Five on Friday {September 4, 2015}



Hey Gals! I'm back from my absolutely amazing Punta Cana vacation (and already wishing I was back on that beach). I'm so excited to share all of the details in an upcoming post, but here's a little sneak preview...


While I'm still dreaming of that beach, here are five other things I've been loving this week.

 
GIF keyboard

This handy little app has completely changed my texting game for the better! I was already hooked on the sassy messages that I was able to send through Bitmoji, but this GIF keyboard takes it to the next level. There is the perfect GIF for every occasion, and many feature some of our favorite celebrities. I have to thank T for introducing me to this wonderful app, and M for promptly downloading it and using it in our daily text chats! Give it a try - you won't be sorry! 


New iPhone lens

Before we left for Punta Cana, T surprised me with this special treat...the Ollo-Clip 4-in-1 lens that slips right onto my iPhone! It contains a fish-eye, wide-angle, and two different macro lenses. I'm still getting the hang of using it but you can count on seeing it in action in future posts. Has anyone else ever taken photographs with it before?


Sing It On

I seriously have no clue how I was living without Netflix up until June - it's chockfull of must-see-TV! My most recent obsession is Sing It On, a reality show that follows five different college a cappella groups on their quest for musical glory (sound familiar? If you're a fan of Pitch Perfect, then you'll love Sing It On). All of the behind-the-scenes drama is especially juicy to me since it brings me right back to my own college a cappella days. I was hooked right from the start but with only 8 half-hour episodes, this series is going to fly by quickly so I'm trying to dole out the episodes slowly to make it last longer. PLEASE tell me someone else is watching it...? (But no spoilers!)


SJP card collection

I ran to Hallmark during my lunch break to pick up a birthday card earlier this week and stopped dead in my tracks when I saw this shiny, girly, pink display in the middle of the store - who knew that Sarah Jessica Parker had her own card collection?! It's filled with glitz and glam and some sassy comments - perfect for your favorite girly girl! I want them all!

Football season kick-off

Y'all, I hope you didn't miss my last post but college football season is HERE. Make sure you check out all of my must-have party supplies, and try not to be too hard on me for throwing a "y'all" your way :)

I hope you have a fun and relaxing Labor Day! Even though it's still technically summer for a little bit longer, I'll be ready for some pumpkins and all things autumnal after Monday!


Cheers to AprilAmandaJennieKarliClare, Rebecca, Katie, HeatherAnnie, and Tif for hosting today's link-ups!
