Friday Favorites! #1

Hello and Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely in the TGIF mood today. We’ve had weddings the past two weekends which were so much fun, but I’m looking forward to a low key couple of days at home.

So in honor of the end of the week, I thought I would share some things that have made me happy this past week in a new Friday Favorites series. I hope you enjoy 🙂

New Nail Polish

I treated myself to a mani-pedi about 2 weeks ago, and was so disappointed when not even a week later my toes were chipping! I count on my pedis lasting at least a couple weeks, plus we had another wedding to attend where I was wearing open toed shoes. Not really wanting to get another pedicure and not having time to completely redo my nails myself, I stopped by Duane Reade to find an inexpensive color for touch ups.

I came across the Sinful Colors brand, where not only did I find a white that matched Essie’s Blanc for my toe touch ups, but I couldn’t say no to this fun color either, it’s called Thimbleberry!

The polishes were on sale, 2 for $3. And yes, I know you get what you pay for in terms of the color lasting, but I was so excited to paint my phalanges this bright coral shade this week, even if it did only last a few days.

Yankee Apple Candle

Does anything smell better than fall candles? Seriously. This autumn I can’t be home for more than 10 minutes before lighting a seasonal candle or turning on my Scentsy.

I picked up this gem at HomeGoods a few weeks ago. A large Yankee candle for $12! It smells heavenly too.

Spice Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

I shared this recipe earlier this week for Spice Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, and let me tell you, I have been aggressively snacking on them all week!

I’m still a little bummed that I bought shelled pumpkin seeds, instead of shell on. But I’ll just have to make a new batch soon and try a new recipe to share with you all!

Maple Pecan Granola Cereal

This box of Maple Pecan Granola Cereal caught my eye at Trader Joe’s last weekend and hello, I am obsessed. It’s perfectly flavored without being too maple-y. I’ve been looking forward to breakfast all week, it’s a great way to kick off my morning. Make it even better by topping it off with some Vanilla Almond Milk. Swoon. This keeps me full until lunchtime too.
