Happy Friday!

I want to say I look forward to sharing my Friday Favorites with you every week. I also enjoy reading through yours because I get so many good ideas for outfits, makeup, hair, things to watch, books to read and general tips!

Here are my favorites this week:

Quirks, Phobia’s and Nicknames


Everyone has quirks and it was so much fun to read through them during Momfessionals link up party, Show & Tell this week. It was interesting to see what makes everyone unique and what quirks I share with others. I feel like I got to know some of my favorites bloggers better. Check out my quirks, phobia’s and why this blog is called Cupcake N Dreams :-).

Enjoying October-Weekending

Saratoga State Park

Last weekend, before all this rain in New York, there were some perfect fall days and I fully took advantage of enjoying them outside. I linked up with another favorite link up, Weekending, from Blovedboston.

Tailgating Cheat Day


I try to follow the everything in moderation model for my daily food goals. Part of me doesn’t like to use the phrase cheat day, but I definitely ease up on my goals on Sundays. Thank god football coincides with Sundays because I throughly enjoy the food of the season. My cousin made a fabulous beer chili with pasta and hot dogs this past Sunday when we were tailgating at the Patriots game. I devoured it and thoroughly enjoyed it with one of my favorite beers of the season, Sam Adams Oktoberfest. Enjoying all the yummy food this weekend had me thinking how much it is a favorite of mine during this season.


New & Old Beauty Faves

I went to Sephora this week to pick up my favorite item from Drybar, Triple Sec 3-1 texturizing spray and I ended up with a new favorite. I picked up a Dr Jart + Charcoal Mask to see what all the hype was about and boy did I find out. It was definitely a sight to see a the mask on my face but I really felt like it did its job of clearing my pores out. It didn’t tingle and smelled good too. I’m adding this product to my rotation of masks.
