Five on Friday/Friday Favorites

I promise this blog isn't going to become a collection of Five on Friday/Friday Favorites posts, I just had some spare time on Wednesday and figured I'd compile a list of things for a Friday post.  And by the way, I haven't figured out if I want this to just be "Five on Friday" or "Friday Favorites" sooooo I'm combining the titles until I decide. I'm leaning more toward Friday Favorites but I think it just might depend on what kind of week I had!


My new hair!!
 If you remember this post where I asked you guys what you thought about the "subtle long bob" you'll know that I've been wanting to try this style for quite some time. My step-sister is in cosmetology school so when I went home this past weekend I had her chop it off! This may not be "short" hair to you, but to me it was a huge step! I was sure I would regret it but I've been loving it! I may even get it cut a tiny bit shorter in a couple weeks :)


DaVinci Gourmet French Vanilla Syrup. 
You can use this stuff in everything. We've been putting it in baked goods (like vanilla extract), coffee, hot chocolate, homemade frappuccinos and it's been a really yummy touch! Makes it taste extra special, and it comes in several flavors...I think we're going to go for hazelnut next!


NYX Liquid Lipshine in Clear. 
In my last post I talked about how I was loving Mary Kate and Ashley's natural makeup in one of their old movies. I bought a clear lipgloss to help achieve the glossy, pouty lip look from the movie and I think it's so cute! My lips are naturally very pigmented, but I like that this looks natural but that my makeup looks "done" because my lips do have something on them. Also, I surprisingly like how flexible the applicator is. I can apply this without looking, yes because it's clear, but also because I know no matter what angle I'm holding it, it's going to hit my lips and not be a goopy mess.


The progress of the master bedroom! 
I love the white fluffy bedding and we finally ordered and received our headboard! I was so excited to come back and see it. I feel like a headboard alone makes a bed look much more complete, but I love how lush this one makes everything look with the tufting. Also, the starburst mirror is something I've been searching for so when I went home I went to a Kirklands and when I spotted this one I knew it was the one! Plus, it was only $60 and usually starburst mirrors are well over $100 (the one we almost ordered was $160 on sale so this was an awesome deal!) We still need accent pillows and matching nightstands, but I'm really happy with the progress so far!

It's September! 
Even though I'm not a fan of how quickly time is going by, I'm ridiculously excited that fall is on its way. That means pumpkins, leaves changing, a chill in the air, boots, halloween, Thanksgiving and of course Christmas festivities will begin!

Let me know what you've been loving! Have a great weekend!!

  4. Your hair looks AMAZING girl! Absolutely LOVE it!!! And also, I love fluffy White bedding too! :)

  5. Your hair looks so pretty. I have cut mine to a mid length a few months ago and I'm thinking about cutting it even shorter. And I also love your bedroom. It looks so cute!


    1. I was scared to go any shorter at first, but I think I'm comfortable enough now that next time I'll go about an inch shorter :)

  6. Your hair!!!! I've been fighting the urge to do the same thing to mine--unlike you I'm sure I'll regret it instantly--but I'm crushing on the cut so bad! It looks so great on you!

    1. Hahaha, thank you!! I honestly thought I was going to regret it too. I always regret it when I get my hair cut more than an inch, but I think I had just had enough of it. You should just do it! You'll never know until you try :)

  7. Loving the master bedroom and your hair looks great!
