Friday Favorites

Happy Friday friends! I haven't shared a favorites post in a while and there has been a lot of fun this week so let's get right to it! 


Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

My skin has never been prone to breakouts, but it seems that turning 30 may have changed that! My sister recommended this drying lotion and it's amazing! I use a q-tip applying it to the "area" and it dries it overnight. It does tingle after application, but it works! 

Endurance Pilates and Yoga


On Monday I was invited to Endurance Pilates and Yoga to take a private pilates session with Christie who is a principal pilates instructor at the studio. For 55 minutes Christie took me through what a personal pilates session is like. I've taken a few pilates classes on reformer's before, but I've never had an instructor really work through each movement with me. The session was true to the pilates method, which is not usually the case with other classes I've taken - turns out I've been doing the hundred's all wrong! I jokingly asked Christie if she thought the pilates class or the birth of a child would be harder! If you've ever wondered how the Victoria Secret models get in shape before a shoot - aside from amazing genetics, it's the Endurance Method and the bridal packages make me wish I was still planning my wedding, but I'll just have to share it with all my brides! I judge a workout based on how sore I am the next day - the verdict, I'm happy I worked from home on Tuesday because I was incredibly sore and could barely lift my arms!

Bespoke Boston Weddings New Website

For the last few months, Jackie & I have been working with a designer on revamping our company website and it went live on Monday! We wanted our site to be crisp, clean & inviting for couples and hopefully it is just that! We are excited to continue to expand the site with a blog & showcase our portfolio of past weddings as well! 

Harry's Razors 



When I told Gary that he had blogger mail, you would have thought I told him we just won the lottery, it's the little things friends! The folks at Harry's sent me two of their Truman Set's - one for me & one for Gary! As much as I liked the razors, Gary really liked them! In his words: you get a nice close shave & the balm doesn't leave you with irritation! Funny enough, my dad was here when we opened the boxes & it turns out he uses the razors & loves them too! I prefer men's razors over women's any day & the quality is certainly there with Harry's!

The Last Tycoon 

If you have Amazon Prime then I cannot recommend The Last Tycoon enough! I first watched the pilot episode last year before the other episodes were released and knew it was going to be a show that I was going to love! I'm a huge fan of Matt Bomer from White Collar Crime & Lily Collins is just flawless as a the daughter of a head of a hollywood studio! Based on the unfinished novel by F. Scott Fitgerald - this is everything amazing about old Hollywood with the issues of the 1930's playing center stage in both character development and theme! The final episode of the season was ahhhh...I am ready for season two! If you liked the Great Gatsby & the era of old hollywood - then I'm sure you'll like this! 


Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We have some really fun things planned so I hope you'll follow along on Instagram and I'll see you back here Monday for Weekending!

  1. I just love everything Mario Badescu, and I have bought my husband two of the Harry's kits from J. Crew and he has really liked them too! And I need a new show to watch, so I am happy you recommended one :) Have a great weekend!

  3. Love your new website! It definitely has an inviting clean feeling to it. I would want to check out an Endurance pilates class, I've only ever done a basic reformer class. It sounds like it would make you sore the next day. Have a great weekend girl!

  10. Ha, I blogged about Mario Badescu today, too! I am loving that brand lately. And I watched the first episode of "The Last Tycoon" and I'm still on the fence about it -- does it pick up just a bit? Brandon was a bit "meh" about it but I love things set in that era and so I really want to get into it!

  21. I will have to check out The Last Tycoon. You didn't steer me wrong with your other recommendations. We love Ballers! BeSpoke site is blocked from my work computer, so I will have to check it out at home! I really love AntiBac from Kate Somerville for breakouts. It is the ONLY thing that has ever worked for me. The bottle is a little pricey, but it lasts me a good 6-8 months using it daily. Hope you have a great weekend!

  30. I cannot wait to get back to Pilates, it's seriously one of the best workouts and really can change your entire body like no other. The website looks so great!! And that drying lotion is SO good. I tried a bunch of his other products after that, and they are all pretty excellent. Have a fab weekend girl! XO

  31. Everyone seems to love that drying lotion, but it does nothing on my breakouts. I either have bionic zits or got a bad batch? LOL!

  32. That is what I need - an instructor to really work through each movement with me. I always feel like I am doing it wrong which makes me end up quitting.
