Happy Friday Gals! I know I say this every week, but this week has been dragging, and I am so excited to finally start this long weekend we have ahead! As always, I’m kicking things off with my five favorites of the week.
|crostini // kale // pasta // tart|
And while not everyone is a fan of Valentine’s Day, I think we can all get behind the concept GALentines Day!! I mean, pretty much every time B and I get together it’s Galentine’s Day, but I’m loving all of the ideas on this hilarious list. And when all else fails, pour yourself a cocktail, get together with your best gals, and don't forget to add in a Galentine's Day Conversation Heart Printable.
I mean, a love greater than nail polish should certainly be celebrated!
New Work Tote – Recommendations Needed!!
Starting next week, my job is being relocated about 40 miles north of where I live, and I’ve decided to start commuting via the bus instead of driving. While this is all around not ideal, the only silver lining is that I’m treating myself to a large new tote bag, since I can’t possible commute without one, right?! I *think* I’ve narrowed my choice down to either the Gigi Teddie Tote or the Cuyana Tote. I think I’m leaning slightly towards the Gigi, since it’s lined and has an inner zipper pouch, but I love the look of the Cuyana and prefer the Caramel color they offer, especially after seeing Meghan’s gorgeous post that featured it! I know many of you have one or the other, so people give me some opinions and let me know which one I should pull the trigger on!
Favorite cocktail of the week

Thanks to everyone who stopped by for our monthly cocktail link-up! I absolutely love all of the delicious recipes you guys posted and wanted to feature my very favorite from the link-up – Shelby’s Crown and Coke Float! I love me some Crown Royal, but add in coke and ice cream.. ummm yes!! Growing up, I used to love getting a float as a sweet treat, and really the only thing that could possibly make it better is a little alcohol, so well done with this one Shelby!
Favorite Guilty Pleasure of the Week
And lastly, I need to give a nod to my most favorite of guilty pleasures – the train wreck that is Vanderpump Rules! Who else is right there with me on this one?! While the focus of this episode may have been on Scheana’s wedding, I can’t get enough of the Kristen/Tom/Miami Girl drama. I’m still on the fence if anything actually went down in Miami, but one thing’s for certain, Kristen is 100% crazy and still totally obsessed with Tom! It almost makes me feel bad for little baby James, and Ariana should definitely watch her back if she ever finds herself alone in a dark alley! I read that they just filmed the reunion this week, so I’m hoping all of these rumors and accusations come to a head and we finally get some answers!
What are you all up to this weekend?
Cheers to Amanda, Jennie, Karli, Clare, Rebecca, Katie, Natasha, Heather, and Tif for hosting today's link-ups!
