Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! I’m super excited for the long weekend, even though my 4th of July is shaping up to be pretty low-key. What about you? Are you heading to a family BBQ, or taking in a spectacular fireworks show? Or perhaps whipping up a batch of patriotic cocktails? Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s memorable and fun! Before you jet off on your weekend adventures, please enjoy a few of my favorite links from this week.

Why travel makes you a better person, summer skincare, how to throw a pity party, and more!

1. It’s been way too long since I went on a big trip, and I’m getting a little wanderlusty. I want to make travel more of a priority, and not just because it makes you a better person. (Hand Luggage Only)

2. Apparently 90% of the signs of aging are due to sun exposure. Yikes! Unless you’d rather spend the rest of your days in an underground bunker, here are a few simple ways to protect your skin this summer. (Glitter Guide)

3. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by your to-do list but are short on time, knock out some of these deeply satisfying organizational tasks that can be completed in five minutes or less. (Camille Styles)

4. The next time you have a truly terrible week, why not lean into it and throw yourself a pity party? As Lorelai Gilmore taught us, sometimes you just need to wallow! (Oh Happy Day)

5. Saving money is hard, guys. But with a little self-discipline, these tricks will make it easier. (Career Girl Daily)

In other news, I want to let you guys know that I may not be posting as frequently for a bit. Writing three posts a week is always a challenge, but it’s especially tough at this time of year, and what I really need is to get out and enjoy the sunshine instead of sitting in front of my computer all weekend. Can anyone relate? Anyway, I’ll still be here – just not posting quite as religiously as usual!

Have a fabulous weekend, and Happy 4th of July to our American readers!

  1. Saving money is my favorite thing to do. And I agree with the article, bringing lunch to work saves so much money.. I did it for a year and I was able to buy a big ticketed item I wanted. My 4th was so laid back but it was definitely enjoyable. Hope you had an amazing 4th girls.

    • Thanks Kia, you too! I was always so horrible about bringing my lunch to work, but now that I mostly work from home, it’s a lot easier to whip something up šŸ™‚

  2. The wanderlust must be infectious, I have really been struggling not to grab my passport and run to the airport these last few weeks. What is your next dream destination?

    • It’s so hard to pick! I really want to visit Barcelona, but I also just finished a book written by a safari guide, so now I’m daydreaming about going on an African safari (which is so expensive it will probably be a few more decades before I can actually go…)

      • Oh Barcelona is so lovely! Amazing architecture: every walk is a new discovery. Awesome food as well šŸ™‚
        I agree, Africa sounds lovely but is just so expensive.
