Friday Favorites

Oh, hey Friday!!!! Notice a little color change going on up top? Don’t adjust your screens. I have been playing around with my design. I have that itch to change something and thought the easier thing is accent color. Anywho, it is time for Friday Favorites!!!

Favorite Song: We were watching some old reruns of HIMYM and the episode with the flashback of Marshall came on…

When was the last time you heard Informer by Snow?? It is still full of awesome.

Favorite Beauty: I received a bottle of YSL Black Opium from Influenster and I am in love!!! Besides the fact that the packaging is just gorgeous, I think that this scent is really appropriate for fall! It is sensual, with scents of sandalwood, coffee, white flowers and vanilla. It isn’t overpowering so you can wear it for work or a night out. My only complaint is that I feel that it fades towards the end of the day. Though to be honest, don’t most fragrances? I will be happily displaying this beautiful bottle in my bedroom. Love, love, love!

Favorite Recipe: This Spicy Cashew Chicken looks amazing, right???

Copycat Spicy Cashew Chicken | The Chunky Chef | This cashew chicken is deliciously spicy and savory, and tastes almost exactly like The Cheesecake Factory's recipe. You won't want takeout anymore!:


Favorite Lust: I need new pants, bad! I am thinking maybe these. Or these. And Amanda said great things about these. What is your go to brand?

Favorite Event: Laura and I went to the 10th Anniversary Party at Swoozies here in Birmingham on Wednesday night. We were in the top 25 to RSVP so we got swag bags!!! I love the gold color and the fact that there are elephants on it!!! I will say that I really thought there would be fun stuff inside it, but it was empty. Boo!

Swoozie Swag Bag

While we were there I grabbed a Corkcicle bottle. Have you seen these?

It says that they keep your drink cold for 25 hours or hot for 12 hours. They are BPA free and do not sweat. I am in love!!! I poured my water with some ice at 7:15am and when I pulled it out for lunch at 12:20pm it was freezing cold still!!! YES!!!! Plus it is so pretty 🙂 I found myself drinking twice the amount of water I usually do throughout the day because I like my water cold, not room temp. This bottle is a huge win.

Favorite Links:

–Michael had a great post about Stylebook and how she organized her closet and got rid of things she doesn’t love. This is something that I have been working on this year. She did such a great job on her post that it made me purchase the app!!! You can ask Chris, I never buy apps. It was that good. 

–I sent this article to Chris for goals of our next home!

–Learn what your favorite dog breed says about you.

Obviously I am a huge Pug fan since Gracie is a Puggle, it says:

It’s been said that you have to have a sense of humor to have a pug, and pug lovers definitely do. People who love pugs enjoy laughing and are overall very cheery, positive people. They’re not always the most sporty (or coordinated), but that’s okay. They adore being pampered and taken care of, just like their furry counterparts. Pug lovers are open-minded and tend to be on the artistic side.

I do love to laugh and keep an open mind!!!

    I want to try the Black Opium, I haven’t yet! I’ve heard that it’s awesome but I need to go smell it for myself of course 🙂
    I went with Pom since that’s (mostly) what Hawkeye is – “Pomeranians are small, sweet, and adorable, and the people who love them are often perceived the same way. As suggested by the lively spirit of these little dogs, people who love them are also very passionate, with a lot of zest for life.” But I think the description for Collies is much more me.

    WHAT?!?!? I need this bottle in my life. I hate sweaty bottles & ones that the drinks are cold like 10 minutes after you carry it.

    I gotta go see what my favorite breed says about me (Aussies are the BEST!)

  • Reply Jessica October 9, 2015 at 12:03 pm

    Love the Peter Pan gifs, he’s my favorite! And now I want a corkcicle bottle!

  • Reply Erin LFF October 9, 2015 at 12:37 pm

    Someone was JUST telling me about that bottle a couple weeks ago, but then after the fact I couldn’t remember the name/brand of it. YAY- I need to get one of those now! 🙂

  • Reply kristen October 9, 2015 at 12:46 pm

    that bottle is so awesome. i don’t like things that keep my water cold, but i also really don’t like when bottles sweat. i can’t win. love the new fancy colour! i don’t have a go to for jeans, womp womp, my favourite brand is nobody (i have 2 pairs) but i bought them years ago, and wouldn’t pay that now haha. i have 2 pairs from old navy that i like, but they are hit or miss. my bestie just bought some from gap and loved them. i also have 2 pairs from express that i quite like, only on sale though!

  • Reply Katie @Runningwithwine October 9, 2015 at 1:12 pm

    Express is my go to for jeans…I think they might be 40% off right now…they were yesterday at least. I’m genuinely sad that the bag was empty, its great that you got a nice bag for free but such a tease to be empty.

  • Reply kathy @ more coffee, less talky October 9, 2015 at 1:26 pm

    Love the color change!! Also: I want that perfume!!

  • Reply Tracy October 9, 2015 at 3:34 pm

    Sevens are my favorite jeans ever, by far. It sucks that they’re so expensive (even when I get them from discount sites) but they’re definitely worth it for me. The fit is perfect and that is priceless 😉 Have a great weekend!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis October 9, 2015 at 3:49 pm

    The perfume from YSL sounds awesome! I wish I had gotten that one or the lipsticks…the milkshake snapchat still cracks me up…well of your funnies as usual. Happy weekend!

  • Reply alyssa October 9, 2015 at 5:42 pm

    Those funnies are so good. I love the 404 one hahah and I definitely agree you have to have a sense of humor to have pugs! (I used to have two, they were the best). Have a great weekend!!

    The perfume bottle looks so pretty! I’m on the hunt for the perfect perfume and I can’t decide what my favorite is. Too many good ones!
    I like my water ice cold too so I’m going to check into that bottle. My husband has a yeti and it works pretty well but I want a cute bottle. Haha.
    I hope your weekend was fantastic!
