Friday Favorites

Favorite Song: Just go ahead and expect a Christmas song for the rest of the year from me! This is Justin Bieber’s Mistletoe. Don’t judge, it is so damn catchy.

Favorite Moment: Meeting up with Laura yesterday for the grand opening of a new breakfast/lunch spot, Feast and Forest. They didn’t have a huge selection on their menu the first day so I just got a ham and cheese sandwich but I also grabbed a Nutella Poptart from their bakery case. You guys!!! Yes, it is as amazing as it sounds!!!!


Favorite Beauty Product:I purchased the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation during the Sephora sale last week and I am in love!!! Not only does this stuff have amazing coverage, but it is super build-able, doesn’t irritate my skin, looks super natural and lasts forever. Seriously, when I get home from a long day at work and look in the mirror…my face is nearly as perfect as when I left in the morning!!! Also, this stuff doesn’t rub off like every other foundation that I have ever used. Usually when I wear my sunglasses, they leave marks on my face from where they sat. Now? Nothing!!! Super win for me. I think I found my holy grail foundation.

Favorite Mail: Black Friday ads are rolling in!!! Although, I don’t like to see places opening on Thursday during Thanksgiving dinner. Boo!!!! My mom and I will be out much later that night when all the world is tucked away to sleep 🙂

Favorite Recipe: After looking at this picture, I need to get some almond flour!!!

Sweet and Spicy Paleo Chicken Bites. Using almond flour, honey, and Greek Yogurt makes them healthy as well.:


Favorite Work Out: Thanks to Kate, I tried a new Barre 3 video this week that I actually enjoyed. Even though it kicked my ass thoroughly and I nearly face planted once. Try this out to pump up the jam!

Favorite Lusts: I am in love with these black sparkly earrings!

And this houndstooth blouse, Roll Tide!

Oh and this

Favorite Links:

–When is the last time you cleaned that Keurig? It isn’t something I really think about often either but see the proper way to do it here!

19 tweets about Netflix that will make you laugh…well more like 11…the rest were dumb

Favorite Pins:

There is a decidedly glamorous edge to this breathtaking model home by Alquinn Homes in Edmonton. The sophisticated palette of greys and creams adds to the luxe appeal. #Farmhouse flooring in the colour Le Bourg.:


Elevate your staircase with an ombré paint job.


Slow Cooker Gingerbread Latte!! Easy is best...and these are best! It tastes and smells like Christmas in my house thanks to these Crockpot Gingerbread Lattes!!:

    Nutella poptarts are a thing? The world is good.

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth November 20, 2015 at 9:49 am

    bahahahahahah that last gif. I can’t watch that show anymore because its just too terrible but I love her one liners. I think they should cut it to 15 minutes and just give us Chanel quotes the whole time 😉 Ummmmm I’m listening to your Biebs song right now and love it. He gets me every time! Yeah to barre workouts!!

  • Reply Cara Owens November 20, 2015 at 9:57 am

    Belk is like my go-to Black Friday store because all of their deals are also ONLINE! They always have amazing deals on their boots and accessories, and even better you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home or pj’s. Have a great weekend!

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! November 20, 2015 at 10:09 am

    Lol the Scream Queen quote is HYSTERICAL!

    What?! I need that foundation I always have the same thing and wondered if it was just me! Now I’m sad I didn’t get 20% off with it 🙁 Totally want to try that Barre Youtube, now let’s just see if I actually do. Yay for trying new places and Nutella poptarts. Hope you have a great weekend!!

  • Reply Tracie November 20, 2015 at 10:42 am

    All I have to say is YES to all of these things! I really want to try that chicken recipe, it looks delish! Well, yes to all the things… except nutella. I don’t like nutella.

  • Reply Pamela @ A Little Glitter November 20, 2015 at 10:43 am

    I also hate when stores open on Thanksgiving. I feel like it is just wrong. I have actually never been out for Black Friday. I’m scared! I do get plenty of shopping done online though!

  • Reply Kelli November 20, 2015 at 10:51 am

    I love the gray colored flooring in your favorite pin, I think I have Tyson talked into that color when we buy a house. 🙂

  • Reply Biana @ Blovedboston November 20, 2015 at 11:40 am

    I hate when the foundation leaves your face and you get sunglasses marks!! That house you pinned is literally my dream house – I can’t even imagine having that beautifulness!! Hope you have a great weekend! xo, BIana –BlovedBoston

    OMG that pop tart looks wonderful! And ugh I’m so sick of seeing those staged IG photos! You’ll never catch me doing that, that’s for sure!

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says November 20, 2015 at 1:17 pm

    OMG, that Aladdin one!!!

    Thank you for that recipe because I need new ones!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph November 20, 2015 at 1:49 pm

    I’ve unfollowed a lot of people who only share staged photos. Boring. Same with formulaic posts. Boring!

    I love the idea of a nutella pop tart.

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis November 20, 2015 at 2:13 pm

    Ok I need that wino saur shirt asap! lol The black and gold earrings are gorgeous and also my alma mater colors so perfect for game day!

  • Reply kathy @ more coffee, less talky November 20, 2015 at 2:14 pm

    that cat who got caught!!! LOLOLOLOLOLOL that made me laugh so hard.
    definitely checking that chicken recipe….now that i make almond flour, i’ll be making this for sure!!

  • Reply Teh Megan November 20, 2015 at 2:59 pm

    Part of me wishes that we’d opted for the hardwood stairs so we could do something fun like those stairs you pinned, but it saved us $1500 to just get them carpeted. Andddd it’s not as much of a slip hazard for the Queen of Grace (me). Also, I’ve been looking at kitchens and what is with all the white cabinets? Am I missing something? I get that it makes your space look lighter, but Teh German is pretty set on dark cabinets with light counter tops and I’m just like, why can’t it all be rainbows (ok not really, but sometimes I wish this was a thing)?

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer November 20, 2015 at 3:27 pm

    I’m going to need a Nutella pop tart! I’m in love with that houndstooth shirt! I have a coat in that print and it’s my favorite. I’m feeling the Instagram pressure… I don’t always have cool shit to take pictures of, you know? And I’m getting that foundation. Thanks for the recommendation! Happy Friday!

  • Reply Katy November 20, 2015 at 5:02 pm

    Those first few pins…. BE STILL MY HEART. I totally should have met Jack a year prior to when I did so I could help make the house decisions before he built it. (But probably better for his wallet that we didn’t meet sooner. muahahaha)

  • Reply Stephanie November 21, 2015 at 12:00 pm

    Nutella pop tart!! I need that!!

  • Reply Jenna November 21, 2015 at 1:14 pm

    That would be why I love that Lancome foundation… It’s one of my staples. Granted, I’m about to go out shopping, and right now I’m pretty much just in cheap BB, eyeshadow liner, and gloss, but when I need my powerhouse for all day at work, that’s what I grab.

  • Reply Mattie November 21, 2015 at 10:26 pm

    1. I need that Nutella pop tart in my life.
    2. I need that chicken in my life.
    3. I need those black glitter studs in my life.
    4. I totally had that moment of “what day is it?” after my nap today haha.

  • Reply Amanda November 22, 2015 at 8:27 am

    I downloaded that Justin Bieber song a few weeks ago. I feel slightly less ashamed now (but still a little ashamed) that someone else has shown it love.
    Cleaning a Keurig is a lot of work. Good lord!

  • Reply Kerry November 22, 2015 at 5:17 pm

    Almond flour is a really good alternative. I love that kitchen, so bright and airy. Cute ombre stairs.

  • Reply kristen November 24, 2015 at 8:40 am

    ok fabulous, i’m gonna try that barre workout.
    i love houndstooth! not for a team though hahaha.
    yay for loving the Lancome- thats so awesome!
