Friday Chit Chat Vol. 1

Happy Friday! I am starting a new thing around here, where I am going to share a roundup post every Friday. Some of my favorite things, what I’m up to, things I think are interesting, etc.

Today is my birthday eve, and I suspect by the time you’re reading this I’ll be celebrating! I’m having a fun girl’s weekend and getting away for a while. This was the last full week of school and next week is a shortened week then we are off. I won’t lie, I’m excited for a little less structure in our days. I’ll be eating my words exactly one month from now! ?

What I’m trying:

I’ve been trying so many cool products lately. Things I bought AND things I’ve been sent. What does it matter though, right? My opinion doesn’t change either way. Some absolute stand outs have been the Explore Naturals deodorant in Sea Sage and the Clinique Even Better Refresh foundation. I have loved the original of that foundation forever, and I like this one even better (har har). I am wearing Cream Chamois 04 but it’s a touch too dark for me. I’ll give it a couple weeks and I know it’ll be the perfect match. That deodorant though…I’ve been into natural deodorants for a few years and it’s the best I’ve tried. Read my review if you’re curious what I’m all comparing it to. And it comes in so many scents that are crazy awesome, like Vanilla Clementine. For some reason Sea Sage is really speaking to me this week, and every time I catch a whiff of myself I’m feeling it.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention I just tried lash extensions for the first time. I’m in LOVE and I don’t think I could ever go back to regular mascara. I got them done at Graced Face Beauty Studio in Menomonee Falls. If you’re in the Milwaukee area, you have to give her a try!

What I’m meal planning:

This week’s favorites included flatbread taco pizza, lettuce wrapped burgers with air fryer potato wedges, and vegetarian gyros.

What I’m listening to:

I listened to Samson by Regina Spektor the other day and now my kids are obsessed with the song. I think it’s so funny when they ask for the “Wonder Bread song.” We’ve been listening to it on repeat.

What I’m wearing:

I am a sucker for everything on my FB ads, so when I saw the Upright GO on my feed, I took a peek. It’s meant for helping your posture and eliminating back, neck and shoulder pain as a result. I’m low key obsessed, and I’ve been wearing it every day. I’ll review it soon! Game changer!

What’s on my Amazon wish list:

My last couple purchases on there were veggie caps for my essential oils, swimsuits, and a waist trainer. I have NOTHING in my cart right now. I know, call Ripley’s.

What I’m looking forward to:

I love my birthday and I’m excited to have a really special day with some of my close friends. I plan to soak up the fun tomorrow and live it up.
