Friday Five

Hey y’all – Happy Friday! Cheers to the freakin’ weekend, right? Man, it’s been chilly here in Charleston! It was so windy the other day, a triangular sign stand flew into my car door at the gas station and I had to squeeze my way out of the car. {Luckily no vehicle damage, but sheesh!}

This weekend is supposed to bring some low 70s temps here in the Lowcountry…I’m thinking Sunday is a definite beach day provided it still looks to be clear and sunny. It is March, OK? I mean, I am done with this winter shit.

Anywho…here are some fabulous finds for my Friday Five…enjoy!

One.

One of my fave style mavens, Emily Maynard, just launched a new lifestyle and fashion blog…can’t wait to read it on the daily! Just love that girl’s style and she is so dang cute. After all, she is the one that inspired my Minnetonka Moccassin Boots purchase!

Two.

This cute little clover charm…I think it would be perfect to sport on St. Patty’s Day, or even just “for luck”.

Barre classes. Yep, started going to them again. My gym now has them for FREE. {I know, right?!} I work at the gym now until 8am on the mornings I work, and then there are classes at 8:15am, so I stick around and take them. I went on Monday AND Wednesday this week and I FEEL THE BURN, y’all. And I workout very regularly…so when I say it was brutal, I mean it. I plan on going tomorrow morning too. Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays will be my new schedule with those classes for sure. I also still have a Living Social coupon for 4 classes at Barre Evolution, where I took my very first barre class last summer. Here’s to a toned bikini bod! I recommend you try.

Pure Barre! Gave up my gym rat memberships and going to PB full time!

Four.
I’m at no shortage for maxi dresses by any means {I live in them in the summertime}, but I am seriously considering purchasing this maxi dress for the beach…how super-easy it is to throw on and off…great for heading out to the beach bar for an afternoon cocktail right off the beach.
Five.
Lastly, I’ve been fixated on prepping my wardrobe for spring and summer fashion…looking to Pinterest for great ideas and seeing what I already have that I can use to recreate some of the looks…definitely think I need some sort of bulletin board in my closet to manually “pin” pictures of outfits too so I can look to it when getting dressed in the AM {lightbulb!} But here’s an outfit I found that I just L-O-V-E:
Shorts, stripes, heels, great spring outfit.

Definitely recreating that with my navy and white striped Gap tee and nude heels. Just need a great pair of nude shorts. And that Celine bag…actually, some might not like that I say this, but I read about so many style bloggers lovin’ on that bag right now, but I sorta think it looks like a Lego man face…nice bag, but it’s definitely staring at me.
Happy weekend, y’all! xoxo

Friday Five

Happy Friday, Darlings. Five things I love this week:

One. 

Found out @MinnetonkaMocc started following me on Twitter last month {can’t believe I just now noticed!} and they’ve retweeted me not once, but TWICE! At the risk of sounding like a total dork, I have to say it gave me the warm fuzzies.

They retweeted this post and this post. {Pssst…if you’re a Twitter user, my handle is @morgalicious483. Would love the follow. Let me know yours!}

Two.

Thanks to Ashley at Turquoise & Teale, I discovered this game available at Amazon:

How fun is that? I am soooo getting this game…my fellow Charlestonian friends will love it!

Three.

Tried on this sweater at Target and had to buy…I had been looking for a long layering sweater to wear with leggings. It’s shorter in the front than the back and a very light, breathable, weaved fabric. Super comfy.


Xhilaration® Juniors High Low Marl Sweater - Assorted Colors
$22.99 at Target

Four.

Picked up this nail color at my local CVS Pharmacy, It’s called Plastic Flamingo by Spoiled {Wet n’ Wild}. It’s the perfect bright pink for spring and summer…pretty much flourescent! And it’s only $1.99. Don’t get me wrong, I love the array of colors that Essie makes, but I truly cringe at the thought of spending $8.00 or so on one color of polish.

Five.

Getting back into Bikram Yoga classes so I can pull off stuff like this again…I had been letting my flexibility slip away and I just simply can’t keep letting that happen!

Have a great weekend. Weather is supposed to be 70 and not rainy on Sunday, so I can hopefully get the boys out to the beach! xoxo

Friday Five

Happy Friday, y’all!

Oh my I am hurting today. I’ve been at work since 5am {with a full weekend of work ahead} and I am exhausted. My friend, Chrissy, is getting married tomorrow, so last night I attended her  lingerie shower at a nice beach house on Isle of Palms. Even though I left at 8:30pm, I am super-tired today and my heavy lids keep trying to close as we speak. We’ll see how I do Saturday evening at her reception…ha!
I don’t have much for you this Friday unfortunately, as you can tell, it’s been a busy week of early to bed, early to rise. And if you read yesterday’s post, you know that Fit For Fashion Fridays is ending here and will resume on my fitness blog, i-Heart Fitness {under a different meme name}.
So I think for today, I’m going to give you my Friday Five…things I’m lovin’ lately:
1. Tundra
I adopted this beautiful girl on September 25th. If you follow me on Facebook, you may have already heard that she had a slew of medical issues when I took her to my vet – including heartworm. The other things were mostly minor and easily treated…but the heartworm treatment is going to be an expensive and long process. We started her on it this week…and I have to keep her activity very low for a few months, which means little to no walks with her…and she just loves her walks so she’s always howling at me to take her when I get home…it breaks my heart a little, but I don’t want to overexert her during this process. I am glad I found her and she is so sweet…I can’t wait for this stuff to be over with so she can enjoy her life more.
2. The Handbuilt Home

I picked up this book at Barnes and Noble the other day and I just love it. So many great plans…I’ve already pointed out to Handy Hubby some of the pieces I’d really like to make {he of course, as a carpenter, insists he didn’t need this book to tell him how to make something}…but anyway, it’s given me tons of ideas for my own home. It’s written by Ana White, author of the Ana White – Homemaker blog. I know most of you already check out her blog daily as she is AMAZING…but if you haven’t, you should because you surely won’t be disappointed.
3. Studded Wrist Wraps

Which brings me to my next love of late:
4. Arm Parties
via
5. Plaid Flannel Shirts
via
Actually wearing this one right now!
Have a great weekend! xoxo

Friday Fab Five

What a week! This marks my 12th day in a row of working…{darnit to working weekends!} So needless to say, I am R-E-A-D-Y for this 3-day weekend.

But, even with all of this working, I have found the time to lust over some wonderful things…here’s my Friday Five:

{1} ZGallerie’s Drake mirror that just recently hit stores…oooh so pretty, but sorta steep for my shallow pockets at $399.00. Boo. Buy it for me? I still love you, ZGallerie, and despite the price, I’m sure this beauty will fly off the shelves.

{2} This new printable I made for my bar area…{currently making a few options that can be personalized and adding them to my Etsy shop soon}:

{3} This cobalt-like nail color from Essie:

{4} This painting at Cocoa & Hearts:

{five} This iPhone Armband

…and just ordered this armband from eBay at $3.97 and free shipping! Should get it by next week – this will make my gym sessions and half marathon training runs {as well as the half marathon} much more enjoyable!

So at least I was able to get one thing off my list {with the exception of item #2 that I made myself!}

Happy Friday! xoxo
