Happy Friday! I hope you had a nice week! My week was pretty great, and not for any specific reason, mostly because I didn’t feel like I was in a quarantine/pandemic induced funk this week. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Michael and I are heading out of town this weekend to my hometown – Shreveport. I’m so excited for a change of scenery for a few days! Whatever this week brought you, hopefully you’re excited that today’s Friday and looking forward to a relaxing weekend ahead.

This Week’s Blog Posts

Maelove Vitamin C Serum vs. Beautycounter All Bright C Serum // The intrigue around vitamin c in skincare products is one of the most frequently asked about topics in my DMs. I enjoyed putting this post together explaining what exactly the benefits are of using a vitamin c serum in your skincare routine and comparing two vitamin c serum products that I’ve been using over the past year. Check out the post if you haven’t already!

12 Things I’m Packing for the Beach // I’m really looking forward to my family’s upcoming annual beach trip and crossing my fingers it’s still going to happen. I rounded up 12 items I’m planning on packing! All of the items are perfect for any summer getaway, even if the getaway is your own backyard!

Weekly Workouts

This week’s workouts …

For workouts this week, I did at-home Orangetheory on Monday and Wednesday, and yoga via this YouTube channel on Thursday. Michael’s been doing yoga classes through Adriene’s YouTube channel for a few weeks so I decided to check it out this week. I really enjoyed it! Both Orangetheory and yoga with Adriene are free!

I’m planning on getting in a long walk in Shreveport today and on Saturday too!

Weekend Plans

Like I mentioned, Michael and I are heading to Shreveport today to spend the weekend with my family. I’m looking forward to hanging out on the bayou and by the pool for the next few days. I’m beyond excited for a change of scenery!

My Favorite Things this Week

Easy Amazon Dress // I have this dress in two colors – navy and black. I’ve had both for a couple of years. They’re great for summertime and fall! Lightweight enough for summer, and I add a suede jacket and OTK boots for fall. Seen wearing here. Styled for fall here and here. The dress is a steal at only $28.

Olive & June Nail Polish + Polish Remover // Olive & June is a new-to-me clean nail care brand. Their polishes are free from harmful chemicals and their polish remover is acetone free. I ordered a few polishes and the polish remover a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been loving the polish and the remover is AMAZING! Highly recommend!

Beautycounter Daily Sheer Defense SPF // Beautycounter launched a new everyday, face specific sunscreen! I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now, and I’m really loving it! It’s lightweight, goes on clear, and not greasy at all. Perfect for applying after morning skincare and before makeup!

Have a nice weekend!
