end of the week exfoliation

Happy Friday to you! I hope you are excited for the weekend to come. I myself am now safely at my parents house. Looking outside at the foggy rolling golf course hills, it looks more like a sleepy spring morning in England than Downingtown, PA. Maybe I’ll pretend I’m lounging in an old castle in “Hampfredshire” (said with the PBS Pride and Prejudice accent). It sure beats the reality of this crummy weather. The silver lining however? There is a J.Crew outlet nearby with my name on it.

As for the exfoliations, Carolyn, featured below mentioned she is now officially addicted to exfoliating. I love that idea! Anyone else an “Exfoliation Addict?”


“I cleaned out my manicure supplies. Over half of the items were expired, not my style or never used. Now when I get my supplies out I don’t have to dig to find the good stuff!”



“I finally cleared out the bottles from bathroom.  All three of these are less than half full, were bought over two years ago, and I haven’t touched them in months.  So while I should be taking my vitamins, it’s time for a fresh start!”



“I am exfoliating…Old File Folders and old Promotion Materials for Non-Profit (pens, mouse pads, sweatshirts)”



I’m exfoliating the belt at the bottom because of the new little pretty shown on top. I spied this awesome belt at H&M and had to have it. But knowing that I had a similar belt already, I had to decide if I was willing to exfoliate the old belt. The answer was obviously yes. Anyone want the black + brown belt? Comment to claim it!

    Love the new belt! I think I too am addicted to getting rid of stuff! Feels so great to purge it all!

    I love the new belt! And the old one too! I have the perfect dress for it 🙂

    I’d love the old belt too! I’d snag it and in exchange toss out my old (not half as cute) brown belt 🙂

    @ Jill: Yes! Another ‘exfoliation addict.’ Maybe we should get badges for our blogs… good idea or corny?

    @ Creative Be: And the winner is… YOU! Congrats, I’ll email you next week about shipping you the belt. 🙂 Please send a pic of your outfit when you wear it.

    @ Michelle: Yep, it’s pretty cute. Just couldn’t justify having two almost identical pieces.

    @ Maureen: 🙂 Keep checking in, I exfoliate things every Friday…

    @ Sherisa: I’m glad you like the belt. Creative Be commented to claim it first, but check in each week, I exfoliate every Friday!

    I just found your website and I love it! I, too, am addicted to purging and keeping my life simplified. But I also live in a 1,800 square foot home that I love to keep beautiful, so sometimes it is necessary to bring more in. My philosophy is to recycle/donate/toss one thing for every new item I bring into the house. A thrifted, vintage bowl is much better than an old set of dingy sheets from my husbands college days, yes?

    So glad I found your blog!

    @ Lindsey: I’m glad you found my site and enjoy exfoliating so much! I aim to do the one-in-one-out policy but sometimes find it more difficult. Which makes the end of the week exfoliation a great habit for me to do a decent amount of pruning on a regular basis.

    And a thrifted bowl does beat old college dishes every time :).

    WOW! Thanks Jess 🙂 It was my birthday over the weekend, a sweet present. I am excited to get it and style an outfit or two with it 😉
