Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, y'all!  I don't know about you, but abbreviated work weeks wear me out.  I'm so thankful for the time off, especially because I used this break to get caught up on blogging and shoot a ton of content, but getting back into the swing of things has been a little trying.  I'm glad that it's almost time for another weekend... I'm ready for a few more days of fun, and then time to actually get back into the swing of things.

I've really enjoyed these Friday Favorites posts because it's an opportunity to talk about the random things I've been loving lately... like spinach.  Why is spinach so delicious and where else on my blog could I possibly talk about spinach?!  Enough spinach talk for now... Here are my Friday favorites!




ChapStick Naturals (Sweet Papaya)  c/o  •  Have you ever loved a product so much that you wanted to keep it a secret from the world so that everyone wouldn't buy it up?!  That's exactly how I feel about this Chapstick. I got a set of Chapstick Naturals for free from Influenster ages ago, and I'm obsessed with this specific flavor.  It's such an amazing product that I got my mom and brother hooked on it.  We haven't been able to find them anywhere locally, so I had to order them from Amazon... 100% worth it.


YSL Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain (No. 9 Rouge Laque)  •  If you follow me on Instagram, you saw the red lip that I rocked on the Fourth of July.  It was actually a sample that came with my Nordstrom order, and I was extremely pleased.  I usually wear a matte red lipstick, but I love that this one is a stain/gloss combo.  It was more moisturizing than a matte product, and the texture was nice.  I wish that it was a little longer lasting, but I don't mind having to do a minor touch up after lunch.


Sauteéd spinach  •  Because of my health, I've had to cut a lot of the fun things out of my diet.  Sauteed spinach has become my favorite.  I have it with most of my meals and even as a snack.  I bought some gourmet olive oils at a silent auction I attended, and this one is my favorite with the spinach.  If you have a favorite spinach recipe, send it my way!


Self-tanning Bronzing Coconut Milk  •  My friend Jenny hosted a Lipsense party last week, and I purchased a self tanner.  (They have a ton of products that aren't for your lips!)  I absolutely love it.  It goes on clear, and you just spray it on and rub it in.  So low maintenance!  After one use, I looked like I got back from a weekend at the lake, minus the sun damage.  I love that this self tanner actually makes you look tan and not orange or unnatural.  (If you're interested in purchasing, you can do so through Jenny's Facebook group.)


Tangerine Essential Oil  •  I have been spending a lot more time in my kitchen lately, so I moved my diffuser out of the bedroom and into the kitchen.  I love diffusing tangerine oil while I cook and clean because the citrus smell just smells clean.  It's a mood booster, as well!  (Click here for my Young Living website.)


Peonies  •  I never understood the obsession with peonies until I bought myself a bouquet on Tuesday.  The bright pink hue of the flowers is such a mood booster, and I had no idea that they smelled amazing.  

What are you loving this week?
