Friday Favorites

It's the first Friday of the new year and this weekend is starting out with a wedding!! We're coordinating a fun winter wedding at the Four Season's hotel & I'm pretty excited for this winter white wedding - literally since it's going to be snowing! Here's a few of my favorite finds from the week! 

Ankle Booties ||


During Nordstrom's sale last weekend I scooped up these ankle booties. I'm always a little weary of ankle booties because I'm afraid it'll rub my ankle the wrong way, but these are crazy comfortable! I've worn them to work (12+ hour day) & to an event on Monday night - they are winners!! Bonus is that they are still 40% off! Hoping to get a photo of them this weekend! 

Alice's Table Flower Arranging ||


Monday night, Tess from Sequins are the New Black & I attended Alice's Table flower arranging class. I've wanted to attend one of their classes for a while to learn the tips & tricks to not only flower arranging, but actually keeping these blooms alive!! My favorite tips of the night: 1. create a hashtag # with tape on top of the vase - this lets you play around with how the flowers will be arranged in the vase. 2. if you're using roses, take the "guard petals" off - these are the outer ones that are going to be a bit bruised from transport & then lightly blow to "fluff" the petals out! It was a super fun couple of hours & if you're ever in need of a different girl's night check them out - they're expanding across the country!  

Tuna Creations ||

So this one is a little weird to have as a favorite, but I went grocery shopping and wanted to add something with a little protein to my salad & saw these Starkist tuna creations. There are 10 different flavors to try and so far I've had the hot buffalo style & the lemon dill style - really tasty! If you like tuna then you should absolutely try this! I didn't even think to put it into a wrap with lettuce - next time for sure! #notsponsored 😜

Reading around the web ||

|| Love this post on how successful women tackle Monday's 
|| This outfit from Suburban Faux Pas has me realizing I need a pair of really great faux leather leggings
|| This week the first "smart" hairbrush was released - that's a thing now
|| If you're watching the bachelor here's why it matters more than ever - said in my Chris Harrison voice!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! See you Monday for weekending!

  1. A flower arranging class sounds like a fun idea!!! The wedding will be gorgeous especially with a snowfall as I imagine that is what the bride us going for with a winter wedding. Gimmie all the Tuna, eating a lot of it lately, lol. Have a ball this weekend gorgeous!

  2. Those ankle booties are super cute!!! Love your flower tip. My mom has a ton of antique frogs (basically metal versions on what you did with the tape), but I never thought to use tape. So clever! Tuna sounds like an easy way to add protein with zero prep! Hope the wedding is a success this weekend!

  8. How perfect that the winter wedding will have snow! I'm sure the pictures will be beautiful. Super interesting read about The Bachelor. I am guilty of watching each season and it really is true -- the show deserves some respect coming back for 21 seasons. Although, it does still feel like a guilty pleasure :) Good luck with the wedding and have a fabulous weekend!

  36. A smart hairbrush? Oh my... gotta check that out.
    I'm on the hunt for some cute ankle boots. Something I dont have in my closet. Actually I do have some from 10 years ago & thought, the style came back, but they have square toes & I'm not digging that with jeans.
