Friday Fives

Hey ya'll!

First off, I wanted to thank everyone so much for your help with the "watch dilemma" from my last post. I read each one of your comments! I fell in love with both watches, but I've decided to go with the {gramercy crystal} solely because I will wear it forever and can wear it with anything.

Now, on to other things.
As school is winding down and graduation nears, I can't help but feel extremely anxious and emotional whenever I think about my life in a few months. For the past four years, I've lived within a comfortable "bubble" known as Chapel Hill, and it's scary to know that I'll soon be thrust into the real world.

But since spontaneously busting into tears tends to freak people out a little bit, I've been trying to keep myself distracted. So here are my Friday Fives!

1. The Lust List

If I wasn't a broke college student, here's what I'd be spending my dolla bills on this week:
{glitter coin purse}{YSL lipstick}
{Kate Spade polish}

2. I just made my first Ebay purchase! I bought {this bauble necklace}:


You may notice that it's very similar to {this} J.Crew baubble necklace...



 ...but there's no way I'm forkin' over $150 for it!
The one on Ebay costs $15 {plus free shipping}.
Who knows what the quality will be like, but I'll keep you updated.

3. I keep pinning gorgeous flower arrangements on pinterest {spring fever, perhaps?}

4. I'm loving this crafty idea. As soon as exams are over, you can bet I'll be headed to the craft store...


These {confetti napkins} remind me of Kate Spade, dont'cha think? If I had these, I would set my table with them and invite my girlfriends over to drink lemonade on a summer afternoon.

5. SELF mag's Drop 10 Diet

Ever since SELF came out with their Drop 20 Diet, I've been drooling over all the yummy-looking meals. I signed up for the diet, but while I'm not following it exactly, I have had fun trying out their recipes!

A few days ago I tried the Honeyed Apple & Ricotta Wrap and oh baby! It was good.


Find the recipe {here}.

Some others I intend to try include
{Chicken and Quinoa Tossed Salad}{Savory Spaghetti}
{Qinoa-Edamame Salad with Sesame-Ginger Dressing}

Yum!

I'm headed to the beach this afternoon for a weekend in the sun. My skin is way too pale - this will be a much needed vacation.

Until next time, love to you all!

Love, Cait

  3. I've bought a few bubble necklaces off Ebay recently, and while they're not JCrew quality, for $15 they'll do just fine! Plus, they're lighter weight anyway- and who wants a 10 lb necklace hanging on all day? Enjoy it!

  6. Graduation is such a tough time. My girlfriends and I spent the final 2 weeks crying at our favorite bars. Buying bottles of (cheap) champagne and toasting to our time together. We went on an eating spree the final month so we could cram all of our favorite restaurants/dives in before we left our little bubble. Just remember to take LOTS of pictures and do all of your favorite things. As the day approaches, I promise you won't be the only girl spontaneously crying! Have a great weekend!

  12. That coin purse is adorable - I live close to a Coach outlet and I always have to talk myself out of getting really cheap, really sparkly wristlets!

    When you graduate you should definitely treat yourself to an awesome purchase as a reward.
