Friday Favorites #128 – Lots of Good Stuff

Hey there and happy Friday friends! Do you realize this time next week we’ll be well into the throws of Black Friday? Of course now we hardly have to wait to get a good deal. They roll out earlier every single year and have already started for this year. Anyways, enough about that for now, let’s get to what’s worthy of being named a fav this week.

Dyson Cordless Vacuum


This may seem like a weird favorite, but every time I get this cordless vacuum out of the pantry (yes that’s where I keep it) I think of y’all, and that I need to share this gem with you.

I don’t have kids at home or pets, but I grab this vacuum all the time for quick clean ups in the kitchen. You can even use it on carpet for a quick touch up and get some pretty good vacuum lines, and if y’all know me, you know I love me some vacuum lines. They make me happy. #itsthelittlethings #callmeweird

I have become totally smitten with all the tiered trays and the endless ways to decorate them seasonally and for holidays. I’m now the proud of owner of two.


I bought this one first, a few months ago. You can get your own here on Amazon, but if you have a Hobby Lobby near by, I’d check there first. That’s where I found mine and got a great deal when they were 50% off. You probably already know you can always use a coupon at Hobby Lobby for 40% off if somethings not already on sale.

This is mine decorated for fall, but pretty soon it will be all things Christmas and Ho-Ho-Ho.

I also have this adorable wooden one. Crazy as it may sound, I couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I finally clicked “add to cart” and POOF, in 2 days it was mine. I liked that it would hold things that are a little bigger than the metal one and seeing my friend Andrea’s all decorated for Christmas was just the push I needed. WOOD TIERED STANDWOOD TIERED STAND

I’ve started gathering things to decorate mine for Christmas, like mugs, cute little wooden signs, straws and greenery. I’ll make sure to share it once it’s all dolled up. I have a Pinterest board just for tiered tray inspiration you might want to check out and follow. I also rounded up some cute things that would be perfect to use to decorate one.

Christmas Pillows, Red Pillow, Plaid PillowPILLOW COVERS 

I am alsoloving these pillow covers and the pattern mixing. These come in a four pack and are perfect for slipping the covers off your current sofa pillows and replacing them with these for the upcoming holidays. Last year I started “collecting” pillow covers. I got these from Pottery Barn. Pillow covers are much easier to store than buying new pillows and figuring out where to keep them. I just hang them on skirt hangers in a closet for easy storage. There are so many options and fun choices.

The Sephora VIB Sale is open to Insider members now through Monday. ?? A great time to pick up some Christmas gifts or a treat for yourself. Use the code BIBONUS for 15% off your entire purchase. You do have to be signed up for the Insiders program, but it’s FREE, so what are you waiting for? 


True story: I am totally not a hoodie girl. They drive me bonkers the way they pull back at the neck, but for some strange reason I was so drawn to this cutie I had to give it a try, and guess what? I love it. It doesn’t pull back like most and it’s so soft and cozy. The cut is generous with side slits, so it hangs perfectly and the inside is oh my goodness, so soft. If hoodies aren’t your thing and you want a regular ol’ sweatshirt, no worries, check this one out. It’s a longer tunic length and just as cozy. If you need me this weekend, you just might find me shopping online and wearing this very outfit. As luck would have it, Old Navy’s already offering 50% off purchases through Sunday for card holders with code PREPARTY.

Check out these things out

And if I’ve talked about Nickel & Suede earrings once, I’ve talked about them 100 times. They are having a PRE-Black Friday sale and if you use the code VIP20 you get 20% off your purchase now through Sunday. Y’all know I wear a pair of these earrings almost every single day. Here are my top picks for you

Are you looking for a yummy side dish to take to Thanksgiving or maybe a Friendsgiving this weekend? Look no further. I got you! This recipe is literally perfect. Erin made it for their Friendsgiving last weekend and said it was a huge hit. It’s one of our family favorites and always on our Thanksgiving and Christmas buffet.

ULTA is also having a pre-Cyber Monday sale, so if you aren’t a Sephora shopper, and prefer ULTA, then it’s all good. Use code CYBERFUN18 for $10 off $60.

Last but not least, KATIE’S NOSE UPDATE. Well, sadly she did break it (if you missed the first part of this story find it here). She has been such a CHAMP. Thankfully, she’s not in pain and it will heal. There was no damage that entails seeing an ENT, but she is going to probably need to consult a plastic surgeon to talk about fine tuning where it’s just a little crooked. Poor baby girl. We are hoping and praying it will miraculously heal straight.  Thank y’all so much for the kind comments and well wishes. I will be so excited to see her Monday night when we get to Nashville.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

    Gosh I am feeling like I really want a tiered tray! I better head to HL and check one out, I’m on the fence about where I’ll put it – you’ll have to help me figure that out. I love those pillow covers too, I can’t wait to start decorating next week and figure out which ones I might need. Black Friday is starting earlier and earlier I swear it drives me crazy. That Ulta sale looks good and great deal on the N&S earrings too. They’d make a great gift.
    Just a few more sleeps and you’ll be off on your trip! Talk to you soon precious friend, love you!

      You need a tiered tray my friend.??? I waited too long and most of the little stocking stuffers I wanted for the girls were sold out at Sephora. Boooo! I’m going to hit a store tomorrow and see what I can find. Hope you had a great time at the ball game. XXOO

    Happy Friday Morning cutie pie!!! Eek I am loving the way you decorate a Fall tray and cannot wait to see it for Christmas!!! So much goodness here, this pillow covers are so cute and a great deal! I LOVE my cordless vac, just like that, it is the BEST purchase we ever made for cleaning purposes I think, I use it daily! You go have the best day my precious friend! Talk soon. xoxox

    • November 17, 2018 / 5:28 pm

      We have so much in common sweet friend. Thanks for giving me the final nudge I needed to order the wood one. I love it. Enjoy having those boys home. XOXO

    I’m debating on changing out my black and white buffalo check pillow covers with new Christmas ones? What do you think? Our living room area is red, black, and cream. I still like the check, so I may just incorporate some red in for the holidays. I hate that Katie’s nose ended up actually being broken, but you’re right! She has handled the situation like a pro! Happy Friday, Lisa! I hope your weekend is great! And thanks for all the sales updates!

    • November 17, 2018 / 5:26 pm

      I think either set of pillows will be good. I kept thinking I was going to order the black and white and never did. Maybe next year. Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and getting all the things done. XO

    Well, what a great idea about the pillow covers. I’m going right now to check those out. Those tiered trays are so cute but I just haven’t gotten one. At this point I’m trying so very hard to limit the “stuff” I buy. I already have so much and one day my kids are not going to be happy about that when it becomes their stuff. :o)) I’m so sorry about Katie and I hear a broken nose is so painful. Enjoy your time in Nashville!

    • November 17, 2018 / 5:25 pm

      Thanks Lea! I hope you find some you like. I know what you mean about limiting the stuff, but lately I’m feeling like a little freshening up is in order. ?Thanks for the sweet thoughts about Katie. She’s doing great. Thank heavens. I’m ready to see her though. Have a great weekend! XO

    GIMME all the throw pillows and tiered trays! I scored some beautiful pillows at TJ Maxx a few weeks ago, and I’m obsessed, but it’s like I can never get enough haha pillow covers are a fantastic idea – I don’t know why I never think of it in time! Happy Friday, Lisa!

    • November 17, 2018 / 5:24 pm

      Okay, I’ll send you all the pillows and trays. LOL I wish I could, but I’ve got these kids who want stuff to. ? Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! XO

    Such a fun round up! Loving all of your holiday decor. I hear you on hoodies. I don’t need the hood or the extra fabric so I usually try to avoid them. But….as you know I have a couple that were cute enough to tolerate the hood. And honestly I forget it’s there when I’m wearing one. Your pink hoodie perfection!

    • November 17, 2018 / 5:23 pm

      Thanks Gina! Happy to know I’m not alone in my hoodie feelings. HA! Hope you’re having a great weekend. XO

    It’s so funny because I just ordered the metal tiered tray for my Sister-in-law for Christmas. And the wood look one is my wish list! I love the bigger size. Have a wonderful weekend!

    • November 17, 2018 / 5:22 pm

      Aw, that’s great. I bet she’ll love it. I hope you get the wood one. They are both fun pieces. Happy weekend!

  8. November 16, 2018 / 7:16 pm

    I have a tiered dessert stand I decorated for fall just to see if I might want a tiered stand like that. Now I think I need to go ahead and get one. They are so cute and perfect for all the little holiday things in one festive place!

    • November 17, 2018 / 5:21 pm

      Yeah, they are all so cute all decked out. Go for it. Happy weekend. XO

  9. November 17, 2018 / 10:31 am

    I kind of wish you hadn’t posted the wooden tiered stand-LOL! I had a metal one a few years ago, but the one I had was too big. I really like the warmth of the wood. So glad you found a hoodie you like, the pink is a pretty color on you.

    • November 17, 2018 / 5:21 pm

      That made me chuckle Kim. Story of my life…I see it and have to have it. #bloggerproblems LOL Hope you’re having a great weekend!!! XO

    Oh no! So she DID break it? Poor thing! I hope it does heal straight! I love that wooden tier stand and I love my metal one, too! I need to decorate mine still for Christmas, which means I’ll need to do a little shopping! Darn! Ha! 😉 I am going to ask my hubby for a new pair of Nickel & Suede earrings for Christmas. I only have 1 pair! I need more!


    • December 11, 2018 / 8:22 am

      Well, what’s that they say? Better late than never. So here I am. HA! I hope you get a new pair of N&S earrings. XO

  11. November 18, 2018 / 2:11 am

    Great news about Katie’s nose.
    I’m going to read your post all over again, it’s brimming with content. Even at first read I’m bubbling with inspo excitement!
    Hugs, enjoy your Sunday, x.

    • December 11, 2018 / 8:22 am

      Sorry for the VERY TARDY response. Thanks Mary!!! XO

  12. November 18, 2018 / 2:21 pm

    Omg I’m so sorry to hear about Katie’s nose! i was wondering how that saga would end, eek. In completely unrelated news, you just blew my mind with the cordless vacuum there like whoa–how did I not know these existed (other than like little Dirt Devils)?! Hope you’re having a great weekend Lisa, and aren’t feeling the effects of the Cali fires too much!

    • December 11, 2018 / 8:22 am

      And here I am again, responding so late. You know I guess it’s feeling much better, she hasn’t mentioned it lately. It SLIGHTLY crooked, but she says she doesn’t want to do anything about it. I guess we’ll wait and see. ❤️

  13. November 19, 2018 / 10:39 pm

    Cute picks dear. Love the tiered metal tray. That’s super rustic and such an adorable touch for your decor.
