Friday Favorites & Catch Up's

OH my gosh, it has been SO long since I've done a Friday Favorites post & I MISS THEM! AND all of you too! With the Holidays creepin' up super fast on us I figured now is a good time for me to get back into the swing of things with my blog, it's so easy to neglect in when things like Instagram & Facebook make it so easy to connect, but I do miss blogging and sharing all of the things with you.

This week was FULL of some super fun finds, in no particular order but, I can't rave ENOUGH about these mugs, I know we've all been Rae obsessed for a while and don't get me wrong, I still love it all, I'm just sort of keeping my mug options open, ya know? A girl needs variety, after all, they say it's the spice of life. And these are so darn fun! I seriously just want them all. They make such awesome gifts too! 
I am DROOLING over this welcome mat from West Elm.
ugh, don't tell Nick that. He'll be all "Really?! IT'S A WELCOME MAT." You know, men don't get that sort of stuff, but I really need this, like, reaaaaaalllly reallllly really NEED this. Christmas is coming soon, I mean, just in case any of you wanna get me something. Actually, Be right back...

Okay, just ordered it. OOOOOOOPS. #sorrynotsorry. I mean, it will look so darn cute on our super cozy porch, don't ya think? 

UPDATE: THIS MAT SOLD OUT ALREADY! You can find a duplicate here!

I shared this cute military vest I got earlier this week over on the gram and I'm basically obsessed, SO versatile for all the months, wear it with long sleeves in the winter, T-shirt's in the fall, and well, you get the idea. I've been looking for a vest like this for a while and all the ones I found were too long for me, since I'm on the shorter side. This was the perfect length and fit. I ordered an XS and it fits me perfectly. If you'll be layering with sweaters though, jump up a size.
And here is where I'm planning to change things up a bit for Friday Favorites and add in some questions I've been getting asked most often this week, either on Instagram, Facebook or right here on my blog! I absolutely LOVE chatting with all of you, and I adore you all for being able to talk to me like we're best friends, which, we basically are honestly, which is why I feel just so darn awful when one of your sweet messages or questions slips through the cracks. So hopefully this will be a great way for us to keep up with each other. 

1. Which foundation do you use?
I don't know why but this has been coming up a ton this week, I assure you, snapchat filters are my life. But I can't hide behind them all the time on Instagram, especially in stories. I use a mix of all foundations honestly, I try different ones all the time, I'm sort of a makeup junkie, but I'm not really special at it or anything. I just like to try new products. Currently I'm using Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation and I love it, it's a little pricey so I don't use it everyday, but when I do use it, it gives me just enough coverage. I have some dark spots from acne in my younger years and it covers them all completely. Plus it stays on FOREVER and doesn't break up or sink into your pores immediately. I really think the key to great foundation though is the way you apply it, I use a Beauty Blender after applying Pores No More, I have acne prone skin to this DAY and this is the only primer that doesn't cause massive breakouts. 

2. Where are your kitchen cabinet drawer pulls from?
Totally one of the most asked questions this week after I shared on my stories where I bought them for so cheap. Both pulls are from Amazon. The upper cabinet pulls can be found here and the lower cabinet pulls can be found here. Both sets are under $25! If you're looking to freshen up your kitchen space on a budget and without painting cabinets, adding hardware is the best way to do it! It made SUCH a huge difference in our kitchen. 

3. What Pillow Inserts do you use?
Ya'll know I L.O.V.E me some pillows, all kinds. As long as they're extra fluffy and soft. I love buying covers from all sorts of different shops. And it can be tough to find inserts that are inexpensive and still super fluffy and soft. I ONLY buy these inserts. I honestly haven't found any I love as much, also, if I buy a 20 x 20 cover, I buy 20 x 20 inserts. Most of the time, I find makers and companies leave a little room for you to comfortably fit an insert inside.

and that's it for this week folks, I hope you enjoyed this weeks edition of Friday Fav's and hope you pop back in next week, if there is something you'd like to see here let me know! Also, next week I'll be doing a Target Lately haul post! Because duh, we love TARGET! Hope ya'll have a great weekend!

The Best FALL Decor From Amazon!

Hey friends! My gosh I didn't realize just how much I missed blogging until I sat down to type this post. I needed to take a little break over the Summer just to sort of refresh and get the creative juices flowing again. I really wanted to focus on spending time with my babes who started PreK & High School this year, which is crazy unbelievable. It felt nice, and was much needed. BUT boy, I sure did miss ya guys! 

The time has come to be in our homes again, as much as I adore laying out by the pool, boat days on the bay, and lazy afternoons at the beach, life changes again when the cool mornings of fall set in. I find myself itchin' to break out the cozy sweaters, comfy slippers & cute mugs. I know most of you are shaking your head "yes" right now. Catchin' all the fall vibes I'm throwing out in this post! 

Recently, I started a new home decor group on Facebook and it's been TONS of fun! One of the questions I've been getting asked by people a ton via all means of social media? 

"What's your favorite fall decor from Amazon?" Some of ya'll might be like, well..that's kinda weird. I mean,  you can buy Home Decor on Amazon now? UM, yes. Yes you can! Even better? Is that it's CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP! And still high quality. So just for fun, today I'm rounding up all my favorite fun farmhouse style fall decor from one of my favorite places to shop. I sure hope you find this post helpful if you've been looking to spruce up a space for the upcoming "cozy" season! 

Dough Bowls are pretty much an essential piece in ANY Farmhouse- but they're extra perfect for fall decor. Why you ask? Well because they look pretty as can be filled up with pumpkins and florals, books and candle sticks, blankets and mugs..pretty much anything you can think of, can be used to decorate a dough bowl for fall and the cooler months. Of course you can search your local antique shops for some vintage dough bowls, I must say though that you can't beat the price of the pretty dough bowls being offered on Amazon right now!

I seriously ADORE Amazon and their large selection of affordable pillow covers. I change our pillows pretty often here, especially our seasonal pillows, and those things can sure get pricey! Thankfully Amazon has a crazy awesome selection of adorable farmhouse pillows that work perfect for every season. TOTALLY crushing on this 'Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice  Pillow' and diggin the price even more! 

I'll be the first one to admit that I love real pumpkins, but the fakes that have been out in stores lately have been crazy on point. I love these little guys, they're perfect in lanterns, vignettes, on candle sticks, in dough bowls, pretty much anywhere you can think to shove some pumpkins! And even better? You can use them year after year. WINNING.

4. Fall Florals
I use lambs ear pretty much year round in my farmhouse decor, it's such a pretty light floral and fits in perfectly with the modern farmhouse style, I really love them in neutral fall decor. There is nothing more simple, or beautiful then a dough bowl with some lambs ear and white pumpkins. However, I know sometimes I crave the beauty of traditional fall decor, the reds, oranges and yellows are so warming. I didn't forget about ya'll! These gorgeous harvest florals are stunning quality and full of traditional fall farmhouse goodness, don't you agree!?

5. Hand Towels
If you've been around for a bit you know my love of hand towels, don't ask questions okay? I think I just love them so much because you can add some instant holiday spirit to your kitchen with them. This traditional fall favorite Pumpkin Pie Hand Towel, is perfect for fall. I love the washed grain sack look and the fact that if I ever wanna know how to make pumpkin pie, I can just read the towel. I'm only slightly kidding. Pretty darn convenient though, right? Ha!

I'm a sucker for signs, and I have them pretty much in every single corner of our house. They're just such a cute and fun way to add a personal touch to a space. I came across this sign and loved it so much! It would be so cute on a kitchen range, a pantry door, or on a kitchen counter for the season! Plus it's only $20! Just give me 4 of them. 

Who knew Amazon had so many goodies? Which one is your favorite? Have you purchased Home Decor from Amazon before? What did you think of it? 

Thank you all so much for stopping in! It means a TON to me and I'm so thankful for all of you. Happy Shopping and Decorating my friends!
