Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! This week chewed me up and spit me out. Working 8-6 all week and going the gym beforehand has wiped. me. out. But alas, it's the weekend and I'm looking forward to resting up and starting Christmas week (WHAT) off on the right foot. As always, I'm sharing some of my favorites this week...


Last weekend, I went to visit my friend, Kelsey, in Greenville! It was a short overnight trip but we always have the best time. She's one of my oldest friends and I have no doubt that we'll be friends forever! Just for kicks and giggles here's a throwback of us...

...don't let those innocent smiles fool you, we got in plenty of trouble :). But anyways, when I got there we went shopping and I did plenty of damage. That night we went to dinner and then out in the "city." 

I also got to hang out with one of her bestie from college!

The next morning we made our way to my favorite South Carolina sandwich shop ever, Grouchos. Oh how I missed it.

We had a blast. Exploring new places and seeing old friends is always a favorite!


Last weekend I headed to my cute cousin's birthday party! I decided that my outfit needed a punch and decided to add a bold, red, lip. I love this lipstick so much!

Okay, that picture of me is terrible...yikes. But it's a super deep red and not an orange red. A couple of lipstick tips...always exfoliate your lips and line the ENTIRE lip. The last thing you want is your lipstick to wear off but not your lipliner so you look silly. This color is perfect for the holidays. This is the same lipstick I used for my Sandy costume.


I saw this on Pinterest the other day and couldn't resist pinning it. I am such a feminist at heart and have a passion for encouraging and empowering women. I think this quote specifically spoke to me because I live in the South where it's often the case that people get married very young. 

Before anyone starts to hate me...of course, every circumstance is different. I just always want women (myself included) to realize that you have to be okay with yourself and being by yourself to truly be a good partner to someone else. **Steps off soapbox**


I have shared my love for the royal family before... I mean, they are some of the prettiest people I've ever seen! When I was scrolling through my timeline this morning I saw their most recent family photo and absolutely swooned.

So many things...Kate's hair color is flawless...George has the sweetest little hair flip...Charlotte is adorably different than her brother...and William is so sweet looking at them all. I could die.


Last but certainly not least...I booked my flight to go visit my friend, Kaity, in Washington DC!!

I am so excited! The last time I was in DC I was in 8th grade so I'm really excited to see everything as an adult! Also, my cousin Brenna lives there so I get to see her too! And my fellow blogger friend, Kylie, is in DC so I'd love to have the opportunity to meet up with her as well. So many people to see in such an exciting city! I can barely contain my excitement. The best part is that I booked a roundtrip, direct flight right out of Charlotte for $186 including taxes. BOOM!

Well ladies and gents, that's what my week has looked like. How are y'all? I'd love to hear what you would like me to blog about! Send me an email or comment below. Thanks as always for reading & have a great weekend! xoxo
