Happy Friday lovelies!  I'm starting a new series called Friday Favorites, showcasing all the things I've been loving lately in fashion, beauty, home decor, and more. With so many great products out there to try and love, I thought it would be exciting to reveal new finds with you every week or two, with hopes that you'll give them a try! So without further ado, here is a round up of the things I've been loving lately ...

// Swatches of the Tom Ford Seductive Rose Eyeshadow Quad and 
Bite Beauty's Multistick in Broiche on the far right. //

After going through my stash of TF eye quads, I came across one that I typically reserve for special occasions.  The Seductive Rose eyeshadow quad is absolutely one of my favorites, with two soft satin finish shadows and two celestial glitter shades. I've been really into glitter this month and Tom Ford does it best, with a sophisticated take on glitter that sparkles so gorgeously! I first apply the pale pink shade all over the lid, followed by the plum purple shade in my outer V.  I top off the look with either the pink or lavender glitter by pressing it onto my lids with my fingertip.  This provides the best pay off in my opinion, and looks absolutely stunning!   

I can not tell you enough how much I've been loving the multistick from Bite Beauty in Brioche! I've worn it quite a bit in many of my posts and it has made my makeup routine much simpler. Brioche translates on my skin as a rusty mauve tone, reminiscent of the colors that were popular from the 90's. Maybe that's why I like it so much. It has a cream to powder formula, making it easy to apply to your eyes, cheeks, and lips using a brush or your fingertips. For application to the cheeks, I like to apply it onto the back of my hand first, and then use a stippling brush to dab it onto the apples of my cheeks.  I plan to pick up two more shades in Cashew and Caramel, so I highly recommend you give any of the 18 shades a try! 

Newest to Gucci in the Marmont Matalasse collection is this color in Light Pink! It's a petal pink shade in person and love that it's another alternative to nude. According the sales associate, this crossbody bag will eventually replace the Soho Leather Disco handbag, which I've also been eyeing for months! I chose this bag because of the gorgeous quilting and I also love the gold monogram on the front. I'm moving more from totes to crossbody handbags, which seems to be the most versatile for busy gals like myself!
When I first started watching YouTube years ago, one of the first people I followed was Estee Lalonde. Her sassy and genuine personality had me hooked and I've been watching her videos ever since. She recently wrote a book called Bloom: Navigating Life & Style, where she talks about her journey to becoming who she is today. A Canadian, now living with her boyfriend in London, she takes you through her journey of discovering herself, and offers tips for overcoming challenges in life. It's a lovely read and I urge you to check it out!   

As you might know from a previous post (here), I'm in love with the embroidery trend! I'm so glad it's continuing into Spring, extending into jeans, skirts, and shoes. Pleasantly comfy, this button down is one I plan to wear often with jeans, a pencil skirt or with black leggings! I was able to get it on sale in store for $36, so I recommend checking it out in the store first before purchasing it online. It hits below the bum (which I like) and purchased my regular size M. For reference, I'm a size 6/8 and I'm 5'5.  You could also size up and belt it, to wear as a dress! So many options!

Have a fantastic day loves!

Warmly ~
