Friday Favorites 9.24

Happy Fall y’all! I’m cozied up in warm pajamas as I write today’s blog post. Last week, I started a new job and forgot how much work it is to balance work and life. I was going to bed before 9pm because my body was not used to waking up early and working all day. It was a long week but I had a lot of fun getting to know everyone and I’m looking forward to getting back to work. On Friday, we celebrated by going out to dinner at Thai Square and then I went to bed early. Is this what my thirties are going to look like?? It was so nice to sleep late on Saturday with no alarm. I threw on some comfy leggings and hung out with a friend I haven’t seen in over a year because of the pandemic. I feel like I blinked and we went from living in quarantine and the next minute things are kinda like back to normal? Sunday morning we were up early to take a train to New York City. Jake had to work out of the New York City office so I went with him for a few days. I shared what we did, where we stayed and a delicious restaurant recommendation in this blog post . I’m looking forward to a slow weekend at home. Hope you get out and enjoy this nice fall weather!

  • Only Murders in the Building on Hulu has me laughing out loud and the casting is genius!
  • Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is back and I’ve been texting my friends to talk about it while I watch. The drama this season is goood!
  • LuLa Rich on Netflix is a documentary show about the rise and fall of Lularoe. I started to watch it and then restarted it when Jake walked by because I knew he would love the drama.

Since I got back from our cruise, my hair has felt dry and brittle so I’ve been going longer between hair wash days and using Redken shampoo and conditioner to get my softer hair back.
But going back to work means that I have to style my hair every morning. For an easy blow out, I’ve been using my Conair hair dryer brush. It takes less than 5 minutes in the morning to turn my bedhead into a salon blowout.
I am constantly rotating my mascaras and this week I’ve been using Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.
Last week my Tarte Sex Kitten Eyeliner ran out so I picked up L’Oreal Paradise Eyeliner. It’s easy to use and love love love it!

Loving this new line of OPI nail polish called Nature Strong. It lasts a lot longer than my other nail polish and it’s vegan.

I stayed up way too late last night to read my book because I am almost finished reading it. When I was reading the first two books of the Outlander series, I read them within days and now that I’m back home from vacation I’m enjoying my time and making them last a while. I have less than 100 pages left of Voyager so I went to Barnes and Noble and bought the rest of the books in the series so I wouldn’t have to wait for them to arrive by mail anymore.

Finally did the thing and bought the Lululemon belt bag.
Bought way tooo much at the Harry Potter store in New York. Browse for yourself here.
Since I’m reading the Outlander series so fast, I picked up the rest of the books at Barnes and Noble.
I got a PR box of Pete’s Coffee Creme Brulee k-cups and they are the perfect afternoon sweet treat.

Finally got around to sharing pictures and what we did on our cruise last month on the blog.

Early mornings to myself.

Looking forward to a weekend at home.

This past week in New York was such a nice treat! I talked more about what we did in this blog post.

Starting to decorate our house for fall. All of our fall decor sat collecting dust on our dining room table for a few weeks but now pumpkins are being put around the house to get into the fall mood.

Still looking at pictures I took at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and planning our next trip back!

Almost finished with my book, Voyager – the third book in the Outlander series, and I’m eager to get started on the next one in the series.
