It’s FRIDAY! Does that have the same meaning as it used to? I’m going with yes. I’m participating in Fancy Friday each week where we get ready & get dressed up like we would if we were going out. I’m not talking about formal wear or anything, but rather just putting on something other than loungewear or PJs. It’s amazing what taking some time to get ready & get dressed can do for your mood & your outloook on the day. I swear I am somehow more productive. Just as days with no makeup & in PJs are good for the soul, so are days where we do the opposite. It’s all about balance! Friday also means another version of The Weekly Lo Down. I brought this back last week & will be keeping it going each week with little things you may have missed from stories, products I am loving, weekend deals, discount codes, & recent blog posts.
The Weekly Lo Down
The Sephora sale for rouge members starts today! Here is what is in my cart that I was waiting to buy until today: this mascara primer, this mascara, this moisturizer, retinol, vitamin C serum, my fav setting spray, blush (in color deep throat for summer), & my go to face tanning drops.
I ordered Sakara Life meals again to have this week Tuesday through Friday. I am keeping it going every other week during quarantine. We’ve had a hard time getting fresh veggies & fruit delivered when we need it, so this is helping me stay healthy while at home with limited resources. I thought doing it every other week would help keep me on track as much as possible! You can read my full review on the program here & use code: XOLAURENMR for a discount. I’ve been posting my meals on stories & saving them to a Sakara highlight if you want to see more, too.
I ordered this diffuser in white for our living room a few weeks ago & love it so much I ordered it in terracotta for our bedroom. It also comes in grey & black. We love this oil for day time & this one for nighttime. Lavender from this essentials set is amazing any time to destress.
Crushing on this cute bath mat that is on sale even though I’m not sure I have any where to put it right now.
If you’ve been feeling anxious lately, be sure to check out my post about positive ways to deal with anxiety.
We celebrated our dog’s birthdays this weekend. If you have one & you need a new collar for them, these are the ones we have for our dogs. They come in several colors, can be personalized with their names, & have matching leashes.
I shared this black denim mini skirt (also comes in blue) recently in a try on. It’s on sale right now! I got an XS which is my true size & it was pretty fitted. I’d size up if between.
We’re still working away on decorating our back patio. We just got in these side tables in & I love them. They are a great price & are currently on sale! We are still waiting on this couch, these chairs, & these pillows to be delivered. I’ll probably work on ordering some more things this weekend. It’s supposed to be nice in Dallas so I’m sure we’ll be outside a lot, which makes me want to decorate the space more.
I’ve been craving some banana nut bread, so I am thinking I am going to make this recipe I shared forever ago on the blog. I may add in some chocolate chips just because, too.
I’ve been sharing that I started P.Volve this past week in addition to some of the other workouts I’ve been doing. I really like it so far! I think the Intermediate videos are more my speed. I ordered some equipment off Amazon to get started on the videos. Stay tuned, I’ll do a full review on them soon. In the mean time, you can see my reviews on other programs I do including Melissa Wood Health, Megan Roup x The Sculpt Society, & John Benton Model Fitness.
