hi loves! happiest of Fridays!

current mood:

Friday's are my favorite, for many obvious reasons but I love doing Friday Favorites because it's always a happy post to write and to read y'all's! I had a great week getting to share my favorite drugstore items, my love for the holiday edition of Southern Living magazine and do a twist on one of the articles from that mag with my own mama.

1|| favorite quote- sometimes wanting to change is enough for the day.

Banana Boat Sunless Tanner- This is an item I forgot on my drugstore post but it's good enough to put on a Friday favorites list. I've heard great things about some semi-expensive self tanner options but this is the best I've found from the drugstore and my budget range. Rub on your skin just like lotion, make sure you rub well/evenly and it works like a charm. I'm kinda obsessed with the color too.


A sweet soul sent me this beautiful poncho from Forever21 and it's quickly become my favorite item this fall.

4|| Okay, okay..I've officially become that girl. I needed a show and Vampire Diaries was just sitting there..waiting to be watched. So I just did it, ya know. I binged. Confession time, I liked it..okay I loved it. Therefore, making it a favorite this week #colormeashamed

5|| I heard this song on the radio at work the other day and it just hit me at the right moment. This is such an issue I have with being my own worst enemy and this song is a sweet reminder to be kind to yourself.
