Five on Friday


1. Favorite Dress: Camilyn Beth Go Go Dress. I have been wanting this dress for soooo long! I told myself I was going to buy it for my 30th birthday but I haven't gotten around to it yet. My husband's work gala is coming up in a few weeks and this dress would be perfect.

2. Favorite Bedding: We have all white bedding and while I love the serene and calming look of an all white bed lately I've had the desire to add some punchy sheets to brighten up the room (perhaps this a byproduct of the absolutely ungodly cold temperatures outside). Biscuit Home recently launched their new season of bedding and I think this Bloomsbury print is gorgeous! I really like the pink to kind of keep with the serene and calming vibe while still adding some color. However, I also love the green. I have been really drawn to hunter green and pink together and I think the green set with some bright pink throw pillows like these would also add the brightness factor I'm looking for without overwhelming the white bedding. Thoughts?

3. Favorite Print: For Like Ever. I, like so many others out there, have been obsessed with the For Like Ever poster for many years.  The Domino Magazine cover featuring the print has been floating around Instagram lately and it reminded of my love for it! I have bought a few prints that I thought might work over our bed but nothing has really been right. The For Like Ever poster might be the ticket, though! Now to decide which color. I really like the the pink and red but I also like the gold. If I go with the green sheets above and pink pillows would the pink and red be too much? I think it might kill my calm and serene vibe a bit? On the flip side, I think the metallic gold might be a bit too muted for the words "For Like Ever". Does that even make sense? Good news is, I won't have the budget to add these items for a couple of more months so I have time to think about which way to go.

4. Favorite Beauty Product: Soapwalla Recover Bath Salts. I've blogged about my love of Soapwalla before-- I've been using the natural deodorant for years. My feet are so tired and achy after standing and walking all day at school so soaking them for a little while in these salts makes them feel so much better. I use the salts the regular way too, in the actual bath, and it makes my skin feel so soft! The smell -- lavender and eucalyptus -- is super relaxing!

5. Favorite Quote: That Laura, always on point!

Happy Friday, Friends! I hope you are staying warm and toasty! I have a 2 hour delay this morning so the pup and I are staying in bed until we absolutely must get out!

  1. I really like the pink and green bedding! I think you could do that with some pink/green throw pillows and the for like ever in pink and still keep the bedroom serene and calming. It would just be a nice addition of color to brighten it up. You definitely need that dess for the gala!

  3. I have had my eye on that dress ... isn't it a showstopper?! Do you know if it runs true to size?
