Friday Favorites #68.

I am super excited today, y'all.  All Etsy orders have shipped so I am finally on VACATION!  Whoop whoop!!  We are in full beach prep mode so I'll be spending a lot of time this weekend making lists, shopping for all those last minute things, organizing, and packing before we head out next week!

If you want to check out our vacay from last year you can find it HERE.  We had the best time!

I can't wait to stick my toes in the sand!

I'll be taking next week off from blogging but you can follow our fun on Instagram @amandanall and I'll probably be posting when I find those good deals over in the Facebook group too.

But I am sharing my favorites today and linking up with my sweet friends Erika, Narci and Andrea!

So let's get started!

I pulled this straight out of the shower with me last night to snap a pic because while I was washing my hair I kept thinking "I HAVE to mention this again on the blog tomorrow.  It is a total hair-changer."

Like I said, I've mentioned it before but I had to mention it again.  I mean, if you haven't tried it yet, then you still clearly need some convincing.  ;)  And if you have, you are probably giving it some hallelujah hands right about now.  Because it's THAT GOOD.

Don't let the "sleek" part scare you off if you like your waves/curls.  It's not just for straight hair.  It just helps seal your cuticles and give you softness and shine.  Plus it smells good.

The best deal I could find for these was on Amazon and they have them in a set in these big bottles.  I love that this feels like salon quality shampoo/conditioner but without the crazy cost.  I thought nothing would top my Moroccan Oil.  ;)

I know I also mentioned these last week too but I'm still loving them! 

These shorts have been on REPEAT all week long.  They are crazy comfortable and super cute with a tee.  I even ordered one more pair so now I have three.  They are on major rotation.  The pink ones are on sale for $12 right now too.

One of my favorite Amazon finds for sure!  And they were on Jane the other day as well so I'll keep my eye out and let you know over in the FB group if they come back there!

Oh my gosh.  Did y'all watch this week's episode of Real Housewives of Orange County?!  Holy freakin cow.  It was the funniest episode they've ever had! I've watched it three times now and just cannot stop laughing!!

Between everyone falling down, Tamra's naked hot tub antics, Shannon and her multiple bras and Spanx, and Vicki's face after Shannon kisses her...  I laugh just thinking about it.

Those girls WHOOPED. IT. UP.

See all those boxes?  All of them (except for the bottom two--those are cups for my shop) are RETURNS to Nordstrom!  When I placed my original order on the first morning of the sale, it all came back showing as cancelled the next day.  Ugh.  So I reordered everything because most of it was still showing as available.  And then some of those things shipped and some got cancelled.  So I re-ordered those things AGAIN.  You get the drift.

And then, of course, almost all of the things from my original order started shipping.  Soooo...NOT cancelled.  #thanksnordstrom  And I ended up with triplicates of several things.

My returns went back this week which kind of made me happy to know that there were probably people out there stalking the sale trying to get their top picks the second they came back in stock.  ;)

I found so many great things in the sale.  Here are a few of my favorites.  The sale ends SUNDAY, friends!  So be sure to check back often for your favorites!  I'm sure there are others like me who are returning things this week!

Scroll/click through below for my favorites!

I posted my July Book Review on Wednesday, so if you missed it, go back and check it out!

I also gave my thoughts on Kindle Unlimited and speaking of...I just grabbed a new book on KU that has amazing reviews, is supposed to be hysterical AND is a romance!  The BEST kind of chick lit!

It's called Big Sexy Love and I'm saving it for the beach.  

It doesn't have an audiobook version which is a bummer because I love how easy it is to switch from audio to Kindle whenever I want with KU.  But it'll be a great beach read.

I also managed to get myself an advanced copy of the new book An Anonymous Girl that was written by the authors of my favorite thriller ever, The Wife Between Us.

So this is also on my reading list for next week!  I'm trying not to get too excited about it because it has a LOT to live up to.  So we'll see!  I'll have in my August review!

And at the moment I'm reading/listening to Small Town Rumors...also from Kindle Unlimited.  (I love all these free books!)  

Also, THANK YOU for all the book suggestions on my Facebook post the other day!  I have a huge list going and I've added them all.

Have a great weekend and week, friends!

Also linking up with the High Five for Friday girls!

    Is the shampoo/conditioner for color treated hair? I have highlights, and don't want to turn brassy:) BUT am in desperate need for a new shampoo to use. Thanks, Sara

    1. It says it's suitable for color-treated hair! Me (and most of my friends who use it) all have highlights too and I haven't noticed any brassiness from it. :)

      Thank you!! Enjoy your vacation!

  5. Have a great time at the beach! Which one are you heading to? We leave for Destin a week from today, and I'm so excited! I'm going to check out the book Big Sexy Love, and you're right that An Anonymous Girl has a lot to live up to because The Wife Between Us was SOOO GOOD! Can't wait to hear what you think of it.

    1. Orange Beach! But I love Destin too!! Have fun!!

  6. I need to try that shampoo! I hope y'all have a BLAST on vacation!


I love hearing from you! Drop a comment below!
