Friday Favorites-1.12.23

It’s FRIDAY! The first Friday FAVES of the year! Each Friday Andrea and I join forces to host this little Friday Favorites link-up! We invite you to join us by grabbing our graphic, linking to us, and then adding your blog to the link-up at the bottom of the post. We’d love to have you this year. 🙂

First up, if you saw my post yesterday then a big goal for me is to SLOW DOWN this year! I tend to rush through my days and look up at bed time. NOT happening in 2024. Over the break, Nixon had baseball practice a couple times and I hit up the track while he was practicing. Check out the leaf I noticed because I was taking it all in. :). A FAVORITE little piece of my day.


This is a secret FAVORITE. :). When my family was in town, Ebby Lee was sharing our bathroom just to stay out of everyone else’s way. She brought this body wash in our shower {AND SHE FORGOT it’s in there}. I’ve been using it ever since and it smells SO GOOD! I’m not a fan of this same fragrance in that spray form, but the body wash is amazing! {Don’t worry-I’m gonna place an order to replace hers that I’m now using.}. It’d make a perfect little girlfriend gift!


I promise to share a little book review-possibly every other month. I’m not gonna share my thoughts on this book quite yet {but I wouldn’t tell you to rush out and get this book either!}. The FAVORITE part of this is the ladies in my family are all doing a book club where we read one book a month {a different person chooses each month} and then we group text and possibly Face Time chat to discuss. I’m super excited to chat with them every month! We’re kicking off January soon!

Sidenote, can you spy my bandaid in the pic above? Well, if you’re someone who gets crazy dry fingers in the winter and often need a bandage, look no further. Did you know they have bandaids FOR FINGERS?! I found them when I was shopping online for groceries and well, there’s no turning back now. I’ll always have these on hand!


A new FAVORITE item is this fleece. I’m in the small and it fits perfectly! I like neutral colors but I really love color-especially during the winter months. This pullover comes in SO MANY different color combos, can be worn with leggings {I actually wore this on a walk with my running shoes and then switched the shoes out, added a little make-up, and fixed my hair} or jeans, and is so soft and cozy.


I was talking to a friend about make-up the other day and she recommended this Patrick Ta blush.

It comes with both a cream and a powder option. And friends, it’s a new FAVORITE! I haven’t even tried the cream because I’m scared-ha! But I absolutely love the powder option. The powder is really pigmented so a little goes a long way.

I purchased, “She’s That Girl” and am a FAN!


This bright sweater arrived in the mail earlier this week. I’m a fan of color all year long but especially in the winter months. I’m wearing the small and think it’s perfect. I added some sneakers and headed to a cheer meeting after school pick up. Bright colors + winter = FAVORITE!


Okay, friends! We have some FUN plans to watch our FAVORITE guy out on the field this weekend. Happy Friday! See you back here on Monday!

    Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on that books! And I highly recommend trying cream blush–it’s such a game changer and it really does stay on so much longer than powder blush! I’ve been using cream for almost two years and I’ll never go back to powder.

      Hi Sarah! Hope you’re doing great! My friend just texted me this morning after reading that she puts a little cream over the powder! I’m trying that today! So happy to hear you love the cream!
