Five Things On A Friday

Hey there! Happy Friday!

While I do my best to give y’all a Friday Five once a month, I thought it’d be fun to throw a new Friday post out there to you guys from time to time, based on whether y’all like it: Five Things on a Friday! So, I’ll share five things that I’m loving or that I think you should know about whether it’s a sale or a new product or a realization I had about something that I think is helpful or inspiring or insightful.


I feel like I’ve been finding so many Fall sweaters in fun, non-traditional colors this year and it has me extremely excited! While yellow might not be everyone’s color, per se, I thought this yellow turtleneck sweater was a beautiful option for anyone who does fancy it, especially if you live somewhere that will experience leaves changing colors. You will complement them quite nicely 😉 It also comes in a green color and is fairly priced at $68!

Here are some other fun, non-traditional Fall sweater options under $150:


Baublebar is having a huge Friends & Family Sale and it ends TONIGHT! Do not wait! Some of my favorite styles are included, like the two you see above that have been featured on the blog and the four earring & necklace styles you see below that I’ve featured on Instagram! There’s a widget below where all of these styles are linked + some new styles that you’ll be seeing me style with my Fall looks like these fringe drops in the Peach color and this layered necklace that I personalized to honor my Mom.

This necklace is HERE. If you want full outfit details, they can be found in THIS post.

The earrings on the right are HERE. If you want full outfit details, they can be found in THIS post.

Last night, on Instagram, I shared that Justine and Stacy, the gals who work with me on the blog every week, surprised me by sneakily finding a handyman to secure the shelf in my closet that fell back on to the wall. I didn’t ask them to do this for me. We have so many other things that we’re working on. I figured I’d get to it eventually. It made me so happy and feel so loved! It made me think about love languages. What’s yours? Hear the whole story on my IG stories today! I shared it last night so you’ve got a little more time before it expires!

Also, if you were wondering about outfit details from my top yesterday, and the most perfect distressed denim jeans under $80, you can find them in the app or shop here:


J.Crew is having an AMAZING sale that could get you 40% off a bunch of Fall items, like this Winter coat I’ve shared quite a bit, especially lately! The more you buy, the more you save! If you purchase at least four items you will receive 40% off with code SAVEMORE. Here are some of the items I purchased in my recent purchase:

I’ll be doing a try-on haul over the weekend to review these items and more for you guys!


Yesterday, on Instagram, I shared a new hair tool discovery that will be a game-changer on your next trip abroad! So many of y’all ask me what I bring with me so that you know what you should bring with you so I always love sharing new ones with you! This Conair Worldwide Travel Hairdryer works like a dream. It’s lightweight, powerful, has heat settings and all you need is an adaptor! If you haven’t read my Travel Q&A, be sure to check that out. A lot of the knowledge I’ve acquired through my travels has been compiled in that post, including what curling wand I bring with me abroad!

Also, the pajamas I’m wearing are HERE.

Let me know in the comments below if you like today’s Five Things on a Friday and if you’d like me to continue to do these posts! Thanks for stopping by! xo.

    I love that yellow sweater! I bought 3 of the J.Crew jackets last time they had the sale but I can’t keep all of them! I just can’t decide which ones to keep! I bought the light grey, camel and pink. My pink had a little stain so they refunded me and sent me a new one which will be on a different bill so I might keep 2! ?‍♀️Just need to decide on the second colour!

    Maybe it’s just been a long week – but I honestly can’t explain or understand the format difference between Friday Five and Five Things on a Friday.

    All the same to me! I don’t come here to think too much! You’re always posting thoughtful, interesting fashion and lovely photos!
