It’s Friday! I cannot wait to veg out tonight and then spend Saturday with my friend Paula for her birthday. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Have you entered my giveaway yet for a Lux Divine handmade turquoise cuff? The giveaway runs through Tuesday so don’t miss out. I’m totally obsessed with mine and I think you need one too! Here are a few things that brought me happiness this week in pictures:

20120809-145310.jpg{After seeing this dress featured on Poor Little It Girl, I just had to have it. Luckily Gap was giving 30% off all full-priced items that day. Score!}

20120809-145317.jpg{I found this mirror buried in the back of a closet this week and decided it would make the perfect glamorous necklace holder for our master bath. I got this at TJ Maxx a few years ago for $20.}

20120809-145341.jpg{A large group of us went to the Gavin Degraw and Colbie Caillat concert at the zoo this week. Between awesome company, delicious food and fantastic music it was a really great night.}

20120809-145349.jpg{Found this picture of my Pi Phi sorority sisters and me on our 2006 Vegas trip. Our feet were blistered and literally bleeding (I seriously still have a scar on my foot from the deepest blister!) from a long night of dancing the night away in cheap heels so we made a foot bath and ended up playing around in here for quite a while. Such a wonderful trip, Love you girls!}

Happy Friday lovelies! I’m looking forward to a weekend of Olympics, reading and hanging out with good friends. Here a few highlights from this past weekend and this week in pictures!

20120802-135107.jpg{Saturday day was spent with my good friend Megan getting manicures for her birthday and sipping on pink champagne! Megan is on the left wearing Essie Nice is Nice and I’m sporting Essie Lapis of Luxury.}

20120802-135118.jpg{Saturday night we had a double date with friends and saw Savages. Loved it! It was nearly as good as the book! I was excited to wear my new Forever21 dress that I got during their BOGO sale, which ends on Sunday. It cost me $12 and the bright blazer adds a touch of polish to a casual summer dress.}

20120802-135130.jpg{Sunday we had dinner with some family and got to see the adorable twins Finn & Oliver. Love these little guys!}

20120802-135139.jpg{I kept things natural and sheer this week with Essie Mademoiselle, one of most award-winning nail polish shades of all time.}

20120802-135148.jpg

{My nightly skincare routine gets a dose of excitement with Lush Bubblegum lip scrub. Seriously hooked on this stuff. It preps my lips for all the lipstick I wear during the day.}

{Dresses are the way to go during this heat, ugh. Loving my Gap dress I got on sale and my Lux Divine cuff and necklace (similar necklace here). Stay tuned for a Lux Divine giveaway on my blog this month!}

20120802-135303.jpg{I had lunch at my mom’s house this week and got to visit with her horses. This is Star.}

20120802-135556.jpg{Fresh flowers instantly add life and charm to a home. These yellow tulips from Trader Joe’s have really brightened my week.}

{We redecorated the master bath this week! I don’t have a before picture to show you but picture a gold shower curtain and pink towels…sick. We just used what we both had previously when we moved in together and it was a heinous mix that we’ve always been too lazy to change. The new bathroom decor makes it feel bigger and brighter. Shower curtain from Target.}

What made you happy this week?

20120712-114449.jpg{Having a clean Bo Bo.  Nothing like snuggling up with a clean, fluffy doggy.  This is the best dog shampoo EVER.}

{My absolutely stunning handmade turquoise cuff from Lux Divine Jewelry that I won!}
