Ahhhhh we made it to Friday!

I’m sorry I’ve been MIA this week. It turned out to be a crazier week than I expected with a new opportunity. I am in much need of a happy hour today, so let’s get right to my favorites from the week!

Favorite Quote



Except most nights this week I wanted to skip the beginning and just pour the wine 🙂 #Anyonewithme?

Favorite Laugh


Have you seen Ellen’s favorite kids video? It a compilation of Ellen’s favorite kid moments from her show through out the year. It’s a great 3 minute pick me up if you need it!

Favorite Concealer

When someone asks me what my favorite beauty product is I usually start talking about my foundation or eyeliner. However, I’ve realized that the product that does the most for me is my NARS Radiant Concealer. Therefore I have to start saying it’s my favorite product when someone asks. Since I have darker circles under my eyes than most (thanks Grandma!) it’s been my best friend through out my twenties, especially this week! If you are looking for a new concealer, I suggest trying NARS, I love how creamy it glides on and doesn’t get cakey by the end of the day.

Favorite Beach


Looking and reminiscing about this picture this week made me want to book a flight to the Bahamas. I can hear the waves calling my name while looking at this picture. If you need a quick beach fix check out my Nassau Bahamas: Girls Trip! post for inspiration to book yourself a tropical getaway.

Favorite Current Book

I just finished Rising Strong this week and boy was it a great reminder to be brave and vulnerable in all areas of life. Nine times out of ten you will fail but you can always pick yourself back up. That’s easier said than done for most people, but if you are looking for an inspiring read check out Rising Strong. I had stumbled on it accidentally at the library while thinking I was reading Uninvited and I’m so glad I did!

Can’t wait to check out everyone else’s favorites from the week. I also promise to be back on Monday with a yummy travel post 🙂

Have a great weekend friends!
