Sequins and Sea Breezes: Friday Five

Friday Five

6/06/2014

 
Happy Friday dolls! We made it through the first week of June! Not going to lie, June is not usually a great month for me (despite being my birthday month) and this year is proving to not be the exception. I'm definitely trying to stay positive and hope better things will come my way soon but it's definitely tough at times. Most of it is trivial things that I probably shouldn't get upset over but some things are bigger and definitely require a glass of wine (or in the case of last Friday, vodka) so if I seem to be in a "mood" one day just ignore it and trust me, it's not you! 
 
Meet At The Barre

Enough of the boring problems in my life... it's Friday and you know what that means! Time to team up with the ever so amazing Amanda from Meet @ The Barre for our weekly Friday Favorites! I gotta admit, this girl does an amazing job at cheering me up when I'm feeling down just by shooting me an e-mail so thanks Amanda! :) 



1. Starting off the post with a little inspiration/motivation. I'm determined to make this June the exception to the past however many sucky Junes! And seriously any quote with glitter is a winner in my book. Who doesn't like a little sparkle every once in awhile? 



2.  My annual trip to Key West is less than a month away (YAY!) and I've been trying to find the perfect Key West appropriate 4th of July dress. I found the first dress and absolutely fell in love with it. Then I found the red and I love the crochet detail and the cross back but I'm worried outside of Key West it might not be appropriate. I don't know which dress to wear for 4th! What do you think?


3. Going out tonight to this Asian street fare restaurant to celebrate Shannon's (at Upbeat Soles) husband's birthday and I'm super excited to get to have their Roti Canai with spicy curry dipping sauce again! It was absolutely heavenly... and their curry meatballs. YUM!

4. I've been trying to come up with birthday ideas to give to my family and I've been having the worst time coming up with anything I want this year. There are so many things I want  (ok, really only two things) that aren't tangible and that my family can't give me. But one thing I have had my eye on for awhile is this Coordinates Collection necklace. I think it's just the sweetest thing!

5. Lusting over this girl's outfit and how she can totally rock the sheer dress. If I tried to replicate this outfit I'd definitely look more like a street walker than effortlessly chic like she does. And her hair is definitely making me think I need to keep my balayage highlights through summer!

 By the way, I have an obsession with Someecards if you haven't already noticed. I've been holding back on the count of not wanting to offend someone or ya know, making you guys think I'm crazy (only slightly, I swear) but Friday could use a few laughs so here are a few of my favs from this week: 




You're welcome. ;) Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

  13. I absolutely love that blue dress, I feel like it would look like perfection with a red lip. That sheer dress could totally be a beach cover up for your trip. No better place to rock that kind of look than on holiday! I hope your June gets better, it's my birthday month too!

  24. An annual trip to Key West sounds fabulous! I've only been once, and am thinking maybe the long drive turned us off to making it happen more often. They have non-stop flights on Southwest now from Orlando so that is very tempting!

    Happy Friday :-D

  25. Aw girl I feel ya on the whole difficult month of June issue. I'm dealing with some problems myself and I heavily believe in many glasses of wine in order to deal with said problems!! At least you have an awesome trip to Key West planned!!! That coordinates necklace is so adorable too!

    ReplyDelete
  26. The last one cracked me up! and cheers to drinking wine! :) Nothing like a little vino to make any problem seem smaller! Happy weekend!

  27. I like both those dresses, but I lean more towards the blue, 'cause it seems like an ocean-worthy color. Hahaha a slap in the face always happens for a reason.

  30. YES to your ecards. The bully one is totally going in my mommy-one-day-file haha. Love the red dress if you're hoping to get more wear out of it? But then again, you have a killer body so get the blue and wear it to church! Or to... a restaurant hah. Happy weekend!

  33. That Ecard about "it happens for a reason" is the funniest thing I've seen in days. Instant mood uplifter! I don't know what the Key West scene is like, but I love both your dress options. Stay positive girl, and have a great weekend!
