Happy Friday everyone! This week has been a busy week filled with work, home projects, Christmas decor shopping, staying warm in this much unwanted early winter that Mother Nature decided to give us in MI, and a lot of other fun things. Luckily we have been able to get a couple projects done during this work week, but after a long day of working inside the house I usually tend to want to get out, so progress is going slower than desired. Everyone keeps telling us that Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither is a house, so instead of getting anxious and stressed over all of the projects that we have to or want to do, I’m trying to stay positive and appreciate all of the projects that we have done so far and plan to do very soon! Early next week I have some fun projects to show you all, including some DIY projects that you can do to spruce up some old furniture, but for today I’ll be showing you some of this weeks favorites. Let me know what you think in the comments section below!
I absolutely love this room! Between the white, grays and dark brown accents, I'm absolutely googly eyed over this! Also, check out that chandelier! This will definitely be an inspiration for one our rooms in our house!
Favorite Christmas Chalkboard
source (Lilacs & Longhorns)
Since we don't currently have a TV hung over our mantel (because we are building an add-on to the mantel before we hang the TV), I wanted to add something festive on the mantel for the holidays. I found this chalkboard idea and love it!
Favorite Coffee Table (Restoration Hardware Square Balustrade Coffee Table)
I have been in love with this coffee table for months, but the price tag of $1200 doesn't coincide with our budget. Luckily enough, I've been able to get free design plans and built up enough courage to build my own next weekend (of course with the help of Paul by my side). Guys, I'm so excited, you have no idea!!
Favorite New Beauty Item: Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot
I have wanted to try out some of Benefit's boxed blushes for awhile, so when I saw this blush palette that came with six of their statement boxed blushes I had to have it! The color payoff of many of these blushes is great! My favorite shade so far is Bella Bamba which unfortunately is a discontinued shade in their boxed blush collection. I used $9.00 of my Ulta Rewards Dollars when I bought it, so I ended up getting this for $27.00 which is an incredible deal seeing as ONE of their blushes usually cost $28.00. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who is in need of new blushes, or is like me and likes trying new products all the time!
Favorite Song/ Music Video: Blank Space by Taylor Swift
In the last couple of years, I haven't been as fond of Taylor Swift songs, but I have to admit, I LOVE here new song Blank Space and the music video for it. She has totally redeemed herself in my eyes. I have been listening to it non-stop this past week. My favorite line in the song, "cause darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream". Also the house and estate in the video is absolutely gorgeous, I mean check out those bushes!!
Well that's it for this week's Friday Favorites! I hope you all have a wonderful and safe weekend!
