Welcome to the second post of my new Friday Favorites series!
I have just arrived back home in Massachusetts for the holidays, and holy crap is it cold here! It's currently 17* as I write this... a little different from the 80* weather we've been having in San Diego!
Regardless, I'm looking forward to spending some quality time with my family and friends over the next two weeks! Maybe I'll discover some new things this next week that I wouldn't normally find on the west coast!
But first, let's start with the new things I discovered this past week.
Since I'm traveling and attending lots of social gatherings this week, I plan on taking lots of pictures! That being said, most of the stuff I found this week revolves around makeup and photography, to help me look my best in photos!
I've also found some new protein bars, which are essential when I'm traveling to help me keep my protein levels up on the fly!

I needed a new light-weight foundation and moisturizer so I decided to try this one! And I love it!
It has SPF 30, it makes my skin look smooth and bright (without looking dull like some foundations do) and gives me that natural-looking beautified look without having to use a lot of other makeup (simplicity always wins with me!)
I use the medium shade on my pale-winter skin and it looks great!
Oh, and it's only $7.12! YASSS.
I've never tried anything like this before but this stuff definitely works! It makes your lashes longer and fuller and is super easy to apply.
I also have sensitive eyes that tend to itch with certain makeup products, but since these are made with high-quality, natural ingredients and are hypoallergenic so they don't bother me!
Plus, they are only $13.99 so they don't break the bank! Winning!
Favorite Selfie Stick
I purchased this a few months ago, but haven't put it to use much until this past week.
I've used the stick as a tripod in the gym to take videos of me doing lifts and it works great!
The bluetooth remote is an additional awesome feature because you can put the camera on the tripod somewhere else and then use the remote to snap your pictures whenever your ready.
I've also use it as a selfie stick to take pics of me and my boyfriend at social events (you know, when you don't want to have to ask someone else to take your picture...)
Super easy to use and it's only $19.99!
Favorite On-The-Go Makeup Remover
These are great for removing make-up and moisturizing your skin while you're traveling or if you are lazy like me and hate washing your face with water when it's cold out.
Leaves my face feeling fresh, soft and clean! They also remove water-proof mascara. 🙂
Favorite Acne Cleanser
I've been using this every day for the past 2 weeks and what a difference it has made on my acne-prone skin! My face looks clear, and blemish-free for the first time in what seems like forever!
It's also helped to reduce the severity of some blotchy, red patches I've had on certain areas of my face!
This stuff contains salicylic acid, which helps fight acne, it removes make-up and smells like oranges. 🙂
The price is $16.75 retail, but members can get a discount.
Favorite Facial Mask
I've been using this once a week, in addition to the cleanser, and it makes my skin feel really soft!
It's formulated with bentonite and kaolin clay, tea tree oil and licorice root extract and also contains salicylic acid to combat acne breakouts.
The price is $16.25 retail, but members can get a discount.
Favorite Protein Bars
These literally taste like birthday cake and the the texture is on point!
240 calories, 7g fat, 20g protein.
The price is $19.99 for a box of 12 ($1.67 each).
Favorite Protein Beverage
Those are my Favorite Finds for this week!
