Well guys, we survived another week! And this was a long one. This earlier this week I had a couple of projects at work in progress and a lot of meetings, it seemed like the weekend was so far away! But now, all the sudden its Friday! And I am so excited for this weekend! Tomorrow my alma matter, Tulane, takes on Temple in Philly! I'm so excited to tailgate with the Tulane Alumni Club of Philadelphia and see my team. I also have some exciting things I'm working on for the blog, which will be coming up a very soon, and some more outfit posts I'm planning on shooting! Get excited!

Also thanks to everyone who commented on this post, I think I'm going to order #3 and #6! I'm super excited about it! I'll give you feedback on that soon. Also to everyone who wanted feedback on the Laura Mercier foundation primer from this post, I have been using it all week and I'm really enjoying it! It goes on so smooth and adds a really pretty glow to my face. I plan on doing a full makeup primer/setting spray post in the upcoming weeks so I'll have more on that later!

Anyways, here's some stuff I found interesting around the internet this week:

1// I want to make Becky's apple cider mimosas so bad. #addtopinterestboard

2// The Best Hip-Hop song of 2004, a bit of a long read but I found it really interesting. Especially if you're interested in the mid-2000s and hip-hop, which I am. 

3// Speaking of hip-hop, if you like it, I made a quick playlist which I will be jamming to all day tomorrow at work #tgif 

4// Philly peeps! The first Cheesesteak fest was announced and will be held October 24th. There will be over 40 kinds of cheeststeaks to sample, beer, a zip line, and food trucks. I could think of worse ways to spend a Saturday.

6// Loving this epic hoverboard dance to "What do You Mean" by the Biebs, I should definitely buy a hoverboard and learn how to do this, right?

7// Have you seen Olivia Palermo's collection with Baublebar? A lot of it is pre-order currently but it's all so gorgeous! I'd order now because the more popular items in these collaborations tend to sell out quick! My favorite is this necklace

8// The internet is obsessed with the creepy smile of this reigning Jeopardy champ, I love the show and I have been watching this guy's entire run so far...he might be the new Ken Jennings!

9// In terms of shopping, I want this fisherman sweaterthese fringe booties, and this plaid sweater

On the blog this week I:

Notable Sales:

10% off at L.L.Bean  (perfect if you need bean boots since they rarely ever go on sale)
30% off final sale at J.Crew  with code "Shopsale"
50% off Fall faves at Loft with code "Fall50"
Barbour jackets are still 20% off at Nordstrom so nows the time if you want one!

Do you have any big plans this weekend? Have a great one!
