Five On Friday

It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join me! As a reminder, my lovely cohostesses DarciChristina, and Natasha are on summer break from the link-up, but they will be returning!

Remember, all you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add our logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools below. Easy, and a great way to find new blogs and be found. :)

Mothers Day is this Sunday -- my first Mothers Day ever! I am really, really excited for this day and all it means. And of course, I am excited to spoil a few special mothers in our lives. I decided to try out a new service that I first saw on Shark Tank (I loooove this show), The Bouqs. Mom, sorry for the spoiler alert here. :) I will definitely share more about my experience with using them -- in the past I have always used Proflowers or 1-800-Flowers. After seeing their story on Shark Tank, I just fell in love with the concept behind The Bouqs and was wooed by the one price deal. No hidden fees, taxes, or delivery fees. SOLD. I also love that I was able to make my purchase by going through Ebates first and earning back 7.5%!

A girlfriend of mine had House Beautiful sitting on her kitchen island the other day, and I was immediately drawn to this sunny kitchen. It is SO fun, but am I brave enough to pull it off myself? Probably not. I just think it's so cheery though, and I would love to start off my mornings with a bowl of berries at that white table.

Did you see the new lifestyle and shopping site owned by Reese Witherspoon? Draper James is such a cute site and I can't wait to see how her line grows and expands.


For all of you who are buying and selling with Fickle here in Charlotte, we offer concierge services for those of you who don't have enough time to list your item or meet up with buyers. It has been a fun little way to help out our sellers.

If you are here in Charlotte and would like a 30-day free trial of Fickle, email and give her invitation code AR101. I bought the cutest Burberry beach sarong the other day that I can't wait to wear in Mexico!

Thank goodness for beautiful weather and fun weekend plans. This has been a bit of a stressful week work-wise, but I am certainly ready to unwind with my little family. Plus, I have a lunch date with girlfriends today, and that is always an instant mood-boost.

I hope all of you have a beautiful weekend! I will be kicking back this evening on the patio with Ian, Camille, and a glass of one of my favorite sauv blancs ... Monkey Bay. Inexpensive and tasty!

TGIF y'all, and hope you will join in on Five on Friday this week! Cheers to the weekend!
