Friday Favorites 03.23.2018

Happy Friday to all my readers!!

It’s Friday so that means I’m linking up with Andrea, Narci, and Erika.  

It was hard going back to work this week after spring break. But, I have managed to get back into the swing of things! Without further ado, here are some of my favorites that I have rounded up for you this week!

We entered our first day of spring this week! Yippee!! I thought I would share a neat tradition that my grandfather has been doing for many years. On each spring and autumn equinox, he will balance eggs! It’s an urban legend that you can balance your eggs when the earth’s poles neither point toward or away from the sun. Myth or not, he’s been a faithful egg balancer for as long as I can remember. Here’s a picture of his egg setup this year:

Summer is rapidly approaching and with that comes the realization that I desperately am in need of a tan. When I have a few moments to spare away from my fully licker-licensed dogs, I use this daily moisturizer which gradually increases your color. I’ve always been hesitant of self-tanners thinking I’ll turn out like a Jersey Shore cast member or an Oompa Loompa. With this daily moisturizer, I haven’t experienced issues with streaking or orange coloring. I just need a good natural glow! 

Something I forget to share from last week! A new Ross store opened up near my parents home. I found a cute top ($12.99) and a pair of shoes ($14.99).

Now you could wear this top as a dress but I would never be able to bend over…so top it is! I would love some recommendations for where to purchase white jeans. I’m feeling brave this year to invest in a pair. As long as I’m nowhere near spaghetti, grape juice, or guacamole, I should be in the clear. At least I think so.

Does anyone have a signature Bath and Body Works scent? Mine have rotated throughout the years. I really love the body sprays and will stock up when they are about three dollars per bottle (day after Christmas!). I love Mad About You (which has retired apparently…boo!), A Thousand Wishes, and Country Chic.

In other news, our guest bedroom is soooo close to being finished! I bought this floral pillow on clearance (another successful Kohl’s coupon stack up!) to compliment the bedding I purchased. Isn’t it adorable? I’m sure Shay’s friends will especially appreciate it when they come to visit 🙂

 

Lastly, I’ve been working with my new camera. Who would have thought there are so many settings to learn?! I was proud of this picture that I took of Stetson:

Well that about wraps it up for another round of Friday Favorites! Thank you for tuning in!

Going for the Glow,

Shan

  • Those flats are so cute! I love flats that have a little ankle strap like that.

    Balancing an egg on the spring equinox is something I have not heard before. That’s a fun little tradition to have!

  • I love that purple dress and sandals. So cute. I need to start using my jergens as well since I have Mexico in a month. That is sooo cool that your grandpa does that. I can’t wait to see the pictures when you guys do that again this weekend.

  • That Jergens lotion is the best! I love using that stuff to help keep my self tan or spray tan last a little bit longer. And those flats are super cute! They just opened a Ross here a few weeks ago & I stopped in there but the entire store was practically cleaned out! The shelves were SO bare which was really surprising! I might give it another shot once they’ve been open for awhile… maybe they will actually have products!

    • Thanks! It’s been pretty reliable for me so far! Ross can be really hit or miss for me. Maybe figure out what days they receive shipments and plan shopping trips around that 🙂
