Hi Lovelies! I hope you all had a great short week! Mine was certainly busy but good and I can’t believe it’s already Friday! One of the things that I look forward to every week is writing my F5F post! I love that these posts let me have a time to reflect on some of the fun things that are going on in my life or in the world. I think it’s often too easy to get bogged down by the negative and it’s important to remember that we are so incredibly lucky! So with that in mind, here we go!
1. Falafel Thins!
When I was in Texas, I made the most amazing food discovery at the most amazing grocery store called Central Market. Right when I spotted these I knew they were a must-buy! Even better? One of the workers opened a bag just so I could try them before I bought them… Now that’s customer service! These little crisps are like a thinner pita chip but with more flavor! I’m sure they would be fantastic in hummus or salsa but I haven’t been able to take my hand out of the bag for long enough to try!
2. Kate Middleton in the US!
I’ve been obsessed with Kate ever since William put a ring on her finger and totally got sucked into learning all the details of the royal wedding. It seemed as though nothing could top that, but knowing that Will and Kate will be in California next week is pretty exciting! I love Kate’s fashion choices and am looking forward to seeing what she decides to wear for her visit to my home state!
3. A San Francisco Weekend!
As much as I loved spending last weekend in Texas, I’m excited to spend this weekend in SF! It’s been a while since I’ve had a true San Francisco weekend and I have some fun plans on the horizon! I have brunch plans with the girls on Saturday and then am heading to a pub crawl later in the day! Then the next day my family is coming into the city and we are going to a Gospel brunch which should be amazing! I’ll try and take pictures if it seems appropriate!
4. TOMS Eyewear!
I’m sure most of you are familiar with TOMS shoes and their one-for-one shoes campaign. Well they just launched a similar campaign for eyewear! Now when you buy a pair of glasses, they will give the gift of sight to one person. They do it by either giving them prescription glasses, medical treatment or even eye-saving surgery. This is such an amazing company and not only are you making a big impact on someone’s life but you also get a cute pair of glasses out of it!
5. New Sandals!
Two weeks ago I randomly received a $25 credit for Gilt Groupe, a designer sample sale site. Although I love Gilt, often the items are still out of my price range so I didn’t think much about my new credit. But, as it turned out, they were having a Havianas sale that day that offered two pairs of the SLIM sandals for $24! I immediately decided that this was too good of a deal to pass up and was so excited when all I had to pay was $4 for shipping! So I basically got 2 pairs of sandals for $2 each! Now that’s my kind of deal!
-Have you ever tried Falafel thins? Or have you seen them anywhere?!
-Do you spend time reflecting on happy things that are going on in your life?
-Do you own a pair of TOMS? Would you buy the sunglasses?
