Hello, friends! It’s been a while! I haven’t really had enough discoveries worth making a full Friday Finds post until recently, so here we are back at it! I hope that you’ve been enjoying your summer so far — it’s been a relatively slow one for us lately, but we have travel coming up in almost every month in the remainder of this year! We’ll be visiting my sister-in-law and her boyfriend in Maine for the 4th of July and I couldn’t be more excited! We love visiting them, and it will be my first time in Maine during the summertime. (I am just assuming that it’s just going to be super humid and full of insects; please correct me if I’m wrong?!)
Here are some of my favorite finds from recent weeks:
Silicone AirPod Case: I love having a little bit of protection on all of my technology products, and when I got my AirPods I knew I was going to want a cover for the charging case! This grippy little silicone sleeve for the AirPods case not only provides a little buffer protection (for potential drops or jostling around inside a bag), but it also keeps the surface scratch-free!
Smart Sweets: If you’ve been here for a little while, you know that I am participating in Weight Watchers and I am always on the hunt for tasty recipes as well as snacks that are low in SmartPoints! I discovered these treats at my local smoothie shop and had to try them. They’re fiber-based instead of being sugar-based and I was actually surprised at how tasty they are. The whole bag only costs 1SP, which is pretty amazing to me.
Necklet: I typically only wear one necklace at a time, but I think this clasp is so clever! You can link up to three necklaces at a time in order to (a) to keep them from getting tangled, and (b) make two or three separate necklaces behave like a set. Pretty cool!
Blanquil Chill: I have to say that we already have an incredible down comforter on our bed (from Feathered Friends, if you’re in the market), but in the summer it definitely keeps us warmer than we’d like. I’ve always been really intrigued by the comfort of weighted blankets, but didn’t want to roast under one or buy one that couldn’t be laundered. The Blanquil Chill has an outer cover that CAN be machine washed and it [allegedly] keeps you cool — I’ve gotta admit that my interest is pretty piqued! It’s a little pricey at just under $300, but it seems like it would be worth the investment if it delivers on its promise.
Lululemon Self Care: I am amazed by this line of unisex body care products made with ingredients that you can feel good about! Dry Shampoo, Deodorant (Aloe OR Sandalwood scent), Face Moisturizer, and Lip Balm, all brought to you by the team of geniuses at lululemon! Not only do the products come in both full and travel sizes, but the containers are made with lock-tops and leakproof seals so that you have one less thing to worry about.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite: I grew up loving the Harry Potter books (like, the kind of love that quantifies getting dressed up and waiting in line for book releases at Barnes & Noble). Beyond the novels, I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the movies and everything post that I have read on The Leaky Cauldron as well as on MuggleNet. I’ve also really loved Pottermore because the magical world was so hard for me to let go of! I downloaded the interactive smartphone app game this morning and it’s been pretty fun so far. If you’re interested, I recommend that you give it a go!
I hope that you have an amazing Independence Day!
