TGIF- Friday Favorites

Happy Friday peeps!

I hope y’all had a great week and hopefully have an even better weekend planned. As usual, linking up with these lovely ladies:

April at Smidge of This for Five on Friday, Karli at September Farm for Oh Hey Friday, Amanda at Meet at the Barre for Friday Favorites and Erika at A Little Bit of Everything for Friday Favorites.

Let’s get started!


I had to go by Ulta the other week to return some new products I tried and wasn’t feeling. Lucky for me, the TIGI/Bed Head styling products were buy 2 get 1 free and I was in desperate need of some dry shampoo so I picked up my fave dry shampoo of all time: Bed Head Rockaholic Dry Shampoo.

This product was actually my first dry shampoo I ever tried, it came out back in the day when I used to work at Ulta. It smells amazing and it works. If you’re looking for a good dry shampoo, you should give this bad boy a try.

What’s your favorite dry shampoo?




So I’m trying to incorporate more salmon into my diet. Salmon was on sale at the grocery store this past week so I picked some up and searched Pinterest for an easy recipe to try. If you’ve ever looked for salmon recipes on Pinterest, have you noticed that almost every single one of them is teriyaki flavored? I get that it pairs well with salmon, but damn, all I think about is all the salt that goes with it.

Thankfully I found this simple salmon recipe from Baker by Nature. All it is is lemon zest, honey, lemon juice, garlic, thyme, pepper and salt. You make the marinade, pour it over the salmon, bake and you’re ready to rock my friends. I paired mine with some pearl cous cous (so much better than regular cous cous) and some veggies. Since the ingredients in this are light and simple, you could make the salmon and easily add it to a salad.

If you have a yummy salmon recipe, let a sister know!

A couple weeks ago I built me some pretty sweet window boxes. This past Saturday Corey and I went to Home Depot to look for some pretty things to fill them with and I have to say, for being a garden/landscape beginner I’m pretty impressed with how they turned out.

I’ll be sharing all the details soon, but in the meantime, here’s a sneak peak!


And speaking of plants, my mom and I have plans to go plant shopping tomorrow!

One of my goals for this year with the house was to get the landscaping under control. When Corey and I moved in three years ago all we had was a boring square flower bed and some dead mums. It’s been cool because we had a blank canvas to work with, but it’s also not been cool because landscaping is a crap ton of work. And a crap ton of money.

But it’s all good in the hood. Everything has slowly but surely been improving over the years.

Last Sunday I started digging out this whole area in front of our house to add some more curb appeal to what’s currently going on. And now I know why professional landscaping is so expensive, that ish is hard!

Don’t judge the below picture too far, I’m aware we got a long ways to go.


Happy Easter everybody!

    I need to try that dry shampoo! And I didn’t realized you used to work at Ulta. We had salmon this week too. I need to check out that recipe. I always feel like we eat salmon more in the summer for some reason. I love how your window box came out! Ugh, everything with working on a house seems to be a process. Baby steps, your landscaping is looking great. I hope you have a great Easter!
