Friday's Favorites

Linking up with Meet @ the Barre.



Break Free by Ariana Grande ft. Zedd

I love when this song comes on the radio as
 I'm sitting in traffic on my morning commute to work.
Makes the long ride so much better.


Naked Basics Palette by Urban Decay

I received this as a Birthday gift from my favorite local photographer Rebecca.  
She knew I would love this palette and I totally do.
 I use it every single day!! 
The eye shadows all blend so well together without looking cakey.
What I love about this is you can create so many different looks.
 I throw it in my makeup bag on the days 
I'm heading out after work and do a little smokey eye.  
For $28 dollars, this palette is well worth it

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

One of my favorite things about fall is all the pumpkin goodies available.
 I was looking for a new recipe for pumpkin cookies and found this one.
How good do they look?
 The remind me of pumpkin munchkins which I LOVE.
Totally going to make these soon. 

Visit here for the recipe. 

Words of Wisdom

I have a bad habit of doubting and second guessing myself.
This has been a difficult week, where I found myself doing both.
 One of the problem is is that I deal with alot of people with VERY BIG EGOS.  
Sometimes, I think they enjoy making others feel inferior to them.
 I was pretty sure I was correct and that they were wrong but they were pretty 
convinced that I was in fact wrong. 
It made me feel pretty bad and to be honest, stupid
. However, as it turns out, I WAS right and they were wrong.
 I thought to myself, Mree you need to believe in yourself more. 
Don't let egotistical people get the best of you. 

That wraps up my Friday's Favorites.
SO happy that the weekend is here.
 No sure what I'm going to do this weekend.
I'm just happy to have a day off!!


What are your favorite's this week?
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Mree
