Friday Favorites – Springing It

Happy Friday my loves!  I am off today so make sure to follow along with me on snapchat (@meetatthebarre).  Did everyone have a good week?  Are you ready for the Sephora sale today?  I need to reorder my favorite mascara and I’m definitely going to take the plunge and get this palette.   This lip color by Laura Mercier in Fuchsia Mauve, I’ve been wearing it in most of my fashion posts lately and y’all have been hitting me up about the color.  This is my tried and true bronzer, it is a cult classic for a reason.  It gives the most natural flush with no sparkly micro glitter.  The best formula nail polish in my opinion, this set has all the colors you’ll need.

Loved Ashley’s Greek chicken recipe, I actually have have all the ingredients, definitely want to make it this weekend!


The Shopbop sale is over but don’t fret, my other favorite online retailer is still going on.  Friends and Family 25% off sale with the code FRIENDS.  I am eyeing this BB Dakota romper, how insanely gorgeous is this Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag? Or this purse which is already marked down and then add the 25% on top of it.  How perfect are these grey skinnies?  DL1961 denim is my absolute favorite right now.  These Alo leggings are one of the best sellers in the barre studio.

Favorite blog post, I would love to try this bathroom makeover, I mean don’t you want to live in this space?

  3. We both have a bronzer on the mind to purchase for the sale :) Gary does the SAME thing about letting dishes soak, but if that means he does them…then that’s fine with me! I don’t like elevator small talk…I always look at my phone – so bad I know! Happy Friday! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  4. I just love those wedges! I have been seeing them so many places and fall a little more in love with them each time! I am super sad OJ is over, too. Such a great show!!! Happy Friday!

  5. charity says:

    I’m so excited about the Sephora sale! My list is a mile long ;) Have a great weekend.

  6. Rebecca Jo says:

    Oh, I didn’t know the OJ show was over – I always like getting it about 3 episodes ahead on my DVR & then binging on it. I’ll be sad to see it end too – its been so interesting seeing it all over again.

    Enjoy your day off!

  7. Nadine says:

    Ahhhh stop it with the sales. All my monies is going to be gone! Haha! I love that palette, so pretty! And forever 21 really is hell on a weekend. I had to go in there to get something for my niece one day and needed a large beverage when I finally got out. Letting the dishes soak. LOLOLOLOL. Hope you have a great weekend!!!

  8. You always have the funniest gifs! Love the “You made a powerful enemy today” and the living hell at Forever 21. Yup! Sums it up!

  9. Ashley says:

    I have a love hate relationship with all these sales! Too many good deals! Thanks for the link love lady :) Hope you enjoy it!

  10. Kelly K says:

    I’m so excited about the Sephora sale! I have that Hourglass palette and it’s such an awesome investment! I use it a ton!

  11. Jenn says:

    All of the funnies are spot on as always!
    And did you really just tell me about ANOTHER sale??? I can’t take it!!!!!! lol

  12. I love the gifs. I hate small talk too, it’s so awkward on an elevator. Love the maxi dress on you! Have a great weekend!

  13. Owen Davis says:

    OMG I avoid Forever 21 at all cost. That place gives me anxiety just walking by the store!!!

  14. Caroline says:

    The Andy Cohen gif is my favorite. Like yeah don’t talk to me haha. The dishwasher/husband thing….Chris always puts his dish in the sink. I’m like umm check the dishwasher first. I went into a Forever 21 a month ago on a week day and it stressed me out. And it was empty in the store. I’m also pretty sure that I’m way too old to shop there haha. Enjoy your day off and I hope that you have a fab weekend!! :-)

  15. Rachel says:

    I went to Forever last Saturday to pick up a cheap pair of sunnies and I looked around and though, “HOW IN THE WORLD DID I USED TO LOVE COMING HERE?” Like traveled out of town to shop there before we had one in my town. Yikes. Thanks, but no thanks. Have a good weekend, girl!

  16. I’m way too excited about the Sephora sale! I’ve been lusting after that Hourglass palette forever, and think it’s time to finally pull the trigger! I was super sad about the end of the OJ documentary too, my DVR cut off about 15 minutes of the ending so I re-recorded it when it re-aired with an extension. You know… first world problems. Happy Friday <3

  17. I saw all of your Shopbop goodies in your snaps last night! SO many pretty things! Ugh I can’t even walk into Forever 21 any more. It drives me crazy! Happy Friday! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  18. Kara says:

    ‘you made a powerful enemy’ …I died hahaha and yes sephora has sucked me dry with their sale

  19. Hope you have a great day off! Greek chicken sounds amazing, definitely need to try out that recipe!

  20. Kaitlin says:

    Oooh, I did not KNOW Sephora was having a sale too!! Seriously LOL about Forever21. I even have some returns there I didn’t bother returning because it wasn’t worth the effort, haha! And the last funny about Siri – hahaha. So true. Have a great weekend!

  21. Pinky says:

    Totally forgot about the Sephora sale…..OOOOPS!

  22. Emily says:

    Love that Joie maxi dress!! And major lolz at your f21 funny…I literally opted out of even returning something recently because it had only cost $15 and that wasn’t worth dealing with that store to me hahaha! Have a great weekend! xx

  23. Darcy says:

    i Totally forgot about the sephora sale!! I don’t need anything, buuuut if the price is right ;)

  24. OMG I can’t with all of these sales! Good think I have 2 Sephora gift cards waiting to be used…just in time! Wohoo! My husband ALWAYS soaks the dishes! Hahaha! I thought he might be the only one, too funny! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  25. Paige says:

    Sephora! Totally forgot about that! And I’ve been on way too much this week too!

  26. I’m thinking I need to hire your Siri because mine is the effing WORST at voice to text! Love, love those laceup wedges I keep seeing. Will me your Tory satchel, mmk? ;) Happy weekend, love!

  27. Emily says:

    I did that mashup workout earlier this week too! Ouchie—in the best way possible.

    Ummm, so those Alo Yoga mesh leggings (stirrup?! yes, please) are definitely a need and not a want.

  28. I may be ignoring the clothes sales, but I am going to get on that sephora sale! I wish siri would speak my accent, her typos are hilarious when I type text though. My weird long Canadian way of saying vowels get her every time! Happy Weekend!

  29. Jaelan says:

    You look so awesome in that Joie dress! Hope you have a great day off. Can’t WAIT to buy some stuff at Sephora tomorrow.

  30. Too funny about your thoughts on F21….I agree! I will only shop on their website! I adore that maxi dress with your TB shoes and bag! That’s my idea of a perfect weekend outfit! Love!

  31. think i need to try your fave mascara!! sounds like an awesome one to me!! I love that Joie dress! and yay for a day off!

  32. What is with husbands leaving dishes in the sink to soak tho?! Kirk does it every single time I cook. Ridic. And does siri ever get all the talk to text words right??? Hahaha. Are those the grey jeans from your snap pictured above?!

  33. emelia says:

    ommmmmgggg the dish soaking thing kills me…NO, they go in the dishwasher and that cleans them, not the soaking…LOL! I loved all your snaps of your shopbop goodies, and the VIB sale is loving me today because I just kept adding and adding to my cart. hahahha, enjoy your weekend!

  34. AHHH! My husband does the same thing with the dishes! Drives me up the frickin’ wall because what is really happening is that he is letting them “soak” so I can do them in the morning ;) That TIU Mashup workout is awesome, right?! Have a wonderful day off!


  35. Leah says:

    I love when Siri gets my talk to text correctly and totally agree on not understanding the soak in theory! Ha. Have a great weekend! -xx Leah || Chasing Texas

  36. Kayla MKOY says:

    Ughhhh hate elevator small talk. It’s just the worst. It’s basically the reason I take the stairs everyday at work! ;) have a fun weekend, girl!

  37. You have so many goodies selected for the Seohora sale, and I hope you love that new lipgloss that you’re getting! I still love your post about styling maxi dresses! It was awesome! I hope you’re having a great Friday so far!

  38. Lindsay says:

    I feel exactly the same way about no more OJ. WHAT WILL I WATCH!? I’m so glad I am not the only one with a “let is soak” husband. Why?! I don’t get it!!

  39. Karly says:

    As always, great roundup! Ashley’s Greek chicken recipe looks so good, and I’m crushing on Media Marmalade, too thanks to you! Hope you had a good weekend!

  40. Yes! My boyfriend always lets the dishes soak and I have to explain it every single time! Also that F21 gif is exactly how I feel trying to get groceries at Trader Joe’s on any Sunday!

    Bahaha! Your funnies are the greatest every time! I love your entire look in the first pic. Perfection!

  42. Rachael says:

    Thank you for sharing the OJ Simpson fact checker website…. I am off to read!

  43. Thank you for the clarity. I have been researching these amendments and found you to be the most informative. Also, Florida is not backward. Some just cannot handle the responsibility that is required to be a free republic.
