry and wet hair - dry when it looks kind of dull or straw like, and when it's wet I use it to smooth it out. I don't see any dramatic change in my hair but this is lightweight and doesn't make my feel oily, so I'm a fan. As for Triple Sec, I love when my hair looks messy or 'dirty', like I just rolled out of bed, and this product makes that achievable. It gives it texture, volume, and smells amazing.

YOU GUYS. I've always preached about using beauty products for multiple uses, but I never really followed through with that for myself. Until now!!! I was watching makeup tutorials on YouTube and saw a guru use this as her blush. But this color caught my attention due to the fact it's what I use as eyeshadow and lip stick. It's the Bite multistick, which is meant to be used as blush, shadow, or lipstick. It has a cream texture when you first apply it, then it 'dries' matte/powder like. It isn't drying on your lips either, it feels like nothing is there. I'm a huge fan of this on my eyes simply because it takes 2 seconds to apply and blend out with my finger.

This product isn't completely out of this world, but I wanted to give it an honorable mention. I usually just use my makeup wipes to get my eye makeup off. But lately, I feel like I'm constantly rubbing and tugging at my eyes with them, which is a huge no-no (causes wrinkles!). I saw this travel size of the Garnier Micellar Water in Target and figured it was worth a shot. I like it because it gets everything off, without having to scrub and irritate my eye. I just douse a cotton ball with it and wipe it over my eye. It's also not greasy or irritating and leaves no residue - it doesn't even feel like I used it when I'm done!

What're you loving this week?
