Friday Favorites


Friday, January 13, 2017

It's Friday and we have another long weekend ahead. Cue the happy dance.

I think we might have a break in rain/snow/sleet for a couple days and I am hoping we can get out for a few walks or just get out. The girls were so cooped up last weekend, it was rough on everyone.

But let's get down to Friday Favorites and Happenings.

ONE. My best friend is coming into town tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited. I am hoping to be healed enough to go out with her and others tomorrow night, but time will tell. Otherwise, we will have to meet up for brunch or happy hour. I am just too excited to see her. She is the one we were supposed to visit in Oklahoma back in October before our flight got cancelled. It is also her birthday weekend!!!

TWO. So I got a lot of interest in questions on chemical peels. While I have only experienced a few of them, I am a believer in them. When I get a facial and chemical peel, my esthetician puts a solution on my face. (Each time is a different concentrate. And no he does not get close to my eyes, so you don't have to worry about them burning your eyes.) He uses either a cotton round or sponge and applies it all over my face. He lets it sit there for about 2 to 3 minutes and then he carefully wipes it all off and then uses a hot towel to get the rest of it off. He then usually puts on a masque and lets that sit there for 10 minutes. He always finishes up with a heavy moisturizer and tells me to keep my face moisturized for several days.

Your skin may peel or flake a bit, but that is part of the natural process. No you shouldn't look like Samantha did in Sex and the City.

Chemical peels help lighten sun damaged skin, wrinkles, reduce fine lines, treat acne and help make your skin look fresh and glowy.

THREE. I am wanting to buy all the cozy sweaters I can get my hands on. I bought one this week from Pearl and Monroe, the lace up tan sweater. And I have had my eye on three different ones on Mindy Mae's Market, but they are ALL sold out in my size. I did snag a long sleeve from there though. I blame it on the snow, but really, I just love being all cozy. I usually change into my cozy lounge pants and a sweater every evening when we get home. Home body much.

So I am searching for cozy sweaters. Send me the links to your favorites.

FOUR. The snow gods must have heard me because we got out of work early yesterday. It may have only been an hour and a half early, but it makes the drive home so much easier.

FIVE. Thank you all for your concern on my surgery. It wasn't a big surgery and I am healing and I hope to talk about it in the near future, but know that I am ok.

I am linking up with April, A Little Bit of Everything, Karli, Meet @ the Barre and Cup of Tea.

  7. I must have missed that you had surgery? I need to go back and read. I hope you're doing well and everything is OK! Thanks for sharing about chemical peels, I think I need to look into them. My face has so much sun damage from my teens/20's where I thought were NO sunscreen was a grand idea, and there are so many wrinkles forming :(

  8. I was going to respond to your email about the chemical peel but didn't want to be a pain lol. I was wondering about the Samantha face too which was my biggest concern. I hope you are feeling back to your self soon and can enjoy some time with your friend. Loving that sweater you found! Beautifully Candid

  9. Happy Friday! I have that lace up sweater, you are going to LOVE IT! I want to live in it. Love hearing your perspective on a peel. I don't feel like I'm quite there yet, but I'm sure the day is closer than I would like it to be that I could use a good peel. I hope you have a wonderful weekend with your BFF, mimosas included ;-)

  16. I've always been interested in a chemical peel, but when I ask my dermatologist always suggests another procedure.

    1. I would ask an estethician for their thoughts on it. I usually leave that out of my dermatologist appointment.
