Friday Favorites


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

ONE

Well people, what a week it has been. After failing my Series 7, I had to pick myself up and start focusing on passing my Series 63. Wednesday was my exam and to say I was nervous is an understatement. Well y'all...


...I passed! That is my ultimate favorite for this week! To pass you have to get a 72 and I got an 85!!

Here's my "I'm so happy I could cry" face!


Work paying off is such a great feeling. I'm Series 63 certified, people!

TWO

Everyone has their drink of choice. Some like red wine, some prefer beer, or scotch on the rocks. Well mine is Prosecco. If we ever go to dinner or a bar, 9.5 times out of 10 I will order Prosecco. It's bubbly like champagne but tastier like wine without being too sweet. In my opinion it's the perfect drink :)

I found a cheaper bottle, Cupcake, at the grocery store that's so delicious.

Try a glass after dinner and thank me later!

THREE

I'm always looking for breakfast ideas that are quick, easy, and full of protein. I'm a breakfast eater so I need something that'll fill me up! I found Cheerios Protein cereal and instantly it became my go-to breakfast. 


Listen, I'm one of those people who gets on a breakfast kick and eats the same thing everyday for a year then gets tired of it. Before this cereal, it was an egg breakfast sandwich. If you're looking for a new breakfast idea, try out this cereal!

FOUR

Last night my coworkers peer pressured me into going to Alive after 5, which is a bar special for professionals on Thursday nights. We had so much fun as usual! If you're local to Charlotte you should definitely check it out. 


Side note, I'm wearing my favorite lipstick, MAC Snob. If you don't already have it...GET IT! It's seriously the best. 


I'm also wearing one of my favorite pairs of earrings, Kendra Scott "Elle" Drop Earrings. They are so cute and go with everything!




Haha I look like such a pimp with all the guy!

It's the weekend! My college roommate is coming into town and I have plans to hangout with some of my coworkers! Looking forward to taking a break before diving into studying! Have a great weekend everyone!

  7. Congratulations on passing! I am totally with you on Prosecco, for some reason it seemed to be our drink of choice on a trip to New Orleans a few months ago and I haven't looked back!
