Friday Favorites #23: Week of 3/27/15

Happy Friday-yay! I hope you all have had a wonderful week and are excited for the weekend ahead! Just a little while longer and you're there. But I have an idea of how we can make that time go by faster. What is it you ask? Sharing our favorites from the week to take our minds off the hours that separate us from the weekend! Alright, I know...that was cheesy, but it's Friday, so I'm gonna say it's acceptable. :)

DIY Plate:
My work has this program called "Pay It Forward" where we recognize those in our community who give selflessly of themselves by honoring them with an award and a free hour massage to take some time for themselves. I was trying to brainstorm some fun and unique ways to create an award to go with the massage certificate when I came across the giving plate on Pinterest. I have seen different "sharpie" creations for quite some time, but I had never given one a try. I couldn't believe how easy it was! 


Dresses & Tights:
Have been my go to this week. The temperatures have dipped back down some here, but not enough to have to break out the winter gear again. Although to tell you the truth experiencing lower temperatures or not I have always enjoyed pairing dresses with tights! 


Thinking Out Loud, By: Ed Sheeran:
This song should of shown up on a Friday favorites post a longggg time ago and probably multiple times at that. I love the song in generally and the dancer in me is completely obsessed with the music video.


A&W Root Beet:
I decided to drive thru A&W earlier this week because it is one of those food places that I rarely have and it sounded good to switch things up. I also ordered their signature root beer for my beverage and it made me wish I had it more often - it has such great flavor!

Lush Bath Bomb:
Over the weekend my friend Kayla gave me a surprise that she had had for me. My first lush bath bomb! We had been talking a couple weeks prior and it had come up in conversation that I had never used one before, but was always intrigued by them. She got me the cutest little caterpillar! I used half of the little guy last night and just wow. It smelled absolutely incredible and left my skin feeling so soft!


This Quote:
Came up on my quote app this week and it was just a perfect reminder that life is all about perspective. Our lives get busy and it can become easy to lose sight one what really matters. We get caught up in the things happening around us and forget to realize that we hold the power of how things affect us. Or at least I know I do at times and I'm always thankful for a nice reality check reminder. 


Have you ever made a DIY with sharpies? 
Do you use lush bath bombs? If so, which are your favorites?
What favorites do you have this week?

  3. The root beer at A&W is the best! It's much better than the kind they sell in the store. I wish I had some now. I also love the song Thinking out Loud..such a beautiful song and Ed has such a great voice! I love your idea of the giving plate..such a great way to give back. Have a great weekend!

  6. I am loving that quote, that's for sure. Adding that to my Friday Favorites today! And I experienced my first Lush store in Dallas a few weeks ago--that store is "the bomb" (get it? bath bomb?...). The caterpillar is too cute. You've making me want to order a bath bomb from Lush now as well. Cheers to the weekend!
