Normally my Flashback Friday’s posts are personal – I talk about work, school, blogging and family. I thought I would switch it up this week and share some of my favorite things from this week. So thank you for stopping by and take a look below to find out what has been bringing me joy. Especially since you have heard me complain about Mercury Retrograde and life two Friday’s in a row.

Flashback Fridays – What I’m Loving This Week
Beauty & Makeup
NARS Velvet Lip Glide in Toy-Toy Cloaks like a lipstick. Glides like a gloss. Confident color. Covetable comfort.Find out more about NARS Velvet Lip Glide
I am loving the NARS Velvet Lip Glide and want every color but Toy-Toy is by far my favorite color. They are only available until October so make sure you pick up your favorites before they sell out. I am also loving NARS Velvet Lip Glide in Unspeakable – perfect color for fall!
Fashion & Style
The interwebs have been abuzz with NYFW (New York Fashion Week) updates – everywhere that I turned online there were updates to check out. One thing I was super excited about were the plus size models that walked in Christian Siriano’s show along with the launch of his collaboration with Lane Bryant.
I was excited to find out that Sarah Jessica Parker has launched her Italian-made collection SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker which includes shoes, boots, flats, handbags and more. I really loved the SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker Women’s Bobbie Dress Sandal featured in the above image.
Flashback Fridays – More Things I’m Loving This Week
Blogging & Business
As I have been working on new content for the blog I have also been going back and updating old posts when I have time as well. As a blogger I realize that sometimes readers end up at old posts and it is important to keep all posts as updated and/or create a new post that talks about the update – things change, my thoughts change, I learn new things and even though a post may be “old” I would still like it to be as transparent and “current” as it can be.
While going through some of my favorite blogs I came across Katie’s post about How to Update Old Content and it was a nice reminder to go through some posts this week when I had time. I was able to update some older posts and while doing that I was inspired to start working on some other content as well.
I have slowly became addicted to webinars and podcasts. Though I have listened to many different ones there are only a handful that a religiously follow and take notes on. I usually don’t get to listen until the weekend so I usually binge through a couple at a time. The most recent one that I really enjoyed was Myleik Teele’s one titled “How I QUIT My Job! A Chat with Courtney Sanders of ThinkandGrowChick.com” These are two of my favorite women when it comes to business and growing a brand so I was super excited to hear that Myleik was having Courtney Sanders on there. If you are building a brand, are interested in turning that side hustle to a business and leaving that 9 to 5 – listen to this and when you have time listen to their podcasts + visit their websites.

Music & Entertainment
Macy Gray released a new album last week and I am loving what I have heard so far. Her beautifully distinctive raspy voice always gives me good vibes and I somehow ended up on youtube to listen to her singing Christmas songs!! (I loooooove Christmas music by the way)
If you loved Stranger Things on Netflix as much as I did – I’m sure you also enjoyed the soundtrack. Get your fix of 80’s vibes with the Stranger Things – The Complete Fantasy Playlist (Various Artists). You can also pre-order the Stranger Things Soundtrack via Amazon here: Stranger Things Soundtrack Vol. 1 and Stranger Things Soundtrack Vol. 2 (which I just had to add to my Amazon wishlist.)
Speaking of Amazon, I am only now really taking advantage of all the great Amazon Prime Student benefits which aside from the great deals and cool shipping options includes exclusive movie, music and Kindle book options. According to Amazon “As a Prime member, you get unlimited access to over a million songs and hundreds of custom-built playlists for FREE.”
I have been enjoying the available playlists and making my own as well – you can even add music from your own computer. Not only can I stream music at no additional cost there are so many movies and shows that I can stream as well. If you have an Amazon Prime account (or don’t have one at all) and are a student I would highly recommend signing up for a Amazon Prime Student account – so many great benefits and it costs less than the normal Amazon Prime account! Amazon Student is the way to go!
Thank you again for stopping by! I hope that you had a wonderful week and enjoy your weekend. Let me know in the comments what you have been loving lately!
