Every day is Friday for me right now! Lol! But the Friday Favorites link up right here is always a fun one. I think I get my best recommendations from other bloggers! Did you get caught up in the Prime Day and Nordstrom Anniversary sale hype? I did not. I ordered a couple of things from Amazon that had been in my cart but didn’t qualify for deals. I plan today to order a couple of things from Nordstrom when it opens to the public. A pair of black work pants caught my eye, a pair of sunglasses that is a good deal, and maybe a beauty purchase are on my agenda today.
If you have an iphone 7 like me, you might love this recent Amazon find. And, this is only needed if you don’t use wireless earbuds, of course. This is really cool and lets you charge and listen with earbuds at the same time.
I hit up my two consignment store faves this week and found this blouse by a brand I’ve only seen at Steinmart called “Democracy”. The consignment store price was $16 – fairly high for consignment – but I knew my brand and it is high at Steinmart. It’s the same brand as my fruit blouse here. I paid almost $40 for that I think because I loved it so much! I plan to wear it with my olive Target Universal Thread shorts this summer and my Matilda Janes in the fall. I love to merely switch up my pants for shorts and vice versa. If you wear mostly jeans in fall and winter, denim shorts are your best friend in summer. It’s not rocket science, but I think it’s a trick that makes life easier.
It’s a bit snug in the stomach area after vacation, but I’m hoping to depuff by making better food and drink choices now! The struggle is real! But, I can still return it so let me know if you think it looks bad!
I had a favorite summer hat from Target that was lost to the Lake Michigan waves two years ago. I replaced it with a splurge for me because I have a friend who swears by this hat brand. I’m super happy with it if you’re in the market!
Right after college, 7 layer Mexican dip was my signature. People loved it. I recently came across a new “recipe”. Instead of just refried beans, start with this Fritos bean dip on the bottom, then layer guac, sour cream with taco seasoning mixed in, followed by cheese, tomatoes and green onions. So good!
If you like light lip colors, try Revlon Kiss Cushion. I can’t read the name of this color because it’s in 1 pt. font, but my friend J had a red version of it and it looked great on her so I gave this pink a try. The tip is spongey and you twist it to get the product out. I think it was around $7 at Target. I have talked soooo much about lipstick this summer! Go here and here if you are also obsessed!
Run, don’t walk to Trader Joe’s! This is soooo good! I have only tried this one – the peach- on an employee’s recommendation. I was going to mix it with o.j. for a peach mimosa but it was so good alone! It is light and refreshing and not too sweet with a nice little fizz.
I can’t remember where I read about this but I love it! I don’t even need my foundation really. I have a summer total face makeup post coming next week even though I’m no expert.
I bought this to go over it and I’m really liking it, too.
And, finally, run – don’t walk – to Bath and Body for this Volcano candle dupe wallflower! I plan to put this in my classroom to combat eau de stinky teenager when school starts!
Well, that was random! Come back next week to see my Amazon goods – if they work out and I can recommend them, my summer total face makeup, my week and weekend recap, and more!
I love your comments and I’m having so much fun in this space. So, thank you!!!!
Have a wonderful weekend! We have high heat indexes so you will find me in my basement with a sweatshirt on!
