Friday Five 3.18.16

IT’S BAACCKKKK! The new and improved Friday Five! Take your seats, hold your applause! I took a bit of a hiatus from posting any Friday Fives, because I loved the concept, and I loved the content I shared via these posts, but they weren’t exactly what I wanted them to be. That bothered me. If something isn’t how I want it, it seriously weighs on my mind all day, every day. Sounds extreme, but I’m serious! If my room isn’t clean, all I can picture when I’m at work or trying to have a fun night out is the pillow that is out of place on my bed, or the pile of clothes I never got around to hanging up #torture So, I knew I had to fix this series to more closely fit my vision.

I just wanted it to be more fluid, and include more than just five captioned photos. So, here’s what I have come up with! I really like the idea of categories, mostly because it’s a clever way to sneak in way more than just five things, and because the categories can be variant from week to week. I’m sticking with this format for now, but who knows! I’m ever changing, so the Friday Five may get a few more make overs down the road. That’s what I want though, the ability for my blog to change and grow with me and with my preferences.  Thanks for hanging in there while I figure things out!


I hope you have a fantastic weekend, and I hope you enjoy Friday Five 2.0

Five Things on My Wish List

  1. These booties! (…and these, and these)
  2. This back pack (I used my mom’s in Disney World and now I want one of my own!)
  3. Big Magic, a book I’ve been meaning to read for awhile now!
  4. These sunglasses (quality = questionable…but, I don’t want to spend Dior price)
  5. Pretty much everything in the new Kate Spade collection..but mostly this keychain

Five Things I’m Loving

  1. My Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. OhmyGAWD! It’s flawless, it lasts ALLLL day, and it looks like my skin, but better! I’ll never abandon you again!
  2. Game of Thrones (Confession: I watched all 5 seasons in under 3 weeks…hurry up season 6!)
  3. Fuller House (Soooo cheesy, but so satisfying!)
  4. The warmer weather! Peace out, winter.
  5. The time change; You can have my hour of sleep! I LOVE that it’s lighter longer.

Five Things I Recommend

  1. Zootopia; Ted and I saw this last Saturday and I thought it was super clever, and cute! Now, as a huge Disney fan I’m slightly biased, but even Ted enjoyed it!
  2. Fruit flavored gum to curb sugar cravings; With bikini season around the corner, I’ve been trying (key word: TRYING) to exercise a bit more self control when it comes to my sweet tooth. I’ve found that popping a piece of fruity gum can sometimes help to prevent me from eating an entire bag of M&Ms…sometimes!
  3. Mac’s Boldly Bare lipliner and Myth lipstick for the perfect nude lip
  4. This video! (I’m probably late to the party, but this guy COMPLETELY encapsulates Robin Williams. It’s beyond impressive!)…You should probably just check out his whole YouTube channel while you’re at it!
  5. Say “Yes”; I’m working on saying yes to more things that scare, at least one at week.

Five Blogs You MUST Follow

  1. Chronicles of Frivolity; Katey’s blog has been one of my favorites since I discovered the world of fashion blogs. Her sense of style and interior decorating skills are AMAZING! I also really appreciate her openness and transparency when it comes to her faith.
  2. The Sweetest Thing; Emily has killer style, amazing beauty product reviews, and the best hair I’ve ever seen!
  3. Natalie Was Here; The first person I messaged with questions about starting my own blog was Natalie of Natalie Was Here. She was definitely a huge inspiration and example for me, and her blog is eclectic and so relatable.
  4. Color Me Courtney; Courtney’s blog is a breath of fresh air and, go figure, a dose of color! Her colorful, cute fashion sense and her positive messages regarding body image and self confidence have quickly made me a loyal follower.
  5. A Southern Drawl; Grace is as stylish as the girl is strong! I enjoy her workout routine posts as much as I enjoy her fashion sense.
