Friday Favorites and Happenings

Happy Last Friday of March! I am looking forward to an easy weekend. The girls don't have dance class since some of the schools start Spring Break next week, so we don't have much planned. I am getting a manicure, we have another birthday dinner tonight and I am hoping to squeeze in a sushi night this weekend.

Onto Friday Favorites and Happenings.

ONE. Most bloggers are always talking about making time for yourself and self care. I am a huge proponent of it and definitely do little things for myself. Before having kids, I would get my nails done, get pedicures, get my hair done, get facials, massages, etc. I still do most of these, but not as often as I used to. But my sister and I have started getting our nails done together every two weeks. We get a shellac manicure, spend an hour catching up and our nails always look nice. Plus it isn't that much money and I take some of the money I make on my blog and treat myself.

TWO. It is bathing suit season and I am not looking forward to it. I bought that amazing Amazon swimsuit and I really love it. But I also need another suit. I really only have two others that fit me (before the Amazon one) and with Mexico coming up and Lake Tahoe season, I needed another. I have been patiently waiting for a Prana coupon as my MIL and SIL swear by their bathing suits. I love their yoga and lounge clothes, but never thought to try the swimsuits. But I bought one this week and I can't wait to try it on. If it fits, I will post it on my IG stories. But for now, check out what I bought. They are mother friendly and not revealing.

THREE. I had to take yesterday off and I was not happy about it. I don't have a ton of sick leave and I have my surgery coming up that I am using a good chunk of it on. But I woke up with a migraine and it was awful. I couldn't open my eyes without feeling like I was going to pass out or get sick. I knew I couldn't spend the day looking at a computer. What is even worse is I didn't get to go to the gym or eat my lunch from the day before because food just sounded awful. Guess I just needed a day of rest because I feel way better today.

FOUR. I know I have talked about this stuff here before, but I just got a new bottle of the Rosewater spray. I love this stuff. I tried it for the first time last Thanksgiving in Las Vegas and now I use it all the time. I use this stuff all the time when I travel. It gives your face hydration, makes it feel "alive" and just refreshed. After using it since December, I would definitely recommend it to everyone. I would also recommend the spot treatment too. That stuff zaps away zits.

FIVE. If you still haven't seen A Star is Born, you need to. I watched it again (off and on) yesterday and I just love this movie. I bought it when I got back from my last work trip and I never buy movies. So do yourself a favor and go watch it (or watch it again) this weekend.

  1. I think I'm the last person on Earth that hasn't seen A Star Is Born. I got a little bottle of that rosewater spray for Christmas and it's super refreshing! I need to remember to use it more. So glad you're feeling better today - migraines are the worst! Have a great weekend, friend!

    1. Thank you so much. Yes to that spray. It will make you feel better after a day outside, after a stressful day and just to refresh! Have a great weekend too!

  2. I second that the spot treatment zaps zits away! My facialist had recommended it to me last year and it was a game changer! I haven't seen Prana bathing suits before and will check them out now. Glad you are feeling better but sometimes things just hit us out of no where and we have to rest. Have a great weekend!

    1. I only saw them last year and I wanted them since then. I just pulled the trigger and got it. I hope it fits me well. I hate that I had to take a day, but I guess my body needed it. Have a great weekend too!

  4. I'm so sorry you had such a bad migraine. it's so funny because I LITERALLY am listening to a podcast (Annie F Downs podcast) & she said she's been out with a migraine for the past week & she's heard so many reach out to her about their migraines being so bad. WHAT IS HAPPENING? Isnt that strange ... does change of season effect it?
    Love you & your sister find that time to just sit & talk while getting nails done. That's really nice.

    1. I have no idea. I haven't had one that bad ever I don't think. It was awful.

      I love it too. Something we should all do a little more often!
