Five Things Friday

Happy Friday! Who else is excited for this long weekend? Not only is it our anniversary on Sunday, but we have a staycation at the Loews Hotel, Atlanta planned and we are so excited to get away. Since we are officially in September, I wanted to share my current Fall favorites with you. 
A good planner is key for busy moms. We need a place to keep up with doctors appointments, school activities, and weekend plans. I’m loving the Start Planners and all of their fun designs. I use the Mid-Year Legit Weekly Planner and it’s been so helpful to keep track of everyone’s schedule. 
I rarely wear makeup during the week and if I do, I stick with black liquid eyeliner and mascara. I’ll admit that the only reason I purchased the Katy Perry cosmetics is because of the monochrome packaging. I actually love the mascara, especially the curved wand and it lasts all day without clumping. Plus, it was only $8!

The past few months I have really been using my essential oils daily and experimenting with different diffuser combinations, rubs, and doing general research on my favorites. I use Lavender daily in the diffuser and on my kids’ feet before they go to bed. Did you know it can also stimulate hair growth? I put a few drops in my shampoo and also my mascara to make my lashes fuller. Not only does this oil aid with hair regrowth, it also treats anxiety, sleeplessness, and stress. If you interested in learning more about essentials oils and their benefits, shoot me an email! {}
Aside from diffusing different oil blends, I also love a good smelling candle. My all time favorite is the Capri Blue Volcano from Anthropologie. With subtle hints of grapefruit and orange, it’s perfect to burn year round and the jar is so beautiful. I have one on my bedside table and in our kitchen. 
A few weeks ago a came across the cutest website for sunglasses {Glow Glam} and immediately fell in love with everything on their site. I’ve always been a sunglasses addict and when I saw the Cali Rose pair, I knew I had to have them. I love the rose gold color and mirrors lenses. They are different from the normal sunglasses you see around, which makes them so unique. If you sign up for their email list you will get 20% off your first order and free shipping! 
Do you have any fun plans for the Holiday weekend? I hope the rain holds out so we can get some outdoor time. Be safe and enjoy the long break! xo


  1. Those are such lovely faves, Chanel! I am here from the FB thread 🙂
    Planning is key, and I am sure when I have kids I will need to put even more time and effort into it (I'm a big planner girl as it is lol). Essential oils is something I need to explore and feel like I am missing out big time. What oil/scent would you recommend to get for the fall? (I hope it's not a very silly question) Also, I had no idea Lavender stimulates hair growth!! I must try it <3
    By the way, say hi to a new follower 😉 Will add you now on socials!

  2. You and me both on the Katy Perry mascara – I love it too and was 100% drawn to it because of the packaging! Have you tried the lipstick yet? I got the Pink Paws one and am liking it but not loving it.

    You've inspired me to try essential oils! Think they'll work on puppy feet too?



  3. Oh my goodness gracious, I love this! I just got my new planner this week and have been LOVING it! Such a necessity as a busy mom! And I will be checking out that candle, that wounds wonderful! Hope you had a nice relaxing weekend!
