Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! We had a cold front come in over the last week, giving us temperatures in the low 80s. Words cannot describe how excited I am!! The high Saturday is supposed to be….wait for it….68!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHH!!!!!! So we will hopefully be heading to the Pumpkin Patch, Zoe has been asking to go and is so excited.

Favorite Moments:A friend of mine texted me around 11 yesterday asking if I had lunch plans. I told her that I could easily be talked out of the lunch I brought, so off to On Tap we went! I was good and ordered the cobb salad with grilled chicken and a water, instead of the Irish Nachos and a burger that I really wanted. And the real winner? Was the INCREDIBLE weather!!! It was a perfect 77 degrees and we sat on the shaded patio. I didn’t want to go back to work. Not even a little. I have got to figure out a way to be my own boss to enjoy things like that more often!!

Charlotte Tilbury - Eyes To Mesmerize Cream Eyeshadow Marie Antoinette  0.24 oz/ 7mL

Favorite Product: During the last Sephora sale, I grabbed a Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerize Cream Eyeshadow in Marie Antoinette . What I discovered is that it is totally worth the hype!!! This is a one and done color. Somehow, just swiping a little on with my finger transforms my whole eye and looks like I spent a long time with a palette blending colors to create this perfect look. I have worn it pretty much every day since. I cannot recommend it enough!

The Disney Princess nightgowns at Target have been a huge win in our house. Zoe pretty much wears them exclusively now. I blame this on Laura, who got Zoe this Moana one last year. Since then, we have added Anna and Jasmine to the collection. I am getting the Belle one for her birthday. They hold up well after many washings, and Zoe feels like she is dressing up in a costume instead of getting in jammies….which is a much easier sale for a strongly opinionated toddler.

Favorite Grocery Find: I have been doing our grocery shopping at Aldi the last few weeks. In addition to saving a shit ton of money, we have also discovered some pretty cool stuff! Have you had their Elevation bars? At first I had the coconut almond one that tasted like an Almond Joy, and that was pretty good!!! Then I found the Peanut Butter Fudge Crisp. YOU GUYS!!! It tastes like a Butterfinger, without it getting stuck in your teeth. SO GOOD.

Favorite Words of Wisdom:

Are you ready to dream bigger?

Could not be more true. I have chapstick all over the house

    That eyeshadow is gorgeoussssssss- wow! I have not tried those bars from Aldi and will be on the hunt this weekend, I love Almond Joy’s!

    Aldi really is the cheapest place in town for several things. I’ve started utilizing them more to stretch my budget!! The coconut ones are pretty good too if you like a mounds bar.

    • Reply Heather October 11, 2019 at 9:38 am

      Doh! I didn’t see you mention the coconut ones. I do wish they made them smaller, I can only handle so much of those bars!

  • Reply Lauren October 11, 2019 at 10:08 am

    GOSH I wish my Aldi was closer, I’d shop ONLY there.

  • Reply Kristin October 11, 2019 at 10:36 am

    I’ve been using (the same) Naked palette since the beginning of 2017. I’m totally not opposed to maybe trying something new now lol.

    I keep meaning to check out Aldi. I hear they have a lot of gluten-free items. Those bars sounds awesome! Aw, I love the Disney PJ’s. I think my youngest niece would love those too. πŸ™‚

    I think you got me to purchase that eye shadow cream. It is a beautiful color and I love all Charlotte Tilbury things so far. Love the memes soooo much!!!

    That Chapstick meme is TOO TRUE!

  • Reply laura October 11, 2019 at 4:02 pm

    Ok, FINE I will try that damn CT eye shadow. I want to have one go-to, and it’s sooooo pretty!! Also, I fully accept the blame for the pajama obsession. She’s totally cute.

  • Reply Kate October 14, 2019 at 9:47 am

    I’ve been wanting to ask you about switching from Super Target to Aldi for groceries. I want to, but I’m nervous I won’t find everything and will have to make more than 1 trip each week.

  • Reply Audrey October 15, 2019 at 8:41 am

    Those nightgowns are so cute!! I don’t blame Zoe for being obsessed πŸ˜‰ Aldi typically has some awesome off-brand finds. I need to wander through mine again soon. It really is an amazingly inexpensive store.
    The meme about faith… whew. SO true. Haha. Same with the foot cramp one which seems to be my life lately. Lol
