Friday Five

I am so, so happy January is over, I can’t even begin to describe it. The relief is palpable. January was a shitty month, and I know it wasn’t its fault entirely, but I’m ready to move on from this month and leave it behind. 2013 can only go up from here, right? Right.

February was supposed to be the month I didn’t spend any money, per my 26 in 26 list, but I’m thinking that’s going to have to wait until later in the year. Not only because it’s the last few weeks leading up to my Paris trip, but also because, and you might have heard me shrieking about this all the way where you are, but the New Kids on the Block are going back on tour and tickets go on sale tomorrow. I AM SO PUMPED. You might remember previous references to them, but rest assured that my obsession has only spiraled wildly out of control in the intervening months, doubling in insanity the past few weeks after I found out about this new tour.

So yeah, not buying anything? Not gonna work. Especially since this week’s Friday Five kicks off the month of February, and I want everything in it:


1. Pillowcases / 2. Towels / 3. Agate Trivet / 4. Shelf / 5. Ring

This might be one of my favorite round-ups ever. Everything is so bright and colorful and do we need to talk about those pillowcases? Non, we do not. I’m thinking about buying a set of those towels and that little metal shelf for the powder room, only both are too cute to actually use. And I know agate is having a comeback, but that beautiful blue coaster needs to make an appearance in my house soon. Both the coaster and the (gorgeous) ring are from the delightful Leif Shop.

What are you up to this weekend? I’m spending Sunday morning with my nieces and am really looking forward to it. Tomorrow I have a hot date with my sweatpants and that book I’m writing. Remember that? Me neither, it’s been so long since I’ve devoted any real stretch of time to it. Have a great one, kiddos!

  1. That IS a colorful Friday Five. I like everything you have there! We need a shelf for our bathroom, and I was thinking glass, but…hmmmmm. That one might be too cute to pass up. We all need to rest here, but I have (ahem) blog work to do and general house stuff. Is it weird that I’m looking forward to nesting a bit?

  2. Feb is obvs the best month as it’s my birthday! Oh crap I’ve just realised I”m getting married next month now eek!!!
    Those pillows are nuts, they make me giggle.
    that’s a shame you’ve not done much writing, get back on the saddle girl! You’ll love it xx

  4. January has gone, hip hip hooray indeed. The nights are drawing out finally and Spring is around the corner, I can smell it – my favourite time of the year :-)

    I shall be perusing and choosing products tomorrow afternoon – the effort! *sighs* and writing posts for P&F. Den’s in your country for two weeks so it things will be a little quieter around here. Hope you make a good dent in your writing too lovely. Happy weekend x

  5. Oh, I’m right there with you – So happy January is over. Yes, I firmly believe – I’m willing it – that things can only get better. I’m liking this roundup. I actually gave those towels to my Aunt for Christmas! :) The ring – Gaw! I’m thinking it would make the perfect Vday gift. Can you make sure my husband gets the memo? Let’s see, what’s going on this weekend. I know we have something planned, but it’s escaping me right now. Oh well, it will come back to me later. Have a ball with your nieces, Best Auntie in the World, and get lots of writing done. xo

  6. Good luck on your hot date with your sweats! Weekends are for cozying up, right?

    I’m totally loving those bon soir pillows too. Talk about dreamy.
