Five on Friday +1: Current Wish List and Some Randoms

Happy Friday everyone! I thought I would share a few things on my current wish list as well as some things I have been loving lately. It's basically just a mash-up of randoms! :) I hope you have a great day... let's jump right in!

As always I'm linking up with AprilNatashaChristinaKarliErikaNarci, and Andrea.  

One- Cute and Comfy

Anyone that knows me probably knows about my weird dislike of jeans and "workout" shoes worn together lol. I think athletic shoes should go with athletic wear. I will only wear my converse with jeans (if I want a more athletic shoe). I don't know why it annoys me so much but it's right up there with socks and those velcro-strap sandals. YUCK! lol Well, I am slowly starting to warm up to the idea of athletic shoes with jeans and these New Balance shoes are the perfect transition for me. I love the pistachio color and think they would look cute with jeans and a t-shirt.  Plus they are under $50!

Two- More Macarons please!

I have had this weird obsession with macarons since we went to Washington D.C. I don't know what it is but I just LOVE them and want to learn to make them so bad. I've looked into different kits but never pulled the trigger and got one. I think this one would be great because it has the silicone mat to help you make the circular shape, which is something I will need help with lol. Plus it's only $40, which is great!

Three- To buy or not to buy??

I've debated about getting these Hunter boots forever but I didn't know if I could justify the price. Maybe this is the year since El Nino is upon us! We've already had a ton of rain and these would definitely come in handy. Does anyone have the Hunter green ones?? I love this color green but I also don't want them to be too bright. Maybe the black would be better??

Update: My friend Joy just told me Costco has these boots for a lot cheaper. I just looked and they are still in stock for only $80!! The only problem is that they are in size 5 :( boo! Hopefully the will have some in store.

Four- The Perfect Gloss

I got this Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Show Off  last weekend and I'm obsessed with the color! It's the perfect peach. I also love that it's sticky (so it stays put) without being too tacky and annoying. I've had a couple other colors in this line but this is my new fave!

Five-  Book Lovin'

I just finished the Secrets of a Charmed Life and HOLY MOLY it was so good! I couldn't stop reading it! It's about two sisters during the London Blitz in World War II. You've probably noticed a theme with the books I like... historical fiction is high on my list! Go out and get this book asap, it's that good! I am thinking about doing a book over-review on it next week. Let me know if you want to see one!

Six- True Friends

I've been thinking about this quote a lot lately. I'm so thankful to have people in my life who know my struggles and stand by me through them. It's a lot easier to be someone's friend through the easy times, but a true friend is there through all the tears.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!


  1. Those New Balance shoes are super cute! I have the black hunter boots and love them! I would like to own more brighter colors but realistically black goes with just about everything, although I'm really considering the red. ha! Have a good weekend!

  2. I so want some Hunter Boots! I also want a lot of other things and I have no idea how to prioritize my life right now! Ha!
