Five on Friday: Favorites

Today I’m linking up with Smidge of This and Carolina Charm for Five on Friday.

Y’all know I talked HERE about how I was on the search for a good drugstore liquid eyeliner that actually delivered? Well, I think I found one. I’ve used it about 10 times now and it doesn’t smudge or fade! I’ll be updating soon with a full review, but I wanted to let you know this is GOOD STUFF. The best part? It is only $3!

Essence Eyeliner Pen Waterproof: Amazon / Ulta / (It’s $4 on Amazon vs. $3 at Ulta)

 So I’ve been living under a rock. I admit it. While the rest of the world was been Netflixing and chilling, I’ve been Amazoning and Priming. I guess I just figured that Amazon Prime Video and Netflix were virtually the same thing? Well, THEY ARE NOT, says the naysayer herself. I finally started a free trial of Netflix and I won’t be quitting it anytime soon. With that said – I need your Netflix suggestions! What should I be watching? I asked this same question on Instagram last week and this show was recommended.

Can’t stop won’t stop. Jason and I are obsessed. I know it’s a teenager show (please don’t tell me actual teenagers are watching this; it’s so not appropriate) but I love the suspense and the plot! We finished the first season within a week and since Season 2 isn’t on Netflx or Hulu (boo Hulu – get CW shows!), I ended up purchasing the season on Amazon.

I stumbled upon an incredible Instagram account the other day and I wanted to share it with you. Hello Jesse Martin is a photographer and a mom, and she has some amazing photo editing tips on her Instagram page @hellojessiemartin.

I’ve always considered myself hopeless with photography, and I can’t begin to understand how to use Lightroom, Photoshop, and the like but her tutorials have helped me to break out my big girl camera and try my hand at editing.

I’m using two apps she recommended – VSCO and Lightroom. Both are free with in app purchases. I actually find VSCO easier to use, and I purchased a preset library for $8.99 that I can see totally meeting my needs for the foreseeable future.

This is a picture I took with my Canon Rebel EOS SL2 and edited in VSCO and Lighroom, using a tutorial I found in her Instagram highlights.

I obviously have more to learn, but I think this is pretty darn great for my first time ever editing a picture outside of Instagram filters.

So this is so random… but I really love Entenmann’s chocolate doughnuts. Is that weird? I can’t help it; I yam what I yam and all that. Recently Jason went to Walmart for me to pick up a few groceries, and he sent me this picture.

It’s part brownie, part cookie and TOTALLY DELICIOUS. The man loves me.

This crazy weather has my skin SO dry. Confession: I scratch at my legs during the night while I’m sleeping and don’t even realize I’m doing it. I wake up the next day with terrible scratches on my skin.

I absolutely have to apply lotion every single day when I get out of the shower, and these are my two favorite lotions.

 

 

This Eucerin Skim Calming Lotion is a heavy cream, but it sinks into your skin quickly, without leaving a heavy residue. It’s a little expensive in stores (around $10 a bottle) but I found it on Amazon HERE for $7. Tip: Target and Walmart also make a generic version of this lotion, so look for that to save a little money as well.

This is my favorite lotion ever. I know, I know, Johnson’s is supposedly bad. But my skin loves this lotion. It’s marketed as a creamy baby oil, but it applies like a lotion. It sinks in immediately and your skin feels soft and moisturized. I love the smell, too.

This is really hard to find in stores. My Walmart doesn’t carry it anymore, and it is hit or miss at Target. When I find it, I buy multiple bottles. It’s HERE on Amazon for $12.75 (pack of 2). If you can find it in stores, it is usually around $5 a tube.

That’s all I’ve got for today. What have your favorites been lately?
