Friday’s Favorite Things - 3.1.13


Can’t believe we’re in March already.  Crazy how fast time flies.  I am finally off to the Riviera Maya, a place I've been yearning to visit for so long.  I’m so excited to eat “real” Mexican food and drink!  I’ll fill you in on all my food & lodging details of my Mayan Escape once I return.  Please wish us (hubbs & I) safe travels and that we don’t fall sick when in Mexico.  Hope you guys all have a fabulous weekend!  And here are today’s Friday’s Favorites!


1. Ankle-Length Pants @ H&M (black)
On a working day during our lunch break, my friend K and I headed to H&M.  I spotted these fitted Ankle-Length Pants in black which fit me perfectly.  Pair these off with a nice pair of pumps and a clutch and off you go.  It's all about the shoes and bag in this outfit.  In addition to black, I’m loving these pants in floral and white polka dots on blue.  These pants come in at a bargain price of  ~ $25 @ H&M (black)


2. 2” Stretch Cotton Sailor Shorts @ Express (black)
I can’t tell you how tough it was to shop for summer clothes this past week.  There is nothing out there for summer except for a couple items in every store.  It really was hit or miss.  At Express, I loved these sailor shorts that are fitted and not super tight.  Although these shorts are super short, I am going to the beach, and my philosophy is if it still fits, enjoy it!  YOLO!!!  (you only live once)   ~ $40 @ Express (black cotton, pitch black linen)


3. Beautiful Anniversary Roses from my husband
Celebrated 4 years this past week and the mystifying journey of marriage continues.  It’s a tough one to unravel, but I’m still trying.  :-)favorites 027


BONUS:
My niece, Jasmin, is quite the singer.  She takes piano and voice lessons.  Lately she’s been posting videos of herself on Facebook using a plastic cup for beats, beats that she comes up with in 10 minutes.  I’m so proud of her and how far she has come along with voice control and all.  Personally, I love her voice (I'm biased) and I’m proud to share with you Jasmin singing… Sunday Morning by Maroon 5.  Enjoy!

  1. The secret is going to be a never-ending list, so let me just tell about your niece's video instead :D Great job!! How old is she?

  2. Woo hoo about your upcoming holiday- how long are you away for? Can't wait to hear about it! Those H & M pants look so flattering...perfect length for spring too!

    This week I am loving coconut water! I went through a phase of drinking it regularly but then stopped! I forgot how much I enjoy it and drinking out of the coconut makes it that much more enjoyable!

  3. I can't wait to hear about your vacation. I really want to vacation there sometime soon!

    And I'm currently on a shopping ban but as soon as May hits, I'm buying those short, in about 3 different colors...LOVE!

    And in my "I've only been married 7 months" opinion, I think the secret to a good marriage is to laugh...a lot! :)

  6. Jasmin is amazing! She's so cute too. Has she thought of American Idol or X Factor?

    I've been married almost 13 years and I'm still trying to unravel the mystery my friend. Have the best time in Mexico...you will look fantastic in the shorts, I'm sure.

    Regarding blissful marriage, I don't know the all the secrets, as I am learning them with time, but one sure thing is the ability to make each other laugh!

    Awaiting to see pics of your trip and feedback on lodging etc.

  11. @Khushboo - We will be away for 5 days.. the H&M pants are very flattering. I tried Coconut Water once and didn't love it for some reason, perhaps I need to give it another shot.

  25. @Kiran - thanks. Jasmin is so adorable and talented, I agree! I hope all these comments will encourage her to sing for a bigger audience. I never got into Coconut Water - the Vita stuff, I think it tastes more authentic on the beaches. :)
