Happy happy (happy) Friday! My work week was busy and I’m happy to have a holiday weekend to look forward to. Many blessings to my readers celebrating Easter and Passover! Let’s go ahead and get started – I’ve got a lot of good stuff this week!

I ordered two incredible dresses on amazon recently that are too good not to share. The first is an off-the-shoulder pink dress with buttons down the front – oh my goodness I just adore the color, the way it fits, the ruffles! So feminine and pretty. I will say the material is a little sheer, so you will have to wear a slip or spanx with it – but for $20, this dress is a gem! Mine is a size small.
The second is this yellow dress *with pockets* that is so cute, summery and flattering. The buttons are working buttons (perfect for you nursing mamas!) and mine is a size small. Both dresses are just such fun, inexpensive finds. I also ordered these leggings in the color azure splash. I’ve heard rave reviews about them so had to try them out for myself!
I talked about these pave bar earrings on my stories this week – I can’t believe the price ($13.99) and the quality is fantastic – I have super sensitive ears and accidentally slept in them one night with zero irritation! I love wearing these in my second earring hole or just on their own in my first!
This similar style to a designer bikini fits so well (mine is a medium) and is very flattering on the tummy as it’s a higher-waisted style. The scallops are beautiful!
I wore this button-front tank to work with my black pixie pants and a blazer this week and it is SO cute! Perfect for the warmer temps ahead where you need a lightweight layer. I love how it can be worn casually with jeans but can be majorly dressed up for work.
I’m looking for a lightweight black cardigan for the office (I have this one in b&w stripe and blush from Nordstrom) and I found this one for $34 that looks nearly identical. It has pretty great reviews so I ordered it last night!
This amazon kid’s clothing line is so so so pretty! So many adorable dresses – very reminiscent of Janie & Jack.

I’m obsessed with Stabuck’s sous vide egg white bites with red pepper. I don’t eat eggs a ton, but when I do, I love these bite-sized, fluffy balls of goodness. I figured there must be a recipe online to replicate these – and found this blog post! I’m ordered this silicone egg bite mold to test out the recipe at home. Stay tuned!

Has anyone tried Sakara Life? They came out with a book this week and I’m tempted to buy it (their actual meal delivery service is over $400 for 5 days…which is…a lot, though of course you can’t beat that level of convenience if it’s in line with your budget). I don’t eat plant-based, but I love the idea of learning to incorporate more plant-based meals into my life since I rely so heavily on meat for my protein (I have no desire to stop eating it, just looking to expand my option). I’d actually love to do a challenge where I eat plant-based for a week just to see how I feel – but I don’t like eating a ton of carbs (they make me crash), so I think I’d need some guidance/meal ideas that are protein and fiber heavy.

This blazer has RAVE reviews so I ordered it during a 50% off sale – I saw many of y’all ordered it as well. I love these types of blazers for work because they instantly make an outfit look more put together. You could literally wear a plain t-shirt underneath it and would look incredibly chic.
By the way, I’ve been wearing my Gucci belt to work and it’s beyond perfect! I’m so happy I bought it. The only annoying this is that I drink a lot of water which means I pee a lot – so it takes a little extra time to unbuckle it every single time I use the restroom, LOL.

I got so many comments on my nail polish this week – the color is called Cajun Shrimp. It’s a summer staple for me! I also started layering this mascara under this one recently and have been loving the results. I also had to order a new Shu Uemura eyelash curler this week because mine is several years old and has just lost its pep.
If you were wondering how the It Cosmetics Heavenly Skin foundation brush is working out for me so far – it’s fantastic. After a recent breakout situation which was no doubt hormone-related, I’ve vowed to clean my brushes more often.
Use code SKINC15 for 15% off of Skinceuticals today – their CE Ferulic serum is 100% worth the cost and is a skin game-changer.J.Crew Factory is also having an amazing sale -see my picks below:
WHAT I’M READING – I’m about to start Little Fires Everywhere on Audible.
FAVE NEW BREAKFAST SPOT – We’ve been loving Dish Society. I order the “Memorial scramble” and add avocado and sub the fruit for the rosemary sweet potatoes.
WHAT I’M LOVING THIS WEEK – Desitin. I know, so freaking random. I had two horrible breakouts this week right next to one another and I swear this helps with healing and redness. The area where the pimples are is now flaking and gross, but I sleep with this on it overnight and I do feel it speeds healing time. Keep a tube of this on hand at home, even when your kids are out of diapers – trust.
BLAST FROM THE PAST – No thank you to these shoes. Please send them back to the decade they came from (and yes, I had a pair).
Have a wonderful weekend!
