Friday Favorites (December 18, 2020)

I haven’t written a Friday Favorites post in a little while, so thought I’d share a few things I’m loving lately on this Friday before Christmas. (Speaking of…HOW is it just a week until Christmas? Crazy.)

I’m currently in the “I have most things purchased but haven’t packed a thing” stage of holiday prep. What about you?

Okay, let’s move on to some favorites (in no particular order)…


I’ve shared about Force of Nature before, but it’s worth bringing up again. This multi-purpose cleaner is suuuuper safe (it’a made with just water, salt, and vinegar), and yet also incredibly effective against germs (it is EPA approved for use against COVID-19, and kills 99.9% of germs with zero toxic chemicals). We’ve enjoyed using it at our house for a few months now, and I know I’ll continue to love it to clean up messes around the new baby without thinking twice about whether he can touch the surfaces after they’ve been cleaned with Force of Nature.

I wanted to include Force of Nature in today’s Friday Favorites, too, because right now you can save $20 on value bundles and get free shipping with the code PERFECTGIFT20 at checkout! Such a good deal. (You can read this blog post I wrote a few months ago with some other ways we’ve been taking baby steps to create a healthier home. It’s definitely all a process!)


This product has been a lifesaver during my pregnancy. I’m at the point where it’s hard to drink enough water (or, often, eat enough) because my stomach starts to feel full and uncomfortable SO quickly. This little guy sure is taking up lots of room in there! But I can add a stick of Liquid IV to my water once a day and know that I’m getting lots more hydration than I would be with just water on its own — and I don’t have to drink quite as much, either. GAME CHANGER. I’ve tried Passion Fruit, Strawberry, and Guava so far and like them all, with Passion Fruit being my favorite (and Kevin’s).


I recently learned that Kevin has NEVER seen the movie Selena, and my mind was blown. I loved it as a kid, and am now also enjoying the longer-form Netflix series. (Anyone else?) It’s been fun getting more of a deep-dive into Selena and the Quintanilla family as a whole, learning about their journey to success and all the work it took along the way. I also like that Selena’s sister, Suzette, is an executive producer for the show, which makes me think it’s likely pretty close to reality in many ways.


I grabbed a pair of these booties while they were on sale for Cyber Monday, and I’m SO happy with my purchase! These are like slippers you can wear outside of the house (JUST what I was looking for) and are so warm and cozy. (I also love that they’re waterproof.) I sized up a full size and love the fit!


Speaking of slippers…I received these as a gift from my friend and Beautycounter mentor, Teri, and am living in them. I’m so pleasantly surprised at how warm they are without socks even with the open toe. They’re soooo cozy and I appreciate the hard sole for a bit more support.


These have been a favorite mid-afternoon snack of mine lately. I’ve loved digestives for years, but we VERY rarely buy them. I saw them at Fresh Market recently, though, and grabbed a box on a whim. Turns out they absolutely hit the spot for me these days. Two biscuits paired with a cup of decaf English Breakfast tea is just about perfect in my book!

What are a few things you’ve been enjoying lately? Hope you have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend!
