#1 This golden hour sunlight in my kitchen has suddenly appeared this year. I don’t know exactly why I’ve never seen it before, but I am loving that early evening glow in the corner!

#2 The L’Oreal Infallible 24 HR Fresh Wear Foundation has been recommended by a couple different bloggers and YouTubers that I follow. I’ve worn L’Oreal foundation exclusively for several years but hadn’t tried this one yet – I’m so glad I did!

If you’re looking for a good long-wear foundation under $12, this is it! It has a really nice shade range and wears nicely all day long. I’ve been wearing it this summer with a Matte Lock Primer, HD Powder and a Setting Spray and it doesn’t budge! I’m not sure how well it will do in the winter when my skin is drier – it seems like it might not do well with dry patches.

#3 I’ve been looking for the perfect rain jacket all summer. I wanted one with a hood and a light lining, and I wanted it to fit nicely without being snug or too oversized. That’s harder than you think! I finally found this one at Target – if you’re under 5″ like me, it will fit you too! ๐Ÿ™‚ I got the green in Large and it’s $25!

#4 At-home mani tip: donโ€™t use old polish! I replace my bottle of top coat every 6 months or so. No matter what brand you use, old goopy polish takes longer to dry and will cause you to wake up with that โ€œsheet printโ€ on your nails.

Do yourself a favor and get some fresh polish each season. My favorite brands are Sally Hansen top coats (less than $4 at Target!) and OPI base coats (around $4 at TJ Maxx!).

#5 Out of Office! This is about to be my view – we head to Disney World this weekend! I am so looking forward to time away. We went to Disney 5 years ago, and that was the last time we had a real vacation (not one tacked on to a work trip, although those are fun too) with just the two of us.

I have posts scheduled like usual for MWF next week, so things won’t look any different on the blog. You can follow our vacation adventures on Instagram!

Have a great weekend!ย

  1. I’m also on the hunt for a cute Fall/rain jacket. I tried on one from the Time and Tru line at Walmart, but it was too shiny for my taste. So the search continues! Hope I can find a cute one like yours ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Have a wonderful trip, Whitney! I’m so excited for you, we were there this past May, you will have a joyous time. I loved the ‘Happily Ever After’ fireworks show at the castle, the story really spoke to my heart ๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŽ†๐Ÿ’™.

    Side note: this past year’s disney trip is how I found your YT channel last year as I began planning for our trip. I viewed your very helpful disney park bag video!
