Friday Favorites


ONE / My personal skincare
I'd asked y'all in a previous post for recommendations on good skincare products and after doing the research I think I've finally nailed down a regimen that works for me. I'll be sharing in a separate post soon but I thought I'd share a few of of my must-haves: No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum, Luminance Skincare Deep Hydration Organic Moisturizer and CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser. I've definitely noticed positive changes in my complexion since sticking to my routine.

TWO / "No is a complete sentence."
Do you guys remember the actress who played the eldest daughter in Mrs. Doubtfire? Well, she has a blog that I've followed for a few  years now and her latest essay No is a complete sentence is something I can definitely relate to.

THREE / Mila Isabella
My sister had her baby a week ago(!) and I seriously cannot get enough of my niece. Those tiny hands and feet! That newborn smell! I'm so in love. Spending time with her has gotten me even more excited for Walker's arrival. Not gonna lie, it's also caused me to be a bit terrified by the reality that soon I will have my own tiny human to be responsible for. I know this is normal, but still! My sister also had the easiest labor EVER (Mila was out in 4 pushes) and my one wish is that I have a similar experience. I can only hope to be so lucky haha.

FOUR / Zucchini "noodles"
I'm still hooked on my spiralizer and am convinced it is the best invention ever. Now that I'm about 6 months pregnant I'm hungry ALL. THE. TIME. Sometimes the hunger just sneaks up on me and I feel like I'm starving (dramatic) so my quick go-to is grilled chicken with my favorite pasta sauce over a bed of zoodles.

FIVE / Offer Up app
We get the keys to our new house next week(!) and since we are going from just 750 to over 1700sqft there's a LOT of empty space to fill. Once we do the final walk-through I'll be making a better list of which room needs what but I'm aware that we'll definitely be needing to upgrade some furniture. My concern is I want cute stuff, but I don't want it to cost an arm and a leg--moving is expensive enough (not to mention so is expecting a baby). A family member suggested I check out the Offer Up app and guys, it's magical. It's sort of like Craigslist and eBay mixed together (no auctions though). The UI is easy enough to navigate and it's pretty simple to use. I found a rocking chair for the nursery I'm going to DIY a bit and the ever-popular Moses basket for just fifteen dollars! The expensive ones are going for $185 so this was truly a steal. I listed our couch we're trying to get rid of on there as well so fingers crossed someone picks that up soon--believe it or not trying to sell a Scandinavian Designs sofa has not been as easy as I thought it would -___-
