Five on Friday: {January 15, 2016}

Happy Friday Gals! I can't even believe we're half-way into January already (which also means, only half a month until my birthday!).  I'm excited for a day off on Monday, so as usual, we're kicking things off with our Five on Friday.

New Car!

This past Saturday I became the proud owner of this beauty! GG and I have been talking for a while about trading in my old Murano for something new, but we decided to wait in hopes of me hitting it big on the wheel. Since that didn't exactly pan out, we ended up "browsing" this past weekend, and they made us a deal we just couldn't resist, so we decided to pull the trigger! 

May Books

A while back I mentioned how I was searching for my next planner, and as it would turn out, I have found multiple that I love, thanks to May Books! These beloved notebooks have a cult following for a reason - they are awesome! On top of the adorable designs they offer, I love how simple they are. Plus they are pretty thin, which means that I can fit a bunch in my purse with adding much bulk. Anyone else a fan of ditching those huge planners for something simpler?

Target Beauty Box
I was lucky enough to snag one of the new year Target Beauty boxes and it's seriously the best $7 I've spent in a while. The theme of the box was refresh, and it contained all sorts of goodies for the new year. Unfortunately it's already sold out, but if your interested in finding out when the next one launches, I definitely recommend checking out the awesome blog, My Subscription Addiction. They review pretty much every subscription box out there, and also post updates of new launches, including the Target box!

The most amazing glittery gold glasses

ICYMI, we kicked off our first cocktail link-up of the new year, and while we couldn't get enough of the cocktail recipe, it's clear that these glasses stole the show! They were a Christmas gift from my sister - these exact ones seem to be sold out online, but how cute are these and this matching flask?! But the funniest thing about these glasses are that when I was opening them, my sister says to me "I really love this gift, but I think it's going to make you mad". Of course with that disclaimer, I couldn't wait to see what was inside, and while I absolutely loooove these glasses, she clearly knows me well because my first thought was that I could have totally made these myself - lol! But as my mom pointed out, there are only so many hours in a day, so sometimes it's ok to just enjoy the pretty premade glasses and call it a day (I mean, priorities, right?!).


And lastly, apparently I'm a 14 year old, because I've been obsessing over the new(ish) One Direction album - haha! Even though it's a pretty embarrassing thing to admit, I just can't get enough of these guys. It's been on constant repeat for the past couple of weeks and I feel like every song is better than the next.

Hope everyone has a fantastic long weekend!

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