Random Friday Favorites | Things I’ve Been Loving Lately #30

Happy Friday ♥

I hope you all had an awesome week and are looking toward and even more awesome weekend. It rained this past week which put me in the mood for “April Showers” as it usually does. It was so nice to sleep to the sound! Sadly, for me, it’s back to clear skies and sunshine here in California so the rain was seriously short-lived, but if any of you guys in other states feel like sending me water rations, that would be great because we’re in a serious drought. Otherwise, a few prayers for rain toward my way would be much appreciated! Anyway, this week has been fairly mellow, thankfully. I spent most of my week meal prepping and trying to stay on track with healthy eating. I was fairly successful except for a stint on Tuesday when I went to see Insurgent in the theaters and ate some popcorn and Sour Patch Kids so I’m happy about that. Also, I’ve worked out several times this week, worked to get in more steps with my FitBit Flex as my boyfriend now has one and we’ve become pretty competitive about it. Anyway, so that’s this week’s RFF theme: April Showers ♥


 April Showers ♥

  • Indah Organics Coconut Tea | This unique coconut tea from the Seed to Serum shop looks amazing!  If you’re unfamiliar, STS used to just be a blog ran by the lovely Megan, but she gained so much credibility and recognition in the green beauty community that she opened up a natural beauty shop on her site. It’s got some lovely and unique beauty and wellness items on it that you won’t see anywhere else online!
  • Transparent Jelly Rain Boots | I’m loving the look of colorful socks + transparent rain boots! Isn’t it cute?! It reminds me of being a kid and being obsessed with wearing jelly sandals, only in the rain.
  • Rain Drops Wall Decal | I love the idea of decals and I’m obsessed with rain so this one is right up my alley!
  • Soul Sunday Bougie Face Oil | This is a green beauty brand I’ve never heard of, but I love the smart packaging they’ve used for this face/eye oil and the ingredients that promise to give skin a glow sound perfect for spring!
  • Dreamcatcher Handmade Soap | I’m a sucker for organic, beautifully crafted handmade soap and this one fits the bill perfectly!
  • Glitter Stud Earrings | These look like Kate Spade earrings only much, much cheaper. Did I mention I’m all about that sale? LOL.
  • Kester Black Nail Polish in Bubblegum | I’m not too familiar with KB nail polishes, but I keep seeing them all over instagram so I know they must be pretty good. I love this color for spring and summer! It would look so springtime pretty with a pink or purple and more summer with teal or deep blue, no?
  • Floral Leather Makeup Bag | I’ve been needing a new makeup bag for ages and I’m loving florals at the moment! Also, this bag from YEAH BUNNY is super cute also! Which do you think I should get?
  • Lemongrass & Basil Linen Spray | Room and linen sprays are having a moment with me! I love the idea of using essential oils and floral waters to freshen up your linen, rooms, and brighten your mood.

    Those rain boots are so fun! And I’m a total tea addict so I’m checking out that Indah Organics tea. Also, you’ve totally got me in the mood for Sour Patch Kids and to go see Insurgent now! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great weekend! 🙂

      I know – I love the way they used colorful socks with them too! Yess I love tea also 😀 I’ve never even heard of coconut tea, but it sounds delicious no? Haha yeah honestly Insurgent was better than the first one, but having read the books, it was still kind of disappointing. :/ Should’ve gone to see Furious 7 instead! lol .Sour Patch were good though 😛 have a nice weekend as well Jessica ♥

    I LOVE that used a theme for your favorites!! The clear rain boots look so cute.

    1. April 14, 2015 at 4:08 PM

      thanks Meagan! Glad you like it 🙂 I prefer themes to no themes haha. I find it more fun to do the post if it’s themed. Geeky, yes, but necessary 😛

    The Transparent Jelly Rain Boots are Awesome! I would love if they had a knee high style. (these are much cooler than the jelly shoes I wore when I was a kid.)
