Random Friday Favorites | Things I’ve Been Loving Lately #44

Happy Friday Lovelies ♥

I hope you’ve all had a great week! I’ve just finished my second week of boot camp and it is kicking my ass. Seriously, I think I almost died on Wednesday haha. Anyhow, this weekend, I’m excited to get in some swimming, relax at home, grill some food, and possibly go to Lush. I’ve run out of some of my favorites so there’s that. What do you have planned for the weekend? Anything exciting? This week’s RFF’s are all about staying cool both in the literal and figurative sense 😉

Stay Cool ♥


Be the Person Your Dog Thinks You Are Pouch | I thought this little pouch was super cute! Perfect for weekend traveling, a makeup pouch for your purse, or maybe just keeping bits and bobs for your gym bag.

Black Triangle String Bikini | Who says string bikinis require 0% body fat? You can have curves, be thin, or whatever you like and still wear one.

Pacifica Underarm Deodorant Wipes | These deodorant wipes are AMAZING. I have shared them tons of times all over my instagram because they’re lifesavers on hot days or when I’m at work where there is no A/C.

ILIA Lipstick in Shell Shock | This is one of my favorite lip colors for summer because it’s so bright, pretty and wearable. You can have any skin tone or complexion and it looks good on pretty much everyone, in my opinion. Plus, the organic plant formula includes balms and oils to help soften, nourish and hydrate lips all day long.

TN Botanicals Antioxidant Rich Pacific Mist | This face mist has been my go-to all summer long. I’ve tried others, but I keep coming back to this. The antioxidant plant ingredients, aloe, and tea extracts are wonderful for calming any redness, perfect for after-sun relief, and can even calm sunburns. I use this every morning and night, sometimes more when it’s particularly hot out! In general, I’ve been obsessed with TN Botanicals Pacific Skincare line so if you haven’t tried it yet, you really ought to! I’ve loved every single product in the collection.

Kypris Beauty Antioxidant Dew Serum | I reviewed a number of lovely Kypris Beauty serums last fall and this serum was among them. Even though it’s called a serum, it feels a lot more like a gel. I loved it for how cooling it felt on my skin which makes it brilliant for hot days. The antioxidants are added protection against aging UV rays and the serum is super light on the skin and absorbs right away.

Olivine Love + Salt Spray | I first tried this back in January and just re-purchased because it’s that brilliant! You can use this as a face and body mist, but I mainly use it to get soft beach waves in my hair. The scent is deliciously tropical and super gentle and moisturizing. Unlike some salt sprays, it doesn’t dry your hair out or make it feel crunchy. Plus, you get a LOT for the price and it lasts ages!

Flynn Skye Wrap It Up Skirt | I’m loving anything wrapped, at the moment, and this skirt is just perfect for brunch or casual dinners out. I love Flynn Skye and this particular piece is so pretty and easy to wear.

COOLA Sport Spray SPF30 in Tropical Coconut | I have loved Coola Sport Spray sun care products for years now, but their latest scent release in Tropical Coconut is, by far, my favorite! You can spray these on so easy before swimming or at the beach and it’s so effortless. I’m all about that. I picked mine up at Sephora which now stocks a number of green beauty picks from Coola to Kari Gran Lip Whips (what?!)!

Rip Curl Pineapple Beach Bag | Who isn’t obsessed with pineapple? I’m like pineapple everything at the moment and this beach bag is so cute! It’s also extremely affordable at only $24 – sold!

Giddy Black Leather Pointy Toe Pumps | These gorgeous pumps come in black, red, and beige. I love the black ones for nights out on the town and the beige ones for summer days. This style of pump is so pretty and wearable for anyone, in my opinion. Since they come in at only $99 a pair, I think I need one in every color 😛
