5 Things on Friday

One. Jamberry Nails

Have you heard of Jamberry? This company makes "nail wraps" in fun colors and patterns that look and feel just like a gel manicure! A friend and Jamberry consultant was nice enough to let me try out some samples and I was so impressed--both with the ease of application and the look. A regular manicure for me lasts roughly 8 hours..I wish I were kidding. I'm on day 5 and still going strong! I work in a pretty conservative office environment so I can't go too crazy with my nails but I loved using the floral nail wrap for a fun accent nail. I paired the accent nail with OPI Sweet Memories for a feminine look. There are endless colors and patterns to choose from. I can't wait to try more!

Check out Jamberry Nail Wraps to browse all the options!

Two. Earth Day

Wednesday was Earth Day and instead of going to the gym or my Zumba class I opted to take a hike. I'm lucky enough to live smack dab in the middle of the Appalachian Mountains so there are plenty of hills to climb. It's so easy to take for granted the beauty of a place that you are exposed to everyday but this natural beauty was truly breathtaking! I definitely got my workout in climbing to the top of this baby!

Three.  Anthropologie Giveaway

Four. Backpack Purses

Have you all seen these lately? They're apparently making a BIG comeback. I'm pretty sure the last time these were in style I sported one just like this...please tell me you did too. 

Nonetheless, I can't deny that I really want one now! Some are so cute and would be perfect for summer travel. I know it's a trend and I will likely not want to carry it forever so here are some cheapies I have my eye on. 

Five. Rocksbox. 

I finally jumped on the bandwagon and signed up for my first Rocksbox. Subscription boxes are so fun and such a nice surprise to find in the mail once a month. This may be my favorite one. So have you ever dreamed of going into your favorite store buying everything you want..leaving the tags on..wearing it for a month..then returning it? (hopefully I'm not the only one with a fashion criminal mind) Rocksbox gives you that option (without being a fraud!)! They send you a box with 3 high quality jewelry pieces each wear them all you want (or have option to buy)..then you can send them back and get a new box of new pieces! GENIUS. WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THIS? 

Here are my pieces from my first box. 

Perry Street Abby Necklace (Retails $64)

Have a great weekend friends!

  4. I love the backpack trend. Have a great weekend

  5. so love that you got to hike in those beautiful hills! i have mixed feelings about this backpack trend coming back but there are some cute ones!

  6. I so remember when backpack purses were popular and I had quite a few. I'm glad they're coming back. I might have to get into them again.

  7. I like the Jamberry nails too - such cool designs (and removes any Pinterest fail potential LOL). Happy Friday!

  8. I just had a Jamberry sample sent to me. I can't wait to try it.

  9. I love those nails, I need to check them out! I'm totally into backpack purses too. Here in NYC I carry around a bookbag all the time, but I totally remember those cute teddy bear ones. Heck, I still have a Pikachu. ;)
