Friday Favs

The holiday weekend last week was so refreshing, and then the work week came roaring in which kept me pretty quiet in these parts this week. I'm so ready for this weekend, and couldn't be more excited about our annual Christmas party.
1. I've been eyeing all the ornaments as I stand in line at Starbucks, and H took one of my many not-so-subtle hints and brought one of these pretties home for me to hang on the tree.
2. Finally finished decorating our beautiful tree, and I love the beautiful cozy glow coming from the living room now. I'll post some more Christmas decor pics soon.
3. I enjoyed my last Barre3 class for a while with a complimentary card which made it even nicer because free.  I took advantage of the amazing Cyber Monday deal at Bar Method and will be enjoying unlimited classes for a month at a much more affordable price.
4.  I went for a much-needed pedicure, and my nail girl had the prettiest snowflakes on her toes which she re-created for me as well. I love the festive red and beautiful sparkly snowflakes. I am already totally taking for granted that I can show off pretty pedicures year round in sandals.
5.  I feel like the VIB Sale just happened, and the $20 off cards already arrived. Great opportunity to pick up some of the items I left behind last month like this Hourglass palette or this DryBar brush.

 It wouldn't be a Friday in these parts without some of my recent Pinterest loves:

  1. Your nails look so cute! I got a mani/pedi yesterday in the same color. So perfect for Christmas! Love those starbucks ornaments too. My friend has a little tree with a coffee theme, so I buy some for her every year. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Love your nails!! There are few things that feel better than getting a fresh mani or pedi! So sweet of your hubs to get you one of the starbucks ornaments--they are so cute and I'm sure the perfect edition to your beautiful tree! Speaking of cute, I kinda think those reindeer diamond earrings are adorable!!
