Sequins and Sea Breezes: Friday Five

Friday Five

3/28/2014

Yay! It's Friday, Friday. Gotta get down on Friday, everybody's looking forward to the weekend! 


Yup, I just went there, while I'm chowing down on my Frosted Flakes straight out the box at work probably annoying the crap out of the 5 other people who are here right now (sorry guys!). All I can think of while I'm eating these is the "crunch a munch a, crunch a munch a Fritos on my sub!" since that's pretty much what it sounds like. Since giving up bread I've reverted into an 8 year old kid with my breakfast habits and cereal is my go to choice in the morning. Only 25 more days to go... 


1. Absolutely loving this quote. I don't feel like I have the greatest fashion sense, in fact most of the time I feel like there's nothing in my closet worth sharing because my style isn't anything great, it's just me. A lot of times I don't put a whole lot of thought or effort into what I'm wearing and sometimes I look at something and think to myself that I shouldn't wear that but why not? Rules were meant to be broken, right? 



2. I just discovered Lush (I'm a little late to the party, I know) but I absolutely love their stuff so far. I just got this facial cleanser this week but I'm already in love with it. It's a bit strange at first. I won't even tell you what I was thinking when I first put it on because we probably wouldn't be friends any more, but I love the way my skin feels after using it! I haven't been using it that long but once I have I'll write up a little review!


3. I am obsessed with this fireplace mantel! I love the stone work, the candles, the wall mounted tv above the fireplace. SO much gorgeous all in one place. Oh and did I mention it was a complete DIY project? Yeah, crazy right? You can see the before and after pictures and read the DIY instructions on Love and Bellinis (how cute is that blog name?). I'm definitely thinking of giving this a try when I buy a new house!



4. Totally lusting after the Essie 2014 Resort collection. I've been fighting the urge to spend $17 on these but I don't think I'm going to win the battle much longer. I especially love that lighter blue (Find Me An Oasis) and the neutral color (Cocktails and Coconuts). We won't go into what I've been calling the neutral color (again, we probably wouldn't be friends after that). 


5. Since I'm on this "healthier" kick, and I say healthier because let's be real, I could never be a truly healthy eater. I like queso, biscuits and gravy and Reese Peanut Butter Cups WAY too much to ever be truly healthy. Oh and parmesan truffle fries. And country fried steak. Oh and key lime pie... ok, you get the idea! But since I'm trying this whole 30 day challenge thing I was super excited when I found this recipe for a skinny beer-garita on Eat Yourself Skinny. I seriously love her recipes and I've tried some of her skinny drink ideas in the past and have never been disappointed. I'm definitely trying this one this weekend. Beer + tequila + 230 calories = super happy me!

I totally need one of those beer-garitas now. I just found out one of my favorite NFL players just got traded from the Jags to the Raiders. Really? It's been a tough few years for the Jags but I've stood behind them and tried to remain a loyal fan (I have spent a bit more time cheering for my Bengals recently but in all fairness they are my original team!) but getting rid of Maurice Jones-Drew is getting close to crossing the line Jags. You BETTER have some good draft picks (Blake Bortles *cough cough*) this year to make up for that let down! 

Does any one have any fun plans this weekend? Hope everyone has an amazing weekend!

  2. I knew I loved yah but talking about football trades....I love yah even more now! I am such a football gal.....March Madness I mean who cares? I kinda half care because the Gators are doing well but that's about it. Also I know where your mind was going because mine went there automatically. That Essie collection is gorgeous! I think you may need to take the plunge. I can't have sugar cereal or even like flavored Special K in my house. I will literally eat an entire box in one sitting it's not good! Those beergaritas would be amazing out by the pool. Pinning now! Hope you have a fabulous weekend beautiful! xoxoxo

  3. OMGSH I soooo want to try this beergarita thing! Sounds totally ah-mazing :) And I am a huge cereal fanatic--like if it was socially acceptable to eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner--I probably would ha! Also, I am going to need you to come decorate my mantel when we move and I actually have a mantel one day ha--beautiful! I hope you have a fantastic weekend girl.

  9. That fireplace is gorgeous! My neighbor has a very similar one and I have always thought that it was a beautiful focal point in her house. Thank you for your lovely comment on the blog. I wanted to do the downstairs in lighter colors because the upstairs is very colorful with all of the kids' stuff. Very colorful. ;)
