TGIF! Do you remember when you were a kid and couldn’t wait till Friday because of the  TGIF TV lineup on ABC at night? Just me? #Weird If you don’t know what I am talking about – here is a link to educate yourself on it.

Before we get to Friday Favorites – a very Happy Birthday to my Grandma!

Sending lots of love your way today – can’t wait to celebrate at the end of the month when I am back home. Everyday we find we are more and more alike. Case in point – we react the same at Sea World!

Time for Friday Favorites! I find that I do the most bookmarking/online shopping on Friday’s because I find so many things I want to try via blogging. Hope some of my favorites sneak into your shopping carts soon!

Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

I teased you yesterday in the question section about a new favorite beauty product. Well here is the big reveal – Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue. I absolutely love this stuff. It is the perfect beauty item to have in your bag when you are getting ready at the gym in the morning. I don’t wear foundation or like any heavy face makeup. It is nice to have a moisturizer though with a little tint so you can even out your skin without it feeling like paint. The product itself is light but I think it gives a great coverage. I used to use the Aveeno Tinted Moisturizer  (all the way from my first Friday Favorites), but have now moved on with Bare Minerals. I love this product so much that I have two – one for at home and one for my gym bag.

Somedays I will just wear the cream by itself and somedays if I want a little more coverage I will put on Bare Minerals powder foundation and bronzer. For reference I buy the ginger.

TJ Pumpkin Tea

The only thing that would make this tea better is if it had caffeine in it ha. Actually it is a probably a good thing this tea doesn’t have tea because I enjoy it in the afternoon at work or after dinner. The flavors are amazing and strong which I like in my tea. I am typically not a big tea person but I love the strong cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla spices!

I haven’t tried it with a splash of almond milk yet, but I am sure it takes it up another notch. Maybe this weekend!

New iPhone 6S

Don’t think I mentioned this on the blog, but in June I dropped my iPhone right on the sweet spot and shattered my entire phone. When I say shattered – I mean it. Instagram was tough – I couldn’t read captions (#firstworldproblem). To make matters worse my screen LED got messed up so the colors on my phone were all faded. My upgrade wasn’t till October so I decided to wait it out – which meant dealing with an iPhone that acted more as a brick than a phone.

On Wednesday I received good news! I could upgrade to the new phone 18 days early. I am going right after work to make the switch. I don’t know what I am going to do with a fully functioning iPhone – can’t wait!

Fab Fit Fun Fall 2015 Box

I’m still obsessing over the Fall Fab Fit Fun box. If you missed my post yesterday, check it out here so you know what I am loving so much. Also, how could I not fall in love with the box when their motto is “All you need is love & pumpkin spice lattes.”

Pumpkin Recipes



Fall is here – aka everything Pumpkin hits the supermarket shelves and the blogosphere. I have seen some really great recipes lately that I want to try! If you haven’t had enough pumpkin yet (you better not have – it is way too early) check out my post from last year – Pumpkin Recipes (I went crazy last year with pumpkin recipes and I’m not going to apologize for it)! And check out these other recipes from other bloggers:

I think those recipes should hold you over until next week when I am back with a new pumpkin recipe! And this one isn’t a sweet.

Have a great Friday and a great weekend! 

I’m linking up with HeatherKatie and Claire today for Friday Favorites. Check out whatever else is loving lately too!
