F R I Y A Y {FAVORITES}

Happy Friyay friends! I cannot believe how seriously cold it has been here in Kansas City this past week. We were in the 20’s last night and still currently this morning – not okay with me for it being this early in the season. Speaking of things happening early in the season, did y’all see my post on my home holiday decor I shared this week? If not, definitely be sure to check it out as a lot of the items I linked are on sale this weekend. Erick, Brantley, Brinkley and I are taking family photo’s this weekend for our holiday card, which is always an adventure. I will have a post up soon sharing our holiday cards, my favorite websites to order them from and a pretty fab  discount code for you guys too so stay tuned. In the meantime, here is this weeks round up of Friyay Favorites!

{2017} Home Holiday Decor

I promise i’m not crazy y’all, I just really really love Christmas. Scratch that, I really really love the entire holiday season. From October 1st through January 1st each year I soak up all the holiday cheer I can get. My fall and Halloween decor usually go up before October 1st and my Christmas decor is in the works the first week of November. For everyone out there saying, “what’s the rush!? Can’t you just enjoy each holiday before moving on and celebrating the next.” To you folks I  say, i’m not rushing anything – quite the opposite actually.

For me, this season goes by so very quickly and with each passing year it seems to just go even faster than the year before. The holiday season is truly my favorite time of the year and so with that I want to enjoy it  for as long as I possibly can. From the festive decor to the tree lines and falling leaves on the ground with their beautiful changing colors. Pumpkin spice latte’s, cozy knits, boot and booties, bonfires, and cider everything. To the first snow fall, pretty Christmas lights, cozy throw blankets, holiday movies, and festive gatherings with friends and family. Basically the holiday season, for me, is the season of nostalgia and comfort. Rule of life people: if something makes you happy and doesn’t hurt anyone else in the process (like putting up holiday decorations for instance 😉 )how dare we feel the need to apologize for it.

Quilted Vest + Light Weight Knit Top

One of my favorite pieces to pull out of my closet when fall arrives each year is my assortment of quilted vest’s. I think I have about 10 quilted vest’s ranging in color to fun prints like stripes. I love how versatile they are, you can throw one over a casual outfit for Saturday errands or dress it up a bit like I did here. this neutral quilted vest from Old Navy is so cute and i love that it’s light weight but yet still kept me nice and warm on our first crisp fall day here in Kansas City.

Must Have Mask Monday + My Round Up of Current Favorite Beauty Products

Like most women I have become obsessed with skin care, really just self-care in general, since being in my mid twenties. In my late teen years and even my early twenties I think I pretended to care and thought I was doing ‘good enough’ when it came to taking care of my skin. Ohhh boy, was I so very wrong about this. It was probably age 23 that my skin started showing the first signs of aging as in ‘you’re not 13 anymore and can’t just go to bed with out washing your face and everything be okay’. It was age 24 and the year I got engaged that I actually made the commitment to start doing something about it. Basic things like drinking plenty of water, using SPF on the daily, and washing your face every night before bed are all very important, yes. Though in my personal opinion finding the right products that are proven with reviews and stand the test of being great quality is right up at the top of the list. With that being said, I wanted to share some of my favorite skin care products along with hair care products that I’ve been using within the last few months and even some of them for half my life.
