Friday Favorites: June 2017

Oh man, it has been a rough week. I had some dental work done on Monday and have been struggling ever since. Thankfully, the weekend is almost here and although it never seems to stay that way, I don’t have too much planned. I’m looking forward to some rest, just trying to stay positive and count my blessings. On that note, here’s some favorites from this month: 1. Father’s Day We had a simple yet very special Father’s Day this year. We started with breakfast out with Jeff’s grandfather and at night we had one big, blended family dinner at Chuy’s. We are so lucky to have three supportive dads to celebrate. 2. New Restaurants I have been all about trying new restaurants lately. I […]

Link Love 6.16.17

I finally caught up on TONS of blog reading this week, my Bloglovin’ feed is finally zeroed out woohoo! So, for Friday Favorites I’m sharing some posts I loved: Life Lessons We Learned from College Interns on Cupcakes and Cashmere – a great reminder to take chances, follow your passion and prioritize relationships. Audrey Hepburn’s Former Mansion is for sale according to Elle Decor and it’s magical. Especially the living room library. My future dream home… Burnout to Bliss: How to Organize Your Email from Bloggers Get Social – as terrifying as it sounds, I think I should declare email bankruptcy. I’ve never thought of it like that before but I have over 10,000 emails to clear out (crazy, I know) and the only way may […]

5 Origins Products You Need To Try

I’ve always viewed Origins in a positive light but hadn’t used too many of their products until I received these complimentary products from Influenster and Origins as part of the My Perfect World Launch campaign. After learning more about their naturally derived ingredients and trying these best sellers out for myself, I can see why they have earned such a great reputation. I would recommend any of these and have introduced them into my regular skin care routine! Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash Derived from Broad Leaf Kelp Extract, Wheat Protein and Tourmaline. The smell is light and refreshing, face feels squeaky clean after but not dried out. A little bit goes a long way in covering face in a thick, frothy layer which […]

Favorites: March 2017

5 of my favorite things from this week… This Song/Video Love it! Along with the news that Florida Georgia Line is touring with Backstreet Boys and Nelly, what!? Ibotta App So, I’ve had this app on my phone forever but had only done one or two rebates until recently.

Corrine on The Women Tell All via GIPHY Although she is completely neurotic, she is the most entertaining thing to happen on The Bachelor. I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of her.

Five on Friday – Catching Up

One//The Grammy’s. Did you catch The Grammy’s? – I don’t usually watch all the award shows but I felt the need to watch this one because I’ve been loving so many of the artists performing and I wanted to see if anything came of the TSwift/Kanye drama…could Taylor be any more awesome? via GIPHY I have so much respect for her, she’s so classy and I’m glad she won the big award and made a statement!

Friday Favorites: Cold & Rainy Edition

Happy Fri-Yay!! This week has flown by but it has been raining for days so I’ve been stuck inside most of the time. So I’m doing a special edition of Friday Favorites and sharing all my favorite things to help me enjoy the cold and rainy weather! Comfy Clothes Give me my sweats or some yoga pants and a tshirt and I’m good to go.

I change the second I get home and I practically live in my PINK Boyfriend Pants or yoga leggings. I don’t care how basic it is, comfort is key! Fuzzy Socks & Slippers Another […]

Gotta get down on Friday!

It’s Friday, Friday…Gotta get down on Friday! (That tune is still in my head every single Friday) We made it. We made it through the first full week of the year! It wasn’t easy but we did it and I’m so very ready for the weekend. It was a stressful week, too many changes at work for the first week back. My closest coworker and friend at work had her last day and a new person (who I will now be reporting to) joined the team. I’m having a lot of anxiety over these changes but trying to relax with lots of prayer and yoga. Thinking on this verse: Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present […]
