Hi friends! Happy Friday!
Before I head into the usual Friday Faves post, I wanted to send a huge hug and thank you to all of you for your wonderful messages, emails, texts, and comments about saying goodbye to sweet Caro. All of your lovely messages lifted us up during a hard week. I hope you know how much we appreciate you.
While I was heartbroken over everything, I feel a sense of peace this week that she’s pain-free and hanging out with Bella and my Tata Gene.
What do you have going on this weekend? It’s going to be a fun one over here. P has a birthday party, we’re headed to a fall festival, Liv’s friend is sleeping over, and we’re seeing Lion King. Whew! Packed as much fun as possible into the weekend. 🙂 I hope you have a great one ahead, too.
A bright spot in the week: seeing Michael Bublé for the second time! The last time I saw him in concert was 2019, and it was a DREAM to see him again on Tuesday night. Madre watched the kiddos and the Pilot and I headed up to Phoenix for dinner and the show. It was everything. He’s so incredibly talented, the musicians were incredible, and I LOVED his backup singers/dancers. They were up there killin’ it the entire time.
Naturally, I screamed my face off and croaked all day on Wednesday. It was worth it and 10/10 will do it again.
We had amazing seats! Also, there was a woman in the audience who has been to 52 of his shows! GOALS.
It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party! This is where I share some of my favorite finds from the week and around the web. I always love to hear about your faves, too, so please shout out something you’re loving in the comments section below.
Read, watch, listen:
What has made you laugh lately? For me, it’s been these chipmunk videos. I could watch them for hours.
Aging isn’t about lost youth.
Fashion + beauty:
Beautycounter’s fall sale is heeeeere and ends on Sunday. Enjoy 15-25% off sitewide (exclusions apply).
Some of my top picks:
Color intense lipstick. Brunch is my go-to for the perfect pinky-nude.
The best body polish. I use this before applying sunless tanner (and use this one or this one).
The overnight resurfacing peel. If you haven’t tried it yet, now is the time!
The All Bright C serum. It makes a huge difference in my skin tone, and can help to protect from further damage.
Our new reflect effect mask! Its bouncy gel formula features a hardworking blend of chemical and physical exfoliants: AHA glycolic acid and bamboo particles for added exfoliation, plus hydration boosting saccharide isomerate to soothe skin.
If you’re going to spend at least $50, I recommend joining Band of Beauty. It’s $29 for the year and you get a free gift for joining (the charcoal mask and overnight peel), free shipping on orders over $100 and 10% back in product credit that you can use right away.
This cute dress! It’s a little summery but so is our weather (100+ this week), so I’m rolling with it.
So many of ya’ll ordered this shirtdress!! I hope you love it as much as I do. I’m thinking about getting it in black, too.
I’ve been looking for a lower heeled sandal to wear with jeans and dresses, so I picked these ones. They should be here today – I’ll report back.
