Five on Friday

1.  Yves St. Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer 
 I discovered this primer at Sephora when I went to replace my Laura Mercier Primer radiance.  It goes on easily and dries instantly minimizing pores and giving the skin a luminous glow.

 I have to admit that I do not use masks very often but this one is great and worth a try.  My skin felt smooth and tight afterwards.  If you are unsure about buying a whole jar, go to the Kiehl's counter and ask for a sample.

I recently revisited this eye cream after I saw it on Biana's blog,  Bloved Boston.  It works well under makeup and does a great job of hydrating the under eye area.

4.  Xhilaration bralette 
Total fluke that I stumbled upon this bralette at Target.  It caught my eye when I was passing by.  It is super comfy and only $9.99!  It comes in multiple color combos. Mine is black and white.

5.  Some Luck, Early Warning & Golden Age A Trilogy by Jane Smiley
Emily's mom loaned me these books and I LOVED them.  The trilogy begins in the 1920s in Iowa with one couple, The Langdons, and follows their family as it grows through several generations.  

I hope you enjoyed my five favorite discoveries from March.  Happy April Fool's Day!  Enjoy your weekend!

  12. Um I live in my Target bralette at home. It's so comfortable - it has all the perks of a sports bra without cutting off my circulation when I wear it for extended periods of time.
