Friday Favorites

Lust List Image

1.|| Starbucks has been pushing a fun little add-in lately, and they hooked, line and sunk me with it. Venti White Mocha + 2 pumps of Raspberry = LOVE. It’s definitely a sweeter drink, so if you’re not a fan of sweet drinks (think peppermint mocha, caramel brulee latte, white chocolate mochas) then don’t order this. If you’re like me, and your Starbucks is also your dessert for the day, you’re going to be smitten.

2.|| Jamie over at Kreyv posted about belted magazines, and I’m loving the idea! Check out her post for inspiration. Her blog is one of my favorites, so go check it out even if you think belted magazines sound cray-cray.

3.|| I am totally going to (attempt to) make this DIY laptop table.

4.|| I have loved Ellen Page since Juno, but never as much as I did when watching her give this incredible speech.

5.|| Check out this video about texting and driving and #redthumbreminder…This is a habit I had to break when I had my daughter, and I won’t lie, there are times when I hear my phone ding and get tempted. It’s just not worth it.

6.|| I love this quote, and I think we should all remember this more often. Be nice, and be yourself. If they don’t like you, then it’s their loss.

7.|| I bought Cam these darling little gladiators at Target, and have received a thousand and one compliments on them They’re priced really well, and she thinks they’re comfy. Target for the win!

8.|| This video of a dad laughing at students slipping on ice had me in tears with laughter.

9.|| This amazing tutorial for making a pendant light has me dreaming of goodwill shopping and DIY’ing.

10.|| I have been battling dry, winter skin with a coffee scrub every other shower, and it’s made my skin feel amazing. My sister makes it for me (because she’s amazing, and I love her!!), but all it contains is 1 part coconut oil, 1/2 parts brown sugar, and 1/2 parts coffee grounds. (For example: 1 cup coconut oil, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cups coffee grounds) You can also add extras like cinnamon, peppermint oil, jojoba or vitamin e oil, etc. to spice up your scrub. I always use this prior to self tanning. Do you guys use any at-home scrubs? Leave me recipes below if you do!

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

  1. That scrub sounds awesome! I am about to run out of a coconut oil, vanilla scrub I got for Christmas from Marshalls. I am totally making yours! I love home made beauty products. I’ve done coconut oil & sugar before but never added coffee grounds.

  2. Saw that video of the dad and it was too funny!! Such a true quote – it’s hard to get to that place though!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  3. That Starbucks drink sounds delish! Happy Friday!

  4. ohh i love Star bucks !!! would you like to follow each other on Blolglovin :) xx

  5. I loved Ellen Page’s speech too — it made me tear up a little. I’ve been on the hunt for a great body scrub, and I love a good DIY… guess what I’ll be doing this weekend! Happy Friday!

  6. I’ve of course heard the buzz about Ellen’s speech but hadn’t gotten he chance to watch it. Thanks for sharing. Such beautiful words!
    Dakota and I watched the video of the dad taping the falling students twice. SO FUNNY. I almost felt bad laughing so hard. ;)

  7. I felt so bad watching that movie and laughing along with him…..but it is so funny….such guy humor right? Only a man would think to video that. I love those belted magazines I would have never have thought but they look super cool. Have a great weekend girl!
