Friday

Five On Friday, Helloooooo Weekend!

The most glorious day of the workweek, Friday! I'm really excited about my Five On Friday today, so let's jump right into it.

Okayyy, have you heard of Uber? Calling cabs is so old school. With this app that my girlfriend introduced me to, you can request (in certain cities, Charlotte being one of them) a cab or a black Towncar right from your phone. Now, I know that seems pretty basic, but here's why else I think this app is going to change the world:
  • You can get an exact estimate of how long it will take the cab or black car to reach your destination
  • You can get an estimate of the ride fare
  • You pre-load your payment info, so when the ride comes, you just hop in and hop out -- even tip is already included in the estimated cost. No payment = SAFETY in my book.
  • You can read the ratings and see the license plate number of the car and driver that is coming to get you
  • You can track the car's GPS location as they make their way to you and as you head to your destination right there on the app
  • They have an awesome referral program so that you can earn rides! You can enter code "y93yx" to earn three free rides from me. Seriously!
So, I recommend that you pause your reading now and start downloading this free app. Let me know what you think of it!

Huge, huge shout-out to my fellow hostess Natasha of Hello Happiness on her amazing news yesterday, the opening of her online children's boutique, Sugar Bit! Natasha, I feel this is truly your calling and I am thrilled for you that you are living your dream!

Sugar Bit

So this is totally on my wishlist.
I mean, my baby's wishlist.
Although one in my size? I wouldn't hate it!

Get ready for a review and giveaway coming next week from a really cute online maternity wear store. I love, love, love my new charcoal top and can't wait to share more details!

Lastly, just a big thank you for all of you who have left such awesome comments on the blog recently. I try to keep it real on the ol' blog, mainly because I personally don't like reading fluff, but also, with this being my journal of sorts, I like to record the "real stuff." So for all of you who have reached out to me via email or comment, just know that it truly makes my day.

Time to link up, hope you will join us today!

  18. Looking good and you are almost there! I don't think the Uber app would come in handy too much in plain ole Huntsville, Alabama but I will keep it in mind when I travel! :)

  19. Ah, you are so beautiful! I've heard a lot about uber but haven't ever known *exactly* what it offered. Thanks for the update :) And I love that romper!!

  20. love that quote!!! it's beautiful.
    a lot of people in chicago use uber but i have heard some horror stories about cab drivers increasing the fares during peak hours. i think i'd defiantly use it in a city where it's difficult to find a cab tho. have a great weekend! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  21. I love that you and all of your hostesses were decked out in pink. Too freaking cute!

    AND, I'm so obsessed with Uber. It's literally a life changing App.

    Did you know Ashton Kutcher is on the investors board for both Uber and AirBNB?

  22. My boss is ALL ABOUT Uber! haha I have yet to try it but it seems like a way better gig than grabbing a taxi! Especially where I work in San Francisco!

  23. Your so cute.. Ya Uber is awesome.. There is UberX too where it's cheaper because it's people's cars instead of the town cars or SVU's.

    In other cities there's also Lyft, Sidecar, and of course Uber..

    I prefer Lyft.. See if it's in your city!
