Friday Favorites: November 3rd, 2017

Happy November!!!! This girl is ready for the holiday season to begin. We FINALLY have some cooler weather here (hooray!) and Halloween is in the books (it felt like a long one, we started going to parties on the 26th!!) and I am ready to be thankful and eat pie. So here are all the things I’m excited about this week:

Christmas movies are on Hallmark already!!! Yep, I’m that girl. What can I say, I love Christmas, and I love happy endings. Don’t worry, I don’t take them all too seriously. One of my favorite past-times with my husband is mocking the super cheesy bad acting. If I had a dollar for every time I’ve yelled “I could have written that story better!” at the tv, I’d be so rich by now.



Caramel Brûlée Lattes are back at Starbucks!!! (wow, I’m really into the exclamation marks in this post, but I’m totally saying it like Oprah in my head as I type so I can’t help it) I wait all year long for my favorite drink, it’s my happy place.






The return of Long Lost Family on TLC. My husband and I refer to Monday nights as “cry night” when this show is airing, honestly, you cannot watch it without bawling your eyes out. It’s especially moving for me, since my extended family has their own adoption and reuniting stories we’ve experienced throughout my life. Starts November 6th at 8/7central.

Nordstrom Rack grand opening was last week. So this week I’m STILL SO EXCITED. I shared my finds from opening day in a video on my Facebook page , but I plan to return [alone] for some serious retail therapy soon. I had my 3yo with me opening day, which I have to give him props for hanging in and surviving, he rocked. But I’d rather not do that again…


Brilliant Life Planners drop in the Brilliant Business Moms shop TODAY (10amPacific). If you’re a mom, and you sell, make, create, or write ANYTHING and you don’t know who Beth Anne Schwamberger is, get to her site NOW. She’s such an incredible motivator and has so much knowledge. She is not paying me to say any of this, I’m just totally fan-girl-ing right now. Last year she created the Brilliant Life Planner, and this year I’ll be purchasing one of my own and reviewing for all my readers!! If you haven’t figured out yet, I’m a planner nerd, you can read this year’s reviews here.

My latest Sephora haul. When your hubs works in the PR/Ad world, sometimes he has friends who end up working cool places like Sephora and they are kind enough to share their annual Friends & Family discount code. Hollaaaa! I ordered new perfume, which I had tried at Ulta but did not want to pay full price for {Tory Burch: Love Relentlessly}, a Dior holiday set that came with their Show Pump & Volume Mascara (love, by the way) and the Tarte Tartiest Pro Glow contouring palette (also love).


That’s all for this week! I hope you’re all enjoying what is in my opinion, the most wonderful time of the year. 🙂 For more things I’m obsessed with make sure you’re following me on Instagram and like my Facebook page.
