The Friday Five

1.  This pretty much sums it up for me!  I have been loving my scoop neck t-shirt from Truth Balance Virtue.

2.  I have these Votivo Clean Crisp White candles and diffusers all over my house right now.  I love this scent!

3.  I recently purchased this Strapless Stripe Maxi Dress from Nordstrom.  I love maxi dresses in the summer, the black and white stripes, and it’s only $88!!

4.  The heat and humidity are back in full force in the South!  I don’t wear foundation, but I do use powder to keep the shine under control.  Too Faced Primed & Poreless powder has worked really well for my oily skin without causing breakouts.

5.  Taco lovers rejoice!!  Read about the new emoji’s HERE!

Happy Friday and Choose Joy!

    Taco emojis?!? You’re going to be in heaven, Jen! Woo hoo! This adds a whole new level of excitement to Taco Tuesday! I’m a sucker for black and white stripes; I currently have two black and white striped maxi dresses and I would like to just wear them every day – ha! I hope you have a great Friday and an even better weekend; I’m definitely glad it’s here!

    That dress is so cute! I love a good maxi but I can never wear strapless. I’m always fidgeting with it and have tan lines, so its not cute! It looked great on you when you shared a pic. Good choice :)

    I still think that they need a Ninja emoji. Like with the amount of times that comes up in my conversation… I really need it. And I love that t-shirt… although I think I fall more towards the donut side of things : )

    That dress is too cute!!

    Lovely scents are awesome! What scent do you smell in Clean Crisp White?

    • http://jenchoosesjoy.com jenchoosesjoy

      It’s not an overpowering scent. It reminds me of clean laundry and lilies.
