Friday Favorites & Catch Ups!

Hey beauties! Every week I'm all, "I can't believe it's time for Friday Favorites again, already." and this week is no different, seriously, before we know it Christmas will be here. GASP. Did I just say the word Christmas? I so did, I can't help it. I was up late last night pinning Christmas decor and cussing myself the whole time. I knew what I was doing was totally wrong but I couldn't stop myself. HA! I totally believe we rush things but Christmas is just THE best and I like to enjoy it for as long as possible, ya know? That being said, I do love Halloween so, I'm taking a breather and reminding myself to enjoy the moment that I'm in right now instead of worrying and stressing about what's ahead. I really struggle with that sometimes and need to take a step back and take note of my current surroundings. 

This week was a good week, it got away from me before I was even able to blink, but I did finally get the house sort of spooky for Halloween. I also had a few extra minutes to throw a tablescape together, and I was really in love with how it turned out. It was raining almost everyday so Nick didn't have football and my motivation wasn't on high but I still managed to knock some stuff off the to do list. 

So many goodies to share with you guys today! I always try to do a little research on the weeks stats and most liked posts to share the things that you guys either ask about the most, or things that are purchased the most. That way I don't end up sharing random things that you guys care NOTHING about. Ha! 

Okay so let's get started, I shared this space on Instagram and got asked a ton about the bats, I found mine here and we used them everywhere here at our "Haunted Farmhouse" Sav had so much fun pretty much plastering them any and everywhere she could. 

I've been using clothing in my home decor for awhile, and some of you are probably like, "Laurie, what on earth are you talking about, have you just completely lost your mind?" and the answer is yes, yes I have..BUT Scarves make awesome home decor! I've used them to add some pattern and color to buffet table displays, porch decor and even, most recently as a table runner on our dining room table. I used this one and I love the colors for fall, but they'd also work really week if you're planning to do a neutral theme for Christmas! Or you could even do something crazier, like you know, WEAR IT. 
I also managed to snag some fresh eucalyptus from my gramma, we don't have any grocery stores or flower shops really that sell it around here, unfortunately, and if you're like me, then fake is the next best thing, these stems are the next best thing and the good thing about the faux is that it never dies and you can use it forever! Honestly, it's a win win! 

I wasn't able to find my exact black & white check hand towel but I did find something similar here and here.
Moving on to this weeks style deals, I just have to share every time I find a good deal on T-Shirts, and this gray one is now a basic staple in my wardrobe. I have soooo many tee's it's disturbing but I'm really picky about them, I don't like them to be too baggy, or too tight, and I don't like the sleeves to be too long or too short and I don't like when they're scratchy or not soft. See, I'm not kidding when I told you I'm picky. But I found this cute washed v-neck shirt and it is absolutely perfect! I also snagged it in pink. Even better is that it's on sale through the weekend for $15!

I am obsessing so hard over these bralettes

They are SO pretty and actually give ya a little lift, ya know what I'm saying? I just bought it in black and maroon and can't wait to wear them! They're so cute under sweaters and the perfect layering piece. Maybe one day soon it'll be cool enough to actually wear sweaters here? Until then I just layer them under my t-shirts and I love that they aren't bumpy even with the cute lace pattern. 

And because ya'll know I live in black leggings I just have to share every time my favorite leggings go on sale! You guys, these are $12!!! 
The quality is amazing, they're super comfy and NOT see through and the best part is that they suck you in in all the right places. I'm not ashamed to admit, mama needs a little bit of that. There are several colors available, not just black! So pop over and check em out- here. YOU SERIOUSLY WILL LOVE THEM and you can't beat the price, if you buy them you HAVE to let me know what you think! 

I LIVE in this gray hoodie with thumb holes! Even though its sold out in gray (bummer) they still have several colors available, the black & white striped one is super cute! It's so soft and comfy without being hot. I have it in pink, gray and black. A must if you love comfies! 

Last week I shared my absolute favorite booties, like ever. I have a hard time finding booties that aren't stiff and that move with me, these are literally like walking on a cloud and so amazing! I absolutely love them! They're a little pricier than what I typically spend on shoes, but SO worth it and the fact that they're on sale helps! 

You can check them out, and see all the colors here. 

Now I have to go finish up painting the master bedroom so that hopefully I can have the big reveal for you here on the blog sometime next week! I can't wait to share it with you! I've been working with so many little shops that I think you guys will just LOVE! 

Whew, that was a lot. I told you it was a busy week. But seriously, so many good deals and finds, right? I'm so excited to share all sorts of my life with you and just want to thank you all so much for being so accepting of the changes I've brought to the blog and Instagram the past few weeks. I honestly can't thank you all enough for your support, always! 

Happy Weekend!
