High Five for Friday #1

Christa Rene Photography

Happy Friday and happy fall! Fridays are my favorite because it means it's the weekend, and we get a little break from our routine work days. I'm starting this new Friday series where I will be sharing 5 things I either love, want to try, or have recently discovered and want to share! So let's high five for Friday, shall we?

1. The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is life. It's incredibly hydrating, smells delicious, and lasts for so long! If you're on the market for a good lip balm, try this. I use it in the morning, before bed, or just when my lips feel like they need a big gulp of water!

2. My sister-in-law shared this soup recipe with me this week, and I look forward to making it this fall and winter! Doesn't it look so delicious?

3. I've been trying out this Maskcara highlight for the past few days as a way to smooth out my skin.  A makeup artist I follow on Instagram, Julia, uses these products, and I really love the idea of simplifying my beauty products and routine. If you're unfamiliar with Maskcara products, the majority are cream based, and you purchase tins that fit into a pallet. The point is that you apply different creams in different shades to give your face dimension. If you want to know more, I hope to do a review in the near future, but for now, go follow sweet Julia for her amazing tutorials!

4. I am still loving my Carrie Elle planner! Carrie posts her planner on Insta stories sometimes, and I am so inspired to be as creative as she is with my planning! You can find my full review of the perpetual planner here if you are interested. If you're in the market for a planner for the new year, I highly recommend purchasing from Carrie Elle!

5. I'm not one to celebrate Christmas before Thanksgiving, but I did just order this pencil tree last night for our den. We don't have a ton of extra space, so I thought this would be perfect! For only $50, it looks like a really nice tree and has pretty good reviews!


  1. Oh my goodness, that soup recipe looks so good! I cannot wait to try it!! Gimme Some Oven has some of my favorite soup recipes!

    1. Doesn't it look so delicious?! I will have to check out more of her soup recipes for sure!
