Before the weekend officially kicks off and we (hopefully) spend some time away from our computers, I wanted to be sure to share your weekly Things I’m Loving Friday blog post with you guys. Below you will find a small roundup of some of the things that are making me smile this week. As always, please feel free to join in the fun in the comments section of this post!
Things I’m Loving Friday
- Over-the-Knee Boots
Thank you guys so much for the boot compliments on the blog and Instagram! I actually just ordered the boots about two weeks ago from RueLaLa and can already tell they’re going to be a fall and winter wardrobe staple for me. I ordered them after pinning a few too many over-the-knee outfit pictures on Pinterest and I couldn’t get them out of my mind. I wanted them to have a flat heel so they’re more comfortable and practical for everyday wear and am really happy with the Catherine Malandrino pair I purchased.
In case you’re in the market for some over-the-knee boots, here’s a small selection of a few others (all under $150) that caught my eye!
- Essie Petal Pushers Nail Polish
I Amazon Primed (<- pretty sure that’s a verb nowadays) this beautiful gray color of Essie nail polish after blog reader Kaitlin commented on my Friday post saying Petal Pushers was the “perfect shade of gray.” I’ve been on the lookout for a gray polish for a while and feel like so many of them look almost dirty but Kaitlin’s comment inspired me to look up the Essie polish and investigate. It looked gorgeous – a light gray with subtle hints of a moody light blue – and I ordered it immediately. It arrived on Tuesday evening and I painted my nails with the color that night as Ryan and I watched Jeopardy. I’ve been loving it all week and agree with Kaitlin – It’s the perfect shade of gray!
- This Half-Up Hairstyle
How gorgeous is this half-up twisted hairstyle? I love it!!! I re-pinned it the moment I saw it on Pinterest and think it would be the most gorgeous bridesmaid or romantic date night hairstyle… The Small Things blog walks you through a hair tutorial so you can figure out how to recreate the layered twists at home. My hopes aren’t too high since I know my hairstyling abilities are pretty limited, but it’s on my radar!
- Ashley Spivey’s Snapchat (@ashspi)
This TILF favorite deserves a little bit of backstory. You guys know by now that watching The Bachelor and The Bachelorette is one of my guilty pleasures. Well, I loved Ashley Spivey, one of the women on Brad’s season of The Bachelor, and began following her on social media after she did one of my workouts way back in the day!
Anyway, I was stalking catching up on her Instagram earlier this week (I love her book recommendations and spunky personality) and stumbled upon an old Instagram photo that said she has a Snapchat account where she shares meal prep tips since she’s a nanny and works hard to feed the family she works for and herself a healthy diet. Her Snapchat account (@ashspi) has already given me a bunch of different meal prep ideas for our family and I love it! Just wanted to give it a shout out here in case you’re into healthy meal prep, too!
I am SO excited for this movie!!!!! First, I absolutely love Emma Watson (<— Please tell me someone else out there will forever refer to her as Hermione, too) and since I was basically obsessed with Beauty and the Beast as a little girl, this movie is a must-see for me. The trailer looks so, go good!
