Friday Favorites

Happy Friday friends!! A few people have asked how Jury Duty went and would you believe - I was actually chosen to serve on a jury that same day. Thankfully the trial was only a few hours long and we all came to a verdict unanimously. It was such a cool experience and I honestly felt because of my background I wouldn't get chosen, but wouldn't you know I was the only one they didn't have any questions for! Anyway...here's a look at some of my favorite things this week! 

Favorite Blogger Lunch

Carly from Carly Blogs Here was in Boston this week and she braved pretty much all of the elements while she explored this week! She met me for lunch on Thursday at one of my favorite lunch spots near work - Pasta Beach and it was so nice to get to meet her and chat about life!! Exactly how you would imagine her to be! 

Favorite Workout

We all know I'm a huge fan of the TIU workouts and this one is no exception. It's a high intensity boxing workout and let's just say I was huffing and puffing as if I don't do any cardio at all! Worth the 11 minutes and then follow it up with their burn it up video which is 13 minutes! 

Favorite Sale

Better Than Sex Mascara // Too Faced Bronzer // Clinique Lash Primer 

Seems like the first few weeks of April every store is clamoring to get our business...well Sephora is no exception since starting today VIB members get 15% off their purchases! I'm using this as a chance to restock some of my favorites including Clinique's eye lash primer & Better than Sex Mascara - the two together give me the look of false lashes! I'm almost out of my current bronzer (sharing all my favorite makeup items in a post next week) and picking this favorite from the past back up! 

Favorite Trench Coat


Having dealt with rain for the last few days, I've realized how much I need a classic trench - but with a twist!! I am in love with blush and really think the color will be classic enough to stay current for years to come. I've got my eyes on this hooded one from Guess - currently on sale! 

Favorite Links

//Just a few pretty block heeled sandals 
//Google life hacks you're probably not using, but will save you time
//Are sushi burgers something you could get behind? You know I'd say YES!! 

Hope you all have an amazing weekend!! See you back here Monday for Weekending!

  1. So glad your lunch with Carly went so well! It's always so nice when you meet for the first time in real life and it's like you've been friends forever! I'm headed to Sephora tomorrow to get a couple of things, so I hope the sale is still going on...I must have deleted that email without reading it! Happy Friday!

  3. That's so awesome you had a great jury duty experience! The trench is awesome - I love that it actually has a hood on it, too. We've been having some rain lately and that would be absolutely perfect to have! I need to remember Tone It Up work outs - perfect when I don't want to head to the gym!

  19. Congrats on being selected for a jury - its like my DREAM. As a law student (actually, lawyer in 32 days- eeeek), I will probably never be selected. But I am taking a class on how to select juries right now! Have a great weekend - x0x0, Hannah

  20. I'm glad that jury duty went well for you and that it was quick!! :-) I love that trench and I think that one would be so cute on you! I have been wearing mine like crazy because of the weather here and it is a lifesaver. So fun that you had a blogger lunch date too. I am going to try that mascara with that primer sometime and see how it is. I just bought my second tube of the NARS mascara though so it will be a while until my next one haha. Have a great day today and a fab weekend!! :-)

  34. How cool that you actually got chosen, I am so intrigued by all of that, that I would have loved it. LOL! I actually thought about becoming a criminal scene investigator...but then I thought I wouldn't be able to deal with all of the craziness! I have a couple of Sephora gift cards that are burning a whole in my pocket..can't wait to use them!
    Hope you have a great weekend! Checking out Carly's blog now! Glad y'all had a great meet-up!

Isn't it great when you're able to meet those you feel like you know for so long online in person?! I know lunch was awesome because you're my go-to foodie!

  66. My sister was selected to be on a jury, and she talked about how interesting it was too. Thankfully yours was only a day, right? Hooray for blates! There's just something so awesome about meeting somebody in person for the first time that you already feel like you know. It's the most wonderful time of the year, the Sephora sale! I can't wait to hear about your other makeup favorites, I've gotten a few of your suggestions and loved them!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I need that trench coat in my life. I only have fleeces, or winter coats. I need a good "light" jacket! So stinkin cute! Isn't meeting other bloggers the best? I'm glad you two got to meet up! :)

  70. That pink trench is adorable!! I have a link open to click over and look at it in a minute! I bought a nearly identical trench (except in a nude color) about four years ago, and I still wear it constantly. I love outerwear that's classic and lasts for years!

    ReplyDelete

  72. That boxing workout is exhausting just looking at it. I am probably in a yoga mood right now, but looks good for a good sweat. I definitely need to use my Sephora coupon soon! I also love the Better Than Sex Mascara and could always restock on my NARS foundation.

  78. Yeaaay to blogger meet-ups, block heels and of course sushi burgers - I am behind them, too. I always wanted to be part of a jury as a member, if they ever call me. My dad has been called like three times and my mom once.
