Friday Five : Sports + Superstition edition

           Happy Friday! It's NFL playoff season, which is always an exciting time in the Cute and Mundane household. It's especially exciting this year because my team, the Baltimore Ravens, is headed to the AFC Championship! If you know any hardcore football fans, I'm sure you've run across a gamut of game time superstitions ranging from lucky jerseys to lucky seating arrangement; I'm not normally a superstitious person myself, but I decided to apply a lucky purple pedicure before the playoffs, just in case. Sure enough, the Ravens, who were the clear underdogs last week, defeated the Denver Broncos 38-35 in a double overtime victory! To say it was a dramatic victory, would be an understatement. So, regardless of how illogical it may be, in honor of Ray Lewis' final season,  I'll still be wearing the same Essie Lilacism pedi, chips-be-darned, until the Ravens are either eliminated or take the Vince Lombardi Trophy home to Baltimore! In addition to all the NFL excitement, here's a list of my favorite reads this week:

1. Nicole Richie's unique and chic G.Globes look was absolutely captivating on Temptalia.
2. The Non Blonde discusses how to wear NARS Persia eyeshadow.
3. Check out the lovely olive flashes of YSL Bronze Pyrite on The Beauty Look Book.
4. The Former Girl at Bar shares the gorgeous MAC Orpheus.
5. A heartwarming photo of two NFL greats. See it on USA Today.

          Thanks for reading! Which NFL team do you root for? Do you indulge in any superstitious behavior? Will you be watching the playoffs, or do you have other fun plans this weekend?

Love, Dovey.
