WOAH, Friday already? This week went by so fast – in spite of how much I was dreading it! With 2 best friends in the Bahamas (and unavailable on g-chat), Tim playing hockey 4 nights in a row, and my favorite co-worker’s last day, I was sure I’d be counting down the minutes to the weekend. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised when I woke up this morning and realized the date.
Happy weekend pals! Anyone got any grand plans? We’re up in the air for tonight, but I’m sure we’ll grab dinner somewhere. I’m craving pizza – so much so, that I may make Tim eat it two nights in a row… Thanks in advance babe ; )
Linking up all over the dang place today with the wonderful Amanda (Friday Faves) – the hilarious Karli (oh hey, Friday!) and going back in time somewhat to join Jana and Maegen for The Creative Closet! This week’s prompt was Arm Candy, so I’m sharing my top 5 favorite accessories with ya’ll today – careful, you might get tempted to start shopping!
First – and absolutely most importantly – is my favorite piece of jewelry I have ever owned. You may consider this a bold statement, but I have never loved any item as much as I love my Michael Kors watch. I honestly feel like the watch arrived at a turning point – I began to feel (perhaps not act…) like more of an adult right around the time I started wearing a watch. I also really couldn’t handle arm accessories at all prior to the watch (something about typing/writing) so without my MK, the rest of this list probably wouldn’t exist! #DRAMATIC but true ; )
Next up are the two items I wear, without fail, every single day. My Lokai bracelet and my FitBit. The Lokai is awesome – incredibly “soft” and doesn’t slide around on my wrist at all. Plus, it carries a powerful message: “Sometimes you’re on the bottom – Stay hopeful. Sometimes you’re on the top: Stay humble.”
I’ve rambled on and on about the amazingness of my FitBit but today is a little different – today I’m discussing my ALTERNATE BANDS! I found a 3-pack in Target for $30, almost couldn’t justify it (was looking for a single addition) but bought them anyway and I am SO glad I did. I don’t know if I’ll feel the same about the colors in the winter months but idc – they’re adorable. Check your local Target – they had other 3-packs with different colors to choose from as well!
Classic. Sophisticated. Cheap. You don’t usually hear those adjectives together, but my inexpensive ($3!) gold chain bracelet from Forever 21 fits the bill. I wear it constantly – and it hasn’t gotten stretched out or tarnished at all. I like to call that a #shoppingwin.
And finally, my Alex & Ani anchor charm bracelet. I don’t often wear dangling jewelry (bracelets or earrings) but for this, I make an exception. I have it on consistently all year round – I love how it reminds me of Avalon, and I love that it’s a darker shade of gold. What charms do you guys have? I think I may treat myself to a new one this year : )
Only a few more hours left til the weekend officially begins – for me at least! I hope you’re all enjoying the day already, or you’ve got awesome plans for the next few. Cheers!
