Fri-YAY (and introducing #FridayFavorites)

Happy Friday or Fri-YAY, y'all! It's after midnight and this post may more so be a stream of consciousness than anything... So bear with me y'all and let's get to it! 

Yes, I have very much become a New Yorker in some regards but there are certain Southern "eccentricities"(as a broad term) that I will never let go including but not limited to the following:
  • "Y'all" will still remain a part of my vocabulary.
  • The only iced tea is sweet tea.
  • Proper manners and greetings such as "yes ma'am" and "no, ma'am."
  • A love of barbecue, biscuits, and fried chicken.
As today is Friday, I am beginning a series entitled "Friday Favorites" (or #FridayFavorites to those speak hashtag) featuring my favorites for that month, that week, that day... Whatever strikes my fancy as a favorite.

These Crocs Leigh Wedge Shooties are amazingly comfortable and stylish! There will be #TuesdayShoesDay post coming soon professing my love for Crocs but until then, you'll have to take my word for it on how awesome these booties/shooties are on your feet. (ps. If you order these from crocs.com, you can earn some $$$ with eBates too - it's 5% back!)




Winter is coming and my skin has gotten drier with age... I am currently obsessed with face oils and BioOil is one of my favorites (I have another favorite oil as well but currently sourcing the places it can be purchased as I've only found it in Richmond, VA). I have melasma as well as a few scars/marks on my face from previous blemishes and BioOil is supposed to minimize scarring and assist with pigmentation issues. 


Last but not least, my Granny who was quite possibly my favorite person in the whole world (other than Mom) passed away last month. Granny lived a long, beautiful, simple yet joyous life, and left this earth at 94 with grace and dignity. She would always tell me, "I love you a bushel, and a peck, and a hug around the neck."  Her heart and gentle soul will be missed but always with me.
