Friday Favorites #4

Happy Friday! I'm popping in to share some of my favorite things from this past week before settling into my workday. 

The other night, our dinner plans didn't turn out, so we walked down to our neighborhood market to grab something to eat. This carrot cake definitely hit the spot! 

I purchased this handsoap last week and the scent of it makes me so happy each time I wash my hands! We typically stick to more natural-based soaps and toiletries to reduce the amount of chemicals in our home and this one is one of my favorites! 

Our local arboretum has been so pretty lately -- some of these flowers must really love the heat and humidity because they are flourishing! 

Lately, I've really enjoyed using these little gems in my frozen protein shakes, yogurt cups, and oatmeal! They add the perfect little crunch and hint of chocolate! 

I need this light, no-frills t-shirt dress for these muggy summer days. I'm thinking this would be so easy to throw on before heading out to run some errands.

This balsamic glaze is amazing on so many things: sliced peaches, pizza, avocado toast, and my favorite -- caprese salad! It tastes just like a balsamic reduction but you don't have to deal with boiling balsamic vinegar down to a sticky syrup. 

On a side note, caprese salad has been my latest obsession ever since I purchased a basil plant from Trader Joe's last weekend. Big thanks to my aunt to reminding me about caprese salad when she served it with dinner during 4th of July weekend! 

Also, can we just agree that getting a car wash is the best thing ever? I'm a neat freak, so having my vehicle, home, and desk neat and tidy make me so happy! 

Kendra Scott just launched some new arrivals and they're all so pretty! This, this, and these are my favorites.
