Friday Faves (a day late!)

It's finally Friday. (and since I'm posting this on SATURDAY...I wish it still was Friday)
Even though it was a 4 day week, this week just felt extra long...but that might have been since I had the flu for a good portion of the week. Ick!

Anyway, it's been awhile since I've done one of my Saturday Friday Faves I thought I'd share with you a few of my latest and greatest discoveries:


I started using fresh Sugar lip care this fall. Normally by this time, my lips are dry, chapped, and kinda ick. However this "ultra-nourishing" tinted lip care line has kept my lips in great shape this season. Though they are a little pricier than chap stick  I think they are worth every penny! My favorite colors are the Rose and Honey!
My cousin's wife (who is also my friend) did my hair the other night. I never buy products when I go to the salon (which I'm sure is really annoying to my stylist), but I have to say: this product changed my life. It made my hair look ah-maz-ing (and my hair does not ever look ah-maz-ing)! The volume, lift, yummy scent, oh and all night hold--made me a believer of hair miracles in a can.  What are your tips and tricks for teasing your hair?

I've always loved the look of Longchamp bags. They're classic and structured, without being too grown up. I finally broke down and (thanks to a birthday gift card from my brother and sister-in-law) bought the Planetes bag. It's similar to the classic le pilage, but is slightly larger, has thicker material, and is more structured. I honestly think a bag like this was a fantastic purchase as longchamp has proven to be timeless.

I recently found this shampoo and conditioner at target. I was on my way to the gym when I realized: I don't have shampoo, conditioner, or socks. Awesome. I bought the Brazilian Keratin Therapy set by Organix because they were on sale, and because I have very wavy unmanageable hair when I don't style it. It couldn't have been a better purchase, this product works wonders on my hair: It's manageable when it isn't styled, it dries straight, and it holds the straightness for a day or two! I'm absolutely sold on this brand and can't wait to buy and try more of their products!

And of course my latest guilty pleasure "Nashville." Mindless television, over the top drama, and country music... I never thought a Wednesday night could be so magical.
I'll leave you with a song ("Telescope") from the show:

Enjoy your weekend friends & Thanks for reading.


  1. Love your list. Happy early Thanksgiving!

  2. I love my Longchamps! They're the best!

  3. I just got my birthday "gift" from sephora for beauty card members. It had the clear Sugar and Rose Sugar & I'm liking it a lot.

    Love the bag too! I've been looking at a similar one!
