Friday's Favorites

Linking up with Meet @ the Barre.



 Bailando by Enrique Iglesias 

I love everything about this man!! He is so hot and so isn't this song!!
Every time I hear it I just want to get up and dance.
Yes, I'm totally that crazy person dancing while in the car sitting in traffic.
Go ahead laugh.


Revolution Lipstick by Urban Decay

I was getting tired of my pink lipstick as I have been wearing it for a few months. 
This past weekend as I was browsing Ulta, I came across this lipstick.
What drew me to it was that each color had a matching lip pencil.
Gotta love that as I'm a lip pencil and lipstick type of gal.
 I immediately tried on Rouge 69. 
It's a bright red with pink undertones.
Loved it as soon as I put it on.
I have been wearing it ever since.
What I like about this lipstick is that the color is bold and long lasting.
What I don't like is that it can be a little drying. 
However, I add some clear gloss over it and it's fine. 
This is my new color for fall.
Oh and I swear it makes my whole face brighter.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

I love sweet potato fries.
 Not only are they tasty but they are good for you.
So easy to make. All you need is 
 sweet potatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper.
Cut them up, put them in a bowl, add some olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper.  
Shake them around, make sure to coat all of them.
Put a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
Turn them over and bake for another 15 minutes.
Take out of oven and let cool for a few minutes.
Makes a great side dish or snack.
Simple, easy and delicious!!

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I always strive for perfection.
  I want everything to be to perfect, picture perfect.
Where ever I look these days, I see alot of perfection. 
Perfect homes, perfect outfits, perfect children, perfect pictures, etc.
 But really what I see is alot of "staged" perfection.
 That is not real life. No one has a perfect life. No one.
I'd much rather be real with all my mistakes than be fake. 
If I'm anything, I'm 100% real. 
Plus, no one is gonna tell you that their lives is far from perfect.
The grass is not always greener on the other side. 


That wraps up my Friday Favorites.
I have no plans this weekend.
I think I might just stay home and chill.
 I have been working alot and well, I'm tired. 
Does that make me a bad blogger cause I don't feel like doing anything?
Yeah, maybe a little. But even bloggers need a break. 


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