Friday Favorites

Hello, Friday!  We've got a big weekend ahead of us - dinner plans with friends, the farmers market, a wedding, and house hunting on Monday!  5pm cannot come soon enough... I'm definitely ready to get the party started.  Since the Five for Friday link up is taking a summer break, I thought I'd join my girl Amanda from Meet @ The Barre, for her new Friday Favorites linkup!  Here's what we've been loving over here...

Favorite Snack:  Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzel Slims
I cannot stop eating these things.  They are sooo good and it's way too easy to polish off a bag in one sitting - with my husband of course, I wouldn't do that alone... Just make sure you have a napkin on hand because they can be a little melty.  I may have had to make an extra TJ's stop this week just to pick up another bag of these little bites of heaven!


Favorite Nail Polish:  Bikini So Teeny by Essie
I've been seeing this periwinkle blue nail polish everywhere so I finally had to pick up a bottle for myself.  I'm happy to report everyone was right because I'm in love. The color is so pretty and reminds of me of bright, blue skies.  I've been wearing it for two weeks straight now!


Favorite Pin: Turn Off Your Straightner
I NEED this!  It would cut so much unnecessary stress out of my life.  At least once a week, I leave my apartment and this sense of panic washes over me thinking that I left my straightner/curling iron turned on.  It never is and I'm pretty sure my products have an auto-turn off after a certain amount of time but still.  I need this.
{Follow me on Pinterest here!}


Favorite Lip Product:  Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick
I received this lipstick as part of my birthday gift from Sephora and it has quickly become my go to.  My biggest requirements from a lip product are moisturization (is that a word?) and long lasting color and this lipstick meets both of those.  I have the color N9 Copper Pink and it's the perfect shade for everyday.   There are 50 shades so I'm sure a few more will be joining my ever growing collection!


Favorite Post:  Mia at Make Me Up Mia
Mia is a friend I've been lucky enough to meet through blogging and unfortunately, her family has been through the ringer lately.  Her younger brother, Christian, was involved in a very serious ATV accident this past September.  Due to money, insurance and the extent of his injuries, Christian has recently hit a roadblock in his recovery.  You can read more about the families story HERE and please say a few prayers!


Have a great weekend and I'll see you back here on Monday!
Linking up with AmandaLaurenJennie and Rebecca

  2. When I got the lipstick I wasn't so sure about it at first but I was pleasantly surprised at how the color was natural enough to work and you're right- it's so moisturizing! Also, that rug is perfect, whenever I used to curl my hair I would get so paranoid I left my curling iron on and plugged in! It sounds like you guys have a fun, but busy weekend ahead!

  4. I recently got a new straightener that doesn't automatically turn off and I'm sure I will burn the house down soon. lol. Loving that blue polish! I've never tried a periwinkle color before, but I've seen a few people wearing it now and it looks really good. Have a good weekend!

  6. LOL at that door mat! Ben made me get a plug that automatically turns off after an hour after one too many of those did I?/didn't I? moments. Happy househunting (again ;))!

  12. Chocolate covered pretzels are my favorite. I could eat pounds of them. I wish we had a Trader Joe's--My sister always shops there and she finds amazing things. Have a wonderful weekend!

  13. The Trader Joe's that I go to is within walking distance and I feel like I go there way too much haha. Those pretzels look so good though. I was thrilled when I saw the greek yogurt chunky guacamole had returned, because they didn't have it for two weeks! I'll have to check out that lipstick too, it sounds nice. I'm hoping to go to the farmers market this weekend too. Have a wonderful weekend! :-)

  14. I totally need that door mat! I can't tell you how many times I am half way through my day and realize I may have forgotten to unplug something! When I lived in Boston I would always call my landlord and have her check for me!!

  15. Um, those pretzels sound like they are on another level of deliciousness. Why isn't there a TJ's close by?! So jealous. That nail polish shade also is gorgeous. I'd go get it myself if I didn't fear the wrath of my husband if I came home with another bottle of nail polish. :) Have a fun weekend!

  22. Loving that nail polish. Essie is the best. I just picked up a pale pink that I love for every day wear (Ballet Slippers), but thinking the light blue would be fun for a change too:)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I need that mat! I've left my straightener on way too many times and always come home thanking The Lord my house didn't burn down and kill my sweet Pixie!!

  24. So it's probably a good thing that I don't have a Trader Joe's anywhere near me. ;) I love seeing your beauty favorites!!

    Have a great weekend!
    xo Always, Abby

  29. please tell me how you get your nails so perfect? do you paint them yourself? and I need that mat! I've gotten in the habit of unplugging mine because I do the same thing. as soon as I get on the road to work, I think I've left it on and start stressing about my house catching on fire with the dogs inside! it's always off. HA!

  30. Those pretzels will be the death of me. Definitely going to look for them the next time I make a stop at Trader Joe's. I have a similar nail polish color, it really is perfect for summer!

  31. Love those pretzels! Salty and sweet is the best combo. I cannot imagine something like that happening to my family, I'll definitely be saying a prayer for her family tonight.

  32. Stopping by from #H54F. I NEED that floormat too! Also, if you love Bikini So Teeny, you should try Essie's Lapiz of Luxury and OPI's You're Such a Budapest. I have 2 new favorite snacks--Birthday Cake M&Ms and Vanilla Creme Mini Peeps--but I need to try those pretzel slims now!
