Friday Favorites | Jan. 16 – 22, 2020

Hello friends!

I’ve decided that instead of having a monthly wrap up of my favorite things, I’d rather share a weekly wrap up that is smaller and more focused on what I’ve really been enjoying for the week!  I tend to forget things as the month goes on, so having to think in terms of weeks will hopefully make me remember those things that I’ve been loving so much!

1. Being ‘the disabled one’ in university – One thing that I really love about Jessica’s channel is that she’s incredibly honest and upfront about her disabilities. Her stories are always so fascinating, but she makes it difficult to feel bad due to her cheery attitude. This is a bit more of a downer than usual, but it’s something I think is important to discuss and understand.

2. Finding ABH Riviera at Marshall’s – I have been in love with the Riviera color story for forever, but could never bite the bullet and pay full price. Well, I didn’t have to! Shopping at Marshall’s last weekend, I found this palette on sale for $24.99!  I was so unbelievably excited that I had to share it here as well – a definite favorite moment of the week!

4. Lauren DellaFera’s 2020 Declutter Series – Lauren has been a favorite YouTuber of mine since she started her YouTube channel, and her declutter series are always my favorite of them all!  She’s got videos going up for the entire week – the video linked below is the first of five.

30 Days of Decluttering | April 2019

Hello friends!

In January I did a decluttering challenge for myself where I wanted to get rid of 31 items; one for each day.  I ended up getting rid of so much more than that, but I can’t help but feel a little overwhelmed by how much stuff I still have.  I’ve also been bringing in quite a few new items lately, so I decided to do another daily declutter for this month!

The thing about this declutter is that it’s much harder than January.  I don’t have many items in mind that need to go, so I’m going to take a deeper look into my collection of stuff to see what I really feel like I don’t need.
