Friday Favorites

My sporadic Friday Favorites are back… for this week at least!  I have a love/hate relationship with this post, which is why I no longer post them each Friday.  I often felt like I was having to wrack my brain for what to include in my post.  So I only plan on posting when I actually have something worthwhile to say… If it doesn't come easily on this post, it's probably not important.  So here are some things that I haven't been able to get enough of lately!

Messy Buns

This has been my hair every day this week.  I've just felt kind of yucky and unmotivated to the point that I've washed my hair every other day, left for work with it wet, and then threw it up into a messy bun after my 30 minute commute.  Luckily, it looks pretty decent.  After trying all kinds of fancy messy bun tutorials (like the one where you tie your hair into an actual knot, or the other one that involves a teasing comb and an entire pack of baby pins,) I've realized that keeping it simple is the easiest thing to do!

Mary Kay

I have purposely avoided Mary Kay products for the majority of my life.  Why?  I have no idea.  I remember being drug along to Mary Kay parties as a child with my friends' moms.  (My mom wouldn't have been caught dead at a Mary Kay party.  Apparently it wasn't an oily skin friendly brand back in the day.)  I plan on having a full review next week, but I received some Mary Kay goodies to review.  I was less than thrilled at the prospect, but now I've been converted.  I'm a Mary Kay fan, y'all!!  I don't want to reveal too much before the review, but I definitely have a new favorite mascara.  Stay tuned!

ASOS Leather Scallop Edge Shopper

I won this baby from a giveaway  done on my friend AJ's blog - The AJ Minute.  First of all, the photo does the bag no justice.  It is a beautifully structured bag with a buttery leather feel.  Those are two of my favorite things in the world.  

Carrying this bag makes me want to feel hot.  It is such a "boss b*tch" bag.  I feel like I need to wear all black, my sunglasses indoors, and sky high stilettos when I carry this bag.   Thanks again, AJ!

Mophie Phone Case

One of the coolest things about my first "big girl job" is that my company took over my phone bill.  I had an old iPhone 4 that was almost two years old and shorting out.  My boss loves to FaceTime, which wasn't possible because of the sound on my old phone, so I was given a new phone with a Mophie charging case on it!  It's super convenient if you're out exploring in a new city and your phone is dying, or even if your phone starts to die during a phone call, and you don't want to have a pesky charger cord smacking you in the face.

My Pet Bird

Her human parents were sent to Montana with the military, but this old bird (literally) wasn't having any of that.  So now we are roommates.  Isn't she fab?!

So there are my current obsessions... What are yours?
Happy Friday & have a great weekend!  Tomorrow you can expect an update on my 24 Before 24 List.



Disclaimer:  This is not a sponsored post.  All opinions are honest and my own.  I received free Mary Kay products in exchange for an honest review, which is to take place next week.  I won the Asos Leather bag on a blog giveaway.  Also, the only photo that I own is the photo of the bird.  I do not claim to own the other photos, and I hope that if you choose to use them somewhere, you will credit them back to their original source.  Thanks!
