I am so happy it’s Friday!! This week has been long and slow, after getting over a cold at the start of the week I am ready for next week when I will get into the routine I had originally planned for myself (which includes lots of baking, writing and yoga-ing). Standing between my Friday Favorites and my new routine is a weekend full of cleaning, organizing, and unpacking. Yes- my suitcases are still full on the floor – sorry mom.
// Shake It Off // Pizza // Hawaii //
\\ Beauty Blender \\ Mugs \\ Chris Pratt \\
1.// Favorite Music Video: Taylor Swift – Shake It Off
2.// Favorite Pizza Combo: Spinach, Feta, Italian Sausage, and Caramelized Onion
Ben and I decided once a week we would have homemade pizza and movie night and have so far come up with a list of 5 movies and 35 pizza combos to try (you can tell we are foodies). We planned that this week would be our first attempt at homemade dough, but then we had the above pizza combo from a neighborhood Italian restaurant DeLuca’s and decided we can put off homemade pizza for one more week, DeLuca’s is calling our name, again!
3.// Favorite Daydream: Hawaii
After a week of on and off again freezing cold rain I am daydreaming about being somewhere warm and sunny. If you could book me a one way ticket to Hawaii I would be so grateful!
4.// Favorite Beauty Assistant: Beauty Blender
As a dance kid when I grew up and saw everyone wearing makeup I steered clear of the “goop” and opted to go au naturel. As I have grown up I learned from a good friend how to wear makeup to enhance my features and not feel so goopy and overdone. While I am still getting adjusted to lipstick in a color other than red, these beauty blenders have become a staple for everyday use. I have found them to be perfect for applying my favorite BB Cream evenly and better than I ever did with my fingers. I definitely use less cream with a blender than I did previously, and in the two week’s I’ve used the blender I have had more compliments on my makeup than ever before. It’s my new favorite toy!
5.// Favorite Etsy Find: Tea/Coffee Mugs
In our house tea is the ever flowing drink of choice for all of the boys, but for me it’s a toss up, tea or wine. I saw this mug, laughed out loud, and decided it must be mine! Seriously it could not be more perfect.
6.// Favorite Celeb: Chris Pratt
This man gets my vote favorite celeb for two reasons.
1. He handled his ALS Ice Bucket Challenge like a champ. If you haven’t seen it you must watch! Watch that here.
2. He coordinated an event at The Children’s Hospital in LA and spent 3 hours with the patients dressed in his Guardians of the Galaxy costume. Read that here.
And he isn’t that bad to look at either.
Question of the Week:
The way my office set up at the moment I use the desktop computer as a TV and my laptop for work. What are your favorite TV shows right now? Mind you this just needs to be for background noise so it doesn’t have to actually be a good show, my favorites are The Real Housewives Series, Naked and Afraid, Dance Moms, and Catfish. I watch them all through a free tv website so it doesn’t have to be in season. Leave your answer in the comments. And GO!
