Friday Finds – September 29, 2017

Happy Friday – but more importantly, Happy National Coffee Day! As a major coffee drinker, today is up there with Christmas for me. In honor of this occasion, I figured I would have today’s “Friday Finds” be dedicated to all things coffee. Of course, if you’re looking for additional ways to celebrate, check out this list of places that are offering deals today.

Tom Ford Candle (link)

My love affair with Tom Ford continues – the description of this candle sounds amazing. It’s the perfect mix of “coffee shop” and “earthy, sophisticated” scents for your home – definitely worth the price tag!

“Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” on Netflix
