Friday Favorites




Today I'm linking up with some of my favorite bloggers ErikaNarci, and Andrea for Friday Favorites!

TGIF, am I right or am I right!?!

Here's what I'm loving on this week...

ONE

This is a 2-for-1. The weekend before graduation two of my college friends and me got our cartilages pierced (Sorry Mom!). I really like it and am definitely glad I did it. Personally, I rather add some bling to my ears rather than a tattoo because I can always take them out! That's my preference...I know everyone is different.


I'm also loving my $8 studs from Nordstroms. I saw several bloggers talking about them but didn't think much of it. Then I decided to get a pair for my mom for Mother's Day. Any shade of blue or green is her favorite! I loved them so much I went out and bought myself a pair in the turquoise and in the pink. I absolutely love them! 

TWO

I've made Whole Yum's Bakery Style Blueberry Muffins twice. They are DELICIOUS. As an added bonus they are so easy to make! As long as you have blueberries, you can whip these up with ingredients you most likely already have. I brought them to Bible study one night and they were a hit. I would definitely try them out for your next brunch or get together!


THREE

I talked a little about my move to Charlotte on Wednesday. I forgot to mention one of my absolute favorite things about my apartment...IT IS RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO A PUBLIX. Hold up, how awesome is that!? I don't even have to cross a street to go to a Publix. It is so
convenient. As I drove home from work I snapped this picture. 


It is an added bonus that Publix is my favorite grocery store. 

FOUR

Getting up at 5:15 am to workout can be brutal. So one of my all time favorites is caffeine! I have been really relying on my old friend to get me through these last few weeks. My office has a cafeteria that has really great coffee that is relatively inexpensive. Almost everyday I end up suckering myself into buying some before I start work. 

My workout buddy Maggie and I excused it by calling it "Treat yoself Thursday" :) She bought some yummy oatmeal and I got coffee. 


Sometimes in this North Carolina heat I don't want a hot coffee in the afternoon when the temperature is in the 90's. So I have found a new Starbucks drink that I've been enjoying, Peach Green Tea Lemonade. Excuse my naked face but I had to show my excitement over having an afternoon pick-me-up!



FIVE

Nordstrom's is having their Anniversary sale and I am excited! They have some of the best clothes, jewelry, and beauty products. I love their free shipping and their return policy. I don't have a card so I can't buy early but I already have my wish list compiled so I can be ready! Here are some of my favorites...

1. This classic dress would be perfect for work! Because I workout and get ready at the gym I love wearing dresses to work. It's easy and I only have to bring one clothing item. 


2. I love a good watch. I have several but not an all gold one. I've been wanting a gold one and this one is adorable!


3. I love colored jeans especially ones for the fall. This is a great fall green that I would wear so much!


4. I've been wanting a small, simple, necklace to wear everyday with most/all outfits. This Kendra Scott necklace is PERFECT. I love Kendra Scott and this small pendant doesn't disappoint. 


5. I have this t-shirt in 2 colors and absolutely love them. They fit great and are really comfortable. I've wanted to buy a couple more and this sale is a perfect excuse.


Before I sign off for the weekend just a friendly reminder to follow me on Pinterest! I have a lot of really great boards going. You won't regret it! Have a great weekend, friends!

  2. I would absolutely LOVE to live next door to a grocery store! So many times I start a recipe and then realize I ran out of an ingredient. That would solve that problem. You are one lucky girl! Have a great weekend!

  5. Those blueberry muffins look divine!! I had been wavering on the $8 studs, glad to hear you love them!! I finally broke down and got the Nordstrom card just to shop the sale and it's almost overwhelming! I bought a few things yesterday and then I'm sure will purchase a few more as the sale goes on. Have a good weekend :)
    Thanks!

  12. I love those studs -- they look just like Kate Spade!! I'm also so jealous you live next to a Publix! I'm so ready for this Nordstrom sale to be open to the public. Everyone keeps posting about it and I'm over here drooling over everything.
