Friday Favorites: May 22nd Lifestyle

It’s official…this is my first EVER “Friday Favorites” post!!! I’m trying out something new because I get SO many requests to share my fave beauty, home, fashion and lifestyle products! I’ve been doing NOTHING but online shopping this entire quarantine (anyone else!?) so I have TONS of new recommendations to share with you all!! If you like this post and want to see more of them, let me know – because they are some hard work (I have so much respect for fashion bloggers after putting this together!!!) but I want to keep doing them if ya’ll love them!!

*You can shop all of the products by clicking on the photo or shopping at the end of the post. These links are affiliate links, which means I get a small commission if you purchase from that link (with no added cost to you!) 🙂

#1: First up I’m sharing my new fave shampoo and conditioner that I mentioned in THIS video! It’s the perfect toning shampoo and conditioner combo for blondes – I LOVE that it tones my hair to get out the yellow without leaving too much of a silver/purple hue. It also leaves my hair feeling REALLY healthy!

#2: THE. BEST. SWEATPANTS. OF ALL TIME. They are a bit price because they’re LuLuLemon, but I can’t get enough of them. I’m wearing them as I type this! I never understood the hype of LuLu until I got this pair of pants. I swear I could live in them all day, everyday. I have them in black and plan to order in more colors!

#3: I LOVE me a good statement pillow, and this one is my new fave addition! I love the entire Caitlin Wilson brand, but I got this sweet pillow monogrammed and it’s in the center of my living room couch. I truly just love it!

#4: The holy grail of dry shampoos! I cannot swear by this enough, and I have shared it WAAAY too many times on the blog. Haha! But, I literally buy it in the jumbo size and have multiple bottles at any given moment. It’s my JAM.

#5: The BEST summer perfume. All of my friends who have smelt this on me have bought it for themselves – haha! It’s such a sweet, light summer scent that reminds me SO much of Charleston (which is way I originally bought it, long before I actually moved here!)

#6: My new patio couch (and it’s on sale right now!) It JUST got delivered this week and I am OBSESSED. I love the light wood tones and it’s so cozy!

#7: My most recent home purchase is this GORGEOUS rug for my guest room!!! It’s SO crazy affordable ($350 for the 8×10) considering the dupe is THIS Caitlin Wilson rug (almost $3k for the same size!)

#8: My new FAVE jumpsuit – it’s the COZIEST material (almost like athletic shorts) and I wear it around the house to work nonstop! It could even work as a wedding day jumpsuit on a hot day – or a portrait session!

#9: My new all-time FAVORITE hair tool. I am literally obsessed. I can’t curl my own hair (like, literally don’t know how because I’m terrified of curling irons) but this tool is SO. EASY. and gives me the best beach waves!

BONUS: This Amazon dress is one of my new faves (I got it in two colors) and it’s LESS THAN $35!!! Truly in love with it and can’t recommend it enough – great quality for how affordable it is!!
