Five On Friday! Earrings, Girls Night, Lunchboxes

It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join along!

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. :)

I posted on Instagram about these amaaaazing earrings that I bought and am just loving! Our family friend Misty has teamed up with a girlfriend to create lovely jewelry with a true MISSION behind it -- the abolishment of human trafficking. One third of all proceeds go to this mission.

The earrings are made with gold-filled hooks and the leather is such high quality. Best of all, they are completely lightweight -- you will forget you're even wearing them.

You can find them on Instagram and make purchases directly off of their Insta page which is so very easy. Cheers to ladies who are doing it RIGHT.

Gals, I found the neatest coffee foam topping yesterday at Homegoods for less than $5. It's sugar free and calorie free and it was a total impulse purchase! They had French Vanilla and Salted Caramel and I went with the latter.

This foam topping is LEGIT. You just add a few pumps to the top of your coffee and it's just like you've got a S'bux latte right in your own kitchen! Ian even tried it this morning and was amazed at this fun little product. I highly recommend hunting one down at your Homegoods or similar store! 

Tonight I'm going to the Emily Ley book signing at Swoozies! I'm so excited to have a great girly night. I think she does a great job at rounding up some of the keystones of organization that we already know -- and just seem to (inconveniently) forget. Reading her advice sometimes, I'm thinking -- that's obviously a great point, and why am I not practicing it already?

Yesterday on Instastories I talked a little bit about Camille's lunchbox. Sometimes I do an awesome job packing them and sometimes ... not. I had so many questions about the lunchbox we have -- it's Yumbox. You can find them on Amazon, and they are not the cheapest, but they are STURDY. And when you're asking a three year old to cart something around 3 times a week that may hold goopy contents (yogurt, applesauce, dipping sauces, et cetera), that's important! Plus, it's very easy for her to open and close herself.

Would you be interested in seeing more toddler lunchbox posts? Again, I'm not Pinterest mom when it comes to lunchbox packing, but I may have some ideas to pass along.

I'm so excited that some of you have taken advantage of the NEW CUSTOMER PROMO for Grove Collaborative! It ends Sunday.

Again, all you have to do is add $20 to your cart (of household and cleaning products you need anyway, like hand soap, laundry detergent, dish detergent, even baby wipes) and then you get the following for completely FREE:
  • Grove Collaborative Cleaning Concentrates (3 pack) 
  • Grove Collaborative Glass Spray Bottle 
  • Grove Collaborative Microfiber (2 pack) 
  • Grove Collaborative Cleaning Caddy
The glass spray bottle and the microfiber cloth would be my two favorites. You can see them in the photo below.

So, CLICK HERE to get started and check out my legit favorite way to stock up on delicious-smelling household cleaning products. Mobile readers can also click the photo below!


That's it for today! Hope you have a lovely weekend -- thanks for linking up with us below!


  1. I love Emily Ley! I downloaded a bunch of recent podcasts that feature her promoting her new book because she's just so motivating to listen to. Also, I'll take a dollop of that coffee foam, please! :) Happy Friday!

  2. I LOVE Emily Ley and totally blogged about that book today, too! I want to go to her signing in Dallas so badly. That book is so amazing. I would *love* to know more about toddler lunchbox ideas; I feel like Walker and Knox always get the same-old, same-old. And also! Thank you for doing an Instastory about those earrings earlier this week; can't wait to get mine in the mail! :)

  7. Ahh I'm so jealous you're going to see Emily Ley! I've been working hard toward some of her teachings and like you said, lots of general reminders of duh things we should be doing/mindsets we should keep anyways! Toddler lunch packing...something I used to think was fun and now, meh! Cute lunchboxes do help though! Happy weekend!
