Friday Five

Happy Friday! Hope y'all have stayed warm this week. These FRIGID temperatures have reminded me that I could never live someplace where this type of winter weather is the norm rather than the exception. I'm your stereotypical thin-blooded Souther wimp. Ha! I'm linking up with A. Liz Adventures and company again for Five on Friday.
1. Kate Spade Lemon Print Scarf

I became obsessed with this Kate Spade lemon print when it came out last spring. Last week I found this beautiful scarf at my TJ Maxx for nearly 70% off suggested retail! The pretty lemon print caught my eye, and when I took the scarf off the rack I realized it was THE Kate Spade lemon print. The yellow tassels add a lovely touch and I absolutely couldn't pass this beauty up.  I was able to buy the lemon pendant necklace on sale last summer, and was super excited to add the scarf to my collection too!

2. Valentine's Goodie Overload

One of my closest friends has a Valentine's Day birthday, so another friend and I threw her a little party last weekend. Our night included a smorgasbord of Valentine's sweets: conversation hearts, m&m pretzels, Red Velvet Oreos, red jelly beans, Dove hearts, cupcakes, and more!

3. Kate Spade Outlet Sale
I have decided to give up shopping for Lent, but last weekend I had a last hurrah at the Kate Spade outlet on my way home from a weekend trip to visit friends. They were having a HUGE sale: 50% off everything in the store, plus an additional 20% of clearance. I snagged these two beauties- the blue Wellesley Byrd was in the clearance section! It will be great for going out and for weddings and parties. The hot pink is nylon. I like having nylon handbags in my collection because I don't like to carry leather bags when it's raining. I like this Kate Spade nylon tote better than my Longchamp Le Pliage totes because it has an interior zipper pocket plus two interior open pockets, making it easier to organize my stuff. 

4. Starbucks Muffin for 27 cents
I forgot to take a picture before I ate half of it, but I was happy to get a Starbucks blueberry yogurt muffin for just 27 cents last week. I had a $2 off any food item offer on my Gold card, so that's how I got a practically free muffin. It also didn't hurt that I got a star to go towards my Lucky Dozen rewards with this purchase! Sometimes it's just the simple things in life that make my day!

5. Sweet Sayings m&m's
I was really happy to get these pretty pink and green m&m's with cutesy sayings on them from my mom for Valentine's Day. Once again, it's the little things!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  2. I keep seeing people talk about the red velvet oreos, but I've yet to find them myself. They sound delicious though, and hopefully I can get my hands on them while they're still out!
