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!

NUMBER 1:

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 :)

NUMBER 2:


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!

NUMBER 3:


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.

NUMBER 4:


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!

NUMBER 5:

hello, september

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!!

    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 :)
