Friday Favorites – November 2016


Who else is super happy that today is Friday?!

Friday Favorites

Dior Makeup:

You know by now that I am obsessed with Dior makeup.  I went to the mall for new lululemon running tights the other day but see, I parked my car at the Bloomingdales entrance which means I made a stop at the Dior makeup counter and um, never made it to lululemon.


Dior Makeup

I needed a new Dior eye shadow palette, a new blush and a new black pencil liner. As Jill, my Dior makeup girl (that’s what I call her) at Bloomingdales always says, every girl needs a good black liner in her makeup collection.

Henri Bendel 2017 Planner:

It was a really scary decision to switch from my Erin Condren Life Planner but I fell in love with this 2017 Gown Girls Planner  from Henri Bendel and just had to get it.

I was immediately drawn in to this planner because of the girls on the cover! It makes me so happy to look at and I find it rather fitting for all of my wedding and event industry work that I do on a daily basis.

I still need a pen and paper to write things down, I cannot switch over to only using my google calendar and phone notepad. In fact, if there’s something in my google calendar, I write it down in my planner too.

I need a planner that is big enough to take notes but small enough to place in my bag when I go to meetings and things like that in the city. This planner has plenty of lined pages in the back and good space for each week. I am really excited to start writing in it!

Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes:

I wanted a chocolate fudge cupcake yesterday so I stopped at The Bakery. Crumbs is no longer open in my area which makes me sad because I loved their brownie cupcakes, especially with the chocolate fudge filling in the center.

This chocolate fudge cupcake was delicious even without a fudge filling  in the center although I think all cupcakes should come with filling in their centers!

    I get my makeup at target and just go for whatever is the cheapest! I do have some mac stuff that I got a long time ago as a gift.
    This weekend Rob wants to go to the mall to look for jeans. He hasn’t bought a new pair in about 7 years and we are both sort of dreading it. Other than that there isn’t much going on which is a good thing!

    I used to only wear Stila black liquid eyeliner and then I switched to Kat Von D’s black liquid eyeliner. The jury is still out which one I like better! We are going to a memorial service for my friend’s husband tomorrow. He passed away from cancer at only 40 years old, leaving behind his wife and 3 kiddos. Although his wish was that it not be a sad “party” it’s still going to be a very sobering weekend. I’m feeling so thankful for everyone around me, even my teenagers. :/
