Oh heavens, thank goodness it’s Friday.
This is been a weird week. With the kids home on Monday, the week has felt rushed, crammed and crazy. I’m happy to see Friday morning today. #mamaneedsaweekend
Today, I’m linking up with Narci, Erika and Andrea and sharing some of my favorite things from this week.
Lots of little things to make us happy on a Friday.
Happy weekend to YOU!
On Tuesday, we shared our love of Pinterest on Show & Tell Tuesday. We were asked to share our favorite pins (to which, I have many)…but last week, I saw this one pin and I really, really, really love it…
Love this so much.
Sometimes, I think as women (especially busy mamas), we don’t make time for hobbies or our own needs and interests, so this quote really encouraged me. I wish I could find the source for it because I would follow the person…but nevertheless, I found it inspirational. You can see my Quotes and Words To Live By board here.
Heather S. from Plano (a neighboring city) sent me this email last week…
Woohoo! Thank YOU friends for recommending this Clinique Moisture Surge to me so that I could share it with the group. Seriously, I love this stuff so much and am so happy that you guys told me to try it! Thank you Heather for the sweet email and for allowing me to share it. xo
So, after we discussed the Clinique Moisture Surge, several of you told me to try Clinique’s City Block Sheer SPF 25 which leads us to…
Oh my word! Okay…another winner (seriously, why have I not heard of this stuff before???)! I like to wear an SPF daily and after I mentioned that, I had several people comment/email that I should try this City Block Sheer because it DOUBLES AS A PRIMER.
I put my regular moisturizer on and then apply this in lieu of both my normal SPF and my face primer. After that, I proceed with…
…my tinted moisturizer/illuminator mix and go. I love this SPF so much that I bought another tube to keep in my gym bag. Don’t just take my word for it, read the reviews, they’re stellar!
And in case you forgot about the above picture…
…you take one drop of your foundation or tinted moisturizer (right now, I’m using Bobbi Brown’s tinted moisturizer in Medium Tint) and combine it with one drop of your illuminator (I use Nars Hot Sand and loooove it…read the reviews! Apparently everyone loves it!) and it really makes your foundation/tinted moisturizer look better! Instead of looking flat/dull/chalky, it adds a bit of life to it and really makes it blend better and your overall complexion look better.
See the pic above: I have one drop of each and I combine them together and apply it with my beauty blender. Try this tip! I love it!
Shoes, shoes, shoes and more shoes were a fourth favorite this week! I posted myself wearing two different pairs of shoes and they are both my favorites…
And then of course, these babies are always faves in my closet…
I heart the white Converse. Oh how I love them so :). I love the “shoreline” style because you don’t tie them. You just slip them on and go.

And I’m finishing off my week with a simple (yet beautiful), easy (yet delicious) dessert…
This takes all of the bells and whistles from Bananas Foster and puts into one quick little trifle recipe.
Happy Friday friends!
Love you all so much!
