12/09/2016 19 Comments

Cheers to it finally be Friday!

I’m excited because it’s time for the weekend and Christmas parties and it’s also time for part one of my first giveaway!!

Since it’s my first holiday season as a blogger I wanted to send some holiday cheer to my readers. And what better way to spread the cheer than with a giveaway!

Look for the link after the last favorite of the week!

Gifts under $20 for a planner

If you missed my post on Wednesday where I talked about my favorite gifts for the person who loves goals and planning things, you can find it here. Everything I mentioned is under $20 and personally owned by me, I guess I like goals and making plans 😉

Mad Lib Theater with Chris Pratt

I love Jimmy Fallon’s Mad Lib Theater Sketch that he does on The Tonight Show. This week he had Chris Pratt on and they were a hilarious duo. I loved that they added a Christmas element to their bit too. If you need a good laugh today I suggest checking this out.

Origins Charcoal Clear Pores Mask

Ok so I’m not going to put up a picture of me using this mask, because its just down right scary, but it is my  new favorite thing in my skincare routine. I’ve been using it once a week and can feel my pores unclogging and my skin becoming much smoother and even in its tone. If you need a new skincare product to try out, I highly recommend starting with this one 🙂

Tom Brady’s 201th Win

I know I’m going to lose some of you here but this was such a big favorite of mine this week. I’m so grateful to have grown up watching Brady as the quarterback of my team. He’s brought a lot of joy to my life and I’m so happy for him, it’s a big accomplishment in his career and he deserves it. Way to go TB12! Let’s keep winning 🙂

Victoria Secrets Fashion Show 2016

Have to watch with ice cream & wine 😉

Somehow I found the time to watch the Victoria Secrets Fashion Show on my DVR this week. Its better that way because I can fast forward through all the commercials and segments I don’t care to watch lol. I loved that it was in Paris this year where the backdrop to the show was magical. The segments where the models were in the city were some of my favorites. Paris really is fabulous and the perfect setting for the glamorous show.  Most of my favorites aren’t walking the VS runway anymore but I tune in for the few that are left. I love Adriana Lima, she has always been my favorite. I think she looks healthy, her eyes are gorgeous and her personality always shines through. I also have become a fan of Gigi Hadid because I think she shows some personality on the runway too. Who are your favorites?! I also loved Lady Gaga and all her outfits!
