Friday Favorites!

So its been a couple of months, and instead of Fashion Friday I’m doing a “Friday Favorites”. If you’ve never seen one of these before, I just talk about my favorite things lately to encourage y’all to branch out and try new things. Why? Because its life, and we need a little refreshing from time to time. Also, I don’t believe in posting about PH all the time. Yes, this is a blog revolving around a rare disease, but other parts of our life are just as important. “Don’t tell me you’re one of those people who becomes their disease.” (The Fault in Our Stars) I have an actual list I’m going to stick to so that every one of these posts will at least have the appearance of being organized. Each post, I will mention my favorite (at the time) music, makeup, book, clothing, TV show, something to do, nail polish, movie, drink and household item. Here we gooo.

The Music.

I’m always discovering new bands, and rediscovering my classics. When I tell people music is important to me, I’m extremely serious about that…hints why I do a song of the week. Music is what feeling sounds like. Right now, I feel Night Beds one hundred percent. Favorite song? 22 and Ramona. Their sound is so emotional, and moving. There are no other words.

The Makeup.

Lately, makeup has currently been eating my face away. Every morning I wake up I find a new little red dot tucked in the corner or crease of another part of my face. Good grief. However, MAC foundation has saved my life! Its been my absolute favorite (I can’t tell you which kind because its like I got a personal fit, so go find your match.) What I can say is it does cover and matify your face. Also, Too Faced Primed and Poreless powder (can be found at Ulta) has been so fantastic as well for covering up those little ridiculous blemishes.

The Book.

As much as I talk about The Fault in Our Stars, I don’t give enough credit towards Looking For Alaska my other favorite by the inevitable John Green. Its dark and twisty in the most perfect of ways, and I loved this book incredibly much. John Green is beyond talented. So, as much attention as TFIOS is getting, don’t forget to shine some light on Look For Alaska.

The Clothing.

Oh, Jeez. Honestly, I’m obsessed with gold jewelry and vintage lazy finds. I love finding REAL plaid, not this shit at old navy that’s stiff and pink. I love finding the plaid that is soft, worn down, vintage, over-sized and the sleeves are rolled. I’m also obsessed with simple gold jewelry to accent this lazy look. It’s like taking a loud, boyish fashion yet giving it a delicate womanly touch. Try it, which might require a Goodwill run.

The TV Show.

I am so obsessed with Sex and The City right now. I used to watch this all through high school, and at the time it was weird but cool. Now its hysterical in ways I thought I would never imagine, and it’s just always going to be that all time girl show. Plus, I love the writing in it, for obvious reasons. Sorry loves, I’m just really in touch with my chick flick side lately.

Something To Do.

With the same old partying, shops, bars, movie theater’s…things just get tiring really fast. However, I never get tired of bowling. Honestly, it seems like the fun is overlooked. Everytime we go we all have so much fun, whether we are drinking or not. Not everyone is from the same small old town as me, but next time you get the chance, take a date, friends, family and go bowling. A little bit of competition, beer, and a whole lot of laughing.

The Nail Polish.

When I first saw this color I had flashbacks to my first grade years. However, I think Essie did a great job of turning it into not only a fun, but chic color. I’m not quite ready for light “summer” nails, and this bright yet overpowering color is the perfect balance. Aruba Blue by Essie.

The Movie.

This has been a favorite since high school, and has a special place in my heart. Dan in Real Life is that perfect little love story, that’s screwed up in its own ways to make you appreciate it even more. The characters, setting, dialogue, and music have always been fantastic. It’s just one of those “feel good” films to uplift your spirits in the weirdest of ways, and when has Steve Carrell ever been not funny? Valentine favorite this year y’all, even for the singles.

The Drink.

I know I’m a Texan, but beer will never be my thing. Three words y’all. Cherry Vodka Sour.

Household Item.

Recently, my obsession with candles has taken a new turn. I have them everywhere (usually tea lights) because I love the look in my room. Also, I’m a very picky candle-scent person. Usually I have pumpkin candles, evergreen tree candles, and that’s it. I hate the flower ones, the fruit ones, the cookie ones…just no. They get my stomach going, and before I know it I’m nauseous. I like something clean, or relaxed smelling….and y’all I have found the most perfect candle scent ever. Might I add it’s not seasonal, so it’ll be out all year. Its called Mahogany Teakwood… also known as Sexy Man. This scent is so masculine (not too much), and leaves my room smelling like a guy just walked out. That sounds tacky, but I really don’t care. This to me is such a romantic scent, and why not get it for yourself around this time of year? Helllloooo Ladies. Sexy candle alert! Buy it.

Sorry this post is up late loves! Branch out, and now you have some new things (hopefully) to think about trying! Enjoy your weekend y’all with not too many Cherry Vodka Sours. πŸ˜‰

  1. I’m a fan of Too Faced too, I just love their make up palettes.

    I just purchased their “Chocolate Bar Eye Palette.” Have you tried it yet? It smells like chocolate, and it has nice neutrals for an “everyday” look but it has more intense colours to do a smokey eye. I haven’t worn it many times yet because I’ve been too depressed/tired but I think that is changing πŸ™‚
