Favorite Things Friday: Summer Lovin’

Summer is right around the corner – can you believe it? The warm weather and sunshine are upon us and our wedding is 36 days away! In honor of the fast approaching change of season I wanted to do a little post sharing with you a few of my favorite spring/summer must-have’s! Enjoy!

***********************************

I am currently loving the Michele Tahitian Jelly Bean in white. I love the white color for summer – and the jelly strap makes it extra fun!I am a Michele watch lover so this is a must have for me!

Everyone needs a rockin’ black bag. This Michael Kors Gansevoort tote in black is amazing. I am loving this classic black bag with gold hardware! It is a great size and will hold lots of goodies – I also appreciate the two different strap options, sometimes I want to wear it on my arm, other times on my back!

Kristin Cavallari (one of my favorite bad girls from the Hills) has this bag in white! Swoooooon! Seriously, this bag is hot!

I love the Essie Chinchilly nail polish for the winter-spring season transition. I wore this color to my Philadelphia Bridal Shower and it was a hit! The light grey color makes me happy.

Next up is this amazing white paisley bathing suit from Victoria’s Secret. I purchased this bad boy for our amazing upcoming honeymoon – my goal is to look as hot (or hotter!) as the VS model – did I mention Operation Hot Bride is in full force!?

And another Friday Favorite is The Long Run by Matt Long – I just picked up this book because I heard such amazing things about it, I can’t wait to read it myself – I will keep you posted on how it is!

What are some of your favorite things that get you excited for the summer sunshine and warm weather?

Favorite Things Friday: Nude Nails

This week’s favorite things Friday revolves around one of my all time favorite things – Nude Nails! I am a little obsessed with nail polish. I enjoy painting my nails all sorts of different fun colors, but I love the nude look best!

Since I am in the “All Things Wedding” mode, its no wonder that I have given lots of thought to my nail color for the big day.

Today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite nude polish colors. Here are my top 5 of the moment – please enjoy!

#5 is by SpaRitual in Airhead.

It’s a lighter bubble gum pink – I got it in my BeautyFix bag.

#4 Is L’Oreal’s Blush it Off.

 DSC_3505

This bad boy is a little chalkier, but I really like it.

#2 & 3 are my two Essie favorites – Mademoiselle & Fiji.

DSC_3504

I love them both but Fiji is my favorite of the two, its more of a milky pink and when put on correctly, it looks fabulous on fingers and toes!

And my #1 favorite nude polish of the moment is Mimosas for the Mr. & Mrs!

 DSC_3508

Very appropriate name for the Big Day, wouldn’t you agree? I learned about this amazing color from reading my favorite pre-wedding book.  I ordered it online right after reading about it and have been obsessed ever since.

Favorite Things Friday

Favorite Things Fridayyyyyy time! My work schedule (and what I am doing for for my job) has completely changed for the better so I am currently operating at a little different schedule than normal. Lots of exciting things going on in my little world – can’t wait to fill you in on more!

But first things first – my favorite’s for the week!

I am loving my new notebook for work. I picked it up from Target- I love all the colors, it’s so festive and it makes me happy!

DSC_3231

It’s from the French Bulldog line by Jackie Shapiro.

Next up is a little random, but I had to share. I recently picked up the Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel and wand. I know some friends who have used it and had good experiences.

DSC_3247

In Philly, our water is super hard so that leaves our toilet with gross rings around it all the time, no matter how much I clean it, they are always there! I have been using this gel for the past 2 weeks and it has been amazing!

DSC_3248

You stick the gel that comes out of the wand in the toilet by the top and the gel works with each flush to keep the toilet bowl super clean. No more toilet rings in our apartment!

Might be a little random and off topic, but this thing totally works and it definitely earned a space as one of my favorite things for the week!

My latest hair care obsession is from the Wen line of hair care.  It is a  5-in-1 formula, that takes the place of your shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler and leave-in conditioner.

DSC_3234

It cleanses your hair without lathering and it doesn’t strip your hair and scalp of its natural oils. It feels like a lotion that you put on your hair. I am a serious lover of conditioners, I can’t get out of the shower without conditioning, but this bad boy really does work fabulously as a conditioner too!

DSC_3236

Did I mention the scents are amazing? I have Pomegranate and Sweet Almond Mint. I sort of want to lick the bottles because they smell that good.

Happy hair makes me happy!

The newest book on my bookshelf this week is Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet: A Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight and Saving the Planet.

DSC_3239

I ordered this book because I  was very interested in Alicia’s vegetarian options, I had heard great things about them!

DSC_3241

Everything in the book looks very yummy!

DSC_3242DSC_3244

And who doesn’t love Alicia Silverstone? She rocked it out in Clueless!

My last favorite thing for the week is my flower headband. I wore it all weekend in Vermont a few weeks ago and am obsessed. It has been the perfect weather for it too!

2011-02-13_13-11-38_55

I own it in cream and grey. What a fabulous purchase from a mall kiosk!

This week I have a BONUS Favorite Things Friday for you! I usually share 5 things on Friday so consider this a little extra! 🙂

I was recently introduced to a pretty awesome online site – Ebates! Ebates is the pioneer and leader of online Cash Back Shopping. All you do is sign up (for free) and then shop online – Ebates has over 1,200 stores and coupons online and you get a % cash back for your entire purchase at each store.

It sounds like a scam, but I can attest that you actually get money for shopping – they will send you a check or you can transfer the $ to your paypal account. It is a pretty sweet deal! I believe you get $5 just for signing up too!

Are you an Ebates user?

Favorite Things Friday

Heyooooo! It’s Fridayyyy! Time for another round of my Favorite Things Friday!

DSC_3049

Let’s start off with a new favorite blogger book – The Pioneer Woman – Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. I love supporting fellow bloggers and checking out their latest accomplishments.

The Pioneer Woman’s cookbook is awesome and her newest book looks like another great read! Can’t wait to sink my teeth into it! Besides, who doesn’t enjoy a good love story??

 DSC_3050

I have a new addition to add to my gloss guide! I was recently introduced to this little gem from my girl Lisa and am so happy I tried it out for myself!

DSC_3056

The Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss is a must have!

DSC_3058

Pink Pursuit is my color of choice but for $5 a pop I will be picking up many more! It glides on so soft and feels great on my lips!

It is lip gloss love at its finest!

DSC_3062

Another little sneak peak into my life – I sleep with an eye mask on! Any other eye mask wearers out there? I feel that it allows me to sleep better so I wear one every night.

DSC_3065

I was introduced to this amazing brand of eye mask by Kath and it is pure amazing-ness! It is an ultra light molded foam eye mask which is contoured for pressure-free, smudge-free eye comfort.

 DSC_3064

If it’s wrong to love an eye mask, I don’t want to be right!

 DSC_3066

And it’s pretty too! I love the Dahlias design!

Next up on my favorite things for the week are some new pants!

DSC_3054

My lovely friends at Violet Love hooked me up with some of their new loungewear collection!

DSC_3083DSC_3087

The last time I tried out some Violet Love products was when I feel in love with their amazing line of headbands. My experience with their loungewear collection was just as awesome!

 DSC_3094

I was sent the Hermosa lounge pants to test out and I was immediately digging all the fun colors in the print. I love soft and stretchy fabric. It feels fabulous and is fun to wear – I love them for laying around on a lazy weekend and they are also fun to wear to yoga too!

DSC_3099

And my final favorite for the week is just the fact that I miss my little Jackson! He has been with my parents since last week when I dropped him off in VA before our big ski trip last weekend! It has been a whole week and a half without him! Fiancé and I are going nuts at home without Jackson here – our lives are pretty much incomplete! There are potential plans to go pick him up tomorrow so hopefully that works out.

What are some of your favorite things for the week? Do you have any fun weekend plans?
