Friday Favorites

Hello and Happy Friday friends! For a short week this sure did feel like a long one! I'm so looking forward to a warmer weekend and excited to spend some time outside! Also really looking forward to the AFC Championship game on Sunday - my home team the Jaguars are playing against my new home team the Patriots and I'm thinking it's going to be a really fun game! I wanted to share a few favorites from the week! 

Slow Cooker Meatballs 

I'm so guilty of pinning recipes then forgetting to make them, but last week I found this recipe and couldn't wait to try it! With the extra time on Monday, I made my first ever batch of meatballs from scratch and wouldn't you know, come dinner time G and I couldn't get enough of the food! We had enough for lunch the next day and all my co-workers were saying how delicious it smelled!! Such an easy recipe and I highly suggest trying it! 

Google Arts & Culture 


At this point you have probably been seeing all the snaps of people taking selfies and seeing what painting they most resemble. You can download the Google Arts & Culture app and snap a photo of yourself. I have to say Gary's doppelgänger made me cry with laughter - it was so good, but he wouldn't even let me save it!! 

Beret Trend 

I'm not quite sure if I can pull off the beret trend, but I'm willing to give it a try. I found some cute options on Amazon and for less than $15 I'm willing to give this a whirl! I'm still deciding between the wine red and the grey color!! Which do you like?

Velvet Matte Lip Stain 

I had a couple gift cards to Victoria Secret that I was itching to use up and while in the checkout line I noticed their Velvet Matte lip stain collection. I always gravitate towards pink-nudes and this one named "Adored" is so pretty. Some matte lipsticks can be very drying, but this formula keeps a nice light air to it when it dry's - basically your lips will not show cracks! It comes in a variety of different colors (10) and I was surprised to see that online you can get 2 for $18 when one is $14, so basically you're getting one for almost 75% off! 


Hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead!

  1. Good luck to the Jaguars! There is a part of me that wants to see a Patriots/Vikings Superbowl but only because my friend is a really big Patriots fan & is throwing a party. I don't REALLY want to play the Patriots or have them go to another Superbowl haha.

  4. We'll be watching the football game this weekend, too! And I'm the same with recipes I pin--I have to make myself go back and check my boards so I can remember recipes I want to try! Otherwise I pin too much ha!

  11. I haven’t heard of that app! Girl, your introducing me to so many apps this week, lol. Btw, it did feel like a never ending week for me, too. Anyway, I need to try it and see what painting I resemble. You actually do resemble that one a lot! As for the beret, I think you can really pull it off. I actually love the grey one most. I have one that I want to wear that’s an off white color. I’ll have to try my hand at those meatballs, they’d be perfect for a Sunday dinner! Thanks for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you have a great weekend (enjoy the game!).

    Xo,

  15. Your IG story with the Google Arts & Culture painting was the first I'd seen and it led to some great fun and laughter in my home, so thank you for that! It was too funny to see the results! My youngest daughter was matched with a painting of an older lady who we're pretty sure is a perfect prediction of what she'll look like in another 50 years! Ha! :) Hope you enjoy every beautiful bit of your upcoming weekend, from warmer temps to cheering on your team!

  17. Yum, those meatballs look so good!! I keep wanting to do the painting thing but I keep forgetting. And I have to agree, for a short week it was LONG!

  18. Slowcooker meatballs are the best! I did an appetizer version when we hosted supper club a few weeks ago and they were a hit! Hope you have a wonderful weekend girl!

  22. I'm dying over all of the look alikes from history, they're so funny! And you can totally pull off a beret!!

  23. I think you would look totally cute in a beret. Love the one you have pictured there. It has been a long while since I have shopped in VS. They just aren't my favorite for bras and panties anymore, but I did always love their lip stuff and some of their body scents! May need to go check out that gloss. Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  24. I was wondering who you'd be cheering for this weekend... The Jags really need this win!! Jacksonville would be insane!!!! XOXO, R

  25. I always forget to make the recipes that I save! Meatballs sound delicious - I've never made them from scratch but I can imagine how good!

    ReplyDelete
  26. So fun that your two teams are playing each other-- that always makes it a little easier to watch since you probably won't be overly disappointed with a win by either team. My doppelgänger kept coming back as a little boy, lol. I think you can totally pull of a beret and that one looks so pretty!

  36. Hope you get to enjoy some outdoors this weekend! The meatballs look delicious and I think the beret hat would look super cute on you especially with your long dark hair. The grey with pearls is my favorite because it more subtle but I'm sure you can pull either color off. You can't that price!

  37. I am sooooo obsessed with the barret trend right now too! I've been on the hunt for the perfect one, but never thought to check amazon!
