Friday Favorites

Happy Friday babes!  Today it is all about everything I have been loving this week...

This Book
I'm now reading Shopaholic to the Stars by Sophie Kinsella.  I love it.  I have loved every Shopaholic book, I don't care how cheesy and mindless they are.  I love it even more because it brings me back to LA.  It's a great download (would be even better on the beach!)

. . .

My New Favorite Lamp
Target is killing it with their lamps lately.  I want to buy new ones every time I am in there, and have wasted a solid hour mixing the bases and lamps.  #timesuck #itsawesome  I picked up this base and this shade for our bedroom (times two, of course.) I love them and now I wanted the larger mercury glass bases for our living room.

. . .

I got this in a giveaway I won from Amanda and loved it so much I ordered a second bottle.  This stuff is amazing and I wore it all summer.  It's equally awesome in the winter (a big suprise!) It has a very light scent, it's super light when it goes on and dries right away, BUT it gives great moisture.  It's a little pricey but it literally lasted me months.

. . .

Holiday Cards
I live for family pictures, ordering cards, and addressing, stuffing of the cards annually.  I think getting holiday cards in the mail may be one of the best little highs in life.  The kids and I race to the mailbox every day to check for them and add them to our growing wall of cards!  I am going to try to make a DIY cork holder thing... once I figure out where one buys a yardstick? 

. . .

Elf on the Shelf
I love to hate this thing - he goes by Gingersnap in our house.  Some nights we get an awesome idea and get really into it and other nights are totally half-assed.  I do, however, really love the book. It's just the right length and it's pretty cute.  If you don't feel like dealing with the elf (I can't blame you!) give the book a try!

. . .

Family photos gone wrong
I have looked at this link wayyyy too many times this week purely based on the fact that it makes me laugh until I cry.  

I'm linking up with Amanda for Friday Favorites!

Have a fabulous weekend!

  1. Happy Friday! Is it bad that I'm excited to finally be able to break out my elf next year once my little guy is a little older and can understand is?! I'm sure I'll also forge a love/hate relationship once we break it out -haha! I'll have to check out that moisturizer - my skin goes a little crazy in the winter, plus I love anything almond scented. Have a great weekend! xoxo

  4. I love your lamp! Target does have great lamps. That moisturizer looks good. I love the family photos gone wrong, because I can absolutely relate lol! Our photos are always kind of laughable...I don't understand how people's family photos come out so breathtakingly beautiful. Having 3 kids does not help our case I don't think haha. xo

  7. Yeah so happy you are linking up!!!! My sister and her husband keep on forgetting to move that damn elf and then when their nanny gets there she has to come up with some elaborate letter and lie about why "Mr. Steve couldn't fly back to the North Pole last night". She keeps on posting it on Facebook and tagging my sister "soooooo Mr. Steve apparently eat too many marshmallows last night and was too full to fly" or whatever. It is my daily entertainment. Adding that moisturizer to my must try list! Hope you have a great weekend!!!

  8. Target has definitely been on point lately with their lamps! Plus they've had cartwheel deals for 20-30% off lamps ;-)

    Happy Friday!

  9. This post is so awesome! That photos gone wrong link made me laugh so hard I cried! Great find! Is it wrong that I LOVE pics of kids crying on Santa's lap? I yelled at Taylor last night for not ever letting me get one of her sobbing. Also, thank you for sharing with me about the new Sophie Kinsella book! I am going to download it tonight!

  14. Cheesy and mindless are two qualities I look for in books!! Love the lamps - I'm also dying over all of West Elms. I just told Nick I need to buy more furniture just so I have places to put all of the ones I want to buy!
