High Five (and a little bonus)

As usual, today I'm linking up with Lauren to share 5 of my favorite things from this week with y'all. Let's get to it!

one. I did a lot of relaxing this week. Sunshine Therapy Day was most definitely a success. After a lot of thinking and talking to my loved ones, I feel a heck of a lot better about what's going on in my life. Also, I'm thinking about writing a letter to the president suggesting that he make Sunshine Therapy Day a real holiday. Yeah?

two. I tried one of Kate's hair tutorials this week, and it was a success! Usually when I curl my hair it looks semi-frizzy. But the tips that Kate offered were really helpful. Yay for broadening my hair horizons.

three. Delicious dinner, cute dress, bottle of wine & my bestie = enough said.

four. Adam made me (yeah he carved that thing by hand!) a key to his heart necklace. Seriously almost died when he gave it to me. Died in a good way I mean...I sure do love him a whole lot :)

five. Wednesday was my last day interning at MMD Events...quickest 8 weeks ever! I learned a ton, and I'm really grateful for my experience. I'm not really sure where I'm going from here, but I'll keep y'all posted. My boss bought a box of Gigi's cupcakes to celebrate...they tasted even better than they looked. Hard to believe, but I promise!

And a little bonus...

six. I finally ordered a remote for my new camera so that I don't have to take outfit pictures like this anymore! Get excited, because I sure am.

Enjoy your weekend, sweets!

P.S. I'm participating in a pretty sweet giveaway (think LOTS of gift cards) that you should enter.



  1. Sounds like a great week! Those cupcakes look so yummy!

  2. ahhh...the cupcakes look amazing. The key necklace and heart are so amazing. You definitely have an enviable relationship!
    Have a great weekend!


  3. Love a little week wrap-up :) YUM on the cupcakes--love Gigi's! That heart necklace is TOO precious...that boy is definitely a keeper. Love all of your outfits, as usual. You're just too cute, my friend :) Hope your weekend is fabulous!

  4. i need a girls night out that doesn't involve drinking too much, dancing too much, getting greasy late night food, and having a hangover the next day :P getting dressed up and having GOOD food and wine sounds so much better!! dress looks cute!


  5. Love ALL of this!! That necklace is the cutest thing ever! You are a lucky lady (as I'm sure you know!)

    Jess I have been loving all your outfits lately!!! I can't wait to see you step up the outfit-picture-taking game!! I'm getting my first DSLR soon and want to get a remote too. Where did you get yours?

  6. Love the last two outfits and that necklace is SO sweet!

  7. I can't believe your internship is over! It seriously feel like just yesterday you were telling us you got it! :)

  9. I love the shoes you wore with that blue dress!


  10. i love everything in this post.

    Especially that pic of you in #2. You look amazing. LOVE the hair.

    & Gigi's cupcakes, of course. My bday was this week and my husband brought a bought of Gigi's home. They are my favorite :)

  11. I have those same earrings that you're wearing in picture 2! Is it weird I get excited about earrings?

    Also, all of your posting about food and wine really makes me want to be friends with you IRL. Is that creepy? I feel like maybe that sounded a little creepy. Hah!

  12. Jealous, jealous of your sunshine therapy day! And I love Kate's hair tutorials....she makes things seem so much easier!

  13. I'd want a Sunshine Therapy Day at least once a week. Is that too much? I don't think so. Also, I kind of hate you for posting a pic of those cupcakes. I want them all so so SO badly!.

    carelessly graceful

  14. Your hair looks good! The perks of it getting longer, I see.

    Dinner with a bff is a must! And the food looks delish!

  15. Girl, Adam is such a keeper!! What a sweet man. I love wine and dinner nights with besties, those are the best nights. Have a great weekend!

  16. That little heart Adam made you is seriously precious :) Hold on to that one (the necklace and the boy) tight!

  17. That necklace is so sweet!!! And that's awesome you got a timer for your camera. I need to look into that!

  18. You always have the cutest outfits!! And sunbathing in January?? crazy!

  19. love the necklace he made you! so sweet!

  20. What a nice surprise that necklace must have been! Sounds like he's a keeper! And I'm jealous that you got a designated relaxing by the beach day. Sounds like heaven!
