Friday Favorites (June 2017)

I have a few favorites to share today!

Friday Favorites

The Clothes:

First, this off the shoulder top from the Gap in white. I was so excited to find it not only because it fits well but the price point is perfect. I had been eyeing this Splendid version  for a while (LOVE SPLENDID!) so I was glad that I finally picked one! While they are slightly different tops, I don’t think you need both. Just pick the one that fits the best. The Gap top runs much bigger than the Splendid top.

It’s important that I say again that I love the lululemon Lost in Pace shirt. I wore it for the race last weekend and really love how it fits! I do not run in tank tops all summer because I look to protect my skin as much as possible from the sun. So, this shirt gives me that coverage for my back, neck and arms without letting me get hot.

I like the loose fit of the sleeves and the rest of the shirt flows so easily as compared to more fitted nature of the Run Swiftly.

Beauty & Skincare:

We LOVE this Burt’s Bee’s After Sun Soother moisturizer. I use it all of the time, not just for after the sun! It goes on super smooth and leaves the skin soft immediately with being greasy. With a mild scent, the ingredients list is minimal and is free from the parabans and “bad” ingredients.

I’ve been using the SkinCeuticals Tone Equalizing Toner for a while now after I wash my face. Toners are critical for balancing your PH after washing your face and this one gently exfoliates too. This toner comes in a spray bottle which I am finding to be great because it is lasting a really long time. Just a few spritzes and you are good to go.

Also from SkinCeuticals worth mentioning again is my favorite sunblock, their Physical Fusion UV Defense sunscreen. I’ve been using it for years which you probably know by now!

A mineral sunscreen with an SPF 50, it’s great for running, won’t clog your pores and doesn’t contain the harmful ingredients often hidden in sunblock today. You are using SPF 50, right? Please say yes, you don’t want to wrinkle or cause sun damage!

Favorite Quote:

I am still enjoying good quotes after last week’s thinking out loud via quotes post. How cute is this quote that I spotted on Pinterest? Talk about a modern-day compliment!


Birthday Desserts!

And since my birthday is on Monday, I am all about cakes and desserts for this weekend. While I haven’t totally decided on my birthday dinners and desserts just yet, I do think that I narrowed down my main birthday cake choice.

I will absolutely not be baking it myself, that’s for sure! Stay tuned. 🙂

In the meantime, these recipes sparked my interest this week while I had birthday desserts on my mind:

Sheet Pan Cookie Cake via Peas & Crayons

Ultimate Reese’s Brownies via Crazy For Crust

5 Ingredient Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies via Pinch Of Yum

Have a great weekend!

    That loose flowy shirt looks so comfortable! This weekend we have a carnival and a street fair going on in town; I think i’ll go down there and maybe meet some of the vendors if I can finish home tasks first on Saturday. It’s one of the biggest events every year in our small little town.

    Also, what kind of dessert do you usually like for your birthday? I love pie actually or carrot cake.

    I’m obsessed with chocolate and peanut butter right now. My favourites are the Reese’s Pieces-filled King Size Reese peanut butter cups. I actually made my own last week and they turned out really really well! If I lived near you, I’d make you some, put a candle in it and bring it over to you and sing. 🙂 Enjoy your birthday weekend!

    Happy birthday weekend!! I would definitely go with the Reese’s brownies 🙂

    I’m doing the RRCA training course this weekend in Vegas. I am super excited!

    It’s not a beauty product, but I got my eyebrows microbladed and I am completely in love 🙂 I recently got a Clarisonic and it has helped my face immensely. What the heck is up with adult acne??

      oh that must have been fun to do that course in vegas, did you love it? I don’t know a lot about adult acne but ugh – it happens. I’m glad the clarisonic is helping! maybe it’s just a phase.
