Happy Friday Gals! It has been a WEEK for this gal, so I will be counting down the hours until the work day is done and I can put on my sweatpants, enjoy some pizza and wine and catchup on lots of trashy reality tv! To kick things off, as usual we're sharing our 5 favorites of the week - I hope everyone is having a fab Friday with even more fab plans for the weekend ahead!!
Ok, this first one certainly isn't a favorite, but just my new way of life. My company decided to consolidate some of it's offices, which means I'm now commuting 40 miles north of my house to the majestic Jersey City, NJ... So it's been a bit of an adjustment having to now triple (yes triple!) my commuting time, along with now taking public transportation. BUT.. I am trying to stay positive and look for the small upsides of this change, like being able to now have the time to read again, along with lots of time to read all of my favorite blogs! So I will be promptly checking all of your book recommendations and downloading lots and lots of books to my iphone - recommendations definitely welcome!!
Rent the Runway Unlimited
RTR has done it again, and this time, they've truly outdone themselves! I raved about my love of RTR Unlimited back when I first signed up, and we are also long time fans of their dress rentals, so imagine my excitement when I got the email notifying me that they've basically combined the two into the best of both worlds! Unlimited subscribers are now able to select dresses in addition to accessories for a monthly fee! You can read all about the specifics here, but I couldn't be more excited about this and have already added about 15 gorgeous dresses to my queue!
Sale Picks of the Week
And for those moments when a rental just won't do, I've been lusting over way to many shopping deals this week!
I'm loving this duvet cover from West Elm - it's so bright and cheerful, and a steal at $34.99
This necklace from Kate Spade - still a little steep in price, but so, so gorgeous!
I have been obsessing over these boots ever since seeing them on Kristen and Pamela, so once I realized they were at 50%, I was basically powerless and had to order them.. they arrived this week and I love, love, love them!
Favorite Song of the Week
Shut Up and Dance with Me - Walk the Moon
How fun is this song?! It kind of reminds me of an 80's pop/dance song, and I've basically had it on constant repeat all week long.
Gals in Manals
While my Friday night plans may not be very exciting (though I am VERY excited for them), Saturday is a whole other story because the Gals are going to be reunited!! The name of the town I live in is Manalapan, so we affectionately like to call it the Gals in Manals whenever B comes over (which explains my title for this one). She's going to be in Jersey during the day, so I am so, so excited that she'll be coming over at night, along with T, for some dinner, drinks and lots and lots of gal'ing. Hopefully GG and T realize what they're in for, though truth be told, those two are total gals at heart, and I know they'll be cackling along with us (after a glass of wine or two!).
And lastly, as a little bonus item, don't forget to enter our Pearlties giveaway!
You gotta be in it to win it!!
What are you all up to this weekend?!
