Not A Creature Was Stirring - Friday Favorites

Despite yesterday starting out totally poopy at work, I'm happy it's Friday! Some people at work drive me crazy by making everything a big deal, when it's just a small thing. I try not to let them bother me. Too bad I have to work this weekend (at my once a month job), but I'm still hoping to get in some good food and relaxing.

Favorite Makeup:
I heard about Too Faced Melted on MakeupAddiction on Reddit, and tried them. I can say, wow.. if you want bright, these are definitely them.

They have great staying power, even when some comes off when I drink/eat. The color is usually still bright afterward. Not saying it won't come off on food and everything else when you eat - that shit will get on all your napkins! But it will still be on your lips when you're done.

I've also never had anything with such amazing color, before, with no weird texture.
I bought the set of four minis at Sephora, which seems to be sold out, now. You can still buy individual lipsticks in the full size, with lots of color options. I like all the ones that came in the set, especially the nude and fuschia.

Most days, I just use my favorite lip balm I tried out, because I am too lazy to put on lipstick before leaving the house. This one feels awesome on my lips and has lots of color, too.
Favorite Food:
I made vegan zucchini brownies all for myself this week, because Greg doesn't eat any baked good with a vegetable in it. I thought about tricking him, but that would just be cruel... Not saying I wouldn't do it. But at least I get to have more later. I stuck a ton in the freezer to eat next week.

I took out a good chunk of the sugar and replaced it with a banana, because the recipe is pretty sugar-heavy. They turned out nice and soft, though, and you can always taste the batter to see if it needs more sugar.

Favorite Purchase:
I just ordered these boots today. Last year's winter made me realize I need a pair of snow boots. We had temperatures of -10 F, and my feet were always freezing, especially when we went to an outdoor concert. This year, I want to keep my feet warm and dry.

I really hope these work - they are the Kamik Seattle boot. I liked that they can fold down into the shorter boot, or you can wear them as a tall boot for more coverage. It is hard to find vegan snow boots!

Favorite Outfit:
I'd like one of everything from Spool 72. Everything is cute and cozy and I could wear their oversize knit sweaters everyday.

That's it! Enjoy your December weekend, and may the merrymaking begin. This cracks me up so much, I can't even explain why.
Linking up with Amanda at Meet @ the Barre today for Friday Favorites.
