Friday Faves is back!
Now that I’ve settled back into real life (waaah) after my royal wedding trip, I’ve finally had time to gather my thoughts, create some new posts, and get back into the swing of things. I can’t wait to share more about my adventures in England with you!
On to this week’s faves:
Harry and Meghan: A Royal Romance
If you’re on the fence about the cheese factor and haven’t watched the Harry and Meghan Lifetime movie yet, do it! The film debuted a few days before I left for Windsor and I was swamped with work, so I didn’t get to watch it until last weekend.
I thought the actors they chose for Meghan and Harry looked so similar to them. Even their voices were really close! The Will and Kate, on the other hand … let’s just say I cringed more than a few times in those scenes.
Yes, some of the lines were definitely corny, but overall I thought the movie was decently entertaining. It gets a solid B from me! If you have some time to kill on a Sunday afternoon, definitely watch.
Fab Fit Fun Summer Box
Coming back from a once-in-a-lifetime event to your normal routine is a bit of a downer. As a #fabfitfunpartner, I was excited to have the new summer box waiting for me when I got home from the airport.
Along with my London Pop Box, this is my absolute must-have subscription box. It’s like Christmas four times a year and I’ve discovered so many cool products!
So far, my favorite item from the summer box is the ERTH pearl ring. It has a very Meghan Markle vibe to me, and I’ve worn it almost every day for the past week!
I’m also really into the Coola classic face sport sunscreen. I used it at a theme park this week and it went on really light and sheer but still kept me from getting burnt. And the Foreo Luna Fofo cleansing device is so cool! It’s similar to a Clarisonic, but you don’t need to replace annoying brush heads. Plus it works with an app on your phone to analyze your skin’s hydration, age, etc.
If you don’t already get Fab Fit Fun boxes, you can sign up using this link and use the code NEW10 to get $10 off your box!
Kate’s Zara flocked print dress
On my last morning in London, I woke up to see new photos of Kate in a blue Zara dress at the Houghton Horse Trials. I fell in love with the dress and sent my family on a wild goose chase around London trying to find it before we had to leave for the airport (sorry, guys!).
At one point I thought there was no way I’d get this dress. It was sold out everywhere! But then the very helpful saleswoman at the Oxford Street location said she would check in the back and see if maybe someone had returned one.
After waiting a good 10 minutes in the blazing hot store (it was about 80 degrees outside and no air conditioning!) she returned with two dresses: one in my size, and one in my sister’s. What are the odds?!
Although it’s sold out, there are TONS of these dresses on eBay and Poshmark right now. If you find one at the right price, snap it up! I wore it to a wedding rehearsal dinner last night but you could easily wear it for something casual like a picnic, or out to dinner, a bridal/baby shower, graduation party … pretty much any summer occasion.
I’ll be wrapping up my royal wedding diary next week with part 3 of the recap. Until then … have a great weekend!
