Friday Favorites no. 7

May 15, 2021

Another Friday down, 5 more Friday's to go before I am officially on summer break. And I am watching the clock like crazy. I need a break. I don't even have big plans either. Just relaxing, taking my daughter to the waterpark and skatepark. A little bit of shopping and a lot of cleaning and organizing. Plus I have so much content I will be posting that I am a little overwhelmed by it all.

Speaking of a lot of content and being overwhelmed, I recently collaborated with some companies. I have some packages I am waiting for to post about. So please stay tuned for what's to come in the next coming month!

Now, onto the Friday Faves! This one is going to be loaded with some goodies!!

First, lets talk about Glossier. I am LITERALLY obsessed with this company. They are about to release the Ultralip. I entered their giveaway where they are giving away all 9 colors they are releasing plus their makeup bag. Even though I already have the bag, I can gift it to my co-worker that loves skincare and makeup just as much as I do. Anyways - I got their sweater! And I can't take it off. I love it so much I bought 2! A small and a medium. The small is for winter when I don't have to wear a shirt underneath and the medium is for days when I need more room and comfort. Sometimes an over-sized sweater is what you need for hiding your swollen belly. And no - not a pregnant belly. Either I ate too much or it's that time of the month.

You need this sweater. I wear it everywhere I go. I even wore it yesterday at work with a pair of leggings because I just didn't feel like dressing up. I have this one student that loves Glossier as much as me and when she sees me wearing it she always smiles and gives me a thumbs up. Plus it's funny to hear the ladies call me Miss Glossier. HA!

So... yah.. like I said. Completely and utterly obsessed. I want everything they have. And I mean EVERYTHING. And what makes me love them so much? They posted my TikTok video on their TikTok platform for Mother's Day. It was the best Mother's Day I could ever have.

*whispers* It's not too late to get a Glossier gift card for mom 👀 🎥: @itsthatglow

I could not believe it. I wanted to cry tears of joy. With the month I have been having, getting that notification was the cherry on the top. With sprinkles galore. I could not stop smiling.

For Mother's Day, my husband and daughter dropped me off at the doorstep at Ulta. He said have fun and drove off to park and go into a sports store. Leaving me all alone to browse beauty and skincare products in silence. I looked and looked and really didn't find anything I needed. Because I already have so much skincare. Plus, before I buy skincare products I like to research it first. I don't ever buy products on a whim. I have learned that. But I have been wanting the scalp and body scrub and wave spray by OUAI. Let me tell you... this stuff is amazing. I have a dry, flaky scalp due to my Eczema. So this helps a whole lot when I am noticing buildup. The wave spray helps my waves stay in place. What I do is braid my hair at night damp and in the morning I spray all over. It actually works. I can't wait for my wave maker hair tool. My waves will be on point!

Every few months (or more) I like to purge my closet on what I am no longer wearing and take it to Plato's Closet and get a little extra spending cash. Sure you don't get back what you are hoping for but at least it's something. When I dropped off my stuff, I turned and saw it... the Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Mask. I scored it for half the price! Let me tell you this. You need to buy this stuff. I will be purchasing more. Especially because my husband is using it too. My wrinkles are clearing up FASTER and no lie, any breakouts I was having, the next morning they were pretty much GONE! I want their whole product line. I read so many good things about Glow Recipe.

I have recently teamed up with Bubble. What is Bubble you ask? It's skincare made especially for teens and youth skin. Ever since I started my skincare obsession, my daughter has decided to jump on board with mom and dad. And I was so happy too! At first she was using our products but I believe my stuff was way too harsh on her skin. Until I found Bubble skincare. I reached out to them and now I am a Bubble Ambassador. So I get some pretty awesome perks and my daughter gets all the skincare she wants. She got this cute sample set and she fell head over heals in love with it.

She loves this stuff. It's so gentle on her skin and doesn't cause any irritations or breakouts. It's perfect for a 10 year old. We all know of the changes for girls at that age. And little does she know, she has a HUGE haul coming for her birthday. As a matter of fact... one of them will be delivered TODAY! Now if only I can get it in the house without her noticing the cute blue box.

If you are interested in purchasing some Bubble skincare, feel free to use my code itsthatglow for 10% off your ENTIRE purchase. Shipping is always free when you purchase $39+ (domestic shipping). It's fairly priced too! The packaging is so adorable. It's kinda "kid-like".

  5. Glossier is the best skincare and makeup I have ever used. Their customer service is AMAZING! I’ve had 2 mishaps and I emailed them and they sent me replacements no questions asked and told me to keep what they sent me.

  6. That Ouai wave spray sounds amazing! So does the scrub!

  7. It actually works!!! The spray that is. I have really oily hair so this scrub has really helped a lot with the oil. Big difference I tell ya!!
