It's Friday the 13th!  Who is spooked?!  Not me!  I actually think there is something lucky about Fridays that fall on the 13th, maybe because my parents met on one and I wouldn't be here without it?   Back to Friday, and linking up with Amanda to share what's awesome this week!
This Organized Board/Work Station

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 

Best Dressed
Taylor Swift's Grammy gown and shoes were to die for! I would never think that this shade could look so stunning and the pop of pink just makes it.  It's different, fun, and surprisingly chic.  Nailed it TSwizzle!

Coconut Oil

Speaking of Amanda, I decided to start moisturizing with Coconut Oil just to see if it works as well as she said in her dry skin post.  It does.  I was shocked!  It goes on almost like an oil, but dries right away and packs a ton of moisture, especially on my Sahara skin.  I also love it for cooking, in coffee, and now as an all-over body moisture.  Best new beauty product find!

Best Drink
After reading about matcha green tea powder and all of its benefits (energy, crazy amounts of antioxidants, boosts metabolism, and on and on.)  Seriously, google this stuff your mind will be blown.  I am planning an entire post on this in the future.  But I digree, a teaspoon, some almond milk and one of these whisks and an easy matcha latte could be all yours.  I have basically quit coffee and just drink this instead.  I put 1/2 teaspoon of matcha in a bowl with 2-4 ounces hot water and whisk.  I add eight ounces of unsweetened almond milk and a few dashes of stevia and shake it in a blender bottle.  Easy and healthy!

Bootcut Jeans
As much as I love a good pair of skinny jeans, bootcut are making their way back!  These are what is pictured, but I also love thesethese and these.  I scoured the mall for a pair I love with no luck this week, so I may just order a pair online.  I love this style with a pair of pointy toed pumps - makes my 2004 loving heart happy.

What are you loving this week?

Have a fabulous weekend and stay warm!

  1. That work station is like my dream! Wanna come make it for me? :)
    Love T Swift's look--she's stunning!
    I keep hearing amazing things about coconut oil and I feel like I need to get on this bandwagon!
    Hope you have a great weekend!!

  2. Yes to everything! I still need to hop on the coconut oil bandwagon and I want to try that matcha-sounds like exactly what I need! I am so pumped boot cut jeans are coming back, now imagine me raising the roof circa early 00s ;)

  3. I need to try that green tea!! How dose it taste? I want to also, try the coconut oil :) Thanks for sharing

  4. Friday the 13th is a lucky day because we got engaged 6 years ago on Friday, February 13th :-D

    That green tea latte looks fabulous, totally craving one now.

    Happy Friday gurlie <3

  5. OMG! You just made my day. Am I the only one that HATES skinny jeans? They only look good on Kate Moss or tucked into boots. They make everyday women look so hippy and chunky. HATED IT.

  6. Ummm I just sold my pair of boot cut jeans - now looks like I need another pair!! Hope you have a great weekend! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  7. yeah!!!!!!!!!! I am so glad you tried it! Isn't it amazing how well it moisturizes and absorbs so quickly without being greasy?! I am obsessed! Glad I didn't steer you wrong again!

  8. Are bootcuts really making their way back?! I love my skinnies but they get so dang uncomfortable sometime so I'd be all for this! And love that your parents met on Friday the 13th - it's good luck for you :) Happy Friday!

  9. Ha! Glad they're coming back because I've been wearing them since 2004, I like the way they fit my legs better. The latte looks so good, can't wait for your post on the green tea. And T. Swift looked amazing! Have a great weekend love xoxo

  10. I need to try that green tea. I'm always trying to find new ways to get some energy instead of drinking coffee. Nothing works as well as coffee tho. lol

  11. absolutely loving your choices this week! enjoy your weekend… and green tea - yum!

  12. Boot cut jeans are TRULY the most flattering jeans for every shape!! And a pairing with a pointed shoe--perfection! PLEASE do a post about the green tea soon--all your readers will love it! I just started SlinnyMint 28 day de-tox but will start Matcha after that. Love your blig!!

  13. Taylor KILLED it. Also, have you tried coconut oil to whiten your teeth? I keep reading about it as a quicker way than white strips! I will definitely purchase it now that you are raving about it as a moisturizer. xo

  14. Im glad you discovered how great coconut oil is for beautifying! I discovered it when I was preg with Emily and looking for a natural way to cleanse my face and keep breakouts at bay. It also happens to be remarkable at preventing stretch marks. I can't wait till you post more about the matcha green tea powder. It sounds amazing and giving up coffee would be great for me. xo

  15. i looove coconut oil, both for cooking and skincare. i want to use it for whitening my teeth too!
