Friday’s Favorites Things - 7.19.13


1. Turks and Caicos
Yes, I’m a brat, another vacation, don’t judge me please.  When one friend is prego, and the other just completed her MBA from a top school, you know it's time to celebrate the next chapters in life.  And well, I just need an excuse to celebrate with friends.  But in all honesty, I've realized when it comes to friends, as time goes on things change, circumstances change, and life happens, hence why it is important to seize the moment while you still have time.  Time waits for no one, it's now or never, seize the day, make things happen!  Jeez, just looking at the water and I’m thinking is Turks water really as turquoise as everyone says it is.  Sucks I can't swim, but nothing stops me from going in the water.  Here's to girlfriend getaways.  ~ always fun, always therapeutic, always priceless!turks and caicos                                                                                                         image courtesy Google


2. Nivea Lip Butter Vanilla & Macadamia Nut
Recently at Target I spotted a Nivea lip balm flavored with Vanilla & Macadamia Nut, oooooh.  It smells scrumptious and keeps my lips moist.  Now let's hope I don't lick this stuff off my lips constantly.  The downfall is there is no SPF, but I love the packaging of this lip balm.  ~ $3.50 @ Target or $4 @ Amazon

3. Dress H&M (purchased in green)
Fashion Pick of the Week!  I stopped by H&M just to glance at cute summer dresses for the beach.  I came across this simple jersey dress in multiple colors.  Assuming it was going to be like a 'teenager-tight-dress’, I took 3 sizes to the fitting room, but it wasn't crazy tight.  This cute dress stretches and conforms to your body’s shape.  I loved black, but after taking a few selfies, I decided on green.  Selfies really make decision making easy when you’re shopping alone.  What a steal for just  ~ $13 @ H&M

  16. I can't agree with you even more, definitely Turks and Caicos is a trip worth seizing . This was the most relaxing trips to the Carribean. This is an ultimate relaxing trip that is suitable for a far in pregnancy person. I'm so glad that you pushed me to seize the moment on this Turks and Caicos trip. The green dress definitely looked flattering on you with your golden Turks and Caicos tan. JC
