Friday Faves

TGIF! I’ve been riding the struggle bus all week, it’s like the entire week has felt like a Monday, I’m groggy and can’t seem to wake up or feel like doing anything.  To top it off every single day this week I’ve planned to do outfit shoots and it’s rained which is why I resorted to crafting.  If I can’t get outside then why not craft?  I transformed an old globe into what I like to call a global-fash-phenominon.

It’s amazing what a girl can do when you give her some Mod Podge! All I did was take an old globe, cover it will MP, place magazine cutouts all over and seal with Mod Podge sealer and voila! I received quite a few DM’s from people asking me where I got my glitter candle and the truth is I made it as well.  Here’s the link to the tutorial I did earlier in the year on how to craft these glitter candles.

Earlier in the week my best friend of 10+ years who recently moved into a house that’s like a block over from where Brian and I bought a house (I know right, my bestie lives like right by me) asked me to be a bridesmaid.  The excitement I have for my best friend getting married is unexplainable.  We’ve literally been through hell and back, bad boyfriends and going to separate colleges.  Through all life has thrown us we’ve never left each others side and I absolutely love that she has found love! To top of my excitement of being a bridesmaid I found the most adorable and perfect platform heels (I know shoes don’t top a wedding but it was a perfect ending to the perfect day).

Seriously how stinking cute?! I literally died when I walked into SoBo and spotted them! I had been wanted a pair of platform mules but couldn’t never find the perfect pair and quite frankly not having a strap on the back of a platform had me a little nervous so when I saw these I jumped on ’em!

To end on a super sweet moment, I stubbled across this picture of Brian and I from 2008!  My bestie who’s getting married is the one who took this photo which makes it even more special to me, my best friend took a photo of me and the love of my life!  Sorry to get so sappy & I apologize for the poor quality of the photo, it was clearly taken with probably the first generation iPhone. Oh and yes we we’re that tan, no filter needed!

    Oh no! I’m sorry to hear you’ve been feeling groggy. Despite not feeling great, I’m obsessed with your globe project! That was such a cute, clever idea. When I’m not feeling well I do much of anything, much less get creative and work on a DIY project. Bravo!

    I love that shot of you and your man from 2008 as it’s super cute & the quality of it just makes it even better because it is an older photo. No need to apologize for the quality when it’s an antique. Super cute & I’m with you on feeling like it was Monday all week….seriously I only look forward to Fridays! I feel bad basically wishing my life away each day of the week but I live for the weekend…I’m sure we all do! xx adaatude.com
