Friday Favorites

I've been eating soup, soup, and leftover soup this week, and not because I have to, but because I love it.  I am definitely a soup lover, fall, winter, spring, AND summer, I love soup.  All kinds.  This week included homemade Taco and Potato Soup and I already have plans for tomato.  Mmm mmm good.  Apart from those, these are some of my favorites from my Pinterest boards Scrumptious and Delicious and Best Recipes

Yummy Potato Soup!

I love trying new soups, I really need to start trying the recipes for soups like the ones in these pictures! 

What's your favorite soup? Are you a year-round soup eater like me or do you reserve it for cold cloudy days?!

Feelin' a bit like Audrey

Channeling Audrey Hepburn is always a good idea, and that's just what I did today. Loving my outfit and soooo comfortable, J. Crew seriously makes THE most comfortable dress pants.  And these are such a great twist on the usual black dress pant which I refuse to own. I can't even tell you the last time I wore a "regular" pair of dress pants in any color or khakis.  Skinny leg, cropped, and classic is def the way to go.  Classic black thin knit turtleneck on top, so obvi my fav part of the outfit was the pants/belt and gorgeous winter white coat.  And all the gold glitter obviously.

Style Sunday

I guess you could say I'm a little late since this outfit is from Christmas, but it's just so great!  I absolutely love plaid and the style of these skirts from J. Crew are perfection, paper bag-esque waist and...POCKETS.  Perfect. 

 I ended up wearing the boots because of the weather but these gold sparkling smoking slippers from Gap are perfection, I FINALLY found some in my size and they were on sale!

Classic Stripes

I'm a sucker for stripes, any way I can get them.  I love these shirts, skirts, dresses, and accessories, you seriously can't get any cuter!  You can find great in literally all of your favorite stores in a variety of patterns and colors.  Obviously I'm a fan of navy but it's just so classic!  I'm dying for those fabulous Kate Spade shoes and mug, and bags from Stella & Dot and Brooks Beothers! 


Which of the items are you loving?  What's your favorite striped item in your closet?

(Belated) Birthday Style

Sooo yesterday was my birthday.  The big 2-4!  It was great...apart from the fact that Jason couldn't be here to celebrate with me of course.  But my kids sang happy birthday to me and I got a delicious dinner made by mom. (Desert to come later.)  And since it was finally my birthday I finally got to wear my monogrammed vest birthday present from Crystal Faye from Jason, yay!

Moisture Mecca

Can I just start with, tomorrow's my birthday! The big 24! Yay! 

Now back to your regular programming.

I recently did a post on fighting winter skin but I didn't mention a daily face moisturizer I use in my beauty routine, mostly because I was looking for a new one!  And I found it!  Went shopping with my mom the other day and went to Ulta on a mission.  I looked at all the brands, ones I knew, ones I didn't, and ended up with one of my favorite brands, bareMinerals!  There were a couple I was looking at, both called Purely Nourishing Cream but one for normal to dry skin and in a pump bottle, the other for dry skin and in a jar.  Obviously the jar cream would be thicker, the pump a bit lighter but I tried them both and the jar won out! (Also they were the same price and size but you can get EVERY bit of cream out of the jar!)  I've been using it for 2 days and I absolutely LOVE it, it's perfect.  It's not too heavy, soaks in perfectly and DOES NOT leave you feeling or looking greasy.  Like I said, perfect. 

Love the packaging! 

The naturally luminous part, what a great perk! 

Literally, this changes everything. 

You can just see the thick, creamy, silky, smoothness of the cream.  My skin is calling for it!  Is yours? 

What's your favorite moisturizer?

Monday Funday

So, I was feeling a little catty today.  But that's alright.  My mom always told me I could be whatever I wanted to be.  Today I chose cat and went out with my mom for the day!  Being teachers and having days off, best ever.

In case you haven't been to Old Navy lately, they have these adorable glass bottles of Coca-Cola products.  So obviously my mom and I got ourselves some Diet Coke. Yum.  And seriously, how FUN are these incredibly cute little bottles?!  I can hardly contain myself. 

Feelin' so Taylor Swift with my red lips and Diet Coke.
