Friday Five

I'm a little bit late getting this week's Friday Five up here (was distracted by #1 on the list). But better late than never!!!

1. Sochi Winter Olympics
I'm excited the Winter Olympics are here! While the Summer Olympics will always be my favorite, I still enjoy the Winter Olympics, especially the Figure Skating! (Image via)

2. Living Room Chalkboard from Target
I found this fun chalkboard at Target that I put up in the living room in my new apartment. My roomie and I both love Lilly so we sometimes refer to our place as "the Pink Palace" in honor of Lilly's headquarters.

3. Inspirational Quote
One of my friends posted this on Instagram the other day. I told her I would have to steal it for my blog!

4. Lilly Pulitzer Callahan Shorts in I Herd You
I bought a second pair of Lilly shorts during my trip to my favorite Lilly store recently. The zebras are adorable. Now I'm ready for it to be spring so I can wear them!

5. Psalm 84:11
"No good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless."
God has really put this verse on my mind and heart lately and I cling to it whenever I'm having a rough day or struggling with unfulfilled dreams.

Have a great weekend!

Saturday Six

Hey y'all! I'm back! And since I missed Friday Five, I'm going to do a Saturday Six, since it's been awhile since I've shared some of my favorite things. January was one of the craziest months of my life- between moving, going out of town for a friend's wedding, and continuing to settle into a routine at my new job. Everything is great though- it's all a good kind of crazy! I can't believe it's already February. Here are some things I am loving this week!

1. Kate Spade Striped Duvet Cover
I was really excited to find this striped Kate Spade Duvet Cover at TJ Maxx. I was in need of new bedding for my queen bed at my new apartment. This is actually a twin duvet cover, but I got creative with using it for my queen bed. Another blog post with more details on that will be coming soon!

2. Kate Spade "Things We Love" Coffee Table Book
I had been wanting this Kate Spade coffee table book for awhile, and just recently got it! It is absolutely gorgeous and is full of fun pictures and quotes.

3. Stella & Dot Signature Hoops
I didn't have a good pair of big hoop earrings, so I took advantage and ordered these Signature Hoops in bronze when I had a Stella & Dot gift card. They are so classic and go with everything! 

4. Burt's Bee's Lip Shimmer
I have recently discovered Bert's Bee's Lip Shimmer (image via) and it is one of my new favorite beauty products. I like it because it gives my lips rich vibrant color the way the lipstick does, yet I feel like I'm medicating my lips at the same time. I really like the "Raisin" shade and I also like the "Strawberry" shade.

5. Lilly Pulitzer Callahan Shorts in "Loopy"
I recently visited Greenville, SC and The Pink Bee (one of my all-time favorite Lilly stores) was having a big sale, so I got the Callahan shorts in this adorable elephant print from the Resort 2013 collection. Now it just needs to be spring so I can wear them!

6. Psalm 37:4
Psalm 37:4 is one of my favorite Bible verses and it is one of my mentor's favorite verses too. She is constantly reminding me of it. I was super excited to find this wall hanging when I was unpacking stuff in my new apartment. I had forgotten I owned it.

Hope y'all are having a great weekend!
