Five on Friday: Five Things I'm Loving

Hello Friday (evening) Blog Friends!  Due to a crazy day I'm just now getting this post up at almost 10pm, however it's still technically Friday so I'm okay!  I have a good excuse though for my tardiness - an important work meeting, training a new employee and then a surprise wedding this afternoon for my step-brother!  That's right, around noon I was told that my step-brother was getting married later that day at 4pm.  I ran out of work at 3:30, picked up Jack and headed to their house just in time for the nuptials, phew!

Now I want to share five things that I've been loving lately with you:

ONE - Bobeau Swiss Dot Split Neck Dress

In the summer when it is so unbearably hot, I tend to live in easy dresses that you can just throw on and go!  You can dress them up with jewelry and heels or dress down with flip flops.  This dress is so comfy, cute and most importantly, light and airy!  I have it in black, but I love it so much I considering buying the other one in blue. 

TWO - Anything Orange!

I'm also in love with anything orange these days...and so is my mother as evidenced by our twinsie picture!  We looked so cool shopping together in dark skinny jeans, orange tops, Kendra earrings and nude wedges.  Dorks!


I really want these orange Kendra Scott earrings or maybe the Rayne Necklace in Orange.  Tomorrow is the last day for my 50% offer for my birthday month...I've already told Jason Kendra is a must-visit tomorrow!

THREE - Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Gloss

This  is the best lip color/gloss I've tried in a long time.  I first heard about them from Kristina of Pretty Shiny Sparkly.  I gave one a try since they are only $6.99 and now I have three shades: Captivating Carnation, Celestial Coral and Caramel Infused.  These are awesome!  Great color and shine that actually lasts longer than most lip gloss I've used.  I also LOVE the applicator on the wand. 

FOUR - Shakeology

On Monday I'm starting Beachbody's 21 Day Fix which is a diet and workout plan.  Part of the plan includes Shakeology which I went ahead and started earlier this week when my order was delivered.  I've been drinking my shakes as a meal replacement for breakfast and it is so yummy and filling!  My coach recommended mixing my chocolate flavor I received wtih almond milk, PB2, ice and ground cinnamon.  This has been making my rushed morning before work and little more pleasant!

FIVE - New Summer "Beach" Reads

Around this time of year all of my favorite chick lit authors release their new books.  I just finished the latest Jane Green, Tempting Fate and can't wait to read these new books!  I'm currently reading The Antelope in the Living Room by blogger turned author Melanie good!

Emily Giffin - The One and Only {Out now}
Jennifer Weiner - All Fall Down {Releases June 17}
Chevy Stevens - That Night {Releases June 17)
Judy Greer - I Don't Know What You Know Me From {Out now}

  1. I just picked up The One and Only! I'm so excited to read it especially knowing I've loved everything Emily Giffin has written and I'm sure I'll feel the same with the one!

  2. Let me know how 21 Day Fix is. We started T25 today - must get back into shape! I'm dying for one of those Kendra pendant necklaces. I can't decide on the color though. What did you end up getting?

  3. That shake sounds delicious!! Obviously I can't diet now, but that may be in my future!

    Hope y'all had a great weekend!

  4. I love that dress and lip color! I also can't wait to follow your progress on the 21 Day Fix. Love exploring your blog, and hope you will link up with us tomorrow for Mid Week Muse!! xo
