Happy Friday!
This Friday I thought I'd share with you my favorite essentials I'm happy to use every day! Ringing in the new year made me realize I was running low on a few of my staple items that make me "Me". I felt like I was getting ready to hibernate when I was stocking up on them. Some items last longer than others - Urban decay primer lasts forever - but then some like the Neutrogena make-up remover wipes don't last long at all. I threw in my favorite pair of earrings too which have popped up a few times in my pics. I actually bought 2 pairs in case I lost one of them! =) Oh and that lil heart Mr. & Mrs. dish is where I put my wedding ring everyday - no excuses. I vowed never to put it anywhere but there so it does not get lost or go down the drain. It was a lil trinket I received at my bridal shower that was just perfect!

The last item I've been using all week but the cold weather is just keeping my dry skin...well, dry. Eczema runs in my family and I do have patches of red blotchy dry skin so finding true moisturizers to last through the winter is hard for me. It's not bad enough to take antibiotics but it's pesky and some fragrant creams irritate it further. Udderly Smooth feels wonderful when I put it on but I think I still need something stronger! The relief is too brief. Luckily there are a million beauty bloggers so I'm sure I'll find a good alternative.

This week breezed by and I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend waiting for a few new things to finally come out!

  4. I definitely love those makeup remover wipes - some of my favorites!! I have a similar ring dish and love it!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. Alright, I'm siding with the other ladies, too. That ring dish is so cute - I really should start taking my rings off more but it's a pain in the arse. Thankfully I do when I lift weights and shoot my gun, but I should take them off every night and when I do dishes too....
    My skin is RIDIC dry from the deep freeze were experiencing in Ontario....
    That bracelet is cute too, I'm excited because we're getting an Alex and Ani store near where I live. I think it's the first of two in Canada/Ontario. They're so pretty!
    Have a great weekend Hun xo

  6. I can't wait to see Pride + Prejudice + Zombies!

  7. That ring dish is really cute! I never take my rings off but I'm sure if I had a cute dish like that I'd be more likely too! :)

    Great everyday essentials. Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  10. Love the neutrogena wipes! They are the best on the market.

  11. that ring dish is so cute. and i am not sure what i have but i had eczema like symptoms growing up but then disappeared. but i would get random itchiness and redness at different points in my life and then it would disappear again. but every winter is brutal for my hands. my skin cracks and splits open, especially right near my nails on my finger tips - at one point i had band aids on all my fingers because i literally had cuts on them. i tried everything and nothing really worked but i did start using o'keeffe's working hands that i found at CVS. it feels terrible when i apply it ... like the feeling after you peel an orange. ugh. but i think it works. it healed the cracks and prevents new cracks. i apply it before i go to sleep every night. during the day i just use regular hand lotion although i feel like i am always washing my hands (especially when i'm taking care of guest dogs). i just can't wait for all the dryness to go away! eeck!
