Friday Favorites ~ 5.30.14

Friday, May 30, 2014
I can't believe it's already time for Friday Favorites again...yay for 4 day work weeks! :)
Linking up with some lovely {and hilarious} ladies...

... Beauty ...

I got my first professional spray tan last week for Michelle's wedding (this chick wasn't going to be the only pasty pale one in pictures! lol). I went to GLOW in Bexley, which is right near downtown Columbus, and I am SO happy with how it turned out! It was airbrushed on by the owner, Jennifer, who was incredibly professional and helpful.

It was a bit awkward at first...I'll be honest. Hi stranger I just met, here are my boobs! But, I wanted the tan to be all over, with as little tan lines as possible. This was my choice, she said some people go all out (completely naked) and some people choose to keep some clothing/underwear items on. She was so professional though, I got over the embarrassment really quickly and it was no big deal! Plus, when researching places I found out she is an RN, so I figure she's seen it all ;)

I followed her before and after care instructions to a T...and it turned out perfectly! It looked great for Michelle's wedding day and has held up really well. It's a week later today and it's just starting to fade. Absolutely worth $40 if you ask me! I will definitely be going to Jennifer again next time I need a good spray tan!

... Song ...

Absolutely love Coldplay, they are one of my (if not my #1) favorite bands. I think they make some of the best music of our generation and I am so excited to get their new CD this weekend. They are one of the only artists I still by physical CDs for instead of downloading! Do you have any artists you do this for??


... Recipe ...

If you can even call this a recipe ;) I will admit I really don't cook very much so this is often the extent of my culinary skills. But it is my favorite lunch and what I eat basically everyday. Spinach salad, with feta cheese, balsamic dressing, and some combo of fruit and nuts. 

... Movie ...

Is any one else excited to see this?? I think it looks fantastic! I love that Hollywood has been remaking some of the classic fairy tales in a more "adult" way and portraying the dark side of them, which is more true to the original written stories. And I can't wait to see how Angelina portrays the character - I think she will knock it out of the park. She's a great actress (although I will always be Team Jennifer ;)


... Funnies ...

Celebrities Reading Mean Tweets - literally cracks me up every time...I think my favorite from this round is Gary Oldman.

... Warm Fuzzies ...
Another reminder why dogs are just the best creatures in the world...

Have a great weekend!! Aaron and I are headed back up to northern Ohio to celebrate our anniversary this weekend :))


  1. Haha, I just sent that meme of the cat to my mom the other day-- so hilarious! Your spray tan looks great & so natural! I've thought about trying them out but my skin is so sensitive, I'm nervous of a reaction. I'm on the fence about Maleficient- I think it looks really well done and Angelina seems to be the perfect person for the role, for sure!

  2. I love watching the celebrities reading mean tweets- i only discovered it last week and have watched them on repeat! Your spray tan looks fantastic - if only it wasn't so expensive to keep up right lol!! Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  3. LOL The celebs reading mean tweets is hilarious! I can watch those all day! Loving your spray tan! I've never got one because I feel like it would be so awkward!! Have an amazing weekend!

    <3, Pamela

  4. Those mean tweets on Jimmy Kimmel are amazing! I can't wait to see Maleficent, I hope it's as good as it's hyped up to be. I haven't heard this Coldplay song before, but I'm on board so thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend!

  5. Aaand now I finally know why our cat cries - it's to come in the bathroom with me haha. Love that poster. Have a wonderful anniversary trip with your sexy tan!

  6. Big fan of spray tan's over here! I am so excited to see Maleficent, we are going with some friends next Thursday!

  7. I want to see Malificient too- maybe this Sunday!

  8. I love spray tans! I used Sally Hansen spray on legs the other weekend and it looked so good, I am dying to go get sprayed!

  9. Your spray tan came out fabulous!! I feel that way whenever met a new waxer.....hi nice to meet you I'm Amanda and yeah soooooo :)

    That cat one cracked me up so cute! Turn signals in the state of FL are nonexistent! Thanks so much for linking up!!

  10. Love celebrity mean tweets! Sooo funny! I've yet to get a spray tan but yours turned out great! And I'll always be Team Jennifer, too even though I want to see Maleficient :) Happy Friday!

  11. Yay for spray tan! I wish there was a place around here that did them! It looks great on you! I love that salad recipe too! :) That puppy funny is too cute! :) And yes, turning signals shouldn't of even been created because no one uses them!
