Happy Friday! And welcome to the Friday five 😎 I hope you all had an excellent week and have a relaxing weekend. For those of you in Chiberia and other freezing areas, stay warm! This might be the one weekend I’m not dreading going to work because it means we won’t be running our electric heating unit all day, every day. That gets expensive. I never realized how important central AC/forced heat is. Next apartment, for sure.
ONE // Madewell Kimball Pullover Sweater — I picked up this sweater last weekend and am obsessed with it! I almost got it in grey but I have, like, 3 other grey sweaters so heather rose it is! I love this sweater because it’s a loose fit, with a lower cut neck but I don’t feel overexposed when I put it on. And it’s long enough to cover my butt when I wear leggings! It also brings a fun pop-of-color to an outfit! It’s currently on sale for $54.50 and if you use code DOUBLEYAY, you’ll get an additional 40% off!
TWO // Manicures — Prior to this weekend, I couldn’t remember the last time I had a manicure. I think it was for a friends wedding in 2014. I love when my nails painted but a) regular manicures aren’t really in the budget right now and b) I’m really bad at painting them myself. So, my nails are rarely painted. But! I got a manicure at a nail bar over the weekend for $12! Twelve-freakin’-dollars! And it came with a mimosa! I think manicures are going to become a more-than-once-every-5-years type of thing around here.
THREE // Pesto… in my omelets! Liz Adams shared a delicious looking meal the other day so I made a delicious looking meal (#CadyHeron). But really, an omelet with tomato-basil chicken sausage, and pesto? GET IN MY BELLY. Serve it up with a side salad and you’ve got yourself a nutritious meal.
FOUR // New Backstreet Boys! My music tastes have absolutely not changed in the last 15 years. The latest BSB album dropped TODAY so I’ll be listening to it pretty much non-stop for the foreseeable future. That and the fact that I’m seeing Jesse McCartney on Tuesday makes for one happy gal.
FIVE // Not this weather. It is currently 7 degrees outside and we’re supposed to get some freezing spray? I’m unsure what that is. I’m going to be doing my best to not leave my apartment as much as possible. I plan to cozy up with a good book, a cup of HOT tea, and maybe make some banana bread. Yum.
