Friday Favorites

That picture above is what I like to call Friday evening plans.

And just like that, it is the last Friday Favorites for October!

Favorite Song: Two Weeks by FKA Twigs They played this song on The Originals last week and I was in love at first listen. Been on repeat ever since. What do you think?

Favorite Beauty Products: I got a super awesome package in the mail last week from BzzAgent with some new beauty products to try!


My absolute favorite of the bunch was the Dolce & Gabbana Passion Eyes Mascara. Honestly, just a few quick swipes and my eyelashes were transformed. This stuff has zero smudge/flaking and it was easy to take off at night with my normal eye make up remover. For sure my new go to!


They also sent a Dolce & Gabbana Matte Lipstick in Dolce Flirt. This stuff glides right on and has some serious lasting power. I actually had a really hard time wiping it off my thumb after showing you the color test in the picture below. This isn’t as drying as some of the matte lipsticks I have tried, which is great. Nothing worse than flaky lips, am I right?



And last, but certainly not least, was the Gucci Bamboo. I am loving this scent you guys! It is a light, fun, flirty scent. There are notes of Italian Bergamot, Casablanca Lily, Ylang Ylang, and Comoros Sandalwood. It is a super clean scent, wrapped up in perhaps a light floraly after note? If that makes any sense. I think this would be perfection for the spring/summer months.


Every single product in that box was a winner for me.

Favorite Recipe: One thing I miss about Atlanta is all the amazing Thai restaurants that are there. We do have Surin here in Birmingham, which I was actually at on Wednesday night for girls night! One of my favorite recipes I made recently was Thai Peanut Zoodles. I want to change it up and do something over quinoa similar to the thai places I miss so much. Enter Thai Peanut Chicken Quinoa Bowls! Can’t wait to try this out!

Crockpot Thai Peanut Chicken Quinoa Bowls - An easy, weeknight friendly dinner where the slow cooker does all the work for you! It tastes like your favorite Thai restaurant, but is healthy and gluten free! | | #recipe:

Favorite Workout: Get your jam on while working out! There are tons of “one song workouts” on Pinterest! Just pick a few to string together, or chose one and add it to your current routine for a change up!

I I love it Please follow us to get more like this. We always love your presence with us. Thanks for your time. #workout:

Lyrics to 'With Or Without You' by U2. See the stone set in your eyes / See the thorn twist in your side / I'll wait for you / Sleight of hand and twist of fate. 'With Or Without You' is a famous song which cover by Randdy Farrell.:

Or check out this choreographed work out to Whip (nae nae).

Favorite Lust: I am loving the faux fur vests this year!!! But done classy, of course. I found some affordable options like this, and this, and this one at Target! This is the look I am going for…


Also, I saw this sweater at Target last weekend and I haven’t stopped thinking about it!

    Cracking up over here. We watch the originals, aka I watch it and Mark tolerates it in the background. I came out of the bathroom and he had that scene paused….and he goes “I really like this song can you do that app you have you to figure out what it is” 😉 Yup its awesome. Your funnies this week. Dying.

    p.s I’m tired just watching that workout now.

    Love how bright that lipstick is. Purdy!

  • Reply Stephanie October 30, 2015 at 9:42 am

    Haha that that last one, I need to download that to my phone for sure. Such a pretty lip color! I didn’t love Gucci bamboo though. It was a sample in something I got from Ulta, but it wasn’t my fave.

    That recipe had me at “crockpot”

    I didn’t know they were turning Big Little Lies into a TV series! I’m glad it’s going on HBO and not a regular network like Sharp Objects is. Those kinds of books will do better on cable.

    Get out of here – what a great package to be sent and the mascara sounds amazing!! I think you should totally snag the faux fur vest – I’m a fan! Haha usernames and password – they kill me! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Happy Halloween! I love that non bra and panty matchers everywhere are safe! Such a relief. And I HATE when I miss the pots and pans. They’re the worst ones!

    That Gucci bamboo sounds like something I might like.

    Happy weekend!

    Why is it, our husbands are such big babies when they’re sick, but when we’re sick we still have to function and do laundry and all that crap?! I love that puppy dog, that’s gonna be me a lot this weekend too! You definitely need that sweater from Target girl, it is so so cute and I can totally see you in that with some jeans snd booties!! Happy happy Halloween weekend lovely lady!

  • Reply Mattie October 30, 2015 at 1:43 pm

    YES that Target sweater is amazing and SO soft. I have it in the blue color and I want more!! I need a new faux fur vest…my one from last year is too big. It was from Target and reasonable and perfect. Ugh I hope I can find a new one!

    That workout looks really good. I love that last one, too funny!!

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer October 30, 2015 at 11:52 pm

    I’m kind of obsessed with those products you got from BzzAgent! The color of that lipstick is awesome. I am thinking of trying that recipe this week. I’ve been eating the same thing for breakfast and lunch for a couple of months and I’m burned the heck out. That last picture made me laugh out loud! May have to steal it… Happy weekend!

  • Reply jackie November 1, 2015 at 5:24 pm

    ah i’m obsessed with thai food too but we sadly moved across town from my fave place. i need to find a new favorite. and yes to that meme about husbands with sniffles. seriously so true. and i loved big little lies and didn’t know that news – so cool!

  • Reply Teh Megan November 3, 2015 at 2:03 pm

    I downloaded Big Little Lies on Audible too! I’m trying to finish the Rob Lowe book first. I have about 2 hours left of tolerating Rob before I can move on, but I’m super pumped.

  • Reply Duckie November 4, 2015 at 7:13 pm

    You got the Gucci BzzKit! So jealous!! And I would love to be able to wear some faux fur but I’d probably get some strange looks and be sweating my ass off in it here on Guam. Lol. And now I really want to try that Whip/Nae Nae workout! It looks kinda fun and I know my kids love that song so they’d get a kick out of it too.
