Out of the Office

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday everyone!

I have officially survived my first week back from vacation and am beyond ready for the weekend.
This post features a random collection of things I’m loving this week, hope you enjoy.

  • Heliocare

Guys, this stuff if life-changing. It is basically sunscreen in pill form. Sun damage is the #1 cause of wrinkles and skin cancer and while I use a daily moisturizer with SPF, it does wear off by the end of the day. Heliocare protects your skin from the inside out against uva and uvb rays, amazing.


  • Koffie straw

Thanks to awful reflux I limit myself to one cup of coffee a day. Somehow this one cup is STILL enough to stain my teeth horribly. I discovered these reusable silicone coffee straws and fell in love instantly. Highly recommend.


  • Leather jackets

I’ve been terribly confused about what to wear with this in-between weather. I find myself freezing on the way to work and sweating on the way home from work. I own an embarrassing amount of leather jackets so now is my chance to layer! I may have also just bought this faux-leather drape-front jacket for only $30, how could I say no?!


  • Donating clothes

My personal rule is I’m not allowed to buy more hangers: if I want to buy new clothes I have to donate old ones. This past week I went through and donated anything I hadn’t worn in the past year. I found this extremely difficult as I get very attached to my clothes but wow does it feel good to get rid of clutter! I did want to get rid of some items that were in better condition, and for these I opted for a sell-by-mail consignment store called Crossroads Trading. There’s an option to donate the clothes if they don’t sell which is perfect for someone trying to make room in their closet and hoping to make some extra money if possible.


  • Laser hair removal

As a dedicated waxer for the past few years I got fed up with the expense and decided to try a Groupon for Laser MD medspa. After 6-8 treatments I may never have to shave again! Granted, I’ve only had one treatment so far so tbd if this will really work for me. But wow this seems like such a better investment for my money, especially using the Groupon. Has anyone else tried laser hair removal and liked or disliked the experience?

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
