Friday Favorites | January 22nd

Happy Friday, y’all and welcome to my second installment of Friday Favorites. This week I’m linking up with Heather and Amanda. For those who may be new, Friday favorites is a chance for me to share some of my favorite things from the week. So, grab your coffee (or drink of choice) and catch-up with me.

Grape Kombucha: my drink of choice at the moment

Here goes it:

Quote of the week: “The time is always right to do what is right.” – MLK. Jr.


Found this on Instagram (from @girlwithnojob courtesy of @ponder) and had to tag my girl Leslie because it’s so her.


My friend Christina is seriously hilarious and watching her little doll face Cora sing along to Adele’s Hello with her was seriously the cutest thing.



I met this absolutely insanely beautiful girl named Kara this week who’s eyebrows were as the kids say ‘on fleek’. (Funny because I always associate great eyebrows with this Cara). I asked her what she did to make them look so great and she mentioned to me that she uses this to fill them in. I wouldn’t have thunk it but her eyebrows were fire so I definitely want to try.

This pallet. GORGEOUS. Amiright?



Earlier this week Heather from LIL released her 2016 winter workout playlist. I used it during a run this week and it helped me power through. You can give it a listen here.

Tomorrow I am going to Trap Karaoke. Yup, TRAP karaoke. Been brushing up on my inaudible rap lyrics all week. #VersaceVersace #TrapQueen


I went to this awesome SF bar last night in the Mission called Trick Dog. The highlight was definitely the menu which lists cocktails in a top secret dossier-style folder. And I definitely enjoyed sippin’ on a drink named Biggie and Tupac.


The Superbowl is coming to town. And if you’re coming to SF, you need these tips from Cassie. Most important rule: Don’t call it “San Fran.”

Those who may be bracing themselves for Snowmaggedon, check out Popsugar’s list of the best winter boots this season. Because…

actually, it’s already here. #GoT

I don’t know that I have the patience to label all my meals like this, but in my mind, I am this organized / type A.

This made me laugh out loud. For those of you who don’t like burpees…

And earlier this week I shared some of my favorite must-have workout essentials. Hope you find something to add to your arsenal.


This weekend I have some friends who will be here from out of town and we have a lot of catching up and karaoke-ing to do. Have a great weekend friends!

Your turn: What’s your favorite thing that you saw, heard or shared this week? What are your plans for the weekend?
