This Week’s Friday Faves



Woohoo! So glad it’s the weekend! We have lots of stuff to do around our condo these next couple weeks so that we can get it on the market and move into our new house but I am so excited to get to work! If you know anyone looking to buy a condo in the Northwest Chicago suburbs let me know! Also if you have any recommendations on the best places to buy backplash/coutertops/kitchen islands/hardware I am in neeeed! And if you know any affordable contractors/painters/handypeople send them my way! My first priority is getting the kitchen ready as well as painting the house and then we can start moving in. Our goal is to be in by Thanksgiving so the race is on! 🙂

I am so glad that you all wanted more product reviews per your survey answers because I love sharing things I like/love/hate with you all! I will continue my ‘Friday Faves’ posts going forward and am totally open to suggestions or requests on products to try/feature. It’s the last day to enter my giveaway and give me some feedback on the things you want to see here on GWSG! So don’t forget! You can find the link, here.

Here’s what I am lovvving this week and so is Roo:IMG_8902

  1. Yogi Tea– So I’ve recently found a love for yoga which makes me sad that I didn’t know how great it would be for my back until now but never the less I am obsessed. So when I was out searching for tea the other day (I’m trying to drink more tea vs extra coffee throughout the day) I came across a brand developed by a popular yoga instructor, I had to try it. I often have a hard time sleeping through the night and this particular kind is a nighttime tea so I figured I would give it a try. It is so great! My bedtime rountine is now this tea combined with some breathing exercises and I’m sleeping peacefully through the night. I highly recommend it! And the flavor is delish; sweet and spicy and doesn’t need anything added to it.
  2. Clarins Everlasting Foundation: You guys I am OBSESSED with this foundation. I have been using it for the last couple months and it is so fab. It’s full coverage, matte, 18 hour wear and has SPF 15 in it. I’ve tried a lot of foundations and hate when they crease or wear out during the day or when the color isn’t exactly what you need so you have to layer it with a lot of other stuff. Blah. This protects your face from all the pollution and crapola in the air too which is awesomeeee! I use 109-Wheat and the color is so fab. I highly recommend it! Also Clarins has awesome skin care and has samples of everything so go try it out!
  3. Clarins Lip Perfector: OMG. You guys. I got this as a gift with purchase when I bought my last foundation and it is so fab! A co-worker of mine used to rave about it but I had never tried it and let me tell you it’s so great. There’s only a few colors and they are all really natural looking giving your lips the perfect color and shine. It also helps perfect your lips nourishing and repairing any damage. I love it and you know I am a lipstick/gloss addict. Mine is 05-Candy Shimmer.
  4. Rocksbox: This is such a great everyday set and I know I talk about it all the time but you seriously neeeed to try Rocksbox! If you struggle with accessorizing or you don’t have time to shop or you’re just a jewelry addict like me try it for a month for free and see what you think! You fill out a style survey to tell your stylist what you like and then they’ll send you out your first box! Buy from the box at a discounted rate or wear it for a month and send it back or wear it for a week and send it back and get another box! NO strings attached and it’s such a fun surprise every time! Apply code ‘mrsmadelynweaverxoxo‘ at checkout and happy accessorizing!

Let me know if you try any of these goodies and have a wonderful night! I’m off to enjoy a quiet night with the hubs and Roo and a big glass of wine! #earnedit
