Happy Friday!! It is extra happy since our office is closed due to snow. This means I get to lounge around in my PJ’s all day and have a 3 day weekend. What’s not to to be happy about? Hope the day goes quick for everyone so you can go enjoy the weekend!
1. Maybelline Fit Me Foundation – I originally learned of this product from Aubrey of The Kinch Life when she did a tutorial on contouring and highlighting. It is a really creamy texture and blends to a smooth finish!
2. It’s a 10 miracle leave in treatment – This is a little on the pricey side as the smaller 4 oz bottle is $20 but it lasts longer that I would have thought. It works great as a leave in and also a heat protector.
3. NYC Trio Eye Shadow in Long Beach Sands – I receive this from Influenster in the Jolly VoxBox and I have worn it everyday since. I love the colors as it is pretty neutral so I can wear it to work. I can add a smoky gray or black to it to transition it to a night look easily. * I received this product complimentary from Influenster for review, but all opinions are my own and I am using daily.
4. Fitbit One – I got this for Christmas as a replacement for my Fitbit Ultra I bought last year. I was a little disappointed my Ultra only lasted a year after the case cracked but the One has a rubber case to protect it from sweat so I am hoping it lasts longer. I love that it syncs through Bluetooth/Wifi where my Ultra had to be plugged into my PC which meant I almost never sync’d it. I love being able to track my steps and set a daily goal so I know when I am slacking.
5. Mac Fix+ – This really is used as a finishing spray. I really like it in the winter because it gives my face a smooth finish and helps to hydrate my skin. I spray it onto a foundation brush and then apply to my face. It really smooths out your foundation in places where it may not have blended all the way and sets it in place so your foundation lasts longer.
What are some of your favorite things?

How do you get your pictures do look cute like that and in the air?
I live by It’s a 10. It is very pricey, but absolutely the best on the market. Literally nothing can beat it. I use the hair mask once a week on my damaged hair and it makes it good as new.
I used PicMonkey collage option for the pic. Then edited it to add the yellow circle overlays and numbers. I kept the background white so it blends in with my background.
It is a really good product. I hope it last long though. Will our hair being so long we need good products to keep them looking strong and healthy!!
Nikki @ The Pink Growl says
I have heard AMAZING things about that it’s a 10 stuff!
It works really well especially for hair that is colored or has heat damage. Makes it so soft.
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
My hair stylist loves that It’s a 10 stuff! I never do my hair so…hahaha TGIF!
Haha! My hair is so long it needs the moisture and it takes so long to blow dry it needs the protection otherwise it’s a frizzy mess. Hope you have a great weekend!

i love my argan oil and pretty much anything by Pure + Simple!!
I really need to try the argan oil since you talk so highly about it. I love my Pure + Simple Lip Oil you got me. I actually used it this morning before going out to shovel.
I am totally intrigued to try this “fit me foundation”! I have never heard of it before. Do you use it all over or just to contour?
I personally only use it to contour but it is made for all over coverage. For contouring i just choose a shade a littler darker than my normal shade. For foundation match your skin tone and then I would spread a bit on cheeks, forehead, chin and then use a brush to blend out. I really love how smooth it goes on.
Kerri @ Simplicity Interrupted says
I love the FitMe foundation, but never saw this contouring tutorial! So excited – thanks!
Very welcome it is a great tutorial. Maskara has a great contouring video as well.
I love that It’s a 10!! I got some free from Ulta a while back and I’m still using it!
It is so good and lasts a long time.
Fix+ is by FAR the best setting spray in my opinion. I usually use ELF for everyday, but, if I’m going somewhere special I use MAC since it’s more expensive. I really want to try It’s a Ten but seriously… SO EXPENSIVE!
I haven’t tried the elf, I’ll have to check it out. I only use the Fix+ in the Winter since I get so tan in the spring and summer I only use bronzer. I have had the same one for over a year and its not even 1/2 gone. I got a giftcard to Target so that is the only reason I decided to splurge on the it’s a 10 but it really does last a long time.
I love its a ten! Seriously an amazing product! I use it everytime I wash my hair to de-tangle it!
I have not used it as a de-tangler!! Great idea! I really love it!

What makes me smile? Oh Gosh so many things girl. This blog post for starters. I love ALL the products you picked. Isn’t it crazy when you hit one year of blogging. I just hit 6 months and was blown away how quick that time went!
Thank you so much!!! It has been such a journey and I can’t believe it’s been a year. I look back at older posts and cringe but know I have grown so much. I have learned so much and met so many amazing people along the way!!
Oooh what is fit bit? Does it track your daily activity kind of things? My mom has been talking about something like this!
Yes, it tracks the number of steps you take, miles traveled, floors traveled and even sleep cycles. It is great because you can check throughout the day to see how you are doing and then know if you need to be more active etc.
Thanks for the tips! I need to check out this stuff. Congrats on one year! You’re awesome:)
Very welcome! Yes, they are all great and I used them all often. I can’t believe a year has gone by. Thank you so much!!
Kylie @ Lip Gloss & Lunges says
I swear by It’s a 10! I use it on every single one of my clients an use it on my hair every single day! It’s amazing! That Maybeline fit me foundation looks neat! I will have to look for it next time I go to the store. Thanks for sharing your favorite things with us!
Thank you, yes it is so good for my hair. I love the foundation especially for contouring. Thank you for hosting!

Mac Fix+ is a staple. I make sure to always keep it on hand. I’ve been thinking about purchasing a Fitbit. Let me know the pros and cons of using it please.
I really can’t think of any cons of the fitbit. I did have the Ultra that broke after a year so I loved it then. The things I didn’t like about the Ultra was completely fixed with the FitBit One. I would totally recommend you getting it. The fact that all I have to do is open the app on my phone and it syncs is my favorite feature.
Amusingly Quirky (@AmusinglyQuirky) says
Sounds simple and easy to use. I might invest in one. Thanks
It’s a 10 is worth every freaking penny. Life changing!
Couldn’t agree more! Makes my hair so healthy and strong.
Janna Renee says
Everything makes me smile! I use Redken Anti-snap as a leave in, and it’samazing! Cheaper too. Great products!
I haven’t heard of that but I will take your word for it and give it a try since your hair is always looking fabulous! Thanks!!
Emily T says
I love “It’s a 10” stuff. I had the conditioner that was the consistency of butter. It’s really pricey, but it made my hair so soft. I’ve never tried the spray, but I think I may have to. I saw where you can buy a travel sized bottle at CVS for like $10.
Thanks so much for linking up!
Oh the travel size would be perfect for checking it to see if you will like it. I know Wal-Mart had the smaller size for $20.00 but the larger size was like $35.00. Give it a try! Thanks for hosting!!
Heather (@mylittlehea) says
I think I’ve received It’s a 10 twice in subscription boxes and I only just tried it! However, I really liked what it did for my hair!
It really makes it softer. That is awesome you got it in a subscription box.
Racing Bananas says
Ooooh, I’m dying to get a Fit Bit. Since you bought another one, is it safe to assume you really like yours?
Yes, I love it. Much better than any on the market, easy to sync and use. It hides easily in my bra so don’t even really notice I’m wearing it.
Super intrigued by this Ten stuff now! And I need to get some more NYC stuff, I always end up liking their stuff!
You really should give it a try. I love the NYC stuff, the colors are so pretty and it is super cheap too!
Kelly Louise says
that 10 leave in treatment is one of my favorite products ever!
It really helps especially for those of us with long hair.
