Friday Roundup

Happy Friday friends! This week has felt extra long for some reason, but it's officially Fall - the temps are dropping and I'm ready to bust out my new boots! We are headed to a wedding this weekend - the start of 3 in a row for me! My last roundup was exactly a month ago, so it's been a long time - all of that changing today!! Here are a few of my favorite things from the week!
 

Apple Music ||

Tove Lo - Cool Girl || Esra Istrefi -Bonbon || Maty Noyes - In My Mind
I'm not sure why I resisted Apple Music (Radio) for the longest time, but I was tired of Pandora & the same old songs on my phone. After the new iOS update I noticed they offer a 3 month free trial (I think they have this regardless if you update your phone or not)- after that it goes to $9.99 / month - so I've been hooked every since!! Created my own "Pop" stations and found some new songs & artists I can't get enough of! 

This Is Us ||

Ever since seeing the promo for This Is Us a few weeks ago, I was intrigued. Then the show premiered on Tuesday night and I stayed up way too late watching it only to have the best twist at the end!! I literally said "No Way" - when the last few minutes aired! It's good...I'll be watching all season long! 

The Theory of Opposites ||

I've been on a reading spree over the last couple of weeks and wanted to give a quick take on The Theory of Opposites! This was such a fun read! You have a woman that's always done what was expected of her. Her dad is a self-help writer and believer of "what will be will be." So when Willa's husband proposes a 2 month break from their life, she decides to do the opposite of what her normal self would do! It was such an easy and lighthearted read - really liked it! 

Maybelline Dream Velvet


I picked up the dream velvet foundation on a whim when I was at Target. I wasn't planning on loving it, but I can't get over how smooth it makes my face feel. I know that not everyone likes the matte finish, but it gives you the airbrushed look without being cakey!

And that's a wrap! Hope you all have a great weekend!! See you back here Monday for Weekending!

  3. I keep hearing about how great This is Us was! I had seen commercials leading up to it, but staying up that late is a serious issue for me! I'm going to have to check On Demand, all these new falls shows are messing with my sleep schedule haha! Hope you have a great weekend, Biana!

  4. This Is Us was a fantastic show on Tuesday night! I did the same thing as you--I was laying on the couch and when I figured out the twist, I sat up and said "Nooo!!" haha! I couldn't believe it! I got my mom to watch the show too and now she's hooked! Happy Friday!

  33. I have This is Us on our list of things to catch up on this weekend along with all the shows that started back this week. The only new one we watched was Big Bang Theory on Monday night. The Theory of Opposites sounds like a good read, I think I will add it to my TBR, thanks for sharing! I dreamed the Dream Liquid Mouse a few months ago and while I liked how it looked...it just wouldn't last on my skin. Perhaps the matte would do better. I did like that I found a color to match me. And the price...haha! Have a great weekend!

  34. Happy Friday & happy fall! I can't wait to do fall activities this weekend..apple picking!! That proposal and that link for the financial terms are awesome! Thanks for sharing <3 Have the best time at the wedding!

  36. Oh man This is Us was SOOOO good, hubby loved the twist at the end too!!! That book sounds interesting too, must look into that! Happy Friday girl!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Girl, I'm right there with you on This is Us!! B and I watched, too, and the end literally made my jaw drop. Then we ended up staying up even longer to discuss the entire thing to make sure that we had all of our details straight. Haha. So GOOD! It made me laugh and it made me cry and they did a great job of developing the characters and making me empathize with them... and all in the first episode! I think it's a keeper.

  38. This is Us was the best!! I love the way they tied it all together in the end! So cool! I loved Parenthood so I knew this show wouldn't disappoint!

  47. I mentioned This Is Us in my post today, and so did 7,303 other bloggers. Apparently it's going to be a major hit!! I'm just going on the record and saying the last five minutes of that show *might* be the best five minutes in TV in all of 2016! Perfection!!
    Have a great weekend!

  48. It sounds like everyone is loving that new TV show! I love Mandy Moore. I've been wondering what she's been up to! That book sounds interesting. What would you think or say if the same happened to you? Crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I think I will try that foundation. Do you add powder over it or just wear the foundation (I have seen people do either)?

  52. I'm usually SO good on picking up on twists in movies/tv/books, but I somehow did not see the one in This Is Us coming. I think it was just that well done! I read the Director said there's more twists in store and I for one, can't wait to see how they unfold.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Someone else was just telling me about This Is Us and kept saying about the big twist at the end, I was like stop it, don't ruin it for me haha:) Wishing you a lovely weekend.

  59. I'm getting caught up over here on your blog! I loved This Is Us--the promo made me cry too. I really enjoyed the pilot! And the twist!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I loved This Is Us!! SO good! I'm glad to see that lots of people feel the same way...hopefully that means it won't be canceled! I feel like the last few shows I've liked have gotten canceled and that's always such a bummer!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Sometimes Pandora is so good, and sometimes it's so bad and I don't understand how that can be, haha. My husband has apple music and I'm always jealous because it's so nice to have basically whatever song/artist you want at your fingertips all the time. I think there's some way we can share his account, but we've never been able to figure it out. The twist at the end of This is Us was so clever!

  62. When that fireman lit up a cigarette in the hospital I was like wait...what?? OMG..the twist...I can't wait to watch tonight!!

  63. I ugly cried my way through This is Us and I guarantee it's going to be a long haul show. I just fell so in love with all the characters! <3 Dream velvet, ey? I feel like that's been out forever! Always great to find hidden drugstore gems. (:
