Sequins and Sea Breezes: Friday Five

Friday Five

10/10/2014

Happy Friday dolls! Or in my case... Happy Fri-yay! I am so happy it's finally Friday. I feel like this week dragged and I'm not going to lie, I'm beyond dragging this morning. Back to back weeks of Thursday night games is definitely taking it's toll on me. We won them both... in REALLY close games so I guess I can't complain but I am so ready for bed... already. Last night went to overtime too and I was having flashbacks of the triple overtime UF game really hoping it didn't come to that. I love my Knights but I'd appreciate more weekend games! I guess I can't complain too much though, it frees up my weekends for other things! Enough complaining, it's time to link up with the lovely Amanda  and Christina for our Friday Favorites!

1. I pinned this from the sweet Christina of Carolina Charm the other day and I absolutely cannot wait to make it this weekend! Christina obviously knows the way to my heart is with bacon and goat cheese :) 


2. Loving this tank from Sophie & Trey and it's only $15! I love a fun graphic tank or tee and let's be real, I am definitely a mermaid at heart! If I get a chance to make it up there this weekend I'm definitely getting it!


3. Bought this nail polish for the UCF game and absolutely loving it! I was a bit hesitant about spending that much on a polish and sometimes I find glitter polishes to be more of a hassle than they're worth but I'm actually really impressed with this one! I think Mermaid's Dream (duh) and Lady Sings the Blues might be next on my must have list!

4. Kind of loving this fall look...except maybe the flower crown (so not me)! From the white shift dress to the plaid shirt and the booties. Everything is perfect! Especially for fall here in Florida. I always find it silly when you see FL bloggers sporting scarves and jackets on their blog when the temperature is still like 88 degrees out. I know it makes sense because the rest of the country is probably experiencing much lower temperatures but I figure I might as well dress for Florida fall! 


5. Ending this week with a little inspiration. A few weeks ago I was going through a bit of a funk and just felt all around down. I'm definitely feeling MUCH better and much more like myself again. Thanks to all of my IRL friends and blogger friends who helped cheer me up and remind me not to worry about the little things. You guys are awesome! 

On that note... I'm going to crash... just kidding, I wish! I'm going to go load up on coffee and hope I can make it through the day without falling asleep at my desk. Especially since I'm temporarily sitting at a desk that's made of wood and has already given me splinters this week! Face splinters just sound awful... Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

  4. I can't believe UCF keeps having all these Thursday night games... not fun! Here's to another Friday Starbucks run ;-)

    Sorry things weren't going well for you, but glad you're feeling better *hugs*.

    And YES to not understanding why FL bloggers wear scarves and boots when it's still so hot out. I sweat just picturing their photo shoots lol. Love that we're on the same page for how to dress for Florida's fall!

    HAPPY FRIDAY!

  5. I love that Lippmann polish!! And I'll happily encourage you to indulge in some others of hers - haha! I figure there are way worse guilty pleasures than a couple of bottles of nail polish. I have both of those other colors and they are fantastic!! And I love that fall look - it looks so effortless and chic (though I'm with you on that flower crown..definitely a no go!). Hope you have a great weekend! xoxo
