Friday Favorites: What I've Loving This Week
Happy FriYAY! It's been a bit of a crazy, yet amazing week and I'm looking forward to the weekend. Today I want to share some things I've been loving this week and also hear what you've been loving as well! Lets get this party started:

1. Cropped Jeans

The weather has been super mild this week (oh so nice, yet oh so scary at the same time), so I've been able to show a little leg. Cropped jeans have become my new obsession and will definitely be a huge trend this spring. I shared some tips on how to style cropped flared jeans in Monday's post. These ladies below are ROCKING 'em.

2. Cream Gel Eye Shadow

I'm still a huge noob when it comes to makeup, especially eye shadow, but I've been experimenting with blending and found a combination I'm digging. I've been wearing Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tattoo Eye Shadow #55 Inked in Pink as a base and E.L.F. Flawless Eye Shadow Palette (crease and line colors) a lot this week! I love the color tattoo formula because it's a cream gel and lasts all day. I also have it in Bronze! Have you tried cream gel eye shadow? What other brands and shades do you recommend?

 

3. Boss Girl Creative Podcast

I just discovered this podcast this week and am obsessed. It's run by Taylor Bradford and covers everything you need to know about taking your blog to the next level and running it as a business. It's definitely worth binge-listening, check it out here!

4. You Guys!

I'm still in shock at how popular my 7 Things I'm Doing Right Now To Grow My Blog post did!  A lot of you said it helped you, which I'm so glad about. That's why I'm here :) You guys are amazing and thank you for taking the time to read it and grabbing your freebie. Is there any other areas you are struggling in that you would like me to talk about? Jenniffer of Life Is Messy and Brilliant asked me to write about how I promote my blog on Intsagram and Twitter, which I have added to my to-blog list!

5. Visiting My Alma Mater 

I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in 2013 and was asked to speak to a class yesterday! I shared my journey and how I got to where I am now. I also shared some school and career advice that I would have liked to know when I was in their shoes. I even got to reminisce around campus and town and got all the feels, because I called this place home for three years.

I've been on a little sushi kick and stopped in at an old favorite restaurant to grab an avocado roll before hitting the road. Do you like sushi? What's your favorite kind of roll?

Bonus! Favorite Outfit of the Week


Dress: H&M / Top: American Apparel / Shoes: ASOS / Jacket: second-hand / Bag: Forever 21

It was in the 70s yesterday, so I wore a slip dress layered over a fitted white t-shirt and my black slip-on mules. Can't wait to wear slip dresses more often when it's spring!

  3. I really like this post! That is so cool that you got to go back to your alma mater and speak! I hope that after I graduate and start my own business I can do some public speaking like that as well.
