Friday Favorites No. 9: Life Hack Edition

Friday Favorites / Friday, August 10th, 2018

This week’s Friday Favorites is a roundup of things that just make life easier – I call it the life hack edition. Maybe they’re not all “hacks” in the traditional sense of the word, but I’m a fan of finding a work around where I can. From easier ways to stay cool with a fun hairdo to reducing the time I spend in my closet trying to decide what to wear. An easy list of travel must dos and an easier way to just say no (I can’t say that without being reminded of all those D.A.R.E. programs we sat through as kids).

Tell me some ways you’re making it easier on yourself! Let’s face it, adulting is no joke. I’d love to know how you manage your time better or ways that you’ve organized your closet. Anything! Comment below and let’s discuss. I’m in a work smarter, not harder mood. TGIF!

3 Braided Hairstyles Perfect for Summer

I’m thinking summer and also year round. I get tired of wearing my hair the same way every day and a braid always makes me feel youthful and feminine. These styles look like I could actually master them (maybe).

Style Hack

Straw Bags and the Best Ways to Wear Them

I’m not ready to pack my straw bags away for the season. We have hot weather for a couple more months and these are just too fun. I also think straw bags go with everything so that’s one less style choice you have to worry about.

Ultimate Paris Bucket List

Because Paris is always a good idea. A list of must dos has me ready to fly!

The Art of the Polite Decline

Politely saying no is something I struggle with. Even though we don’t owe anyone an explanation, this is so much easier said than done. I enjoyed reading the author’s take on it.

Coffee Hack

Starbucks Hacks

How did I not know there is a “short” size? Now the “tall” makes sense!

Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Have a fabulous weekend! I’m leaving you with this gorgeous shot I took in Santorini last year. I could go back at any second of any day for the rest of my life. I’m convinced that Greece should just translate to Gorgeous!

  1. The Art of the Polite Decline is definitely something I am going to give a read. Honestly, I have no issue saying no, but I’ve had a few people in my life say that it can come off quite brash and I have been trying to work on that.

    Thanks for sharing! x
