Friday Favorites Round Up

Happy Friday friends! Another weekend is upon us and I'm so excited to be heading to see my cousin get married this weekend!! It's going to be a full out Russian wedding and if you've ever seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding then I've already paining a picture for you! Let's get right to some favorites with Amanda and April

Favorite Recipe 

Baked Parmesan Zucchini crisps - with ranch dipping sauce! Do I have your attention now?! I can't wait to try these as a side or even as a snack during a football game - instead of the chips! 

Favorite New Store

Primark, an Irish retailer, opened it's flagship store in Boston a few weeks ago and I finally had the chance to explore - it's over 70,000 square feet, so it took some time to get through. If you've never heard of Primark (which I hadn't until it was slated to open here) it's like H&M meets Target. The prices are crazy cheap! They sell everything from baby clothes to housewares to makeup! I see myself popping in for more trendier pieces that I don't want to spend as much money on! 

Favorite Nail Polish

It's no secret around these parts that I love to paint my nails, but I hate that they chip so quickly! I've gotten the OPI weekly polish and CND at the salon before, but finally invested in my own top coat and color and I'm obsessed! I basically get a manicure on Sunday and bring my own polish and top coat in and then should anything chip (because I'm really hard on my nails) I can touch it up. It lasts up to 10 days for me (with one or two touch-ups) and it's not even gel - this is seriously unheard of! I'm currently using cake pop and have my eye on Rock Royalty & Asphalt

Favorite Find

I first saw these marble wall mounted shelves in a nursery reveal and after reading the reviews it's been used in just about every room of a house you can think of. From what I've read they are incredibly sturdy and the marble is great quality! If you remeber I wanted to do this DIY next to my dresser, but there wasn't enough room - now this one will definitely fit!

  6. How crazy is Primark! I go every time I'm in London and it's a mad house! They do have some great trendy pieces and incredible prices as you mentioned. I got a an Ugg-inspired pair of shoes for wearing around the house for 6 pounds. So crazy!

  7. I've seen those zucchini crisps before so I need to double check I pinned them, they sound delicious! I'll have to see if they're putting any other stores in the states, near me or what their online presence looks like, lol. Have a blast at the wedding this weekend!

  8. I totally saw those nail polishes the other day and thought about picking one up but I didn't. Looks like I need to go back! And 70,000 sq feet?! What?! I would live in that store! Have an amazing time at the wedding!

  15. Kitchen shelves would be great idea for saving space in your kitchen! I'm pretty sure that everyone's kitchen could use a little horizontal space, right??

    Can't WAIT to see the wedding pics! I'm off to a wedding this weekend, too :) Have a great one, Bianna!

  24. Have a wonderful time at the wedding. Girl, I LOVE Primark. I have already been three times since it opened. I cannot get enough of it. I think it's gonna be dangerous for my wallet. I love your snaps, they always make me smile. You have a really nice speaking voice.

  25. Those Zucchini Crisps look amazing, and so much healthier than other appetizers that I usually stuff my face with before a game. I can't wait to try those. Have fun at the wedding Biana!

  26. I love Vinylux polish and yeah if you do 2 coats of the topcoat, it will last for 10 days. Or if you do 3 coats of the color, and 1 of the top coat it will last that long too. Just some other secrets if you're interested! ;-) That recipe sounds delicious and perfect for a party. That store looks so cool too!! I hope that you have a fabulous weekend and a great time that your cousin's wedding! :-)

  33. Jealous you got to go to Primark!! I hear about it all the time because I seem to follow a lot of YouTubers who live overseas. They have super cute stuff, I want to check it out sometime!!! Add that to my list of reasons to head to Boston haha.

  35. Have fun this weekend at that huge party/ wedding. (; I can't wait to see your DIY come to life. If you don't own one of the CND sparkle topcoats, I highly suggest them! My favorite is called Sapphire Sparkle. They are pretty hard to find, but if you know any local beauticians, they'd be able to steer you in the right direction. The Sapphire Sparkle changes any polish you put it over!

  37. I have never heard of that store but 70,000 sq ft?! Holy cow! I would have to spend a few days going through it, haha! Those cinnamon rolls look amazing. I've been wanting cinnamon rolls for some reason. Maybe this will be my weekend.
