oh hello, welcome back for this week’s friday five!
so without further adieu, here is this week’s friday five:
fave clothing buy
mine arrived (after i impatiently chose overnight shipping) last friday and i’m not going to lie to you, i wore it friday night, saturday and monday. #cantstopwontstop
it is SO cute! perfect for a date night (as shown above), works great with a simple tank and jeans for the weekend and then flip it over to a cardi with your fave graphic tee and you’re set for an MLK Skating Party for your kids school – or at least thats how it worked out for me!
its SO soft – like totally reminds me of a free people top! the quality is amazing and people are loving it SO much that its already sold out in size Small and 2X! for reference: i’m usually an XS in Loft and I got an XS in this top and the sizing is perfect!
so check out this quick youtube video to see how it goes from a poncho to a cardi in one quick move! how is that for versatility?!!
you’re gonna want to grab this one quick gals!
fave beauty buy
i’ve shared before my skincare issues and how adult acne has gotten ahold of my once zit-free face – you can read about my skincare routine here. so i’ve started up a much-needed regimen of unblemish again to clear up this mess!
something i love to use in addition to unblemish is my clairsonic.
my sister used to make fun of me bc i told this lady in blue mercury one day that “it changed my life” – yes, those words verbatim. also, said lady was a customer there, not an employee of the store and my lovely sis was like, “what the heck are you doing, whacko?!!!” well, that’s how passionate i am about my clairsonic!
there are many models to choose from and even a quiz to help you decide, but i swear by this thing! it helps to get all that crap out of your skin, it gets any makeup cleaned up that your quick wash or makeup remover wipe may have missed. i love using this cleanser with it at night too. (unblemish tends to dry me out a little if i use it morning and night so i just stick to it in the am)
i grabbed this book last year, actually i preordered it, but i went about three chapters in and then life distracted me. so now that i’m moving on to my third book of my 2018 reading resolution, now was as good of time as ever to dive back in from the beginning.
(as seen on my instagram story)
uninvited is about living loved when you feel less than, left out or lonely. i don’t think there is one of us who can honestly say we haven’t felt at least one of those at one time in our life or another. so if you’re looking for a pick me up, this one is a must-read and you for sure won’t be putting it down!
we’ve been inundated with snow and cold temps lately so i’ve been constantly reaching for our crockpot and comfort foods. i collect so many recipes over on pinterest so this one was up next in my board. it does not disappoint!
the beef is so tender, the flavors amazing and its filling enough for the whole family, even one filled with insatiable tween boys. i was unsure about parsnips and turnips but i could barely tell the difference between them and the potatoes – and neither could the kids! i added some cornbread on the side and it was the perfect winter’s night meal!
i know i mentioned this in last week’s fave deal, but its gotten even sweeter now!
sign up for $199, get $450 in your choice of jewels and when you sell $1,000 in your first 30 days, you get your $199 back in cash + commissions and additional product credit!
its seriously a #nobrainer!
18 months ago, I signed up for a discount and I ended up getting:
* Over 300 new customers AKA friends!
* Thousands of Stella Sisters ❤️
* A team of fabulous stylists to coach and mentor
* Sales experience and training that I never had before or even thought was something I could possibly do!
* Trips to the NYC Design Studio and Las Vegas
* Thousands of dollars of jewelry and accessories for FREE
* Confidence, Fearlessness and Tenacity that I didn’t even know I had in me!
* Christmas gifts, vacations and other “treat yo’self” splurges paid for in cash
* Thousands donated to charity and people in need
* Promoted to Star Stylist!
If you would’ve told me that paying $199 for $450 in jewels with the intention of just scoring a sweet discount would lead me to all of the above, I would’ve rolled my eyes and told you that you were crazy, but here I am, living proof that its true! You’ve watched it all happen over the past 18 months. SO, stop wondering what could be and in the words of Shia LaBoeuf, JUST DO IT!
you clearly have questions, so email me so I can answer them for you! xo
