Hi friends! Starting Friday off with a look at five of my top favorites things this week! Nothing fancy here- just 5 recommendations of products, books, and whatever else comes along that I want to share with y’all because friends share awesome stuff with other friends, right?!

. . . . . . . . . .

This nail polish. It’s by Essie and it’s the perfect neutral shade. It doesn’t wash me out like most neutral tones do and it has an extra dose of femininity with it’s mauve undertone. I have never used an entire bottle of nail polish before, but this one is close to empty! It’s my go to!

My custom Trouvaille earrings. I met Kirsten through one of my 2019 brides and I loved her talent in jewelry making. She has a ton of variety in styles and colors, but I reached out to her with a specific color scheme in mind and she crafted a beautiful pair of custom earrings that are my go to for most outings! They are so fun and jazz up any outfit!

This eye primer. I would never have actually bought eye primer, but this was included in a free gift from Ulta for a different purchase. I tried it one day just to test it out before certainly tossing it in the trash for taking up space, but I actually loved it! It’s neutral and yet adds just enough of a shimmer to brighten up my eyes even on the most sleepy mornings! I also put a little dab at the inner corners of my eyes when I really need some extra help to brighten up my look!

These workout pants. It took me a few winter weeks of running in normal workout pants before finally deciding I was tired of my legs freezing in the cool Virginia temps. These pants are lined with fleece on the inside, but also are still moisture wicking so they are the perfect fit for long runs on early January mornings! I also really love the sets of pockets on each side! In having both the green and black, I found that the colors are accurately shown online and they run true to size!

These earbuds. I have zero interest in spending hundreds of dollars on earbuds and I’ve been through more than I can recall trying to find the perfect set. These are the winners for sure. The price is great, the sound is even better, they are super comfy, and they even stay put in my ears through a 6 mile run!

. . . . . . . . . .

Happy friday, yall! Hope you enjoyed this! Shoot me a message if you have any questions/comments about the items that I shared today and I’ll see you again next week with more Friday faves!
