Alison’s Friday Favorites

TGIF and time for another round of Friday Favorites!  Let’s hop right in.

Favorite #1 – Scarf Print Results

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for voting for the first scarf designs for my new product line launching this spring.

You’ll be learning more in the coming weeks about these silk scarves, including the Brooklyn-based female artist who created these designs and the special charity that we’ll be donating a portion of proceeds. The scarves will be available for purchase in late March.

Drum roll please….

Here are the three winning prints that have gone to production!

1. Green Floral

2.  Blue Floral

3.  Pink Floral

Favorite #2 – Sugarfix by Baublebar

I usually don’t get too excited over a Target collaboration but this one really got me.  Baublebar has released it’s new Sugarfix line for Target!  And the pieces are SO cute and on trend for spring.  Oh and the prices!  Everything is super affordable.  All of the earrings below are $9.99 – $14.99.

I’m hosting a giveaway on my Facebook page for one of these pairs of earrings.  If you haven’t entered yet, hop over there and do it now!

Favorite #3 – Easy Hair, Don’t Care

One thing I dreaded most about cutting my hair short was not having the (lazy) option of putting it in a ponytail every day – which means I have to actually fix my hair on a daily basis!  This week I did a Facebook Live of how I curl my short bob. It only takes about five minutes a day and I love it SO much more than a ponytail.  If this is one of your reasons for not getting your hair cut, let me tell you that it’s not so bad!

Here’s a quick video of how I style my hair, in case you missed it.

Favorite #4 – A Girl’s Night Out (without the hangover)

Once a month, my dear friend Crystal puts on this outstanding event to help women connect meaningfully in our busy seasons of life.  It’s called HeartStories and is designed for us to have more joy, more connection, more purpose and more fun.  Crystal is truly one of the most positive women I’ve ever met and has such a gift for connection.  Oh and did I mention the amazing wine and food?  Two of my favorite things.

I’ve recently signed on as one of the sponsors of the monthly GNO and would love to see you there in person if you live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.  Each month, I’ll be sharing a five minute style tip.  You can learn more and sign up for next month’s GNO at heartstories.com.

Favorite #5 – Valentine’s Date Night Outfit

Do you go out for Valentine’s Day?  Craig and I usually do but we pick a week night to celebrate when the restaurants aren’t as busy (and they don’t have fixed menus, I hate fixed menus).  This year I’ll be pairing up this navy striped blouse (under $25!) with my new frayed hem jeans, adding this tassel necklace for a festive pop of red and finishing it out with my comfy block heel sandals.

    • Thanks Stephanie! The company is sending over my samples this week. Needless to say I’ll be listening for the FedEx truck every day. 🙂

  • You are one busy lady! I can’t wait to see the V-day outfit on you. I think it’s fantastic that you have surrounded yourself with people who like yourself are in the business of empowering and celebrating women.

    • Aw, thank Bojana! Having a network of amazing women to “do life” with is such a blessing. Happy early Valentine’s Day to you!

  • Laura Ryner

    Loved the hair curling video. Your hair is so modern and stylish. i’m such a klutz with my hair. Going to try this on my daughter for her school Valentine’s dance tonight. Wish me luck. I’ll post photos on Instagram. Take care.

    • Please tag me if you post, ok? I’m curious to see how it goes! I’m a klutz with hair too but this feels pretty fool proof to me. Good luck!

    Great Friday Favorites post. I keep loving your hair Alison. All of those scarf florals are gorgeous. The mint+pink one is my favorite, the pink one is a close second favorite and the blue is third. They are all gorgeous though. I love love all those earrings by Baublebar for Target and plan to buy a few myself.

    I hope you join my Thursday Moda linkup which goes live every Thursday. Come share your awesome style with me and my readers. Thanks and enjoy the weekend! Ada. =)

    • Thanks so much sweet Ada! Love seeing your pics of beautiful Vivi on FB. She is growing up so fast! Have a wonderful weekend. xoxo

    Great post! Love your new hair! Thanks for highlighting pieces from Target. I love that I can swing through the women’s department while grocery shopping to check them out 🙂 Can you share the color nail polish you are wearing in the tutorial? Love it too!

  • Thanks for the tutorial! My bob has grown out to about chin length so I’m going to give this a try! My hair is very straight so I will try to use something to make it dirty. I loved your tips!
