Friday Favorites

Happy Friday friends!  YEA!  Weekend is here.  Although in the summer time it sort of feels like all week is one looong drawn out weekend.  But at least on Saturday and Sunday my husband is home and I have back up support around here.  :)  Sharing a few of my latest favorite things!  Like this Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener.  Love this stuff.  You put it under your eyes before concealer and it takes away those dark circles/bags.  (I have awful circles under my eyes because I stay up way too late blogging.)  :)  You can get it on-line but might want to go to a department store to try the different shades.  I wear the Light Bisque 2 so if you have fair skin that’s a good shade to try.  (You can see all of my favorite make-up here.)

Love this yellow Nate Berkus frame I found at Target.
Also love Nate Berkus.  He can be a favorite thing too, right?  :)
Have you all read this book?  It is DARLING!  Oh my word.  So funny.  The Day the Crayons Quit has got to be one of my favorite children’s books I’ve read this year.  It’s hilarious and fun for all ages.  I laughed out loud through the whole thing.  The crayons have all had enough.  Blue is tired of only coloring in large bodies of water, orange and yellow are in a fight because they each believe they are the true color of the sun.  It goes on and on.  All of my kids loved it and Kole kept saying “read it again!”  So so good.
And speaking of books – this is another book I can’t put down.  Bright Bazaar by Will Taylor.  I bought it at West Elm and then realized I could have saved some money by getting it through Amazon so don’t make my same mistake!  But such a fun book!  All about embracing color in your home.  It immediately spoke to me because after finally getting some of our more neutral big pieces of furniture I’m ready to play with color in my house!  Here is a peek at a few of the pages…

This is Will’s house.  Isn’t it happy!?
So much fun right!?  Will has a blog all about COLOR and wrote this book with some of his best tips.  I have loved flipping through it and feeling inspired to bring more color into my home.

A favorite staple for my wardrobe this summer has been these beautiful coral earrings from Banana Republic.

They are a bit heavy so I usually only wear them when I’m going somewhere for a few hours, but they are so pretty and work with a lot of my outfits.  I usually don’t spend much on jewelry and these were a little pricey, but they ended up being worth it because I wear them so much.  I couldn’t find the coral pair on-line but they have them on sale in mint and I love that color too!  May have to snag a second pair.

Since we’re talking Fashion I’ll also share my favorite summer dress.  I found this on sale at the Tommy Hilfiger outlet store and I’ve loved it!  It’s a simple t-shirt button down dress and I like that I can dress it up with heels and jewelry or wear it with flip flops for a casual every day look.  It’s lightweight so it has been nice and cool for summer.  Shoes are the Michael Kors Giovanna wedge.  They are also favorites.  This is my third summer with them and they are still in great shape.

Works for hanging out with these three monkeys.
They are favorites too.
Right up there with Nate Berkus.
Happy weekend everyone!
xoxo, Erin

  1. I am going to try the Bobbie Brown under eye. I bought something similar at Sephora and had it for one day and threw it away. I don’t think I could have given it away. I stay up way to late too. I decided to organize bathroom drawers tonight. I just got done and it is 12:30. But, I have an empty drawer so all is good. :)

    I love the dress and shoes also, and, I can understand why those cute kiddos are your favorite also

    Have a great weekend Erin.

  2. Few things….I love Nate Berkus, those earrings are amazing and your house is amazing!!!!!! Have you tried 3D mascara??? 3D will make your fave things list!!!

  3. I just bought a Nate Berkus curtain today at Target! Not afraid to admit I had never heard the name before but I do love the curtain. :)

    Loved having lunch the other day.

    Still can’t believe I’m back but now that I am…I really need the grand tour of your house.

  4. Hi Erin – We LOVE Oliver Jeffers! Try “Stuck” – Hilarious! We started with that book then looked him up at the library and checked out everything they had from him. Sometimes he’s the author/illustrator and other times just the illustrator so be sure you check out the ones he’s written. My kids recognize his illustrations and will point them out – so funny and so cute!

  5. Hi Erin! I’m confused, you said you don’t curl your hair like in the video anymore? So how do you do it now? The photo in the blog post above looks like the same hair style.

  6. Shari! You’ve never heard of Nate Berkus!? K. We need to catch you up a bit. :) Glad you’re back!

    Thanks Lori! I’ll check it ou!

    Anonymous – I still do my hair basically the same. I just said I should update the video because I curl it a bit different and don’t curl the ends giving it more of a beachy curl. Minor difference! :)
