Happy Friday! Anybody else out there feeling like this? Ugh! Make them stop fighting about EVERYTHING!
While my children fighting isn't a favorite, I do have a random assortment of treasures for you today!
1) Xhilaration dress
I am loving the colors and patterns in the new Xhilaration dress line! I picked up THIS dress with the Cartwheel deal, plus my Red Card savings, and my Cartwheel Perks coupon, so I ended up getting it for $8 instead of $25! I was a little nervous since it is considered a body-con dress, but I sized up to give me some wiggle room (and because I always worry about the dryer!), and I love it! I can wear it now and in the fall. It can easily be belted or worn under a denim jacket.
2) Merona heels
Shelly at The Queen In Between has been raving about Target's shoes all season! I tried THESE on in the store, and they are currently on sale for $25. They're in my cart - should I pull the trigger? If you like them too, I'd suggest sizing a half size down.
3) Blue nail polish
I hopped on the blogger bandwagon and picked up a new blue nail polish. If you've read here long, then you know that I am not one to spend $10 on a bottle of nail polish. I love Sally Hansen Insta Dri, but I went with Sinful Colors and picked up Sail La Vie for just $2! I have always had success with Sinful, and I feel like they offer a wider range of colors than Sally Hansen. You can find it at Target, Walgreens, or your local grocery store.
4) Sunscreen pill
Have you heard of Heliocare? I went in for my annual skin check, and since I've had melanoma in the past, my dermatologist recommended that I start taking Heliocare. Apparently it's an over the counter supplement that is made of a special fern plant, and it is supposed to help give you added protection against the sun. My doctor reminded me that it is not in place of sunscreen but can be helpful for people who have a history of melanoma. I'm torn because it seems a little expensive and has mixed reviews, but at the same time, my doctor isn't making any commission since I'd have to buy it at Walgreens or on Amazon, so I feel like she was encouraging me to take it to truly help me. Do you have experience with Heliocare or know anyone who has used it?
5) Spread the love
Don't these look awesome? Find the recipe HERE!
I was super proud of Ari the other day. A few Christmases ago, we took appetizers and cookies to our local fire house. Ari randomly asked when we could take treats back to the firemen. I thought it was a great idea, and with the 4th of July coming up, it's the perfect time to treat some of the men and women who help keep our community safe, especially during the sometimes hazardous holiday. We're going to bake on Monday to drop off some fresh treats to the guys on call, and I encourage you to stop by your local firehouse with a plate or two to say thanks.
In case you missed any of this week's posts:
It's been a busy week, and I'm looking forward to doing a whole lot of nothing this weekend! I hope you have a safe and fun weekend ahead of you, and I'll see you back here on Monday for a recap. See you soon!
