Friday Favorites

Happy Friday friends - so happy to be back at it again with Amanda ,September Farm and April to share some favorites from the week. Let's get right to it! 

Favorite Book

I finished reading Eight Hundred Grapes this week and really enjoyed it! If I had to give it a rating I'd say a 4 out of 5 stars! It was really easy to read, but some of the chapters were kind of all over the place going back and forth in time! I was extremely happy with the ending, but of course like any good author she kept you in suspense until the end. I love wine, so learning about the process along with reading the story was so fun! 

Favorite Look

Krystin Lee once again nailed it with this gorgeous dress from Eliza J. I adore the thin gold belt that actually comes with the dress and it's just so fun for an Summer wedding or Summer event! 

Favorite Treat

Andy shared her fresh recipe for Zucchini Muffins and the addition of applesauce is such a different ingredient - I can't wait to try them! 

Favorite Tip

For anyone that has any favorite makeup products, but forgets what shade they get in their holy grail foundation or what their favorite mascara is called this is the best tip I've seen and honestly not sure why I didn't think to do this on my own!! You basically take pictures of what your favorite makeup items are called and when you go to the store, no more trying to remember your color or what you bought last time! 

Favorite Links

//In case you missed it I shared a few tips on faking false lashes
//Wallpaper gets a bad rap sometimes, check out these three ways to incorporate it into your home
//This beachy waves and crown tutorial makes me happy
// The new Giambattista Valli for MAC collection launched yesterday and the one color I wanted sold out immediately!! If you were lucky to nab the color "Bianca" let me know I'll buy it from you! :)

BONUS!! 

This picture of the sweetest face Prince George made at his sister's christening has literally made my week!! I call this my " I can't handle it" face! Cuteness overload!! 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and see you Monday for Weekending!

  3. That. Eliza. I. Dress. Oh my god I need it yesterday!! It's just so perfectly, effortlessly chic and fantastic. I use applesauce in a lot of my baking actually! Cuts down on the sugar and is a great replacement for an egg. I have found that if leads to smoother pastries as well! Happy Friday doll!

  5. That dress is SO pretty! Glad you liked the book that you read--I hadn't heard of that one before, but might add it to my list now! I'm reading a good one right now that I'm hoping stays good throughout (I need a good book after the last loser I read).
    Hope you have a great weekend girly!

Keep checking the site...when the HEA lipgloss sold out from Cinderella I was so disappointed and I checked back withing a few days there were more available online!! Good luck, I know exactly how you feel! That dress is gorgeous, and I would love to try those skinny muffins! Have a great weekend and happy Friday!

  20. That dress is gorgeous! It would look AMAZING on you with your hair and eyes - it would be stunning!! I have been following the christening pictures - did you see the one of William with an almost identical outfit when he was George's age??

    ReplyDelete
  21. Prince George!!! He is SO cute. That makeup app thing is awesome too. I can usually remember what makeup that I've bought, but it's definitely frustrating when you can't remember the shade or color. That pink maxi dress is SO gorgeous, so is that lipstick. Sorry that it sold out though!! I'm checking out that book too. I hope that you have a great Friday and a fabulous weekend lady!!! xo

  42. That dress is gorgeousssss! And those muffins sound delish! I LOVE finding recipes that use applesauce, you literally can't taste the difference (but use so much less oil, etc) That has me craving Fall as there's a pumpkin, carrot, zucchini muffin recipe I love that uses applesauce as well, yum!
    Dying over that last picture, way too cute!

  86. I don't know why I'm always afraid to try baking recipes that use applesauce for a substitute-- if you try those let me know! I actually have a bunch of zucchini in my fridge that I need to use soon. I agree with you on Eight Hundred Grapes! I really enjoyed it too, but it was a lot of back and forth between the chapters.
