Friday Favorites #2

1. I love this movie.  This might be my favorite Nicholas Sparks book-made-to-movie out of all of them.  It's a close tie with The Lucky One and Dear John.

My favorite song from this movie: 
2. I'm really loving these bracelets lately.  I only have 3, but I wear them all the time.  
3. As the caption reads, FINALLY. OH MY GOSH. I can't tell you how much better I feel with this little piece of technology back in my hands.  I could NOT continue on with the Galaxy.  Sorry android users, APPLE is THE BEST. And the new iOS 7? YEAH, It's the sh**. 
4. This watch. (*the word "THIS" is a link to the actual one I want)  There is a friends and family sale coming up in Macy's and Michael and I might treat ourselves to new watches as our early Christmas gifts to each other.  I spied this watch on a random at the Ocktoberfest Rachel & I went to (actually she spied first) and we both were lusting over this. It's so cute in person!

5. I've gotten a lot of compliments on my lashes today at work.  I'd like to believe its the $23.00-expensive-as-hell-for-mascara I spent my money on*, but really I'm thinking it's the first time I've worn mascara since LASIK to work. And my eyes are just looking so awake and beautiful (as opposed to looking like a walking zombie like normal) So I'm convinced this is probably the best mascara I've ever laid my hands eyelashes on.

*P.S.: I really didn't spend $23.00 of my own money on this.  I had a $20 gift card to sephora, do you honestly think I would spend that much on MASCARA. Please.

Ok. maybe when I run out of it, I just may.

It really is that good.

After a whirlwind of a week, I guess it's pretty obvious that I'm ready for the weekend! Plans include: RELAXING and on Sunday I'm hosting my family over for my mom's birthday. On the menu: Penne Vodka (homemade, not that jar crap...thank you R for the recipe!), homemade meatballs in the crockpot, and a birthday cake.  OH. AND, PHOTOGRAPH the NEW office!

Linking up with Carolina Charm, Follow the Ruels, & Lauren Elizabeth.


  1. I LOVE that movie too & I loved the book! I can't wait to see your office all finished! Its pushing me to get started on my office makeover!

  2. I love Alex and Ani! I'm dying for more of those bracelets. I only have one, but I wear it all the time. I love that watch too! I love all MK's watches! And welcome back to the apple family! Hope you have a great, relaxing weekend pretty lady!!

  3. 1-I couldn't hack it with the Galaxy either. I got one last year, and exchanged it for an iPhone after a week. 2-That mascara is amazinggggg. That's what I'm currently using, and I absolutely love it. I got it as a gift, but I wouldn't think twice about spending the money on it. I've worn makeup for like 12 years, and it's the best one I've come across :]

  4. Can I just say I am jealous of all of this?! I want a boyfriend watch, Alex and Ani bracelets, and the new iPhone!

  5. The Alex and Ani bracelets are so cute and classic! I'm going to have to invest in one soon!

    Happy Friday! :)
