Five on Friday 4/4

This week has gone super slow for me - doesn't that always seem to happen when you're anticipating vacations?! - so I'm very happy to see Friday!  I'm going to keep this short + sweet today since we're busy busy getting ready to leave for Florida bright and early tomorrow morning!

+ I've been considering starting a little vitamin regimen.  I'm looking for a good multi-vitamin and also want to start taking Vitamin E (for skin) and Biotin (for hair and nails).  Anyone have any good recommendations?


+ I'm not sure if I've ever professed my love for the NYX Butter Glosses on the blog before but they are amazing.  Go out and buy one for yourself - better yet, buy 5 of them since they're only $4.99 (at Ulta).  Tiramisu is my favorite neutral and I picked up a couple bright colors this week for our trip.  I think they're going to look so good with a tan!


+ Ever wondered what guys think about important things like Pinterest, Hunter boots or the Pantone color of the year?  I interviewed my husband, Nick, this week and his answers were slightly hilarious.  Check it out HERE!


+ My girl, Jessica over at The Newly Blog, posted about Edith Marie jewelry this week and I am hooked!  For some reason, I don't think twice to shell out $200+ on a pair of shoes but have a hard time spending $50+ on jewelry.  I know, it's strange.  Edith Marie jewelry has THE most reasonable prices and everything is adorable.  This Jamie necklace is already on its way to me - it's only $15.99!


+ The only downside to going on vacation is packing!  Against my better judgement, I booked our flights on Spirit Airlines because they had the best times.. and I'm already regretting that.  Among other things, Spirit now charges to CARRY ON bags!  Isn't that crazy?!  I refuse to pay $130 to fly two bags round trip so Nick and I are trying to pack everything into one suitcase.  I'm notorious for over packing so this has been quite a challenge!


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  Don't forget to follow along with me on Instagram (ka5ohare) for some fun vacation pictures!  :)

  2. My doctor told me that Prenatal has all the vitamins a woman needs and although you may not be looking for a baby we all need the supplements they have. It's an alternative on vitamins lol. And about the packing I here ya, last vacation I searched all youtube on how to pack a suitcase and that helped me a lot.

  3. Just last week I was looking for new vitamins. It's hard to find a good one because there is SO much information out there. But my doctor did tell me that it never hurts to start a prenatal even if you aren't trying to get pregnant. You'll have to let us know what you find! And good luck with the packing! I ALWAYS over pack so there's no way I could share with the hubs.

  5. Love that necklace!! I'm going to have to check out that brand ASAP. I've never heard of Spirit Airlines and their luggage policy sounds crazy!! Good luck sharing a suitcase... sounds like a bit of a nightmare to this queen of over packing :) Hope you have a great weekend

  6. Hope you have the best time on your vacation (which you will duh)!!! If you find a great biotin brand let me know - i've been looking for one as well!! I have got to get my hands on this Butter Gloss everyone keeps talking about - there is a 5 pack on amazon that has been in my cart for like 2 weeks!!! Hope you have a great time on vacation!

  7. Spirit and their stupid carry on rule! I always over pack and after years of work traveling with kids got pretty good at keeping it small. I buy there http://www.amazon.com/Tide-Travel-Sink-Packets-3-Count/dp/B000GCS004/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1396617333&sr=8-1&keywords=handwash+packets and wash clothes as we go. Ghetto, but it helps. I hope you guys have the BEST trip!!! Can't wait to see pictures!!

  8. I take almost those same exact vitamins (when I remember, that is...) only I do folic acid instead of vitamin E. I definitely notice a difference in my hair and nails when I take them regularly. So I should probably get on that again...
    I'm the same way about jewelry so when I saw the price of that necklace I was like what the WHAT?
    I applaud your packing skills. I have a hard enough time fitting my own stuff in one suitcase. So excited for you, hope you have a GREAT trip!

  9. Looking forward to reading everyone's responses about the vitamins! I know I should be taking something, but I don't... The necklace you ordered is absolutely adorable! I actually have the Edith Marie website open in another tab so I don't forget to check them out. :) Have a great time in FL!

  10. I take a multivitamin, extra folic acid(I can explain later if you'd like-not for personal reasons!), omega 3 and biotin.

    Charging for bags is so overrated. I've stuck to just flying united and jet blue because of that. However, I do want to splurge on Virgin one day!

  11. That picture of you and Nick= SWOON! You look gorgeous!

  12. I just take a multivitamin every day - I have to take the chewable gummies because I have a hard time swallowing big pills! I need to check out that jewelry site stat - I'm always on the hunt for affordable statement necklaces. Have a GREAT time on vacation, and travel safe!

  13. Girl, you look so pretty in that pic! Well you always do, but you know. I take a ridiculous amount of vitamins.... My multivitamin of choice is the GNC Women's Ultra Mega Energy & Metabolism, whew that's a mouth full. Have an AMAZING time in FL, I will be stalking your IG for pics :)

  14. Yes ma'am, vitamins are mega must! Have a great weekend.

  16. Ooh must try Nyx lip gloss. Can't wait to check out the jewelry line, too. Have a wonderful FL trip. You are going to be so freaking tan!

  17. i take biotin + b12 for energy. i haven't noticed a difference in my hair and nails because i have only been taking for like 2 weeks, but i swear the difference in my energy from the b12 is unbelievable. i dont care if its in my head, i just care for the difference! i am a horrible overpacker as well and am just starting to think about what to take when we go on holiday in june, and i'm already anxious about it! have a great weekend!

  18. I'm the same way about buying jewelry. I'll spend tons on clothes but refuse to spend $50 on a necklace. I recently started taking a prenatal vitamin, not pregnant dr recommended it, and I think it had vitamin E in it. I also take D3 daily because most of us are low in vitamin D. I know I am bad. Have a fun vacation!!

  19. I just saw an interview with the people from Spirit airlines. Don't they even charge for drinks & snacks on the flight? But they said they'd never charge to use the toilet.. nice...

  20. HAPPY VACAY LADY!!! -can't wait to see pics- I use the first and third vitamins (that exact brand) and love them!

  21. First of all I'm SO jealous. Enjoy your vacay babe! I swear by biotin and I also love fish oil. It shows in my hair and nails. <3

  22. YUCK packing!!!!! Butter glosses for the win!!! My collection is constantly growing :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Whaaat, how can they charge to carry-on?! So annoying! I'm an under-packer, which is always a good thing, until we get somewhere and I don't have enough clothes! haha. I take the adult gummy-vites-- I can't think of the brand, but I know they have biotin in them-- not sure about vitamin E though!

    Have so much fun on your trip! Do you leave tomorrow?

  28. Okay, I can't wait to read your hubby's thoughts on Hunter Boots, because I have them, and my husband totally doesn't get it...according to him, they look like something you could get for $10 at Peavy Mart. Psssh. Have fun on your vacation!

  29. I have been obsessing over the color "Fortune Cookie" by NYX Butter Gloss!!!

  30. Holy cow girl, you are brave! I don't know if I could share a suitcase with mu husband for a vacation lol. Unless it is a long weekend to my parents! I love to overpack! You just never know! ;)
    I am going to have to check out this jewelry site! That necklace is fabulous!!
    Have a fun and safe trip!

  33. Spirit charges for carry on bags??? That’s crazy! I take the adult gummy multivitamins from Target and MegaRed fish oil (I swear it’s helped me hair more than Biotin!).

    ReplyDelete
  34. Gorgeous necklace! And I'm pretty sure I have the middle bottle of biotin? Which I'm needing to get back on a regiment because now that my hair is healthy again, I'm hoping it will grow longer and thicker! Happy Friday! xo

  35. Flying is such a money pit these days, good luck with one suitcase!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I've heard some not so good things about spirit...I hope your experience isn't too bad minus the already negative aspect of paying for the bags! That's so obnoxious

    ReplyDelete
  37. The only bummer about the butter glosses is that I can't swatch them to see which shades would look good on me. I hate it when you can't swatch makeup items!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've never tried Spirit Air and now I'm curious.

    I just started taking vitamins myself. I am taking D3, omega 3, b12, E, and one specifically for hair, skin, and nails. So far I do feel more energetic. Still waiting to see how my nails start reacting to them.

  39. Loved nicks post!! I'm terrible about taking vitamins but have been seriously thinking about disciplining myself & taking some. I know you're having a great time in FL!
