Happy Friday friends! Believe it or not, this week has me already in the holiday spirit! I started planning holiday content and even convinced Michael to help me get the Christmas decorations out of the attic for a project I’m shooting over the weekend. HA If there was ever a year to break out the holiday cheer early, it’s this year. 😉

This week’s workouts …
Michael and I did a 30-minute strength training class via the Peloton app on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. And today (Friday) we’re doing a yoga class via the app!
Recently, we’ve ditched our long weekend walks for tennis! It’s been fun to have a new activity to do outside plus the weather has been fantastic here in Houston recently.

The navy can easily pass for black.

Nécessaire // I’ve been trying out the Body Essentials Kit (the Body Wash, Body Lotion, Body Exfoliator). Nécessaire is a clean brand that I’ve seen hyped all over social media.

Michael and I have been making a dinner reservation each weekend (on a patio) to have at least one outing on our calendar. This weekend, we’re checking out Squabble! It’s been on our list for a while. I’m excited to see what it’s all about!
I’ll be pulling out some of my Christmas decor and decking the halls (kind of) for a project shoot, watching SEC football, and … attending a Zoom bachelorette party! Oh 2020 …
My Favorite Things this Week
Beautycounter Jellies // Beautycounter launched all new fall beauty sets (and holiday sets) this week! I’ve been using the Jellies every single day. I keep a couple at my desk. The Jellies are like a mix between lip balm and lip gloss. Great for applying throughout the day. They aren’t sticky and add just the right amount of color and shine.
Amazon No Show Socks // I’ve never found a no-show sock I actually like until this one! I usually wear my Golden Goose sneakers without socks, but I saw these shared on Instagram and wanted to give them a shot. They’re so good! And in my opinion, the only no-show socks worth spending money on. They have a grip strip on the heel, which prevents them from sliding down. I’ve worn them multiple times this week, all day, and even on multiple walks around the neighborhood and to run errands – they never fell into my shoe!
Amazon Check Sweater // Wearing in the first photo in the post. Also seen wearing here. I have this sweater in “apricot” – it’s cream. It’s lightweight, but super soft and cozy. Definitely stay true to size in this one, maybe even size down one size, as it runs oversized. I went with a small and sill had to roll the sleeves. But I like how it fits throughout. Perfect with leggings and jeans!
Have a great weekend!
