Sequins and Sea Breezes: Friday Five

Friday Five

3/27/2015

 
Happy Friday lovelies! I am so happy it's almost the weekend! Don't get me wrong, I didn't have a bad week or anything, it was just extremely busy and every time I think I've gotten my schedule figured out life throws me a curve ball and things get hectic again! I'd complain but I love my job so I can't really complain about being busy. This week I got to meet Dan Aykroyd and Tito Beveridge (of Tito's Handmade Vodka), make a few fun cocktail recipes for the blog, do a little tequila tasting and get an awesome Mexican lunch but for all of the fun things I have a lot of responsibilities and some days I'm in so many meetings I barely spend 45 mins at my computer! Ok, enough of that; let's get into our Friday favorites with my girl, Amanda!


1. I'm some what of a watch freak so when I came across this beauty I immediately became obsessed. It's SO pretty and perfect for spring! Although they have a bunch of gorgeous watches right now, how to choose!?
2. I seriously cannot wait for April. I am dying over the Lilly for Target collection. So many bright, fun pieces that I can't wait to scoop up for spring/summer. I seriously want one of everything but this dress is just SO Lilly. 


3. I picked up this pretty pink nail polish from the Covergirl spring 2015 collection. Totally obsessed. It's definitely Barbie car pink and I love it. Definitely unlike any other color I have. 


4. Since I'm not able to get to the gym as much as I used to I'm trying to eat healthier. Unfortunately I am NOT a healthy eater. I love pasta, all things fried and cheese. Always cheese. This healthier version of fettuccine alfredo is definitely getting made this weekend.


5. So about that whole diet thing... yeah. I don't count alcohol. I'm trying my hand at making a Moscow Mule for the first time this weekend. I have PLENTY of vodka so I need to do something with it, right? Wish me luck!

Hope everyone has an amazing weekend!

  1. I'm with you too, lady! I'm stoked it's Friday but my week wasn't bad, it was actually pretty awesome, too! Glad you had a great week and feel more settled with your schedule, that's important.

    That watch is fabulous and wooohooo LP at Target. How quick do you think everything is going to sell out!?!? I'm guessing 5 minutes haha!

    Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend!

  2. Healthier fettuccine alfredo - YES PLEASE!!! I love the new pink nail polish - I went through a phase junior year of high school where that was the main color I wore year round...it was Florida so it was OK! :) I hope you have the best weekend!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  3. I saw the Lily for Target last night and was drooling too--so much pretty (and so reasonably priced!!)
    My husband makes moscow mules at home all the time and it's super easy! You just need to find ginger beer at the store which can be a bit tricky sometimes. Im sure yours will be awesome!
    Have a great weekend!!

  4. That watch is fabulous, and yes, perfect for spring! I cannot wait until April 19th, I have a feeling it's going to be the biggest collaboration for Target yet.

  5. The Lilly for Target collection is amazing and the prices are so good too! I and dying for some of the home items and obviously the clothes! I also think it is going to be totally chaotic and every Target collab is! The Moscow Mule is my fave and we made them at home a few weeks ago, I think its hard to go wrong, perfect and refreshing! Have a great weekend!! -Kate

  19. Oh that watch!! Gosh, Michael Kors can do no wrong- gimme allllll the watches! I actually got my first MK watch this week! I chickened out from getting the gorgeous rose gold and just went with silver. I need to break myself into wearing jewelry again! But I plan on stacking it with rose gold bracelets, HA!
    Checking out that fettuccine recipe right now! I seriously had to limit our pasta dishes to once a week because we would eat it every day if my behind allowed it ;)

  20. I am clearly a bad fashion blogger because how did I not know that Lilly was coming to Target??? That dress is adorable! Oh Moscow Mules how I love you. Did I tell you I got two sets of those mugs for my bridal shower and I didn't even register for them? I think people are trying to tell me something......hope you have a fab weekend love!

  23. Your job sounds absolutely amazing, can I tag along? And I'm totally co-signing the alcohol not counting, I'm guilty of the same way of thinking especially on the weekend!
