Happy Friday!


Happy Friday ladies and gents!  I had to choose the above image for today’s post because one of the things I am most excited about from this week is that I got a bicycle for Mother’s Day!  I have been wanting one for a long time and I cant wait to ride it this weekend!  

Today I am linking up with AprilAmanda and Della for Friday Faves.  Here they are:


1.  Schwinn Carrington Bike.  Isn’t she a beaut?  I just ordered the cutest basket for the handlebars, too.  Yay!

Jennifer Lancaster

2.  I Regret Nothing by Jennifer Lancaster.  Its no secret that I have not loved Jennifer Lancaster’s last few books but this one is getting great reviews and I am hoping it is as good as Bright Lights Big Ass or Pretty in Plaid.  I am pretty excited to start it this weekend.

3.  Lupita Nyong’o.  Her green Gucci dress KILLED the red carpet in Cannes.  I want this dress so bad!  I also have to give props to her makeup team because I am obsessed with the way her hair and pink lipstick go so well with her outfit.  


4.  Hudson Krista Jeans.  I know these are a bit pricey but I refuse to be jean-shamed about them.  I was having a major fat day and I tried these on in Bloomingdales and they made my butt look fantastic.  They could have costed $2455676434 and I still would have bought them because that feeling is priceless.  (I probably would have had to return them when I regained control of myself later though.)    


5.  Secrets of a No-Guilt Mom.  My blogger friend, Elle, put together a hilarious list for Buzzfeed this week and I had to share.  I am so proud of her and she cracks me up!  Check it out here.

Alright loves, I hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by my little slice of the internet!  xo

    Your new bike is too cute, love that! I read that Buzzfeed article the other day, I told my friend that I don’t even have a kid yet but I know exactly what kind of mom I’m going to be and I’m totally ok with that 😉 I said “YUP!” to every single one of those haha. Happy weekend!

    Love that bike–it’s so cute!! I adore Lupita…she’s effortlessly beautiful and just seems so down to Earth.
    I’m on my way to check out that Buzzfeed article now! Happy weekend!!

    LOVE that list your friend put together! I am definitely going to put that on my next reading list! Congrats on your bike!! Have soooo much fun with it this weekend!

    Love Lupita’s dress too!! Normally I’m not a big fan of that color, but that dress is gorgeous. We sell Hudson jeans where I work including the Krista’s. Check out the Hudson Nico’s too. They are a mid-rise skinny jean. Love that gif of Claire Dumphy too, Modern Family is great, and that bike is adorable!!

    Have a great weekend!!! 🙂

    I love those jeans! I agree, I would much rather pay more for 1 pair of jeans that make me look and feel great than 10 pairs that do nothing!

    Ahhhh I loved Bright Lights Big Ass!!! I feel like it has been forever since I read it. I need to check that book out! Also, sometimes you just need a good pair of jeans. You can’t put a price tag on a hot ass. 🙂 Hope you have a fabulous weekend!!!!!!!!!

    i am of the firm belief that you should spend whatever you want on jeans – i have $200 and $30 jeans that i love equally. the $200 jeans are like 5 years old and still going strong (although my butt is threatening to break them, so i had to stop wearing them till i get rid of some of this booty) and the $30 ones aren’t even a year old and still going strong as well. we wear jeans so much, no-one should be jean shamed!
    that buzzfeed article is the best. your friend is hilarious! and that bike is absolutely adorable. i want a bike with a cute basket! make sure you post pictures 😉
    have a great weekend doll!

    Ahh that bike is too cute! LOVE it! And yes to spending whatever you want on jeans as long as you feel good in them. I feel like jeans are one of the hardest things for women to shop for so if you find a pair you love, get em!

    I love that bike!! The color is so cute! I have a Felt bike in a very similar style and it’s so comfortable to ride. I bet you’ll love this!

    That bike is sweet, Lupita’s dress is made of ballerina dreams I’m convinced and no jean shaming over here! Would it be ridiculous to say that 99% of my jeans are designer? In my defense, they last forever and seriously are the best quality you can ask for!
