The fab five is posted every Friday to end the week on a happy note and features items on my radar that I’m loving right now. Who knows, you might find something that could be on your fab five list!
What are you up to this weekend? Justin and I are recovering from our weekend at Coachella by ways of NyQuil and decongestants (which makes me feel like saying this). This weekend we are taking it easy getting lots of sleep, a much-needed massage, and catching up on TV. Yes.
On to this week’s fab five:
1. Recipe of the week: Feta and Lemon Dip (via Sweet Paul Eat & Make Cookbook)
I love feta cheese and when combined with lemon and olive oil, this dip sounds like a whole lot of yummy. Pair with veggie sticks or pita bread for a healthy and delicious snack. Looks super easy to make and would be a great appetizer for parties!
2. Sephora Collection Spray on Foundation $26
I’m so glad my sister and I decided to wait in line and check out the Sephora tent at Coachella, because Inside was a beauty junkie’s paradise that was sure to make my husband run the other way (he’s smart though and made a bee-line to the Samsung tent faster than we could say “want to come with us?”). Packed with phone charging stations and self-service counters with skin and makeup essentials, this spray on foundation hit the jackpot. Spray it on a brush (not directly to your face) and apply for flawless skin. It lasted pretty much all day at Coachella in the sun, wind and dust. Super lightweight and non-oily. Consider me sold.
3. Recycled Newspaper Mirror $90
Love this mirror made with recycled newspapers. The neutral color goes in any room, the texture is fun and unique and the size is perfect as an accent piece or a wall statement depending on the room. Sold at Bed Bath and Beyond which always has those 20% off coupons.
4. California Coast
Justin and I decided to drive down the 1 to Palm Springs for Coachella so he could show me the beautiful California coast. He wasn’t kidding about the amazing views. We kept stopping to take some pictures with my new camera and taking in the gorgeous mountains and beautiful water. It is truly nature at it’s best.
5. Song Pick: Arcade Fire “Wake Up”
Kind of love this band so much more after seeing them perform live at Coachella. They put on an amazing show, ending with a walk-out through the audience followed by a marching band with the song “Wake Up”. it wasn’t even about their music specifically, but the emotion that was felt throughout. It was the perfect ending to Coachella, swaying back and forth with my husband and sister, just enjoying the moment and weekend. If you were there you know what I’m talking about. *the video above is from 2011 but performance was similar*
That’s it for me, have a great weekend everyone!
