Friday Favorites

nehbeauty happy

Hi lovelies, can you tell I’m excited it’s Friday? Ha! I’m so pumped for the weekend, and hoping for some bright weather.

I’m only a little over 5 weeks away from my Indian wedding now so I am starting to get busy again with final preparations! I can’t believe it’s almost here, I’m sort of nervous, but actually getting more excited. I’m also relieved that I’m NOT nervous, or at least not as much as I thought I’d be. My job is getting a little more busy too, so as you can imagine, anything that helps me stay organized these days is a huge plus.

I’m also getting back into healthier eating and a small workout first thing in the morning. This really helps me with my mood and stress and keeps me feeling upbeat and positive all day. So, that gives you a sense of what might be on my mind these days. And therefore, here’s what I’ve been loving lately!

Fun Blog templates by SoloPine.com

I’ve been writing a lot more and falling in love with blogging all over again these days. I first started a blog back in 2009 (oh yes!) and I’ve learned so much since then! But one of my top tips that I give to new bloggers is, don’t worry about spending money on a custom site or look, there are so many amazing theme designers out there selling their templates in the $25-$75 range! If you’re newly starting out you should check out SoloPine, which is where I got my current theme from. Their themes come with many options you can turn on and off, so you can customize your look, without paying for a custom site.

My Nike Tanjuns

Good lord, I am tired this week! I have been running around a lot lately and I have to be comfy when I’m busy! My Nikes are my go-to shoe when I just need to get it together, do a lot, but still look cute. I have just about worn these out! I could use a new pair, but still love these!

Popsockets

I’m a little late to this trend, but I came across one of these at PaperSource a few weeks ago. It sticks to the back of your phone and can pop out to serve as a stand for your phone to watch videos, or you can tuck it between your fingers so that you’re less likely to drop it. At first I was totally skeptical, and it didn’t love how it felt in my hand, so it took some getting used to. But now I absolutely love it because it’s more comfortable than have the whole weight of my phone basically on my pinky! I definitely like having it on there as a handle, and indeed, have dropped it far less than I used to. Check these out!

My Chanel Pin!

Now this one doesn’t help me stay organized or anything like, but it DOES instantly boost my mood 🙂 How could I not include my beloved Chanel pin?! I’ve been talking about it all over my blog lately, but what can I say, it’s just a classic piece that dazzles me every time. Love! Full deets on my experience shopping for it and my unboxing video here! And here’s a similar one to check out as well.
