Fab Friday Faves 9.18.15

Happy Friday darlings!  This week flew by and I can't believe we only have like 11 days left until we have to be out of our apartment, especially because we have no idea where we are going or if we are going or anything!  Not stressful at all haha.  Josh and I spent the weekend out on the North Fork of Long Island for a beautiful wedding and I spent a couple afternoons in Manhattan this week, with the weather so beautiful how could I not?  It is perfect wandering weather.  I hope everyone had a good week and that fall hasn't set in too much anywhere, lets prolong the warm weather as long as we can right?  Everyone have a great weekend and don't forget to enter the great GIVEAWAY that I am so blessed to be a part of!

1. So when Josh and I were out in Long Island, we happened to have to drive by an outlet mall so I suggested we check it out.  I found this adorable purse at Kate Spade and fell in love.  Man I love myself some outlet mall!

2. Wednesday was the Birchbox Soho Customer Appreciation Day.  There was no question that I Had to go to this as we all know my Birchbox obsession.  I needed some face wash anyway and with any purchase I got to BYOB (Build Your Own Box) which costs $15 normally and got some amazing Van Leeuwan Ice Cream.  Totally worth the trip!

3.  Also on Long Island we had a the Lewen Farm Stand right by our hotel and had to go because I love nothing more than fresh produce (I like to call it real food).  This was not your normal farm stand, it was the size of a small supermarket and had every vegetable and fruit that will grow in this climate along with eggs, dairy and anything else you could want from a farm.  We got everything haha.

4. Before we left for the wedding I needed to get my nails done.  I have been going to a nail place super close to the apartment and getting color gel manicures.  I am pretty in love with it even though it isn't quite my "real" gel.  Anyway, I loved the colors I picked to go with my dress and I love that a week later (I took this picture yesterday) they still look like they were just done.

5. On the way to the wedding I of course started to get a migraine. I swear it never fails.  We had to stop at a CVS to get Josh some Icy Hot patches for his back and I just happened to look over and see the headache section.  I saw these Mycratine shots which I had never seen before and thought it was worth a try.  Basically it is liquid nicotine haha and as soon as we got to the truck I drank it down.  It tasted awful but within a few minutes my migraine was pretty much gone!  This may be a huge breakthrough for me as absolutely nothing OTC ever works for me and my my prescription Relpax is $20 a pill.  On the way back we stopped and bought some more so once I try another and can form a better opinion I'll let you know if they really do work as well as I hope!

  1. That Kate Spade bag is beautiful. And I will definitely have to try that migraine medicine. I get them too. I usually try to take something with medicinal caffeine in it to make it tolerable until I can go sleep it off!

  2. That Kate Spade bag is so cute! We're going to a wedding tomorrow and I just haven't had the time to get my nails done :(

  3. Love the Kate Spade Purse! Build your own Birch Box?! where do i sign up? ;) xo, Tiara -

  4. Oh Kate Spade you always steal my heart. Love the fruit stand size of a market thing!!! Glad you found some drug store relief from the migraine! Liquid nicotine? For real?

  5. Is there anything better than just spontaneously buying a Kate Spade bag?? Nope. Definitely not. :) And I love farm stands too. Especially this time of year. There are so many things to pick from! Hope you're having a great weekend! Thanks for linking up with us at H54F!
