Friday Favorites

It's Fridayyyyy! And thank goodness for that, what a week.

I'm excited to bring you a batch of my favorites from this week!
Please know, this post is in no way sponsored by any of these products. I just really, really like them ;)

+ Spring Things
I found these flowers while I was aimlessly wondering around the store the other day and couldn't help but buy them. I know it isn't officially Spring yet, but it might as well be in Florida. It has been absolutely gorgeous out and I plan on spending my afternoon, post work/pre-Abigail pick up at the pool.

So we got rid of cable. And up until we actually did it, the thought of cancelling it gave me heart palpitations. I watch an insane amount of shows on a regular basis and like to have the TV on in the background all the time, just for the noise, so I never thought it would possible to completely get rid of it. And then our service provider shot our bill up to an absolutely insane amount, I got frustrated and decided to just squash it all together. I ordered the Fire Stick, set it all up and I have been kicking myself ever since thinking about how much money I have wasted by paying for cable all this time. Here's the thing, I don't really watch anything in real time anymore (except for the Bachelor, which only has one episode left this season; stop judging) . I record everything and watch it later. We have Hulu and Netflix subscriptions which air all of the shows I watch and I play a lot more music during the day than I do TV. If you've been thinking of cancelling cable, DO IT. I swear, I never thought I could but I did and don't regret it one bit.


For the past like 3 years my sister and I have been taking turns stealing my parents vacuum. And for the past 3 Christmases, my mom has refused to buy us vacuums no matter how many times we asked, because one of us always had hers. It started to become a big joke and then a couple weeks ago, my sister bought a vacuum. And then I felt like I needed to buy a vacuum, so I could give my mom hers back, so I did. And holy crap I love this vacuum! It's cordless, it swivels, and it has the best suction. I feel like such a loser being THIS excited over a vacuum, but goodness, it's great. And it was super affordable (we used a coupon, too)!

Handy is an app on your phone (I have an iPhone, but I'm almost positive it's on Android as well) that I describe as 'Uber for your house'. Backstory: When we were moving out of our old place, I wanted to find a cleaning company to do a move out clean, but didn't want to spend a fortune. I checked Groupon, Facebook and everyone was quoting me $350 or more. And then I found this app. They offer a lot more than just cleaning services, but I can only attest to that, but it ended up working out SO well!
You go through and personalize what you are looking for. You chose how many bedrooms, how many bathrooms, your location and if you want any add-on items (inside cabinets, inside oven, inside fridge, etc). We ended up adding on all of the extras, since we were moving out. They do cost a bit extra for each add on, but I can tell you that for the entire clean, we only paid $95! As the day approached for our cleaning, I received a text from our assigned cleaner and on the day of, the app communicates with you to tell you where your cleaner is, when they will be there , etc. You do everything through the app so you never deal with cash (tip included, all through the app) and if you find a cleaner that you like, you can request them each time.
If you're interested, leave a comment below and I will send you a referral for $10 off your first service (and if you're local, I'll give you the name of our cleaner, who was fantastic!). 

The facemasks of all facemasks. Seriously, when you put this stuff on, you can FEEL the crap being sucked out of your face. It is all natural, organic and cruelty free and it really is the best mask I've ever used. The best part is, it's super affordable!

+ Suja Juice
I love, love, love cold pressed juice but we don't have any juice bars in a our area so I am always on the hunt for good bottled juice. I'll be honest, I've tried a lot of bottled juices and I don't enjoy most of them but after I picked this one up at the store this week, I fell in love! Beets are my favorite and this one even has bananas in it, which I loathe, but don't mind in this! At four bucks a pop, I won't be drinking them everyday, but glad I've finally found one that I really love!

I hope you all have a great weekend! I am not sure what ours entails yet, but I know it will include a lot of sunshine!
