Happy Friday! I am so ready for the weekend – things have been a little crazy at work lately so I can’t wait to relax by the pool all weekend. I haven’t done a Friday Favorites in a while so today I thought I’d share a few things that I’m loving lately. Check it out & have a great weekend!
Current Read: Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari – I picked this book up at Target last weekend and couldn’t put it down! Aziz is one of my favorite comedians (Drew and I always watch his stand up & we saw him perform in Austin a couple of years ago!) so I knew this read would definitely make me laugh – I even find myself reading parts of it in his voice. It’s really interesting because he talks all about how dating & romance has evolved throughout the years and how things are in today’s landscape of online dating and social media. And of course it is full of Aziz’s classic humor so you know it’s good.
Current Favorite Beauty Product: I’ve been using this Biore Charcoal Pore Minimzer for the past few weeks and I really love it – I have noticed a reduction in the size of my pores and I love that it is a gentle scrub so it leaves my skin feeling fresh. It also smells so good!
Current TV Indulgence: I know Orange Is The New Black Season 4 came out last week… but I haven’t gotten a chance to start watching it yet, so I plan on starting it this weekend. I loved seasons 1 & 2 but wasn’t so into season 3… so I’m excited to see how season 4 plays out. This is also so random but I’ve been watching a ton of House Hunters lately – I especially love the international version!
Current Favorite Doggie Items: It has been so hot here lately, so when we’ve been walking the pups as late in the evening as we can (even at 8:00 it’s still over 90 degrees out!). We always take this Gulpy Waterbottle for them because it has a built-in bowl which makes it so easy to carry & for the dogs to drink out of. I’ve also been brushing my bigger dog, Miles, with this Shed Monster brush to remove all of his loose hairs. He is a german-shepherd mix so he has long, thick hair and he tends to shed quite a bit and sheds even more in the summer. Using this brush has really helped with his shedding in the house and I’d like to think it helps him to stay a little bit cooler as well. PS – he totally has the fashion-blogger-smile-while-looking-away-from-the-camera pose down pat! 🙂
Current Summer Wardrobe Must-Have: I am all about the white handbag for summertime (as seen here, here, here, and here!). I love how crisp and clean it makes every outfit look. Shop some of my favorites in the widget below (you may have to turn off your ad blocker to view):
Current Favorite Sweet Treat: So a few years ago I randomly bought some Blue Bell Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies & Cream Ice Cream and it turned out to be the best ice cream I’ve ever had! I never saw it in stores again after that one time so I did a little research on the Blue Bell website (because it was that important to me that I track down this ice cream) and discovered it was a seasonal flavor. I’m still on the lookout for this amazing ice cream, but in the meantime I’ve learned to recreate a similar flavor by crumbling up Oreos on top of regular Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. You gotta do whatcha gotta do!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
