Friday Favorites No. 64

Happy Friday! Whew, once again we made it to the weekend! I’m excited to share with you some of my Friday Favorites here below! Enjoy!

Did you ever watch Samantha Brown as a kid? My dad would always let me know when she was on the travel channel and I would tune in! She gave me a love for exploring and travel. And do you know what?! She has a new show titled Samantha Brown Places to Love and I LOVE it! Not only do I love it but Caroline has been enjoying it with me too! What a fun way to spend time together learning about cultures, the world, and relaxing. We’ve been watching on YouTube but you can catch Samantha Brown Places to Love on PBS too!


We loved Caroline’s birthday weekend! It was so much fun! You check out some of what we did here!

You guys, I have always loved Aquaphor but recently I have been using it on my face around my eyes and it feels heavenly. I don’t if it’s good or bad for me but it just feels right so I’m going with it. I should probably do a little research on this lol!

I went to Walmart the other day and found some really cute finds. But some of my favorite items are from the brand Joyspun. This line of pajamas and loungewear is some of the softest stuff out there for so so cheap! I grabbed a couple items and have loved putting them on a night after my shower!

Aw you guys, I have to share this one…I have LOVED blogging again. I’m not 100% sure where I want this blog to go…I’m leaning toward travel but I also really like writing about everyday life and things like such. Maybe it should just be a combination of both. Who says niches are the only way to go? lol! All that aside I have enjoyed getting back into being a storyteller of our family. I may not be the best writer or storyteller but I sure do have fun doing both, so I’m going with it!

That is going to wrap up Friday Favorites today! Go check our Samantha Brown Places to Love PBS! I think you will love it too!

    Happy birthday to Caroline! It sounds like a fun weekend.
    Those pajamas are so cute.
    I have always found it so hard to stick to one niche of blogging. I just write about what I fancy. x
