friday’s fab five {8.22.14}

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? I’m hanging out with family before heading out to an Indian wedding next week (so pumped). As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized how important family (especially parents) are, and hanging with them is pretty great.

Here’s this week’s fab five:

1. Fitbit with Tory Burch $195

The designers are getting in on the wearables people! This bracelet is super pretty and smart at the same time. That’s how I like my jewelry.

2. Recipe of the week: Summer “Licuado”

A licuado is Spanish for shake, and this one is as cool and refreshing as those hot summer days almost beg for. This one looks especially delicious.

3. Pop-Up Sunflower Notecards $20

How cute are these cards? I love this pop of sunshine when you want to make someone feel better or send them a “Just Because” card. Love.

4. How to Cut Fruit (via PureWow)

I love fruit like watermelon, pomegranate and mango, but it’s such a mess to cut and I know I’m doing every single thing wrong. I like how easy these videos make it look. Do you know how to cut up a grapefruit, mango, pomegranate and pineapple?

5. Song Pick: Enrique Iglesias “Bailando”

So this one is more for my sister, who loves her some Enrique, but this song is totally on my replay list.

That’s it for me, have a great weekend everyone!

friday’s fab five {8.15.14}

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 taking it easy, hanging out with some friends and sleeping in. When is the last time you took a weekend to do nothing? It’s amazing what it can do to your soul.

Let’s get to this week’s fab five:

1. OneDay App (free on iPhone and iPad only right now)

My mom would be ALL over this app when my sisters and I were little. Imagine asking your kids random questions and an app that will videotape and make a mini movie about it. So many memories in this perfectly techie world. All you new moms out there, go download it.

2. Recipe of the week: Hibiscus/Rose Fusion Sticks $6

“Agua de Jamaica” just got super classy with these fusion sticks. Imagine how pretty these flavor sticks would be once dropped into water or mixed into beverages.

3.  “I Woke Up Like This” Tee $17

It was only a matter of time before someone printed a shirt with a Beyonce lyric. This one is awesome and so girly.

4. Mindy Kaling Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns)

LOVE this book. I’m almost done and highly recommend it. Fun to read and just confirms that we should be friends.

5. Song Pick: “O-o-h Child” by The Five Stairsteps

Kind of all over this song this week. When things get tough, this song somehow puts me at ease.

That’s it for me, have a great weekend!

friday’s fab five {8.8.14}

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? San Francisco is getting a little crazy here with Outside Lands, and I’m kind of interested to see how out-of-towners take the “summer weather” here. At 65 degrees, I’m going to say a lot of people haven’t dressed properly. Hopefully the music will warm them up a bit.

On to this week’s fab five:

1. Wine Cork Bulletin Board $175

wine-cork-bulletin-board

I saw an idea on pinterest a while back where you save wine corks and write what you were celebrating. I’ve been writing and saving mine in a vase in my bedroom. This cork board would make such a pretty display, whether you use it as a bulletin board or not.

2. Meditation Chair $329

I love this chair and although I can’t promise I’ll ONLY meditate in it, it’s so inviting for days when you just need to be alone with your thoughts.

3. Recipe of the week: Yogurt Breakfast Popsicles (via The Kitchn)

yogurt-breakfast-popsicles

These look so yummy and perfect for hot summers. Granola, yogurt and fruit. Done and done.

4. Open Heart Ring $29

I’m really liking delicate and simple jewelry these days. This open heart ring is so pretty and beautiful.

5. Pump Up the Jam

I can’t get over how funny this video is. I need to start incorporating some of these moves into my dance routine.

That’s it for me, have a great weekend!
