Ok, so this is going to be a new series on the blog called Friday Faves where I share a few things that I’m really digging!
This week, I’m so in love with this Besame lipstick my friend Katelynn ordered for me! I had never heard of the company (which really surprised me actually!) and I am so glad she introduced me. Katelynn’s lipstick game is so strong, so she’s to be trusted on these topics.
Here’s the gist-
“Through a keen eye for color and historical expertise, [they] recreate modern reproductions of classic luxury makeup from the 1920s, ‘30s, ‘40s, and ‘50s, designed to make women feel elegant, inspired, and empowered by their beauty. Pairing innovative, cutting edge technology with a historical milieu, [their] colors and formulations are painstakingly hand-crafted to a minutia of detail, from [their] custom-designed gold compacts to our signature chrysanthemum motifs.”
I ordered the American Beauty (1945) lipstick and it’s the most wonderful blue based red. The next two on my wishlist are Red Velvet (1946) and Cherry Red (1935) in the lipstick department, but also their black cake mascara (1920’s) and brush set, their porcelain cashmere powder compact and their french vanilla brightening powder.
My next two faves have to do with food! Last night was my last chance to hang out with the aforementioned Katelynn before she moves to Scotland to pursue her doctorate. We hit up Sephora, naturally, and then hit a few local places in Medina (our home town, kinda). One was Chill, an AMAZING ice cream place I had never been to before. It was so, so good. They had so many interesting, unique flavors and it’s all made right there, in house. Definitely check them out! I got the caramel apple and then nuts for nutter butter- so good, the the nutter butter one was super creamy and delish.
We also hit up this (new to me, too) pizza place, Courthouse Pizzeria, a few store fronts down because it smelled so good and I was starving! For $13 we both got slices of pizza and drinks! The slices were HUGE and the .75 up charge for a topping was #worthit… look how much they put on there!
So excited that little ol’ Medina is getting these great places! Jess and I will have to do a date night out there soon.
One last fave for this Friday…
These awesome watches from buttercream Luxe Craft line at Jo Annn Fabric’s. I love all of their stuff, but was immediately smitten with these watches. I’ve been wanting a watch for awhile, but never found any I loved right away. I got the floral print one with a 60% off coupon, and then a few days later they went on 50% off sale so I went back and got the gold glitter. It’s going to be perfect to wear with my fall wardrobe.
These would make great gifts this holiday season, and at $15 on sale, that’s quite a deal.
Thanks for letting me share a few of my faves!
