Favorite Things Friday

It’s been a while since I wrote one of these posts but there are a bunch of things I’ve been crushing on that I think you might love, too. DYING to know what they are? Well of course you are.

Remember when we were all jumping for joy when the new Keurig 2.0 came out? And then we cried because we couldn’t use our old k-cups or reusable k-cups with it? Well, those days are over because look what I found on Amazon. The Eco-Carafe for Keurig 2.0 is my new BFF. And for those of you who don’t do carafes – they have the regular sized cup as well. Sigh. It’s the little things.

crochet mermaid tail pattern

My friend Anna sent me the link to this Crochet Mermaid Tail Blanket Pattern recently, I had the sudden urge to make one. Or twenty. I mean, what girl wouldn’t want one of these? I’m considering re-opening my Etsy store for the holidays and these will definitely be on the list if I do.

younique makeup brushes

If you follow me on or , you will know about my new obsession with all things Younique. I’m happy to talk to you FOR DAYS about their amazing mascara, but the thing I’m really loving this week are their makeup brushes.

cold brew coffee

A couple of weeks ago, I tried the new cold brew coffee at Starbucks. It’s delish. Unfortunately, it’s not really an option for me to run by there for my daily cup so I started wondering if maybe I could make my own. Turns out, I can and it’s ridiculously easy. I followed this recipe from Kitchen Treaty. I usually do a little less water than the 1:1 ratio suggested in the post and serve with TJ’s light canned coconut milk. So good there aren’t even words.

So, tell us, what are your favorite things this week?

    I need the Keurig thing. I’m rocking some orange stickers that trick the sensor, but OMG why can this coffee machine just be easy already.

    AND THAT MERMAID TAIL! I still love it. Julia saw this pic. She said, “DID SHE REALLY TURN INTO A MERMAID?” Yes. Yes she did.
