Friday Favorites

Friday, June 23, 2017


What a week... I am still recovering from the epic party, more on that later. But for now I have a few current favorite things to share with you mostly from my last completely frivolous spending spree. 


I finally bit the bullet and got myself the work tote that I was coveting. They had a spring clearance sale so I got a steal of a deal on the Legend Tote in Bleecker Blush  and I loooove it. Not only is the color absolutely gorgeous and completely neutral everything is perfectly organized and stowed neatly in it's place. I love that it has a neoprene sleeve cup holder inside, one less thing to carry in my hands.  I also picked up a large Elle Clutch because I often prefer not to carry a purse in addition to my tote. This keeps my phone and i.d., lipstick, cards.... whatever, separate from my work stuff and tucks right inside. I love this piece too. Check it out here  and click here to get 10% off your first order. 


I am always trying to use less heat on my hair to keep it healthier and make my color last longer so I have gotten pretty good about going longer and longer between washes. This could not be possible without some good dry shampoo. Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Tapioca Dry Shampoo is my current favorite. It smells good enough to eat!! Throw it in your Amazon shopping cart now, you will not be disappointed.

I bought this Linen Shift Dress for my daughter's graduation and it is so cute and summery. It actually stays off your shoulders pretty well. It is a little on the short side (not as much on me as this model) but I actually wore it as a tunic with white skinny jeans and it was super cute. Classic, simple elegant. And cheap.

If you are like me you like to add a little something here or there in your home that is seasonal. A pop of color in the summer or something a little beachy maybe? Check out the Coastal Prep collection at Michael's. It feels like a little it of Hamptons chic for a fraction of the cost. You can buy some of it online but I recommend headibng to the store with your app and 40% off coupons! How pretty is this?

Music Midtown announced their 2017 lineup this week and although I was hoping for U2 I'll settle for Bruno, Mumford, Future and Blink. I get the pre-sale special duh because I buy so many concert tickets so I'll be there. Bringing a trash bag to wear this year. Can. Not. Wait.

Ya'll know I have an Adidas obsession. That includes Stan Smith's in multiple colors and styles. Ummm... can we not even talk about how freaking cute these are in... wait for it.... PALM PRINT. Could you die??? I could only find them in men's but luckily they come in some really small men's sizes like 8 that actually fit my size 10 womens foot. How do you like me know Pharrell Williams?

adidas Women's Women's Stan Smith Palm Tree Sneakers ($79) ❤ liked on Polyvore featuring shoes, sneakers, green, adidas sneakers, low top, low profile sneakers, lace up shoes and ortholite shoes

Last but not least the Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette. I love these colors. Since I had my eyebrows done and I have been getting lash extensions I feel like I don't need any heavy color on my eyes, I can easily get away with a more natural look. Bye bye heavy smokey eye at least for summer! Hello subtle earthy nudes, this is perfect!

Urban Decay - Naked2 Basics I've barely even looked at this and I already want it...

The internet has been pretty damn funny lately...

Saving this one for one of my DM's...

Exactly... how I felt when I put the last dish on the table at the graduation party last weekend after cooking for days...

Also how I felt when the last party guest left 4 hours after the invitation said the party was over and I was not hammered...

How ready I am for summer...

Also mentally getting prepared for not being able to fix my A/C until I finish paying college tuition...

Basically heading into summer like...

Linking up with Amanda for the first time in for-ev-er!!!


  1. OMG that guy face planting in the sand! HAHAHAHAHA! that made my morning.
    it's been sucking bad here re: weather-- rain and COLD and it feels like fall. Mother nature is drunk.

  2. Music Midtown!!!! I still have my shirt from 2001. And I still wear it. HAHA. I love that Blink 182 is going to be there!!!! I have seen Weezer a few times in random concerts. Those Adidas shoes are super fun and I am all about the UD naked palettes. I have two of them and they are in heavy rotation. Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. OMG that festival looks like it'd be a lot of fun! Definitely a few bands there I'd love to see.

  4. I need to check out that dry shampoo! I've always washed and blow dried mine every day which I know is SO unhealthy for it! So last week I started washing every other day and air drying and it's been an adjustment! :) Dry shampoo could be key though!

  5. That dress is sooo cute! and that gif is me in the caribbean when there's no AC. I feel your pain. Hope you get it sorted.

  6. I've been to music midtown before. I like Collective Soul out of all of those bands.

  7. Thank you so much for everything you do.
