What I'm Loving Recently (2nd edition)

I loved sharing with you all some products whether clothes or beauty products that I am swooning over recently. Last week with the positive response I received I decided to do this type of post again and I also realized that many many of you own those Target wedges and I only recently learned about them (how is that possible). 
A bit of a disappointment with the Neutrogena facial wash I posted, I receive a sample in my Target spring beauty bag. However, with my sample running out, I need to buy the regular size. Since I received it from Target, I figured it would be on the shelves at my local Target. I am wrong! Where do I buy this awesome face wash? Neutrogena, where can I buy your local brightening facial wash?
Ok here is the next line-up of what I am loving lately.
Favorite Things #2

1/2/3/4/5

1. Ok I broke down and bought my first solid-colored maxi recently. It was a great Memorial Day price over at Macy's and I love it. Like really love it, the fabric is soft, I am not pulling up on the tube part all day long and it fits like a glove. You can also purchase the dress in red. 2. Aveeno moisturizing bar has changed my face forever. I was using Pro-activ and then it stopped working and additionally Pro-activ was drying my face out like the Sahara desert. Dried out skin is stressed out skin and more prone to break-outs. Once I changed to this moisturizing bar soap, I have never used any other product. My skin is not red anymore because it isn't dried out. Try it! 3. Hot Tools Curling Iron, best curling iron I have ever used. The curl keeps during the day and the iron heats up really quickly and the barrel doesn't snag my hair. 4. Organix Moroccan argan oil is helping to bring life back to my fried out ends, not cute. The ends of my hair look and feel full. 5. Fresh Sugar lip treatment SPF 15. I received this little puppy from Sephora back in January when it was my birthday, it was their birthday giveaway. My lips are smooth, there is no icky after taste, and SPF helps keep my lips from burning during the summer months. 

Alright ladies those are my picks for you of what I am loving recently. If you have tried any of these products or own that dress, share your experience with them. If you haven't, maybe I have enticed you enough to try them yourself.

Next week, Sean will be off visiting relatives in the East Coast starting out in Charlotte, NC. Do I wonder if I might run into Emily, the bachelorette? You betcha! Plus we are heading to Washington, DC so I can see my Boss's DC office before we officially close at the end of the year :-(
 I have an awesome group of guest bloggers lined up for you. These are some of my personal favorite bloggers, please be kind and give them lots of comment love and follow their awesome blogs if you aren't already.

A tube style maxi that doesn't have to be pulled on all day? Sign me up! I will need to try the aveeno bar... I am using acnefree and it is also extremely drying, but I finally don't have acne :)

You should totally try Acure Organic's Argan Stem Cell shampoo/conditioner - completely natural and blows organix away!!! You can get it at Whole Foods! Love all your picks. Maxi's are my fav!! Have a great weekend <3

Makaila said...

oh my, I think I need a solid maxi too! I'm glad to hear that you love it.. personally, I think you can do so many fun things with accessories with a solid rather than stripes, florals, and other prints. I'm gonna have to hit Macy's this weekend! :)

Carly said...

Um, we are so on the same 'brain wave' right now.....

1) I FINALLY bought a maxi dress (I know, I know) and I LOVE IT.
2) Aveeno is my FAV. They have a great tinted SPF moisturizer that I use alllll the time.
3) Hot tools are THE best.
4) I've been wanting to try this argan oil but I've been putting it off....IDK why I've just looked and never purchased. I'm going to have to now.
5) It's my bday month so I'm going to get this lip treatment gift from Sephora this weekend ;)

Okay, longest comment of all time! Have a great weekend :)
