Weekly Roundup : Friday Faves #25

What is it about the weekend that makes us so giddy? Even if I'm working at the shop (like I am this weekend) it just feels different and more relaxed. The whole weekend vibe is real and whatever it is that makes our brains so excited for it I'm definitely ready for it. Here's another roundup of what I'm loving this week!


I've never tried the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water but when I saw this version which removes waterproof makeup, cleanses and refreshes I knew I had to give it a go. This cleansing water does feel a bit oily but it does remove all my waterproof makeup without a lot of rubbing and tugging which is always a good thing. It's also on the affordable end of Micellar waters so there's that.


I originally purchased this scrub because it contained peppermint and jojoba beads. I was sick at the time and the thought of a cool peppermint-y scrub on my face sounded like heaven. While this does smooth, cool and refresh the skin, I can't say much for the smell. It smells of Windex, which is both disgusting and concerning. The product itself, however, has proven to be effective so glass cleaner smell aside, it makes the cut.



This NYX blush claims to be a blush+illuminator+bronzer. What? This is definitely an illuminating blush...I don't see bronzer anywhere in this product. That being said it is a gorgeous, shimmery pink with just the right amount of punch to it. Mine is in the shade Pink Fetish.



This bh cosmetics creme luxe lipstick in the shade Vixen is seriously stunning. It's a bit magenta, a bit purple and with some blue undertones. It's just freaking gorgeous. The staying power is also ridiculously long lasting, even through meals. It's also super affordable so there's really no excuse for you not to have this!

Last but most certainly not least is my fellow blogger and friend Johnna, who you'll find over on The Sentimental Cynic. Her blog is extremely magical; her photography is amazing and her posts are pure poetry. Some of my favorites are this one here and this one here. Go over and have a peek at her blog, I know you will fall in love!

Well guys, that about does it for this week. I hope you all have a most wonderful weekend! XO

  7. I am the exact same when it comes to the weekend. My favourite time of the week is a Friday night when I'm getting into bed. I always have a big sense of "phewwww!" and even when I don't have any exciting weekend plans (like this weekend) I'm still giddy about chilling out with some movies or something. Hurray for weekends!

    Micellar water of any kind is something I haven't gotten around to trying yet so I'll pop this one into my list. Also, loved your description of the lipstick, it would basically be a crime not to buy it now, right? Haha.

    Have a lovely weekend xx
