Friday Favorites & Finds No. 14

Sweet, sweet Friday. We meet again! It’s hard to believe it’s already the weekend (thank you, 4 day week!), and even harder to believe that tomorrow is June 1. Can we maybe pump the breaks a little? I can already feel summer slipping through my fingers.

I figured I’d share a couple of highlights from the blog this week, since most of us were playing catch up from the long weekend. You’ll want to check out my wishlist of easy summer dresses, this review of Kiehl’s new Calendula Serum-Infused Water Cream (now available at Bloomingdales!), and this shopping guide for one of my favorite home decor retailers, McGee and Co. Nothing like a little light reading to get you ready for the weekend, amiright?!

Oh, and in the spirit of favorites & finds, several of you were asking on Instagram what kind of flowers are in the photo below. They’re Bowl of Beauty Peonies – my go-to to brighten up the kitchen a bit with a pop of color!

Favorites & Finds

Black & Leopard Sandals

I have worn these sandals non-stop since I purchased them. They are so comfortable and run true to size.

Acne Dots

I was very skeptical to try these but they really do work! I think mostly because it keeps the ingredients in place on your skin. They won’t make a zit disappear overnight but they drastically diminish the size and discoloration.

Beach Cover-up

I buy a nice cover-up every summer. I couldn’t resist this one from Anthro!

$5 Striped Top

This top might fall apart in the wash but it’s so cute I can’t resist! Comes in a ton of great colors/patterns.

Target Tank

I bought this in a pinch when I was stranded in Atlanta without luggage. My friend suggested it and I have worn it repeatedly. Bought it in white too.

Amazon Buys

Here are a few of my recent Amazon purchases!

Beach/Pool Toys – Bought this for Scottie to play with at the pool!

Pool Floats – My favorite pool floats for summer!

Beauty Blender Dupes – Because you can never have too many makeup sponges. These are great to keep in your purse for on-the-go.

Handheld Milk Frother – If you’ve been watching my IG stories you know my coffee routine has become quite the elaborate one. Frothy coffee is now a must for me in the AM, and this little gadget makes it easy! BONUS: it’s only $15!
