Hi friends, and a very Happy Friday!
I hope you had a great week and are gearing up for a weekend full of fun, relaxing, or a little bit of both. (<- those are always my fave!) Scott and I have what is shaping up to be a great one on deck. We have dinner plans with friends tonight, I have a bridal shower tomorrow, and then we are heading over to Ann Arbor for a special movie night at The Big House!
In an effort to help today go by a little faster, let’s talk about some of the highlights from the week with Friday Favorites. I enjoy seeing what you have been loving too, so please feel free to play along and join in on the comments section and link-up at the bottom!
Friday Favorites #92: Week of 6/5
• Converse slip-ons
I just love Converse sneakers. I own a few pairs of them now, and I inherited the latest from a dear friend of mine on our last trip to New York.
These Chuck Taylor Shoreline slip-ons had never been worn, and proved to be a bit small for her foot, so I happily took her up on the offer to find them a nice home. They require a no-show type of sock, if any, and I’ve been loving them for over a month.
(you can find this color at Nordstrom)
Aren’t they adorable? Thanks so much for the awesome kicks, Lauren. You’re the best! xo
• Firehouse subs
“Welcome to Firehouse!” was a phrase I got to know all too well in high school. There was a Firehouse Subs located right across from my high school, so I would often frequent their store on senior lunches. (Are those still a thing?)
Scott and I recently found a Firehouse in our neck of the woods, so we stopped to give it a try this week. I usually order a turkey sub, but I was craving a Philly cheese steak something serious. That happens every now and then.
I ordered a regular sized steak & cheese sub on wheat and enjoyed every single bite with a smile on my face. I don’t eat red meat all that often, but when I do… it’s usually some kind of steak and cheese combo.
• Lindt gourmet chocolate truffles
My friend Nichole brought this gold box of goodies over to us this week. I don’t know what we did to deserve them, but I’m not asking, either. Have you ever tried Lindt chocolates?
We got this delightful little gold box of goodies on Wednesday, and they didn’t stand a chance past yesterday.
They were all (yes, I tried every flavor) so delicious! Thanks so much, Nichole!
• eyebrow threading
Do any of you get your eyebrows threaded?
Ever since my sophomore year in college, I’ve probably gotten my eyebrows waxed a total of ten times. If you do the math, that’s what… maybe a time or two a year? Since I can’t really trust myself with my own brow shape (seriously… I’m horrible), I have been seeking out places to get my eyebrows threaded over the past ten years!
I first started trying threading in Tampa, and I got a lot of my friends hooked on it when I moved back to Orlando. If you haven’t tried it before, threading can remove short lines of hair at a time, as opposed to single hairs pulled out one at a time through tweezing.
It’s somewhat painful, but then again, so is waxing. The more you go, the more your skin gets used to it, and if you find a good salon, you won’t be super uncomfortable. For my Michigan folks, I currently go to Miracle Browz on Rochester Road.
After a three week hiatus, I finally made it back to the salon yesterday, and I feel so much better. It sounds stupid, but it’s one hundred percent true.
If you’re not a huge fan of waxing, I recommend you see if there is a threading salon near you and give it a try! Most salons shouldn’t charge you more than $12 for your eyebrows, and you can usually find the good ones by reading reviews online. Good luck!
• National Donut Day
Hey, hey, hey, it’s National Donut Day!
Do-nut pass up this opportunity to indulge in one if you get the chance.
Although it’s not National Doughnut Day (<- click to read the difference), you can still celebrate the food by stopping through any participating Dunkin’ Donuts or Krispy Kreme stores to receive a free donut with the purchase of a beverage! You better believe I’ll be taking advantage of that later today. Yum!
