Hey there – happy Friday! I haven’t done a “Friday Favorites” post in a while, so I wanted to jump on here quickly and share some of the things I’ve been loving lately. These are always quite random, and don’t really have to do with beauty. But they are things I love, and you might love them, too!
Alright so normally I’m not much of a coffee drinker. However, I have been SO TIRED lately! I’ve been staying up late and not getting enough sleep, which I know is so not good. In order to still be a functioning adult, I’ve been getting iced coffee every morning. This is turning into a bad habit of spending money at Dunkin Donuts, consuming sugar, and probably staining my teeth, but YOLO. My go-to order is a small iced coffee with caramel and almond milk. I’m trying not to consume much dairy, hence the almond milk. Totally not healthy adding in the caramel flavor, but I honestly can’t stand the taste of coffee without it. What kind of coffee do you drink?
My birthday was April 2 and my mom and dad spoiled me with an Apple Watch. A few of my friends got the watch last year and really loved it, so I wanted to give it a try. I’m so happy I did! I’ve been wearing mine for about a month consistently and I’m obsessed with it. I love how text messages come through, that way I’m not always on my phone. I also love how I can workout without needing my phone because music plays directly from the watch and connects to my wireless Beats headphones. The best part is “sharing” your activity with friends. A couple of my friends and I can see each other’s progress throughout the day. You can see how many calories each other has burned, what workouts were completed, how many steps, etc. It’s pretty cool!
Rochester finally has some nice weather – about time! We waited all winter for this. To anyone complaining about the heat – please stop. This past winter was such a long one, we should really be enjoying every second of this, because Lord knows it goes by way too soon. When the weather is nice, it puts me in such an awesome mood. Makes me want to do things I don’t normally do, like run outside. I actually did that the other night! I never, ever run, but the weather was so nice I actually did it.
You Are A Badass
Omg, ya’ll – this book has changed my life. No joke. I don’t care who you are, what you do for work, if you have a job or not, if you’re single or married – you need to read this book. It is a game changer. Jen Sincero is such a genius with this inspiring self-help book. She encourages you to embrace your awesomeness, give up your fears, and start kicking ass. I am actually dying to go back and re-read this a second time through, this time highlighting all of the parts that really stick out to me.
Floral Hawaiian Dresses
My aunt is turning 55 later this month and my mom, brother and I are going to Charleston, SC to visit her and celebrate. She’s throwing a Hawaiian themed luau party, and I need to get an outfit to match the theme. I’ve been scouring the internet for something good, and here’s what I’ve found so far. Aren’t these Lulus dresses so cute? Links below:
Hope you have a great weekend!
