Happy Friday Everyone! There’s no official Hug Your Home update just yet, I’ve been maintaining the kitchen and bathroom …and hope to tackle the bedroom/switch over my closet this weekend (yikes), so stay tuned for that haha.
I wanted to put together a Friday Favorites post because I feel like there were so many new clothes, products, random items/things, and recipes to share from the past few weeks. Lets jump right into them!
Stuffed Pepper Casserole. I recently made this recipe from Well Plated and oh my gosh was it delicious! I find stuffed peppers so difficult to eat, so this unstuffed version was right up my alley. The recipe yielded more than enough servings which allowed me to freeze half of the batch for a later day. Definitely give this recipe a try!
Vlogging! If you’re subscribed to my YouTube channel, you know that I shared a vlog earlier this week. I really enjoyed not only filming it, but editing it as well. I thought that it was pretty well received and I’d love to share them more often. Let me know if you tuned in & what you’d like to see more of on my channel this season!
Charlotte Tilbury Collagen Lip Bath Gloss. In recent years, I haven’t been much of a gloss girl, but I’ve been wearing this one all week (paired with my KKW Liner in Nude 1) and I am loving the combo …and the change of pace! I have it in the shade Rosy Glow (super natural) I’m actually wearing it right now as I write this. 🙂
Dream Pairs Sneakers. I’ve shared these on Instagram, but they’re worth reposting! I absolutely LOVE both of the pairs that I ordered. The beige & orange is so different than anything else I’ve ever owned and the stark white are the perfect staple shoe – I like wearing them w/ a monochromatic look! They’re not only clean, unique, and really affordable – they’re incredibly comfy. For me, comfortable sneaks are a must.
Castor Oil. I’ve been exploring all kinds of hair growth products/treatments and I’ve been reading a ton about the benefits of using this oil on your hair – as well as your skin. I’ve been using it on my cuticles, as a scalp treatment, and on my face at night. So far, I’ve been enjoying it – too early to report results, but my skin hasn’t responded poorly and my nails are looking great! It’s very thick (think molasses), but sometimes you need that kind of moisture!
Olive & June Nail polish. You guys, if you’re in the market for some new polish – order yourself an O&J shade. All you need is a bottle of color & their glossy topcoat – their other accessories are great, but you truly just need those two things! Your nails will shine, they’ll last, and most importantly, they’ll be salon quality.
Grey Slippers. I picked these up for just under $4 at Walmart and they are the best house shoes ever! Over the years, I’ve weeded out all of my slippers and had found myself without any! These are great because they’re comfy, soft, and match with just about everything. I’m always so tempted to wear them out!
JOAH Brow Down Pencil. I posted an IG video for them recently, but ever since I received this pencil a few weeks ago, I’ve been using the bejesus out of it! I had my eyebrows microbladed a year and a half ago by the talented Desiree, and while they haven’t completely faded, they’re definitely not as defined as they were. This super fine tip is very easy to work with and can be used to shape and fill your brows as much or as little as you want!
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. I went through a tub of this 3 years ago. I didn’t use them very consistently and don’t remember any miraculous changes in my hair, skin, or nails, but since I’m back on a healthy hair journey, I decided to give them another try! I love adding a scoop to my coffee and can’t wait to see what happens this time around.
This week seemed very long, but it was a good one! I feel like I have so many different things going on, but having a lot on my plate often forces me to prioritize and be more productive; I’m not too mad about it!
I hope you all have a great weekend – I’m hoping I’m able to squeeze some Fall fun into mine (if I ever finish swapping over that closet!)
