Friday Faves 4.19

0 34

Hi friends! Happy Friday! How was the week? What are you up to this weekend? It’s going to be a wild but fun one over here. We have a military retirement party, a school event, a birthday party, a neighborhood block party, and it’s my brother’s birthday. Bring on all the spring fun! I’ve also been hard at work this week on an exciting opportunity through EquiLife. I’m so so excited and honored to be included, and I’ll share the details when I can 🙂

Let me know what you’re up to and what’s going on this spring. I love catching up with you and hearing about your life!

For now, it’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party. This is where I share some of my favorite finds from the week and around the web. I love learning about your faves, too, so please shout out something you’re loving in the comments section below.

Friday Faves 4/19


We had the most amazing date night at Le Rendezvous last weekend. It’s a Tucson classic, and so many people have raved about it, so we finally tried it out. Everything was a dream.

We shared scallops for an appetizer, enjoyed wine, the beef tenderloin for two (with perfect satueed veggies and a lil scalloped potato statck I wanted to live in), and Grand Marnier souffle. YUM. We’ll definitely be back with the girls, especially because they have escargot; their all-time favorite appetizer.

I realized I never posted before and after pics for our great floor project. We had our carpet upstairs replaced with laminate, and they also re-did our bedroom and office, since they used to be hardwood. We just wanted everything to match, and wanted a neutral brown that would be classic.

I’m so so happy with how it turned out!

We also had the railing on our stairs replaced.

This is what it looked like before:

with the safety rail as they redid the railing:

and the after:

A million times better.

We never intended to stay here forever, but we keep making updates to the house (like the pool!) that make us want to stick around longer. Also with the current market, we’re not planning on going anywhere.

The girls and I saw Phil Wickham in concert last night! I had been looking forward to it – the girls were neutral about it lol- for quite a while. We all ended up loving it and were singing and dancing the entire time. He’s incredibly talented, and I loved the overall messaging of the show, too. It was a great positive vibe festival for all of us.

P also received her First Communion this past weekend. We celebrated Mass with the fam and had an epic brunch at Ventana.

Read, watch, listen:

Don’t forgot to check out this week’s podcast episode about tapping here!

Five pick-me-ups.

Fitness, health, and good eats:

Still cruising along with the CBO protocol. I’m finally heading towards the end and it’s been nice to implement more foods into the rotation. Protocols are 20% off right now, including my fave detox. You can also stack the code FITNESSISTA10 for many of the EquiLife products with this link. 

Healthy Trader Joe’s shopping list. 

Fashion + beauty:

Got this dress from Dillard’s and obsessed with it. (I sized down to an XS since I read in the reviews that it runs big.)

It’s similar to a La Vie Style House tunic at a fraction of the price. I got hot pink, but now I want the black one. 

On a totally different note, you may have noticed that the Beautycounter site has gone dark starting today.

Here’s a copy of the email that I sent to my clients this morning:

Back In 2021, the company was sold to a private equity firm, The Carlyle Group. After a few years of discovering a mis-match in the true vision for the amazing company, founder and CEO, Gregg Renfrew (along with other like minded Investors) is buying it back.

This is great news – for you, for me, and for Beautycounter (and its mission) as a whole! I have full trust in Gregg as the leader.

The not-so-great piece of all this is that there will be a bit of downtime during the transition.

Starting today, the Beautycounter website will be DOWN, and not be available to shop again until Wednesday, May 1.

There are lots of rumors flying around that the company is closing, but Gregg has assured us that everything will be back to business as usual (products, ordering process, website, product credit – everything!) once the sale is complete on May 1. It should all look and feel the same at that time.

I have heard that there are some good things planned starting in May, including some new product launches this summer, so stay tuned!

Happy Friday, friends! Have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for stopping by the blog today.
