Friday Favorites with the Bargain Blonde!

Oh hey, did you forget about me? Cause I didn’t forget about YOU! 
Linking up with the BB today for Friday Favorites! I haven’t done a linky in FOREVA and thought it would be fun to join in the fun. 

So let’s talk favorites, mmkay? 

1. My new favorite guilty pleasure from CFA. 
2. This dress
which I just ordered from Mod Cloth. I mean just look at it. If that ain’t a PLL dress, then I don’t know what is. 
3. My hairdresser Brittney. 
Yesterday, sissy and I had hair happy hour with Britt, aka the best hairdresser in the world. 
Why do I love Britt?
       a. she does great blonde things
       b. she does not judge the fact that sis and I schedule our appointments together and bring wine
       and c. just look at her, she is a doll! She is like Olivia Wilde but hotter. 
4. Baby sis, and her Pinterest application.
Girlfriends has been home for a bit (surprise!) but she leaves again tomorrow. Sadz. Anyhoo, check out this little number she fashioned from an old men’s shirt. Pinterest inspired obvi. 
Now you college girls need take note: next time you find yourself shacked up and without a proper outfit, just steal his shirt, and voila. You have a new dress to wear to brunch. No more walk of shame, or breakfasting in your outfit from the night before for you 😉 
not that i ever did that. ever. 
5? there is no five. I am just stalking the UPS man for my Erin Condren planer. It was suppose to be ready by now! 
Have a great weekend, TGIF!

    I kind of just love your life. You and your sister are adorable and I love this flannel shirt idea!

  2. I LOVE Chick-fil-a, and I totally dressed up as a cow today!

  3. I love that y'all have the magical agreement of shared appts and wine at the hair did place. 2) I cannot believe there are girls out there who can actually pull off that men's shirt thing. WTG! 3) I meant to comment the other day and say CONGRATS on the launch of your makeup/hair biz. Truly an inspiration. (I'm not a priss like you, but it is SO inspiring that you have found success with something that you love and are going to be able to earn income doing it. I hope that is me with photography one day.) So, CONGRATULATIONS! I'm extra pumped now!

  4. That dress is seriously gorgeous!
    I'm totally envious of your fab hair happy hour with your sis complete with wine.
    Love what she did with the plaid shirt!
    I'd totally dress like a cow if it meant free food.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Umm sista that sandwich looks delish! Where have I been? Also, I feel like I am missing out on a vital friendship bc I don't need highlights. I mean, yes that is good for my wallet but when I go to get my hairs cut it only takes like 30 mins which is not nearly enough chat time with my lovely hair gal.. and there isn't any wine involed. Love your new dress although I am not nearly tan enough for that beauty 🙂

  6. Jessie says:

    Aren't you so excited about your Erin Condren planner?? I'm obsessed.

  7. Kelsey says:

    I love love love that dress! I forget about Modcloth sometimes. I love your baby sis's dress!

  8. Tiffany says:

    I saw that idea on pinterest. It looks super cute on her.

  9. Megan G. says:

    Such a beautiful dress! It definitely seems like you. 🙂 Also, you and your sister are my favorite for bringing wine to a hair appointment.

  10. Your hairdresser does look like Olivia Wilde!

    Love that idea of making a men's shirt into a dress.. who'd a thunk??

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. Jordan says:

    I need that planner. Now.

  12. Shannon says:

    Seeing this about your hair reminded me that my salon serves wine…and I haven't partaken the past couple of times I got my hair done. WHAT is wrong with me??

    Aaaannd I'm gonna need you to go back and swipe Britt's hat for me and pop it in the mail, mmkay?

    Or find out where it's from. Whatever.

  13. Haha you crack me up! The walk of shame is an official induction into college life. Not that I'm proud of it now 0:-)

    You and your sis are too pretty, love your hairdresser ritual.

  14. Shayna says:

    That dress is absolutely adorable! & too funny about the men's shirt dress! Very good point! & Where was Pinterest when we were in college!?

  15. AbbyS. says:

    Totally dressed up all my babes and got free CFA today!!
    All my friends go to Brittney. I guess I need to get with the program!

  16. Okay, blonde question…Do you know which product like she uses to blondify you? I have been trapsing around to different hairdressers and I swear I'm left streaky (shameful) and never blonde enough. Ever.


  17. Jill says:

    Yayyy I have an appt. to see Miz Britt this week! This dress screams PLL and I love it 🙂 Too often, I go in the middle of the day or at a time when I have to go back to work….and while Lord knows I need the wine then more than ever, I also need my job, sooo :-/ I guess I should do a better job scheduling, ha! OH, and my Erin Condren was delivered today! Your should be just around the corner! 🙂

  18. Jen says:

    I ordered from after I saw your previous blog post, and I ordered the Teacher planner. Please post pics when you get it in, I can't wait to see it! 🙂 Love your blog, read it all the time!

    I am loving that dress from ModCloth! And your sister pulled that mens shirt into a dress look! I don't think all girls can look that good doing that!

  23. lori says:

    that dress could not be more perfect for you!

  24. sounds like such a fun way to get your done! Wine and good chat-sounds perfect for me!

  25. Jen Watts says:

    That dress has PLL written all over it.

    I've been keeping up with your blog and am so proud of your accomplishments..and you are always looking beautiful! Glad life is treating you well friend!

  26. Any restaurant that give free food for dressing up on a day that is not Halloween is a favorite of mine.

  27. Jessie says:

    I wish I had a Britt! One of my main goals in life is to find the perfect hair dresser, it's just so darn hard! And you're definitely making me want to try an Erin Condren planner…decisions, decisions!

  28. Alicia says:

    I love how y'all plan your hair adventure! My mom and I do the same thing. I love the time I have with my mom and stylist! It so nice to relax, get beautified, and have girl talk!!
