Guys, this is my last Friday Favorites of the year!
Where did 2018 go?
It’s always a little bittersweet to see another year go by.
Next week, I have loads of blogging (including MY VERY FAVORITE POST OF THE YEAR!), but no favorites. So, for the very last time in 2018, I’m linking up with my friends Erika, Narci and Andrea and sharing some of my favorite things from this week. Here’s hoping you have a very merry weekend! xo
Last Friday, I asked you guys for a new show to binge watch while I fold laundry/eat lunch/mundane things like that and the vast majority of you told me to watch…
…so I started it, and OH MY GOODNESS! I LOVE IT!
Okay, a few thoughts and disclaimers…
1: I’ve only finished the first two episodes, so maybe (but probably not), I’ll end up hating it. But, so far, I really like it!
2: I was floored when I realized the main character was also in House of Cards and played Rachel. They are two totally different roles, and she knocks both out of the ballpark. She is dazzling (that’s right, I said dazzling) in this one!!
3: There is a lot of (in my opinion), unnecessary bad language in this show. Just a heads up that the language makes this show probably rated R. So far, I haven’t seen anything else (violence, sex, etc) that might be offensive to some, but I wanted to make sure you knew about the language.
4: The same lady who was behind The Gilmore Girls (Amy Sherman-Palladino) is behind this show too, so the writing is AMAZING!!! You know how they talk fast and kind of sing-songy in Gilmore Girls? Well, they do in this show too. It’s brilliant writing!
Anyway, thank YOU very much for the much needed Grey’s Anatomy break 🙂 . This show is charming!
These just arrived at my house this week, and I’m already giddy…
…yes, I finally bought packing cubes.
You guys have been telling me for years that I need them, so now, I have them. I bought three different sets in three different colors for my family (I bought different colors to keep things organized, I thought two people could share each color). I was worried about the added weight in my suitcase, but they’re super light. Online, I believe it says they weigh about a pound all together. So, if you have tips about how best to use them, please share. I just need to go somewhere now!!
I thought I’d share a little look at a few of my favorite cozy things…
…all of this stuff would make fun holiday gifts! These are my coziest things in the closet!
1: A blardigan! You can’t get cozier than this cardigan! They come in many colors, but I love this navy one.
2: A fun tee! I bought this one on our town square, but Jane.com is a great place to buy seasonal (and just plain fun!) tees. Kensington and I bought several there for the holiday season.
3: These pj pants from Old Navy! They’re soft, they’re stretchy and they wash and dry without shrinking. Amen and amen.
4: Cozy accessories! I love me a fun hat and festive scarf. Both of these can take us into winter with all the coziness we need.
5: Ugg slippers! These are the most worn item in my closet. I love them so much! I would order them true to size and they’ll fit a little snug but then quickly mold and stretch to the shape of your foot. Mine are always just a tad tight when I first get them, but now, they’re insanely cozy!
Two last little gift ideas for those of you who still need to grab a few more things…
…these super popular Tory Burch totes are 33% off right now! And…
…my short Uggs are 25% off right now. These babies are so comfy!! I’ve walked many a mile in these shoes.
Last but not least…
…I’m sharing 12 PEPPERMINT & CHOCOLATE CHRISTMAS RECIPES!
It’s the perfect marriage of flavors for the holidays! You can see my yummy recipes HERE.
That’s it for this Friday! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, friends! xo
