Friday Favorites and an Announcement

Friday is finally here! It has been a busy week so I look forward to doing a little relaxing this weekend [and also seeing Magic Mike a second time. My friend is "dragging" me to go. Darn her.] I will also be watching THE OLYMPICS! I can't believe they will be here so soon and I practically LIVE for the Opening and Closing Games. Who else will be watching with me?

Now, on to my favorites this past week. 

Zoya Nail Polish

You may have read on a previous Friday that I became obsessed with my very first Zoya nail polish purchase.

This pretty polish in Myrta is currently on my nails and I LOVE it. I snatched up another color as well and will go more into depth in a future beauty review post :) Bottom line - go buy some Zoya and thank me later!

Matchbox Twenty - "She's So Mean"

I have a confession: I've been listening to a Matchbox Twenty playlist this whole week at work. I LOVE them. All of their songs take me back to the best times [the 90s, (and early 00s) duh.]

So, it just kind of makes sense for me to be obsessed with their NEW single, "She's So Mean." While I don't like mean girls, this song is catchy. The best line - "She's got a wicked sense of humor. Can't believe what she says."

The Vampire Diaries

I started watching this show a few weeks ago on Netflix during my lunch breaks. Yes, I am only on Season One. HOW did I NOT watch this show before?
No one told me I was going to fall head over heels in love with Stefan Salvatore [Paul Wesley]

Yes. I just don't get the whole Ian Somerhalder thing. *Gasp*
And people have told me I'll fall in love with his character, Damon, but I am doubtful. 

I'll just let this quote speak for itself :)

How beautiful is this gold and peach table setting? The event planner in me is going crazy. I mean, look at the texture and shape of those gold chargers, if you can even call them that! These colors look wonderful together. Just wonderful.

If you're not already, come follow me on Pinterest :)

Now, on to a completely un-related note [except it is one of my favorite hobbies!] I have a fun, little announcement.

The first of the After Sunset necklaces has been listed on Etsy!
These Golden Twist Necklaces will go perfectly with your Golden Twist Bracelets and more colors are on the way! AND, even better news - a whole NEW design is on its way to the store! Check out After Sunset here and as always, let me know if you have any questions :)
[Use coupon code FREESHIPJULY for free shipping until Tuesday!]

So, what are your favorites this week? Better yet, link them up with Lindsey! :)
That's all for now! Wishing you all a happy Olympic weekend!

I just started the Vampire Diaries too. I was dead set against it but was forced into it by the gift of Season 1 on DVD. I just bought season 2. Damon does definitely grow on you! But I was an Ian Somerhalder fan to begin with.

Jenn said...

The necklace is SO pretty! Well done, girl :)

Leanna Vera said...

I love Zoya! Do you have an account on their website yet? If not, they have a share the love program that gives away coupons to new members! If you use this link ( you'll get one.

I really like the necklace. I'm so happy that your shop is doing so well!

Alisa Marie said...

Love that Zoya nail polish - great color!

Shayna said...

That nail polish is pretty! Where did you get it?

Hilary said...

Love the new necklaces! Have a great weekend!!

kaity said...

hallelujah you're team Stefan! he's my absolute favorite. you MIGHT fall in love with season 2 Damon, but probably not in a way that will ever replace Stefan - this is the path my emotions took. Damon gets sweeter and more appealing as time goes on, but really, he just can't compete with all the yummy awesomeness that is Stefan Salvatore. plus Ian Somerhalder has some crazy eyes+eyebrows going on.

Lindsey said...

You talented jewelry designer you! I am so happy and proud of you!

I used to JAM OUT to Matchbox 20. Like it was on repeat in my car when I as 16. Totally listening to this song while typing this comment and it is making me happy.

I got a Zoya in a birchbox and I was impressed with quality. Just didn't love the color. It was kinda a blue gray which isnt really my thang. However, I love the color you got!!!


Sheena Rae said...

Stopping in from the linkup! I love Vampire Diaries and that song! Happy Friday!

Chelsea Coleen said...

Stephanie Galli said...

Sami said...

Love the Zoya polish and glad you are watching Vamp Diaries! I loveee that show so much.. my favorite ever! I was initially Team Stefan for the 1st few seasons then switched to Team Damon. I can't wait to see if you change your mind too :)

Brianna said...

You're only in season one, that's why you don't love Ian/Damon yet (: TRUST, you willlllll! Love that zoya polish!!

Amanda said...

I LOVE the gold silverware. IF I was getting married, I would have to have it as part of the place setting.

And I love that necklace. I also like the bracelet. I may need them for Gator games!

Ashley @ The Sweet Life said...

Love the new necklace!

I can't believe you're just now watching Vampire'll love it even more with every season. And I hated Ian/Damon in the beginning too, but it changed as the show went on. I bet you fall for him too :)

Sarah said...

I hopped on the Vampire Diaries wagon late as well. My husband is an actor and has had a number of auditions for the show so we started watching it as "research" and ended up getting hooked. We plowed through all seasons on Netflix and are now extremely bitter because we're behind on the most recent season and HULU plus only has 6 random episodes available. BLAST!
