Friday Favorites | First of May

May 6, 2016

I thought Friday was NEVER going to get here! This has been one of the longest weeks! I’m a school nurse and this week was testing week, so kids typically aren’t coming in and out of my office like usual, so it made for a few long and slow days. And this weekend will be pretty busy with Mother’s Day celebrations. 

Between you and I, I’m surprised at how well I’m handling Mother’s Day this year. Last year was terrible, I had a miscarriage in April and I was depressed and shut down. To be honest, it’s all a blur now. But I’m so happy that this year I am at peace, it does make me a little sad, but I will be okay…alright, enough of that, let’s get on to this weeks favorites! 

Favorite Purchase // Last weekend I went shopping for a few Mother’s Day gifts, so a trip to Bath and Body Works was a must. They had their Buy 3 Get 3 Free Sale going on and one of the products I picked up for myself was the new Watermelon Lemonade Body Lotion, you guys…this smells SO good!! It’s not too fruity or too sweet…it’s nice and springy! I also picked up a body spray in their newest scent, Hello Beautiful…I’m not sure how I feel about it quite yet, it might be too floral-y for me…


Favorite Link // I like to keep myself pretty organized and when it comes to my blog and content, it’s no different. However, I have slacked a bit over the last couple of weeks, so I was happy to come across this post! 


Favorite Video // I’ll admit, I’m not much into skincare like I should be. But we all age, unfortunately, and having a good skincare regimen is key. I highly recommend you check out Anne’s newest video on the importance of exfoliating and SO much more. You guys…she has beautiful skin and is very well informed, after all, she is a physician! 


Favorite Workout // Friends…I’m still sticking to my workouts! I’ve officially been working out consistently for the past 3 weeks, usually 5-6 days a week. One of my favorite workouts this week has been this 15 minute full-body workout that’s perfect for any beginner! I just love PopSugar Fitness and Ana is amazing! 

Favorite Quote // Do whatever makes you happy!

That’s about it for this week, hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing weekend!
