Thoughts For Friday

Apr 13, 2018

TGIF!  I don’t know about y’all but this week has flown by to me!

I am so proud of myself because I have kept this plant alive for 2 months now.  I normally kill everything so this is progress.  I have had a lot of questions about my blinds and they are from Select Blinds.  The artwork is from Pottery Barn.

Tom Ford Book | Favorite Nest Candle

Favorite purchase from the Shopbop sale, this ruffle tee.  I wore it last night to supper club.  I am wearing a size 1.

Ruffle Tee (also HERE) | Jeans | Sandals

Today starts the big Sephora Beauty Insider sale.  You can save 15% off everything.  These two Dr. Brandt products are new favorites.  The magnetic mask is crazy cool.  You apply it and let it sit and then afterwards you use a magnet to take it off.  My mom and sister and I did together and we all 3 loved it.  It makes your skin feel like silk afterwards.

I had so many people rave about the Needles no More products.  My under eye circles and bags are my biggest face concern.  It is a de puffing eye gel.  I have been using this a few weeks and can def see a difference!

This Taco Salad has been a recent weekly favorite dinner.

Shredded Lettuce |  Taco Meat ( I use this seasoning recipe) | Shredded White Cheddar Cheese | Refried Black Beans | Pico de Gallo | Plantain Chips

New breakfast I have been loving.  Whole Grain Toast + Avocado + Everything But the Bagel Seasoning + Arugula + Radishes and Olive Oil drizzled over the top.

Outfit Planning.  Everything is on sale but the sandals and earrings.

Blouse | White Shorts | Earrings | Sandals | Sunglasses

I just picked up Kristen Caverilis new cookbook, True Roots and I am super excited to try some of the recipes out.

Loving this off shoulder dress, also part of the Shopbop sale.

Embroidered Dress

Also love this dress.


This is a common scene at our house every single day.  Frances loves to pull out as many toys as she can.

Have a great weekend!
