TGIF! Who else is excited that the weekend is here..? Let’s hop right in to this week’s edition of 5 Things I Love Friday, shall we?
We are….HOME! – It sure is nice to get away, but man oh man does it feel good to get home. Our first order of business is always picking up Judy + Bill from our nanny’s house and I snapped this in the car on our way home. Judy’s toothy smile and Bill’s innocent grin says it all…they’re just as happy as we are 🙂
Acure Face Wash – I shared on my stories a couple weeks ago that I have been using the Acure Brightening Face Wash, as well as the Brightening Facial Scrub and I didn’t want to jinx it, but….I LOVE THEM. I have been using it for around 4 weeks in total now and I’m pretty impressed so far. The true test of the product was using it through getting my period and I am here to tell you — NO MAJOR BREAKOUT. I think it’s the first time that has happened in a decade. I’m going to continue to use it for another month before I give it my full seal of approval, but consider me smitten!
Ruby Snap “Mia” Cookies – When we went to Utah, we realized very quickly there are SO MANY amazing bakeries and places for sweet treats. After we ate in SLC one afternoon, we ventured to Ruby Snap, since it got pretty good YELP review. HOLY MOLY! That place is out of this world. For starters, the women working were so nice and friendly. Second, they let you try any cookie you wanted before buying it. And we aren’t talking just a bite sized portion, they would cut the cookies in half and give you half. WHAT?! So freaking good. I loved the Vanilla Bean Cookie with a buttercream beet frosting the best. I know it sounds weird, but I’m 99% sure the beet is just for the pretty pink color in the frosting. Do yourself a favor and check this place out.
Fanny Pack – About a month or so back, I decided that I had seen enough fanny packs in the wild and needed my own. I am constantly out and about with no pockets and I don’t always want to tote around my big purse. We saw a TON of people with nice leather fanny packs in Morocco and personally – I really love the look. I decided on this one and ventured out to snag one, only to find that the one at my store had a scratch on it. BUMMER! I ordered it online in hopes that it would arrive before our trip to Utah, but alas – it did not. Instead, it was waiting for me on the porch and I’m so excited to put it to good use.
Hot Pink Leggings – A couple weeks ago, What’s Gaby Cooking wore neon pink leggings to a Zumba class and honestly – I wanted to grab them right through the screen. They just instantly made me happy. I asked her where she got them and she shared Lululemon and they don’t make them anymore…SO SAD! So imagine my excitement when I walked into the Park City Athleta to discover THESE MAGICAL LEGGINGS! It is totally serendipitous, because not only are they the exact color I was looking for, they’re the exact style I love at Athleta! I legitimately had no room in my suitcase, but planned to order them when we got home, so imagine how excited I was when they showed up on my doorstep thanks to my mom’s intuition. Made my whole week! If you share my enthusiasm, they run true to size (I’m wearing a small), have a stash pocket that fits my mega-size phone, and they’re not see-through which is pretty much a gift straight from heaven above.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
