Friday Night Favorites.

Friday Night Favorites.

Friday nights are officially my favorite part of the week, but for very different reasons than life in my early twenties. Gone are the days of bar hopping after work or shaking off the workweek with a few too many drinks – you see, Friday nights are now my favorite because they’re my one night to do nothing.

My quiet Friday evenings have become the perfect way to unwind from work and soak in some quiet time before the hustle of the weekend kicks in. In celebration of my favorite part of the week rolling around once again, I wanted to share a peek into my Friday night favorites (aka what you’re likely to find me doing after work tonight!):

Friday Night Favorites.

Read Something Besides Email: I stopped for a second earlier this week and realized Monday-Friday, my life basically revolves around my email inbox. Between work and the blog it’s non-stop which also means that I’m unlikely to read much besides what’s flowing through my inbox throughout the week – depressing! I like to play catch up on life outside of the email world on Friday nights – whether it’s finally flipping through my neglected pile of magazines, starting a new book on my Kindle or taking a trip down memory lane amongst my beloved book collection, it always feels so good to take some time to disconnect.

#FaceMaskFriday: If you happen to be following along on Snapchat you’ve probably noticed that I love me some face masks (I also blogged about some favorites recently!). I like to give my skin a little pampering on Friday nights while I’m unwinding at home by adding a few extra steps to my skincare routine – from mud masks to scrubs, peels and sheet masks, it’s a little treat I look forward to each Friday.

Comfy & Cozy: There’s a running joke with a few friends that once I’m in pajama mode… there’s no turning back. On Friday nights you’re most likely to find me changed into comfy clothes immediately after walking in the door from work and there’s 0% chance you’re getting me to change out of ’em to go out once I’ve gotten cozy. After getting my UGG slippers a few months ago I don’t know how I managed to live 27 years without having slippers – they’re heaven.

Workweek Wine-d Down: I swear, wine tastes its absolute best on Friday night! There’s nothing better than opening up a bottle of your favorite wine to enjoy a glass while you relax. I’m obsessed with Cultivar’s Cabernet Franc – it’s a really great full bodied red that has just the right blend of sweet and spicy.

TGIF, friends! Cheers to the freaken’ weekend 😉

    LOVE THIS! I always laugh with my hubby about how much Fridays have changed. Now we are excited to get in bed early and relax. That moment when you get home and can grab a glass of wine in comfy clothes is what life is all about!

    I love this!! I am at a weird point in my life where I DO want to spend my Fridays boozing it up, but then I want to have the flexibility to do absolutely NOTHING. does that make sense? hahah. Anyway, I always love all the different face masks you share, have an good Friday!!

  • Yes! Friday, now, is like another work night for me, except I don’t have to get up the next morning. I just like to come home and relax…with a glass of wine (or a couple). Definitely different from the early twenties, but so much more enjoyable!
