Friday Favorites (Week of August 27th)

Thank goodness it's finally Friday!

This week sure flew by! But of course, there was enough time to round up a few favorites of mine from the past few days and now is the perfect time to share with y'all. So before I kick off the weekend, I want to show you some finds that made this week more inspirational and happy, and I hope they are a great start to your weekend! 

Favorite Notebook: Marble Journal with Gold Foil

This is one of my new notebooks for this semester. I love the marble print and the petite size, so I couldn’t resist buying it when I saw it. I’ve already taken so many notes in it for my classes! 

Where To Buy: Target

Favorite Book: "The Light Within Me" by Ainsley Earhardt

I just finished reading this and I now consider Ainsley as a role model of mine. We have a lot in common, and her strong faith in Jesus is what makes her story so inspiring. I highly recommend reading this! 

Favorite Shoes: Hot Pink Open-Toe Block Heel Mules

Mules are trending big time right now. I'm all for these hot pink block heels, they're so chic and adorable! It’s perfect for the remaining weeks of summer, especially for any Labor Day parties this weekend! 

Where To Buy: Gap

Favorite Art Exhibit: “Infinity Mirrors”

A few weeks ago, me and girlfriends from work went to the “Infinity Mirrors” exhibit by Yayoi Kusama at the Cleveland Museum of Art. It was so amazing. What’s even more amazing is that it took the artist about 70-80 years to create! How crazy?! If you want to check it out and get that cool reflecting mirror selfie with all the lights like the one above, the exhibit is running till September 30. So book your ticket ahead of time and go before it’s too late! 

Favorite Song: "Everybody's Lonely" by Jukebox the Ghost

It’s funny because the meaning of this song sounds kind of depressing if you listen to the lyrics carefully. But it’s so upbeat and catchy that it puts me in a good mood. Ironic, isn’t it?

Friday Favorites (Week of September 4th)

Thank goodness it's finally Friday!

Favorite Saying: "What if we said, 'She is beautiful, but so am I," instead of, "She is beautiful and how do I measure up that?"

How nice would it be if we all repeated this to ourselves on a daily basis? It's time we use this as a reminder that we are all beautiful and that beauty does not require meeting specific standards!

Pumpkins are back in season and fresher than ever. This pumpkin flavored French toast looks so delicious and fulfilling, I can already imagine waking up and making a fresh batch for breakfast. Get the full recipe right here!

Favorite Outfit

Look how funky and retro this outfit is, I would totally wear this! I love the color combination especially. This is something I could imagine seeing at New York Fashion Week, where I really wish I was at right now instead of working on homework for classes!

Favorite Wedding Photo

Dancing in the Woods.jpg

Celebrating a life-long marriage by dancing in a field of weeds, could this not be any more romantic? Although I suppose adding some more colorful flowers would add a nice touch. 

Favorite Vlogger: Dani Austin

Not to sound like a creepy fangirl, but I really want to be her best friend! She's so adorable and has such a great taste in style. I'm determined to buy that Free People striped sweater once it goes on sale! Not only does she post great videos based on fashion and beauty but also focuses on building self-confidence, dealing with anxiety, and trusting God which I love and believe we need more people like her. Plus, she just got engaged and I could not be more happy for her!
