Five-Faves-Friday Vol 6

Well, no exciting news to report about this week...didn't really do much except plan our 1 year wedding anniversary trip for next month and we decided on Las Vegas.  We have family there and try to visit Vegas at least 2x a year. It's one of my favorite places to visit because I know it so well AND well, IT'S VEGAS!!!! So during my week of planning these are 5 of my favorite things of the week!

Double Stuff Oreo's

 I have always been obsessed with Oreo's since I was a wee one.  Efren & I used to always keep these stocked in our pantry but over the past year and a half we have really been trying to watch what we eat.  We haven't purchased a bag of these babies in over a year!!! I made a huuuge mistake by going to get "just a few things" from the grocery store...on an empty stomach I will add...and left with these.  Now, I probably could of just walked right past the cookies and been fine, but no, not this time. They had an Oreo monument right smack in the middle of Wal-Mart! It's Oreo's 100th birthday, I mean, it would just be mean to the Oreo to NOT buy any.  So we spent this week celebrating Oreo's birthday by stuffing our face with these magical sandwich cookies.

 So I am a huge Pinterest addict and I love pinning different foods to make from there.  From that fabulous site I discovered Plain Chicken! Since I'm a picky eater and pretty much only eat chicken this perfect for me! I've probably made at least 30 meals from this site! I absolutely love it! It's not just all chicken, there's other recipes too.  This week I made French Dip Roll-Ups, Bubble Up Enchiladas, & Chicken Pot Pie Casserole....mmmmm! Are you hungry yet?

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Shine in 30 - Shimmering Pink

I've always been a fan of YSL's makeup; the packaging is to die for, it's so classy and elegant & always makes me feel glamourous! When I first got this lipstick, I was so disappointed with it! I was expecting a nice bright pigmented pink with lots of shine.  I probably should of read about the Pur Shine's before...these aren't as pigmented as normal lipsticks but have a gorgeous sheen to them.  This week I have been loving this! It's a very frosty shimmery baby pink that has been perfect for the looks I have been achieving.  I was able to turn my YSL frown upside down :)

Organix Repairing Awapuhi Ginger Dry Styling Oil

I recently did a haul about drug store products on my YT Channel  and in this video I talked about me just starting to get into some drug store items.  I've never really shopped for beauty products at Wal-Mart or Walgreens but everyone has such great things to say about certain products.  During my Walgreens shopping trip I came across the brand Organix, I've never heard of it before but they were all BOGO free! I picked this as well as a Coconut Milk oil thingy (still haven't tried that one).  I have thin hair so I've been loving how this doesn't weigh it down or make it greasy. Oh, and the smell is amazzzzzzzzzzing! 

Coastal Scents Liquid Corrector in White

It's that time of year where I'm starting to tan (fake bake) and need to "up" my shade in foundation.  Well, I'm still too light for my next shade up and the one I'm using it too light for me. Solution: use this liquid corrector in the darker color! Tada! Perfect color! I have one of these in my professional kit as well! I love it! It doesn't alter the foundation formula or anything, just lightens it perfectly. 

Well, friends, there ya have it! My 6th Five-Faves-Friday post! Wow! 

I hope you all have a beautiful weekend!

Until next time,
