Friday Favorites: July 10, 2020 Lifestyle


Back with another Friday Favorites post! Each week, I’ll be sharing a variety of products I’ve been loving in categories like lifestyle, home, fashion and beauty! You can shop this week’s items quickly below, or keep scrolling to learn more about each! This week I wanted to highlight some of my summer beauty staples, my new fave bra of all time (sorry to the guys), my go-to summer jean shorts and some new home decor pieces!

#1: This ADORABLE little tray reminds me so much of some of the accessories in my own home – I have a similar one in my guest bathroom that I adore! It’s such a pretty texture and color.

#2: I scored a pair of very similar ginger jar lamps at Home Goods YEARS ago, and ya’ll have asked about them so many times. This is such a beautiful dupe!

#3: My go-to for the last 3+ years! My friend is visiting in town this week and told me it HAD to be in this week’s Friday Favorites because she’s obsessed!


Hope Taylor IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara


#4: This is what I use for my year-round foundation, but it is the BEST in the summertime. It provides the perfect amount of coverage and includes SPF to protect your skin. This is the matte version that is a little more full coverage, but I personally love the glowy one in the purple bottle most!

#5: My friend told me about these Target jean shorts she scored and fell in LOVE with, so I went and grabbed a few different pairs to try. These ones are my FAVORITE – they fit so true to size (I’m a 6!) and are the perfect amount of coverage!


Hope Taylor Friday Favorites Target High Rise Jean Shorts


#6: I also snagged these the same day as the jean shorts – they are SO cozy for at-home work days or at the beach! I love that they’re so soft (and high waisted!)

#7: My go-to head phones for my workouts! My Airpods don’t stay in my ears so I can’t run in them. These Beats are awesome and help me survive my workouts!

#8: LADIES. If you buy one thing from this blog post…it should be this!!! My mom discovered these and they are truly the most COMFY bra I have ever worn. They have no clasp and are seamless and truly the most comforting and flattering bra I’ve ever owned. Just do it.

#9: My all-time favorite lip gloss! It is such a great formula that is shiny and moisturizing without being too sticky. I love it for the summer!


Hope Taylor Friday Favorites Fenty Beauty Lip Gloss


#10: The BEST smelling sunscreen that makes you feel like you are always on vacation!


Hope Taylor Friday Favorites Sun Bum Sunscreen


#11: I’ve been using this every day for the last few weeks and SWEAR by it. I am super fair-skinned and don’t ever tan, and I’ve found this to be the perfect natural color without being splotchy or orange!
