Friday Favorites – What’s New With You

I seem to always have good intentions with this link up, but that first Thursday always sneaks up on me! I wanted to drop in and share some of what we have been up to lately, and some favorites.

Favorite Moments: Grabbing a delicious and much needed strawberry mojito. This has pieces of strawberry and mint in it and it was sooooo good. I cant wait to grab another!

Wednesday, I grabbed a delicious cobb salad from Paramount with a co-worker. We sat out on the patio and enjoyed the beautiful weather. It was nice to get out of the office for a bit.

Wednesday evening Chris was out of town for work, and on my way to pick up Zoe, I decided we would take a little trip to the City Bowls food truck. It was parked in a neighborhood on our way home, and it was so fun to crack open the tailgate and have a picnic in the back of the car. Of course, a random afternoon thunderstorm rolled through, but we didn’t let it ruin our fun.

Favorite Sale: The Sephora VIB sale is going on now! I loaded my cart up Thursday night and cashed in some Shopkicks to stock up! (If you haven’t signed up for the ShopKicks app, use my code: FREE413460 and we can both get rewards!!.) I ordered the Olaplex 3 hair treatment that I am super excited to try. Especially with the humidity and stuff building up! I also grabbed the Urban Decay Naked single shadow. It is the only one that is completely gone in the palette and my favorite every day color. I also grabbed the Beauty Blender Solid Cleanser to use my real techniques sponge. That thing is so hard to clean sometimes, you know?And I have been dying to try the Drunk Elephant Baby Facial, so I am grabbing the smaller size to see if it works before spending $$$ on the full size. I hope it is as magical as people claim.

Reading: Scored The Last Mrs. Parrish from the library. Not sure how I feel about it yet, I really dislike one of the characters. I am pretty sure you are supposed to, though.

Listening: I am really into Without Me by Halsey right now…

Watching: We have been catching up on all of our shows. My favorites are Greys, The Chicago trilogy, Blue Bloods, The Resident and Big Bang Theory.

Lusting: It is rare that I purchase jewelry anymore. I have my staple favorites that I love and are on high rotation. I have a few special necklaces that Chris has bought me over the years, and that is about it. There are a few things I have kept of my costume jewelry that go with “that one outfit.” But this layered necklace caught my eye, and I know it would go with so much!

I think it is supposed to rain some this weekend, so we will hopefully clean out our garage some and I guess I will say oopsy to the yard work! I hope to see my sister at some point, she wants to see Zoe. Not sure what else we have going on. I hope that whatever you are doing, you have a fabulous weekend!

    So much good food this week – I”m surprised the tacos didn’t make the cut!!! Where in the world did you get that strawberry mojito?!? I want one in my life!! I’m hoping to get a lot of purging done this week with the rain coming in – and baking a red velvet cake since the husband requested one. Zoe has the prettiest eyes of all time – so jelly.

    I am having a girl’s night tonight, and we had planned to make mojitos…now definitely adding the strawberries I have in the fridge 🙂

    That necklace is awesome!

    I don’t think I’m out of anything, but I love the Olaplex shampoo…I use #3 as a conditioner which it is more of a treatment but when I’m out of it I’m going to the #5 regular conditioner. I don’t have patience for #3 to use as intended. My stylist says that’s okay LOL

    YUM I NEED THAT MOJITO IN MY LIFE! It looks so good. A good salad is one of my favorite things to eat, I know people look at me like I’m crazy or “that person” when I say that… I mean I LOVE PIZZA and everything cheesy and pasta too.. .but I love it when a salad sounds good and it’s amazing! LOL 🙂 Have a great weekend! XO – Alexandra

    I love food trucks! And those funnies are great – the carousal one. LOL I’m also a big fan of “Without Me” by Halsey. I really loved her Billboard performance of it.

    That necklace is beautiful. I got something from Drunk Elephant this sale too. I hope I love it too. I got the travel size just in case I wasn’t into it.
