Five Friday Favorites.

Friday, July 21, 2017

Hello Friday! It's been a fun week celebrating Mason's birthday and my niece's birthday, but I must admit, the birthday hangover is real and I am pretty excited that it's Friday and the weekend!

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite recent purchases with you. I currently own and love every single one of these items.

Swim suits.

I don't think it's necessarily because I'm a mom, more because I'm not 100% comfortable showing off my mom bod and I could use to eat a few less Oreos before my body is bikini ready, so I decided to get some one piece swim suits for the summer. I rarely opt to go in the pool with Mason, mainly because I am not really all that comfortable in a swim suit, but I found a couple black (go figure - my "color" of choice) one pieces at Target that I LOVE. I own both of the above options and LOVE them. They are super flattering on!

Thank you to Sarah and this post for giving me the idea to check our Target's swim selection!

Swim suit cover up.

Now that I've got a swim suit that I plan to wear, I need something to cover it up as we walk to the pool, right? Right. That and we're going to Hawaii in a few months and I'm of course going to need one there too, right? Right. I don't normally shop at Macy's, but I saw a couple people rave about this cover up so I ordered it and I LOVE it!

New sandals.

Speaking of Macy's, I found that cover up but it didn't get my cart to enough to get free shipping, so I kept searching in hopes that I could find some new sandals. I wear my black ones almost every day, but I've been looking for brown/cognac ones for forever and thought these looked cute online. That and the $14 price tag not only got me to free shipping for my whole purchase, but $14 for sandals was right up my alley. I'm kind of picky about how my sandals look so I didn't have high hopes for these, but upon trying them on, I loved them too! I ordered them a half size up per the reviews and they fit perfectly.

New iPad case.

We recently got a new iPad and I knew we were going to need a case for it -- a protective case to keep my five year old from breaking it when (not if) he drops it. Since the iPad is pretty new, there still aren't a lot of options, especially from the big names that normally make super protective cases, so I searched on Amazon and finally found this one. We got it in the mail the other day and I LOVE it! I love the color, I love the protection, I love that it comes with a screen protector, I love the stand. I mean, we've only been using it for a short while, but so far I'd totally recommend it!

Over-the-sink dish drying rack.

Our new place's kitchen is A LOT smaller than our old place. We were using a dish drying rack that sat to the side of the sink in our old place, but because there is a lot less counter space here, I knew that wouldn't work. So I searched on Pinterest for space saving ideas and then I searched on Amazon for options and I found this over-the-sink dryer rack. We've been using it since we moved in almost two months ago and we LOVE it. It's pretty big and holds a bunch of stuff. It's also pretty strong. We've had no problem with storing pots and pans on it to dry. If you have a small kitchen or limited counter space, I'd highly recommend this!

And these are just a few of my recent deliveries! #oops #onlineshoppingaddict
Maybe I'll round up more favorites next week 😉


  1. Those bathing suits are adorable and I love the coverup. Very cute!! Drew gets so annoyed when I wash dishes and let them dry on the counter. Ha ha. I figure if he wants them put away immediately he can do it. Right?

  2. That bathing suit is SO cute! This is usually the perfect time of year to buy them they aren't totally picked over and you can usually find lots of sales too. I am in the market for a two piece. I prefer coverage too, but in separates so I can mix and match and use the bathroom easier, lol. Happy Friday!

  3. $14 sandals sounds good to me too! And I love the over the sink drying rack. Great idea.

  4. Well aren't you a budding fashionista?! Seriously love both those suits, cover up, AND the sandals!

  5. I love both suits AND the coverup AND the sandals!! I have some sandals that look just like those from Target and I've been wearing them all summer!

  6. I have a drying rack like that and it's so helpful for quick dishes. I picked mine up from Bed, Bath and Beyond for around $20 with a coupon.

  7. You are the queen of online shopping! Im not in the bathing suit buying mode but I love those sandals!

  8. Those suits are so cute! And I love the drying rack!

  9. I haven't read a blog post in forever, so I feel like I'm waaaay behind!! Hawaii?!?! That is awesome and I'm super jealous! I love those one-pieces AND that cover-up!!! (Thanks for the shoutout btw!) I also love that drying rack! We have something that sits down in our sink and just pile our clean things there, but this is also great!

  10. That cover up and swimsuit are so cute!

  11. Love to see what's been in all those fun packages at your door..!! :)
