Happy Friday, friends! Today’s post is coming to you from a cozy spot on my parents’ couch where I’m admittedly still pajama-clad and watching the rain fall. I got to Louisiana yesterday to celebrate one of my high school best friends getting married this weekend, and it’s supposed to storm the entire time I’m here. Hoping and praying and crossing all my fingers that my friend has a rain-free wedding day, but other than her big day, I gotta say I’m not mad at the rain at all.
Besides this rainy Friday morning with a hot cup of coffee, I thought I’d share five more things I’m loving this week. (Because spicy honey and the best suck-you-in leggings were just meant to be shared between friends. Here’s hoping everyone has an amazing weekend ahead!
End of summer Habanero Watermelon Margaritas – Summer may be coming to a close, but it’s still pretty toasty outside. For your next happy hour, try out these delicious margarita cocktails made with Casamigos Tequila, Suja Watermelon Whim juice, fresh lime juice, and a few drops of Bear Root Habanero Ginger Bitters.
The coziest faur fur bomber jacket – I was roaming around Bloomingdale’s recently looking for a dress for a friend’s wedding when I was completely sidetracked by this jacket. Now it’ll be a while before I can wear anything super cozy around here, but I’m counting down the days until I can justify throwing this pretty on. The absolute softest faux fur, hooded, pockets, and the prettiest blush pink color – it’s a good one, y’all.
The best spicy honey – You guys, I never even knew I needed a spicy honey in my life, but it turns out, I certainly did. Somehow I came across Mike’s Hot Honey on Amazon and added it to my cart. I changed my mind and didn’t end up ordering, but the next time that Eric made an Amazon purchase, the honey was still in the cart and showed up at our front door in two days. And I’m so glad that it did. Serve it up next to a cheese plate, add it to a breakfast sandwich, or dip a chicken tender while you’re living your best weekend life. This stuff is so good, and I’m constantly finding new uses for it.
White Noise Lite App – I’m naturally a pretty light sleeper through the night, and I’ll wake up for any creak, crack, or noise. This white noise app has been a total game changer for me. It’s free to download, comes with a ton of different sound settings, and can be set to fade out or shut off whenever you want. I’m now falling asleep faster and staying asleep longer, and it’s been especially great for blocking out hotel sounds when I’m traveling.
Spanx legging season – With the changing seasons comes one of my favorite seasons of all – Spanx legging season. (It’s a real thing in my mind.) I’ve worn my black and navy pairs approximately 476 times over the last couple of years, and this year I’ve got my sights set on their new “Rich Olive” color. They’re a little pricey, but after you’ve worn them for an entire fall and winter, the cost per wear is super low.
