And thanks so much for taking time out of your holiday weekend to stop by PBF today!
I think I am STILL full from yesterday’s Thanksgiving eating extravaganza but you better believe I am pumped for lots of leftovers today. Anyone else out there think pumpkin pie pairs perfectly with a hot cup of coffee for breakfast? Anyone!? (Don’t knock it ‘til ya try it!)
It’s Friday so it should be no surprise that today I’m sharing my usual Things I’m Loving Friday blog post on the blog which highlights a small roundup of some of the things that are making me smile right now. I hope you will join in the fun and share a little bit about something you are loving in the comments section of this post.
Have a great weekend! And enjoy every bite of your Thanksgiving leftovers!!
Things I’m Loving Friday
Of course this is the first item on my list for today! I will be sure to share a recap of our Thanksgiving weekend on Monday but having my parents in town to celebrate Thanksgiving with us is, without a doubt, what I am loving most this week! Good times, good food, good people. My favorite!
You guys always seem to knock it out of the park with your TILF recommendations and this is one recommendation I somehow forgot to highlight on the blog for weeks! A while ago, I commented on how much I love Sally Hansen Instant Dry nail polish for its rapid dry abilities but complained about the fact that it seems to chip easily. Well, blog readers Julie and Ali chimed in to recommend Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat nail polish (paired above with my new fav Essie Petal Pushers) and told me it turns almost any nail polish into a rapid-drying polish.
You guys, it’s a total game changer! I use it ALL the time and it has allowed me to use some of my favorite nail polishes again since I was avoiding a lot of them because I felt like I never had time to sit down and paint my nails and wait for them to dry anymore. It’s super cheap (less than $5) and it has more than 5,000 positive Amazon reviews. If you’re impatient like I am when it comes to giving your nails time to dry, definitely give this stuff a try. Amazing!
This tiny little cloth is unbelievable. It completely removes makeup with only water and I use it every single night after I wash my face and it does the BEST job at removing stubborn eye makeup. (I still personally prefer to use my favorite cleanser rather than just water when I wash my face but I think we all know that face wash doesn’t exactly do a stellar job at removing eye makeup.) I previously blogged about the Wonder Cloth and while I still love it, I must admit the Makeup Eraser Cloth is superior. I think this would make a great stocking stuffer for the beauty lovers out there!
- November PopSugar Must Have Box
November’s PopSugar Must Have Box was a total WIN!!! They clearly knew exactly what I needed this month and have already used almost everything in the box! The gorgeous Pehr wine/cream table runner was the perfect addition to our Friendsgiving table and we used the Meri Meri sparkly star cupcake toppers from the box on top of the vanilla and chocolate cupcakes I picked up from Whole Foods to add a little festive flare. Thanks so much for the fun delivery, PopSugar!!
