Weekly Favorites – part 5

on October 5, 2014

Happy Sunday everyone!

I’m taking a quick packing break to share my weekly update with you. I’m getting ready for back to back trips for work and I’ll be gone for almost 2 weeks…. so a little panicky!

You’ll notice that my weekly favorites is slim. This past week was very intense – there was a death in my husband’s family and there was a lot going on surrounding the funeral. One of the things that was not going on was sleeping, so I was trying to keep my routines quick and simple, as we were always on the go. Much of the week was a blur, but I know there were 2 distinct products that definitely made my week easier.


MAC eye shadow in Naked Lunch – this has been my go-to shade for years. It can be worn alone or with other shades, but my preference is a strong black liner topped with a couple brush loads of Naked Lunch. It is a multi-dimensional neutral that never lets me down. I have gone through several of these over the years and am about to hit pan on this one. You can get this in a single pan for $16 or in a single for a multi-color pan for $10.

Matrix Biolage Exquisite Oil – this is the Replenishing Treatment (I think there are 3-4 versions). I’ve been using this on my very dry hair that is in desperate need of a trim. It helps to smooth and brighten and does eliminate some of the flyaways on top. What I love the most is that it helps freshen up the hair and leaves behind that wonderful Biolage scent. You can find this, as well as the other versions at Ulta for $22.

I hope you have a wonderful week ahead. I will try to post some touristy type photos on my Instagram: lvp9779 over the next couple weeks. Feel free to join me on my journeys!
