    Friday Favorites | 3.4.16

    Happy March! Glad you’re here for another Friday Favorites! BEAUTY  Cover Girl Ready, Set Gorgeous Foundation | I’ve included this foundation in a foundation and base post in the past, but I’ve rediscovered it as a favorite over the past few weeks. It has just enough coverage for me, keeps me pretty matte, and is a great color match – 210 Medium Beige. I had been on the search for a lighter coverage base for the work week, and I do really enjoy the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer that I mentioned a few weeks back, but on the days I have plans in the evening after work I still prefer to wear…

    Our Iceland Trip!

    I’ve been home for one week now and I just want to go back. Vacation was way too short and vacation from work was definitely way too short.  After a couple of flights we made it our destination at the Keflavik International Airport which is the main way travelers visit Iceland.  The airport is about 45 minutes from Reykjavik which was where our hotel was.  Our trip home had a little bit more drama, but we survived and made it in one piece. Jake and I flew Air Canada to our connection in Toronto for a flight via Icelandair.  Icelandair was amazing, the  flight attendants were very friendly, the plane…
