Friday Favorites




TGIF! Today I'm linking up with Andrea, Erika, and Narci for Friday Favorites!

ONE

Last Saturday night, I had the privilege to babysit my baby cousins. I love babies, debatably an unhealthy amount! Ada Marie is 2 years old and her baby sister, Leona, is 3 months old. I had so much fun with them. Thanks to Katie and Joel for allowing me to keep their precious babies!

Miss Ada Marie rocking in her chair. She's such a sweet pea. 



I just loved keeping Leona. She loves to be held and I love to hold her! She's snuggly, cute, and so content. 




That belly kills me!

I have big plans for a beauty series coming up but this tip cannot wait to be shared! I have been wearing NARS multiple stick in Orgasm as a blush for a little over a year now. I love it way more than I had anticipated. It took me a little bit to get the hang of but once I did I would never go back to regular powder blush. 

It's the perfect shade because it adds colors to your cheeks but has golden undertones to add an air of being tan! Also, a cream blush stays put longer and is more natural looking in my opinion. It lasts awhile so it's worth the investment! I got a new tube this week and I expect it'll last me till Christmas.

A really neat aspect of my job is that everyday there's a different food truck parked outside for lunch. On Wednesday, the cupcake truck was there and I just couldn't say no. I decided to go with the cookies and cream and it didn't disappoint. It was a nice treat for the middle of the week! 

And let's not forget that cake to icing ratio...:)


FOUR

Last Friday night, I went to my church's worship team's live recording at Time Warner Cable Arena. My church, Elevation, is HUGE and has a great atmosphere. Their worship team has the absolute best Christian music. If you haven't heard of them, you should definitely look them up. They have a Spotify playlist. 

The concert exceeded my expectations. I was so moved by the power of God that was in that arena. My roommate and I were so touched by the whole experience. These pictures don't even do it justice. Their album comes out in February...can't wait!







Well, that's all I have for you today. It's been a pretty uneventful week full of studying. Have a great weekend y'all! xoxo

  3. Omg. That cupcake. If I wouldn't gain 100 pounds, I would totally buy just a container of icing every week at the grocery store to keep in my fridge. LOVE. Your cousins have the prettiest names and the prettiest faces! What precious little girls :) And was the concert at your church?! Because you are right, HUGE! My church (in DC) has 8 locations so there are a lot of us but we are never all in the same place at the same time lol. That is so cool that you got to worship together!

  5. Can't wait to read your beauty series! I'm always so curious about what others use.

    Those babies are adorable! Looks like you guys had fun!

    That cupcake is intense! I thought that was ice cream on the top and not icing. Love that you have food trucks at work!

    Have a good weekend Lauren!
