Friday Favorites

There are few things finer than an awesome and unexpected pick me up.
My pick me up came in the form of my dear friend Amy and a gift basket she made celebrating my favorite season: Fall.
(you may have heard already that I adore Fall)
Thank you so much Amy!  You made my night/day!


This basket contains a vast array of my favorites: pumpkin scented soap and hand sanitizers from Bath and body works,
yummy snacks and drinks, a new adorable scarf....too many things to mention!!

It also included these crazy-cute slippers! I'm in love!

 

Another new and unexpected favorite is a new recipe I stumbled upon via Pinterest (of course) and decided to give it a try this morning:  homemade coffee creamer
I decided to try the Cinnamon Strudel version and can not wait to try some other variations!
The thing I love about this creamer is that it is dairy free, has less sugar, and has a lot less chemicals floating around in my coffee!
If you have a few minutes and are feeling brave, give it a try!


And last but not least is my new dress I snagged while on our trip to Seattle.
This little dress was purchased at Banana Republic.
I initially found it hanging on the clearance rack, looking a little sad that it hadn't been adopted yet.
Lo and behold, I swept in and (after some sweet talking ) managed to purchase it for an additional 20% off with another $10 taken off for a final purchase of $23.00.
As you know, I love a good find....especially when I didn't pay full price for it.
World, meet my dress



I just love all of it's little details that can be dressed up....or down!

That's it for now! I hope you are finding some of your new favorites and enjoying them as much as I am as well!
