Friday Favorites

We are counting down the days to summer over here! This weekend, A has a Jesse Owens project he’s working on, J has multiple baseball games (that might get rained out), and I’ve got a short break before my Maymester class starts, and then after a quick three weeks it will really be summer! We are ready for a beach vacation, sleeping in, and lazy days! I’ve also got a few plans up my sleeve for avoiding the summer slump with the boys and I’m excited to share those soon! Meanwhile, here are some of my favorites from the week!

On being decisive. Which I am. But it’s good to have some reminders.

The skirt steak fajitas we had for Wednesday night dinner.

Skincare in your forties, because yes, I’m headed in that direction.

Salad that has me dreaming about summer dinners.

The striped pants and striped bikini top I have on my list from the Target Vineyard Vines.

You’re fooling yourself about the importance of sleep (unless you think it’s important….then you’re not).

Business connected Ted Talks that I’m making my way through for examples for one of my fall courses.

And finally, here are my actual Sephora purchases with my VIB discount:

 

I mainly went with basics for this round and decided to test out a new setting powder instead of the Laura Mercier powder I have been using. Especially since it’s summer, I tend to focus on skin repair after wearing make-up almost every day during the fall and spring semesters (and yes, as a college teacher, I live in the world of semesters). The Sephora sale continues for a few more days, so happy shopping!
