Five Friday Faves

Welcome to Five Friday Faves, where we shoutout things we're loving that don't exactly fit into the structure of our usual posts. From podcasts to skincare, TV shows to restaurants, and everything in between, see what we're loving lately and let us know what you're obsessed with at the moment in the comments too!


Schitt's Creek
If you have Netflix, you have to check this comedy out! It's about a wealthy family who loses everything and has no choice but to move to "Schitt's Creek," a rundown town they bought as a birthday joke years before. My husband and I started watching it after my parents recommended it and, though we don't always have the same taste in shows, we also thought this was a winner. It was created by Eugene Levy and his son Dan, and also stars Catherine O'Hara, so it has a very "Best of Show" or "Waiting for Guffman" vibe to it, though it isn't a mockumentary. Also, the character Moira Rose is basically my new fashion icon.

Dry Brushing
Have you heard of dry brushing? It's a homeopathic immune-supporting practice that I've been trying to work into my routine and have really been enjoying. It's just what it sounds like: you brush your body with a special body brush before showering. Working in motions towards your heart, you stimulate your lymphatic system, and essentially help your body to detox. Not to mention, you get a good exfoliation, and the practice has also be attributed to reducing cellulite. It naturally invigorates you as well, so it's a great way to start your morning routine. Want to try it out? Pick up your own dry brush here.

You've probably seen Facebook ads of Kate Hudson in adorable workout gear in your newsfeed wearing her line, Fabletics. The way you had to sign up for the program to see much of anything kind of turned me off, but after hearing how their leggings really are great, I decided to sign up and give it a try. I've only received three orders, but I've been impressed so far and I'm so excited to fill my wardrobe with fun new workout wear. I'd also be happy to answer any questions you have about it!

You are a Badass
This book by Jen Sincero is a great intro to self-improvement books, with a dash of humor and a side of sarcasm. Maybe it's because I'm staring down the barrel of turning 30, but I'm in the process of trying to get motivated about my life, and keeping her principles in mind have really started to turn my outlook around. I'm also excited to check out a lot of books she's referenced!

Who What Wear spring collection
Who What Wear's winter collection at Target had some great wintry pieces, from lots of velvet to sheer party dress looks, but I'm venturing to say I'm even more in love with the spring collection. Filled with florals, feminine details, and trending yet sophisticated cuts, it basically contains all my favorite style elements. I'm ready to get my hands on all of it (especially giving heart eyes to the shoes!).


Queer Eye
I have very fond memories of the first installment of Queer Eye, so I was a little skeptical that this new version wouldn't deliver. Let me tell you, it is The.Best.Show.Ever! We had an ice day last weekend and may or may not have binged the entire new season (we totally did). It's touching, genuine and hilarious, plus it tackles a lot of issues that are hot topics right now without being controversial or alienating. Bonus: we got a lot of great ideas for decorating our home and for recipes to try too! 

Jade Rolling
I saw a lot of bloggers that I follow using a jade roller and thought to myself, what's the big deal? I decided to read up on it and found a cheaper one on Amazon here, so figured I'd give it a try. Well, I am so glad that I did because I've been using it every day since! It has many benefits, but the thing that hooked me was that it's a great way to rid your body of toxins by promoting lymphatic drainage, increases blood circulation, and reduces puffiness. I could actually feel things starting to move around and drain in my sinuses, plus the cooling properties help with puffiness around my eyes. There are a ton of other benefits though and you can read about them here

Bitch Sesh: A Real Housewives Breakdown
This isn't necessarily a new fav of mine, but I talk about it to whoever will listen, whenever I can. If you're a fan of The Real Housewives franchises or anything Bravo, you NEED to listen to this podcast! It is hosted by Casey Wilson and Danielle Schneider, with tons of celebrity guests. I literally laugh out loud throughout every episode. It's also a great way to not feel SO terrible about watching trash TV.


This isn't a new concept by any means, and you've probably heard about it by now, but Hygge (pronounced HOO-ga) is Danish for being "cozy" more or less. It's the art of creating moments throughout your day where you slow down and revel in small pleasures. Give yourself a treat. Be kind to yourself and others. Take a break from your routine. Live in the moment and take pleasure in the little things. Winter is the perfect time to get into the groove of hygge, so I am embracing it wholeheartedly right now!

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
I was just at an event and someone mentioned that May 19th was the date of their wedding. I thought to myself, hmm I think I have something planned that day, then realized I totally do because it's the ROYAL WEDDING! I am loving Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's love story. I am here for every single moment of it. Her style is flawless and I can't wait to soak in every detail of their wedding in just a few short months! In the meantime, I will be over here pinning all of her outfits and stalking their every move.
