Weekend Recap



This past weekend was one of the first in a long time that I have been both off work and in Richmond with no plans. I can't tell you how excited I was to sleep in, relax, and spend time with friends. Friday I was off work by 5 and headed out to treat myself to something new and just so happened to come home with 2 new beauty products...

Finally gave in and decided on a facial oil- Josie Maran Argan Oil "Light"

I have only used this twice but so far I am loving it! It definitely hasn't left my skin oily or greasy looking like I thought it would.  I also picked up a new fragrance that I am obsessed with-
Since the start of fall I have been looking for new fall/winter fragrance and could not be more satisfied with my pick. It has light hints of floral, amber, and a little musk and while these things are not my normal go to scents... I am loving it! 

After treating myself I headed out with some friends and ended up at one of my favorite restaurants in Richmond- Pearl Oyster and Raw Bar. 

It has the perfect atmosphere to grab dinner and drinks with friends and the food is amazing. 

Saturday was pretty lazy and included my laying around watching lots of trashy T.V but this girl was not complaining. It was so nice to sleep in and have absolutely nothing to do. I did venture out in the afternoon to attend Richmond's first Boulevard Pumpkin Festival!

Lucky for me, Boulevard is just a few blocks from my apartment and I was able to walk over with friends. The festival itself was great and I am kicking myself for not taking more pictures. The day included live music, beer and wine trucks, lots of food vendors, and various activities. Saturday night was pretty low key and included another dinner at one of my favorite spots- Toast and bed early.

Sunday morning I was up early and whipped up a yummy breakfast for my roommate and I
French toast and coffee make for the best mornings. 

The rest of the day was spent grocery shopping and my weekly Sunday tradition trip to Barnes & Noble. 
All in all a great relaxing weekend.

How did you spend your weekend?

Yours truly, 
Emily

I've been wondering about facial oils (especially down here in humid FL), and I'm glad to hear you are liking it. Would love another review after a few weeks. Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend. Glad you were able to get some rest, time with friends, and a chance to recharge!
