Happy Friday, friends! As the world’s still in shock from the announcement of Prince’s death, I’m giving my own little nod to the cultural icon with coloring today’s Favoring Friday Purple.

Favoring Friday Purple Edition
Favorite Purple Song
When I was in college I went through a “plasma donation” phase. I thought it would be easy money and that my desperate lengths would make my parents feel sorry for me and donate to the cause of Angie. I wasn’t starving by any means; I just wanted a little extra :). My parents didn’t give into my game and the phase didn’t last long before scar tissue started to make the process less than comfortable. What does this have to do with Prince you might ask? During one of my long donation sessions down on MLK Way, I sat there with people from all different walks of life and we all watched the movie Purple Rain. So when I think of the movie and hear the song, I think of those days at the plasma center.
Obviously, Prince means more than plasma and his influence runs deep in the music industry and beyond. It’s tragic when such talent leaves this world too soon and it serves as a vivid reminder of life’s fickleness and how each day could be our last.
Favorite Purple Food
These Blackberry Ombre Popsicles by Tutti Dolci All Sweets are perfect as the weather heats up. They are beautiful and without any artificial flavors! They’re purple rain in popsicle form :).
Favorite Purple Fantasy Fashion Find
Let’s be real. My closet isn’t full of Jimmy Choo stilettos, perhaps due to my budget and those ginormous heels. This is my fantasy find, and in this world my closet is full and I’m confident wearing heels that would make me taller than most men. Aren’t they gorgeous? Check out that ankle strap!
Favorite Purple Feasible Fashion Find
Springtime is notorious for having crazy weather fluctuations, and this Bobeau wrap from Nordstrom would be perfect to have on hand as an extra layer or even to and from workouts. It’s also 30% off now! Much more budget friendly and practical than the Jimmys.
Favorite Purple Home Decor Item
Enjoy your last full weekend of April. Taxes are hopefully behind you and those birds outside should be chirping louder. Let Prince’s passing help us to enjoy all the moments and feel all the feels this weekend!
