Friday Finds – September 1, 2017

I’m going to be real with you here: even though I can’t believe it’s already September, I have never been so happy for a week to be over finally. As you may have noticed, there was a serious lack of blog posts this week – the reason? My life has been insane lately. Unfortunately, my previous car finally died – ending a summer of never-ending trips to the mechanic. My husband and I were lucky to finally get a new car for me this week (at an incredible price, I might add) but it was definitely a little stressful. On top of that, I found myself needing to get a new phone, and dealing with a lengthy “to do” list of personal and professional projects… so I may be the happiest person to finally have Friday here!

To Buy:


Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush (link)

I rarely use blush or bronzer but the colors that this product comes in look gorgeous!


Camo Fleece Sweatshirt (link)

Because camo has been a huge trend lately – and this comfy sweatshirt has pockets.


Agate Cheese Board (link)

Don’t get me wrong, I love our marble cheeseboard, but I am seriously considering buying this just for the sheer beauty of it.


Ombre Glitter Phone Case (link)

Half the fun of getting a new phone is finding a new case. This one is pink ombre glitter – like seriously, what else would I need?


Immune System Boosting Tea (link)

I haven’t tried this brand yet but I always manage to catch a cold around this time of year. This immune system boosting tea sounds rather promising.

To Save Money:



All the announcements are still coming in but here are my favorites so far.


Homesick Candles (link)

10% off with promo code LAB10RDAY. They’ve added so many new candles too!


Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty (link)

Starts on Sunday and I’m already marking my calendar with some of these deals!

The RealReal (link)

p.s. make sure you’re following me on Instagram – I’ll be posting any new deals as they come up!

To Watch:


“The Big Sick” on Amazon

Disclaimer: from what I’m reading, you do have to pay for this – but this was the movie that I wanted to see so badly this summer and schedules got in the way. It will be available on September 5th.


“The Wizard of Lies” on HBO

We recently got HBO and I am so pumped to see this was available. As I’ve mentioned before, I love true crime-type movies and I don’t think you can go wrong with Robert DeNiro starring as Bernie Madoff.
