Hope you are having a good week! I wanted to start doing 'Fav things of the week' as much as possible. I love to write and connect with you through your comments through e-mail and comments on each blog post. I would love to hear your top 5 favs this week as well. (side note: You can peek at everything by clicking on the image and you can purchase the item or save for inspo.)

Free People two-piece set. FP is hands down my favorite place to shop because of the quality and everything is effortless. I snagged a small in the set and wear a size 4 and bra is top 34 D for sizing guide. This is probably one of my favorite things in my closet now and can be worn separate or together. I like to buy things that can be worn multiple ways.

I ran out of foundation and as us girls know- buying your next foundation is an investment. I went with Bobbi Brown 'Skin long-wear weightless foundation' SPF 15. I like that it gives me full coverage but still very light on my skin. I personally do not like makeup to feel heavy on my face or get on my pillows if I am laying on the couch. I got it on Saturday and used it everyday so far- love!

Love a good eyeliner? I found out about Bobbi Brown's 'gel eyeliner' from a makeup artist years ago hands down the best. You can use the brush linked below as well to put the liner directly onto the water line of your eye and stays on forever. Hands down a must in your makeup bag if you are shopping around for a new one and comes in a few different shades for you as well. What is your favorite one that you use right now?

Ok, phone cases! They are such a fun accessory, agree? I have pop sockets coming out soon that have my designs so stay tuned for those! In meantime, you can shop artwork under 'By Tessa'). Everyone was so helpful in picking out their favorite top 3 designs for the pop sockets on my Instagram ( you can follow me here and I LOVE interacting with everyone through DM etc. You guys rock). I love the Kate Spade Lace Case- so unique! You can see me holding it in the pic above. I added 2 images below that you can click & take you two different places to purchase this bomb phone case.

I have blogged about this candle before but here we go again! haha  I stayed at a boutique hotel in New York City that pumped a scent outside in their patio around and throughout the hotel. I came back to Charlotte and was on a mission to find this scent in a perfume or something. I found this candle that smells like heaven! I have a perfume that matches the scent by Tocca- Florence that you can snag here.  Hope you enjoyed these quick top 5 fav of the week and thank you for stopping by!
