    Movie Night Inspiration | Friday Favorites

    Most Friday nights you can count on these two things happening: there will be wine in my hand and a Lifetime movie on the television. But since it’s Oscar weekend, I thought maybe I’d step it up a notch and put together an actual movie night spread. So, I teamed up with Toffifay to put my own spin on movie night inspiration for today’s Friday Favorites’ post! This was so fun because not only did I completely surprise myself with how well it came together, but now I’m thinking that I should do this sort of thing more often!

    It literally took me no time at all to whip up everything you’ll see in today’s photos, and I’ve got some tips for how you can pull it off in your own home too. (Even if you don’t have a little helper like Odie.) Key Takeaway: I have basically learned that everyone’s weekend plans should include chocolate, wine and popcorn…

    Wine Down For Awards Season

    Hollywood’s biggest nights just wouldn’t be right without a big glass of wine while watching the red carpet gown coverage! Got my bottles of Francis Ford Coppola Wines  – these are the exact Directors Cut wines that they will be serving for the Academy Awards – so fancy huh?

    Tory Burch Love, Relentlessly

    I’m a big fan of Tory Burch’s crisp and clean scents, and I’m excited to add this newest fragrance, Love, Relentlessly, to my rotation. (As if the packaging wasn’t swoon-worthy enough, right?)

    Happy weekend you guys! We have a few fun things planned like a Mardi Gras parade party AND our first crawfish boil of the year at our house tomorrow!! As always, I’ll be snapping along and posting to IG Stories when I remember to! 😉

    Eberyjey Pajama Set Eberyjey Pajama Set

    Eberjey Pajamas

    It’s been a while since I treated myself to nice pajamas, so this Eberjey pajama set was my VDay gift to myself! They are so super soft, you’ll never want to go back to old t-shirts! (I wear a size M for a looser fit.)

    BellaBeat Tracker

    I was afraid that I’d fall off my exercise routine once I started traveling this spring, so I’m using my BellaBeat tracker to monitor my activity each day. I can even monitor my stress on this thing! (There’s now a pretty rose gold clip!)

    Zero George Street Hotel

    Zero George Bicycles

    How could these bikes NOT make it into my Friday Favorites? I’m now convinced I need a mint cruiser with a basket up front for Odie to ride in.

    Charleston Flower Boxes

    I’m not totally sure if flower boxes would survive the Louisiana heat, but I’m about 99% sure that I’m going to try to pull it off this spring.

    The prettiest blooms from The Bouqs

    The Bouqs

    Speaking of flowers, when I got home from Charleston, I had the prettiest bouquet of farm-grown flowers from The Bouqs waiting on me! Even after 2 days sitting in the box (get a clue Jordan), they still look gorgeous! All flowers are grown on sustainable and eco-friendly farms that recycle rainwater and provide safe working conditions and fare wages.

    Friday Favorites: Wellness Products

    Today’s post is dedicated to my favorite wellness products that have been helping me recharge my health. At the end of last year, I was feeling, so blah – no energy, no focus, always in a funk. I have been calling them my slug days. Because I basically felt just like a slug – leaving a trail of sluggish bad energy behind me everywhere I went. I wanted to majorly overhaul my self-care and wellness to start the new year, so I started integrating easy, little habits to kickstart the process of getting back on track.

    I definitely want to expand on these three categories in the next few months, but as a quick intro, I am sharing what’s been helping me FEEL more like me!

    See below for three of my favorite wellness products this month!

    Nike Juvenate in gray | athletic leggings | gray long tee | Timex watch | Sole Society bag | Zevia water

    Favorite Wellness Products | Adding Essential Oils to Your Morning and Bedtime Routines

    Essential Oils

    Essential oils are quickly becoming part of my everyday routine! Right now, I’m using a mixture of both Doterra oils and Aveda’s balancing chakra oils. I use the Doterra Lavender on my inner wrists to help me sleep deeper and Breathe in the diffusor if I’m having sinus issues before bedtime. To get the morning started, I add Lemon to my water for my workouts. After workouts, I’ll pick a chakra oil to spray depending on what my motivation for the day is. I would love love love to get more into essential oils in a longer post soon! Let me know in the comments if you have any favorites or combinations I should try!

    Favorite Wellness Products | This handheld skin exfoliator is an easy way to achieve microdermabrasion at home!

    Dry Brushing / Exfoliation

    I’ve talked about dry brushing before and how important it is to the body’s lymphatic system, but I’ve discovered this little handheld exfoliator that basically acts like a dry brush for my face! Crystal Smooth has a crystalized head that comes in three different strengths. (I’ve worked my way up to moderate!) I use it in between my PMD sessions for a routine that’s super close to microdermabrasion at home!

    Favorite Wellness Products | Swapping out carbonated sodas for carbonated water instead

    Carbonated Water

    You guys… I LOVE Diet Coke. It’s been my biggest vice for years!! But I knew to make any healthy progress this year, ditching the soda was one thing that had to happen. My Diet Coke served as my afternoon pick-me-up after my morning coffee wore off. That first sip out of the can – it was like a drug – anyone feel me on this? There was basically no way I was going to quit cold turkey. I had to find something that still gave me that little fizzy lift. Since around November, I have officially switched to carbonated water (or sparkling if you wanna be fancy). There are a ton of flavors out there if you can’t get on board with just normal carbonated water. Zevia has a TON of flavors that almost feel like you’re drinking a soda. So, I am still giving myself an afternoon treat now without all the chemicals!

    Do you guys have any favorite wellness products that I should try? Leave them in the comments below or over in Instagram!
