Five Faves on Friday

June 9, 2023

Happy Friday! I am back again today, sharing the little touches of whimsy that have brought me joy this past week.  I hope you had a lovely week, let the weekend funners begin! 

1. ~ Starting things off with this cutesy disco ball that I ordered on a whim. I have been obsessed with browsing the "dopamine decor" trend on Pinterest, Instagram and TikTok. One common item when browsing around was the disco ball and I knew right away that I had to get my hands on one. I picked up this little cutie disco flower and it has made me insanely happy since hanging it in my "babe cave".  

2. ~ I attended to my first pilates class this week and I really enjoyed it! I am looking for FUN ways to move my body, that don't involve me dreading it before it even begins. I won't say the pilates class was fun... (I don't think I will ever classify working out as fun, sadly)... but it was enjoyable enough that I will definitely go again. 

3. ~ I went and got a much needed pedicure and refill today and decided to go with this soft and pretty sheer pink by DND. The color is #059 "sheer pink" and its definitely going to be one of those colors that I get when I have no clue what to choose. It's sheer but also a little opaque, if that makes sense. And it has a slight lilac-y tone to it. I love it! 

4. ~ This was definitely one of those weeks where I didn't put much effort into my outfits, and I think that terrible smoky cast from the Canadian wildfires had a lot to do with that. The air was just so thick and gloomy, I had no desire to put on a cute outfit.  However, I did put a little something together on Wednesday and it definitely lifted my spirits. These green pants from TJ Maxx are so different and fun. I love the tie waist and tie ankles. 

5. ~ I picked up these tropical summer potted plants from Costco this week and they have brought me sooo much joy! Seeing these when I walk up to my front door has been a highlight of the week, for sure! They are so bright and tropical, love love! 

Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo ~ Thanks for reading! 

Five Faves on Friday

June 2, 2023

Happy First Friday of June! It utterly amazes me how quickly these months seem to just fly. I swear it seems like a week goes by and BOOM! We are in the next month. I am excited to partake in some summer fun. I am looking forward to dining and cocktailing outside...going on long walks and taking in the vibrant green trees and the beautiful summer blooms.  Weekend trips to the farmer's market. Evening ice cream dates...movies in the park, etc etc! Bring on all of the happy summer things!

Today I am sharing some of the things I loved this past week. 

1. ~ I have been being intentional about moving my body more and going on long walks around my neighborhood. I live in a very hilly area, so I actually like to call them hikes, LOL! But these walks have been doing my body GOOD. The highlight of this week's walks was definitely seeing a family of bunny rabbits hopping away as we walked up. 

2. ~ Speaking of doing my body GOOD, I have also been loving eating more salads this week. Every night for dinner has been a different variation. This one was my fave - a simple grilled shrimp greek-inspired salad. We have really been loving grilled shrimp as a protein choice for our salads. It's so quick and easy when you don't have much time to prepare - I simply coat them with a good infused olive oil, sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning and cook on the gas grill. Done! 

3. ~ This "Cassili Fragrance from Parfums de Marly" has quickly become my favorite for the warm weather! I am a sucker for soft and pretty scents, and this one is absolutely gorgeous!  Its's a fruity floral, but it's also rosy and warm with hints of vanilla. Definitely worth a blind buy, if you're into those types of fragrance profiles. 

4. ~ Old Navy Pixie pants are a forever favorite for my work wardrobe! I like to pick up a few fresh pairs every season because i literally wear them a couple times a week to work. I love the fit of the pixie and they come in the best classic colors and also some fun patterns and shades to switch things up. I picked up new black, navy blue and gray to get me through the next few months. 

5. ~ ALL PINK EVERYTHING! Wearing all pink is such a mood booster. I decided to just throw on all different shades and this was such a fun look for the office on Monday.
