An update to my favorites...

oil | My night time moisturizer has been this argan oil from Physicians Formula. as someone with oily skin, I can't believe I'm using oil on my face. but this winter I discovered my skin had quite a few dry patches that needed addressed.  around this time I purchased a set that included this oil along with one of my favorite BB creams and a bronzer. Figuring the oil would never be used, I tossed it in my skincare drawer, counting it a loss. However, after using it a few weeks, I discovered those dry patches completely cleared up. Perhaps my need for the oil may change going into the spring and summer months, but this has been a lifesaver.

moisturizer | Speaking of moisturizer, I figured I should share my morning version as well. This Neutrogena moisturizer is a newer favorite and while I like it, the chances are gook I may try something else once the bottle is empty. But that's just the way I operate. I like the slick feeling of the product - it feels pretty refreshing in the morning.

pens | The TUL gel retractable pens are exactly what I was needing for my planner. I've used (and loved) the Papermate Inkjoy gel pens for awhile, however I owned the 0.5 and I wanted to try a thicker lineweight. I got the TUL pens in 0.7 and I really enjoy the feel of the pen overall. The 0.5 lineweight has been added to my Amazon cart for my next order.

planner | The travelers notebook bandwagon has finally reached me and after much debate, I hopped on board. My Foxy Fix is used from a Facebook buy-sell-trade group. It is a pocket size in the sugar leather and the color is mochi. The pocket size is TINY compared to my EC planner, but I really like it for making my daily checklist. The inserts I'm using are by Sew Much Crafting and are the week on four pages, which actually gives me plenty of room on each page.

necklace | Stella & Dot pieces will probably always find it's way into my favorites. I managed to whittle it down to just one favorite this season - the Natia Layered Necklace. This beauty is two-part and I especially love wearing both pieces together. But I have worn and like the look of the gold oval on it's own as well. The pearl and soft neutral beads look lovely with the vintage gold. The pairing makes this necklace so versatile and easy to wear with studs or statement earrings.
