So I guess I spoke too soon last Friday. I said I'd be back to a "normal" blogging schedule this week, but we still had work visitors in town until yesterday evening, which meant I was still just as busy this week. This left very little time for blogging.
However, I just can't miss Friday Faves two weeks in a row. That would be a tragedy.
Favorite Funny / Truth
This picture doesn't really do them justice, but I'm loving Old Navy's Wide-Leg Trouser Jeans in Rinse for only $34.50. I am obsessed with wide leg jeans because I feel like I'm channeling my inner Rachel Zoe when I wear them. I die for her (and Rodge) by the way.
Favorite Online Purchase
|5 Hair Ties in One Packet $11.99 + S & H|
Pour one out for my velvet scrunchies. You probably think I'm kidding, but I'm as serious as a heart attack. If I wanted to sleep on straitened hair to preserve it's sleekness for the next day, you best believe I would whip out one of my old velvet scrunchies circa my gymnastics crushed velvet leotard days. No longer will I rock a scrunchie at night because I finally ordered the ever so blog-o-sphere popular emi-jay hair ties online yesterday.
If you are still living with the shame of scrunchies at night like I am, then allow me to introduce you to the scrunchie alternative. These hair ties won't pull or dent your hair like a rubberband and are made from a soft and stretchy material that has been hand-dyed and knotted. There are several collections to choose from, but I went with the Cure Collection (pictured above). Can't wait to test these babies out!
Favorite Stella and Dot & Emily Maynard Looks from The Bachelorette Finale
|Emily wore the Stella and Dot Garden Party earrings ($54) with that gorgeous zig zag maxi. As an aside, that maxi which I totally swooned over is currently on Rue La La. Thanks for the tip Possessionista.|
|She also wore the S&D Revival Tassel Necklace, which just so happens to be on sale for $55.30 and has also been featured in InStyle Magazine. Can I please have Emily's Bachelorette wardrobe? Puh-lease.|
Favorite Energy Drink
It is so good and good for you too because it's made with Green Coffee Extract for a boost of natural energy but no coffee flavor. Just a cool, crisp "refreshing" pick-me-up in the afternoon. Def my new drink staple.
Before I turn this thing over to you, I wanted to let y'all know that although yesterday I promised pics of me with Bela Karolyi in today, I am going to do you one better. I'm devoting an entire post to throw-back gymnastics pics next week in honor of the Olympics. I was quite the ugly duckling back in the day, so you'll get a good laugh. I promise.
Your turn. Link-up my ladies.
