Weekly Favorites

Happy Friday loves! I'm not sure how, but this 3 day work week felt incredibly long. Lately, I've been waking up on Thursday thinking it's Friday and let me just say, it really bums me out haha! As far as weekend plans go, tomorrow we will just be doing stuff around the house and doing a little more decorating. We also have SO many awesome restaurant options near our new house so we definitely want to go out to dinner and check some out! Sunday, I am going with my mom, MOH, and one of my best friends who just returned from Istanbul to see my wedding dress. So so excited! I had so much fun doing a "Weekly Favorites" post a few weeks ago so I definitely wanted to do one again. Linking up with Amanda from Meet at the Barre! Here goes...

Favorite Article--I am so excited that we finally have our own separate room for a home office so when I saw this article I just loved reading the tips for designing and decorating!

Favorite Blog Post--I love Chronicles of Frivolity and I especially love reading her bridal/wedding posts. This one gave some awesome beauty/skincare tips! Plus--how gorgeous was her wedding dress?!

Favorite Beauty Product--I have two things I'm LOVING at the moment. This primer is fabulous if you have dry skin and just love that dewy glow! It just looks gorgeous on the skin. Second product is this lipstick in the shade "Barbara." If you're like me and you like a neutral lip but nothing too nude, this has just the right amount of brown/rose undertones so it doesn't wash you out. It's not too brown though for everyday wear. 

Favorite Home Design--I stumbled upon Miss Mustard Seed's blog via Pinterest and how stinkin' adorable and shabby chic is this living/dining area? I'm obsessed.

Favorite Recipe--I have been back into the whole "macro counting" aka flexible dieting so I'm trying to eat meals that are higher in protein because I tend to carb it up! This meal is so yummy, healthy, and full of protein. It also seriously keeps you full!

Hope you guys enjoyed this post! Would love to hear your weekend plans in the comments below!

    1. YES! That used to be my stomping ground when I worked on that side of Fairfax! It's gorgeous and make sure you get a latte at Dolcezza! I'll have to email you about getting together now that we're on your side of town:)

  6. How exciting that you'll be seeing your wedding dress, I can only imagine how gorgeous it'll look on you! I love "favorites posts" because it always introduces me to something new. I love the tips for decorating an office space, which I've bookmarked because we're moving in mid-August and I'll have a separate office space as well , so I NEEED plenty of ideas! I also love the recipe you've shared, which I will definitely be making, it looks SO delicious! Thanks so much for sharing all these great and helpful finds, beautiful, and I hope you have the most amazing weekend ahead (I hope you find an awesome restaurant)!



  7. I've never tried macro counting, but I'm sure it would be better than drowning in carbs all day. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  8. Have a lovely weekend. Gemma x
