Five on Friday {January 22, 2016}


TGIF! Even though this was a short work week, I'm still very excited that the weekend is just around the corner! It's looking like we're going to get hit with our first big snowstorm of the year in New York, so I'm ready to get cozy under a blanket with some hot chocolate and good movies. In the meantime, here are the five things I'm loving this week! 

 
New iPhone case

I realize that my new phone case is probably intended for 12-year-old girls, but I just can't get enough of its sparkle! Not only is it pretty, but I actually find the drifting stars to be quite calming, haha. I became obsessed with this case when I saw my friend Sarah's at her wedding last month, and T surprised me with one of my very own earlier this week. This little treat was a big winner in our house!

Conversation hearts

I've mentioned my obsession with Brach's conversation hearts once or twice before, and I'm thrilled that my annual hunt for this elusive candy found early success! Not only did I find my beloved Brach's (as opposed to the inferior Sweethearts brand), but I managed to score some jumbo, resealable bags (Brach's is getting pretty fancy!). And of course, I had to stock up on two since they were buy one, get one 50% off. I'll just be over here in the corner, eating allllllllll the sugar (and hoping these bags will last me until the post-V Day candy clearances!). Anyone else a fan of this holiday treat?


New desk accessories

As I'm settling into my new job, I'm on the hunt for pretty office accessories to add some flair to my new space. I've snapped up the Kate Spade acrylic/gold desk set, but I'm still looking for other little touches to personalize the office...do you have any favorite office supplies? I'm also considering purchasing a standing desk, and would love to hear any pros/cons from people who have used one!  


The Mindy Project

I'm a big Mindy fan (love her books!) and I've been told by several of my closest friends (including M) for years that I would be obsessed with this show, but somehow I never quite found the right time to try it out. I just signed up for a free Hulu trial so it was the perfect excuse to give this show a spin, and I seriously cannot get enough of it! This will definitely be part of a bingefest this weekend. Any other fans out there?

Return to yoga 

One of my goals for 2016 is to try to find ways to relax and take time for myself so that I don't get overwhelmed and stressed. I used to love yoga but haven't practiced regularly in quite some time, so I was nervous to go back to class last week. I shouldn't have worried because it felt amazing to both stretch and calm my mind! I found a great deal at a studio close to my apartment so I'm hoping to incorporate this into my regular routine (and as a bonus, T joined me at the class so it looks like I might have a built-in yoga buddy!). Of course, I'm now all about getting some new workout gear, so if any yogis have recommendations about where to shop, I'd love to hear your thoughts!

If the snow is coming your way this weekend, stay safe and warm!

  3. No way, I'm obsessed with Brachs conversation hearts too and none of my family and friends like them! It has to be Brachs, am I right? They're the best!! Wonder why they have become so hard to find? I did find the small boxes at Wal-Greens but I need those big bags!! Fantastic stapler!! Happy weekend gorgeous!!

  7. Wait, does that phone case have liquid inside?! It reminds me of this heart wallet that I had when I was a little girl haha. It had liquid inside of it and glitter and stars would move around. That stapler is also super cute. I hope that you survive the snow and have a wonderful weekend!!! :-)

  8. LOVE that phone case, and I'm way beyond 12 years old, lol! That stapler is also really pretty. Have fun decorating your new space! I also used to really enjoy yoga, but have been away from it for years. You've given me incentive to give it another go. Stay cozy and warm this weekend and enjoy :)

  10. I love the Kate Spade desk stuff! I just got the most adorable rhino letter holder from Target. Search their Nate Berkus line for desk accessories. We're getting hit with Jonas too. . .we're forecasted to get somewhere around 8-16" from it. And I've already been through a bag of the large conversation hearts:)

  25. I am a Mindy fan! I liked her second book better than the first though. I'm behind on the show and need to catch up on that. I love that phone case! And I have not done yoga in ages but it's on my to do list again. I really need to start getting into the whole exercise routine again.

  26. oh congrats on getting back into yoga! that is awesome. i try and do a little at home but i really need to make it a priority to go to an actual class, even if it's just at the Y lol. i've been curious about standing desks, but unfortunately i can't use one at work so you'll have to let us know how it goes if you get one!
