Favorites on the 13th

It’s time to talk favorites again. While this has certainly not been my most favorite of weeks, there were several little wonderful things that helped remind me that no matter how bad of a week or time we are going through, there are so many beautiful things around us always. I’d like to think that my favorite angel, my Mom was one of those :) She'll always be my favorite.

[But, I'm still a bit superstitious that this not-so-fantastic week just happened to fall on the week of Friday the 13th...]

Let's get started with Friday Favorites!

Zoya in "Perrie"

I’ve been an Essie girl for a while now but as of late, we’ve just had a love/hate relationship. I’ve had the WORST time finding colors I love in my local Target and Ulta. It’s always the same ole colors that look like what I already have at home. So, I decided to venture out. My eyes immediately caught one of the prettiest nail colors I’ve ever seen. It’s the coolest Summer shade of purple. Zoya in "Perrie." It goes on so smoothly, I only needed one coat, AND it lasts long! I can't wait to add to my Zoya collection! What colors do you love?

The Bargain Blonde: Confession Session Returns

I love posts that touch my heart but I also dig posts that make me crack up hysterically. Lindsey (The Bargain Blonde) did just that with her post yesterday. If you're ready for some super hilarious snarky attitude regarding Magic Mike madness and Emily Maynard's jackpot of not-so-special jewelry, check it out here!

Big Brother Season 14

Okay, so it might have been the only show I actually had the chance to watch this week other than The Bachelorette but I think this season of Big Brother is going to be a good one. I've never watched a full season of the show but I might [might] end up watching this one, especially since my brother knows someone on the show! The number of times this show comes on a week leaves me feeling a little nervous though. #TeamBoogie

P!nk ["Blow Me One Last Kiss"]

I needed some new songs on my iPhone so I logged onto iTunes and within a minute saw the above song listed as the top 2 single! Before I could even finish listening to the sample, I had to buy it. It's a total girl power song about being done with a toxic relationship [P!nk is one of the greatest when it comes to those songs, isn't she?]
If you're offended by some foul language, it might not be your cup of tea :)

Leopard Print Mailbox

I found this leopard print mailbox on Pinterest [you can follow me here!] and just fell in love. I'm obsessed with leopard and cheetah print so this is right up my alley. I'd be the coolest house on the block ;)

What are your favorites this week? Be sure to link up with Miss Lindsey!
Have a happy Friday the 13th! I'm off to FINALLY see the Katy Perry movie tonight! I'll be singing the whole time :)

Your brother knows Mike Boogie? Haha Big Brother Legend! I think this is going to be a good season too, it usually takes me awhile to like the newbies, but I have a few favourites already!

Anonymous A said...

I love Pink! I can't believe she has a new song out that and I didn't know. Thanks for the info!


Megan said...

Yeahhhh for Big Brother! This is actually only my second season of watching it so I'm not in as deep as some people but I love it...and I suppose still learning things about the show itself!

The mailbox is so cute! Love it. And I'm always buying new nailpolish. My fave polish names are from OPI...always so witty.

I will definitely have to check out the Zoya. I have been having the same problem with Essie.

I love that mailbox too, but I don't think the husband would agree.

Holly said...

Always great to remind ourselves of the good things in our lives and our favorite things! I hope it brightened your day! And I hope you have a great weekend that makes up for your not so great week. Keep smiling, pretty girl!! Love you! xoxo
