Currently Obsessing Over… {v. 81}


Well y’all, we’ve made it to Friday & I haven’t blown away yet in #HurricaneMatthew so I’m going to take that as a win. I’m saying big prayers for my family who is still on the east coast of FL & my sister up in Gainesville as well as my friends across the state. This storm is no joke and I hope that we can weather it together. Also please pray for Haiti, the Bahamas, and Cuba who are already starting the process to rebuild. 

Thank you also for those of you who’ve reach out about Buddy’s surgery or promised to say some prayers for him! Due to the storm I had to move his operation to Monday so we didn’t get stranded in Sarasota (they close the bridge I have to drive over in high winds)- because stranded with a doped-up dog is no good! ha. So now Friday is actually my Friday… and off to the office I go!

On a lighter note, I’ve got five things I can’t stop obsessing over rounded up for you! Read on to see what they are & share some of your own! 🙂


Is there anything cuter than a fun striped top? How about adding big ‘ol ruffles?! Umm that’s a yes and yes! I love that the length of this bell sleeve top is long enough to wear with leggings this fall (#bootycoverage) and could easily transition to winter with a puffer vest layered on top! I mean I’m pretty sure this is a must have for each of us 🙂 Ps- If stripes aren’t your thing is also comes in three solid colors. #YoureWelcome

I seem to be Goldilocks and the three planners this year! I was really struggling with the Happy Planner I was using; it was absolutely adorable, but was “creative” so each week it took me so much time to decorate it and make it cute that it defeated the purpose of keeping me on track! I mean ain’t nobody got time to find coordinating stickers for each weekly event! ha. So, I went on the hunt for a new agenda and decided to order the Happy Everything Agenda from Coton Colors. I’m really excited to simplify and will be sure to share more with you once I’ve used it for a bit!

Happy Everything Agenda


In my recent Nordstrom order I got a few samples (did you know you always get three samples with every order??) and I’m obsessed with the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer I tried! I’m no beauty guru- homegirl wears the same makeup every day- but this may be a game changer even for me! The best way to explain it is to say that it gives your face a crazy good matte finish and then you put your makeup on and it makes you look photo ready ALL.DAY.LONG! Trust me y’all- you need this primer in your life!

Leopard is one neutral we can all agree on, so it’s time to add some “fall” leopard shoes to your wardrobe! It’s hard for me to make it all day in heels, but wedges I can definitely do, so these leopard wedges are the best of both worlds! What a way to spice up your workweek flow right? And let’s just chat about how cute these would look paired with the stripe top above!! Pattern mixing at it’s finest!

I stumbled upon Landon Austin last night (thank you iTunes!) and of course I feel hard for this sweet, sweet love song! Oh my goodness y’all – listen up asap and get ready to SWOON! 🙂

Alright, I’m off to fill my tank with gas and snuggle up with the Budster to ride out this storm! Praying for safety for everyone in Matthew’s path!

    That primer is my favorite – I haven't used it in a while, but I just ran out of primer and I'm tempted to get that one again!! Also those wedges are too CUTE – i need some leopard shoes since I basically walked through mine because I wore them so much!! Happy Friday! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Hope you have stayed nice and dry and POWERful in the storm! We only lost power for a few minutes, so I am very thankful!!! LOVE those leopard print shoes! May have to grab a pair!!

    Happy Friday!

    Stay safe, Gentry! And I will pray for Buddy! I am actually doing an in-depth planner post about how I use my planner on Monday! I love seeing how people use theirs–everyone is different!

    Oh my goodness I love that top!!! And Landon Austin really is amazing! Whenever I want to listen to sappy love songs I always listen to his albums, haha.

    Hope everyone who was in Matthew's way is safe — glad to hear your family is! I am definitely going to have to check out Landon Austin!
