Friday Favorites : Chanel, Yankee Candle, and SERIAL


Hey everyone! It’s the end of the week again and I decided to do a post on some things I’ve really been into lately.

1. Serial Podcast
Have you guys heard of the podcast Serial? I have never listened to a podcast before, but my husband JJ really wanted me to listen to this podcast. Well, now I’m hooked. A little background about me- I don’t really like TV, and I rarely like to watch movies- but podcasts are really cool, because you just listen! The Serial podcast is about a murder committed in 1999 between two high school students. The lady that does the podcast is investigating the case, because she thinks that the case should be reopened. Now, normally, this would not interest me. Dramas aren’t my thing. I don’t like hearing about crime, or anything gory, but this is not like that at all. She talks to the people involved, and it’s so interesting. I’m hooked now. It’s got like 1.5 million listeners now or something! Check it out. It’s nice to just lay in bed and listen to at night.



2. My Erin Condren Planner
I love this planner so much! I am not a technology person- I am a write-it-down type of person. This planner is just perfect for all my needs. It breaks up each day into 3 sections, and has extra room on each day to write little notes. It also comes with stickers and a customizable cover. I use this everyday!


3. Yankee Candle North Pole candle
This candle just reminds me of Christmas. It is a blend of peppermint and vanilla, and it smells just like peppermint bark. Yankee candles are some of my favorites because they burn for really long time and they smell up the whole room!


4. LUNA Bar in Chocolate Peppermint Stick
Sometimes, being a mom of two, you don’t exactly have time to sit down and eat a meal. I like to eat these bars during the day or on the go. This flavor is really good and is festive for Christmas. These have a lot of vitamins, fiber, and they give me a boost of energy and take away my hunger. My favorite kind is the iced oatmeal raisin, but I am thinking it has been discontinued- I can’t find it anywhere!


5. MAC Blush in Plumfoolery
This is a great natural blush for fall/winter. It is a dusty plum (duh) color with a slight shimmer. It goes on sheer, but is buildable. It gives a nice flush to my cheeks – I’ve been wearing it almost everyday!


6. Chanel Gloss in Mirage

This gloss is a mauve- rose colored gloss with microglitter. I love the formula of these glosses, (I mean, it’s Chanel) they are not sticky at all, and actually last on my lips.


7. Julep nail polish in Queen Anne
This nail polish is a gorgeous, lavender glitter topcoat. Unlike a lot of glitter topcoats I own, this one is chock full of glitter and you don’t need a million coats for it to look super sparkly!

Have you tried any of these products?
Do you listen to SERIAL??!! let me know in the comments!

Thanks for reading!

  1. I have been hearing about Serial and going “What the heck is that?” haha. Good to know!! The North Pole candle sounds like it’d be sooo yummy smelling 😀 I adore candles. Love the planner, too! I totally need one.

  2. I was debating ordering an Erin Condren planner when I first discovered them, and to be honest completely forgot all about it until now! Thanks for reminding me … Gonna have to order mine soon!!
