Finally Friday!

Happy Friday! After the day I had yesterday, which got better and then worse, I couldn't be more excited for today! We leave to one of my favorite little Texas towns tonight for a 7 on 7 football tournament and we're going to make a mini vacation out of it while we're there. Bring on all the German food! :)

ONE //  On the beauty front, I went to Sephora the other day in search for a new makeup for oily skin. She gave me a ton to sample as well as some primers and this nifty little Blotterazzi by BeautyBlender. I love it! Unlike blotting paper it doesn't smudge my makeup and it's actually perfect to do touch ups. You clean it like you normally would a beautyblender so it will last longer than blotting paper. Oily skin? You totally need this!

TWO //  I've expressed my love for the Rodan + Fields Unblemish line before on here. My all over acne cleared up and I don't get the strange breakout all over my face anymore, but, it didn't help with the hormonal jawline acne or the oiliness. The acne definitely wasn't terrible but it's still something that I've always been insecure about and I feel like the oil control moisturizer didn't help with my oiliness at all! So, when I was at Sephora (see #1) I asked about a spot treatment for my jawline. She showed me the Kate Somerville EradiKate (that I've seen on so many blogs and videos) and I just knew I had to try it. One week in and I love it! I wish I had a before and after picture because this stuff is amazing! It has sulfur in it so It doesn't smell great and it does burn a little when you put it on but quickly goes away! And don't worry, it dries clear so you can put it on before makeup! And, in the package I got a sample of her Oil Free Moisturizer and I've already purchased it. Oil control under control -for the most part... if not I use my blotterazzi! haha. 

THREE //  Two of my absolute favorite actresses are Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis - put them together and it's always hilarious! Have you seen the trailer for Bad Moms? I've probably watched this 10 times and cannot wait to see the movie! It's going to be so funny!

FOUR //  Throughout the week I've done a lot of cleaning and organizing and it feels so good to finally get that done! Brylee's room and closet were a priority and I knocked those out over the weekend while she was napping one afternoon. I moved a shelf that was in the entry way to her closet so I could put her books and puzzles out and in her reach rather than in the guest room and top of the closet. She loves it! Last minute I decided to do the hall closet and I'm embarrassed of the before pictures! I cannot believe I let that closet look like that!

FIVE //  Brylee absolutely loves puzzles! She got this United States puzzle for Christmas and is just now having an interest in it - we put it together every single night and she loves learning about the states. It's a favorite of mine that she loves learning so much!  As she puts each state down she says it's name (or tries to) and we talk about it's capital and any other info that I may know about it. If I'm being honest, it's been a nice geography refresher for me! I've been trying to teach her the Nifty Fifty song (please tell me y'all know what I'm talking about) but we aren't quite ready for that yet.

That's all I have for you today! I hope y'all have the best Friday and a great weekend!
