Friday Favorites 1st of July

Kicking off the long holiday weekend with Friday Favorites 1st of July edition. I’ve been compiling a list of things that have caught my attention lately to share with you. If you live here in the US, I hope you are gearing up for a fabulous weekend to celebrate the birth of our great nation.

Friday Favorite – Family!

I love my little brother so much!

Last week I hinted at something special happening with my family. I couldn’t tempt fate and reveal too much here in case my brother saw the blog. Long story short, my sister and I threw a surprise party for him. He turns 50 next Friday. It was a terrific party and he was SO surprised – he thought he was coming to a surprise party for my sister! It was a weekend full of fun and family and one we’ll never forget.

Best Candle

Speaking of family, I gave my sister and sister in law these candles for their birthdays. Just a little something to let them know I care. The funny thing was that Andrea had mentioned these on her IG and blog last week and I already had them in my hot little hands! Great minds think alike and love Walmart! Not only are they pretty but these cocktail inspired candles have the drink recipe on the packaging.

Favorite New Make Up

Someone on TikTok shared this make up recently and for under $5 I gave it a try. I ended up loving it and have talked about it on my Instagram. It’s been compared to higher end foundation and has received lots of 5 star reviews. I have it in the color soft beige.

I also picked up this lip product on Wednesday. It’s a great neutral as well as a very affordable dupe for Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk. The shade in the affordable option is #15 Lead the Way – it also available at Target.

Favorite Shorts

Lets’ talk about these shorts. I am wearing them often and with good reason. They are lightweight and so comfortable. The problem is they seem to be selling out everywhere. I recently found them on Social Threads. I am wearing them in a size 6 – size up for a slouchy fit. You’ve seen me where them here and here. PS. You can also get the shorts here on sale!

Friday Favorites – Sale!

Target has a sale starting today through Monday. Buy 2, get 1 free on select tops, dresses, swim, sandals, shorts, jewelry & accessories for the family. That’s incredible! Everything you need for summer. Shop it all right here.

Friday Favorites – Shoes!

My final favorite...these shoes. Oh my goodness I have been dying to share them with you! Shoes from the brand Vionic are so well made and comfortable on my finicky feet. I have several pair and wear them daily. They have made a huge difference in my plantars fasciitis. Since I talk about them often on IG the brand reached out to me and asked if I’d like to work with them. They sent me shoes that will be included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! These are new styles that will have deep discounts during the sale. Now that the preview is live, I can share links for them with you all.

I am not one to constantly promote the NSale (as it is affectionately called) but these shoes are definitely worth a look. When the sale opens up, I say grab a pair for yourself and see what you think. I am beyond impressed. I’ve had mine for awhile now and have enjoyed wearing these new styles. I honestly never thought I’d wear a pointy toe kitten heel but I am!

Thanks so much for stopping by today friends, I appreciate it! If you have not already done so, please sign up to receive my posts by email. It’s the best way to be sure you never miss a post.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and get a chance to unplug. The world has been a heavy place to be lately and many are stressed and anxious. If you find yourself in that position please find someone to talk to, do something to relax, and please take care of yourself.
