Happy Friday! I hope you all had a great first week of May. It’s hard to believe we are already in a new month. I’ve been resting and recovering from my recent weight loss surgery, but I still wanted to share a few of my favorite things and life updates with you – I hope you enjoy!
What kind of foundation do you use?
Most recently, I’ve been using the Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint. I love to mix it with the liquid highlight for a nice glowy look. I have always loved foundation and makeup, but this is newer to me because I wanted something light and clean. I wear shade ST5 Bom Bom. If you’re not sure of your shade, try Sephora’s color-matching tool.
Did you build a custom home?
Our Texas house is a new build, but we didn’t make the selections for it. Doug Parr is the builder, and I really liked most of the designer’s choice. A few of my favorite things about our home – the stand-alone soaker tub, the white kitchen, ranch layout, and our acre of land. Let me know if you have more home questions. We learned a lot during the new build process, and I’m thankful we had a good friend that checked on progress every week for us because we were still in Colorado. He even uploaded video updates for us on YouTube!
How long have you been blogging?
I started my blog in 2017. I have a post all about how I took it from a side hustle to a full-time job.
Recent Amazon Buys
Amazon is the best – you can get so many helpful things, so quickly. Don’t you agree? Here’s a few of my recent purchases.
Toddler Booster Seat – I grabbed this portable booster seat for Owen, and I am so impressed so far. It folds up really nicely, and has a carrying strap. I love that it makes him closer to us at mealtimes, and that I can bring it when we go to a friend’s house or travel.
Birk Dupes – I’ve had these for a couple weeks now, and love them! They come in lots of colors too. Not only are they a great price, but they are super comfortable.
Cold Brew Coffee Maker – I love a good iced coffee, and thought this would be fun for the summer. You can use any type of coffee grounds, and it is less acidic than traditional coffee brewing. Right now, there is a $3 off coupon on Amazon – make sure you click the box to get it.
Soap Stand – This little cutie is where I put my essential oil diffuser. It makes soap and sponges look nicer by the sink, or would also work in a bathroom for perfume and makeup.
Recipe to try
You guys, I have loved broccoli cheese soup since I was a little girl. I remember ordering it at Mimi’s Cafe with a bowl of bread. I’ve re-done this classic soup to make a healthier, dairy-free version. With all the rainy, spring weather, this would be a great weeknight meal to warm you up.
Thank you so much for reading this week! Let me know what you would love to see in an upcoming Friday Favorites post.
