Five on Friday {March 21, 2014}

Hey Gals!  Happy Friday and welcome to our favorite link up of the week - Five on Friday, courtesy of Gals Darci, Natasha, April, and Christina Hope everyone had a great week and a fab weekend ahead!  Here are my 5 faves of the week:


1. B’s Birthday Party!


I am so excited for this weekend because the B birthday celebration continues with a fabulous party out in NYC on Saturday night!  Not only am I thrilled for a Mommy’s night out, but I can’t wait to have a Gals night together with B (and a bunch of her nearest and dearest!)  


2. Spring is here


Is anyone else as excited for Spring as I am?!  This polar vortex filled winter has been absolutely brutal and it’s making me long for tank tops, margaritas on the patio and dinners al fresco!  Hopefully mother nature got the memo that Winter is officially over and the weather starts improving because we can’t wait to post lots of fun Springtime cocktail recipes!


3. I have a 6 month old!




You know I can never resist posting a pic of my little buster, but this week I have good reason because he’s now a ½ year old!  Every day he gets a little bigger and seems to master a new skill and I’m constantly in awe of how much love I feel for this little guy.  Now that he’s hit the 6 month mark, I made a collage of his first 6 monthly pictures and it’s so cool to see how much he’s grown and changed!  I’m so happy I decided to do these monthly pictures since it’s such a great keepsake to have!


4. Sequiney Shoes




Clearly we love a sequin here at TSN, so I just couldn’t resist these fabulous sequiney pumps that were recently on clearance at J.Crew (though I did frantically text B for approval just to make sure I wasn’t being crazy.. turns out the only crazy thing would have been passing up on this sequiney deal!)  Since receiving them, I’ve been longing to break these in and B’s birthday party provides me the perfect opportunity!  Plus, the chunky heel ensures I’ll be able to dance the night away and still be relatively comfortable.


5. Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Mascara




I’m a huge fan of Bobbi Brown cosmetics (I won’t leave home without a swipe or two of her shimmer brick on my face!) and was excited to hear about a new mascara she recently launched.  100% of the proceeds go to her Pretty Powerful Campaign - a foundation started in 2013 by Bobbi Brown to fund non-profit organizations around the world that provide women and girls with the education and resources to be their best.  And as if that wasn’t reason enough to purchase, the product itself is fabulous!  It’s super pigmented and makes my thin lashes look thick and lush.

  8. This isn't fair! You're going into spring! I'm in Autumn which means Winter is just around the corner :( . Thanks for coming over to my blog B, I thought I would return the favour and come visit yours - I think I've found a new blog to follow.
