What I'm Loving...

Happy Friday!
Anyone have exciting plans for the weekend? Jared's youngest brother is turning 21 so, God help us, I think we're going down tonight to help him "celebrate" aka "make ourselves feel really old and elderly" tonight. I'll, uhh, keep you updated on that.
Here's what I'm loving:


Coral Makeup
It started about a month ago when I won Bren's contest and received 2 products from the Bobbi Brown Cabana Corals collection. Then last week I picked up Jazzed from MAC's In the Groove Collection. Now you might say I have a slight obsession. (Ok, I'm also a big fan of Benefit's Coralista but... you know, let's just stop now, this is getting out of control.) Coral is so universally flattering, and beautiful, and perfect and summery, and livens up pretty much every skin tone - you love it, right? Right. Thinking about doing a makeup post or two (or 12...) featuring it. Yeah...


Friends
I'm aware that it went off the air in 2004, so stop judging me. You can catch re-runs of it, like, any time you turn on the TV though, so sometimes in the afternoon I'll watch it. And I laugh like it's the 90's again. This What I'm Loving... is aging me, isn't it? Anyway, a few days ago the episode was on where Ross wants to play the bagpipes for Monica and Chandler's wedding, so he's learning "Celebrate" on it, and at the end he's trying to get them to sing along, and Phoebe... oh, here's the clip on YouTube (it won't let me embed). HILARIOUS, no? Yeah, I just watched it again. I'm laughing... again. Give me a minute, k?


Radiohead - Amnesiac
I bought the Collector's Edition of this on iTunes this past week because I wanted the studio and live version of Like Spinning Plates. Yes, I could have just bought those 2 songs, but the whole album is worth it because 1) it's Radiohead 2) for some reason I didn't have this in my collection yet. The 2 versions of Like Spinning Plates have been played almost 50 times so far. I'm not kidding. Go listen now, it's an amazing song and a great album. 


NYX Glitter Liner
I would never in a million year thought I needed glitter eye liner, until I saw it used on Pixiwoo's makeup channel. I can't find the exact video now, but basically they put on mascara, then put the glitter liner on TOP so that they had sparkly lashes. GENIUS. I immediately ran out and bought some NYX glitter liner. It's eye-catching (no pun intended... ok maybe), but not in an over the top way. Anyone could do this and get away with it - plus it's fun!


Ok, so that's What I'm Loving right now! What about you?

I love corals for summer too! Especially for nail polish, that's probably my favorite way to wear it :)

I love coral makeup- no matter what, it always looks good!!

Other than that, my boyfriend and I are loving this crazy BBC show from a few years ago called The Mighty Boosh. It's this crazy comedy show that makes no sense.....and yet I can't seem to stop watching it.....
