The days are passing quickly and before you know it, it will be Christmas Eve! Are you ready? This week’s Friday Favorites are all over the place as per usual – I’m sharing a favorite planner as well as some of the products I use that provide solutions for some of the minor inconveniences I experience. Let’s get to it!
My Favorite Planner
As 2022 nears it’s time to get set up for success! I swear by a good planner and I’ve tried so many over the years. From the super expensive ones to very basic calendars, I’ve tried them all. The super fancy ones have too many bells and whistles. My needs are fairly basic but I like having extra space for notes and lists. This planner is my favorite! This is the 3rd year in a row I’ve purchased it and I can honestly say it meets all of my needs. It has a hard cover, a pocket inside, stickers, and tons of space to write. The best news? It is under $20 and looks way more expensive than that!
My Favorite Solution to Ensure Comfy Feet
This time of year I’m wearing my booties and even heels when I dress up. There’s no way I am wearing knee high stockings and I’ve tried so many different little footie stockings. Hands down the very best are made by Sheecsocks. They have a solution for every type of footwear. No matter what shoe you are wearing, Sheecsocks has a product. No more blisters or rubbed raw areas – and when you wear these no-show socks they stay put. They also make these for men – and I will be gifting these to my sons. They are just as affordable as the ones you might find in stores but the quality is beyond compare.
My Favorite Solution for Avoiding Over Exposure
I’ve certainly told you about my love of Half Tees before but it’s worth mentioning again. From time to time I pull these out and wear them under a blouse or top that is cut too low. In my hot climate, a Half Tee helps take one of my summery dresses and makes it more seasonably appropriate. Even better, when I pull out a top that would normally require a strapless bra I can simply throw on a Half Tee and go! No strapless bra required! They work well under sweaters and jackets too – especially when you don’t need the added warmth of a full layer but need extra coverage to avoid exposing too much. I have the Basic Half Tee and 2 of the Boyfriend Half Tees (one in white and one in black).
It has been so hot here – in the high 80’s that I wore my slip dress on Monday afternoon. By wearing the Half Tee with it, I didn’t have to wear a strapless bra and I had no lines from the hem of a tee. This product is pure genius!

My Favorite Bodysuits
The best thing about a bodysuit is that it smooths out your tummy and midsection. There’s also no worry about tucking or adding extra bulk. I’ve had a few in the past from Amazon but I actually prefer these from Express. The material is thicker and they have a thong back. Essential for avoiding visible panty lines! They work so well under jackets and sweaters and completely solve the tucking problem – you’ll always look put together.
Favorite Way to Get in the Holiday Spirit
My husband and I attended a concert on Sunday afternoon and it was all big band Christmas music! Getting dressed up and listening to live music like that is one of my favorite ways to get into the holiday spirit. The outfit I wore featured nothing new – all old pieces but I still love them. I wore this red lip and if you’re looking for a long lasting product in a great, classic shade this is it! It’s called VIP and right now it’s 20% off!
This plaid blouse is one I purchased last year and I just love it! This same plaid is not available this year , BUT this one is! Right now it’s under $30 and I am seriously thinking I need it.
Friends, I hope you have a wonderful and festive weekend! I look forward to seeing you back here on Monday and until then – stay well and choose happy!
