Hey guys! Happy Friday! I hope you have all had an awesome week! Unfortunately mine has been spent nursing myself back to health. I returned home from our trip to Vegas earlier in the week sick as a dog. I ended up making an emergency doctors appointment on Wednesday morning and was diagnosed with bronchitis and an upper respiratory infection. It makes me laugh because the entire time we were in Las Vegas I was nagging Schoen to wash his hands and bathe in hand sanitizer like I was, and I’m the one who ended up getting sick. C’est la vie. Thankfully my doctor hooked me up with some good medicine so I’m on the road to recovery!
In normal Friday tradition, I am stopping by to share a few things that have made me happy lately in the form of Friday Favorites. Feel free to chime in down in the comments section and let me know what you’ve been loving lately! Have a fantastic weekend!
As much as I hate Vegas for getting me sick, we had such a blast during the 5 days we were there. But I will say, after 5 days in Sin City, I was READY to come home. I’m working on a trip recap post, so keep an eye out for that early next week!
Ok, I’m clearly not a fashion blogger (let’s face it, I live in jeans and converser or workout clothes and tennis shoes) so I’m no good at getting pictures of my outfits. But I shopped on Lulu’s for the first time for some dresses for Vegas…why haven’t I shopped on there before?! I ended up purchasing the Cocktail Hour Black Wrap Dress (pictured above) and the Perfect Mesh Black Bodycon Dress. Love them both so much!
Oats + Almond Butter + Blueberries
So this combination initially had me totally grossed out. But the flavors actually go together SO well. I like throwing in the blueberries during the last few seconds my oats are in the microwave so they soften up and burst a bit. It gives the oats a pretty purple color as the berries release their juices. It’s such a yummy and filling breakfast, especially paired with a few whole hard boiled eggs!
Osis Dust It
I picked up this Osis Dust It powder after seeing a girl I follow on Instagram use it. This mattifying powder gives your hair a bit of texture and separation and helps with styling. I usually blowdry my hair upside down and then dust a bit of this powder on my roots to give my mane a bit of volume. Totally love this stuff! (Hint: purchase this on Amazon, it’s way cheaper than snagging it at Ulta like I did!).
Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme
Two beauty products featured in on post? Who am I! Well, it would just be wrong of me to leave out this Lip Injection gloss by Too Faced. This bad boy stimulates and increases collagen on your lips to plum them up by 40%! It tingles a bit when you first put it on, but then dissipates rather quickly. I love the clear gloss, they also sell they’re regular lip injection (not the extreme) in a number of different colors.
