Friday Favorites!

Hi Friday- I am so happy to see you!!  The hubs and I have big plans for the weekend that will be taking place in Oshkosh, WI.  We have a wedding involving good friends and some catching up to do with the in-laws!

As like every other Friday- i’m linking up with some fellow bloggers to share my favorites for the week!


This week is Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Sale  and they have some great deals!  Usually, the bras are still a little more spendy (and for a large chested girl, they aren’t usually practical- I do not want OR need the push up.. ok??) but they were all marked $19.99 or less!  To me, that was a no brainer- especially when they still had my big size in cute and realistic bras!

There were so many options to pick from – bras, panties beauty products and even some Pink items are on sale!  Definitely check it out while it lasts!


I shared my Brother’s Couple Shower on the blog yesterday which featured homemade Oreo treats/gifts along with some homemade cookies!  You can read all about it here.  Their wedding is July 30 so we are all counting down the days!  He’s the last of us to get married so i’m sure it’s a little bittersweet for my parents!


I promise this is the last time i’ll mention this bag (I won this bag in a giveaway featured on Girls Meets Bow a few weeks back and was SO SO happy to receive it!!!) on the blog.  Well, I can’t make any promises it’s seriously one of my favorite items since I got it in the mail this past week!! I am using it this weekend for the first time… and SERIOUSLY there is SO much room in it!! I usually use my Vera Bradley weekender but this is seriously so much bigger.  And anything with a monogram is right up my alley 🙂



I recently came across this post and was so excited to learn of the places where the hubs, myself and friends could watch a few movies in the park under the stars!  If you’re in the Minneapolis/St.Paul area, you should definitely check this out!

Ever since I saw The Wedding Planner with Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey, i’ve always wanted to watch a movie in the park! It just seems so magical and fun!  I’d definitely have to bring along some popcorn and other treats/drinks as well… umm hello, you want me to go 3 hours WITHOUT eating and snack?! No thanks… Anyone do this in their area?! I’m already checking our calendar for nights we’re free to do this!


I have a serious obsession with Kendra Scott Jewelry.. I mean… her earrings, necklaces, bracelets… all of it!  I have quite a few pairs of her Elle and Danielle earrings and could seriously have one in every color.  They go with so much and make such a statement.  But with that said, they aren’t the cheapest earrings to purchase!  I’ve been obsessed with her Rayne necklace for the past year or two but I don’t love the price point and am always looking for a better deal!  While in Charming Charlie the other day, I came across these necklaces that are almost identical to the Kendra necklace mentioned above!  And Spoiler Alert- they’re $10!!

Kendra Scott ($90)                      Charming Charlie Dupe ($10)

Yes you read that right… $10!!  I’m sure there’s a bit of a difference (of course!) but for me, i’ll stick with the $10 ones!

Let me know if you like this feature on the blog- where I offer some great “dupes” for more pricier pieces?!


I just bought this CC Cream in the travel size (better to give it a try and LOVE it than buy the big one and HATE it!) yesterday and surprisingly I really like it!! It’s a lot lighter than my foundation and it still covers all the pigmented/blemishes perfectly!


On a side note- whoever thought of offering travel sizes was a GENIUS!  I also bought this bronzer in the “mini” travel size to give it a try and ended up falling in love with that one as well!

Hope everyone has a fabulous and fun Friday 🙂 I’ll be back next week, recapping our weekend and sharing a yummy (healthy) treat recipe!  And if you’d like to get my blog posts straight to your inbox, feel free to click the “Subscribe by Email” at the top!
