Friday Favs

Happy Friday! This first week back at work after so much time off for the holidays was not as rough as I expected, but my alarm clock is most certainly not my friend. Looking forward to sleeping in and some playoff football this weekend...
1. I've been loving my Bar Method membership, and the convenience of getting an amazing workout during my lunch break.

2. Still obsessed with this book, I've been reading it every night and taking notes. So many fabulous tips on where to go, eat, shop, drink, etc..

3. Don't forget to enter the Urban Decay Naked Palette giveaway here to celebrate Brittany's birthday. Good luck!
4. I received the Sephora Lingzhi Mask in my stocking and love how soft it's left my skin, plus it's giving me more of a glow which is always appreciated especially when I'm extra tired.
5. Favorite posts this week:
 Christina's Want List Travel Edition (Totally stealing this idea for future post)

Linking up today with Rebecca for That Friday Blog Hop, April for 5 on Friday, Tif for High Five for Friday, and Amanda for Friday Favorites. Hop on over and join us! Happy Friday!

  12. The struggle has been real this week, for sure! I'm looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend at home! I loved Christina and Kristen's posts this week too! Reading Christina's I wanted to add like 20 more places to my travel list, and reading Kristen's helped me to figure out an easy way to budget while traveling. I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  39. So probably TMI question... Do you shower after working out after lunch? That's absolutely my deterrent, but I definitely prefer working out at lunch!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ah barre looks like so much fun! I have not been to a class yet but it is definitely on the 2016 list of thing to try! Love those decorating books too...always good to find inspiration from places! Thank you for sharing and I hope your weekend is going well!
