Hello from Florida! Yes, I am back in Florida again. Ryan and I left for the Sunshine State last night. We’ll be in Orlando all weekend for a wedding (celebrating Cherayne and Matt!) and I am thrilled to have a few days back in my old stomping grounds with some of my best girlfriends from college. It will be a blast!
A weekend with old friends is obviously what I am loving most this week, but, in keeping with our Things I’m Loving Friday tradition, below you will find a few more things that are making me smile! As always, please jump in and share what you’re loving lately in the comments section!
Things I’m Loving Friday
- OPI’s Ate Berries in the Canaries Nail Polish
I am a pink nail polish girl through and through. Now that fall is on the horizon, I find myself feeling the pull away from the hot pinks and coral nail polish colors I adore so much during the summertime, but I’m not ready to fully commit to darker polish. Enter OPI’s Ate Berries in the Canaries. It’s a purple-based polish with a bit of pink in there, too, so naturally I love it! I used it to give myself a pedicure at home this week and think it’s a great transitional color.
- Your Comments On My Funny Wi-Fi Names Blog Post
You guys had me cracking up with your comments on my Funny Wi-Fi Names blog post. So creative!!! Some of my favorites: Husband and Wifi, Free Public WiFi (on a password-protected network), Los Pollos Hermanos (<—Breaking Bad!), Hide Yo Kids Hide Yo Wifi, It Hurts When IP, This LAN Is Your LAN, NACHO Wifi, How I Met Your Wifi, Wireless Virus
I’ve checked out Zulily (<—affiliate link!) before but for some reason my first impression lead me to believe that the website was a site mostly for moms that featured great deals on things for babies and kids. Well, I was wrong and it wasn’t until I saw a friend post about their Moving Comfort sale on Facebook that I browsed around and found myself pleasantly surprised. Some of my favorite Moving Comfort finds (the heathered gotta love it tunic and the momentum shorts) are 50 percent off! And just FYI, they’re also having a great sale on TOMS right now! (Thanks to Courtney for the head’s up on that one!)
This is one of those random things that I almost didn’t include because it’s really trivial, but I know some of you out there will feel me on this one! The master bathroom in our new house has four outlets. Hallelujah! Every bathroom I’ve used to date has had two outlets and we all know that the plugs from hairdryers and straighteners are often so large that one of them overtakes two outlets, causing me to plug my straightener in somewhere else in the house to heat up while I blow dry my hair. I feel like I am in heaven with so many outlets right now! I can actually blow dry my hair and straighten or curl it in one place. It’s the little things.
- KIND Maple Quinoa Granola
I first discovered this granola at my parents’ place and fell in love with the crunch. Another great plus? Each serving only has two grams of sugar which is often quite hard to find in store-bought granola. I typically eat it on top of a cup of creamy Greek yogurt for a morning or afternoon snack.
I’m not sure what is going on with my skin right now, but my face broke out like crazy last week. A zit popped up on my chin that was basically the size of my eye and in desperation, I started rummaging around our bathroom looking for something to help clear it up. I stumbled upon this cream in Ryan’s drawer and when I asked him about it he said it worked pretty well for him in the past, so I gave it a shot. Forty-eight hours later, the mountain on my chin died down considerably! Yes, it could’ve just run its course, but right now I’m tipping my hat to this cream!
