Friday Favorites Round-Up

Happy Friday everyone!!! I want to thank you all so much for your well wishes on our launch event!! Everything was beyond perfect and it was even more than we had hoped. It just so happened that my parents were going to be here for Mother's Day and obviously having the event while they were in town was the best coincidence! This has been quite the week around here because you'll also notice that this little space got a little face-lift!! I hope you like it! I'm linking up with Amanda and April to share even more favorites from the week! 

Favorite Recipe

So I don't have a waffle iron, but after finding these Zucchini Parmesan waffles I really need to get one!! How amazing do these look?

Favorite DIY 


Even though I don't plan on hosting a party for a while, this Citrus Centerpiece is pretty genius!  

Favorite YouTube Tutorial


If you're new to self tanning like me, then you probably are afraid of turning orange!! Well Jaclyn Hill posted an awesome self tanning how-to video and I've watched it like 10 times trying to make sure the next time I self tan at home - I perfect it!! 

Favorite Nails

I stumbled upon this instagram photo the other day and I just fell in love with the nails!! I have short ones and I just think the design is so fun!! 

Favorite Links

//I've always wanted to make my own catch-all and this seems like an easy one to try!

  23. I have not tried sunless tanning since my freshman year of college because I felt like after the use of one whole bottle my skin had not changed more than one shade! I need to try again with some higher quality stuff!
