Weekending Scenes

Happy Monday all!! Today is going to be a lazy Monday with a few errands being run and really just continuing the weekend!! The weekend almost started on Thursday night for me and attending the grand opening of Waterford Crystal's first US store. 
It was beautiful event and of course I fell in love with a vanity and mirror!
After catching a gorgeous sunset on Friday, just as I had predicted, I finished the first season of Jane the Virgin and just in time since the second season starts tonight! I have a theory - binge watching shows is way better than having to wait each week for a new episode. 
It's starting to become a habit with our apartment building loosing heat at least one day out of the weekend and when your heat and hot water aren't working you do what you have to do to take a shower and in our case that was going to the gym! At least that meant I got two workouts in this weekend, which almost never happens!! 
Saturday night my friend Jackie had a few girls over for a girl's night and I seriously forget how much  laughing with your girlfriends and new friends is good for the soul! 
Thanks to a handy timer stands we were able to get a group shot once the boys had already left!! 
Our grand plans of seeing American Sniper on Sunday were foiled when every single showing up until 10:00 PM was sold out!! We consoled ourselves with brunch (crab & hash) and shopping!! 
I'm the sort of person that has a gift card and needs to use it - so I did just that!! I can't wait to dig into this Chelsea Market cookbook from Anthropologie (also on Amazon). I thought Gary's eyes were going to pop out when I picked up another eye shadow palette, but in my defense I'm 100% done with the Naked 1 Palette so a new one was sort of okay! I've heard amazing things about the Too Faced semi-sweet chocolate bar and since I love the original so much I decided to round the collection out! The Limited was having 50% off everything so this cute nautical top came home with me!! 
Meet my new best friend - the Nova Flash!! I picked up this to help with photos since I didn't want to invest in a full on lighting set-up!! This little guy has 4 different flash settings and a custom one you can create!! It "talks" to your iPhone wirelessly (bluetooth) and takes really clear pictures!! I busted this out for girls night and may have gotten some weird looks, but after they saw the picture they were fans!! 
Sunday night wrapped up with watching the Patriots dominate the Colts and ending with the Pats going to the Super Bowl!!
Hope you all have a wonderful start to your week!! If you want to share your weekends with me and Meghan - link up below!!

  3. So jealous you're off today! Sounds like you've had an amazing weekend so far. I don't know where you took that sunset picture from but I'm pretty sure I'd live there for that view! And I'm going to have to check out that flash now... so cool! Happy Monday doll!

  4. I have to work today! But I have Fri off b/c I'm going to Garth the night before. I tried on that shirt at The Limited on Sat. Didn't buy it b/c I was being good and had already bought something at another store!!

  5. I adore Waterford, we received some amazing pieces for our wedding! I can't wait to add to them.

    Yay, girls night! SO much fun!

    I can't believe the Super Bowl is so soon!!! Have a great day!

  6. Bummer that American Sniper was sold out.. we just finished literally 5 minutes ago, and it was fantastic. Although..... I think if given the choice I might take that eggs benedict.. it looks delicious!!

  7. All of your pics over the weekend looked so pretty so fun or so delicious! A good girls night can definitely do wonders for your soul that's for sure! Loving your new camera flash accessory! Can't wait to see all your amazing pics with it!

    Hope you enjoy the rest of your long weekend girl!!

  9. For the second weekend in a row I took crappy phone photos with low light. Looking into the Nova!!!

    Brunch looks fabulous as does girls' night.

    Hurrah for two workouts BOO to no heat.

  11. Your brunch looks amazing!!! And girls night looks so fun! I am hoping to have a girls night this Thursday, they are much needed!

    I really love that top you scored at The Limited. I haven't been to that store in forever. We only have one here and it is at the mall that is furthest away from me and least frequented. Perhaps I need to stop in soon. Hope you have a great week!

  12. My cousin and I tried to go see Sniper on Friday and Saturday night and both were sold out way in advance :( My parents said it was amazing though! Let me know how you like the cookbook. I love Chelsea Market!

  16. I need that Waterford vanity. It's amazing! It must be so much fun living in the city and getting to go to events like that! Looks like you had an awesome time with your girlfriends. Have a great week!

  17. Oh Lord! I love Waterford Crystal- the keyboard and the vanity and the glasses. All of it. May be easier to talk the Aunt-in-law into taking a trip to Boston with me!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. What a great weekend! And you're right - an evening at home with your girls is just heavenly sometimes. Enjoy your day off! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  19. It sounds like multiple people had trouble seeing American Sniper this weekend! We opted for Into the Woods instead, but I highly doubt there would've been any sold out showings in good ol' northern Wisconsin. :) That crystal vanity and mirror is simply gorgeous, and a girls night - how fun! Glad you had a good weekend - enjoy your day off!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Love a good girls night! I spend some gift cards this weekend too, such a satisfying feeling to buy yourself things you'd like to buy and not having to spend your own money!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Everyone keeps talking about Jane the Virgin I think I might have to check it out! And that brunch looks divine. I love brunch. I brunch like its a verb. So good!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Girls nights are the best! It sounds like we'll have to see America Sniper soon. The previews really do look awesome.
    And the Pats really did kick some Colt behind yesterday. They deserve to go to the Super Bowl. Enjoy your day off Biana!

  23. That vanity and mirror are like something out of a dream! Looks like a beautiful event. I totally agree about binge watching. We just binge watched season one of The Killing and I'm hooked. I've heard American Sniper has been selling out and is really busy everywhere. I'd love to see it, but will probably wait for it to quiet down a bit. That totally sucks about your heat! The worst thing we've ever had was frozen pipes for a couple of days last year. We had heat, but couldn't shower or wash dishes haha it wasn't pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Cheers to the long weekend! And I am with you... that vanity and mirror are beyond fabulous although I'm scared to know the price tag *sigh*. Let me know how you like that semi-chocolate palette, it looks amazing and oddly enough delish :)

    Hope your heat comes back soon and stays on! I hope the building is comping it's tenants in another way for the huge inconvenience.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Sounds like a really great weekend. Girl's night looked awesome, and oh, the mirror and vanity is incredibly beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  26. That brunch looks delicious!! We were going to see American Sniper on Saturday afternoon but didn't want to deal with the crowd. We are going to go Wednesday night (hoping it is not as crazy then haha)!

  27. What an amazing weekend! I'm going to have to check out that app! I totally agree with you about laughing with girlfriends being good for the soul. That's just what happened with me too and it was the best stress reliever ever! xo

  28. Can I spend every weekend with you?! That brunch seriously looks amazing! How cool is that flash?! I hope you have a great day off! So jealous!

  31. What a great weekend, girl! Except for the heat going out, again! Yuck! Thank heavens for the gym ;)
    I've never heard of the nova flash?! Definitely looking into that more!
    Also, so excited about the Patriots win! Okay, so I could probably care less... but I'm excited for Eric and all of Boston about the Pats win ;) I'm kind of bummed that the super bowl is the weekend we are moving... it would have been fun to surprise Eric with (ridiculously expensive) tickets to the superbowl since we will be living there!

    ReplyDelete
  32. How fun! My hubs keep our home on about ohhh say 50 so I feel your no heat pain! haha Looks like a fabulous weekend nonetheless and I'm loving the new flash thingy! Very cool! Enjoy today! xo

  33. that sounds crazy about the flash thing, but if t works, i'm all for it.you'll love the semisweet palette. i need a girls' weekend or night asap!

    ReplyDelete
  34. That's so frustrating that your building is losing heat on the weekends. At least you had somewhere to go to shower. That Waterford mirror is gorgeous and your crab and hash brunch looks amazing. I was so jealous when I saw it on instagram.

  35. Love your pictures from the Waterford store! Love their stuff. We have a few vases and our crystal is Waterford. We're probably the only couple in the last few years that registered for crystal!! :-) So sorry about your heat and water too!! Your girls night sounds so fun too!! I hope that you have a great day off today too!! :-)

  36. Binge watching shows is the best way to do it. Sounds like you had an awesome weekend!! Crab and hash? I never heard of that, but it sounds yum!!

  38. Your girls night sounds so fun! Laughing with your girl friends seriously is the best cure for anything! And that brunch looks so delicious!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Your heat and hot water go out every weekend?! That would drive me nuts! And I think I would be so scared of breaking all the beautiful things in the crystal store... But seriously so beautiful!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow! Great weekend! The girls night sounds like fun! I binge watch shows on Netflix too :-p I do love it but man, I waste a lot of time in front of the TV because of it. Haha. Oh and your brunch looks amazing - I got something similar for brunch on Sat after my 5k!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Awww, I need to have a girl's night! I know that timer trick, too, lol! That Nova Flash is a must have for selfies, it looks like. Oh, technology!

  42. I need to start watching Jane the Virgin to get me through cardio! A new show always keeps me on the treadmill or elliptical a little bit longer! And the food y'all eat each weekend always looks so amazing! Happy Monday, lady!

  44. Nights with friends are the best! I love the fancy set up y'all had too. I only saw the first half of the Pats game but when I looked at the score later I had to do a double take! Glad you had a good weekend & that it continues into today!

    ReplyDelete

  50. Totally agree about binge watching TV, I started The Killing this weekend on Netflix and watched 7 one hour episodes Saturday night, so much better watching them all at once! Is this Jane the Virgin show on Netflix??,

  52. I'm sorry the movie didn't work out... good thing Ryan & I bought our tix ahead of time! It's a wonder I didn't fall asleep during a 10pm movie. And could that sunset be any more beautiful?!? I have never heard of that flash but it looks pretty sweet- you should do a tutorial on pictures with the flash and without!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I agree!! After getting Netflix, it's so hard to watch regular TV shows and wait week to week lol Looks like a fun weekend!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. You are so lucky to be off today! I'm so jealous!! I'm all about binge watching shows, it seriously is the best. That eggs benedict thing you had looks sooo gooood!! nom nom

  55. I'd be scared to death to walk in a crystal store... I'm too clumpsy...
    I'm SO EXCITED about Jane being a new episode!!! isn't it the cutest?!?!?! I think I love to binge watch things myself. We record so many shows & then will do a catch up - I love not having to wait each week.

  68. Uhm I am so in love with that Nova flash! I'm going to have to do some digging on it and check it out, because while I have a DSLR it's not the most convenient thing to lug around and break out. Also I've been thinking about grabbing one of the Chocolate Bar palettes to round out and break out from Nakeds... Let me know how you like it!

  71. I was just talking about how I don't know what I'm going to do when Game of Thrones comes back, because I've never actually watched it live, I've always binged! Totally agree with you on that one. Girls nights are the best - and you certainly have a gorgeous group of girlfriends! :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Fun weekend! I totally agree with your binge watching theory by the way ;)

    ReplyDelete
  73. Oh gosh the heat and hot water going out is NO BUENO but yay for getting workouts in out of it!! I agree with you on the tv show thing--J just pointed out that I have an annoying number of episodes stock piled for all my current shows on our DVR because I basically don't watch network tv anymore. Whoops.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Wow. The heat and water going off would NOT fly well with me. I love that you turned it into a positive situation.

    Girls nights are the BEST! I have one coming up this weekend, and I can't wait.
