Friday Five

Friday Five: Things I Can’t Live Without

This week has been one for the books, full of friends, amazing weather, and productivity. I’ve been to the beach most days and nights, which I can’t complain about and got to celebrate my friend’s quarantine birthday. It really is starting to feel like there is a light at the end of the tunnel with all of this. It’s blowing my mind that this weekend is Memorial Day Weekend, time is seriously flying this year.

With each week being pretty insanely different from the last, I thought it would be fun to put together my Friday Five. Each week I’ll be sharing 5 things that I would not of been able to survive this week without.


I am so sunburnt. I’ve been complaining about it on Instagram all week and you’re all probably sick of it, but I’m going on my soapbox one more time. I would of died without Aloe this week. I managed to only burn my face, shoulders and 1/2 of my legs, but it’s hand down the second worst burn I’ve gotten in my life. Nothing will compare to the agony of sunburn in Hawaii in 2002.

I’m linking my go-to Aloe lotion here. Banana Boat Aloe Lotion has been a staple in my life since as long as I can remember, but this week I’m more thankful than ever. I’ve never been a fan of the Aloe gel because I think it gets gross and sticky, so the lotion has been my go-to. Regardless, the Aloe lotion has been the biggest life saver so far. The only thing positive about my sunburn fiasco, is that the first burn of the season is done. Guess what? It’ll turn to tan and I won’t burn the rest of the summer. #silverlinings

H&M Sweatshorts

My sunburn is awful and it is painful to put on jeans or leggings, so I’ve been living in my H&M sweatshorts. I’ve been building my collection of these for almost 3 years now and I think I have all the color options possible. They are super light-weight and comfy, so don’t think heavy sweatpants material. Not to mention they are only $12.99, so they don’t break the bank. In my opinion, they’re the perfect lounge short!


Being on the job market during this time is absolutely insane, and I am right in the middle of it. There are millions of people without employment and it’s terrifying to think that there are more layoffs anticipated in the near future. I am so thankful for LinkedIn for being such an incredible social network of professionals. Between the people I have met during my previous jobs or those who have reached out during my current job hunt, it’s been incredible to me to first hand witness people helping people.

I’ve had several interviews this week with some pretty incredible companies and am so optimistic about the future and where I will land. I have to thank LinkedIn for playing a part in keeping up the positive vibes. LinkedIn has become a part of my daily routine, from messaging and speaking with my connections, to applying for jobs, to speaking with recruiters. It is filled with so many individuals who are around to help.

Persona Nutrition

I can’t begin to express how much I love my Persona delivery every month. I just received my May delivery and I fell in love all over again. If you aren’t familiar with Persona Nutrition, it is a subscription service that delivers supplements and vitamins to your door monthly that are personalized for you. You take a quick assessment that asks you pretty basic questions about your health and current state. Within seconds of completion you have a customized nutrition supplement plan. They can also shift the vitamins they send you monthly to help with your goals. You can log onto your portal at any time to add or eliminate supplements, even retake the questionnaire if you’d like.

I have been sleeping much better and my appetite has been under control. So for that, I thank you Persona Nutrition. If you’re thinking about signing up or want to try it out, you can receive $25 off you first month but starting your health assessment here. I believe they are also offering 50% off for new users!


If you didn’t see this one coming, you haven’t been around here long enough and that’s totally ok. I am obsessed with my Ugg Slippers. I wear them everywhere. Did I wear them to the beach every day this week? I absolutely did.

Do you know Ugg Boots were made in Australia by surfers? They were designed to be easy to slip on, warm, and comfy so surfers could throw them on after getting out of the water. So I may have gotten some looks for wearing my slippers at the beach, but that’s the exact place they were designed for!

I put together a few of my favorite Cluggs in a simple store front! If you’re looking for new slippers, a perfect gift for someone, or new outdoor slip-on shoes, then you are in the right place.
