Friday Favorites

Don't you feel so accomplished when you reach another Friday?!  I know I say this all the time, but this past week was insanely busy.  I am honestly exhausted and am actually happy that it's going to be freezing cold this weekend because it gives me an excuse to stay in and hibernate!  Talk to you all next week!

1.  Favorite new lip color!

I was shopping in Sephora this week and realized I had missed picking up my free birthday gift in January!  Thankfully, Sephora employees are super friendly (shout-out to the Shadyside store) and allowed me to cash in and get my birthday gift a few days late.  I opted for the Marc Jacobs gift that included a mini eyeliner and my new favorite lipstick shade – Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.  The girl helping me at Sephora told me it’s the perfect pink and I think she’s totally right!  It’s a nice bright color, but definitely not over-powering.  I really think it would work well with almost any skin tone as well!  Thanks Sephora!

2.  Favorite news of the week!

Beyonce’s going on tour and she’s coming to Pittsburgh.  My feelings on that:

3.  Favorite dresses that can totally be worn after Valentine's Day!

4.  Favorite deal of the week!

You guys!  Remember the boyfriend jeans I wore in my last post (they were also my “blogger top pick” a couple of weeks ago)?  Well, I mentioned they were a bit pricey.  BUT – I found them on m-a-j-o-r sale this week (under $60)!  There are also other awesome One Teaspoon options on big time sale!!

5.  Favorite Pittsburgh list!

Since I featured “The Thrifty Yinzer” this week, I figured I would keep the yinzer spirit alive in Friday Favorites.  This list is a compilation of all the best ways to indulge on that infamous “cheat day.”  Check out Fittsburgh's "The 15 Most Delicious Things to Eat on Cheat Day in PGH."  Not surprisingly, Prantl's Bakery made the list with their Burnt Almond Torte.  A co-worker brought one of these in for a birthday this week and seriously it's one of the best desserts you will ever eat!  Well worth the extra 30 minutes you'll need to spend on the treadmill!

6.  Favorite lists for day-dreaming (or terrifying your boyfriend)!

A few weeks ago, posted a list of the top French baby names.  I swooned over Aveline, Solene, Lilou, Marielle, Melina, and Remi.  This week, I couldn't help but check out 32 NYC-inspired baby names.  I am kind of in love with Wythe, Waverly, Fulton, and Varick.  I can already hear my mom grumbling and shaking her head (love you mom)!  If fur babies are more your speed, there is also a most popular doggie names list!

And we'll end Friday Favorites with one of the most beautiful babies I have ever seen!  Have a good weekend friends!  XOXO
