Sequins and Sea Breezes: Friday Five

Friday Five

3/21/2014


Did anyone else feel like this week completely dragged on? Maybe it's just me but I really feel like this week too longer than it should have. I had a surprisingly busy week so I don't know if that's what made it go by so slow or if that should have sped it up a bit. Either way, I'm super glad it's Friday and my off day at the gym! I have to admit, the weather this week has been amazing and I'm totally loving the longer days. I'm really hoping the weather this weekend will continue to be nice since I have to make a trip up to Jacksonville this weekend and I'm hoping to get some beach time in! :) 


1. Straight up obsessed with these Tieks!! I've been wanting a pair of Tieks for a ridiculously long time now I just haven't wanted to spend $200 on a pair of flats (I don't even own the Reva flats, I seriously am like the only person in the world who doesn't own a pair) but these I might have to make an exception for. SO cute!!

2. Totally lusting over this MK Weston bag! I can't decide whether I like it in black or brown more though. I absolutely love the tassel detail (I swear in my past life I must have been a cat because I love anything with fringe/tassels, except strippers, and I will sit there and play with it all day completely unconsciously. Is that weird?) and I'm one of those people who does better with zippered purses since mine ALWAYS tends to fall over and spill out everything I'm carrying.  


3. I need to make these mashed potato pancakes, stat. Mashed potatoes and goat cheese are literally two of my favorite things so combining them together into one fabulous, dreamy concoction is heaven. I found the recipe for these wonders here (you can also find them on my Pinterest) and I absolutely cannot wait to make them!


4. I am missing EVERYTHING about this city. I seriously am in love with London, I would move there in a heartbeat if it wasn't so expensive. I'm convinced I was born to live in London. Every time I'm over there I'm able to navigate the city and the Tube like I've been there the whole time. I just love everything about it from the history to the architecture, even the food (and yes, I know people usually don't like English food but I love me some bangers and mash). I'm sad I just found out about all of these amazing rooftop bars but now I have another excuse to go back (like I need an excuse...)


5. I just bought this shampoo bar from Lush and I'm super excited about it. I've read great things about it and it's supposed to be great for thin/fine hair, which I totally have. It looks kinda weird but it smells amazing and if it actually works I'll be ridiculously excited! I'll keep you updated on it once I have formed an actual opinion. 

Hope everyone has an amazing weekend! :)

  5. don't worry, you're not the only one who doesn't have TB flats. i always hear how uncomfortable they are! i'm wearing a pair from gap that i LOVE. i've worn them for years and they're so freaking comfy, it's like i'm barefoot. omg at first i thought the shampoo bar pic was like a science experiment haha

    1. Haha I know, it looks SO weird but if it works I'll be happy! I always hear about how uncomfortable Tory flats are too! At least I'm not the only one! :)

  8. Those shoes are adorable and those pancakes look sooooooo delicious. I have that shampoo! Both my husband and I love it. We were really skeptical at first, but now we've bought a second bar!

    P.S. I nominated you for a Liebester Award! http://howtomakehome.blogspot.com/2014/03/liebester-award.html

  11. So many great things okay
    1) I don't have these either but I was talking to a girl at Barre the other day who was wearing them and swore by them. The most comfortable shoes she has ever worn. I hated my Reva's I sold all of them! They were the most uncomfortable things ever!
    2) The bag is so gorgeous! Hard choice between the two colors!! They both would go with anything.
    3) Goat cheese and mashed potato pancakes....heaven....anything with goat cheese...heaven
    4) I am obsessed with London and rooftop bars I think that would be my excuse for going back too! ;-)
    5) I need to hear more about this shampoo bar! You know me with my fine hair so I am definitely intrigued!

    Hope you have a fab weekend girl! xoxo

    1. Really?? Maybe they're worth the $200 if they really are that comfortable then! Every one I've ever talked to has said that the Revas are so uncomfortable so I never got them. I'm kinda glad I didn't! I agree, anything with goat cheese is total heaven!! I'll let you know how I end up liking the shampoo, my fingers are crossed it's a miracle product :) Have a great weekend!!!

  13. yes! This week dragged in! I love your picks, they pancakes look insane!! I love pancakes so much might have them for breakfast just now.. i'm so surprised to hear you love London so much! I live in the UK and I would never live in London, just see it as not a nice place to live unless they crazy expensive parts like Chelsea! However I have been to New York a few times and i'd die to live there lol, maybe thats the British in me and the American in you ... want to move away lol!

    Also stay in Florida, the weather int he Uk is freezing i'd do anything to be in the sun just now!

    Have a happy Saturday!

    1. Hahaha that is funny! I like NYC but I don't think I'd ever want to live there. I love London! I guess it's true what they say, the grass is always greener on the other side! :) Have an amazing weekend!!
