Every week I have random things I want to tell you. Maybe it is a new seasoning I got at the grocery store, a sale going on at my favorite boutique, a funny joke I heard, a new exercise move I found or really just anything that I think you might could benefit from hearing. The thing is, I don’t always know where to share it! Instagram stories can only go so far and doing a blog post on each of these random things would be scattered and silly. To help remedy the situation and hopefully provide you with something to look forward to each week, I’ve decided to create a little series called Friday Faves. So, to start out, here’s my Friday Faves for this week!
1. Everything but the Bagel Seasoning
I have known about this for much longer than a week, but I ran out of mine and had to replace it this week, so it was on my mind. My favorite way to use this Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel seasoning is on eggs in the morning or on top of avocado toast. It even tastes great sprinkled over vegetables or in different bowls with rice, veggies and meat. Honestly you could put it on poo and it would make it taste good.
2. Purse Organizer
I carry a huge tote to work every week and it only has 2 pockets. It can be hard to keep things organized when my bag seems like a bottomless pit. I found this purse organizer on Amazon and it has been a life saver. It comes in several colors and sizes, so they should have one to fit your bag! I got the medium in tan.
3. Favorite MEME
Because I saw this and laughed HARD.
4. Self-Tanning Drops and Water
I have used the Isle of Paradise tanning water and the drops both for about a month now and they’re amazing. You just mix them into your lotion and face moisturizer and then apply like normal. It gives you such a pretty glow. There seems to be a little bit of a learning curve for mastering the even application, so if you need help, check out my full post on them here. Here’s a picture the morning after I applied them. I love the color it gives and the scent is super subtle, unlike a spray tan.
5. Nerdy Book I’m Reading
My boss referenced a book he read on negotiating. This is something I am horrible at in a professional setting, so I asked if I could borrow it. I’ve been reading The Secrets of Power Negotiating and learning quite a lot! I thought it would be boring but there are some interesting things that I want to try soon. I find myself being somewhat submissive and probably too agreeable in the workplace so I am working on being more confident and firm in my professional opinions and negotiations, and this book has allll the good info. Whether it is closing a deal at work, landing a collab or just talking a Craigslist seller down, this book will teach you how!
So here's to the first FRIDAY FAVES post! I hope this little random roundup is fun and informative for you. Have something you think I should share in the Friday Faves next week? Send it to me! I would love to know! Have a fab weekend, chick. You deserve it!
