Friday Favorites: July 11

Favorite New TV Show: HBO's Silicon Valley
Aaron and I just finished watching the first season of this HILARIOUS new comedy (you can easily binge watch the 8 1/2 hour episodes in one day this weekend, trust me, it's worth it!). Silicon Valley tells the story of a group of guys (including T.J. Miller who makes any show worth watching!) in Palo Alto, CA who are living together and working together on creating a company centered around a breakthrough app universal compression called Pied Piper. You don't need background knowledge of programming, Java, or the tech world to enjoy this show, but being familiar with the industry terms makes the jokes even better. Can't wait for the 2nd season!

Favorite Web series: Emma Approved
It's not a brand new web series, episodes 59 and 60 aired this week, but since I haven't blogged about it yet, I wanted to include the latest web series produced by Pemberley Digital. Emma Approved is a multi-platform series based on Emma, a novel by Jane Austen. It follows the success of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries which I was hooked on watching last year. Emma Approved is more focused and slower paced that Diaries, but I like it just as much! New episodes are published every Monday and Thursday. It's not too late to catch up on the story! Plus, there are links for each episode to character blogs, social media accounts and weekly fashion files.

Favorite Beauty Purchase: Birchbox - Limited Edition: Modern Mermaid
How perfect is this box?! This is the first time I have ever placed an order with Birchbox, the online monthly beauty subscription service and I could not be more pleased with my purchase. I am not a huge makeup lover, but when you wrap it up in a mermaid theme, I just cannot resist! The packaging design as well as the product selections are fantastic! I have already found a permanent spot in my bag for the mermaid scales compact mirror and I am wearing the COOLA Liplux and the Atelier Cologne today. If you're interested, snag this limited edition box before the end of summer!

What are your favorite things this week?
