Friday Favorites #16: Week of 6/20/14

Hey everyone! So, I have some good news to deliver to you all. Are you ready? It's really exciting… 

**clears throat ready to announce** Friday is here!! :))

Pardon my moment of goofiness, but come-on, I had you wondering for a second didn't I?? lol. This week has been quite wonderful and I've been anxiously awaiting today to share my favorite things! I think this is why I subconsciously cut out the chitter-chatter from this posts intro - whoops. I hope your week has been a great one as well and I can't wait to hear some of your Friday loves too!

--New Summer Bag
Yesterday Billy had text me that he had something he wanted to give me and when we met up I couldn't believe my eyes. He found this gorgeous handbag for me at a little boutique in the downtown area of our city and he said that when he saw it he instantly thought it screamed me. It was love at first sight. The color combination is fun and perfect for summer. There is also a long strap inside to make it into a satchel. The coolest part is that the designers name is Nicole (like me!). He did good!







--Maybelline Eyeliner
Until this year I was never a person to wear any liner on the top of my lids. Honestly, I was just nervous that I wouldn't be good at it and it wouldn't look right. I had no idea what I was missing! I love the way it totally makes your eyes pop. I don't wear it for my everyday natural look, but I do carry it in my makeup bag and pull it out when wanting a different look. I found myself using it fairly often this week! If you're in need of a good liner I suggest giving this one a try!



--Starbucks Refresher
These can be so addicting! They are a nice treat on a hot day, packed with a boost of energy. I would drink one everyday if I could, but my bank account wouldn't be a fan! My go to flavor is very berry. 



--VoxBox
On Sunday I received my first ever VoxBox from Influenster - #SurfsUpVoxBox! I was like a little kid opening the box. I could not wait to see what the goodies were inside! My excitement that was through the roof and by the next day I had already tried out 3 out of the four products. 

**Interested in the details of what I got? Check it out here.**



--Dinner & Puppies
Tuesday early evening I met a couple of friends at a local crepe place for dinner. I think this was the first time I had entered a restaurant with not a clue as to what I was going to end up ordering. I have had crepes before, although I have never had anything besides a dessert crepe. I ended up ordering a seasonal crepe filled with different cheeses and mixed greens. It was delicious! 



After we finished up our crepes we all headed on over to Kayla's parents house to visit and play with the puppies that they recently got. I could have watched them all night, such personalities they have! They are little bundles of energy, which made snapping photos a little difficult. By the end of our visit we had tired them out to the point where I was able to at least take a few adorable shots. 

Meet the pups:
• Golden Retriever- Bancroft 
• German Shepard- Otto




--Organizing Apps
While I was on the elliptical the other day I decided it was time to evaluate the apps I had on my phone. I knew there were some that I never used, but I didn't expect there would be enough to clear up a gigabyte worth of space! I guess this spring summer phone cleaning was well overdue!

  2. That bag is adorable! I love the bright colors, so much fun!
    I use a liquid black liner on my top lids and then just an old school pencil on my bottom. I have tried that brush kind, but I am to inept at getting it on! Haha, do you have tricks and tips? Maybe I just need a better brush!

    2. I haven't used it on the bottom before, I still use an old school pencil there too! lol. For the top though there are a few things that have helped me over time: 1) I try to make the brush somewhat flat and put the liner just on one side 2) I start from the outside and work in because if I start too thick I can make it thinner as I go making the inside not look to heavy 3) I try to do it lighty first 4) It is really important to hold your eye so your lid is smooth 5) the outside corner can be touched up while your eye is open to fill in spots you may have missed --- hope this maybe helps ladies!! I'm still not perfect with it, but the more I do it the easier it seems!
