It’s almost America’s birthday! We originally had plans to go to the river in Arkansas with Charles’s dad & some of his family this weekend. However, if you’ve seen my stories then you know that my Dad is currently in the ICU fighting COVID. We thought it would be best for us to stay put this weekend. For all of you who have prayed & reached out– thank you so very much. I can’t tell you how appreciative I am. You all are the best, most supportive community & I am so thankful for you.
On a positive note, our renovation is justttt shy of finished (just a few little touch ups or lingering small things) so we will be spending the weekend enjoying our home being somewhat back in order. We also get our new big sectional for the room delivered this weekend! Since it’s Friday, that means it’s time for another edition of The Weekly Lo Down. This one is special, since 4th of July is tomorrow, because there are SO many good weekend sales & deals happening this weekend. I’m rounding everything up for you all below!
The Weekly Lo Down
I can’t stop thinking about this black & rattan tray. I don’t know where it would go, but I can always figure that out later, right? Also, from the same surprisingly amazing home section on this retailer’s site I love: this face pot & this candle in the coolest lips holder.
I talked about this hair finisher on stories earlier this week, but I wanted to share here for you all, too ICYMI. It’s great to tame those pesky flyaways, especially when wearing your hair back or up!
I went with my best friend to look at wedding bands for her & got my ring cleaned while I was at the store where Charles designed my engagement ring. It was SO dirty. I bought this little jewelry cleaner off Amazon (had the best reviews) so I can keep it clean!
You can stock up on the mascara I just bought & have been wearing this week while it’s on sale. Get 3 & save over $20 from the individual price!
Charles ordered us a huge inflatable pool for the backyard. Pretty funny, but will be perfect for when we want to lay out & get a little color without having to drive across town to a friend or family member’s house who has a pool.
I’ve been loving cute hair accessories for when I wear my hair back (which is A LOT in the hot Texas summer). These gold bobby pins are so fun. I also love this hair scarf & this scrunchie set! Also, speaking of hair, the towel headband I use when I wash my face is back in stock in leopard & a cute tie dye option.
I’ve seen these sunnies floating around the ‘gram so I decided to pull the trigger. They are under $15 & come in a few colors. I ordered them in white & black!
I did a little mini Sephora haul of some new things I got in this week on stories. If you missed it, you can check it out HERE.

This week I want to share the amazing COVID-19 Frontline Health Worker Fund. Health workers need training, equipment, & support now, not later. This fund was created to provide health workers what they urgently need to fight this global pandemic & to continue providing essential services for families & communities. IntraHealth is innovating quickly to make sure health workers needs are met, but they need help. The COVID-19 Frontline Health Worker Fund gives us the flexibility to respond to health workers’ needs immediately, as they hear about them from their projects in the 27 countries where they work. Consider donating here today!
