Happy Friday and welcome to the (almost) weekend! While I definitely didn’t get as much accomplished as I would have liked, it was a pretty good week nonetheless.

This weekend I’m looking forward to date night with my boyfriend, working from a coffee shop to get some work done (I’m been so distracted working from home the last few days), and making some sweet potato treats for my boyfriend’s Bulldog. It should be a fun weekend!

It’s Friday so that means that it’s time to share some of my favorite things from the past week. Here they are!

Influencer by Brittany Hennessy

I finished listening to this audiobook on Monday and I really enjoyed listening to it. If you’re a fellow blogger or have a following on social media and want a refresher or to learn more about the basics of being an influencer, be sure to check out Influencer (affiliate link).

Brittany gives a no nonsense approach to creating a following online and how to monetize it without being sales-y about it. She’s in a unique position to share both sides of the equation, both on the brand side and the influencer side.

She has lots of great information to share and I highly recommend you check it out even if you think you know all there is to know about making money online as an influencer. It’s such an ever changing space and it can be tough to keep up with the newest info.

Tip for listening to audiobooks: I always speed it up to 1.25x. I get through the book a bit easier but it’s still easy to listen to and I don’t miss anything. It honestly doesn’t even sound that much different either.

Loreal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara

I bought this mascara over the weekend on Amazon and it arrived a few days ago. I’ve work it a twice since then and I’m really liking it. I absolutely hate mascara that gets clumpy, and Loreal Voluminous Paradise mascara (affiliate link) isn’t clumpy at all.

I went with the blackest black color, but they also have a few other options available. I really like the brush and I feel like I can get into the corners of my eyes to get those little lashes without getting mascara all over the place.

If you’re looking for a new go to mascara for an every day look definitely check out this one (affiliate link) – I really like it.

And on that note I hope you all have a great weekend! I’ll see you back here tomorrow for a recap of my workouts and meals this week.

This Is Us on Netflix

I’m a huge fan of This Is Us. Netflix has spoiled me in terms of being able to watch shows and movies on demand. As a result, I’m terrible at remembering to watch stuff when it’s on TV. I probably only watched one out of 3 episodes of season 3 of This Is Us last year when it was on TV. I’m so grateful that it’s on Netflix now and I’ve been watching up on it. Last weekend I started season 3 and I’m already 5 or 6 episodes into it. I just can’t stop watching!

If you somehow haven’t seen This Is Us yet, it follows a family of a husband, wife, and a set of triplets. There are a few timelines that each episode jumps through. At first it was a bit confusing, but I love how the story of each character is told throughout time and from each person’s perspective.
