FRIDAY FAVORITES

Tough week, so I thought I'd start off this post with a picture of me looking WAY happier than I am right now...

Ah. That's better. GOD, I wish my hair were still that long. I also need to find those pants...

It turns out a week on the couch doesn't come without its upsides. I've had an abundant amount of time to read and watch various mediums, online shop, and do a variety of other things while I probably should've been sleeping or relaxing. So I thought it'd be fun to share my favorite things from the week...

This duet of two of my most favorite female vocalists of all time - Jennifer Hudson and Ariana Grande - made sitting through the whole 3 hours of Hairspray Live! totally worth it.

Speaking of Ariana - here are nine times she refused to wear a coat correctly. I also have a weird obsession with my shoulders and can TOTALLY relate...

This cute Tone It Up feature on Hallmark's Home & Family.

All of Jennifer Close's books. I read The Smart One (a quick and funny read); re-read Girls In White Dresses (because I have a horrible memory for books and knew I'd enjoyed it the first time... a must read if you're a 20- or 30-something female living in NYC) and am currently in the middle of The Hopefuls.

Any fellow A.V. Club fans here? I love reading their TV reviews, this week specifically: The Affair; This Is Us (I love the show but in this case enjoyed A.V.'s recap more than the actual episode); and of course, their sum of Hairspray Live.

I ordered this Anti-Aging Armour to pair with my favorite moisturizer. I have loved every single thing I've bought from this brand!

These sweet Kendra Scott earrings from a dear friend. Little did she know I've long been wanting a pair to go with my favorite necklace!

My dad scooped up a few treats at Lulu for when I'm back on my feet: this insanely soft tee, this 2-in-1 tank and this sleek 1/2 zip. He's the best. 

Currently in my J.Crew cart: this sweatshirt. And if we were still going to Florida in a few weeks, I'd scoop up this bow swimsuit in a freakin' heartbeat.

My favorite booties are on sale! Counting down the days 'til I can wear these again...

Have a wonderful weekend. 

Psst: linking up with Heather to share these favs.
