Friday Favorites #32.

Hey there, friends!  It's the weekend before Halloween which, to me, is the first official holiday of the holiday season.  So that deserves a big WHOOP!!  And guess what else?!  It is SO COLD here in Mckinney today!!  Yesterday it was in the 80s.  Today the high is 54 with a low of 31.  Next week, it will be back in the upper 70s for the most part.


Just like every Friday, I'm linking up with my fellow Mckinney mamas-Andrea, Narci and Erika-for Friday Favorites!

Here's what I've got for you today!

If you joined my new Facebook Group then you have probably seen some of these.  But I MUST mention them because they are just too good not to re-share.

My first favorite is not just a favorite for the week but it's going to be a favorite for the next several months and no doubt, for years to come!

It's this buffalo plaid comforter that I found on sale last week at Target.  I've slept under this thing for 3 nights now and I never want to leave my bed!!  Which may not be the best thing.

What makes it so amazing you ask?


1)  The print.  Red/black buffalo plaid is my favorite winter-y print. I'm slightly obsessed. I have shirts, pillows, throw blankets and even patterned vinyl in my Etsy shop with this print.  I love that it's not just for Christmas but still gives off that cheery holiday vibe all winter long!  So yeah, I've added a King comforter to the mix now.

(See?  Buffalo plaid throw blanket at the ball game last night!)

2.  The feel.  It is the softest and coziest comforter ever made.  I'm sure of it.  Velvety softness on one side and that plush sherpa material on the other.

3. The price. I got mine when it was on sale for $34.99!  I seriously would have paid $134.99 for it.  I posted the sale in the Facebook group as soon as I got home from Target but the sale ended the next day.  Good news?  The original price is only $49.99! With free shipping!  I've actually ordered another one for Matthew's bed upstairs because the boys had a fit when they found out it was MINE and not theirs.  ;)

Matthew's room also doubles as the guest room now because I took over the actual guest room when I went full time with my Etsy shop.  So my guests will be able to enjoy it all winter too.  

I can't wait to add some cute red and green Christmas throw pillows to it in a few weeks!

Also, be warned.  The picture on the website is less than stellar.  The pictures here will give you a much better look at it.  I've even got a video of it in the FB group.  Yes, I was THAT excited.

And while we're talking cozy blankets from Target, be sure to check out this one.  At my store, they had these three colors but online they have nine!

They are big and thick and incredibly soft.  And only $14.99!  I'm thinking of grabbing a couple for teacher gifts!  Go here to see all the color options.

The boys are loving it!  (Along with the new big orange pillows and fuzzy white one I picked up during my little shopping spree as well.  Why do you do this to me, Target?!)

This one was a totally random find but I just KNOW it's going to be a game changer for my makeup organization.  These are cosmetic bags that you can lay flat on the counter and actually see everything inside your bag.

Unlike this...

This is about 4" deep worth of random makeup.  I really should clean it out...

I dig and dig to find what I need in thing.  When I'm in a hurry, this stuff ends up all over my bathroom counter too.

But with these bags, you lay it flat with all your stuff in it so you can actually SEE what you have and then when you're done, just cinch it all up in seconds!  Tuck it in a cabinet and your all done!  So perfect for travel too.  They even hold full-size products as well as makeup!

I ordered mine here and there are tons of different colors to choose from.  (I ordered the gold.)  Wouldn't these make great Christmas gifts for moms/sisters/friends?!  They are at a great price point for gift giving.

So the bad news about this Favorite is that I don't technically have it in my possession yet.  It was scheduled to be here yesterday but was delayed and should be here today sometime.  I'll post a picture in the group when it arrives with my thoughts!

Find them HERE!

I know I'm behind in this but I just recently tried Moroccanoil products for the first time.  I've never been a big believer in buying the pricey salon shampoos.  I've been a Treseme girl since college and every time I switch to something different, whether it's a different drugstore brand or an expensive one from the salon, I always go back to Treseme.  I never found a salon brand that felt worth the money.

But so many people have mentioned Moroccanoil to me that I finally decided to give it a try.  I ordered the 2.5oz sizes in the shampoo and conditioner to see what I thought before making a full size commitment and have been using it since the beginning of October.

And oh my goodness!!!  I'm kicking myself so hard for being such a holdout!!  I could feel the difference the second I started rinsing the shampoo.  They make my hair smooth, silky and so soft!  I also use the Moroccanoil Treatment and that is probably my very favorite hair care product ever.  EVER.  

My hair stylist is going to be so proud of me when I see her again.  ;)

I love a good shoe sale!

The other day I came across Hunter boots on major sale!  So if you've been thinking about getting some but are waiting for a sale, look no further!  MAJOR sale!!

While I was browsing the sale, I found some low heeled booties that won't break the bank but are super cute!  I decided on these. (I bought the Dark Taupe Suede color but they come in 4 others as well.)  They should be in this week.  All of my booties have a higher heel and I really wanted some that were a little more casual for running around town.  And they were 50% off!  

Right now, all of the ones below are on sale so be sure to scroll through to see them all!  Shoe sales are definitely a favorite!  Especially when your size isn't sold out in every color!  Some of these are on sale for 40 and 50% off!


And since we're talking about shoes, I had to show you these super special ones!  

These are Christian Louboutin.  And they are butt-ugly but they kind of make me laugh.  Do you think that's the point?  ;)  They kind of remind me of the 80s when bedazzling was all the rage.

And we can't forget to add the price tag!  These beauties will set you back $1,045.  Worth it? #pleasesayno

Anyway, that's it for today!  Don't forget to join up with us in our Facebook group and find me on Instagram @amandanall and @thatinspiredchick.

And if you've had your eye on a Christmas sign from my shop, be sure to take advantage of the 10% off code that is still good through October 31st!  (Code is EARLYCHRISTMAS17 and good only for Christmas signs.)

Have a great weekend!!
