Happy Friday! It has been a minute since I shared my Friday Favorites! So, here we go.
Our mudroom makeover is nearly complete! I can’t wait to show you the entire project, but I do want to share with you some hooks that I got a deal on from Amazon! I wanted a big study hook that could take some possible wear and tear but look beautiful. These will each hold up to 40 pounds! Those backpacks can get heavy, right? A pack of five is around $10 and free shipping with Prime. These hooks are almost 5.5″ tall. Can’t tell you why stuff like this excites me but it does. They are mounted to shiplap that I stained a darker shade to match the stairs that lead you into the family room. This mudroom is off of that room. I like the continuity of the stain transitioning especially if the door in-between is open. I looked all over for hooks like this and even Hobby Lobby could not beat the price of these. I am probably going to order a second set because I have a little project in mind for the kids bathroom for their towels.
Next in my Friday favorites is my Clarins Double Serum. Did you read that post on Monday? My skin is looking flawless and glowing. This magic potion is worth the luxury price. I’ve been using this Retinol Moisturizer since April and just opened a new bottle! So good, and I just took a chance when looking for a new, but budget friendly anti-aging moisturizer. A bottle of InstaNatural’s Retinol Moisturizer is less than $20 and I just love the consistency (goes on smooth – not a thick cream). Kinda makes my skin tingle a bit, and gives really nice results. I use the Vitamin C Facial Cleanser from the line as well.
It definitely wasn’t fall yet when I ordered these hoodies for me and T.J. I’m so glad I did though. I remember trying mine on the day it arrived and the air conditioning was blasting inside because outside it was almost 100 degrees. Just earlier this month in fact! Each time I wear it I get so many compliments. The Naketano brand is my new favorite for sweatshirts. So well made and the styling is like nothing you would typically find. I hear through the grapevine that the company is close to closing but there are a few pieces to shop on Amazon where the pricing is LOW! These pieces have real leather detailing and the cotton fabric is thick and plush. I just feel so cozy when I wear it. I am strongly considering ordering some as gifts for the upcoming holiday season along with a couple more for me and the husband. The quality and details are so good!
I hope you have a great weekend! Although it is rainy and cold here today, this weekend looks to be a spectacular fall weekend here in Connecticut. I think we will try and get some pumpkins from our favorite local farm and the rest of the fall and Halloween decorations up.
