Fab Fridays

Happy Friday!  TGIF!  It's Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday!  OK I'm done now.  

Today I am linking up with Laura for a little FAB Friday action.  Basically share things that make this day/week fabulous!  Easy enough!  She used to do this link-up a while back and then quit so I'm really glad she started again because it's nice to reflect and share fabulous things every once in a while!

I have a few things I want to share this week, in the form of some recent fab finds!  Who doesn't like hearing about new, great products and stores?  Plus, once I find something that I love, I love to share it and promote it!  So, without further ado, this is what I'm finding fabulous on this fine Friday.

Up first, my number one go to store for all hair clippies for Miss KP.  One Little Monkey is hands-down my favorite place to get all of Kendall's hair accessories.  The quality is awesome but the uniqueness is what has me sold!  Every time KP wears one of her clips she gets tons of compliments and I cannot tell you how many business cards I have handed out.  LOVE, love, LOVE.  Even Jimmy is obsessed with her owl clippies {good thing because I just ordered more!}.  She also has super cute headbands, if only Kendall would tolerate a headband...I'd be all over that like white on rice!

I know I am on a shopping ban, I know it, but good God if these last few weeks haven't made me desperate for some retail therapy.  Yesterday was the day I cracked.  I have been in need of a new purse for weeks.  I no longer carry a diaper bag {for now} and the purse I've been carrying just isn't enough for all of my stuff plus Kendall's diapers, wipe case, snacks, princess toys {why did I stop carrying a diaper bag again?}.  I found this beauty and instantly fell in love, I mean what's not to love?  The size, the color, the fact that it can be a shoulder bag OR a cross body.  What I did not love was the price-tag but leave it to my BBFF to convince me that I needed it and I was sold.  It's everything I was looking for in a bag and the reviews were amazing. I'm pretty sure this will be a bag I carry for a long time.  How's that for justification? I could basically convince myself that I needed this just as much as I need my right arm.

And, a little self-promotion {hey!  it's been a while, admit it!}, but I got this new eye shadow quad from Avon this week and I'm lovin' it.  So much I had to HeyTell my BBFF the minute I used it to tell her how wonderful it was/is.  It's the perfect color palette for me.  I wear it a bit softer during the day, like, you know, one day a week that I actually wear makeup.  And I can slather it on a bit darker, you know, if I want to go out on the town with my main squeeze {who says that these days?}.  The colors are great, it lasts forever and the price is unbeatable {$5.99 right now!}.  I have a couple of other eye shadow quads but none compare to this one {smokey eyes}.  I love it.  And, yes, I'd say that even if I weren't selling it.  

So that's what I'm finding fah-bu-lous on this Friday.  Head on over to Laura's neck of the woods and share your fabulous Friday!


  1. this is fun. maybe I'll stop doing friday five and do this. no one links up anyway.

  2. I'm with you on the needing a new purse. I actually went looking for one yesterday but was unsuccessful. I'll just have to keep browsing for one :). Happy Friday!!

  3. I need a new purse in the worst way.

  4. I like those eye shadows. Do you have a link to your avon?

    I love love love that purse. I need it in my life.. Unfortunately my husband would probably have a stroke. ;)

  5. No I'm going to have to go thru my daughter's closet and pick matching hair clips. So cute!

  6. Oh man, love the purse! I have been wanting a crossbody bag...I wonder if I can find a coupon code! My Mom gave me a Fossil bag from the vintage collection for my birthday and wow am I in love with it!

  7. I want a Coach crossbody bag but I can't bring myself to purchase it, maybe one day when I get those sale emails and they are extra cheap... Probably not.. Happy Friday!

  8. Thanks for linking up, friend. :)

    I so need a little girl to get Carey's cute designs. I always love them. I guess we'll know in a few days. That may be one of my first purchases. :)

    I love me some Avon eyeshadows. But really, most of my make-up products are Avon...not just because I sell, but because I think they're the best.

  9. LOOOOVE the bag! Crossbody is the way to go, that way it won't fall off your shoulder when bending down to pick up your sweet KP!
