5 Things Friday

Happy Friday y'all! Another week has come and gone and time for the weekend! I thought I would do a little "five things Friday" on the blog today. Also, I can not believe I have over 3,000 views on my blog! THANK YOU!!! When I started this adventure not too long ago I was just hoping that 20 people would read a post but the response has been wonderful! I'm going to put together a giveaway soon so be on the look out! In the meantime, here are my 5 things:
1. Brantley Cecilia NOLA Accessories
Another gem I found via Instagram. This New Orleans based jewelry designer has some of the most unique pieces and good prices. I love having jewelry pieces that not everyone has or that looks like every single department store selection so I try and seek out new boutiques and designers. There were several pieces I wanted for my collection but I settled on this light pink beaded arrowhead and the gold shark tooth. The mailman must think I'm cray because he delivers so frequently to my house. What can I say? I'm an online shopping addict.

2. Designer Consignment Stores

Last night I had the pleasure of attending a blogger event (shout out to Bham Bloggers) at a local designer consignment store. Places like this are fabulous on finding designer treasures. My best piece is probably a David Yurman ring (one of the large ones) I got years ago. It even came with the certification that it was legit and I wear that ring ALL the time and always get compliments. Be expecting a full recap of the event and consignment tips next week!

3. Trainwreck

I get that comedian Amy Schumer can be a little on the raunchy side but I find her hilarious most of the time. I am pumped to finally see Trainwreck tonight! I feel like it has been forever since I've been to the movies (ok, like two weeks) but I love me a movie night! Grab your date or pals and head out to see this one!

4. Clueless Anniversary

As if! I know it's hard to believe that this summer marks the 20th anniversary...yes 20 years ago the instant classic Clueless came out. The film loosely based on the Jane Austen novel Emma is one of the most loved, quotable, you just have to watch it movies of all time. I saw this super fun Totally Cher Mug from the always adorable site Birthday Girl. Be a "total Betty" in style while you watch the film!

5. Go Set a Watchman

I'll admit I'm skeptical but the English major in me has to read this follow up to Harper Lee's masterpiece To Kill a Mockingbird. I have heard mixed reviews about the new novel and no doubt it can't hold a candle to the original but I picked up my copy today and hope to be finished with it in a few days (if I can find the time to actually sit and read!) and will post my thoughts. Excited to see what's in store and see if Lee can recapture the riveting storytelling of her past work. Let me know if you have read it already!

Hope everyone has a lovely Friday and weekend!

P.S. it's also National Tequila Day....have some fun and be safe!
