Friday Favorites – The Start of November

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

I feel like I blinked and this week was over.  Does anyone else feel that way?  I just want time to chill for a second because the holidays are going to be here before we know it and I am just not ready for that yet.  I hope everyone had a nice week.  I was playing catch up the entire time it felt like but I am in town this weekend and plan on watching lots of football and relaxing.  Let’s get into these favorites for the week!

Favorite Links & Pins


I was asked yesterday on a phone collaboration meeting of the minds, what my life goals and long term goals were.  Well, this post just speaks to me.  I am an obsessive list maker and this is pure perfection for the OCD/Planners in all of us.


Two healthy vegan recipes that I am itching to make, one with spaghetti squash and one with quinoa.


I love arm workouts that do not require weights.  Also, check this burner stair workout.


Such a great read that is easy to follow on landscape photography.  I cannot wait to try some of these challenges!


8 things to do before 8 am to make your day less hectic, read it here.  I have been trying to get up earlier and earlier to have that extra time just to myself before the craziness of the day takes over.


10 things to stop doing with your makeup right now.  Are you guilty of some of these?


Favorite Shops & Deals

My favorite online store ever Zappos is now price matching through the holidays.  This is not in any way sponsored content, just pumped that they are finally on board with that!  I just ordered these velvet pumps and cannot wait to have them for the holiday season.


Give me all the moto jackets especially at these price points.  I just ordered one from them and I was very impressed with the quality.  Check it in this post.


I just ordered my 2017 planner.  I promise you if you are a monthly at a glance lover like I am, this one is perfection.  Plus, it is slim and good quality.  I also (since we are talking about Amazon) ordered these tweezers and they are better than my Tweezerman pair for half the price.  Last, I am loving my new rosegold iPhone 7 case.


Nordstrom has started their Fall clearance sale already.  I am in love with these Sam Edelman pumps that are perfect for the holidays. These Lush tops were the first to sell out during the Anniversary sale, they are a cult classic for a reason.  Same with this Nixon watch.  I love this bracelet set and it would make a really nice gift.  My favorite shoe to travel in, seriously you will not regret this purchase.  Hunter boots fully stocked and 30% off.


If you are a Sephora Rouge VIB (lucky you) today starts your 20% off in stores and online.  If you are a regular ole VIB member like myself over here, the 20% starts November 11th.  Make sure to check back because I will be rounding up all my favorite picks for the sale and holiday gift sets like I do every year.  You don’t want to miss that!  This black eyeliner from Marc Jacobs is patiently waiting in the cart for checkout.

When you see things like……there are only 7 more Fridays until Christmas

Swearing off Halloween candy for good…..then it’s 3pm…..and you find a solo Reese’s shoved in the bottom of your bag

  1. LOL yes! That is exactly how I feel when I see the countdowns to Christmas. I got my new 2017 planner a couple of weeks ago & it makes me so happy. Have a great weekend!

    That’s exactly how I am when I see how close Christmas is!!!

    Gotta go see what planner you’re talking about – I’ve already tried to narrow down what I’m using for 2017 – have bought a few of them – but still dont know which one I’m using. I’ll have a pile of unused planners by the end of the year.

  7. Emily says:

    Well now that I have about 10 links open from this post I’m off to go stalk all the things you talked about! ;)

    ah, thank you for the reminder about the sephora sale!!

  14. Marie says:

    I feel like everyday is flying by. Where is time going?? I wish it would slow down. The sephora sale starts for me today. Seeing as I have no shame, I’m heading there today! haha My sister loves the Hourglass foundation so I want to go find my color and try it out. I do feel really bad for my credit card because I always set a budget for this sale and always go over. haha. Thanks for sharing that iphone case!! I totally need to get it. It’s so pretty! Do you like the 7? The only thing I have noticed is that it is faster but other than than, I can’t see much of a difference. Have a wonderful weekend pretty lady!!

  15. Meg Taylor says:

    7 Fridays until Christmas?? Nuts to think that I need to start shopping! Those veggie quinoa bowls look soooo good, too! I hope you have a great weekend!

    Still can’t get used to the fact that it’s November! This week for some reason felt like it dragged, but I’m sure my weekend will be over in a blink! That Lebron gif is hilarious because I think he looks like a baby gorilla, but not in a cute way…Happy Friday friend!

  17. Nadine says:

    Yes to every last one of your funnies today!! I am like get out of my mind! I pinned both of those recipes, yum! Peanut sauce anything is for me! I love those Tom wedges and keep thinking I just need to pull the trigger. Talking about life goals and long term plans right now gives me hives. lol. I am trying so desperately to figure out what I REALLY want to do so I can work towards it after baby gets here. I sort of have been in a holding pattern this year. You know?

  18.…Your video clips are too funny!!!! Love them!

  19. Helene says:

  20. Amanda says:

    Thanks for the great links to read! I saw Nordstrom’s sale. I’m scared to even look at all of the goodness, because I’m trying to be good right now and not spend too much. Hope you’re weekend is relaxing!

  22. Lebron getting excited for our Indians was literally the best thing to happen to my week. lol Being a Cleveland sports fan, or a Clevelander in general, can be a let down at times. Even though we lost, it feels so good and seeing everyone come together. (:

  23. I love your Friday posts so much! LeBron’s reaction was THE BEST . It was so stinking cute! I am absolutely in love with those gorgeous velvet pumps, insert heart eyes here! I hope you have an amazing weekend, Amanda!
