Five on Friday: {October 23, 2015}

Happy Friday Gals! I've been slowly trying to kick my jet lag after my whirlwind trip to LA, and even though it was an amazing trip, I'm definitely glad to be back home!  I'm excited to have a pretty low key weekend ahead, and to kick things off, I'm sharing my 5 faves of the week:

LA Trip!
I'm planning to do a proper recap of my LA trip (including a whole Wheel recap), but I can't resist posting a couple of pics from this amazing (and quick!) trip:

Dinner at SUR!

 And then seeing a picture of Lisa Vanderpump made completely out of jelly beans...

Authentic LA tacos

And sunsets in Venice Beach

And more sunsets because they were that beautiful

New Emojis!

If you follow us on Instagram, then you know that we were all too excited to update to ios9 and get all of the new emojis. Now that we can properly express our love of tacos and champagne our life is pretty much complete... though after having some tacos and margaritas last night, I realized, where is the margarita emoji?!

Favorite Song

I'm officially on the T Swift Bandwagon (Squadwagon?!).. I've always been a fan, but her latest hit Wildest Dream has been playing nonstop on my iTunes - I just can't get enough!

New Planner Help

So I'm officially in the market for my next planner and need help! I need any and all recommendations since there seem to be so many amazing ones out there. For 2015 I've been using a Plum Planner, but it isn't really the best fit for me. The layout is vertical, and I definitely feel limited in that format. Additionally, it's a little bulky for my liking, though it's definitely not a deal breaker since I use a pretty large tote. I've looked into the very popular Erin Condren, as well as, the Emily Ley, Day Planner, and May Book Planner (p.s. - what's with all of these planners rhyming?! Ley, Day May!??!) . So what planner do you all recommend?! I'm ready to buy my next one!

Not Little M, but I can guarantee he'll be just as cute in this costume!
To say I'm excited about Halloween is an understatement! I've always been a huge fan, but now that Little M is big enough to (almost) understand the holiday, it totally takes it to the next level. He's learned the phrase "Trick or Treat" and is super excited to dress up as a brown dog for Halloween (just like his best bud, Fred). I'm pretty sure he's going to be the cutest dog that ever was (sorry Fred), and I can't wait to go trick or treating with him this year!

What's everyone up to this weekend?

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

  5. the photos from your trip look amazing! I can't wait to read the whole recap! I'm not a huge halloween fan but my pal is bringing her 1yr old to go trick or treating in my neighborhood so this is probably the one time I'm looking forward to doing something on that day (besides eating all the candy).

  6. Oh my gosh, dressing up M as a dog like his best bud sounds awesome and oh so cute just like that costume! Love me some T Swift, saw her in concert years ago but her songs just keep getting better and better. Hope you have a great low key weekend!

  7. Oh my gosh that costume it too cute!!! Hehe. I went to Sur in L.A. with my sister when she lived there.. I'm glad that you enjoyed it! Your other pictures are great too. I'm glad that you had a fun trip, and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!!

  8. Can't wait to hear about your Wheel adventure! The pix are great! Little M is going to be an adorable trick or treater :)

  9. Your trip looks so amazing! Can't wait for a whole recap!

  10. That dog Halloween costume is the cutest ever!! I also looove Tay Tay's video for Wildest Dreams!

  11. How gorgeous is that LA sunset?! And ahhh you got to go to Sur! That and Villa Blanca are on my list for my next visit to Cali <3

    Happy Friday gurlie can't wait to hear more about your trip and the show!

  12. It looks like you had a blast in LA, and I can't wait to hear more about it! I used the Emily Ley Daily planner last year, and I felt like it was too detailed for me, so I ended up getting the Weekly one for this year. With all that being said, I did get the Erin Condren one as well because my friend swore by it. I don't think you can go wrong with either the Erin Condren or the Emily Ley planners!

  13. I cant wait to hear all about your trip and LA! I hope you did well on the show! I just realized that 1. I need to get to CA and 2. I NEED a jelly bean picture of myself and Taylor for our new place stat! That would be epic (although I can picture Jeter eating them off the picture while I am at work). Stop right now with that Halloween costume! So so cute!

  14. That picture of Lisa Vanderpump... wow, amazing!

    Justine @ Charm City Ciemny's

  15. Ahhh! I so can't wait to hear about the WOF experience! :) Have a great weekend, ladies!

  16. Ahhhh that dog costume is adorable!!! Love that Taylor song and the new emojis. I dont have a fancy planner, mine came from Target. I am excited to see what you chose! Have a great weekend! Roll Tide!

  17. May Designs are great for your purse because they're small and not bulky, but there isn't a ton of room to write. I had an Erin Condren last year, but I love my Emily Ley Simplified Planner. It's been my favorite planner so far! Love your L pictures! Can't wait to read the full recap. And yes to all the emojis! xo, Champagne&Suburbs

  18. Venice beach looks gorgeous! Can't wait to read your LA recap!

  19. I have never been to LA and so want to go soon! Can't wait to hear all about it! Great Five on Friday!!


  20. jellybeans!
    lol about the planners rhyming. so true! i love my plum paper one, you can change the layout if you don't like the vertical, but i guess you can't change the bulkiness lol. i hope you find one you love!


Thanks for visiting The Sequin Notebook! We LOVE hearing from you :)
