Fall Pillows on Amazon + Other Tidbits

We made it guys! It’s finally Friday and the longest week ever is coming to an end. Just kidding. It wasn’t really the longest week ever, but dang it sure felt like it. My husband’s schedule was super busy this week, so that threw a wrench in everything and made for some reallllllllllly long days here at the homestead. But we survived and it’s almost the weekend. Whoot whoot! Anyway, today I have a super random mix of things to share with you guys for Friday Favorites, including some awesome fall pillows I found on Amazon, a few current skincare favorites, and the most amazing (and affordable) chunky knit throw blanket!

I shared this chunky knit throw blanket in my blog post on Monday, but I wanted to mention it again today because it’s AMAZING. I actually came across this beauty at Target and it was less than $30, which is great for a blanket like this–many similar options are over $100. Target wins again! It’s definitely one to check out if you’re looking for a knit blanket for fall and winter–it comes in several colors too.

A few days ago I ordered the adorable fall pillow cover from Amazon and it came yesterday. It was only $8, but I love it and the quality is surprisingly good for such a low price. I’ll be styling it in a post next week, but I wanted to share it now in case any of you would like to snag it. Here’s a few other fall pillows and covers from I found on Amazon:

New Favorite Skincare Product

Since I stopped nursing about two months ago I feel like my hormones have been in flux and my skin has kinda crazy. I’ve been dealing with super annoying breakouts since early August and they’re just now starting to improve. I started using this acne clearing + tone correcting gel from Tula about two weeks ago now and I love it so much. It’s great becasue it helps with any active breakouts, but it also has some magic in it that brightens dark spots left by old breakouts. Definitely something to look into if you deal with breakouts too. You can see more about it here.  And FYI: my coupon code VINTAGENEST is still good for 20% off on the Tula site.

Currently my skincare routine is super basic. Here’s what I’m using morning + night:

 

Other tidbits from the week:

  • The kids’ beds came in this week and I cannot wait to get them put together and start working on their room. We’re also finalizing plans with our contractor today about putting an extra window in the room the girls will share. It’s super dark now, so I’m really excited get that done. I’ll definitely share more as the whole process moves forward!
  • Lately I’ve been making homemade crockpot applesauce and it’s sooooo darn yummy. It’s one of my favorite things to make for fall! It’s also insanely easy and quick AND it makes your whole house smell amazing. The kids love it too. I highly recommend trying it!
  • The large metal basket I have in my office area is back in stock. This is one of the most popular items I’ve ever shared, so I always like to let you guys know when it’s back in stock. And at a great price too!
  • I ordered a mama bird shirt from this cute Etsy shop several weeks ago and I’ve been wearing it so much lately. I think it’s so cute and I always get questions when I wear it. That shop has lots of unique t-shirts.

Well that’s it for me today guys! I’m so glad you dropped by the blog today. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! xo

    I discovered some adorable pillow covers on Amazon last week too, and couldn’t believe the great prices…I ordered four different ones and have received three of them so far and they are awesome! I have spent double and three times as much for pillows and will definitely be checking Amazon more often when I want new pillows.

  • Sometimes I wonder what my kids will think when they look back on these little squares I share here everyday. I hope to make them proud in every thing I do, but most of all I hope they see how deeply I love them. I woke up this morning feeling desperate for time to slow down so I can soak in this season with them. These are truly the best days. And even on the hard days & the days I feel like I can’t do it all, I love this life & I’m so grateful to God for every minute of it. 💛🙏
  • Slowing down this morning to cuddle on the couch with my baby, drink a second cup of coffee & take in this cozy view. It was a long week over here & this moment is much needed 🙌🏻🙌🏻 Happy weekend everyone!! #grateful

  • Happy Friday!! 🙋‍♀️ I’m talking about one of my favorite things on the blog today: SKINCARE!! You guys, for the first time ever this week I got on stories with NO makeup. Not one drop of foundation or concealer on my face & no filter. I know that may not sound like a big deal to some of you, but as someone who’s seriously struggled with skin issues throughout her entire life, it’s a HUGE step for me. I’ve always felt SO self-conscious of my skin & it’s been a struggle since I was in high school. But my skin has improved so much & I owe that to @tula. I’ve been religiously using their products for close to two years now & I’ve seen major improvements through that time. 🙏🙏 I shared all about their holiday gift kits on the blog today, so hop over there if you want to check it out. They’re offering some amazing kits, so now is a great time to stock up on your favorites & of course they make great gifts too. AND the kind folks at @tula gave me a new coupon code for you guys—you can use SARAHJOY for 20% off your order 🎉🎉 #partner #tula
  • My favorite time of day— when the sun goes down & everything starts to glow. That’s when it really feels like Christmas is coming. There’s just something magical about those twinkling lights! ✨✨
