Another week has come & gone getting us one step closer to Christmas! I feel like there is always such a rush before the holidays to get everything done, so this week has felt busy & your girl is tiiiiired. I’m looking forward to a chill weekend getting a few things done around the house, binge watching some Christmas movies, & just hanging! Before we jump into the weekend, I have another edition of The Weekly Lo Down to share with you all. If you’re new, this is a weekly post & e-mail where I share my fav online finds from the week, answers to your questions & link requests, a roundup of all of the weekend sales going on, my discount codes, recent blog posts, & a charitable organization to consider supporting.
The Weekly Lo Down | 12.11.2020
Free People is giving you $100 to spend on a future purchase this weekend when you spend $150+. I’ve never seen them doing anything like this, so a great time to take advantage! I linked up my current favs here.
If you have any beauty lovers on your shopping list, this holiday gift set would make a great gift. It features my favorite hair mask that I use like a daily conditioner & the hair serum I use.
I got in this enchanted dreams makeup set which includes the prettiest palette I’ve been using for eyes & cheeks! It’s a one stop shop & fool proof because everything looks great together. The set is currently on sale! It’s a retail value of $129, usually costs $59.90, but is currently on sale for $39.
I bought two colors of this long sleeve workout top & absolutely love it. I’m going to grab it in more colors! I got a size XS.
I found Bala bangles, AKA my fav piece of workout equipment, fully stocked in 3 colors. I use these on my wrists, cuffed on my palms, & on my ankles. They are so easy to travel with & are so versatile!
The best bra I’ve ever worn is BOGO 50% off right now. I have this in 4 colors now! It fits TTS.
I am realllllyy crushing on these boots. They look designer in my opinion!
This little cardigan set is the cutest thing. It would look great with skirts or high waisted jeans/pants. It comes in two colors!
I absolutely love these jeans. They look like the perfect high rise, slightly cropped, pair. The wash would go with everything! I usually grab my true size or even size down one in this brand.
A new color of my favorite Air Max sneakers is now available & I am 100% grabbing it. I got my true size in these last time, but think I’ll go up a 1/2 size when I order these.
Questions / Link Requests
Where do you get your decor inspiration? I love your style & wish you could decorate my house!
That is so kind, thank you! Honestly, this might be something I do down the road one day. It has become such a passion of mine! I find inspiration EVERYwhere. I love looking on Pinterest & I follow a ton of inspo accounts from my IG home account @alo_abode if you want to see who I follow for more inspo. I save stuff all the time broken down by room to look back at for inspiration!
Good ‘grab bag’ present ideas!
A quilt! Heavy & nice.
Best/comfy workout or training shoes for $75 or less.
This pair for sure. On sale for just under that right now! They feel like clouds & are so supportive. I got my true size in them.
Weird question! What brand of deo do you use? Looking for one that can handle workouts!
Not weird at all! I’m here for alllll the questions. Currently I am using this one in sandalwood. I also use this armpit detox whenever I wash my hair in the shower & sort of swear by it. I’m not a huge sweater to be honest, but this combo does the trick for me!
Good deal on Apple watch. Doesn’t have to be the new one.
This is the lowest I’ve seen it recently. I think this is the series I have!
Best tips/supplies for at home pedicures?
My best tip is patience! haha I always seem to mess mine up because I put on slippers/socks/shoes too quickly after or one of my dogs ends up messing them up. As far as supplies goes, this little kit is perfect & these always help me not mess up when actually painting.
Cozy but cute/glam NYE?
A 2020 vibe! I’ll have a big NYE post up on the blog next week to help you no matter what your plans are, but in the mean time try these leggings with a big cozy sweater, these joggers, or this dress with a cardigan over it & sneakers!
Stocking stuffers & coworker gifts!
How do you stay motivated & productive?
I truly believe that good things come to those that hustle. I’ve worked hard in my life everything I have & have really learned that hard work always pays off! I tend to be a busy body or a ‘do-er’ naturally, but I keep myself motivated & productive by reminding myself that its necessary to put in the work to see growth + results & that I feel better when I do things. This doesn’t mean I don’t rest! I just personally relax or unwind better when I’ve been a little productive.

I’ve shared Dallas Street Dog Advocates before, but it is the rescue organization where we found Olive. They posted (& I shared on stories) about a litter of puppies who a breeder dumped after finding out that they were sick with Parvo. They are working hard to nurse these cuties back to health & then finding them their furever homes. Parvo is totally treatable, but it can be expensive, especially for multiple dogs. If you are in or close to the Dallas area & are wanting a dog this holiday season, please check out the post here & reach out to apply. If not, you can donate to help these little cuties in their fight here.
Thank you so much for reading through this week’s edition of The Weekly Lo Down! I hope it was a great resource for you all. If there is anything you need help shopping for over the weekend, please feel free to reach out. Or, just reach out to chat! I love connecting with you all & am here to help any way I can. Have a great weekend! XO
