This & That Fridays – July 27


Can someone explain to me how it’s going to be August next week?  The Summer is going way too fast and I’d like for it to slow down.  In the meantime I don’t want to hear a word about pumpkin spice or sweaters or anything Fall-related. #sorrynotsorry

I can’t remember if I mentioned this or not but a few months ago we started watching Brooklyn Nine Nine on Netflix, even though I didn’t think it would be a show that I would like.  Last weekend we finished up the last season and I have to say I’m hooked.  It’s absolutely hilarious and such a good escape from everyday life.


I’ve been on the hunt for some summer sandals and now that it’s half over I finally found a pair that I love – these Cole Haan Penelope II Wedges. so far they seem pretty comfortable and I think they’re going to work well for me.

I had to buy a new phone case a few weeks ago after my Sonix one cracked after only 6 months of use – not impressed!  I ended up with this one from Kate Spade; it’s pretty but I really wanted this one.  I couldn’t bring myself to pay $45 for it though.

After months of talking about it, I finally placed an order for some Ordinary products from; I picked up the Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA, the Hyaluronic Acid 2% +B5 and the Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%.  I love them all and will do reviews on them shortly.


I really wanted want one of these Barefoot Dreams cardigans from the Nordstrom Sale but they sold out in like a minute.  I still might add one to my Christmas wish list anyway.

I’ve been hearing such good reviews of the new Too Faced Born This Way concealer – once I finish using up my Tarte Shape Tape, I think I’m going to pick one of these up.

This retro phone would look so cool in my office, don’t you agree?

Look at how cute this Minnie Mouse case is!  I’m not usually a fan of folio-style cases but I’d make an exception for this one.

I love this mug!

    Hahaha those memes are killing me. The last one is so me!

    We’re loving Brooklyn Nine-Nine too, after realizing it’s made by the same people that did The Good Place, and also being told by friends over and over again that we needed to watch it. Love the humour in it! I think I still like The Good Place better, though.

    I love your phone case, both the one you bought and the one you wanted to buy! Kate Spade has the cutest phone cases.

      Yes I love The Good Place too! I love shows that have that kinda sarcastic, dry and quirky humour.

      I literally could buy a new Kate Spade phone case every week – I want them all! 🙂
