Sequins and Sea Breezes: Friday Five

Friday Five

4/25/2014

Yay! It's Friday dolls! We made it through yet another week, that's definitely something to celebrate! Four times a year we do this thing at work called Loco where we all go out and do something fun as a company and today is that day! This time happens to be my favorite Loco where we all go to this little place on a river here that has a bar, adirondack chairs, a sand volleyball court, little cabanas, kayaking/canoeing and more! I love getting to spend time outside in the sun just relaxing. We used to get to leave early for the day to do this but unfortunately this time we don't get to leave until 4 pm so I won't get as much sun but it still should be enjoyable. Hopefully the mosquitos won't be out in full force! 
Meet At The Barre

It's time for my Friday Favorites with one of my favorite people, Amanda from Meet at the Barre

1. Hello meatless Monday! I found this amazing recipe on Pinterest when I was looking for ideas for meatless Monday and I'm in love. Pasta, lemon and parmesan? What's not to love? I actually made this before with goat cheese (because I'm obsessed with goat cheese) which made it creamier but the parmesan gives it a but of a nutty flavor and I actually really liked it!

 2. It's almost bikini season! I'm absolutely loving the colors in this L*Space bikini and the tie front bandeau top. I don't usually wear bandeaus since I usually require a little more support *sad face* but this one is just too cute! I'm also obsessed with her layered necklaces!

3. Yeah, Mila is my total girl crush. I can't believe she's preggers! Although her and Ashton are way too cute together so I shouldn't be surprised. I mean I didn't watch That 70's Show but everyone knew Jackie and Kelso were going to be together forever. ;) I actually pinned this though because I think I'm ready to get rid of the blonde in my hair and go back to being a 100% brunette! 

4. Obsessed with this color right now! It's called Cab-ana by Essie (obviously) and it's my new favorite summer color! It reminds me of the Caribbean and I feel like it will look amazing with a nice tan! 

5. Ahh Siesta Key. How I miss you. I am in desperate need of some beach therapy soon. Yesterday was a bit stressful and kinda sad/disappointing but salt water cures all. If your toes in the sand and a drink in hand doesn't make you smile I don't know what will. Besides puppies. 

On that note, I hope everyone has an amazing and fabulous weekend!

  11. I def need to paint my fingers. Been too lazy/cheap to get them done but this weekend seems to be screaming to me to do them already ha. And I need to hit up Siesta I can't believe I've never been in the forever years I've lived here! What is wrong w/ me ha. Ok maybe because it's a tad far for a day trip.

  12. That nail color is so beautiful, wow. My nails are blue this week as well, but it's deeper and not nearly as pretty. Isn't Mila the best? She's gorgeous but I love her personality too. I just pinned that recipe - thanks for that.

    XOXO

  21. Amen to that last ecard! Girl you have to let me know the next time you go to Siesta Key because I will be there in a heartbeat and we can finally meet and get some drinks! I am obsessed with all things goat cheese. Mark when we first were together had a potential "allergy" to it but we got over that very quickly....I introduced it slowly and without telling him and he survived so it's all good now ;-) Is that evil? muhahahahahaha I hope you have a fab weekend and your work loco outing sounds amazing!!!! xoxoxo

    1. Oh I will definitely be texting you if I make a trip that way any time soon! We definitely need to meet up for cocktails! Haha definitely not evil... goat cheese is a necessity in life! Just like wine!

  26. I love this post! That bikini is so cute, but I'm in the same boat of needing more support. :( I just think blue manicures in general look awesome with a tan, but that one in particular is perfect for summer! I would love to get in some beach time too, but I don't live anywhere near the ocean! Pools will have to do, I suppose. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your work group day out!

    1. Me too Lauren! Blue is almost always a perfect choice for a mani! Don't worry, I don't live super far from the beach and I barely make it out there. The pool is just so much more convenient!
