Thoughts For Friday

Jul 21, 2017

Happy Friday guys!!  I am so excited for the weekend.

Recent outfit this week.  This one shoulder top is by Susanna Monaco, I just love her pieces.  The material is thicker and sturdy and I like that this top has a built in bra as well.

One Shoulder Top | Jean Shorts | Purse | Sunglasses

My parents took Sterling for a few days so it was just Frances and I this week.  We had fun doing lots of girly stuff like mani/pedis, her favorite.

We also had a snow cone date.

I am wearing this dress in the picture below.  I had a few questions about it on instagram.

I have been missing Sterling like crazy- thank goodness for pictures and face time!

New favorite breakfast- toasted whole grain bread + natural PB + shredded coconut + honey.

I picked up two new products this week at Sephora and already have tried both and LOVE them!

Ouai Treatment Mask

I have super fine hair and the fact that I color it (aka bleach the hell out of it) makes it dry.   I used this mask this week and my hair felt like silk after and it smells amazing.

Dr Jart BB Cream

This came highly recommended by my dermatologist.  I have used it the past two days and really like it.  The coverage is amazing.


Tried the charcoal lemonade at Butcher and Bee and loved it.  I have heard activated charcoal is really good for your digestive system and skin.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public today so anyone can shop.  I noticed this morning that so many things were already almost sold out!

I would say these are my 3 favorite purchases so far but I am sure I will be ordering more!  Stay tuned tomorrow for a post on what all I have ordered so far.

Cardigan | Tee Shirt | Jeans

I just ordered this dress this week and its even cuter in person.  I love the floral print and think it would be adorable paired with booties or even for church with heels. Runs TTS I am wearing a small.  Oh and its under $60!

Shift Dress

I also ordered this one piece suit.  I am hoping to wear it this weekend.  It is super cute on and has padding to help out the bust area:)

One Piece

Last night I had dinner at Leyla’s.  It has been around for a few years but I have never been. It is Lebanese cuisine and it was all incredible.  This Fattoush salad rocked my world.  I may try and recreate this at home soon.

If you like breakfast casseroles check out this recipe Here my neighbor Rick posted.  He brought me some over and it was sooooo yummy!

Have a great weekend!
