Brooke’s Favorite Things
Hello All! We have a guest poster today- my IRL friend, Brooke. She is one of my oldest friends. She is quite the fashionista and beauty product consumer. She is actually in the process of setting up her very own blog where she will review beauty products and all those goodies.
This is very first post and she is sort of intimidated by the world of blogging, so if you are mean to her, I will cut you.
P.S. I have made my own comments in red. Your Welcome.
Brooke’s Spring Favorite Things
Let me introduce myself briefly as one of Rachel’s best friends from high school, Brooke. I live in Birmingham, AL and have been talking to Rach about my idea to start a blog focused on beauty trends and products as well as my favorite things that I am enjoying each month. Some months will focus mainly on beauty, but I also will incorporate some fashion trends I am liking for the fashionistas!
I am working on putting my blog together and hope you will check it out once I get things up and going! So, let’s get started on things I am loving andwill continue to use and purchase! I’m going to start with some new beauty products I have tried this spring.
My Skincare loves:
Sonia Kashuk Blending Sponge
I have loved this sponge!! The tip is great for blending concealer around eyes and the bottom is great for blending cream blush on your cheeks!(Is it better than a regular concealer brush?)
Sonia Kashuk Eye Makeup Remover
This has become one of my new favorites for removing my eye makeup. I am one of “those” people who sleep in my contacts avidly and this is very gently on the eyes and oil free!
I just recently had a makeover at Sephora and the skincare professional recommended this line for me and I am LOVING it! They are all award winning products! My skin is prone to being oily in the T-zone and these products are oil free, lightweight, infused with Vitamin C, which lightens, tightens, and brightens your skin. This is a 3 piece set includes the Sheer Transformation, Invigorating Night Gel, and Truth Serum for a value of $70.00 and normally retails for $101.00(Truth Serum? Verituserum? Like from Harry Potter?)

My Beauty Loves:
NARS Fashion Icon Set
Nars recently came out with this “Fashion Icon Set” that features their orgasm line. I have been wanting to try out some of their products and this was a great and affordable way to test several things at once. My FAVORITE thing in the set is the MULTIPLE in the color orgasm. This is all purpose piece that you can use on cheeks, lips, and eyes. I am loving to use this on my cheeks b/c it has a great shimmery dewey look. After placing this on the apples of my cheeks I like to place some of the powder blush included in the set to bump up the color.(Y’all all made fun of me about wearing NARS products. Becca says it sounds like a disease you get. You know that stuff rocks! NARS, not diseases.)
Merle Norman Shy Violets Palette
Purple, Purple, Purple is my love right now in everything from clothes, to polish, to eyes! If I had to sum up one thing that I am currently drawn to it would be PURPLE! Love this eyeshadow set by Merle Norman. The colors blend really well and have just the right contrast to really play around and get the color you want!
You cannot currently purchase MN products online… so find a store near you for this one!(You have always loved Merle Norman.)
OPI Nail Color
I am obsessed with OPI nail colors. This color “Ate Berries in the Canaries” is my current fave! I have it on my toes and nails right now and this is the second time I have had it this spring season. It has a Purple/Pink tint to it, which as you know I love! It’s bright pretty and springy!

PEANUT BUTTER EGGS!!!!!!!
I had to save the BEST for last!! My favorite thing about spring is Peanut Butter Eggs! This is the only time of the year you can get them and let me just say… They are SO much better than the cups… I don’t know why or how, but they are! I am serious about my Eggs and get pretty livid when people at work go through them without asking! : -)
(Seriously. Girlfriend will cut you about her Reese’s Eggs. The amount of texts I have gotten about it are kind of insane.)
You can purchase these at any grocery or drug store.
So, these are a few things I am using on an every day basis and I would consider my favorite things for the moment! I have MANY more that I would love to share with you, but will hold out until I get my own blog up in the next few months! I hope you will all check me out once I get it up. Rach will have to give me a shout out when things are completed!
Have a Happy Spring!
