This week I wanted to do something a little different with my Friday Favorites post. I have been loving You Tube. You probably already know that I love to watch makeup videos on You Tube. In the past I thought You Tube was more for watching funny videos or for figuring out how to fix something. I was so wrong! I was looking for some info on how to do a smokey eye about two years ago. I stumbled upon a girl named Jaclyn Hill on You Tube, who is a professional makeup artist.I watched her video and then proceeded to watch every video she had ever made! Then I discovered all these other girls who do these videos too and my life was
Recently, I have tried to branch out and find videos on health, interior designing and organizing. There are not many home decorating channels that I can find( if you know of any..please comment below). So, anyways I thought I would share some of my favorites! Links to their You Tube Channels will also be below.
Garden Grove Floral Watch-I saw this on Francesca’s site while searching for Mother’s Day Gifts I have to be honest. I have never stepped foot in this store. We have had one for awhile in our local mall and it just seemed like an “older lady” store. I saw some younger girls on YouTube who purchased some really cute jewelry there and thought I better give it a chance… while I was at the mall a few days ago. I am glad I did. They have the cutest clothes, shoes and jewelry!
Heart Coffee Mug Set– I would love to buy these mugs from the Etsy shop owner, but they are a bit too much for my pocketbook. I thought these were great inspiration for a DIY project!
Mac Blush in Melba-I did it. I went to MAC and bought my first blush by them. I was afraid I would fall in love, because again these are pricey…but they have the pretties colors. Of course, I fell in love. This shade, Melba, is a gorgeous peachy pink. Perfect for Spring! (At least that is how I justified it and I may have purchased another shade).
#redballoonsforryan Tote– My sweet friend Alyssa of Beckett’s Threads is donating all the proceeds of her red balloon stamped leggings, shorts and this adorable tote to the family that tragically lost their little boy last Friday. For more info and pricing you can follow Beckett’s Threads on FB or on IG. She makes the cutest stamped leggings, shorts and even came out with her signature stamp on a t-shirt. My little man loves his shirt.
Ikat Glasses Case-I wish I would have seen this case before I purchased my last sunglass case. This one looks super retro and I am in love. If you are like me and constantly wear sunglasses this is a must for protecting them from everything in your purse.
Palazzo Pants-Do you guys remember these? I can’t believe I am old enough for styles to be making another round! I wore these wide legged pants in high school. I personally love them because they flare out and distract from my booty and hips. They are also super comfortable and a great light weight pant option for the Spring and Summer.
Happy Friday Y’all! I am so ready for the weekend. As promised I am sharing some of my favorites from this week.
This might be a little premature to add something to my favorites that I have actually never tried or been to….but how can you go wrong with a place called the Donut Bar !!?? Has anyone gone? They have a location in Orange County and one in San Diego(my two favorite places). Each day they open at 7am (8am on weekends) and are open until they sell out. They feature so many unique flavors like Creme Brulee and Brad Fritter! I can’t wait to make a trip out to one of the locations. Donuts are my all time favorites of favorites!
I am so happy Nate Berkus is back on TV. I miss The Nate Berkus Show! His new show is an Interior Designer competition show. Each Sunday at 8pm on NBC the contestants get a new challenge to complete. So far, they have had to completely design a home inside and out. One week it was a Spanish home, another a Mid Century Modern and then a Cabin in the Woods. They are all so talented. Definitely a new favorite If you love it too…come over on Sundays…it can be our thing and we can eat donuts:). Oh, did I mention I am not eating carbs?…yeah.
Have a wonderful weekend! I am going to the Flea Market on Sunday. Hoping to share my finds with you next week!
