What I'm Loving...

Happy Friday! Is Friday unanimously the favorite day of the week, or is that Saturday? Eh, both are pretty good if you ask me.
Here's what I'm loving:


Essie Mink Muffs
This falls into the "griege" nail polish family, which I quickly became obsessed with probably a year and a half ago. Nail polish in this color family almost always looks unflattering in the bottle, but is gorgeous when you put it on. Like I noted on TwitPic, the Mink Muffs is very close to Chanel Particuliere, which is nearly impossible to get (or it was in stores a few months ago, you can still find it online though.) Mink Muffs is $8 though and Particuliere is $25, so run out and get it if you love these colors!


Roots Only
When Roots Only offered to send me one of these, I thought why not. Having your hair colored gets pretty pricey so I try to touch it up at home, but it gets extremely messy (or maybe that's just me...). Ok, this completely solves that problem. No mess and you can apply color exactly where you want (i.e. you REALLY CAN just touch up the roots, something I've never been able to do at home). You can buy one online, and they're re-usable. 


Olivia Wilde at the Golden Globes
I know there was some debate over it, but Olivia Wilde in Marchesa gets my vote for best dressed at the Golden Globes (I'm sure you care).  This dress was stunning and maybe it's the Southern Belle in me (yeah right), but I don't think it's too big at alllllll. I'd let Marchesa loan it to me whenever they wanted :)


New Magazines
My current magazine reading needed a shake-up. My subscription to Lucky ran out (which I can't decide if I'm missing or not), and when Glamour and Marie Claire run out I don't think I'm subscribing to them anymore. That leaves InStyle and Allure (love both of them), but I need to add some more to the mix. So far I've added Vogue, Elle and Vanity Fair (I ended up getting Vogue and a lot of times Elle anyway) and I'm pretty sure I want to add Harper's Bazaar, too. Thoughts? Any others I'm missing? And yes, I read them all! 


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

Mink muffs is my go to fall/winter toe color - such a great neutral!

MarchMusings said...

You know I had the same hang up about Olivis's dress- I loved most of it except the volumet. That was a bit much even for the red carpet.

Krystal said...

I saw essie in the store for the first time recently and really liked their selection!

sacramento said...

Fabulous dress together with the Armani wore by Hathaway.

These are all pretty good magazines. I've always liked Harpers Bazaaar.

A couple weeks ago I came across a magazine called "The Hub"-it's brand new, they just released their first issue. It's AWESOME, though it's not like a traditional magazine, it has a lot more articles to read (probably why I like it) then editorials. Also it covers world travel (there was an AMAZING article about Dubai!) and food. The first issue is called "never never land"

Have you ever read Lula? You might really like that. I'm not sure where you're located, it's a magazine based in the UK but I've been able to find a couple issues here.

It's so inspiring!

Hope that helps!

Ah love magazines but mine are in stacks...I just get so behind. My neighbor and I subscribe to different magazines and then we swap. I am giving up a few subscriptions too like Self, Shape, and my Food Network magazines.

Grit and Glamour said...

Dang, that nail polish bottle gets me every time! As soon as I see it in Bloglovin' I have to click!

RE: magazines. I get a few, but the best are 1. Harper's Bazaar. and 2. Elle. Vogue is good, but sometimes I find it a little too out there. Bazaar editorials and content make me giddy with delight monthly. It's really very good.

Must be the southern belle in me too b/c I loved Olivia's dress!
I let my Lucky run out and didn't renew for almost 2 years. I recently subscribed again and am so ticked I missed out on all that time. I love the website/blog sources... I think you might miss it ;) I'm a Real Simple, MS Living, InStyle, Allure, Lucky Girl! The rest I peruse online.

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

That is a beautiful color! Perfect to warm up drab winter wardrobes.

Josie said...

I love that Mink Muffs polish -- so pretty! And I thought Olivia Wilde looked absolutely amazing.

I'm loving the bottle of bubbly waiting for me in my fridge, and the fact that my sweetheart and I got to spend a little time together this morning!

As for your glossy reads, I might suggest adding W-I think it's a gorgeous publication, and a little more edgy than some of the others.

modanista junkie said...

Simply lovely! I love Essie nail polishes too! Aren't they amazing?! :)

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

So agree about greige...it always looks a little toe-tag in the bottle but not on nails :)

And I LOVED Olivia at the GGs. I thought she totally rocked that dress!

Happy weekend, honey! xoxo

You'll be so proud I got Vanity Fair too! Now you may still have me on the fence about Harpers Bazaar. I give it till the end of the weekend till I've ordered that too.

I just got my nails done with that color! Always a go-to... Love it!

I think Friday is my favorite day - it feels more optimistic with the entire weekend ahead of me!

Harper's Bazaar is my favorite. And I actually really do enjoy Lucky.

Oh, My Darling said...

I'm equally obsessed with that great shade of nail polish.

Audrey Allure said...

I love when new magazines arrive in my mailbox :) And Olivia was gorgeous at the Globes!

Connie @ Sogni e Sorrisi said...

Loving the Mink polish. New magazines make me feel all warm and fuzzy...as does brand new make-up packaging.

A La Mode et Plus! said...

Elle is my ultimate favorite magazine!! And I love that essie polish.

Jenny said...

I did a major magazine dump about 2 years ago. Just let all mine run out. I then decided which ones I really missed. Right now I get Bazaar, Vogue, Allure, Lucky, Self, Health, Fast Company, W, Real Simple, InStyle. I get most of these with airline miles, I only paid for a couple outright. I have been extremely disappointed in Lucky lately and W stinks with the new Editor in chief. Thinking about getting Elle again. I have a magazine problem :o)

I need that Essie color!

Cherisse @ [Framing Spaces] said...

the dress is stunning! I love it!

I am loving that nail polish as well, but I really want the nude Chanel one....
