Friday Favorites

Favorite Song: You guys know how I love to throw it back!!! High by Feeder. How can you not drift in to memories when you hear this song? Oh 90’s, your music really was the best!

Favorite Beauty Find: Last week, Sephora sent out an email to VIB members with some “early access” items. I happened to scroll through and saw this Tarte Energy Noir Clayย palette and realized that I just had to have it. HAD TO. Luckily I had a $25 Sephora gift card so I bought that thing before I could think twice about it. Look how gorgeous these colors are!!!!

Here is a picture of mine. The colors are pretty darn close to what is online!

Tarte Noir

I am just in love with all these colors, they are so perfect! This is my first time using tarte eye shadow and blush, and I am loving them! I figured I would, tarte has one of my favorite mascaras! It is available for VIB Sephora members or you can order it off QVC. I don’t think it hits all stores until this fall.

Favorite Recipe: This spicy baked shrimp looks so good!

Spicy Baked Shrimp -  1/2 cup olive oil 2 tablespoons Cajun or Creole seasoning 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 1 tablespoon honey 1 tablespoon soy sauce Pinch of cayenne pepper 1 pound uncooked large shrimp, shelled, deveined

Favorite Pin: How amazing is this palette project????

This Pallet Board simply leans against the wall and serves as a display board. Knobs and handles were attached, and a lovely driftwood wheel is in the mix!

Favorite Book: Right now I am reading Secrets at Maple Syrup Farm. I am about 40% in and it is so good!!!

Favorite Funnies:

I laughed way too hard


My week in GIFS:

When someone cuts me off

When I work on something for two days and then the job gets cancelled

Me in front of the fan after a run

When someone thinks they are being funny and I sort of fake smile but it was just awful

Linking up with Amanda. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!!
