5 on Friday

Oh Friday...I couldn't be happier that you're here! And what a week it's been! A hectic one, but a good one nonetheless. One of the big reasons why I'm excited it's Friday is because my favorite link-up started back up last week! In other news, I'm also looking forward to the weekend so that I can spend as much time outdoors as I possibly can. The weather lately has been perfect and I feel it would be silly to let it slip away without enjoying it first. I hope y'all enjoy whatever you have planned (or don't have planned) for the next few days and before I leave here are my 5 on Friday.

Vogue's 73 Questions with Reese Witherspoon is a must watch. It's short, sweet and who doesn't love Reese and her bubbly personality? Oh, can you guess what she said her rapper stage name would be? Watch the video to find out her answer along with her responses to all the other questions!
Gilmore Girls. Need I say more? In honor of Netflix bringing us ALL seven seasons, Fashionista.com presents us with 11 of the best fashion moments from the show and let me just say that after reading this article, it made me THAT much more excited to spend my free time watching every single episode back to back.
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and it's always been that way. When I lived at home with my parents, we would have BFD (Breakfast for Dinner) some nights and I always looked forward too having breakfast twice in one day. Fun fact; I almost always requested french toast. So when I came across an article on 43 breakfast spots in the Charlotte area recommended by Charlotte Magazine, I knew I was in trouble. My mouth water's just thinking about all of these yummy places I'll be trying in the coming weeks...

If you're anything like me, you don't tend to wear makeup every single day. I try to give my face a few days a week to just breath and I should probably do it more often. When I do wear makeup though, I tend to get frustrated when applying concealer. It either feels to thick when I put it on, is not the right color or just doesn't seem to hide those bags under my eyes or the redness around my nose as much as I would like. Tell me I'm not the only one who has felt this way before! After reading this article though, I was able to learn some pretty helpful tips and tricks and hope with the purchase of a few new products my hate for concealer will vanish away.
Will and I booked our honeymoon a few days ago and the anticipation of going is killing us! For starters, we did what seemed like weeks of research and narrowed down our options to Jamaica, Antigua, St. Lucia, and Turks and Caicos. We both wanted to stay somewhere that was all-inclusive, wasn't too touristy, had more then one restaurant on the property, and was a place that allowed us to relax and be adventurous at the same time. Oh, and time flying was also a huge factor we looked into.

It was pretty easy for us to take Jamaica and Turks and Caicos off the list, although we want to go there one of these days. Pretty much from the beginning we knew it would come down to either Antigua or St. Lucia and after talking to some of our family and friends, we finally decided on....St. Lucia! More specifically at the Cap Maison Hotel Resort & Spa!

It's hard to look at these photos without getting giddy with excitement. I can imagine the days we will relax by the pool, sip on tropical drinks, take tons of photos and explore the area. Time will not be a factor and relaxing and enjoying one on one time with each other will be pretty much the only things on our agenda. If you've ever been to St. Lucia I would love for you to leave a comment or email me with recommendations on things to do and places to check out!
