Happy Friday! It’s time to link up with the gals here!
I take photos of things that make me happy throughout the week and come here to share them with you. Sometimes they are moments, sometimes they are products, and they are always RANDOM! Ha! I hope you had lots of favorites, too!
I ran out of my favorite hairspray that gets shipped from Amazon. Amazon tells me I have purchased it 14 times! Don’t worry – it’s coming Monday – and chose this in my Kroger pick up order. I really like it! It is a level 4 and I would probably try it in a lower level so that it’s more brushable, but it seems to really hold my hair. It was less than $2.50!
Were you aware of the levels on hairspray cans?
I am still loving this duo. I have never had longer lashes. Thrive is totally worth the hype – for me. But, the game changer is the primer. Are you using a mascara primer? I picked this up at Ulta, but it’s also on Amazon and it’s so inexpensive. I like their mascara, too, but Thrive is really something special, in my opinion. I would be interested in trying more of their products, so let me know if you have any recommendations!
This was a huge splurge at $30. $30 for deodorant???? But, hear me out. I have had this since the end of May and I’ve hardly gone through it at all, it seems. I put it on every day or twice a day, too. It has also served as my summer perfume, so if you look at it that way…$30 for deodorant and perfume isn’t bad. The smell is so nice. I really like it.
Whitney recommended this and every time I use it I think about how much I love it. The texture, the color, the smell, the feel on your lips. I’m not saying it lasts all day, but I really, really like this lip product. I bought it in soft raspberry, and I plan to buy another color. I need to experiment with putting a long lasting product down first and topping it with this.
Have you seen/tried the pearl trend? I paired these with my Kendra Scott necklace and really liked the look. Don’t forget to visit a Kendra Scott store during your birth month to get 50% off one piece. That is so generous! A dainty necklace like this can be yours for only around $30.
Let’s talk favorite after school snacks!
I love avocado toast! I have it on toasted Keto bread – spread my avocado and use some everything but the bagel seasoning, add a fried egg on top of that. Yum!
Popcorn! I absolutely love popcorn!
I am so happy to wear sneakers to work. I was worried when I first wore these because the toe box seemed narrow and tight. They have really loosened up for me. My feet are so happy in sneakers on my horrible hard floors. Seriously, my legs have been aching as I get used to doing my job again. It’s just really hard to sit and be effective!
I ran out of my summer fragrance cleaners and had a bit of this left from last year. Run to Target soon and order this. I also plan to get the apple cider scent. I love Mrs. Meyer’s and she also makes hand soap, candles, and a few other things in these wonderful early fall scents.
Acorn spice makes you feel that you are in the fall Pinterest mood board of your dreams!
Did you read my Set Yourself up for the Weekend post? Weekends are great and all, but I felt absolutely decadent after school Wednesday when I came home – no meetings! – and changed my clothes and got comfortable on the patio with my book and…
a Truly. This is not a normal after school thing for me so it felt like I was really treating myself.
And, our weather has just been a real anomaly for August! Normally I would be so hot and unable to sit outside, but we have been in the 80s and it looks like we are staying in the 80s! Does this mean September will be scorching? Who knows?
A couple of updates…
Our board of education met Tuesday night and one board member asked to amend the agenda to talk about the mask mandate in my school district. The board would not even discuss it. They had to vote if they were willing to amend and the majority of board members voted NO. It is beyond me that they are not even willing to discuss the mandate. So…my poor kids are still stuck in masks.
My college kids move back to campus Sunday. I think they are excited for their third year! Since campus is only 20 minutes away, nothing feels very stressful. I absolutely love their college and I’ve been so impressed by all the little touches they provide. The house will feel different, but I think I feel ready this year? I have so enjoyed having them here full time since mid-May, though.
What were your favorites this week?
