How’s everybody doing? This week was a complete blur. I woke up this morning and could not believe it was already Friday. I filmed some skincare/beauty IGTVs this week so I’m super excited to share those soon. I also opened it up for style questions on Instagram and you guys had so many good ones! Look out for that post on the blog next week. We have rain in the forecast which honestly, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it wouldn’t be terrible. We kind of need a crummy day to catch up on cleaning, organizing, laundry, etc. though I am realizing we will probably never catch up again, haha. Hope you guys have a great weekend.
If you’re looking for something to buy, try, read, share or pin, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the best of the week…
