Hellooooo! It’s Friday and I am psyched! Hooray for the weekend!
As I was typing up this blog post this morning, I started looking back on old Things I’m Loving Friday posts. I was surprised to see that last week marked one year since I started sharing these posts. (I’m not technically on #53 this week because I missed a few weeks here and there in the beginning.) I feel like I just started this tradition on the blog a few months ago. Time flies, my friends!
This post is one of my favorites to write every week and I love chatting with you guys about what we’re loving! I’ve discovered lots of great things thanks to comments you’ve left on this post (House of Cards, yummy snacks, hilarious videos) and your comments always make me smile. Thanks so much for participating in the fun every week!
Let’s get to it!
Things I’m Loving
- Fall Decorations
I know a bunch of people freak out when they see holiday decor available in stores months before the holidays. I’m sorry, my friends, but I am the problem. It’s people like me who fuel the fire. I’ve already purchased autumn decorations… and Thanksgiving napkins. I can’t help it! I am a sucker for the holidays and I’m feeling especially excited this year since Ryan and I will actually experience real seasons!! Hooray for changing leaves!
No, I do not own this, but I do love it. How pretty! I adore stackable bracelets and think this one would look so cute (and inconspicuous) with other gold bracelets. And what a great way to hide a Fitbit in a much less obvious way! (For a cheaper way to hide a Fitbit, I found these “smart pocket” bracelets on Etsy.)
This was the first BirchBox sample I’ve ever received that caused me to buy the full-size version before I used up the entire sample. It’s fantastic and, hands down, the best lip stain I’ve ever used. My lips are not naturally pink and tend to just bend right into my face, so a stain that gives them a little color and lasts for hours is right up my alley. (It’s not nearly as bright as it looks!) Stainiac quickly became my favorite because it lasts, goes on like regular lip gloss and doesn’t immediately dry out my lips (<— my number one complaint regarding most lip stains). My fellow BirchBox beauty lovers also gave it rave reviews on the site, so I know I’m not alone in thinking this lip stain is the jam.
- Two Silly Vizsla Videos
Sharing these for the vizsla lovers out there…
Velcro Vizsla Doesn’t Want Her Owner To Read <—This is 110 percent Sadie.
How is it that all vizslas behave exactly the same? They’re so ridiculous and so, so awesome.
- Orange is the New Black
At the urging of many of you and my friend Leah, Ryan and I began watching Orange is the New Black two weeks ago. I am loving it (Ryan is “intrigued” but not as enamored as me). I find the show hilarious and just plain entertaining. Thanks for the recommendation!! (And FYI for those as curious as I was about the intro, the opening credits feature the eyes of formerly incarcerated women.)
