If you’re like me and your husband doesn’t work a traditional job, then that means nothing to you and I think we deserve to wallow in self pity. This week I’ve been metaphorically drowning in blog deadlines, emails, messages… And literally drowning in piles of laundry. I got through toddler meltdowns, doctor appointments, vacuuming my baby (yes, seriously. Don’t worry, his hand is still attached), and even managed to start doing yoga and excercising. I can now say that I am caught up, I have survived and that calls for a little celebration! 😉 Margaritas tonight, anyone? I also realized a few days ago that even though I’ve been blogging for months now, I’ve never done a Friday Favorites post. WHAT. So I wanted to share some pretty awesome things that some pretty awesome businesses have been kind enough to gift me with that I think you’ll all love, too!
1. Hello, Arm Party!
How gorgeous are these beaded bracelets from Goldy Fox? I’ll be honest and say that I’ve never been a big bracelet person, but I’ve seen the light now and I’m obsessed. The mama that runs this shop is so sweet and each of the bracelets are handmade by her. I topped it off with a Loren Hope cuff!
2. CarriEight Picnic Basket
I’m at risk for having this stolen. My mother-in-law used it at Christmas to transport food and she’s had her eye on it ever since. It’s genius y’all! It’s insulated, very roomy, has sturdy handles and is super cute. Perfect for traveling or having a picnic.
3. Lorena Canals Rug
This rug was the PERFECT touch to our bedroom. They are generally for kid’s rooms and nurseries, but since all 4 of us are in one room right now, our bedroom is also a kid’s room. Call me crazy, but nothing feels better than stepping out of bed onto a fuzzy, soft rug. Bonus, this rug is washable! I also love that their rugs are made from raw materials and use natural dyes.
4. Saranoni Throw Blanket
Holy softness. I have no idea what a cloud in Heaven feels like, but I’m pretty sure that this thing comes close. Not only is it gorgeous, but it’s so cozy, I am constantly bundled up in it. Also, that wooden stacking toy from Smiling Tree Toys is our new favorite!
5. Coco and Kiwi Diaper Bag
IN LOVE. This bag is a super functional diaper bag, but it looks like a designer handbag. This bag has so many compartments, a changing pad, insulated drink holders, just about anything you could need. Oh and while we’re at it, this MaLyn Logic sweatshirt is so comfy and cute! She makes the best shirts y’all.
6. Pure + Radiant Skincare
I got the scrub, face mask and face wash and I have to say I’ll probably never use another brand in my life. This stuff is the absolute BEST. My skin has been so happy and I love how when I’m using this, it feels like an experience. I get to slow down and just enjoy the peace and quiet. Even if it’s only for 10 minutes. 😉
I hope y’all have a fabulous Friday and be sure to go check out all these brands!
