beauty, friday favorites

Friday Favorites

Favorite Song: I find myself singing along to this song when it comes on. Bright by Echosmith.

Favorite Beauty Product:  I received two new Cover Girl products from Influenster that I am in love with!

The mascara is called The Super Sizer, and super sized indeed!!! If you look at the wand below, it is very detailed and smaller than your normal mascara wand. My lashes are short and thin. I usually have to be really careful with mascaras because they tend to clump easily on me. Not this one! I love how build-able this one is! If I want a simple day look, I can just swipe twice on each eye and have decent looking lashes. If I really want the wow factor, I can just swipe a few more coats and it looks like I am wear fake eye lashes.

My favorite thing about it? It comes off easily with my Neutrogena eye makeup remover. Something I am finding harder to do these days with most mascaras for whatever reason.


The eyeliner made me a little nervous because it is liquid. When I opened the packaging though, I realized that you can use it on it’s side for a thinner, more precise line…or you can use it flat for a thicker, more dramatic look. I have played both ways and the results are awesome! I am no longer afraid of liquid liner.

I really liked this formula because it stays black, not some weird color when color when it dries. It is super precise and it did not run or smudge all day.


Favorite Moments: I did a lot more than I usually do during the week! We hosted a food drive Wednesday night and got to hang out with some awesome people at World of Beer. Yesterday for lunch I met up with my usual Friday group (minus Courtney, whom we missed!) to try PT’s of Soho, which did not disappoint. Then last night we had a girls night at Saw’s Juke Joint.

The space at PT’s of Soho was fun. They had arcade games in the back and a great patio area outside. I ordered a salad with a cup of chili. The other’s at my table split fried green tomatoes. I am not a fan of fried green tomatoes, but they looked pretty so I had to snap a picture at least!

Favorite Snack: I am loving the Yoplait Greek Whips Vanilla Cupcake. Yes, you read that correctly….Vanilla Cupcake!!!! The texture of the whips is my favorite and the flavor….oh the flavor!!!!

Favorite Funnies:

This is the kind of yoga I can totally get down with!

How I am probably going to look Monday when I get back to running…

How you respond at the ridiculousness of some people…

How I felt at the beginning of the week

Linking up with Amanda! Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommy’s and mommy-to-be’s! Have a great weekend!

    I feel like that dog all day every day. 🙂 Those fried green tomatoes look yummy – we’ll have to have a lunch date there one day. Juke Joints was so fun, but I’m 1000% sure I’m still full from all the food.

    I love those whips with strawberries, it is the perfect dessert! I don’t like fried green tomatoes either, but those look awesome!

    Happy Friday! That mascara sounds fantastic. I have the same trouble with my lashes – short and thin! Gotta love Cover Girl, always a reliable brand. And I totally just sent that first dog meme to my husband – sadly that one rang way too true for me and my pillows, lol! Hope you have a great weekend! xoxo

    I’ve never had fried green tomatoes but I practically drooled all over my keyboard when I saw that picture so… maybe I should give them a try! Hah. Have a great weekend!

    I’m very curious about that mascara now, I will keep it in mind for when I run out! I love Echosmith 🙂 Enjoy your weekend!

    Mae often lays splayed out like that last pug.

    The brush on that mascara looks like the a little like the L’Oreal butterfly I just got. I might pick up the Cover Girl too and try them in conjunction.

    Happy weekend!

    All that food looks delish! Except the Yoplait 100, all I taste in their yogurts is the sucralose even that vanilla cupcake. I was so sad because I wanted to love it *womp womp*.

    That super sized mascara sounds fabulous, I’m a mascara hoarder and may need to add this to my collection 😀

    Happy Friday gurlie <3

    I am going to try that eyeliner. It looks easy to use.

    I think i need to try that mascara, mine are close to expiration so good timing. I think that would be me too if I tried to run right now. Pug life for sure!
