Happy Friday!!

So happy to get to Friday and share with you some of my favorite things this week.

The Lumineers’ New Album


I love The Lumineers, like a lot, so after I realized they released their new album this month (Thanks to my brother ;-)) I immediately downloaded it. I have been listening to it non-stop! It’s definitely different than their debut album but the lyrics this time around are even better. I love love love this band and can’t wait to see them perform live this summer. Location TBD, I’ll make a trip out of it I’m sure 🙂

NARS Illuminator: Hot Sand


This favorite is two favorites in one. A few weeks ago my favorite blogger Mix & Match Mama shared a beauty tip with her readers about mixing her foundation and this illuminator together to give an extra boost to her foundation. This was an amazing tip because I agree it gives your skin that extra something that looks like you got your makeup done with a professional. Of course I didn’t remember to take a picture of my skin after applying so I will try to do that at some other point to show my results. Thanks Shay!

Beautiful Weather


Last weekend into the beginning of this week was beautiful in New York. It almost felt Summer like on Sunday. I’m so happy when it’s a blue not a cloud in the sky day. I tried to do as much as I could outside most days to enjoy the Vitamin-D therapy.

Bring the Travel Home


I came across this fun article this week. It suggests ideas to enjoy traveling to popular destinations by cooking a native meal, playing music and creating the ambience from that area right in your own home. I thought it was really clever and gave some good ideas, even if you just want to try something new on date night or girls night.
