Before I disappear to immerse myself in fun time with friends I wanted to pop in to share your weekly Things I’m Loving Friday blog post with you guys! Every Friday we chat about things we’re loving every week and below you will find a short list of the things that are making me smile this week. As always, feel free to play along in the comments section of this post. Happy weekend!
Things I’m Loving Friday
You guys know by now I am all about facial wipes. They save me every day when I don’t have time to grab a shower immediately after a workout. When I saw these wipes on sale at Marshalls, I picked them up since I’ve really liked Alba Botanica products I’ve tried in the past. These wipes are fantastic and I absolutely love the smell. They smell like a mix of pineapple and coconut… Tropical bliss!
- ThredUp Baby Clothes
I’ve blogged a few times about ThredUp, a service I use to send in some of my gently used clothes for cash, but I recently used the site to buy some apparel for Chase the first time! I picked out a bunch of baby clothes for him and they were all adorable and cheap (typically under $8 for brands like Janie & Jack, Baby Gap and more). The quality was great on everything I picked out and I’ll definitely use the site for his clothes in the future. Just wanted to share this one with those of you who might be looking for affordable clothes for your kiddos (or yourself)!
A few of you asked me about the booties I wore in a lot of our vacation photos, so I wanted to share! They’re from Zulily and were only $18.99. They’re comfortable and currently available on the site in multiple colors. I actually ordered them in black this week, too! Just search “Blue Berry Boot” and you’ll find them.
Have you guys seen this show? It debuted a few weeks ago but I’ve been slowly catching up and streaming it on my own schedule. I LOVE it. It’s definitely my latest TV obsession. There’s mystery, action, romance… A little bit of everything. I just hope that once the big mystery is solved, the show doesn’t reach for plotlines and get horrible like so many shows seem to do these days. Stay strong, Quantico!
There’s a new favorite dry shampoo in town for this girl. Living Proof dry shampoo is officially my FAVORITE dry shampoo ever. It won my heart last week and is seriously AMAZING. I used it throughout our mountain vacation and I’m pretty sure my mom and sister got sick of me talking about how much I love it. The company sent it to me to try after seeing me rave about my love for dry shampoo and, truthfully, I figured it would be like any old dry shampoo, despite their claims otherwise. Well, I was totally wrong and can absolutely see why it won the top Allure beauty award. It truly cleans your hair by absorbing oil and sweat and added volume to my roots while taking away the appearance of greasy locks (which is saying something since I have very fine hair that turns into a greaseball after two days). It’s not cheap, but it works better than any dry shampoo I’ve used so far so I figured it deserved a mention on the blog. LOVE this stuff!!
In a past Birchbox, I received a sample size of this Smashbox Full Exposure mascara. I save a lot of my Birchbox samples to use when I travel, so I just got around to trying this mascara on vacation last week and it’s awesome. I’m really picky with mascara (my favorites for the past few years have been L’Oreal Voluminous and Almay Get Up and Grow), so I was pleasantly surprised to like this one! It wasn’t clumpy and did a great job of making my lashes look longer and fuller. I’ll still probably stick to my drugstore mascaras due to the price difference, but this one was still a great Birchbox discovery.
I briefly mentioned my love for these things on Monday, but they deserve a shout out here, too, because they ROCK. They’re easy to find and somehow seem to stay in Chase’s mouth a little better than traditional pacifiers (mainly when he’s sleepy and not super wiggly). The Mango Monkey is our favorite, though we have the elephant and Chase seems to love holding its ears!
