Friday Favorites and Happenings

Happy Friday all! We are officially into Fall and I am very excited about all the cozy clothes I SHOULD be wearing. But we are still sitting in the mid 80s here, so that will have to wait. Until then, we are soaking up all the warmth and sunshine that Summer brings.

Onto Friday favorites and happenings.

ONE. I once again drank the blogger Koolaid (stole that saying from Lindsay) and bought the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo. I have used so many dry shampoos over the years. When I didn't use it often, I went with Not Your Mother's. It is cheap, smells fine and does a decent job. Now that I am using dry shampoo more often, I needed something better. I used to use Bumble and Bumble, but I didn't go to Sephora to buy it, so I opted to try out the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo.

So far I really like it. Just make sure you read the directions and don't just spray it in and move on. You need to spray 6 to 10 inches away from your scalp, wait 30 seconds, then rub it into the roots. You may have stuff that falls out, but basically it is just the dry shampoo doing its job. It supposedly cleans your hair, drys the sweat and oil, volumizes and gives your hair a cleaner look. 

Once I used it for a few days, I fell in love.

TWO. I am trying to not buy much right now, BUT when my favorite pj place launches their Fall line of pjs, I had to grab a pair of the jam pants set. I have two dresses/nightgowns from Lates by Kate, but have never been able to get a pair of the pant sets. I bought one yesterday when they launched their new line and I got the red and white polka dots ones. I figured these are perfect for the Winter/Christmas season (hello Christmas morning photos) and something I can wear while working from home because let's be honest, some days we never get out of our pjs.

These pjs are soft as butter, comfy, stretchy and amazing.

THREE. Another item that I bought this week (2 of them) was for housewarming parties that we have coming up. I got my guggle jug when I was in Avalon, New Jersey. We went to our cousins (my cousin-in-law) wedding there when I was about 6 months pregnant with the girls. In Stone Harbor, they had the cutest shop and we found these. They had an area where you could test them out and they make a glug glug noise when you pour the water out.

Ours has been the topic of conversation so many times and everyone always wants one. It is the perfect gift for a wedding or house warming. Plus how cute are they? You want to make sure you get a real one. This one on Amazon is from the same company that mine is (even though mine was sold through a store front).

I have the green in XL (10 inches).

FOUR. Weekly funnies.


This is petty, but it does feel good seeing how messed up they are after 15 years.

It's not as bad as Al, but sometimes flannels just don't work with my body type.

Dying over here.

Sorry Mom.

Have a great weekend. I am linking up with A Little Bit of Everything and Becky.

  2. Great info on the dry shampoo. My favorite so far is Batiste, but I haven't use Living Proof! Those jammies look amazing! I've been on the hunt for a new pair. That last funny is 100% me.

    1. I don't think I have ever used Batiste either. Jammies are one thing that I have a hard time buying and finding for some reason. Have a great weekend!

  3. I'm so picky about pjs so I need to check those out. I can only sleep in shorts and tanks, though, so I'll have to see if that brand has anything like what I'm looking for. Also, that last meme... BILLY!!
    And YES! I'm so not a morning person. Haha.

    1. They do have shorts and tanks, but not right now. They have those in the Summer. They do have the dresses/nightgowns which are amazing. I wear those all the time and I was only a shirt and shorts person too. Yes, I forgot his name was Billy. We are watching Hocus Pocus this weekend!

  6. Unsubscribe! Yup! Haha! And Al!!!!! That is how I feel in flannel. I dont quite pull it off. Those PJs are totally cute. I love that you are making them Christmasy but they can be worn all year too. Living Proof is the only dry shampoo I will use. I have tried at least 15 and it is the only one that legit works the best.

    1. That is why I got them. They have kids dresses/pjs and I am going to get my girls a pair to match me for the holidays. Living Proof has been amazing.

  8. Those jammies are ADORABLE!! So funny that you share those, because I just decided I was going to update my sleepwear. Right now I have way too many sweats and they aren't that cute. I want more nightgowns and things like this. Thanks for sharing!! I hope you guys enjoy your weekend; soak up those warm temps. Winter will be here before we know it.
