Sequins and Sea Breezes: Friday Five

Friday Five

3/13/2015

 
Happy Friday loves! Woohoo, we made it! The first week after the time change is always the hardest so hopefully it will be easier next week. Although I do have to admit, I've been loving the longer daylight hours. I've been fully taking advantage by riding my bike every night after I get home and I'm pretty proud of myself. I rode 12.6 miles in two days! Not bad, right? Especially since I haven't ridden a bike in like 15 years... well at least not a moving one! I'm definitely looking forward to taking it out more before it gets too hot. The weather is supposed to be pretty nice this weekend so I'm hoping I'll get some riding time in this weekend... or maybe some pool time. I'll take either! Let's get started on our Friday Favorites with my girl Amanda now!
 
 
 
1. I purchased this super cute cami from J.Crew this week and I must say, I'm obsessed! It's so cute and comfy and it's a silky material so it's perfect for work or play. I wore it to work tucked into a pencil skirt with a sweater then threw on shorts and sandals when I got home and it was perfect! Now I wish I bought it in every color...
 
 
2. Warmer weather definitely has me dreaming of the beach. Since I'm not doing my annual Key West trip this year I definitely plan on hitting up the beach. A lot. How could is this bikini? Seriously, can she stop making such adorable bikinis?
 
 
3. Amanda and Ashley have gotten me hooked on this app. Sorry Pinterest, you've officially been topped when it comes to pinning and shopping. I love that you can buy things straight from the app, no more clicking on something you like and having it take you to a page that can't be found. It can be a bit dangerous though...in a good way!
 

 
4. I bought this candle for my office and I'm absolutely loving it. The scent is amazing and not too heavy. It literally reminds me of Night Blooming Jasmine where you'll smell it at random times instead of constantly. There were so many amazing scents to choose from. I think I'll be going with the Island Coconut next time to get my beach dreaming in.
 
 
 5. Jaclyn posted this recipe months ago and I've been dying to make it ever since but just never got around to it. Well I'm finally doing it this weekend! It's been in the back of my mind teasing me and I just can't wait any longer! I mean, it has goat cheese in it. I can't believe I've managed to wait to try it for this long!
 
Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

  26. Love the 'kini you picked out! The criss cross back is super cute. You don't understand how excited I am for beach days ahead! We should plan a trip to New Symrna or Cocoa. Do you guys drive to Key West for your annual trip or fly/take the ferry?

  27. I love Keep! I actually won an art print a couple months ago through their Keep It Win It program, so I'm a huggge fan.. and definitely recommend entering their Keep It contests... you never know, right?! I love that cami, especially that gorgeous color! Have a great weekend! xoxo

  28. 2 of my favorite things are candles + swim suits! The scent of that candle sounds amazing... and that swim suit is a MUST HAVE. It sounds like you are settling in to the new time zone. It's always nice to have longer evenings. Except now I live in Phoenix and we don't have the time change but the sun is still out longer this time of year, regardless. I hope you have a great weekend!
