As I'm sure many of you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and this cause is especially close to my heart because it was my sorority's philanthropy! So I wanted to dedicate this Friday Favorites post to the all-about-pink pretties I have my eye on! 

How cute is this watermelon lip balm popsicle?! I need it to add to my obsessive collection of lip balms!

Buy this Loft Cowl Neck Tunic NOW...You can thank me later because it will be THE softest tunic you wear all winter. I wore mine today ;)

Isn't the bottling on this bubble bath beautiful? It would make me feel extra fancy and special soaking after a long day!

I hope y'all enjoyed this little pink round-up! More importantly, I hope this helps you remember to be vigilant about doing regular breast self exams, scheduling your mammograms, and reminding your family and friends to do the same!

Happy hump day, lovelies! 

This past weekend D & I decided to have a date night in and try out a few new cocktails! D went with a classic Manhattan which really wasn't my style, but I decided to give a Bay Breeze a try- colorful, fruity, and sweet- my three must-haves in a drink ;) It was absolutely delicious so I wanted to share the super simple recipe! 

Bay Breeze
1 1/2 oz. coconut rum {I used Malibu}
2 oz. cranberry juice
2 oz. pineapple juice
ice to shake
dash of lime juice
lime peel and pinapple to garnish

1. Add the ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and...SHAKE! ;)
2. Rub lime onto the rim of cocktail glasses and dip in sugar.
3. Pour drink into your glasses and garnish with lime and pineapple.

It's the perfect drink to reward yourself with for making it to the halfway point of your week! You go, girl!

"Give a woman the right lipstick, and she can conquer the world!"
Ladies, is this true or is this true? One of my favorite ways to welcome fall into my wardrobe {because you know we won't be getting real fall weather in Texas for another few weeks} is to bring out my fall lip colors! Berry, wine, cool nudes, anything that speaks fall, you better believe I will have on these lips o' mine. 

Here are my top fall go-to lippy's this season!

A vampy dark that instantly brings an added sultry element to your look | Revlon Super Lustrous Lipcolor in Black Cherry

A sheer wine color that is a perfect transition into your fall wardrobe | Lipstick Queen Saint Sheer in Berry

A beautiful, matte dark red that is always classic | NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella

A gorgeous orangey hue that brings a bright fall pop to an outfit | NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick

A blushy nude that can be an every day go to and look classy and feminine | Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope in Star System

What favorite fall hues are you wearing on your lips? I'd love to hear about some new to try out!
