Friday Favorites

Friday favorites august 18

Happy Friday!

It’s been another crazy-busy week with work and blog planning. Thankfully, the weather finally cooled down around here so I can work outside! I missed sitting outside and soaking in the sunshine, but the 90+ degree temperature and smoky air made it impossible.

We don’t have any real plans for this weekend – I may end up doing some thrift shopping in Seattle, or taking a long hike. I spent last weekend sick, so I look forward to accomplishing more and finding time to relax, too!

Here are some of my favorites from the internet this past week:

  • I’m obsessed with face masks right now, and Hello Glow posted a handy guide to choose the right mud for your skin type! My next purchase will probably be some Fuller’s Earth Clay Powder to combat the hyperpigmentation I’m fighting this summer!
  • During the summer, I am lazy as shit when it comes to my hair. I usually just let it air dry, or put it up in a bun and leave it be. Camille Styles rounded up the best products to use while air drying your hair to leave it silky, beach-wavy, and smelling great!
  • It’s that time of year again when I start eyeing up new sneakers – and these from Nike are my current favorites. I am keeping a close eye on Amazon to see if they go on sale!
  • Man Repeller asked their readers for the most addicting books, and they delivered! I will need to add a few of these to my library list!

Oh, one last thing – a few people wanted to know about the large plant in this photo. It’s a Calathea Lancifolio, also known as a Rattlesnake Plant. I got it a couple weeks ago and love it – the leaves fall in the morning, and close back up by evening – you can even see time-lapse videos of them opening and closing online!

Happy weekend!

Friday Favorites: My Wish List

Happy Friday, everyone!

Instead of my usual Friday Favorites posts this month, I thought I would share my holiday gift wish list for this year instead!


 adidas Performance Women’s Thrasher Trail Running Shoe

My pink trail running shoes are on their last legs. Unfortunately, these don’t come in my size on Amazon, but they look like the perfect replacement whenever they show back up online!

Claire Spirit Classic Athletic Tee by Skreened

I’ve wanted this shirt for so long now that it’s stupid I haven’t just bought it already. I’m not usually one for shirts with silly phrases, but this one is perfection.

Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl: A Memoir by Carrie Brownstein

I’ve been waiting patiently for my local library to lend me a digital copy of this book, but I’m like #200 on the waitlist. I bet I’d have a better chance of getting it as a gift before I get it at the library!

Amethyst Pendant Necklace from TheRockStarGoddess on Etsy

I want this for no other reason than I think it’s pretty. I like amethyst, and I wish I had more pendant necklaces, so this just makes sense to me.

Dolce & Gabbana The One Perfume

Danny got me the rose version of this years ago, and I have a rollerball version, but I’d love to add the full-sized version of this to my collection. It’s the most “grown-up” perfume I wear, and I should probably invest in wearing it more often.

King Arthur Flour Sourdough Starter and Crock Set

I know I could just make my own sourdough starter, but this is just too adorable to pass up. It’s a sourdough starter from New England in the 1700s, and it comes with the perfect little crock to store it in. I also really like sourdough bread, and this would be the best excuse to try to bake some!
