It’s been a long while since I’ve done a Friday Favorites post! I love these posts because they kinda feel like a ‘catching up with y’all’ of sorts and I think we could use a little of that around here, right?!
I feel as if I haven’t shared ‘what’s new’ with me personally on here lately, but that’s mainly because not a whole lot is new. I’ve honestly just been working a lot! And having a teething puppy to take care of day in and out is a lot of work! I do think the wildfires have played into my lack of sharing lately. It’s honestly just all so shocking to me. So sad. And sometimes I just feel speechless after watching the news every morning because there seems to just be one heartbreaking story after the next. But through it all, I’m clinging to my faith. And besides that? I’m honestly just chugging along with work, puppy, marriage, and life.
I truly have been proud of myself for getting a lot done work-wise. I finally launched my Weekly Newsletter! This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, and I’m just really excited I’ve worked hard and finally implemented it! It’s a way for me to share the week’s blog posts with y’all, link some things that I’m currently loving, share little mini reviews…. it’s actually kinda like a Friday Favorites post, come to think of it! I’m proud of it and loving doing it thus far, so go subscribe!
Let’s see… what else?!
Um, how is it almost the end of October?!
I can’t believe we’re nearing the end of October and that Halloween is so soon! We have a wedding out-of-town the weekend before, so I know it’s just going to creep up on us that much more! I have a certain four-legged someone’s costume nearly ready to go! We’re just waiting on one delayed piece from Amazon and you can best believe I’ll do everything in my power to make sure it gets delivered in time! I can’t wait for you to see the finished look! 😉
Since we moved, the room that has seen the most decorating neglect is my office. It’s honestly just been a blank canvas with a desk, a bookshelf, and a dresser (since it doesn’t fit in our bedroom). When we signed the lease to our new home, I was ecstatic to have my very own home office! I mean, this has been my dream since I started blogging long ago and began pursuing all my entrepreneurial endeavors! But sadly, between getting a puppy that’s into everything in sight and having a minimal home decor budget… it’s just not come to life yet. But that’s changing! I’m ready to prioritize giving this space a nice revamp!
Last week, I was stressed about the fires and decided to randomly rearrange furniture in the space. I love it SO much more now! So that further fueled my home decor fire. I’ve been collecting images and saving items for a while now, but funny enough this home office tour has so much of what I was looking at purchasing/doing myself! I absolutely love how that space turned out and I hope to have mine be something similar – but my own version, of course! I also love this DIY pinboard idea! I’ve always wanted a big inspiration board in my office but for it to be tidy and organized and not cluttered. I love how Whitney stuck with a color palette and how clean it looks. I’m definitely saving her brilliant idea!
Besides shifting furniture around, I’ve only purchased this letter organizer and I already feel like the room is getting that much more chic! It may not be super soon, but I’m excited to share progress on how it all comes together on here!
Drool worthy dining room
I have a serious obsession with a blogger who has no idea who I am… and it will likely stay that way. But I just think Holy City Chic is truly the most chic mama blogger! Her darling family, her beauty reviews, her style… and her home!!! I can’t continue to gush or else it will reveal that I’m a crazy stalker lady. And I promise I’m really not, but I just really love her style! Go see her new dining room reveal here and fall in love as well. That’s all.
Jade Rolling, I’m into you
Have you heard about jade rolling?! It’s the new beauty thing! Except not, because apparently it dates back to 7th Century Chinese Beauty. But hey, it’s new to me! Y’all know I’m
borderline obsessed with all things beauty, so it’s no secret that when the beauty world began buzzing about jade rolling, I was immediately intrigued. You can read about the benefits of using a jade roller here. I purchased this roller and though I’m not instantly 5 years younger, it certainly feels amazing and I can feel it stimulating my face muscles! I’ve also read that it helps with sinus pressure – something I constantly battle and suffer from. I’m eager (but actually, not) to see how it works during a sinus migraine. Also, using the jade roller with this oil set would be the perfect combination! Speaking of…
And it’s amazing. Like, reaaaaallllllly amazing. As in, I want everything. And it will likely sell out way before Christmas. So you and I, me and you… we need to jump on it!!!
As I always keep things pretty darn transparent with Beautycounter, I want to be honest to say I haven’t purchased anything specifically from the Holiday Collection…yet. I absolutely plan on purchasing!!! This eyeshadow palette is every shade I would ever wear, so therefore is a must. I also have my eyes on these new pigmented lipsticks, this illuminating trio, and these pretty nude glosses. Ya know, just to name a few.
The entire collection is absolutely gorgeous and I’m so excited for even more high performing, on-trend makeup that is SAFE! I’ll go more in depth on the collection here soon, but until then… get a head start on your shopping here!
