It’s been awhile since I’ve done a true Friday Favorites post so I have built up some favorites.

  • I haven’t put together a true list of resolutions this year but one of my goals is to learn calligraphy and hand lettering. I’ve been searching Pinterest for inspiration, as you do, but today I decided to search the “#handlettering” hashtag on Instagram. IT IS AWESOME. If you want to be inspired, I suggest you do it. So many talented artists.

  • In December, I caved and bought a few palettes I had my eye on for a long time: Urban Decay’s Vice 3 and Smoked.

Vice 3smokedBecause there are only so many days in December, I haven’t had the chance to use all of them yet but I have been experimenting with Vice 3 more and I love it. There are so many beautiful neutrals and I love all the pinks and burgandies. But there is a color in Smoked called Mushroom that I love also. I like that Smoked came with Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer and their eyeliner in Perversion. Because of some snafus at Ulta, I got this palette for $10. I was pleased with that value.

  • Songza: I only recently discovered Songza. After being a Pandora/Spotify girl for years, I guess this just never made it into my awareness. However, Songza is the best. After using it for just a couple days, I got rid of my Pandora ONE account. I really hate ads, and so that is why I was willing to pay for Pandora ONE but Songza has almost no audible ads. I hear perhaps one a day when I am just turning on Songza but then that’s it. I see some visible ones on the app but that doesn’t bother me when I’m jamming out to my Feeling Good in the 90’s playlist. I highly recommend you check out Songza if you haven’t already. I think you’ll like it. 🙂
  • I’m also still obsessed with The Skimm– my weekday news source. I have become much more aware of things going on in the world since signing up for this email. I have never really been too interested in the news before but this medium has really helped me stay focused and follow important stories. Clicking the link will give me credit for referring people which will… I think make me superior in The Skimm world? I’m not entirely sure. But I want to be superior in The Skimm world, so please click that link if you are interested in signing up for The Skim yourself!
