Happy Friday

a few of my favorite things

Happy Friday everyone! Did you all have a nice week? A nice Valentine’s Day? We stayed in and ate homemade pasta and lava cake. It came out really delicious, I can’t wait to share the recipe with you guys! I’d never made one before, and I have a feeling it is going to be one of those desserts I made on repeat now. Other than that it was a pretty quiet week, very rainy which meant staying in and watching movies and old television at night. With the Oscars coming up I’ve been inspired to watch some of the old winners, so we have Darkest Hour in the queue along with Bohemian Rhapsody. Does anyone have any other recommendations? I’ve been searching for a new television show to watch, and haven’t found anything I’m really excited about - we like quirky and funny, not too dark. Think Friends and Parks & Rec.

Anyways, here are some other things I’ve been enjoying this week -

I have the Rifle Paper Co x Jansport pouch pictured above and I’m obsessed. The pattern is so darling and it’s the perfect size to fit into your handbag for all of your beauty essentials, bandaids, etc.

I think the gown Kate Middleton wore to the BAFTA’s is my favorite yet

An article on Mary Kate and Ashley today. I loved them so much growing up, what about you? 

I love the scalloped edge of these tortoise earrings

Martha Stewart’s recipe for homemade bubble bath

I loved seeing Ashley Brooke’s pictures of behind the scenes at Kate Spade. The glitter nails make me so happy! 

This Corgi mug is darling, do you think the Queen might have one?

Some good advice on what to splurge on and what to save on

My old iPad case was literally falling apart, so after delaying the purchase for a while I finally bit the bullet and bought this dusty pink one. I love it! It’s so light and the color is beautiful. It’s also a good reminder of what a difference a small update to things we already own can make.

I love all of these glitter nail manicures!

Really helpful skincare Q&A from Grace
