Good morning! I don’t know about you guys, but I am stoked it’s Friday!
We have a handful of friends coming into town this weekend, so there are several fun events and outings penciled into our calendars over the next few days. We are taking them to our favorite Mexican restaurant with karaoke later tonight, so that will definitely prove to be interesting.
Per usual, Fridays are meant for celebrating and sharing favorites. Below you will find a list of things that I have been loving this week, and I invite you to tell me your recent faves in the comments and link-up sections too!
Friday Favorites #74: Week of 1/30
• subtle eyebrow definer
I fought eyebrow pencils, shadows, and fillers for years. The first time I ever applied anything to fill in my eyebrows was about two years ago, and that was only for games and special nights out. I often get my eyebrows threaded, and the lady shaping my brows automatically filled them in with this pencil when she finished threading a couple of visits ago.
Unlike anything I’ve tried before, this pen felt super light and natural. I have been enjoying using one at home (on the days I actually do more makeup than mascara and concealer) and for nights out ever since!
My friends over at Van’s sent me a care package this week that included their new line of soft baked whole grain granola clusters.
Both the Cranberry Almond and Blueberry Walnut flavors are fantastic! The granola is soft and chewy, and you can easily grab a handful or two for a substantial snack at home or on-the-go.
I also love that they are gluten-free! I would have never known unless I looked at the package. I never used to think of having granola outside of breakfast and snack bars, but these bites had me digging in all day long!
• This video (and song) from Maroon 5
I have been crazy about the song Sugar for weeks now. Have any of you seen the video? It’s actual footage of Adam (swoon) and the guys from Maroon 5 literally crashing weddings and giving surprise performances during their receptions.
I might have actually died if that happened to us. #sodreamy
• this winter
I might regret saying this… but… this winter has been awesome!
After last year’s crazy polar vortex, I guess anything less (unbearably) freezing would seem great. As I was walking Roadie yesterday morning, I kept noticing patches on the ground without snow.
This would have never happened around the same time last year. So far, the temperatures have been considerably tolerable, so I really have nothing to complain about. It’s actually quite beautiful!
Now if we could only work on getting the sun to show it’s heat and face a little more often, that would be great.
• noodles on salads
As most of you already know, I will pretty much put anything on top of my salads. Veggies, fruit, nuts, seeds, cheese, you name it. Any time I have leftover noodles, I like to save a small amount to throw on top of my salads and mix things up.
I really enjoy the addition of carbs and couldn’t tell you why I don’t think to do it more often.
• 21 Animals Who Aren’t Even Trying At All via Buzzfeed
If one of these doesn’t make you smile, I’m not sure we could be friends.
• hanging ball parking guide
After two years of over and undershooting the ideal parking position in our garage, I finally nailed it.
Have you ever seen these tennis ball parking guides? I remember my parents having one while I was growing up. I’m so glad Scott brought it home for me this week. Total game changer!
If I’m counting correctly, I have been using this product on my hair after the shower and before a blow dry for over five years!
One bottle generally lasts me a long time (okay, maybe I don’t wash my hair that often…), and I love the extra coat of protection it provides from all the heat abuse my hair endures. I have blow dried my hair a couple times without it, and I have to say that it’s not as soft and controlled without it.
Definitely a beauty go-to!
