Hello hello! Happy Friday! Hope you’ve had a wonderful week. What are you up to this weekend? We were originally planning on a short getaway to San Diego but both kids are still a little traveled-out and requested to stay home and chill. (Liv is also still working away on her summer packet.) It will be nice to swim and catch up with friends before we’re back in the school hustle.
Other than that, I’m getting a much-needed pedicure (bless), catching up on work stuff, and taking a hot yoga class. I hope you have a fun and lovely weekend ahead!
It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party! This is where I share some of my favorite finds from the week and around the web. I always love to hear about your faves, too, so please shout out something you’re loving in the comments section below.
Friday Faves 7.28
Read, watch, listen:
Liv and I have been watching High School Musical, The Musical: The Series on Disney+ and it’s SO.good. We’re heading into Season 3 so we can be caught up when the new season is released. The songs, humor, plot lines, it’s all adorable. I’ve loved watching it with her.
Don’t forget to check out this week’s podcast episode here!
I had a Kindle maybe 10 years ago and it got old and broke, so I’d gone back to reading paper books and digital books on my phone or the iPad. I decided to order a new one for Prime Day and am so pumped about it. I love the smaller size of the Paperwhite, like a giant iPhone, minus the distractions of my phone, email, and social media. What should I download first??
Fashion + beauty:
Ok, so these aren’t exactly *fashion* (more function!) but I got P a pair of vivobarefoot shoes and they are SO cute. They fit her feet perfectly, she doesn’t have to worry about tying them, and she said they make her run fast (the ultimate kid test).
Since I’ve recently had to toss my skincare and makeup twice – give me like 6 months of happy eyes and then I’ll go back to my usual stuff – I’ve been switching things up and trying different brands. I ordered this Vitamin C serum from Thrive Market. It has great ingredients, a unique jelly-like texture that fully absorbs, and I notice a brighter skin texture when I use it.
For the same reason, I got a new gua sha stone but chose one that’s easier for me to clean, since the stone ones are more porous. It’s HEAVY and feels amazing.
Fitness + good eats:
Never underestimate the power of meal prep veggies! I love making a huge skillet of veggies to have on hand for the week. This week, it was onion, bell pepper, zucchini, tomatoes from the garden, artichokes, all sautéed together. I’ll add this to wraps, egg scrambles, sandwiches, or as a side with lunch.
