Friday Favorites!

You made it ladies! It's finally Friday! I am actually working this weekend so I can have July 4th weekend off to go to St. Louis to see my family. Go Cards!! I've yet to visit the new Ballpark Village outside the stadium, so it's on our list to see next weekend! Plus, it will be nice to spend some actual down time with my parents since the wedding is over now. Here are my favorite things from this week!
 
I added some new things to my shop this week, and I think they are my new favorite things there! I wanted to create something for those who aren't a fan of the mason jar trend, and I am just in love with party accessories and bar cart items right now. Not to mention, gold has become one of my new favorite colors. If you are in the market for these, visit my shop here! ---> Made In The Shade Shop

Oh. My. Word. This stuff is amazing. I have wondered by it several times in the grocery store and thought that it looked like it tasted wonderful. But I never bought it until now. And I never should have, because I'm afraid I won't be able to stop eating it now. It makes me want to want to buy one in every flavor. YUM!!!
My favorite makeup staple this week is this Shimmering Sands eyeshadow from Cover Girl. This is one of my most simple favorite makeup items that I have been using for years, and for some reason have used it almost every day this week. Am I the only one who doesn't ever use the little brushes they provide you? I'd rather just have extra eye shadow in that little compartment. These colors are great for doing classic looks, and the price is right!
I found a similar idea on pinterest like this, but decided to get my husband a little surprise. He is always the best at surprises. Not that I'm not, I'm just not as spontaneous in nature as he is. He loves Blue Moon, so I got this as a little pick me up before we work all weekend. I may just have to steal one too :)
Lastly, we still haven't forgotten about our memory jar! We started it at the beginning of the year and are still putting happy memories in it. Some weeks we are better at remembering to use it than others, but I think we'll have some great things to read through at the end of the year! I have started putting the date on the papers that I include. It's so hard not to open it and peek at what they all say! It really makes me appreciate the little things that happen in our day to day lives!

Happy weekend girlies! See you on Monday!

  19. I am so loving gold right now too, it's funny how it just came back in semi recently and is now all over the place- but I can't get enough of it! That gelato looks delish!

  20. First of all, I love your new sidebar and button photos from your anniversary session - so cute! Anyways, I've become a huge fan of gold as of late, too, and all your accessories are adorable. I bet your husband will really love his surprise! I'm jealous that you started a memory jar - we meant to do that this year, too, but with moving three times, it kind of fell on the back burner. Hopefully next year. Have a great weekend!

  21. I love your memory jar! Jared's anniversary gift to me included lots of little memories from allllll the years we've been together in a box, which was really cute. I think I want to start doing yearly ones now though, such a fun idea! :)

  32. A memory jar is such a fun idea, you can go back and read them if you're ever having a bad day! Also St. Louis sounds fun, I heard they have a great zoo there.
