FRIDAY FAVORITES

Hello Friday, we meet again! πŸ™‚

Even though you’re rainy, I don’t even care because Friday is bliss.

Today I’m nixing 52 Week Blog Challenge because the topic is “My Scariest Experience“.Β And quite frankly, I can’t really think of one.

Maybe it was the time Renee and I were driving through a Dunkin Donuts drive-thru and one of us spotted a spider in her car and I literally jumped out, mind you, in the pouring rain because hello?!?! I ain’t got time for creepy 8 legged creatures. Her and I jumped into the back seat and called her brother in hopes that he would drive ALL the way to DD’s and kill it for us. He didn’t.Β 

But anyways, instead this post is dedicated to my favorite alliteration

FRIDAY FAVORITESΒ 

1. MAXI SKIRTS

This is the perfect weather and time to break out the maxi skirts. I love them because not only can you wear them in several different ways but they’re SO COMFORTABLE!

This one has a slit down the side of it, like so2

So I typically lift the ‘not slit side’ up and tuck it into the waist band and wear it like this1

And when it gets cooler at night I untuck it and wear it like normal3

2.Β ULTA HAUL

2

I’m still excited about my Ulta Haul that I posted about yesterday.

I just want to mention that I did try the LASH SENSATIONAL on my bare lashes and the results? I LOVE IT. People do not give drug-store make up enough credit. I’m so glad I didn’t spend $23 on the BTS Mascara (even though I love it).Β But this one works wonderfully on my lashes. A+ for Lash Sensational

I also want to say that I definitely 100% love the Fiona Stiles Blush as well. If you missed yesterday’s photo of it, here you go πŸ™‚6

3. GIRLBOSS

6I’m actually really sad to say that I’m almost done with this series already. I think I have two episodes left and I don’t want it to end!!! Please Netflix God’s, let there be a season 2.

4. A GIRL CAN DREAM COLLAB

I’m still in love with this collab idea that JacqueliineJoy and I put together. If you haven’t joined in already you still can! This months topic is: DREAM HOME

Last months topic was: DREAM WEDDING

5. LULUS.COM

1

I am obsessive over this site. (LULUS.com) I love every.single.thing. Granted, I only buy 1 or 2 things at a time just for finance reasons but I just can’t stop won’t stop. PS- they have spontaneous free shipping days so look out for those!

6. CALIFORNIA

4

I just recently mentioned of me and Andrew’s California trip. Guys, I’m sorry but I am just so excited- this girl is in dire need of a vacation. Getting through work this month is gonna be tough because that’s ALL I can think about.

If you are in the SAN DIEGO, SAN FRANCISCO, SANTA CLARA, or SAN JOSE area please send me suggestions of places (hot spots and scenic views that only locals would know of), restaurants, cafes, and most importantly donut shops!

I hope everyone has a fantastic Cinco De Mayo- be safe my friends!

xo, JJ

    Hey girll!!! I loved your post today! That Lulus haul is adorbs and I completely agree – I love that website too! It’s too bad there isn’t an actual store. I havent seen Girl Boss yet but I’ve been wanting too! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

      I love Lulu’s more than anything!!! I was actually wondering if they had an actual live store but you just answered that! You must MUST watch Girlboss, it’s so good. You’ll fly through it because the episodes are SO good but short. Idk if you know the premise of the series but once you find out, you’ll be like WOW! Or at least I was like that hahah

    That maxi skirt is gorgeous! I have two that I hardly wear but I’ll have to give them a shot if not I’ll have to give them away lol. I’m just such a short person lol. Anyway, love the slit on the side.
    I’m loving the collab as well but I haven’t seen Jacqueline’s post on my feed. I’ll have to directly visit her blog just in case.

      I love love loveee maxis so much!! I’m sure it looks great on you even if you’re short….if anything they probably give the appeal that you’re tall since they’re so long? Maybe throw on some wedges or heeled sandals with them πŸ˜‰

      Aw thank you!!!! I randomly did it one day because it was scorching hot and I realized it was actually really cute to wear it that way haha

  5. Love how you multi use the maxi skirt!! Great idea!! I first thought it was a hi-lo skirt! Also when you tuck some part of it, it really gives an interesting pattern to the skirt! xoxo Sarah

    1. xoJenny says:

      I loveee high-low skirts too but you’re so right it definitely changes the pattern of the skirt when its raised up like that. I wore it to work that day and everyone was all over it and mind blown when I showed them it was actually just a very plain maxi haha.

      Liked by 1 person

      1. Yes!! It definitely gives it some sort of illusion! Just love that skirt and what you did!!! I personally never wear maxi’s haha. I don’t find it flattering on my. But perhaps if I wrap it up, I might like it!! xoxo Sarah

      YES their dresses are so perfect for events like that! I wish Lulu’s existed back in the day when I was going to homecoming or prom etc. Buttttt I do find a lot of my wedding guest dresses from that site- which I actually just bought one for an upcoming wedding in July. I’m so anxious to wear it!!!

    Have I overwhelmed you with my comments yet? Hahah. I do NOT expect you to respond to them, just as a disclaimer! WHAT! That maxi skirt is so versatile. I had no idea you could do all that with just a skirt. How cool! BAHHHHH my personal favorite of your Friday favorites is the last one πŸ˜‰ It’s coming so fast! WOOHOOO!

      Definitely not overwhelmed, maybe overwhelmed with excitement that you’re finally able to find time to get onto wordpress though!!! πŸ™‚ The last FF is definitely by far the BEST and most exciting one! We’ll have to exchange #’s at some point, it’ll be 100000x easier to update and work something out. Everything is going as planned so far on my end (booking SC hotel is happening tomorrow; Tuesday eek) soooooo we should be good. Hopefully your work schedule at least allows us one coffee and donut date πŸ˜‰

    I love that maxi skirt! It’s so cool that you can wear it in so many different ways. The problem I have with a maxi skirt is that they are all too long for me. Miles in fact, I can wear them like dresses, which they are not meant to be. Short people problems πŸ˜€
    I also just posted my post about my Dream Home, so I officially joined in the A Girl Can Dream party for this month, yay!! πŸ˜€

      LOL I love the “Miles in fact, I can wear them like dresses..” You need to try it like I have it then, that’ll be perfect for you!!!! Although, maybe if you do that it’ll actually be the length of a maxi? πŸ˜‰ BUT YAYY!!! I am so thrillled that you’ve joined in on the A Girl Can Dream collab. Gonna go check it out!!!! EEK ❀ ❀ ❀

    That skirt is nice, i didnt know there’s any other way to wear em.😊

    And that dream house picture I saved it on Pinterest too 😬 it’s a lovely one!

    And wow you are coming to California Im excited for you 😊

    My suggestions for San Francisco would be:

    Breakfast: Definitely Mama’s on Washington Square. 1701 Stockton St, San Francisco, CA 94133, it’s a must place to visit for brunch. But make sure you go early coz the line is really long. Try their Monte Cristo

    Also Italian Homemade 716 Columbus Ave, San Francisco, CA 94133 Lasagna is the best

    If you like ramen try the Mensho Tokyo 672 Geary St, San Francisco, CA 94102 tantanmen is to die for.

    I dunno why Im suggesting all food. Hehe I just love to eat.

    You mention donut, In pier 39 in san francisco there’s a donut place called Trish’s mini donut, you can grab a bucket while walking around the pier but be careful of seagulls theyre evil lol took a donut out of my hand when im about to put it in my mouth! 😏

    Ahhh i have so much suggestions for you in san francisco. I dunno why im excited even just typing my comment.

    For places beside Golden Gate bridge, I recommend The Lands End Lookout! And go for a ferry ride in sausalito 😊

    Let me know if you want more to add on your itinerary 😊😊

      Oh my goodness, you are the sweetest soul!!! I’m writing down ALL of these food suggestions (keep them coming girl- I wanna try all the best spots!) Esp that donut suggestion- did you say a bucket of donuts, we are speaking the SAME language!!!! I’m so excited. What is this Lands End Lookout? Is that near or by the Golden Gate? And what’s Sausalito/where can I go to get on the ferry?! xoxoxo

        Hi jenny,

        Im sending you these links to check it
        out

        https://www.nps.gov/goga/planyourvisit/landsend.htm

        http://goldengateferry.org/schedules/Sausalito.php

        The lands end you can catch the bus #38r from union square. You’ll love it there.

        The ferry to sausalito is located at the ferry building. There are 2 locations one is at pier 39. But I suggest to catch the one at the ferry building, caffeinate at the blue bottle 😊

        For the restaurant there is stinking rose and thanh Long also for you to try.

        For the bake goods mr holmes which is famous for their cruffin[croissant muffin] and brendas for beignets πŸ˜‹

        Also dont forget Ghirrardelli square located at north point.

    Hi, Jenny =) Happy Friday and Happy Cinco de Mayo!
    It’s really funny that you guys called her brother! I hate spiders, too.
    I never thought to tuck a skirt in like that, so cute. And Maybelline mascaras are my favorite!
    Although I do like to splurge on the Tarte and Too Faced ones sometimes πŸ˜‰
    I know I need to check Girlboss out, but I’m still catching up on so many shows, like Jane the Virgin!!
    I’m checking out the dream home collab, as well as Lulus–I guess I’ve been missing out!!
    Ohhh man, I miss California…we did hit up Miami a couple weeks ago, but there is truly no place like CA! Can’t wait to see what you guys find there ❀

      My boyfriend is absolutely obsessed with Miami! We went back in January and we fell in love with the palm trees and beach life there. Did you write about your Miami trip? I’ll have to head over to your blog to check πŸ™‚ And I agreee I do love splurging from time to time on the Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, it’s my favorite “expensive” mascara. But for drug store, I’m highly impressed with the maybelline one. Works wonders on my lashes! And What is Jane the Virgin, is it a netflix series? Ive been looking for a new show to watch!!

    I was totally into maxi skirts last year, but this year I actually donated mine because I realized they just weren’t practical at all with how long they are! I was always tripping on the hem, especially anytime the ground wasn’t completely level, lol. Wish I thought about tucking it like this! They really are so comfortable!

    1. xoJenny says:

      That was my issue with Maxi’s too, I thought they were so cute so I bought a few but rarely wore them, I felt like I was tripping over them or stepping on them as the wind blew. Luckily one day it was scorching hot out and the fabric was making me hotter so I lifted it up and tucked it in and viola! I was like wow this is so much better and now I more time then not wear it just like that! And when its cold I untuck it and use it a blanket for my legs haha

      1. Go to the La Valencia hotel and have drinks or lunch on their patio – the view is amazing -from there you can walk down to the coves. a must see. Laguna is gorgeous too. You should just keep driving

      Aw thanks Anne! And to think I at first hated maxi’s and never ever wore them (even though I bought a few) but once I started wearing it tucked in I started loving them more and more. I even like them fully down too. It grew on me. Do you own any? They’re so comfortable! And Lulu’s is my favorite online shop- I wish they had actual stores but shopping online is fun for me….I just wish they were a little less expensive! *sigh* lol xo

  19. I love your Friday Favorites posts! I need to get a maxi skirt with a slit like that so I can transform it. I love all the ways you wear yours! Also, you are right. People do NOT give drugstore makeup enough credit. The L’Oreal Infallible foundations are better than designer, and CoverGirl makes a kick-butt mascara!
