Friday Favorites: Spring Edition

It’s Friday, and I’ve got some new favorite things to gush about, so you know what that means: it’s time for some Friday Favorites! This week’s theme is all about the joys I’ve experienced so far this spring (all 7 days of it):

1. House of Cards

house-of-cardsOK people. I know I’ve talked about this show before, when I discovered it on a long treadmill run and got hooked from the first minute. But the initial love has turned into a full-blown obsession, and I find myself talking about these people to anyone who will listen. I’m trying our Zoe Barnes’ hairstyles. I’m approaching work annoyances with a “What Would Claire Do?” mentality. When Peter Russo’s watershed bill failed, I caught myself shaking my head in heartbreak for him THE DAY AFTER I WATCHED THE EPISODE. Guys. Help. Anyone else with me on the Underwood bandwagon?

2. The Starbucks Birthday Cake Frappuccino

11055928_658446210933827_620156968_nMy friend at work sent me a link via Skype yesterday, and all it said was “Soooo tomorrow?” Seeing as today is my 2 year anniversary at my job, I jumped at the opportunity to celebrate both Starbucks’ birthday and my work-a-versary with a Birthday Cake Frappuccino!

It’s evidently their vanilla and hazelnut flavors all swirled up, topped with raspberry-infused whipped cream, and damned if it doesn’t taste surprisingly cake-like! It was a little sweeter than I’m used to though (says the girl who can eat frosting right from the can), so I’m suffering a bit in the aftermath. I crashed pretty hard after I finished it and crave super healthy clean stuff now, like hardboiled eggs or edamame, but all in all I think it was worth it šŸ˜‰

3. Today’s necklace:

This is the Flamenco by Lia Sophia. A while ago I bought this pretty lady along with a handful of other baubles when I heard that Lia Sophia was going out of business. I’m a sucker for shiny things and had to have it, even if I wasn’t sure what to wear it with.

Fast forward to this week, when I made a promise to myself to try one new article of clothing or fashion accessory every day. Nude pointy-toed pumps, a scarf with pineapples printed on it, an old repurposed t-shirt.. things were going great! Then I spied a fancy necklace on a coworker yesterday, and inspiration struck. She had the right idea by pairing it with a simple slouchy tee – and that’s how Flamenco worked her way into my wardrobe!

How’s your Friday going? Do you want to share your own obsessions with me? Tell me – I’m always looking for new things to love on! Happy Friday, everyone!

  1. Very beautiful necklace šŸ™‚ and oooh didn’t know they had that at starbucks. Have a great weekend šŸ™‚

  2. Okay, I totally love/hate that you told me Lia Sophia is going out of business. I do love House of Cards but haven’t started the new season yet. I’m waiting until I’m caught up and finished with everything else im currently watching.

  3. I love this! Your posts are so fun to read! I’ve literally just finished confessing my obsession with “the voice” UK – so reading your post just now is perfectly timed.. expect I’m ashamed by my obsession.
    Hope you have a fab weekend!
