Five for Friday: Small Treats For Your Big Day … or Any Day

Happy Halloween, loves! I hope you’re all dolled up in your most awesome ensemble and are ready to have a total blast this weekend! I’m stoked that this weekend is finally here, because it means the end of one helluva busy month, and the beginning of a two-month stretch where I have practically nothing planned — the first time this has happened in nearly a year. So I fully plan on relaxin’ to the max and pampering myself on every occasion (which, let’s be real, sometimes a treat just means a mimosa and bagel for breakfast). So, in honor of this opportunity for me to slow down, I’m dedicating this Five for Friday to five of my favorite ways to treat myself, whether it be for a big occasion or just a little extra way to be kind to me.

Aerie Softest Robe

Aerie Softest Robe, $39.95

Luxuriating in a super soft, pretty robe first thing in the morning or after a nice hot shower is one of my favorite things. I’ll take extra time to do my hair and makeup … and pretty much anything other than getting dressed when cloaked in a comfortable robe.

Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Golden Rule,

Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Golden Rule, $8.18

This is my favorite nail polish, possibly ever. It’s like a mutha-effin party on my fingers, and there hasn’t been a single time I’ve worn it and have not received a compliment. Unlike many of those glittery polishes, this is so chock-full of sparkly specks that two coats will suffice (I use three, because #duh).

24/7 T-Shirt Bra in Black

ThirdLove 24/7 T-Shirt Bra in Black, $55

I live in this bra. I shit you not. I’m wearing it right now. ThirdLove is a tiny company that really surprised me with its quality of products, and y’all, I used to work in a lingerie store. I know my shit when it comes to the boulder-holders (plus I’ve been growing these things for 20 years now, so there’s that). But this bra is the single best things I’ve caged my girls in, and they love me for it.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil - Face

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil – Face, $13.15

Palmer’s sent me some of this a while back. I love cocoa butter — it’s the only kind of lip balm I’ll use and I prefer moisturizer that contains it — so it was only natural for me to jump at this opportunity. I’ll totally admit that I was wary about putting oil on my face, but it feels SO. FREAKING. AWESOME. It’s not super greasy, soaks in pretty quickly and leaves my face feeling uber soft. I’ve also not suffered a horrendous breakout since I started using it (which is a rarity after switching products).  Plus it’s got a great smell and it’s kind of a calming ritual after washing my face. The only downside is that I have to use a second product to get my necessary SPF coverage when I’m spending time outside.

Anthropologie Serena Ring in Black Onyx

Anthropologie Serena Ring in Black Onyx, $118

Also available in laborodite, moonstone and chalcedony.

Y’all, sometimes you really have to treat yo-self, and I’m of the opinion that a sweet little ring that you buy for yourself is a great way to do that. Jewelry tends to be an investment, and I know it’s not exactly cheap — but really, this one isn’t that expensive, either — but the dainty, classic silhouette is one that can easily translate through a variety of looks.

Go on, darlings. Treat yo-self this weekend. You earned it! What’s your favorite way to do so?

This Ten for the Weekend has oodles of gorgeous and cozy fashion finds that won’t destroy your budget, but will leave you looking the bestest.

1. A super fancy dress at a quarter of the price? Yep, Rent the Runway does just that. And go ahead and score $20 off orders $75+ until 11/1 when you use code TREAT2014.

Marchesa Notte gown from Rent the Runway

I’d love to see this gorgeous Marchesa Notte dress on a fall bride (Rent for $200, retails at $1395).

7. Get a head start on holiday shopping and get home decor, cards, calendars, etc., with Shutterfly and go ahead and save 40% off while you’re at it.
