Friday favorites

Friday favorites is a place where I share my random thoughts, purchases, and wish list items, or just fun things I found on the web this week.

To view the items click on the bold type. 

I am loving this coffee table.

I just discovered this discount website. They have a great home section. Look at these prints for just over $5.00!

I am thinking of two of these for the foot of Cody's bed.

Just ordered this lipgloss.

Pairs great with this lipliner. 

Looking for a super comfy sectional? I came across this one and it looks so dreamy. It is also not a bad price point for a large piece of furniture. 

Every mom should own a pair of these mom jeans, in my opinion. 

Need to find a place for this cute stool in our home!

Want updates sent to you about postings I make? I don't have an email sign up anymore, but follow along on facebook for daily updates right here.

what I bought on Amazon this month

I was recently reading a blog and on it she shares what she had bought on Amazon that month.
I found it really intriguing and thought I would try doing the same.

You guys seemed to love my SPLURGE or SAVE post, so let's try this out!

I personally love finding new fun products and getting to peek into someone else's shopping cart, so here we go!

Think this should be a monthly post/ Please let me know in the comments section, just like you did for the SPLURGE or SAVE post!

To find the products I have listed, click on the bold type, not the photo itself. Full disclosure- When you click on the link and make a purchase, I may receive a small commission. You can also shop my finds and my home on the LikeToKnowIt page right here. 

Ok, let's get started!

The first category is the beauty department...

1- This dry oil smells amazing. Use it daily as your perfume.
2-Bioderma lip stick. Smells great and works wonders to repair dry and damaged lips.
3- Vitamin A pommade. I heard this is the best for combating wrinkles. We shall see!
4- Hair, skin, and nails gummies. I take these daily and have been for years.
5- This superstay lipstick really does stay on your lips and doesn't get dry or cakey.
6- Rapid Lash eyelash enhancing serum. Forget getting lash extensions and simply apply this every night before bed. You will be shocked at how long your lashes grow! I am on my 4th tube!
7-This body wash smells so fresh and clean, and it's very inexpensive!
8-Just as I take my daily vitamins, so does the Mr. These are the ones he prefers.

Moving onto the household category!

1- Gorilla glue. Because it should be a staple in every household!
2- Damp Rid removes moisture and odors. With 3 dogs and a rabbit, and the fact that we live in the rainiest city, this is a must. I put them in 3 separate places throughout our home.
3- Tyler laundry wash in DIVA. A splurge but I save it for sheets and towels. Your entire house will be smelling divine!
4-Bona hardwood floor cleaner. Spray away the daily dirt and grime. Works like a charm
5- Spot Shot carpet stain remover. I swear by this stuff. Spray it on and walk away. Stains lift right out.
6- Mrs. Meyers laundry soap. The baby blossom scent is to die for. I use it for every wash when I am not using #3 above.

And finally, the home decor category!

1- Natural round balls. I bought several sizes and filled this bowl with them on my coffee table.
2-I am having some pillow shams made for our bed and found a 28" square insert! I buy all my inserts on Amazon, best price I have found besides Ikea. 
3-I bought these stackable organizers for under our master bath sink. We have been snowed in so I have been organizing like crazy.
4-This coffee table book.
5-These Euro pillows in Camel.
6- These keep your shower from looking cluttered.

So what do you think? Want to see this post monthly or do you not care what I am buying? Haha. Let me know!

rugs for people with pets plus coupon

I recently jumped on the Ruggable bandwagon.

Have you heard of Ruggable rugs? They are perfect for anyone with pets, or well, dirt in general.

When they get dirty, you simply throw them in your washing machine and they come out looking like new! 

This really intrigued me because the entry rug we had was getting super dirty. We are not a "take your shoes off" house, so the entry rug gets pretty gross. Plus, with 3 dogs coming and going, it was becoming a daily battle keeping it clean.

I also had the same issue with the rug in front of our kitchen sink.
Spilled food and and what not was getting in the crevices of my wool rug and even though it was vacuumed regularity, it still never felt 100% clean.

I have had these new machine washable rugs a couple weeks now and I am in love!

I love them so much that I ordered new ones {you can order just the tops to change out the look} 

Here are a few pictures of the ones I have, then I will show you which ones I have my eye on!
For in front of our doors I chose a runner in a 7' length. This is the exact one I have. 
I have washed it about 4 times already and it still looks like new. I do hang it to dry, but they dry in hours.

*coupon code at bottom of this post

Oakley likes it too.

I also got this one to use here. I think the darker one will be better to use in the winter months and this lighter striped on in the summer. 

In our kitchen I got this one. Less traffic here, so the light color works well.

All in all I am so happy to have found these! 

Here are a few I have my eye on when I feel like changing up the look:

This is one of their new designs and I love it in all the color ways offered. This grey one is amazing.

To hide dirt I would choose one of these:

This one resembles my stair runner. In fact, I might try these on our stairs instead of our current one, just for the fact that I can wash it. I would think you could apply the pad with a staple gun and then just attach this to the top and take it off when it gets dirty? I will have to look into that!

I like this chambray one as well.

Let's take a look at some in customer homes!

splurge or save?

Splurge or save?

Thinking of making this a regular post. Let me know what you think in the comments pleases!

Who doesn't love to save money? I will find you great items for your home and for your closet, at discounted prices. I will show you the original price and where you can buy it cheaper. Sound good? Let's go!

First up, this beautiful ottoman. 2 at the foot of a bed would look amazing, but you could also use them for extra seating around a coffee table!


This reclaimed wood console table is GORGEOUS! It's very versatile and could be used in so many different styles of homes.

This next one almost doesn't even seem real! Look at this price difference, and tell me that is not the exact same chair!

Who wouldn't want to save $2,368.01?

In this case you have the same chair, just a different color. Honestly I like the less expensive version better anyway!

The differences in this light are so subtle that it is hard to tell the difference. Well, the difference is a savings of $1,095.01!

Up next is an Hermes dupe! I have one, and I love it.

So, what do you think? Should this become a regular post? Weekly, monthly? Please chime in!

inspiring homes

I found these photos on Apartment 34 and all weekend I have been doing nothing but thinking about the.

All these homes are full of warmth, great layers, and a whole lotta texture. 

So so inspiring. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

xoxo, Melaine
