Happy Friday, everyone! Did you all have a good week? Who has big plans for the weekend? My parents are coming to town for a visit, so I’ll probably just hang around with them. I’ll also try to squeeze in a video or photo shoot! I’m working on some DIY Halloween looks!
Another week down means another weekend to recharge and have some fun! Let’s start it all off with a classic Friday Favorites collection. Plus, we’re introducing a new mini-series to go with our Friday Favorites; What I Googled This Week! That will certainly provide us with some random fun.
Enjoy! Looking forward to seeing your favorites and learning about your weekend plans AND what you’ve Googled this week. Leave a comment below after linking-up!

I’ve been loving the poncho and blanket scarf trend! I happen to have an old rose-colored poncho that I’m glad I didn’t get rid of but aside from that, most of the ponchos on the market are aztec and boho prints. I love a good boho vibe every once in a while but it’s definitely not my personal everyday style! Now, this chic houndstooth poncho? Totally my vibe!
How pretty! Beautiful and lovely are the only ways to describe this black and white sheer scarf with touches of pastels. It will add a little chic femininity to any look!
Have I told you guys about my House of Harlow obsession love? I love how cool and unique their jewelry is. I love brands that are so original that you can spot it a mile away! When I see someone wearing House of Harlow jewelry, I know immediately without having to ask or check. Their branding is that good! This triangle statement ring is a must-have in my book.
I’ve had my eye on these loop belts, as they’ve been popping up in all of my favorite stores! It took me some time to decide but I like it! This belt, in particular, has a really classic vibe to it so it would be a great buy.
I love this boot because it’s such a classic ankle boot! Between the color and the style, you could wear these boots every year with anything. I always love a versatile, long-lasting piece!
What are your favorites of the moment?
I think we’re all guilty of Googling how to do things, fact-checking, or asking Siri things we’ve been pondering. I’m curious by nature and I like to figure things out on my own, so I’m constantly Googling everything!
Here’s my top 10 of the week:
 1- iPhone backgrounds
 2- How to take live photos with the iPhone 6s
 3- Suits Season 1 Amazon
 4- 44 numerology meaning
 5- Shoprite From Home hours
 6- National Coffee Day deals
 7- How to tell what song is playing in a YouTube video
 8- How many pounds is an iPad
 9- How many words per minute can the average person type
10- 6-year-old picked up by Pope
*This is a funny one! A news headline caught my attention by describing
this as a traumatizing event. Naturally with all of the excitement over
the Pope’s visit, I said ‘huh?’ Thank you Google for clearing this one up! It was an inspiring event, not traumatizing! 
What did you Google this week?

    I am constantly googling facts too, not sure what we did before google! LOL! Loving your beautiful fall picks! That poncho is fabulous! Have a lovely weekend with your parents!

    You're right about how the ponchos/blanket scarfs on the market are mostly aztec and boho prints! I've been trying to find more blanket scarfs but was trying to avoid anymore boho style. I really like the poncho from Lord and Taylor! I'm been trying to find a cute plaid one but I might just resort to a big plaid scarf instead.

    Thank you for hosting!

    I love the poncho you chose out! They've come out with some seriously gorgeous patterns this fall, so it's hard to resist grabbing a few more this season.

    The hounds tooth poncho is spot on for me, too! I am currently regretting disposing of a pair of hounds tooth booties that I had years and years ago and would now be totally on trend. Ugh! Sometimes I need to purge less, I think! Thanks for hosting the link up.
