Friday Favorites ~ 6.27.14

Friday, June 27, 2014
Happy Friday! It's been a long week and I've been looking forward to this weekend since...well last Sunday evening ;) 

Let's jump right into this week's Friday Favorites...

{1 music}

Anything by Ziggy Marley...
...who Aaron and I just happen to be going to see in concert tonight right after work! Super excited for'll be a great time to just relax, have a couple drinks, and listen to great music :)

{2 drink}

I have re-discovered my love for tea this week...and gone through an entire box of Peppermint Herbal Tea. It is so delicious and perfect pick-me-up in the early morning right when I get to work (I am not a coffee drinker) ...and helps me relax in the evenings before bed. I'm going to have to go pick up some more this weekend! What types of tea do you ladies drink? Although I'm pretty obsessed with the peppermint right now, I'd love some other suggestions!



{3 purchase}

Since Christmas, I have been saving money every paycheck, like a good little girl ;) 
It was actually a New Year's resolution of mine to start to build up some sort of savings...but it's starting to burn a hole in my pocket. 

So what to buy?? Well, I'm desperate need of a new purse - since I haven't had a new one since Christmas of 2012! Sooo, I think I'm going to treat myself to one...but nothing too over the top though. 

I've had my eye on this Michael Kors Jet Set Tote for awhile now, and it's reasonably priced, so that might be the winner! What do you think? Any purses you have that are a great investment and classic pieces to own, but aren't going to break the bank??

I am in the market for a new foundation and concealer...and possibly new mascara too. I've been a loyal user of Revlon's Color Stay liquid foundation for the past 4 years and I'm getting tired of it. Just want to mix it up and try something new. 

I like med/full coverage, build-able, liquid foundation and liquid concealer with a brightening effect (for those pesky dark under eyes).

I am really interested in the new Bare Minerals and have heard from a couple people that it's pretty great, has anyone tried it??

As for mascara...I've used L'oreal Carbon Black for as long as I can remember. It's great, but again, I'd like to try something new. I always end up coming back to it though, so maybe I should just stick with it ;) 

What are your foundation, mascara, and concealer suggestions??

{5 funnies}

And of course...have to wrap it up with this week's favorite funnies :)

The struggle is real.

Boob Sweat

While some girls count calories, I'm over here like...

Deedee to a T...except not with cheese, but when I have corn, peanut butter, or apples...


  1. I have been dying for a Michael Kors purse very similar to that one. I say go for it!

  2. I love Ziggy also! Bobs sons have great music (you should check out Jr. Gong - Damian Marley). Also loving the Michael Kors girlie!

  3. Great job saving up! That bag looks like a great investment pieces.

  4. Have so much fun at the concert - I'm sure it's going to be a blast!! I love the tote that you're planning to buy and that color is going to be great for all seasons!! Have a wonderful weekend!!

  5. I've heard great things about bare skin! Really want to try it out.

  6. I tried the liquid bare minerals and I loved it but you have to buy the brush with it as well and that sometimes makes me irrationally angry. Yeah for saving!! Try TJMaxx they always have amazing bags including a lot of Michael Kors ones that are still in the stores!

  7. Hah truth about the cheese (or any food w/ animals) and now the cat begs, too! I like the bareMinerals - especially since I've never tried a foundation before. It's super light and easy to use. I also found the brush on eBay for about $10 less than retail FYI! I say go for that bag ;) Happy weekend!

  8. hahaha delicious points! love it. i have heard great things about bare minerals, but i myself just started using revlon color stay so i'm happy at the moment ;) have fun at the concert!

  9. I use the new BE foundation and love it! You have to buy the brush to go with it though if you are going to purchase it.

  10. I love your mentions of Dede always :-)

    I LOVE totes & MK, great pick!

  11. Omg! Big boob sweat season! LOL! Amen to that! :) I seen all your pics of the concert on IG over the weekend! Looks like it was awesome! Yay for a new purse! I love the MK one pictured and all of it's compartments! My favorite brands of purses are Coach and Guess! :) Bare minerals makeup is my fav! I use the powder so I'm not sure about the new stuff but I'm sure it's awesome like everything else! I'm just like you, always sticking to the same mascara because I can never find one that's better but recently I tried Loreal Butterfly and it's amazing! :)
