Friday Favorites – The First of December

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.

Happy Friday!  I hope everyone had a great week.  This one was a short week for me as I’m currently up in Atlanta about to see my Gators most likely get steamrolled by the Tide.  It’s okay though, it should still be a fun weekend!  It’s also freezing up here!  I guess Florida is really the only state that still hasn’t gotten the Winter memo.  Let’s get into the favorites from the week.


Favorite Song

Welcome to your new favorite chill vibes running/workout/feel good song.  Smoke Filled Room by Mako.

December is here, bring on the peppermint everything!  No Bake Peppermint White Chocolate Cheesecakes original pin here.


Favorite Workout

Favorite Purchase

I ordered these beauties during the SHOPBOP sale (they are still 40% off currently!).  They look just like these Prada block heels but 1/5 of the price!

    have a great time!! every weekend is so busy for us now that when i find out there’s nothing planned, i get super excited because napping and being lazy wins everything.

  7. December 4, 2015 / 7:24 AM

    Have a great weekend and hope your team wins!

    That work out looks intense! Haha. It might only be 10 minutes but I can feel the burn just watching the first 20 seconds. We just got cold this week in the Atlanta/Birmingham belt. It was still in the upper 60’s on like Monday. So don’t let this cooler weather fool you! I hope you have an amazing time….but I have to say it….ROLL TIDE!

    Loveee those booties!! Such a great deal too. Have a blast in ATL this weekend— bummed to be missing you! At least the dome is enclosed and you’’ll be inside :)

  10. December 4, 2015 / 8:25 AM

    Glad I am not alone in the peppermint love, I could live off of peppermint bark in the winter! Those booties are everything, I’ve been trying to find some with a small heel or a wedge because I’m the clumsiest person ever but I am realllly loving those black ones!
    Happy Saturday!

    Girl I am right there with you in being obsessed with all things Peppermint. Those cupcakes your husband got you that you put on Snapchat. Seriously, I was foaming at the mouth. I’ll take peppermint with a side of peppermint please. (; If only we really could get ready like a power ranger. (; Have a great weekend Amanda!

    Oh no! Don’t tell me it’s cold in Atlanta–I’m headed there next week. Time to find wherever the sweaters are hidden…

    But really, why is it so hard to find good barre/Pilates videos online? So many make me cringe.

  31. December 4, 2015 / 3:18 PM

    The No Bake Peppermint White Chocolate Cheesecakes looks delish! Cracking up at your funnies. I’m pretty sure I’m always ready for happy hour ;-) Enjoy the weekend!

  32. December 4, 2015 / 3:40 PM

    LOL! I love all those meme’s! I think you should do a TBT post and have some of those figure skating pictures/videos featured :)! My cousin lives up in Atlanta and said it was chilly there today, Florida is just in it’s own weather world lol! Have a blast while you’re there and hope your team does well!

  33. December 4, 2015 / 5:03 PM

    I feel like you need to share those old ice skating photos on your blog. ;) Hope you have fun in Atlanta! :)

    Love your funnies- I look forward to sleeping, especially after a day like today when I had to wake up at 5:45. Some of my classmates are going out but I feel like an old lady haha :)

    Enjoy your weekend!
