Friday Fives... Belated

Hey friends! 

Okay, so I know it's Saturday, not Friday... but I didn't get around to writing this yesterday. Forgive me, and here are my Saturday Fives :)

1. I hope everyone had a fab Fourth of July!

My family had a pool day, then we hopped in the car to see the new Spiderman movie {Pssst, it was amazing!}. Afterwards, we had a cookout and homemade sweet potato fries. This year I also made my first attempt at an American flag pizza, and was extremely pleased with the result. 


Not only was it tasty {perfect for a sweltering southern evening}, but it was also extremely easy to make and healthier than your typical fruit pizza. See the white icing? Well, it's not icing at all... it's actually {Yoplait coconut Greek yogurt}. I swear, it tasted better than any sugary topping you could have put on it!

Find the recipe {here}.

I also painted my nails for the occasion and threw on a little glitter polish for the "fireworks" effect.


We finished the night by watching fireworks at a nearby country club. Perfect fourth!

2. Meet my new favorite tea


{Get gorgeous tea} is an herb tea specially formulated for clear skin. This tea is packed with antioxidants, herbs, and a secret ingredient: rooibos, known for its complexion-calming powers. On top of all the benefits, it tastes delicious! I love sipping on hot tea if I'm doing work or during the mid-morning lull. 


I found mine at World Market, but it's also available on {amazon}.

3. I've become obsessed with chic headwraps.




They're perfect for summer since they keep long hair out of your face and eyes.

I found my own version at CVS for a couple dollars.


The hair ties are from Target... they also make cute bracelets!

4. My new goodies arrived today from Apothica!!


I have been waiting patiently the past couple of days for this package to come in the mail. {Apothica} is my newest sponsor! I got to pick out some products off their website and can't wait to test them out. Their site has easily become one of my favorites - they sell so many top beauty brands and constantly have sales. 
Stay tuned this week for a review post AND giveaway!

5. Guess what tomorrow is? 


My 22nd birthday!

I'm so thankful to have wonderful family and friends to celebrate with. I can't wait! I'll save the details for the recap post :)

Happy weekend to you all.
Love, Cait
