Favorites Friday

My favorites this week may be a bit boring, but my week has been fairly boring. My city had a pretty intense (for us…it’s the south, we’re not prepared for ice and snow) winter storm come through and I’ve been literally iced in most of the week. Which coincidentally means I was in my pajamas most of the week, oops. However, I did have some nice moments that I would love to share, mostly of my daughters.

I hope that you all enjoy these posts, and if this is your first time visiting my blog, make sure to stick around and follow me if you want to!

1. I suppose I can start off with what I received from Jeremy for Valentine’s Day. He picked me up some pretty flowers and my Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter stack was also a gift from him. He’s pretty swell, I may keep him around for a bit. The Pixi Dust was actually something I purchased on clearance! I love Pixi, so I’m excited to try those out and unlock their shimmery goodness.

2. This is an older picture, but it still applies for this week since I was pretty much living in warm socks and jammies all week. That book is actually wonderful, and if you love magic and witches please read it! Those socks are also incredibly warm and so tall. I typically have trouble finding nice thigh high socks that work out for me since I do have thicker thighs (thanks, soccer). However, these stay up and were very affordable!

3. Ah, the Knoxville Icemaggedon 2015. I wish I could say all that pretty snow was powder, but it wasn’t. So, we ended up not playing in it. Maryna enjoyed herself though. She looked so natural and happy sitting in the cold wind. Must be nice to have a built in fur coat with a heater.

4. Can we just talk about how much older my 2 year old looks in these photos? We went out for a bit to get some fresh air since the roads cleared up, and I put a scarf on Harmony since it was bitterly cold. I didn’t expect it to take her from toddler to teenager in 3.5 seconds. And yes, she is left handed! We ended up going out for sushi and doing a bit of shopping and browsing around, and it was nice. Much needed fresh air.

5. Piper was my cuddle and laundry buddy all week. She kept me warm and played with her toes while I tried to catch up on laundry. Is is just me, or do tiny humans have an obscene amount of laundry? I feel like no matter how much I wash, there’s always a mountain of laundry somewhere else that also needs to be washed. Phew.

What were some of your favorite things for the week?

It’s time to round up my favorites for the week again! A few beauty and non beauty related things this week 🙂

1. Jeremy (da boyfriend) and I went on a very nice date last week with *gasps* no kids. We ended up at our favorite Italian restaurant and had a glass of wine and had some really nice conversations. He then took me out shopping for a bit (a man after my own heart) and treated me to some new perfume. It was a really romantic and nice evening. Honestly, I really needed a night alone with him, even if for just a few hours, to just kind of “reset” in a sense.

2. Most worn Jewelry Piece- This week I have been wearing my “Madeline” ring from shophellkitten’s etsy shop. I love this ring so much. There’s such a classic and vintage feel to it, and it was very affordable. Please look her shop up if you haven’t, she sells some beautiful pieces! I think there’s a promo code you can use right now as well 🙂

3. I also spent some much needed time out with both of my favorite little ladies, Piper and Harmony. We had a warmer “Spring” type of day here, so I took them both out to lunch and to do a bit of shopping. We had a blast. I spend every day with them at home, but sometimes I feel that we all need to get a bit dressed up and go out for a bit. I always end up having so many people approach me to tell me how beautiful and sweet they both are. I mean, look at them. They’re gorgeous.

4. Favorite lip combo- Nyx intense butter gloss in “toasted marshmallow.” I won’t get into this gloss too much because I do have a review of it coming soon, but it’s amazeballs. I loooooove this color. I may end up buying a second one to keep in my purse at all times.

5. Favorite Find- During my shopping trip with Piper and Harmony, I decided to meander around Marshall’s just to see what was on clearance and such. Well, I ended up finding a Kat Von D eyeshadow palette…the one I was looking for awhile back! And for $10!! I also picked up an everlasting lipstick in “Backstage Bambi” for $7. Totally out of my comfort zone, but I will still try it out. I also went to Ulta because I needed a new powder, so I’m giving the Laura Geller balance and brightening powder a chance. I will let you all know my thoughts on it soon!

Well, these are a few of my favorite things for the week, what were some of yours?
