Happy Friday Everyone!
Today I’m sharing some Fall GOODNESS, since we’re officially into September. Let’s get started with Friday Five!
One – Paula’s Choice
Paula’s Choice was kind enough to send me some products again. I received the 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant, which I received last time and I was excited to receive a second bottle. I’ve been using this daily in the evening after I take off my makeup and I love how gentle it is on my skin. It removes dead skin cells on the surface of my skin and inside my pores, which leaves me with smooth and glowing skin.
The other product they sent me is new to me and is their Peptide Booster. This formula contains a concentrated dose of 8 highly targeted peptides that give skin a firmer, bouncier and more youthful look. I’ve started adding this product to my skincare regime before I apply my moisturizer and I’ve been pleased with the results so far.
Two – Happenings at Home
Nathan is training for his second level black belt and had a vigorous weekend of training, board breaking, running, a written test and he even did a speech… it is all part of their black belt weekend, which they complete before the black belt ceremony. He earned his actual black belt last year and next month he’ll be earning the second level to it (there are many levels of black belts).
Autumn is in 5th grade and that is when they start band at her school. She selected the flute and I snatched this photo of her in the car when she brought it home for the first time last week. I’m excited to see her grow and learn musically.
Three – Closet Organization & New Hangers
I’ve been working on the closets in our home this month. I’ve been wanting to swap out our hangers for better ones for quite some time now. We had plastic hangers in all of the colors of the rainbow, inexpensive metal wire hangers from previous dry cleaner visits and even some heavy wooden hangers. The kids still had white plastic child hangers that weren’t working with their bigger clothes. I decided to swap them out for these thin velvet (non-slip) velvet hangers in ivory off of Amazon.
So far I’ve only swapped out the hangers in our master bedroom closet. We have a ‘hallway’ closet that runs along one side of our room with a door on each side. Here is part of my side of the closet and I’ll spare you from seeing Brian’s side of the closet (ha!). I am just LOVING these new hangers! Eventually, I’d love to do a closet remodel and swap out the metal shelving for wood, but that is later down the line.
Four – Fall Instagram Love
Anyone else loving all of the Fall goodness on Instagram lately? I thought I’d share some Fall crushing I’ve been having on Instagram lately. Such as FancyThingsBlog… whenever I see her photos, I think cozy textures and beautiful neutrals with a touch of girly pink.
Another favorite Fall Instagram account of mine is the.rustic.shed. She has a shop and sells the most adorable mini rolling pins. She has Fall rolling pins, Halloween ones, etc. They’re so cute and I’ve been wanting to get some for my tiered tray! Plus, she has the cutest farmhouse style decor and loves Rae Dunn as much as I do!
Five – New Bible Study
I joined a new bible study group through CBS and I’ve been really enjoying it. We are doing the books Daniel and Revelations in the bible. I thought this would be a great way for me to meet some new people in my area and get out of the house a bit… plus, I did a bible study on my own during the summer and I want to keep going on it, since I enjoy learning more about the bible.
Well, I hope everyone has a nice and relaxing weekend!
