friday favorites

Another week has flown by, I cannot believe it is already the end of July.  I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend, as it will be the last quiet weekend for the next month.  Here are the things that I am loving this week.

1.  This is one of Essie's latest colors, Bikini So Teeny.  Part blue, part lavender with loads of shimmer, it is such a flattering color and compliments your summer tan.


2. There are very few beauty products that are hyped, which I am willing to try.  This product on the other hand is one that I did splurge on and I am amazed by the results.  It is a treatment lotion that acts more like a toner and is perfect for balancing sensitive-reactive skin (like mine.)


3. Do you know who Amanda Judge is? If not, you need to visit her site!  She is one talented lady who is behind the bridal accessories line Untamed Petals.  She just recently launched a bridesmaid and party dress line and this beauty is from her latest collection.  The best part-all of her dresses are under $100!


4. I received this herb mill as a gift last year and I use it all the time.  It is simple in design, but works wonders on finely chopping herbs without the mess and hassle of doing it by hand.


5. I love this k.slademade clutch.  I just recently stumbled upon this amazing designer earlier this spring. I love her use of bright bold hues fused with classic and simplistic design.


6. This is the smaller version of the bubble necklace available through J.CREW factory (which you can now shop online if you do not live near a factory location.)  This is an iconic necklace that I see everywhere and it does not seem to matter who is wearing it or how, it adds instant style to any outfit.  I love this bright, lemon color.


7. This Capri Olive & Lemonwood reed diffuser freshens any room and is in a beautiful glass bottle.  I love the way it smells, it is the perfect summer scent, fresh and light with a touch of citrus.

I hope you enjoy your weekend and spend time doing your favorite summer activities!
