Friday Favorites

TGIF friends... boy this has been a long week! Maybe it's because I know that next week is Thanksgiving and that I have a 3-day work week but this week has been dragging. Even though I am not loving how long it took for this week to end, here are a couple things I am loving....

It has been freezing here in the 518, so cold that I've officially taken out my winter coat and I had to pre-heat my car because it's been covered in frost when I leave for work. Last Christmas I got a heated mattress pad for my bed and it has been getting plenty of use this week. I set it for 2 hours and when I get into my bed, it's already toasty warm. Definitely one of the best products I own and I highly recommend it.

Catching Fire
I am so excited to see the new Hunger Games movie, Catching Fire was my favorite book in the series. Last night I went to one of my girlfriends houses with a bunch of friends to watch the first movie in preparation to see the second movie next Tuesday. As mentioned previously I have a little crush on Jennifer Lawrence so I'm excited to see her kick some butt.

I've had my eye on this pretty cream sweatshirt for some time now but I am excited to say it has finally gone on sale! Once my new paychecks start coming in this will be one of the first things I purchase. I love the embroidery design on it, definitely makes this sweatshirt much dressier!

I've been loving all the friends and family sales that have been happening online and trust me, I have been taking full advantage of them. Unfortunately I don't have a lot of these amazing stores like Nordstrom and Bloomingdales in my area to browse through, however I do have a Macys. Each year Macy's has a Friends and Family event where you can take 25% off of everything in the store including brands like Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Ralph Lauren and Northface. I am definitely looking forward to picking up some gifts for my mom at a discount and scoring some cashmere sweaters and accessories for myself!

I've been in a glitter sort of mood with the holidays coming up which is why I have been loving this new collection by Essie. These sparkling polishes would be great top coats for fun holiday nails. They have so many fun patterns and colors to choose from that I can't make up my mind!

What are you currently loving?
Do you have anything fun planned for the weekend?


  1. I am so excited to see Hunger Games too! And I love that tulip sweatshirt!

  3. I love my heated mattress pad too! It is the best thing ever!! That and hot chocolate are great for this weather!

  4. I've been wanting a heated mattress pad for awhile! I don't think it would go over well, unfortunately, because my husband is always hot, so I make do with a heating pad to warm up my side of the bed. Have a great weekend!

  5. I am such a nail polish addict! I have a feeling I am going to be needing that entire Essie collection.

    I cannot wait to hear how the movie is! I don't usually go to the movies so I may just have to wait until it comes out on video! But it was my favorite book!


  6. There are so many things I love here! The heated mattress pad sounds too great! I live in MN, so things can get pretty cold here. I would love to have one like that.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. The mattress pad is a great idea & really looking forward to seeing Catching Fire soon :)

  8. Those Essie polishes are GORGEOUS! I walked past an Essie polish sale today and didn't buy anything, proud of my self control, but still wishing I'd bought some pretty new colors :) Also, that heated mattress pad sounds amazing! I'm always cold so I definitely need one of those.


  9. Ohhh that heated mattress pad looks lovely. I am always cold, especially in bed.


  10. I cant wait to see Catching Fire! I am so excited for it. I am such an Essie fan. I will have to check out this new line of colors. I usually am not a glitter girl but these look fun for the holidays.

  11. Heated mattress pad...ummm, yes please, I would use that like every night! I love the Essie nail polish colors!
