friday five.

Well hello, Friday. We meet again. Time to sort out our weekend plans. Here’s what we’re thinking:

1. Lipstick Love: Update your fall beauty routine with a new lipstick. Add a little sass to your everyday outfit, or some extra glam to a night look:

YSL Lipstick
YSL Rouge Pur Couture Mat Lipstick 201 Orange Imagine. perfection.
Guerlain Lipstick
for a peachy/nude look like L loves, try Guerlain Rouge Automatique: Violette de Mad 101.
Two Faced Lipstick
Two Faced La Creme: Marshmallow Bunny is J’s idea of the perfect pink pout.

2. Crazy for Curls: We’re obsessed with perfectly twisted tendrils. Tight curls? Loose curls? Beachy waves? Love. Them. All. Here are our favorite looks:

Tight Curls.

4. Face Mask: After months of summer stress and workplace stress, L and I are getting our skin in check. A deep cleansing mask is a great way to start. Our suggestions:

Dr. Jart Face Mask
Dr. Jart+ Pore Medic: Pore Clear Mask: leave on for 15-30mins and you’re left with tight pores and smooth skin.
Caudalie Face Mask
Caudalie: Vinopure Purifying Mask is absolutely amazing. You instantly feel tightening and softening of the skin. No harsh acids!
Jeunesse Face Mask
this quick and easy peel (from my fave, CVS) gets rid of dead skin in an instant.

5. Relax: By some miracle, L and I are both enjoying relaxing weekends at home with NO PLANS. After we wash off our masks (hello, new skin), we’re going to chill on our patios and enjoy this beautiful fall weather.

Beverage Dispenser
let your guests sample a little of everything with this trio beverage dispenser!
Keep Calm Drinks Tray
our mantra for the weekend.
Tavern Outside Table

Here’s to a fantastic weekend!
