Happy Friday! To celebrate, here are photographs documenting our favorite things from this past week. Enjoy
1. My husband and I love the colors in this New Yorker
cover and the illustration, which reminds us of us. So, we decided to frame it and hang in our bedroom. Never underestimate the potential of a magazine cover.
2. Monday morning…downtown Chicago…what a city.
3. May Books Day Planner: it keeps life organized behind the absolute cutest cover.
4. Living in a house with two son’s, baby blue has become a theme color. This baby blue Kate Spade satchel is the ideal spring accessory.
5. We love the new Victoria’s Secret PINK Racerback Bralette. It comes in popping hues with super cute lace detailing and will look cute under tanks this summer.
What are some of your favorite things from the week?
Finding “natural” deodorants that actually work can be quite the challenge. Here at The Beauty Girl, we’re all for being conscious of harsh chemicals and parabens in anti-perspirants, but not when it leaves us smelling like a gym sock at the end of the day. In the past we’ve shared other natural deodorant options
with you, and recently we’ve discovered another to add to your list. Read More
I’ve been hunkered down the past 3 weeks as we’ve welcomed our second son Jasper (Jaz) into our family. 20-month-old Rex is a proud big brother and everyone is doing great.
When it comes to beauty products, chocolate is not a new ingredient, but the Body Shop’s Chocomania Body Scrub ($14.25) really stands out as a favorite amongst all the other cocoa-scented products on the market. This scrub
is an exfoliant made to slough away dead skin and leave behind a thin protective layer of moisture. Read More
Regardless of whether you’re looking for a soft pink flush or a more smoldering coral, summer’s hottest blushes are available in a wide assortment of hues. More importantly, these blushes have all kinds of added benefits your skin will be pleased to receive, from Amazonian clay enriched formulas to self-balancing shades. Here are three of the season’s freshest rouges for your cheeks. Read More
For some time now, we’ve been testing out several different hand creams
and here is another effective and affordable option we have to share. I used Curel’s Hand & Cuticle Therapy ($4.49) for three weeks and was really impressed with how well this lotion improved the look and texture of my hands. Containing Vitamin E, Soy Milk, and Monoi Oil, this cream not helps heal your skin, but simultaneously strengthens your nails. With one application in the morning, even after washing my hands, my skin remained moisturized and non-greasy. I was completely sold after seeing the visible change in my previously weak nails, which were prone to breaking. After just five days, my nails stopped splitting and the tops of my hands were no longer dry and itchy. It’s too bad I didn’t get my hands on this earlier in the winter season (literally!), but I’m thankful I have this in my arsenal for next year.
