Friday Favorites-- A Random Assortment

Good morning, happy Friday, and happy Memorial Day Weekend!!!! I don't know about you, but we LOVE Memorial Day Weekend around here. The weather is almost always beautiful, we get to spend some time outside together with family and friends, and Devin gets an extra day off work to spend with us. It doesn't get much better than that!

Today I am linking up with Erika for Friday Favorites and am sharing a few of my  recent obsessions. 

Tarte Base Tape Primer-- Oh my gosh ladies, this Primer smells INCREDIBLE! I'm not going to lie to you, I bought this simply for how good it smells. It has the lightest hint of coconut and makes me think of the beach every time I put it on. I got the sample size in my Ipsy bag this past month and kind of put off using it since I already had some other primers I liked, but now I'm hooked. This works really well, but I'm telling you... the smell alone is reason enough to buy it. Do not buy it from Amazon.. it is $19 cheaper at Ulta through the link above. 
Kate Spade Bags-- If you have a Kate Spade Outlet anywhere near you, RUN don't walk there this weekend! They are having a huge sale for Memorial Day Weekend and I scored a bag that was originally $360 for less than $100. I was debating between both of these pictured above but ended up going with this one:
They were both similarly priced and marked down crazy low. If you don't have an outlet nearby, there is still a good sale on the Kate Spade website. I found this one, this one, and this one all for roughly half off. Not as good as the outlet prices, but still not bad!
Pineapple Peeler-- I know I talked about this a few weeks ago, but I stumbled across this pineapple peeler on Tanya's blog and we have been using this thing nonstop since it came! I can have a peeled, sliced pineapple in less than a minute without any mess whatsoever. If you eat a lot of pineapple (we like to grill ours-- it's so good!), you definitely need to pick one of these up.

And last but not least, our plans for the 3 day weekend:
We are headed to Blowing Rock for the weekend with my parents and I am SO excited! Hiking, shopping, and relaxing by the fire pit here we come! It is supposed to be 95 in Charlotte this weekend so are looking forward to escaping to the mountains for some cooler temps and outside time. 

I hope you all have a great 3 day weekend. See you back here next week!


  1. I love those Kate Spade bags!! Have the sweetest Memorial Day Weekend, it’s suppose to rain here.....noooo! xo

  2. I'm so glad you like the pineapple core product. I have been loving ours...the pineapple tastes so much sweeter when it is cut fresh. We are headed to NC and Virginia soon for vacation and college visits, and I couldn't believe the temperatures on the weather forecast! I expected it to be a little cooler than Tx. Enjoy the mountains!

    1. Oh my gosh, which colleges?? There are so many great ones here!
