Weekend Links and Loves

TGIF, people! And, a happy, happy Friday it is. I’m feeling good, the sun is shining, and my sweet Finley is three years old! It’s hard to believe that our forever puppy finally is considered an adult in the dog world. You can place a good bet that I’ll be spoiling him rotten all day long. 😉 Since I have some celebrating to do, let’s keep this post short and sweet with some weekend links and loves.

Weekend Links and Loves

Favorite reads …

// Let’s all gain a little perspective on the Instagram madness from Amanda’s and Krista’s posts on the subject. I promise that you won’t feel annoyed or frustrated after reading what they both have to say.
// Great read and tips on how to train your brain to go positive instead of negative.
// 10 beach reads for summer 2017 according to The Every Girl – adding all of these to my list!

Recent purchases:

// This $10 drugstore brightening scrub is a game-changer in my skin care routine. Now I understand the hype – it’s so, so good.
// I found the perfect high-waist bikini bottom for summer. They fit true-to-size – I’m a medium. Now to find some cute tops …
// Never thought I would wear a jumpsuit, but I love this one. Comfortable and lightweight material perfect for spring and summer.
// An affordable dupe to my beloved Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation. Seriously – this is THE best drugstore foundation that I’ve ever used. I wear shade 102 for reference.

And, in case you missed things around here this week I opened up about my battle with negative body image (thank YOU for all the kind words and support – it means the world) and shared three beauty tips of wisdom from my mom.

Have a fantastic weekend, all! See you next week!

      The L’Oreal is so ridiculously on point with DWL, which is practically the only foundation I wear so that’s saying something!
