Happy Friday! We are currently en route to the beach, but I figured I’d check in one last time before we arrive. I mean, my child won’t let me sing on road trips anymore so what else am I going to do in the car?
Since it’s the end of the week, it means it’s time for “Friday Favorites”. Let’s just get straight to business: my favorite things right now are cheap. No shame here.
I mentioned the other day that I’m now obsessed with a website called thredUP. I received my first order this week and I was blown away. I literally could not tell that any of the clothes were worn even once, and I got them for a steal. I can now definitely say I’ll be ordering again. In fact, I found a pair of Diane von Furstenberg Wedges marked down to 80 bucks. I think I might have to snag them. They are exactly like this pair but beige. Should I do it? Just say yes.
Our trip this weekend is 100% due to finding a deal on VRBO, or Vacation Rentals By Owner. We got a one bedroom oceanfront condo for a third of the price of our favorite hotel’s basic room package. If you’ve never planned a trip on there, I highly suggest it! It’s a little more “trouble” than booking a typical hotel room, but you get more for your money overall.
I don’t always plan on running or working out at the beach, but this weekend I really don’t have a choice. Luckily I end up enjoying it every single time I get out there. I need to get at least 9 miles in sometime over the course of the trip, so hold me to it! I’m serious. Call me out if you see me skipping it.
I’ve been really getting into doing my nails lately. I know, I’m just finally becoming a girl. Anyway, I’m starting to think I might want to shop around for a gel polish system. I found some really expensive ones and some really cheap ones. This system is in the middle price-wise, so I’m leaning toward going that route. Do any of y’all own anything like this? If so, are they worth purchasing? I feel like all I do is crowdsource right now, but I just have so many questions. 😉
I’ve confessed my love for Skyscapes in the past, but I found this grey pair at the outlets in Orlando. I like that they go with almost anything. Well, almost anything I own. I don’t throw on cocktail dresses very often, y’all. I got them for about half price, which also makes me very happy. Apparently not everyone loves them as much as I do? I don’t care. They are like walking on freaking air.
This one is totally an honorable mention. I have two things to say about this video: 1.) yes, I make my four-year-olds do this almost every single day and 2.) yes, I do it with them because I’m a hot mess. But, seriously, you cannot be in a bad mood while trying to do all of these sweet moves. Oh, and doesn’t he look like he’s wearing grey Skyscapes? I just noticed that for the first time and now I can’t unsee it. This is my future.
Question: What was your best “deal” recently? I’m always on the hunt for a good one!
