Friday's Five 6/26


I know I say this all the time, but it is INSANE that this is the last Friday of June!  This summer is already going way, way too fast and giving me slight anxiety.  We've only checked one thing off our summer bucket list (getting ice cream, multiple times now) and so this week, I wrote it out and stuck it on the fridge for a daily reminder/kick in the butt that we need to be doing fun stuff! 
  
But anyways, other than my summer panic... here are 5 things from this week:

ONE | Maxi Dress
Remember this dress I mentioned last week?  It came in and it's awesome!  I ordered the XS and it fits very true to size.  The pleats are great and don't wrinkle easily and the dress is just high quality all around.  I kind of want to order it in white, too... I have a thing for white dresses.

TWO | Snapchat
I'm jumping on the Snapchat bandwagon!  Add me @ kavanderploeg (my maiden name - I can't figure out how to change my username, that makes me feel old).

THREE | Amazon + Beauty
I ran out of my eye cream this week but I don't really feel like shelling out the big bucks at the dermatologist when it's half of the price on Amazon.  Do you guys buy skincare/beauty stuff from Amazon?  For some reason I always have this fear that it's going to be expired or a knock off or something.  I like the prices though.

FOUR | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
...is quickly approaching!!  July 9th for cardholders.  And yes, I did get a card last summer just to get early access ;)  The catalog came in the mail this week and I think I circled only 15 things I want.  So much good stuff.  

FIVE | Pineapple Lamp
Want. Need. Will get.  It's adorable and I definitely think all of my Charleston friends need one, too!

Happy Friday!  I'll be heading out of town again for a girls weekend to celebrate a friends wedding shower.  Don't forget to follow along on Instagram and Snapchat :)

  5. Love that dress and the lamp--so cute! I haven't gotten on Snapchat yet, and that kinda makes me feel old too lol
    I say buy the stuff on Amazon--it's probably legit and if it's cheaper, that's a huge win!

  21. I KNOW the Summer is flying by! LOL we have gotten ice cream multiple times as well but that's about the only Summery thing we've done, so sad! Have a great weekend!

  22. I buy almost 90% of my beauty/cosmetic items on Amazon. As long as you check the reviews (or even search by 4 stars and up) you should be good with finding only authentic items. The reviews are totally priceless though; they sucked me into a new $20 mascara I'm loving! Happy weekend :)

  23. That maxi dress is SO cute and it would be so pretty in white!! I'm curious about Snapchat, but at the same time I have zero interest in adding another social media channel to my life. I sound so old and boring I know haha. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!!! :-)
