Friday Favorites Round-Up + A Giveaway

Did this week go by super slow to anyone else? I was one day ahead every morning and it really threw me off thinking Tuesday was Wednesday and so on, but the bright side, today is Friday!! So let's get right to sharing my favorites with Amanda and the crew! 

Favorite Songs - The Voice

Amazing cover of Make It Rain
And then he came out and did this...I mean he needs to win! 

Favorite Workout

Monday night I attended my first Flywheel Sports class. To sum it up in a few words - most intense workout ever!! I consider myself to be rather fit, but I was pretty much proved wrong after just 10 minutes into the class!! It was amazing, I sweat more than ever and I can't wait to try another class. Since classes are rather expensive I'm going to be checking out a Velocity because they also offer a free first class and a three class pass for $25. So in short - LOVED it and will be doing it again! 

Favorite Holiday Drink

How absolutely delicious does this Winter Apple Pear + Cranberry Sangria sound?! I have a new found appreciation for cranberries after making fresh sauce for Thanksgiving and now want to use them all the time! 

Favorite Look

Head to toe - love this look from Cameron Diaz!! It's something that I think anyone could wear and I'm really loving the nude heels! 

Favorite Links

+ This breathtaking French Chateau wedding in Provence
+Nail Pro tips that you may not know
+Lauren Conrad shared a sneak peak of her new collection with Khols and I'm loving those marled leggings! 
+You have to read this email exchange between the owner of a Chinese restaurant and really awful Harvard professor 

Bonus!!

  13. Cameron Diaz's outfit is amazing!! Love everything about it. And I just may need to recreate that sangria! Happy weekend to you xoxox

  14. That sangria looks soo good! We need a sangria recipe for my mom's birthday on Sat, so I might go with this one! I am obsessed with Cameron's outfit. That is so my style and you're right it is so wearable. Lauren's line looks awesome judging from that pic! I haven't checked it out yet though! Have a great weekend! xo

  15. Love Cameron! Love that it's super simple yet she looks so fab! Omg I need to try that sangria asap!! Yum!

  16. So much goodness in this post! Glad to hear you enjoyed your cycling class - I'm dying to find somewhere around here where I can try one out. Cameron Diaz's look is perfect for this time of year, and you're right - anybody could easily pull together that look with pieces they already own. I was in Kohl's yesterday and checked out those leggings - they are super thick and actually have a gray lining on the inside! They weren't on sale enough for me to pull the trigger, but I'm sure I will soon enough. :) Have a great weekend, love! xo

  17. Aww I love Zelle! Loving that Cameron Diaz look too!

  20. That sangria looks delicious!! Thanks for hosting such a fun giveaway. :)

  21. Omg yes to spin and sweating your ass off - literally. You'll notice it gets a little easier to stay standing up after you've done it consistently for a month or so. Glad you like it! Great giveaway too. Have a great weekend lady!

  22. So need to try that Sangria!! I read that email exchange between the restaurant and the Harvard Professor. Terrible!! Typical Harvard Lawyer who likes to bully the little guy.
    Have a fab weekend!!

  25. hi! long time no chat (my fault!) ! question about the cycling class. is that picture actually from the workout place you go to? whats with all the sneakers on the bottom? are they special ones for cycling? and then that prompts my NEXT question, are they shared, like you share bowling shoes?!?!?!? that sangria looks really good and i have a christmas cookie exchange coming up this week that i'm hosting that would be perfect for! and you are not the only one thinking its a long week. i swear, every morning this week walking into my closet picking out clothes for work was not only torturous but felt like i was in a repeat as if i was in groundhog day movie!

  26. I entered that giveaway so that I can get a pair of sandals haha. The TB perfume is fab too by the way. I have not done a cardio class in forever, but I totally understand the feeling that you had. I have felt that way too!! I'm glad that it was fun though. That drink sounds delicious, love Cameron's outfit, and I'll be checking out LC's new line. Love LC!! I hope that you are having a good day so far and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend lady!!! :-)

  27. Now that you mention it, it has kind of been a slow week. But can we talk about that Cameron Diaz look for a second? It's too perfect and so simple. We need to work on replicating that. And we'll for sure we taking one of those yummy holiday sangrias please :)

    And that sangria; yummy!
    Have a great weekend lady!

  38. Good for you for doing the flywheel class! I haven't tried it, mainly because I already sweat way more than the average person and I'm not sure there are enough towels in the world to save me in a spin class! That sangria looks YUM!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Good job on making it through the class. Its always good to switch up & learn something new. Your body gets more benefits of all the different styles.

  47. that class sounds intense! I also love the outfit Cameron D. is wearing, but I live in fear of wearing nude because it matches my skin tone and I don't want people to think I am nakey.

    ReplyDelete
  48. great to hear about the workout, i think i looked and they don't have any in KY womp womp. the sangria looks delish! Cameron looks amazing and so classic.
    ugh that harvard guy... what a douche. i don't care he apologised, he's still a douche.

  54. Mmmmmm... that sangria looks/sounds heavenly! Glad you enjoyed that flywheel class! I always love LC's line of clothing at Kohls. She's got some great pieces! Bad news for the pocket book... but the plus side at Kohls is using the 30% coupons!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Oh man that sangria does sound amaaaazing! Anything with apple pretty much has me sold, but that whole flavor combo.. just yes. And yay that you loved Flywheel so much! I really do need to get myself to a spin class pronto. I know it's going to be way more intense than I can prepare for but I gotta stop putting it off. Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I feel the exact same way! This was a long week, but I was so happy that it felt that way. This year has flown by so fast, and I am grateful for a slow moving week. Have a great weekend!

  57. Okay, to be honest I didn't read past the first "favorite" because I am so excited to talk about Matt McAndrew...I am ob.sessed! His performance this week was absolutely amazing and still my favorite is the Take Me To Church song he did. This is my first year watching The Voice and if he doesn't win I'm never watching again (told you, obsessed). Annnnyways...Hope you have a good weekend :)
