Friday Faves

By | November 2, 2018

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Did you have a good Halloween? What are you up to this weekend? I’m looking forward to taking the girls to see Nutcracker (even though the reviews are terrible), family pizza night, and celebrating Día de los Muertos. I’d love to hear what you have going on!

It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party. This is where I share some of my fave finds from the week, and always enjoy hearing about the things you’re loving, too. Please join in the fun and shout out one of your faves in the comments section!

Halloween fun:

Livi and p


Sally makeup

(Liv was Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas and P was princess Jasmine. My Hocus Pocus shirt is from Etsy!)

(I was Frida for girls’ night but on the actual holiday, time was in warp speed and after getting the girls ready, all I had time to for myself was put on a Halloween tee and jeans.)

Kyle and ej

(Look at lil EJ! I can’t.)

Halloween was such a blast this year. This is really the first year where I don’t feel like I have a *baby* which is equally tragic and thrilling. The girls and I were able to stay out late trick-or-treating with the fam, there were zero bottles or tired meltdowns, and it was just pure joy. We went to our standard spot in 49ers (we have some family who live there) and as usual, they went ALL OUT. The decor is so extra in the best way possible. My very favorite house was a Pirates of the Caribbean set up. I felt like I was in Disneyland. Check out their bar area!

Apparently they’re notorious for extreme Christmas decorations so we’ll be back for a stroll with hot cocoa in hand.

For trick-or-treating, it was my dad, stepmom, Maxie the Westie (who rode in her dog stroller in a magenta genie costume), Kyle, Meg, Everly, two of their friends and their little guy, Uncle E, and nana. It was a great time. <3

I’m really into the Hanging out and Relaxing Station on Spotify. I love it when I’m writing because I don’t know any of the songs, so I’m not singing in my brain. 😉 As the name indicates, it’s ideal chill music. 

Remember to vote next week!

Well, this was beautiful.

Fitness fashion + beauty:


My friends at CALIA sent me this amazing full-zip hybrid puffer jacket. It’s so lightweight and incredible warm! I love the construction of the jacket, too. It feels really durable and like it’s well-made. I know I’m going to wear it a lot this winter!

Picked up this pair of APL sneakers in the Victorian Red color. I love them with destroyed jeans, leggings and a sweater, and with my workout gear. They’re very comfortable and I like that the red is a pop of color without being *too much.*

New Beautycounter product alert! I just ordered this moisturizing duo and my dry wintery skin is feeling pretty stoked about it.
