Five on Friday: {August 27th, 2015}


Happy Friday Gals and happy last weekend of August! I can't believe that summer is almost over but luckily my weekend doesn't have any obligations whatsoever for pretty much the first time all summer, so I'm planning to take advantage of it and spend it out in the sun. To kick off the weekend, I'm sharing my five favorites of the week!


Cracked iPhone

An image I hope no one has to endure in real life!!
Ok, so this obviously is NOT a favorite moment that happened this week, BUT it does have a happy ending! On Monday I accidentally dropped my iPhone on tile floor (as I've done a million times before) but it just so happened to fall in just the right spot, causing the screen to shatter and completely mess up the LCD display.


Naturally I hauled it to the Apple store to see if it could be fixed and after an initial consultation from the genius bar, the outlook was hopeful with the diagnosis being that I needed a new screen, and to come back in an hour and it would be fixed. Well turns out I really did do a number on it, and it could not be fixed, and I needed a whole new phone. But because they had initially quoted me just cost of a screen repair, they honored that cost and all I was charged was $109 for a brand new iPhone 6.


How amazing is that?! And this is why I will be an Apple customer for life - you cannot beat that amazing customer service!!


New iPhone Case

And speaking of new phones.. after getting my new phone I promptly marched over to Nordstrom and picked up a new case because yeah... it was naked when I dropped and broke it #lessonlearned.  Luckily my gal Kate Spade makes such adorable cases that don't take away from the sleekness of the phone.


 Dinnerware Winner!

Last week I posted that I was on the hunt for new everyday dinnerware and I've finally decided on a winner! Thank you to everyone who gave feedback and as usual, you guys are the best and I totally agreed with the consensus that all white was the way to go! It's timeless and can mix and match with pretty much any and every style. I decided to go for this specific set from West Elm because I love how there is a mix of patterns and textures which keeps it a little interesting while still being totally classic.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Sale Haul

Clockwise from top: Scrangie 2.0, All About Yves, Oliveto, Gondoliere, Pretty Gritty
Another week, another nail polish haul - I know, I know.. I *may* have a problem. BUT when your favorite brand offers 50% off... you stock up! I've been a long time Rescue Beauty Lounge fan because not only do they make amazing colors, but the formula is always perfection. I can't wait to play with these babies this week - I'm thinking that bright blue needs to be the first mani I do!


Song of the Week


And lastly, I'll leave you with this song that has been on constant repeat all week for me. I mean is this not such a fun and catchy song?! Plus, Adam Levine...

Hope everyone enjoys this last weekend before Labor Day.  What's everyone up to?!

Cheers to April, AmandaJennieKarliClare, Rebecca, Katie, Heather, and Tif for hosting today's link-ups!

  1. Glad your iPhone story had a happy ending! I really feel like these were made to break easier than the previous ones. I've dropped my 5 a million times and it never broke and the other day I put my 6 on the counter and the screen cracked. In a case. WTF! At least Apple is awesome and stuck to the original price! Happy Friday!
