Friday Favorites | 5 Links and 5 Things I'm Loving

Happy Friday friends!  We had the most beautiful week here in Boston with the weather cooperating every single day and I was happy to take my gym sessions from inside to outside. The nice weather also helped the week fly by and I'm ready to enjoy the weekend! Sharing my favorites in a different layout with 5 things I'm loving & 5 links I loved reading this week, still linking up with Amanda


5 Things//

1. My sister treated me to this whipped argan oil face butter by Josie Maran and the name says it all - it's like buttah! It glides onto your face and isn't sticky or heavy! When you wake up in the morning the product has sunk in, but your skin feels smoother. Loving it! 
2. Tis the season for guacamole - eh never mind - every season is guac season, but this avocado slicer just made it 10 times easier! I totally get that this kitchen tool is not needed in the least, but I can't tell you how much better my avocado game has been since Gary (yes add this to the list of fun items he's bought me) surprised me with this little tool! #GameChanger
3. If you follow me on snapchat (@blovedboston) then you may have seen my favorite chips ever. I don't take that statement lightly - these are smoked gouda flavored cape cod chips - yep deliciousness!! Gary bought us two bags because they are a limited batch and well we already went through one bag! P.S. we've probably gone through at least 2 bags prior to this...

4. I haven't been able to wear heavy earrings for quite some time - my left earring hole seems to have stretched from years of wearing really long / heavy earrings - so studs and smaller earrings have been my best friend. I recently bought these Tory Burch Logo Studs and I love them so much!! They are so similar to a pair I lost a couple years ago! Also, if you have the same stretchy earring hole problem as me - have you tried these? If so, do they work?
5. Polar Seltzer Limited Edition Summer Waters came out a few weeks ago and my favorite flavor by far is the raspberry pink lemonade. They are similar to La Croix waters, but if you're looking for some fun new flavors these are perfect for summer soirees!

  1. That face butter sounds amazing! I'm struggling to find a nice face cream at the moment- they all seem to leave my skin feeling sticky and sweaty rather than smooth and soft, so I'll have to keep an eye out for this one.
    Have a great weekend!

  8. Yum those chips sound amazing!! Cape Cod definitely makes the best chips but I've never had the gouda flavor before so I'll definitely have to buy them the next time I see them!

  9. That took for guacamole is genius! I love kitchen gadgets! I am the same way with earrings, my ears cannot take big dangly earrings anymore so I'm all about cute studs

  10. Happy Friday friend! I don't know about the Lobe Wonders you linked, but I but Bling Guard for HSN and they are great! We also recently brought in Levears, and though they are a little more pricy (I have the sterling silver ones) I wear them EVERY day and they make my ears so much better!

  11. I love those earrings! And I'm totally planning on trying the pink drink from Starbucks this weekend. I hear it's absolutely delicious!

  13. I use Josie Maran argan oil every night and I swear by it--I'll have to give this moisturizer a try! And now I'm super tempted to run out and try that Starbucks pink drink--looks kind of like Pepto Bismol...but in a good way haha. Happy Friday girl!

  23. I've been loving seltzer water lately too. I got some La Croix Kiwi Watermelon ones this week and am eager to try them! Love the studs you got, and those chips sound amazing! I need to find these!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I NEED to try the pink drink and the gouda chips! Those are my favorite chips, but add smoked gouda and they sound ridiculous! Gary buys some seriously quality gifts! I'm using a different argan moisturizer right now, but you have me completely sold on this one! Hope you have a great weekend! XO

  25. I've been eyeing up a pair of Tory earrings for a while. Those are super cute.

  27. Love those TB earrings. I have been wearing my studs more and more. The weather has simply been amazing here. Let's hope it stays that way. We know it could change at any second, haha. Great links this week! Have a wonderful weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  28. And now I need an avocado slicer right now. Haha. Those earrings are beautiful!! I love the color of them!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Happy Friday! You always have such great finds. I'm going to look into that argan face butter. I usually use DermOrganics argan oil but it leaves my face very greasy in the morning. Yes, every season is avocado season! Have a great weekend xo Beautifully Candid

  30. That avocado slicer is genius, I need one! You know, it can be a hit or miss with these kind of hacks. I got a little avocado shaped container that was supposed to keep them from going bad and it didn't work at all :( This, seems so practical though, I need to keep an eye out for it! Also, those Seltzer waters sound amazing, I need to give them a try! I loved Anna With Love's home office, the colors are SO pretty and I adore the decor! I seriously laughed about the whole Taylor Swift situation. They ARE human, so it shouldn't be surprising, yet I must admit it is, haha! Let's expect a new album out soon, haha! Thanks for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  35. Totally agree, it's always guacamole season! Those smoked gouda chips look so delicious! I'll have to see if I can find them near me! I also love those Tory studs! I have the same problem with wearing too heavy of earrings for so long.

    ReplyDelete
  36. The pink drink from starbucks just does not sound like something that would be good, buut at the same time I'm tempted to try it because everyone keeps raving about it. Sparkling raspberry lemonade sounds delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm dying to try the Starbucks Pink Drink :)

  50. I need that avocado slicer! That's awesome! I saw your snap of the chips..I love that brand, so I have to find the gouda ones and try them, sound yummy! Enjoy your weekend girl!

  51. Oh I'll have to try those seltzers! I usually stick to lemon and cranberry lime, but those look yummy!

  52. Love those earrings, I've never been a big fan of dangling earrings because I'd always get them caught, and now with Sophie they just get in the way, but those look good the supports.

    The pink drink from starbucks definitely looks worth it, haven't gotten it yet though.

  54. I cant wear heavy earrings either because of a stretched hole. Sometimes I think of having it stitched up (that's a thing apparently) but I am so fearful of doctors that I put it off. I need to know more about that avocado slicer!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Studs are always my favorite - so comfortable and cute! Love those Tory ones!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I will be purchasing those chips this weekend! Loving those Tory studs! Have a great weekend!

  57. OMG someone bought me that avocado tool as part of my wedding gift and I'll be honest I haven't used it since I thought was a little unnecessary. But, after hearing you rave about it...I think I'll pull it out of my drawer! Ha

    Have a great weekend! :)

  58. Awww I miss Polar seltzers and that big Polar bear at the bottom of the hill in Worcester :) That avocado slicer looks so cool. I saw that on an episode of The Kitchen on Food Network, and I've been intrigued ever since! Have a great weekend.

  60. Umm, those Cape Cod chips sound amazing! BRB, heading to the store to try to find some! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  61. That avocado slicer is genius because of how tricky they are to cut open and de-seed. I will have to get one myself b/c I love to put sliced avocado on salads or even for breakfast. Smoked Gouda chips? Those sound delicious and I somehow missed your snap about it.

    ReplyDelete
  62. i have the same avocado tool and it's so good. i use it all the time! yessss to summer polar flavors!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I was going to get that pink drink at Starbucks this week but it's only available after 3 pm. :-/ That face butter sounds amazing too. I hope that you had a good week and have a fab weekend!! :-)

  64. I'm loving the Polar flavors right now too- my fave is Watermelon Margarita, but the Lemonade is a close second :)Happy weekend!

  66. Those chips... NEED to try them! Or maybe I shouldn't... haha. :) Cape Cod chips are the only chips I can't say no to. I would love to try those waters too. I'm HOOKED on La Croix, but maybe I need to switch things up a bit. Have a great weekend!

  74. I'm terrible at cutting up an avocado so I'm definitely adding that to my amazon wishlist! I've got to try this pink drink I've been hearing about!!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. So many great things in this post, thank you so much. The number one thing I need to try and buy are those ear lobes because my ear lobes have stretched badly. Also, those waters sound great. The raspberry lemonade would probably be my favorite. And now you got me really interested in trying the Pink Drink from Starbucks too.
