slow down

{ mood: drained }
{ listening to: cloud grey playlist }

It's been summer in Nashville since mid-May at the very least. We've had sun, heat and humidity for the most part but this past week has been interrupted with dark clouds, loud thunder, high winds and pouring rain. At times when I get a chance to look up from my computer screen at work I am in awe of the ever changing weather.

I'm looking forward to the weekend as we actually have plans for once. I also hope to find some quiet time even if it is in the in between moments. The frenzy that my life path is currently on has been stressful and I need to take some very deep breaths and stop trying to predict what could go wrong in the future. Oh if only it were that easy to just let it all go.

friday favorites

Back when I used to blog more, I used to post my Friday Favorites weekly. Well, I tried to anyway. Alas, life has gotten in the way. Since I haven't posted a Friday Favorites in a really long time, I figured the time is now. These are my favorite posts ever by the way. And since I am a girl and I love to shop, I love seeing everyone's faves so I can see what exciting new to me things I could choose to try. So without further a do, here are my favorite things of 2016 so far. And by favorites, I totally mean OBSESSED. ;)

^^^this is an iRing. It is life changing. Don't let the name fool you. It can work on any smartphone or tablet. Most importantly, it's re-usable. Just run water over the side that sticks on your phone or tablet, wipe and stick! It's awesomesauce. I've had it on my phone for about 2-3 weeks and it is really useful when I don't want to take a bag but can't leave my phone. It's like I have two hands again. Ha.^^^

^^^The lip velvet trio by Doll 10 is incredible. i've tried all three colors (material girl, couture able and fashionista) and I love every single one. It's moisturizing and pigmented and goes on like a lip gloss. I don't even need a lip pencil. I LOVE THESE.^^^

^^^Oh look! Another beauty product! Do you see a pattern? ;) These tarte look sharp eyeliners come in the colors charcoal, brown and blue black. They're self-sharpening and glide on so easily. I end up avoiding eye pulling, which is kind of a good thing since I'm not getting any younger. :/^^^

^^^These were my first Doll 10 purchases. I bought the nude lip wardrobe from qvc that includes a lipstick and lip gloss in one. These made me fall in love with Doll 10 and is the reason I felt confident in getting the lip velvet trio. These are dabombdotcom.

^^^I got these urbanears wireless headphones via a Spotify coupon last Christmas and they are perfect for dancing! Ok, they're great headphones either way but because they're wire free they are perfect for working out.^^^

I've followed Starbucks on Instagram since I first joined back in 2011 and lately they've been promoting a new vanilla sweet cream cold brew. I chose to add extra cream because that's how I roll and oh my gosh. Amaze. Balls. LOVE.

And last but definitely not least, Snapchat. I've been on Snapchat since 2013 and I remember trying to get everyone and their mother to join. Even way back when it got bad press. It's kinda cool to see it exploding like it is. So here is a 10 second snap of myself that I uploaded to youtube just because. Oh and if you are so inclined, my snapchat name is deeliciouz. ;)

And thus concludes my first friday favorites of 2016.
