Friday Favorites

Favorite Moment USA Women's Gymnastics Wins Team Gold in Rio
I love the Olympics and have so much fun watching them.  Women's Gymnastics is my favorite sport to watch and I was so excited when the team won the gold medal!  I was also so happy to see Simone Biles and Aly Raisman won gold and silver individual medals too!  These girls work so hard and it's incredible to see it all come to life at the Olympics.

Favorite Artist Jenn Meador
I came across Jenn Meador's paintings on Pinterest and fell in love with them.  She paints gorgeous abstract pieces in a beautiful array of colors.  Having one of her pieces would definitely be a dream come true!  You can see more of her work here.

Favorite Celebrity Look Blake Lively in Elie Saab
Blake Lively wore this look back in June for an appearance in New York City.  I am all about blush and nude tones so it's no surprise I love this dress.  Blake is absolutely stunning from head to toe in this look, but that's not really surprising considering she always looks amazing!

Since I'm still working on decorating the new house and helping my Mom to organize I've been getting lots of ideas from Pinterest.  This post from Brit + Co has really great bathroom storage ideas for small spaces.  The mason jar craft pictured below was my absolute favorite; I've crafted mason jars for cotton balls and Q-tips before, but the idea of decorating the jar tops is so fun!  If you're looking to organize or expand your storage you need to check out the post.

Favorite Quote Words to Live By
This quote is definitely words to live by.  I really believe in these words and I aspire to live them.  At Hello Monday you can get a free printable of this quote, plus some additional color options.  This would look great in a frame and is perfect for a desk or office at work!
