Five On Friday: Recent Favorites

Time for another Five On Friday! We hope you will join along with us. Here are some of my recent favorites.

I received a sample of Benefit's Watt's Up face highlighter from Sephora for my little birthday treat (if you aren't signed up as a Beauty Insider, it's free and you get great perks, like a birthday surcee.) Last night we had dinner with friends and went to go see Lone Survivor (oh my word -- GO). I used this highlighter on the inner part of my cheeks, the area in between my nose and cheekbone, and I loved the golden highlight it gave. Fair warning: a stick is $30 (here), so it's likely not the least expensive item in your bag, but I can assure you that just a little bit goes a long way so will last long. I'm sold!

I mean ... these need no real explanation. I picked up a package of Banana Split Oreos on a whim Monday, and I just can't describe how good they are. Definitely worth the splurge. I had two this morning after my bowl of cereal. That's how addictive they are.

On my birthday, I treated myself to a fun new dress. The Lilly Pulitzer Adabelle dress is a loose-knit crochet dress, and I just love the color! It has quite a bit of stretch to it, so I can wear it now as well as later.

I was so excited to find this recipe for a Kale and Blood Orange Salad! Not a lot of ingredients -- simple preparation -- loaded with color and nutrients -- I'm all over this. Hopefully it will make it on this coming week's menu.

Thrilled does not even come close to describing how I feel about the start of a great weekend. Ian and I are Charleston bound for a fun little weekend trip! We have lots of adventures ahead and of course I'll be sharing on Instagram. :) Can't wait to be headed down South shortly.

Charleston - there's a cool restaurant missing off this map, but other'n that...

Now, your turn to link up! I hope you will join me and my wonderful co-hostesses -- DarciNatasha, and Christina. Playing along is simple!  Just write a post about five things on your mind today, anything goes really, post the logo below on your blog, and then enter your post address below in the link-up section. It's a great way of meeting new friends and getting more eyes on your cute blog :)

  9. Jay brought a boot-leg copy of Lone Survior home and I was sooo shocked at all the violence (I guess that's what happens when you become accustomed to watching Sophia the First). He loved it though! So jealous y'all are going to Charleston! We had the best time on our babymoon before the twins were born!

  10. aww jealous! Have so much fun- I love Charleston! Hubby and I are going as well but not until May! (Love the new Lilly btw and I swear by 3 Benefit products- pore-fessional primer, erase paste for under eyes and the hello-flawless powder!) I could be a spokesperson for benefit! haha

  21. I bought that same highlighter a few weeks ago (LOVE Benefit)! But I haven't used it that much - I feel like I don't know where/the right way to apply it or what order to apply it when I also use BB cream and bronzer. Any tips??!

  28. Not gonna lie, I'm pretty jealous about your trip to Charleston. My hubby has a business trip there at the end of the month that I so wanted to tag along on, but it's just not going to work out this time. :( I'll live vicariously through you. :)

  30. Hubby & I are taking our first trip as a couple to Charleston in May...I'd love some recommendations for shopping/activities/dining!

    I also received that same sample of Benefit...and I LOVE IT!

  31. I will have to track down some of those Oreos- who doesn't love banana splits?!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Charleston is one of my all time favorite destinations...so jealous you are going. Have fun! Umm...love the dress, gorgeous. I have never seen those Oreos. I have a feeling if I were to see them in the store I'd likely not try, but now I'm curious since you speak so highly of them. :) After all, who can pass up a cookie. Have a great trip!
