Friday Five

1. Bittersweet Hair Tie Bracelet.  UM BRILLIANT.  It's a bangle with a groove sized to perfectly fit a hair elastic.  No more unattractive impressions or tacky hair ties on your wrist.  It also comes in multiple metal colors.  Pretty sure I need one, actually I'm pretty sure anyone who ever wears ponytails needs one ;)  PS- get $10 off your first order if you sign up for your account HERE.
2. Le Papier Studio.  How adorable is this little custom print of Sherlock?!  I die.  It has a place in my closet, but I had to share a peek first.  Plus you can sign up for their sale emails and get 15% off your order!
3. Why are Tampons Still Taxed?  While Cosmo isn't normally my source for quality reading material, I thought this was a pretty fascinating article.  The author brings up a few points that have never crossed my mind, notably that more states tax tampons than candy and while menstruation is an involuntary bodily function, like going to the bathroom, tampons and pads cost money in public restrooms.  Imagine if toilet paper and seat covers cost each time you used them??  

4. American Giant.  I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I ordered my first item from American Giant, the company known for making the best ever sweatshirts.  Their claim does not exaggerate.  I am OBSESSED.  I got the classic crewneck in Navy... and Branch.  The fit, construction, and feel is superb.  My only complaint is that the 'branch' color is less olive looking in real life than the stock photo illustrates, but it's still a pretty color and frankly, I would happily wear these no matter what the color.  I went with the medium, and it's got some room, but it's perfect to layer and is still flattering.

5. This week was our 3 year anniversary and my birthday!  Yay!!  I got a new camera lens (thanks parents!) and I am SO excited.  All along I thought I had a 50mm f/1.8, but alas I had a 40mm f/2.8.  While it's been a solid lens for me, the f/2.8 makes getting strong bokeh much more difficult.  I also got a pretty new handbag, the coolest lightbulbs ever, and nearly 5lbs of coconut chocolate covered almonds (you can find them at Costco but they're a limited time item- hurry!).  Don't judge hahaha.  

Yay Friday!  Hope everyone has a great Friday and fun-filled (or Netflix-PJ-filled...) weekend!  Tonight we have lofty plans of Froyo and Netflix and tomorrow we're going out for a fancier Anniversary/Birthday dinner :)

Thanks for reading


  1. I love that bracelet idea for hair ties!! I always get grooves in my arm, and it makes it so stylish too!


  2. That bracelet that holds a hair elastic is so cool! I would use that thing every day!


  3. Oh my gosh, first of all that bracelet is genius! Second of all, I need some prints of my animals-I wonder if they could do horses?

    1. I bet they would! Vana was super responsive so I'd just shoot her an email and ask. I just sent in a few pictures of Sherlock and they used those as a guide, so I bet a horse would work too!

  4. Okay, that bittersweet hair tie bracelet is genius! My black hair tie always shows up in pics and looks so tacky! Happy Friday!

  5. Cute dog and nice watch :)
