Five on Friday 5/2


Yay is right!  Friday is here!  :)  This weekend for me means a lot of working but I'm just going to ignore that little fact.  I do get Saturday off thankfully so we'll be heading over to a friends housewarming party.  A little grilling, some cold beverages and Derby watching... it should be a good day!  I may have to attempt to make homemade Mint Juleps - one of my favorite drinks!

Before I get into my Friday Five, I have to share an amazing sale.  Remember the bag that I featured last Friday?  Well it's on sale right now and then 25% off on top of that thanks to Macy's Friends & Family sale (use code RMNFF)!  I may have picked it up yesterday... :)

+ What do you guys think about these floral pants?  Shanna at Because Shanna Said So looks amazing in them but I'm not sure if I could pull them off!  I'm also 100% certain my husband wouldn't be seen in public with me wearing these but that's another story.  They're from Forever 21  so at least they're reasonably priced... I may have to get them and at the very least I'll wear them around the house.


+ You guys know how much I love my candles and I had to stock up on some new ones for the spring/summer months.  Warm season scents are my favorite - I find holiday scents a little strong and overpowering but coconut/strawberry/clean linen/lilac.. those are perfect.  I'm in love with this Coconut Leaves from Bath and Body Works and have a feeling I'll be purchasing a few of them!  Oh, and the 3 wick candles are all 2 for $22 today!


+ How amazing does this Brownie Batter Parfait look?!  Pinterest does it again!  Check out the recipe HERE on Cookies and Cups.  I can't wait to try this!


+ Ebates is like the best invention ever - who doesn't want to get paid to shop?  My problem is that I ALWAYS forget to use it!  I got an email this week about downloading an "Ebates Button" and it's genius.  A button is installed to the right of your browser bar and also provides automatic cash back notifications when you go to participating websites.  It's the second best invention ever - you'll never forget to use Ebates again!  Check it out HERE.


+ Lauren Conrad can do no wrong.  Her blog is a daily read for me and she always has the best articles.  This week she posted some of her Instagram tips & tricks and I thought it was a great list!  Check it out HERE.


What's on your agenda for the weekend?  Have a great Friday!

Linking up with AprilLaurenJennieRebecca and Casey

  2. Um, you need to get those floral pants immediately. I think they would look great on you, especially with your dark hair! I agree about LC, she always is flawless and I enjoyed her post about Instagram, too. Have a great weekend, dear!

  5. That candle looks like it'll be ahhhmazing! And now I'm totally tempted to pick up that bag as a treat to myself :)

  6. Loving that bag you picked up. I currently have a precious white MK bag in my Macy's shopping cart that is marked down from $428 to $220. Which is an amazing sale (couldn't believe that the 25% off applied to it!) but is still expensive so I am weighing my options before purchasing!!! Eeek! I think you could pull off those floral pants - too cute! Shanna is not very tall, so i think they look like they'd be too short on me, but I think you could definitely make them work! Have a good weekend, sweet girl!:)

  8. I am with you on the ebates bandwagon - seriously why wasn't I using this years ago!

    And I'm with you, LC is the bomb. I love everything about her, esp her blog tips and fashion sense.

  9. Wooohoo! New bags are the best.

    I'm sure you could pull off those pants, but honeslty, I'm not a fan of them. A lil too much for my taste, but I'm much more of a classic girl.

    Brownie bites parfait, wait what?!?!?

    Happy Friday!

  11. You are on point today! I love the floral pants and think you should totally rock them! If nothing else you could use them as cute, fun lounge pants, I mean who doesn't need some of those?! Thanks for the ebates button! I just started using it a couple months ago but I forget sometimes, or even when I remember I'm like uhhh did I do this right?!
    Have a great weekend!!! <3

  12. OMG that brownie parfait looks beyond amazing! And LC's Instagram tips is awesome, I'll definitely be using those! I think those pants are adorable but I'm like you, I don't think I could pull them off! Totally worth a try though!

  13. I need to pick up some new summer candle scents too! I'm the same way with Ebates, and getting my husband to use it is even harder. Thanks for the heads up about the browser bar button!

  14. I'm gonna have to go pick up some candles this weekend! Someone mentioned a few months ago about using eBates for airline tickets and I can't believe I never thought about it! PS...love those pants! Happy Friday, sweets!

  15. That brownie parfait looks amazing! And the pants are pretty but I'm sure my bf would feel the same way... there are some trends that only us girls understand. Have a great weekend :)

  19. I love those pants! But I'm pretty sure my bf would be the same way -- he's not always the biggest fan of trends. I say go for it! And definitely checking out that instagram article!

  20. So I just strayed and spent a good 20 minutes on Macy's looking at purses, pretty sure I'll end up with one by the end of the day! And Girl, I love ebates too!

  21. I think those pants are super cute! You could totally pull then off!!

  22. Last night I was JUST at Home Goods and almost got the Strawberry candle because it smelled sooo good! Now I'm definitely wishing I would have picked it up! I have a Ralph Lauren bag in my Macy's shopping cart that is also on sale + the 25% off is seriously tempting me! I'm a fan of the floral pants! I think they're so fun and summery/springy and I'm no fashionista but I feel like it will only get harder to pull of trendy pieces as we get older so might as well take advantage of them now! I think you could totally pull them off!

  23. I need that coconut candle!!! Hope you have a good weekend (wish you didn't have to work!)

  25. I have the same problem with ebates! I thought that button was going to be the magic solution, but I've still missed a couple of times because I thought I pressed it and didn't. So frustrating! Have a great weekend Katie!

    1. Ugh, that sucks! There is nothing worse than realizing 30 seconds after submitting an order that you forgot to use your Ebates!

  26. Aren't 'parfaits' supposed to be healthy? I'll take it as such & now want one of those chocolately yummy ones! :)
    I know I couldn't pull off baggy floral pants, but I've seen jeans floral that are straight leg that I really like.
    Off to check out Instagram tips.
    Happy Friday friend!
