Friday Five!

Today’s Friday Five is going to be all about my favorite makeup!

  1.  Radiant Defense by Rodan & Fields (I’m in shade “sand”).  Get glowing, and quickly with this skin perfecter.  Yes, that’s what it’s technically called.  It’s a dermacosmetic, which means it smooths and perfects the skin, helps with fine lines and wrinkles and gives it a healthy glow that lasts all day.
  2. MAC eyeliners.  I’ve used MAC on my eyes since I was 18 years old.  Their eyeliners are like butter.  I tend to use the Tecknakohl liners the most.  Softer than the regular kohl pencil, but still long lasting.  My favorite color is “Photogravure”, which is a black/dark brown combo.
  3. Tarte eye palettes.  As I mentioned before, I was a MAC devotee for all things eyes.  Unnnnntil I fell madly in love with Tarte eye shadows.  They glide on so smooth and last for hours and hours.  I still use MAC eye shadows (never quit a legend..duh), but my Tarte palettes go with me everywhere as well.  My favorite palettes are the Pro to Go palette, and the #RemixNatural Color Collection palette.
  4. Tarte Shape Tape.  If you don’t use, or haven’t heard of this, you are from another planet.  So I feel like I don’t even have to explain it, but let’s just say if you ever need a concealer, this should be your ONLY go-to.  I’ve used like 50 million brands over the years and this one can’t be beat!  I wear shade “light-medium”.
  5. And finally, my last favorite, Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara in “blackest black”.  I was a Benefit and Too Faced mascara devotee, through and through, until I found this a few months ago.  This has perfect coverage, doesn’t clump, it curls and lengthens and is under 9.00.  #winning.

Friday Five!

Happy Friday, loves!!

Today I’m sharing my five favorite apps I can’t be without!

1. Instagram

I mean…did it happen if you didn’t document it on the ‘gram? I’ve always been more of an IG girl than FB. Sorry FB, but all the forwarded jokes and messages are just clutter to me. I use FB to connect and stay in touch with friends and family, of course, but I prefer the look and ease of Instagram. Plus, pictures. Lots of pictures.

2. Target Cartwheel

Do you guys have this downloaded? I’m assuming all of my readers are Target shoppers, since we are friends, right? I’ve had this app since it first became available. Now they also have Target Circle, which is connected to your Target account just like Cartwheel! All I know is when I check out via store or online checkout, I ALWAYS have a credit to apply to my total, along with my Cartwheel offers. Target just keeps getting better!

3. MyFitnessPal

I’m a tad obsessed with numbers. I mean, just a tad. By a tad, I mean a lot! I wear a FitBit 24-7. (Santa, please bring me an Apple Watch for Christmas so I can jump into the 21st century with the rest of the world, mmmmk). My FitBit is connected to MyFitnessPal, so all my workouts and steps transfer over from FitBit to MFP so I can see how many calories I can consume without turning into a double wide. I log all my calories. I know some people feel negatively about logging calories but it helps me see what I’m working with. MFP keeps me enlightened on what my macros are all day long so I know when to add more protein or cut back on fats. It’s very helpful!

4. Calm

How many of you struggle with just finding 5 minutes in the day to take a freaking breath? Last summer I downloaded this app to help with my anxiety. Little did I know that I would be unlocking this GINORMOUS portable resource of so much goodness! I actually love it so much that I pay the 60.00 per year for the full version. Don’t worry though, the free version has access to a ton of meditations, breathing exercises, music and even sleep stories. My anxiety was so major that I wanted the in depth meditation series’s. Now that my anxiety is semi under control, I use this app on road trips when get anxious or if I ever feel a feeling of panic start to come on. It’s pretty amazing!

5. Chick Fil-A One App/Starbucks

Like how I combined these two? I cheated since I technically have 6 apps here, but these are the two restaurant apps that I feel offer the best rewards and give back the most to their customers! Also, these are really the only places I go if I’m eating out haha. My favorite days are when I can get a free coffee and free medium fruit salad at Starbucks and Chick Fil-A, respectively. 😊. These apps are definitely worth the download!! You may actually be losing money if you don’t have them.

Alright guys! That’s all I have for today!!! What are your favorite apps and should I download them??

Have a great weekend!!!!
