Finally Friday



The broken record in me is here to say how happy I am we've finally made it to Friday and the weekend, of course. I finished up most of my gift shopping on Cyber Monday earlier this week so I'm so happy to check that off the list!

Then it was on to decorating the house with outside lights, stockings, random decorations, and of course the Christmas tree being the biggest time-consumer. All was completed this week and luckily my tree is fake and pre-lit so that makes the process a bit easier.


My online shopping haul from Express (all items 50% off last week) arrived and everything fits perfectly which is a huge relief since I guessed my sizes. A friend of mine was raving about how comfortable the mid-rise jeans and leggings are and she wasn't kidding. I purchased two pairs (here and here) and won't be going back to regular fit. I also bought a couple of their silky zipfront tops which come in a variety of pretty colors, a portofino blouse for work, and the softest tunic sweater for any occasion. 


Did you happen to catch my guest post over at MakeupHER's blog about some Wedding Day Tips for soon-to-be brides? I also included a picture recap of my wedding to relive my big day and give inspiration for future brides out there.


Ok here I am talking about shopping again but I love that Ulta has OPI nail polishes on sale right now for 3 for $19 (plus you can apply this coupon to get $3.50 off a $10 purchase).



I made my way over to the Ulta store on Wednesday night and they were sold out of a lot of the colors but these are the three that caught my eye: Suzy and the 7 Dusseldorfs, Peace, Love & OPI, and In The Cable Car Pool Lane.


I'll leave you with a weird fact about my Lola. She has a fear of iPhone cameras ever since we got her as a puppy. Well not fear but she shuns them and will look away as soon as you pull out your phone to take a photo. BUT as soon as I bring out my big girl camera, she will sit still and pose as if she's a Victoria's Secret model. She's has some work to do in the fashion model department and maybe some braces to boot (kidding) but I love that she'll let me take photos with one of my cameras!


Linking up with my fellow Floridian blogger, Amanda from Meet At The Barre.

Happy weekend everyone!

  18. Hahahahah Lola!!! She wants the fancy camera's attention. None of that peasant iphone stuff! Love your Express haul!!! You got a lot of stuff. I hate low rise jeans. They are so uncomfortable and I feel like I am constantly pulling them up. It has been awhile since I have had Express ones. I didn't get to hit them up on Black Friday like I wanted to. We ran out of time. Imagine that?

  20. LOLOL @ Lola's camera preferences. They know things, I swear. They're smart.

    That's a great sale on OPI.

  21. Love your tree! Your Express haul looks great! So fun that Lola likes your big camera and not your iPhone camera! :)

  22. All of your Essie nail polish colors look so pretty! I ordered a few on Black Friday and I can't wait to try them out! That's too funny that Lola doesn't like an iPhone camera but she'll pose for your big camera! She must know that she's that important ;)
