Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! This week…oof. I had so many plans this week that I thought out in my head of things I wanted to do with Zoe since it is her last week before school starts. While we managed to squeeze a few quick things in, like grabbing some new shoes and a trip to the library….we didn’t do anything else I wanted to do. That is always how it goes, isn’t it?

Zoe finished out both summer dance and gymnastics this week. I feel like she has grown so much with both. At dance we were in a class with none of her regular dance friends she had been with for the last two years, so she branched out. And in gymnastics I watched her go from being nervous about the height of the bars and beams to hanging upside down from her knees and jumping across the highest beam. Her coaches pushed the girls so hard all summer, and it definitely shows in their skill level. I am so glad that we took a small summer class to get her introduced to everything before we join a larger class for a full session that starts in two weeks.

This afternoon we go to open house to meet the teachers and get a lay of the land for the upcoming school year. I was really hoping for a regular year, but alas, it seems there is going to be a lot of unknown again. I am thankful we still have this year in 4K before kindergarten.

Favorite Purchases: I haven’t done a Friday post in a few weeks, so I have a few new favorites to share. First off, Walmart is back with new colors of my most favorite sweatshirt!! I basically lived in them all last year, and plan to do the same this fall/winter. I grabbed the leopard and want to get the coral and black as well. I have several colors from last year, and they were all wonderful.

They also came out with this henley style that I really like.

I found this faux leather skirt on clearance for $12!!! You seriously cannot beat the price for something so fun and edgy, yet still classic. It runs very true to size and is fully stocked when this post went live. This is a piece I was a little nervous to add to my wardrobe, because it is slightly out of my comfort zone, but I have already found several ways I want to style it and it is definitely worth it for the price.

L'oreal Paris Infallible Full Wear, Full Coverage, Waterproof Concealer -  326 Vanilla - 0.33 Fl Oz : Target

This concealer is $10-12 in stores, but I found it for under $6. I had just finished my shiseido concealer and wanted to try something new to me. I like the shiseido one, but it didn’t blow me away. It is solid and the best one I had tried in awhile. This Loreal one actually provides better coverage for a fraction of the cost!!! I am still new to using it, a little goes a long way!! But with setting powder I got it to last all day with minimal creasing into my fine lines…which is always my main struggle with any concealer. This one definitely holds up to the higher end ones.

Target has kids shoes BOGO 50% off right now. Zoe picked out the cutest sneakers and some glittery ballet flats. Both are very neutral gold tones that will go with all her outfits. The sneakers are so cool because not only do they have glitter and rhinestones on them, but they also light up on the sides!! They are the perfect sneakers to wear with pants and dresses. It is hard to find kids sneakers that look cute with dressier things, and I like her to wear better shoes at school when they are on the playground.

The sneakers are gold on the sides, the pink is really on the tongue and bow with a little pink light up on the side when you walk.

Favorite Recipe: This really is the best balsamic dressing I have made. I have been craving salads everyday because of this recipe.


Favorite Workout: This one has a lot of full body moves, and after four rounds, you will feel it!!

    That faux leather skirt is so cute. I tried to get the buy one get one half off for the girls shoes, but they were sold out of their size. Ugh. My girls are going to have a weird year too. I am sad about that. They want the girls to use a lot of technology too which I am not about. Oh well, I guess we will make it through. Have a great weekend!

    I wish Walmart would stock some of these goodies you always post! That sweatshirt is perfect, but I just want to grab it at the store, not order online lol.

    Those sweatshirts are super cute!
    I’m glad Zoe had a great summer of dance classes. I hope that school goes well for her this year!!
    Sorry you didn’t do everything you wanted this week, but it happens, and crossing off a couple from your list is still good!

    Have a great weekend.
