Friday Favorites and a Giveaway Winner!

Here's what I've been loving this week:

Wild One by Flo Rida featuring Rihanna

Love this song! 

Kellogg's Krave Double Chocolate Cereal 

I've been eating some of this dry every night as my dessert/snack, and it is SO yummy! I can't imagine eating it  with milk or for breakfast, but it's perfect for a healthy, chocolate dessert!

A Place of Yes 

I don't usually read self-help books, but I love Bethenny, so I thought it would be interesting to see what she had to say. I actually started this book over the summer, but never finished because it's a little slow. But once I got into it, it was much better, and I loved reading her personal stories throughout the book! I don't know if I'd necessarily recommend it, but if you like Bethenny, you'll love it!

Seriously, I'm obsessed. I want everything!

Vacation, all I ever wanted....

I think the warm weather is finally getting to my head. Right now, I can't concentrate on anything. All I can think about is hopping on a plane and heading somewhere tropical. Ideally, my plane would fly to....

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where I'd relax and lay out on the beach,

while wearing this, 

and this, 

as I sip on a few margaritas, 

munch on chips and fresh guacamole, 

and catch-up on the news. 

Ahhh, if only....a girl can dream to get her through until summer, right? Is anyone else dying for a vacation right now? Hope you have a fabulous day, no matter where you are!

Let's Work it Out!

With warm weather and summer quickly approaching, it's time to up the workouts and get ready for bikini season! I've been trying to hit the gym most days, and I've also been trying to eat pretty healthily. Since I've been visiting the gym a lot, I thought I'd share some of my workout essentials with y'all!

Workout Time!
  • Hat and Sunglasses--If I'm running outside, these are a must! I'm pretty fair, so anything to keep the sun off of my face is essential! 
  • Headband--I have longer bangs, so I always pull my hair straight back into a ponytail and then put a headband on to keep my hair out of my face. 
  • Sunscreen--I always wear sunscreen, even if I'm only running for 20 minutes! 
  • Nike Shorts--Also known as Norts, these are the best! I'll only workout in Norts during the Spring, Summer, and early fall! They're SO comfortable. 
  • Camelbak--I love my Camelbak, and always take it with me to the gym. I know you're technically not suppose to drink anything flavored out of it, but I always add the Raspberry Lemonade Crystal Light to the water in my Camelbak. As long as I wash it (and the mouth piece) at the end of the day, it's fine!
  • Champion Sports Bras--I love the sports bras at Target. They're cheap (only $17!!), and they come in tons of fun colors. My favorite right now is the neon pink!
  • iPod--I use to never use my iPod at the gym (weird, I know), but now I can't workout without it. I have different playlists for different types of workouts! 
  • T-shirts--I know some people workout in tighter fitting exercise tops, but I always workout in tshirts. 
  • Tennis Skirts--I love working out and playing tennis in Nike tennis skirts--they're the best! 
  • Magazines--If I'm on the treadmill or elliptical, I always read magazines. 
  • TLC Kashi Bars--These are perfect for an after-gym snack! My favorite flavor is peanut butter--YUM! 
What are some of your workout essentials? What's your favorite workout? Have a wonderful day!

Etsy Obsessed

I have found a new obsession: Etsy. I've ordered a few things from the site before, but lately, I've been finding SO many cute things that I just have to have. Here are some of my recent finds and obsessions: 
LOVE this necklace. 
Could anything be better than a monogrammed burlap koozie? 
I blogged about looking for a hat last week, and this might be the perfect one! I love the monogram! 
I love how simple this necklace is! It's perfect! 

Devon Baer 
I love this tunic SO much! The $225 price tag is a little too steep for my college girl budget, but I can dream, right?

Say Hay 
I've blogged about these paintings before--I just love them!

This tumbler is perfect for sipping water throughout the day! So cute!

Are you as obsessed with Etsy as me? Have you found any must-haves lately? Have a fantastic day!

Friday Favorites

Here's what I've been loving this week! 

I was sure that I wouldn't like this show, but a friend convinced me to watch the pilot over the weekend, and I was hooked! It is too funny! 

OPI in Elephantastic Pink 
I painted my nails with this springy color the other night, and I just love it! It's perfect for the warm weather we've been having! 

Stella and Dot Jewelry Roll 
How cute is this jewelry roll?! If I didn't already have one, I'd be scooping it up! It has tons of pockets, and it's perfect for traveling!

Lean Cuisine Chicken Enchilada Suiza 
I have had this for lunch almost every week day for the past 2 weeks! It's SO yummy, convenient, and healthy! 

What have you been loving this week? Have a fabulous weekend!

Bear with me for a bit, because I'm going to go on a bit of a rant. 

First off, my computer is dunzo, which has been causing me so much stress. A year and a half ago, when I was getting ready to start my freshman year of college, I bought a Dell Inspiron laptop, in of course, a shade of pink. I had heard wonderful things about the Inspiron notebooks, but let me tell you, I've had nothing but problems.  Lately, my computer has been extra slow, and it's been turning off randomly, in addition to no longer charging.Yesterday, my computer decided to finally die, so of course I frantically took it to the Geek Squad, and they said there's not much they can do for it. Ughh frustrated is an understatement. Since I'll have to replace it sometime soon, I wanted to get y'alls opinions. Do you think I should go with another PC or a Mac? I'd love some suggestions!

Sorry for the crazy/short post! Hope you have a lovely Thursday!

Target Pink (and green) Finds

I was at Target a few nights ago, and I was impressed at all of the cute pink (and green) items I found while browsing the store! Some were even from my favorite place in Target, the Dollar Section!

How cute is this bowl I found in the dollar section? It also comes in blue, green, yellow, and purple! I scooped one up to use as a cereal bowl, but I think they'd be super cute as ice cream bowls during the summer! Even better, each bowl is only $2.50! 

I love this summer hat, also found in the dollar section! It was on sale for $2.50 and would be perfect to wear at the beach!

I loved these pails! Wouldn't they be so cute with a monogram on the front? For $2.50, you could scoop up a few, and they could be used as gift holders, for flowers, or to put baked goods in as a small gift!

LOVED this pink scarf with green giraffes! 

Cute, lightweight scarves for spring!

I bought 3 of these bathing suit cover-ups last summer, and they are amazing! I think they're $17.99, so they're not too expensive, and they are so comfortable!

LOVE Target for cute, cheap swimsuits!

I loved this makeup bag. The colors and the print are so pretty! 

Have you found anything cute at Target lately? Also, don't forget to enter my giveaway for an adorable Lilly shift pillow! Have a great day!

Hats, Hats, Hats

I've never been a fan of hats, but lately I've been looking for a cute hat to wear while working out or running outside. I can't decide on what I want though! Here are some options I'm loving:

Friday Favorites

Here are my favorites from the week! 

Jackie Cardigan in Neon Azalea 
I am obsessed with Jackie cardigans, and although this is my 4th pink Jackie cardigan (all different shades, of course), I'm still in love with it! I picked this up earlier this week, and I cannot wait to wear it!

Kate Spade Sunglasses 
I've been needing a new pair of sunglasses for a while, so I finally splurged and got these Kate Spade glasses. LOVE them! 

Marley Lilly Hat 
My mom called me and told me that my Marley Lilly hat came in yesterday! I can't wait to see it! This isn't my exact hat--of course mine has my monogram (in navy), with a pink rim. I can't wait to wear it to Foxfield this year! 

Running Outside
With all of this warm weather, I've been running outside almost daily, which has been so nice! I've never been much of a runner, but sometimes when I'm stressed (which I am), I just want to go for a nice, long run. This is a picture of the lake where I've been running this week-so pretty! 

What were you loving this week? Have a fabulous Friday!
