Friday Faves

Friday, March 18, 2016

Whew... why does it feel like it hasn't been Friday in forever? Last week was so yuck for me I didn't even get to enjoy the dawn of my favorite day because my mind was stuck in dark places. But today I will! I have tennis tonight, live band heavy metal karaoke tomorrow night at The Dark Horse Tavern (watch that unfold on Snapchat), and tennis again on Sunday. Hopefully I can sleep way in on Saturday morning, I actually wrote that in my planner, squeeze in a nap and get some cornhole practice in too. Maybe some Netflix and Prime binging in bed with the dog. And of course much needed time with the kiddoes all weekend long! But first we talk fabulous things that I can't get enough of with Amanda.


Another Bebe Rexha anthem that speaks to my single girl soul. And a good mini story video.


Love these new Kassidy Wedge Sandals from Nine West. I don't love heels for work so much but give me a good wedge all day and I am happy! The combo of black and leopard is on point! Use my code here to get $10 off your next pair!

So have I mentioned that I am a cheese fanatic? You have all probably tried this one but just in case it is one of my most favorite cheeses on the planet and pretty readily available. You guys.... it's cheese with wine already IN IT!!!!! Bellavitano Merlot is perfect for any occasion. I would describe it for you but here is what the good folks who make it have to say... Get. It. Now. Actually all the flavors are amazing. I love the Espresso flavor as well.

By wedding this rich, creamy cheese to the berry and plum notes of Merlot, we’ve created a marriage of flavors destined to make your taste buds say, “I do.” On that note, if you invite a few friends from our pairing guide — say, toasted walnuts, thin slices of prosciutto and semisweet chocolates for dessert — the honeymoon never has to end.


Oh fringe... you get me every time.  Love, love this new Isabeau Clutch from Nine West. Must have staple. At $69 I think it's a great basic for the summer.

I am all about a good protein bar but sometimes I want something savory and not sweet. These from Kind hit the spot! The Thai Sweet Chili and Roasted Jalapeno are my faves so far. Weird? Yes... but soooo good!


So you all know how much I love a good cocktail but let's face facts... empty calories blow. This pin and article from Buzzfeed of course with some recipes for light, refreshing summer cocktails. Yes please! I really just love the title. Get you turnt.


And sadness upon sads ... not only am I still patiently waiting for one amazing artist to open up her books so I can get an appointment, my other favorite artist is coming home for a visit and I didn't jump fast enough to get a spot with him. My timing is the worst but I guess it will be when the time is right. For now I continue to admire all the beautiful blackwork that they do. And wait. And wait.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!


  1. That clutch is so pretty - I haven't been to nine west in quite some time, but between the shoes and clutch I need to! Have a great weekend! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. Oh I'm interested in that roasted jalapeno kind bar. I haven't seen them yet.

  4. oh! i have never tried the savoury kind bars, i do quite like the sweet ones, but i will check out the others. hope you get to sleep in tomorrow!

  5. Ohhh I love those shoes!!! And that song was added to my spotify last time I heard it on the radio. Those kind bars sound fabulous!!! When I am ready for my next tattoo, I am coming back to GA for it. My artist moved to FL but he comes back every once in awhile to his Atl shop and I hope to time it to catch him then! Hope you have a great weekend!
