Friday Favorites #2

Wow. I can’t believe we’re already at another weekend. I’m typing this up on Thursday night and feel like it was just Monday. I loved doing my last Friday Favorites and I think you guys enjoyed reading it. So I thought why not make another one?!  friday favesBioré Pore Strips   IMG_6436 I love these things! I’ve ran out of them long ago, and finally restocked. Boy, am I glad I did. I have combination skin, and tend to get awful blackheads around my nose. So I put one of these on my nose for about 15 minutes and my nose looks SO much better now. If your on the fence about getting these or face masks tend to dry out your skin, try these. Right now they have cute animal print ones (hence the zebra nose strip)  

Free Coffee   IMG_6434 I  go to Dunkin’ Donuts pretty often. So every once and a while I get free drinks by using the DD Perks app. I was so excited to give myself some midday energy after grocery shopping. It’s the little things 🙂 ❤

Music I think I’ll probably include music in most of friday favorites posts. I love music!

Scars To Your Beautiful – Alessia Cara If you are feeling down about yourself, please listen to this. I cannot express how much I appreciate this song. It reminds us that we’re beautiful and you don’t have to change who you are. You’re the best you, you can be. You’re enough ❤

Work From Home – Fifth Harmony Yes, I’m a big fan of 5H. I’m so excited for their new album 7/27. Even if you’re not into girl groups, I still recommend this song. It doesn’t have a lot of depth, but it is sooo catchy 😉

Life Is Worth Living – Justin Bieber “Love Yourself” is still my favorite off his new album, but this one’s a close second. This song has such a deep, relatable meaning to it. The title sums it up. Life is worth living. Even when it gets hard. Even when we want to give up. Life is beautiful, every second of every day. And, it is most definitely worth living.  

This Quote pin Real talk: I got a grade on an exam that was less than what I wanted. I felt so down about it hours after. I sat down and kept thinking about how I screwed up and could’ve done better. When really, I gave it my all. I could’ve gotten a better grade sure. But, I couldn’t have done better, because I did my best. A couple hours later I picked myself up, worked out and listened to some positive music. I felt 100% better. I also prayed for God to help me accept that I’m not perfect and that that’s okay. Moral of this rant is that our thoughts are so powerful. Don’t be so hard on yourself, it’s okay to mess up! You’re amazing just the way you are ❤  

That’s a wrap for this week. Before I go I wanted to say that I’m now on Blog Lovin’. I know a lot of people prefer to follow blogs that way instead of email. So, I set one up for Gracefulcoffee.


Question time:

What’s one thing you’ve been loving recently?!

Do you prefer to follow blogs via email or Blog lovin’? 


Thanks for reading,

  1. Great quote! And I’m with you on loving music. 🙂 I’m adding you on Blog Lovin’ right now. I rarely use Blog Lovin’, though. I’m a Feedly fan for keeping up with blogs. 🙂


  2. I like following blogs via bloglovin! OMG- the DD perks app is the best!! What is your favorite type of coffee from Dunks? Hope you have a great weekend girly!


  3. I love those Biore strips! I’ve been drinking coffee like crazy lately. Theres no Dunkin Donuts near campus though so I usually hit the starbucks in the library. I miss Dunkin’s coffee though.


  4. I love your blog- seriously adorable! I still can’t get over that you are only 16! I recently started my blog and still can’t figure out this whole “follow” my blog thing. So there are two ways, via email or via bloglovin? There is so much to learn and it all feels so confusing!
    Xo, Tara


    • Thank you so much, Tara! You’re so kind ❤ It took me a while to understand the whole blogging thing too. There's still lots of stuff I'm not 100% sure about. I prefer to follow blogs via email, where I get an email every time that blog posts. Whereas with blog lovin' you follow people and have a feed like on Twitter or Instagram 🙂 Hope that helps!



  5. I love free Dunks coffee! We get free coffee here when our football team wins….which admittedly isn’t often. And sorry about your exam score! Sounds like you’re able to stay pretty positive tho! 🙂


  6. haha, that’s so cute that they have zebra print ones! I’ve never tried using those strips, but I’ve heard good things about them! I really love that quote too!
