Five on Friday 3/28


Ahhh Friday, I am so happy to see you.  It has sort of been an off week and I'm very ready for the weekend.  I haven't been feeling the best with the weather being so up and down and Nick is smack dab in the middle of hockey playoffs which means that he has had a game every.single.night - including tonight.  I'm so happy his team keeps winning but I also kind of miss him!  I'm looking forward to spending a relaxing weekend together, in between hockey games of course :)  It's also kind of crazy to me that this is the last weekend of March!  Not complaining though - bring it on April!  I'm ready for some warmer weather, Easter, spring flowers and obviously our trip to Florida :)  Here is what's been going on this week...

+ Have any of you tried Neulash?  It's a lash enhancing serum like Latisse.  The big difference is that you don't need a prescription for Neulash, you can actually get it from Nordstrom.  I've been hearing a lot about it lately and am really considering trying it - I just love long eyelashes!  The price is a little on the higher side so if you have any opinions about it either way, I'd love to hear them!


+ Yesterday was our 8 month wedding anniversary!  I can't believe how fast these last few months have gone.  We've started talking about where we want to spend our first anniversary and we've decided on Charleston!  Neither of us has been before but it's always been high on our list to visit.  So far we've got dates set, potential flights and a list of things we want to do while we're there!  Any hotel/bed & breakfast recommendations?


+ I know I mentioned The Good Wife on Tuesday but I'm all caught up now and all I have to say about Sunday's episode is WHAT?!  I did NOT see that one coming!  I'm sad but excited to see where the show goes next.  Craziness.


+ I did some shopping this weekend and found THE perfect maxi dresses at Nordstrom!  They are made by Lush and were very reasonably priced at $38.90.  The dress came in quite a few different patterns/colors and it was took a lot of will power to walk out with only one of them!  I have a feeling I'll be purchasing a couple more of these by the time summer rolls around.  Ps. ignore the terrible quality of this picture and just focus on the cuteness of the dress :)



+ While on said shopping trip, I fell in love with this bag from J Crew.  I will definitely be asking for this baby for my birthday!  It's such a classic bag that I'd use forever.


Cheers to Friday!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Linking up with April, Lauren, Jennie, Rebecca and Casey

  1. Love the bag! Also, we went to Charleston for our 2 year anniversary and had the BEST time. We stayed at the Andrew Pinkney Inn and loved it - they serve breakfast each morning on a cute rooftop patio. Charleston is so so fun - y'all will have a wonderful time!

  3. Oh how fun to go to Charleston. Robert had a business trip there back in January that was cancelled due to weather. So I'm hoping to tag along with him whenever it gets rescheduled. Happy weekend!

  9. yay for Charleston and yay for 8 months of marriage!! I can email you a list of places we went and also a lot of recommendations that we got - but also I did a post of what we did which were all the highlights of the trip!! The good wife was insane of Sunday - I still can't believe it happened and apparently the producers weren't expecting such backlash because they seriously got hate mail!! Love that maxi on you! Happy Friday Doll!

  11. that is a GORGEOUS dress and looks amazing on you :-) ah, Charleston - on the bucket list. enjoy!

  12. Love the bag and the dress! I wish they had a Nordstrom's up here in Kenosha (ha, right!). You'll have to come up for the outlet mall though haha. Buy that last stuff fo so and report back. I'd like to try it but what's the point of making my lashes more luxurious if people can't even see them because they are blonde? haha. Guess they'd be even better with mascara on. Have a great weekend!

  13. You guys will LOVE Charleston! I've only been on day trips there when staying at the beach, but we loved it so much we actually looked into doing a destination wedding there before we got married! That maxi dress is so cute & your short hair looks so cute too!

  15. I absolutely love that purse and dress. You look beautiful! I'm really curious about that lash serum... I've never tried one, I love long lashes too. How exciting about your trip to Charleston, it really seems like the place to be lately, looks so pretty :) Happy weekend!

  16. Wow, less that $40 for that dress? Great find! Happy belated 8 month anniversary!

    ReplyDelete
  17. You had some great finds on your shopping trip! The hubby and I are hopefully getting out today for a shopping excursion, so I may take a look at some of your recommendations. I am now intrigued by that Neulash stuff - I would kill for longer lashes. And, yay for one year anniversary trips! I will always remember your wedding anniversary now since it's also my mom's birthday, ha! I can't wait to hear about all that you have planned for Charleston. Have a great weekend, dear!

  18. Hey girl!! Visiting from the 5 on Friday link up..so glad I came across you! I got super excited when I saw you're planning on going to Charleston. My fiance (Nick!) and I just moved to Summerville, about 25 minutes from Charleston. It's SO fun & we still have so much to explore. You'll love it! I also LOVEE that J.Crew bag! I worked at the JCrew Factory store for a little bit during college & it was so hard not to buy everything..I recently just purchased a similar bag from Urban Outfitters. Wow..end my rant, so nice to meet you!!

  22. We should totally meet up if you come here!! I need that neulash. I've tried over the counter lash serums before with no success but I'm always up for another try! That J Crew bag is just like my Cuyana tote. The best versatile bag! You can wear it in any season!

  27. I have that dress too! I love it! It's so comfortable and the perfect length for this amazon woman!
    The Good Wife...I miss that show. I am SO behind. But I saw a spoiler in this week's PEOPLE magazine, and I got so sad!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Happy 8 months! And you're going to loooove Charleston. Great choice :)

    I'm going to have to look into this Neulash, sounds like a product I just mind need!

    Happy Friday!

  29. That bag is gorgeous! I love that Lush brand. They also sell it at TJMaxx you can find it in the Juniors section for very reasonably prices ;-) I am intrigued by the neuLash but it is very similar pricing to Latisse and I wonder how the results are? Happy 8 months!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. LOVE your new maxi! I'm getting eyelash extensions in a couple of weeks so will let you know how they turn out. Mascara is definitely a more budget-friendly offer, but my friend owns the salon and is doing them for a promotion :) Have a good weekend and feel better soon!

    ReplyDelete
  31. We might be going to Charleston for our anniversary too! So fun! I was looking at that maxi this past weekend - it looks so cute on you! Lush has the best stuff for the best prices!! Have a great weekend girlie!

    ReplyDelete
  32. LOVE the bag!! How big is it by chance? I need a good bag to bring with me that holds a bunch of stuff and still looks amazing haha. And I MUST try that Neulash! thank you so much for heads up on that. I've never heard of it. Oh and that maxi dress???? ADORABLE girl. Awesome pick!

  35. You are SO beautiful! Happy 8 months! I am so jealous you are going to Charleston! You will LOVE it! Not sure how it is price wise, but downtown has some gorgeous hotels, great restaurants and great shopping and farmers market type scenery! Hymans is a delicious lunch spot :)

  36. You are SO right, that bag is classic chic. I love it! I think I need to start watching The Good Wife. I've heard such great things about it so I'm going to add it to my list of must-watch shows. :)
