• Friday Favorites IV

    November 15, 2013

    Good morning and happy Friday!

    Here’s another Friday Favorites post, which highlights some of my favorite finds lately—some of which would make awesome stocking stuffers and holiday gifts!

    Power Link Tassel

    I saw this Power Link Tassel in Real Simple the other day and thought it was so cool. It’s a leather tassel key chain with cords for emergency charging.

    J.Crew Toothpick Jeans in Pitch Black Wash

    I’ve gotten a ton of wear out of these jeans this fall. I LOVE THEM!

    J.Crew Side-Button Sweater in Colorblock

    How fun is this sweater? I love the buttons on the side and pads on the elbows. I actually don’t own this sweater, but it’s definitely on my Christmas list!

    UGG Lina Boots

    Earlier this week, I broke out my winter boots (snow! WHY?!?), which I love, love, love. I get compliments on them all the time and readers always ask me where I got them. I bought them a few years ago from UGG, so, unfortunately, they’re no longer available, but I found a similar pair online. I might even like these ones better!

    Cord Tacos

    I saw these cord tacos in Real Simple a few months ago and immediately knew I needed them in my life. I always have a set of headphones as well as an iPhone cord in my bag, and, of course, they get tangled up, so these were the perfect solution! They’re awesome for traveling!

    So, as a guy I just don’t get all you girls and your obsession with Ryan Gosling, could one of you explain it? I see this reaction all the time and I’m confused. Maybe if I have to ask I will just never get it…and trust me I’m okay with that.

    @Captain Competition: well I can only speak for myself, but to me, Ryan Gosling portrays himself as being handsome, intelligent, and in touch with his emotions and I think that’s really attractive (and not the most common). He could be not at all like this in reality, but I like to think he is :-)

    Love that sweater from JCrew! Christmas is when I stock up on JCrew stuff because I’m too cheap to buy it for myself most of the time! ;-)

    I saw a new Lulu Lemon running jacket – Fluff Off pullover or something like that. It looks and feels amazing yet I am grateful for being allergic to the down filling it is made with since it is costs a pretty penny and I don’t need it. lol

    Thanks, Tina, for pointing out that I need to start reading Real Simple for gift ideas! I love the keychain for emergency charging – that would be so much easier than dragging a cord around in my purse.

    Ryan Gosling…ahhh. That just made my day!

    I am really loving boots that I bought at Target a few weeks ago. They are brown, lace up the front but also zipper up the side, and they go up past the ankle but not too high…super cute and comfy. :)

    This morning I am currently LOVING Panera’s everything bagel!

    And I totally bought the Ryan coloring book from Urban Outfitters for my friend last Christmas. She laughed hysterically.

    I LOVE those jeans, they look so cute and I also love the sweater, it’s so unique! Also, that cord taco is an excellent idea and definitely solves the problem of cords getting tangled. Thanks so much for sharing these innovative ideas!

    I love the cord tacos! Same as you I always have cords in my bag and this would totally help control that chaos. I am loving some of the Target sweaters right now. They have some super cute ones, and priced pretty well!

    I want that power tassel and the tacos! I always get my headphone cords tangled up because I do that terrible thing wear you wrap it around your iPhone…yeah I know, it’s bad, but I’m constantly listening to music in between classes and when walking around campus so sometimes convenience wins!

    Julie @ Better Life with Burgers November 15, 2013 at 9:01 am

    That cord taco would be awesome for my husband. Also, I love those boots…but I’m fashion challenged so I would have no idea what to wear them with. Leggings? Skinny jeans?

    For your electronic cords you should check out: http://www.popsockets.com
    They’re good for wrapping your cords around your devices and they’re also pretty handy for gripping onto your phone, iPad or propping it up to watch movies, etc.
    (I should know–my husband invented them and I never stop hearing about it.) :-)

    I love the chord tassel! That’s so cute and functional. Also, those boots are seriously the first pair of Uggs I actually like and might buy! Super cute!!

    I’m loving the fact that HeadSweats started their 15 Days of Giveaways today! You should check it out – I did a post this morning about it with links to enter.

    Those cord tacos are AMAZING!!! I am definitely getting some (or making some?) for my boyfriend for stocking stuffers! He’s such a gadgettron!

    Today I am loving my new Paleo-inspired Cookbook “Against All Grain”. I’ve been making dishes all week with that book and have been LOVING every single recipe!
