A New Day

Taking a look at all of the things I've been missing

Weekly Favorites – part 18

on February 8, 2015

Happy Sunday!

While it has warmed slightly, it is still a typical Midwestern winter (read: dreary). I’m battling dry winter skin, static-crazed hair and the desire not to get out of bed.

This week’s favorites are fairly simple, and one has made a repeat appearance, which I will totally not apologize for. 😉


Aveda Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener – Aveda claims that this little miracle worker can kill the frizz with 5 uses. It is recommended to be the final product added during the drying process, when your hair is at least 70% dry. I noticed a difference with the first use this past summer – it absolutely minimized the frizz and made it almost bearable to wear my hair down. Throughout the winter, it has really helped cut down the flyaways and static. I’m so glad I purchased the smaller travel size because this is really a less is more situation. My hair is past my shoulders right now and a pea-sized amount is too much. You can find this online or in Aveda stores for $11.50 for 1.4oz or $24 for the 4.2oz size.

Laura Mercier Pink Tourmaline Mosaic Shimmer Bloc (affiliate link) – originally discussed in the Weekly Favorites – part 3 post. Both Laura Mercier and Bobbi Brown have this amazing ability to create a finely milled, light enhancing powder. I just feel like my skin is a little dull in addition to being super pale right now. This shimmer bloc just adds a bit of warmth and brightness that I feel is lacking right now. I’ve been using this regularly for a year (maybe 2?) and feel like I have barely made a dent. Nordstrom carries this and 3 other shades for $42 each.

That’s it, folks. And only a week behind… stay tuned for this past week soon!

Have a great week!
