Happy Friday! Can we all agree full weeks after a vacation are rather brutal? This week was a struggle for me – I have been so sleepy all week. I think still catching up from our vacation and the slight time difference threw me off. Looking forward to a three day weekend and hopefully lots of zzzz’s to help me feel refreshed and ready to conquer next week!

To close out the week, my Friday five, five of my favorite finds from this week – including one item I started using this week and am madly in love with!
FIVE THINGS I’M LOVING THIS WEEK
Sweet Laurel Savory Cookbook
Filled with gluten-free and plant-based savory recipes that are both simple and delicious. This cookbook is on my current wish list! Love the idea of simple, clean recipes. Especially in the summer when there is a wide array of fresh produce to cook with.
Inspiring Monogram Mugs
These sweet monogram mugs are filled with inspiring words to live by. These uplifting mugs are the perfect new homeowner, hostess, girl friend, and neighbor gifts to give this summer season.
Joshua and I have a tradition of taking a polaroid camera with us on all our longer travels. We love the spontaneity and vintage feel of them! This newer version has auto-exposure – a huge upgrade that guarantees proper lighting for your images.
Woven Straw Visor
This retro-inspired straw visor is both chic and practical. Perfect for days when you want to protect your face from the sun’s rays, while also keeping your hair tied up in a high bun.
Wild Huckleberry Polishing Peel
Clean beauty has become such a passion of mine. I love discovering new brands and products. This recent find was introduced to me by Aillea – a clean beauty store here in Charlotte. This gentle polishing peel can be used daily (am or pm) as a mask, polish, and peel to resurface skin, refine pores, even texture, and brighten.
