    Ooooh, the party decor and the cocktail would be perfect for the bachelorette party I’m planning for my BFF!


    life lately photos – I got a new camera!

  • Wendy San

    The party decor, daydream and quote a definitely inspiring! And guess what! I just came back from seeing the Hunger Games. It was great! The way they produced it was fantabulous! Are you going to watch it soon?? :)


  • Tiffani Stuart

    Ok, I’m loving the Champagne button!! That’s definitely a favorite of mine, lol… I also like the hammock w/the view & use of paint! So cute!

    I haven’t decided if I’ll see the Hunger Games, at all. I didn’t read the book, either. It just doesn’t really intrigue me that much. However, I don’t usually watch/see things while everyone else is raving about them. I feel like I always end up disappointed b/c I expected too much [from all the prior hype build-up]. Maybe one day, though…

    I am going with my friend today afternoon for Hunger Games! The trailers look really good !

  • Liesl

    I just got The Hunger Games book, so I need to finish it before I go to watch the movie, even though I really don’t know if I can wait!

    Have a lovely weekend, ladies!

    I loveee that pink martini!!

  • Stephanie McDonnell

    Not seeing it. I can’t see a movie without reading the book first. It always ruins the book. I have the books amongst my heeping stack, I just haven’t gotten to them yet. I have nearly 75 new books that I am working my through.

  • Susanna Hall

    I always love Lauren’s Friday Favorites but this week’s is especially fun! I love the wide stripes on the walls, the mirrors and balloons look fabulous for party decor, the press for champagne button is fun- wish it was real, the quote is amazing, the daydream looks like one and I’m curous about the cocktail!

  • Amy Breckenridge

  • Chelsea Heintschel

    Omg I love all of these. I had to choose one though my favorite would probably be the wide stripes paint or the party decor, just because I am on a home decorating kick right now.

  • Carey N

    Love the gold balloons!!! I’m going to see Hunger Games with my mom and niece this weekend! I’m so excited that we read the books together and are going to see the movie together. Such a fun thing to share with them!!

  • Sharrich Scott

    I too saw The Hunger Games at midnight and it was amazing!!! I am struggling now, but it was well worth it. At first I wasn’t sure what I was going to think as I hadn’t read the book like so many of my friends, but I can’t wait to add it to my movie collection. It has all the emotions you can imagine and then some….I cried, I laughed, I feel in love, I fought with the characters and I even jumped out of my seat once.

  • Leanne

    Gorgeous!!! I love it all!

    Love from South Africa

  • ellie grogan

    I saw the hunger games yesterday, it is like the best movie ever! some parts made me cringe, like when people were getting stabbed. that part where the scary dog thing jumped out, scared the hell out of me and my friends. like, i almost jumped out of my seat. and my friend started having a spaz shaking lolol i love u lauren!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kimberly

    Yes, I really want to see the Hunger Games!! Xx

  • Miriam Gronli

    I love the hammock, though I could never actualy use one. I would be too freaked out that I’m would fall, or something.

    I’ve actually been to the resturant with the champange button. It’s a really nice place in London, near Picadilly Circus if I remember correctly, called Bob Bob Ricard. It has this amazing rich art deco interiour. I went there for tea (which can be like a whole small meal in England), and it was all really good. Defintly a place to stop by in my oppion. ( (And yes they do have a button in each boot you can press for Champange. It is incredibly temping, but I didn’t actually do it.)

  • Pepsi Reed

    Saw The Hunger Games it was a great movie, I just felt as if it needed more insight on Katniss. Alot of things get skipped or left out but overall great movie.
