Weekend + Links


Happy Friday from New York City! I flew into the city this morning and am meeting up with my parents and brother for two days of playing before our trade show kicks off on Sunday. This is one of my favorite work trips each year. You can’t beat NY in the fall, and especially just as it starts putting up some of its holiday decor. We found a great, true 3 bedroom in Chelsea and love going the VRBO/AirB&B route. Hotel rooms in the city are so small! Since the majority of this week has been filled with election craziness, I’m looking forward to a fun filled weekend away!

HOORAY for the Sephora VIB sale! Now is the best time to try those beauty favorites you’ve been eyeing. If you haven’t tried anything from It Cosmetics I highly recommend! I swear by this cc cream, this powder for touch ups and this cleansing balm to take it all off.  There are tons of imitations for this blender, but none beat the original. I use this every day and it’s held up for over a year.

Other favorites include: the best dry shampoo, the toner I continue to re-purchase, my go-to mascara and lip pencils that won’t dry you out.
