FRIDAY FAVORITES....LAST OF AUGUST EDITION

Oh am I ever glad Friday is here!! This week has been a doozy!! A DOO-ZY!!! Today was suppose to be lighting selection but since we blew our lighting budget on can and cabinet lighting, we'll be rearranging and instead finalizing cabinets today. The weather is beautifully cool, my mom and I are shopping later for house stuff and we will be under the Friday Night Lights at the High school football stadium tonight. Where will you be? And what are your favorites this week? Here's mine:

1. Starfish Project Jewelry
Starfish Project is a non-profit organization with a social enterprise that cares for women coming out of human trafficking and exploitation. They work by the principle of this parable. 
The Starfish Parable: One day, an old man was walking along a beach that was littered with thousands of starfish that had been washed ashore by the high tide. As he walked he came upon a young boy who was eagerly throwing the starfish back into the ocean, one by one. Puzzled, the man looked at the boy and asked what he was doing. Without looking up from his task, the boy simply replied, “I’m saving these starfish, Sir”. The old man chuckled aloud, “Son, there are thousands of starfish and only one of you. What difference can you make?” The boy picked up a starfish, gently tossed it into the water and turning to the man, said, “I made a difference to that one!”

Just look at how beautiful their jewelry is. I adore these earrings.

Bar Necklace HERE
You and I can help make a difference!!
2. Office College and A BETH BRIGGS Original
Remember, Last Friday I showed you some of my Pink Decor for my office at the house? Here are some pics I found at Hobby Lobby to make a collage on one wall, I plan on adding a gold arrow or cluster of wall flowers. My faux fur throw is going to be perfect to put over the couch. 
You know there had to be a pineapple!!!

MY BETH BRIGGS Original. 
If you haven't heard of her, you need to go visit her Etsy Store, She takes a picture of you and does a fashion illustration. Isn't the print she created for me adorable??? It comes matted as an 11x14. Just going to get a white frame and it will go in the office too. That is why she made the accents more pink than red.

3. Week's Attire
Boutique top, Old Navy skirt, Target sandals

Target top, Loft cardi, Zappos sandals

Target necklace, Gap top, JC Penny pants

4. Peplum Tops
Obviously loving a lot of corals colors this week. Remember the Peep Toe Tom Booties I showed you last week? Well, I was so excited to wear them and incredibly happy to find this peplum tee from Anthropologie in my coset with the tags still on!!! Winning!! It was an online clearance under $15 and even Mr. Nine said how cute it was. It was an 80 degree day but I still felt the booties went great with it. Just love forgiving peplum!

5. Misc. FUN
Speaking of Peplum and Anthropologie, how cute is this TOP!! 
The back, the ruffles, the color...I want!! Several colors too.


AND I want this ANTHRO DRESS
BUY IT HERE

And Major LOVE SUNSHINE!!!

It's my turn over at The Blended Blog for showcasing my favorite things from the net this week. Head over there now and see what I picked.

The windows are in!

And tonight is the home opener for our "#9" and team. He still is unable to play due to his foot but we are hoping for a "W!" And he may be back sooner than expected!!

Let's Do This Weekend Thang!!!

  27. Love that trio of signs! How exciting that the house is all closed in now. We had that as goal number 1 when we were building our house; we knew it was the only way we could continue the work once the New England fall/ winter weather hit.
