friday five.

Happy Friday! I'm linking up with Christina, April, Natasha, Darci today here's five things on my mind:
ONE: Talk about a dream collaboration -- Bauble Bar is selling  Capri Blue signature candles! I've raved about them before and they are still my favorite. Capri Blue Volcano is the perfect blend of tropical fruits, sugared oranges, lemons, and limes and my go-to candle for spring and summer. Take advantage of your vault points + free shipping and stock up -- large jar ($32) and travel tin ($16).
TWO: Have you guys heard of the Baby Foot Peel? It's supposed to be a super effective treatment to remove calluses and dry/dead skin from your feet (just in time for sandal weather!). After reading Grace's review I really want to try it. 
THREE: These cartoons made me laugh a lot. I can totalllly relate to the agony of dropping your iPhone while you're nursing or being all scratched up by babies super sharp nails... good thing babies are so cute ;)
FOUR: I'm mailing out our baby announcements from Minted today! After spending a crazy amount of time browsing through different options, I went with the uptown introduction design. I'm always happy with the quality of Minted projects and their baby announcements did not disappoint. They are beautiful! I absolutely recommend taking advantage of their free recipient addressing...bc no one has time to write out addresses!
FIVE: Don't forget to enter the HALO SleepSack Swaddle giveaway!

Have a great weekend!

  1. yes i've heard of the baby foot peel. i've mentioned them on the blog a few times. it really works but it's gross and you have to really moisturize to keep those soft feet. it takes a while for the dead skin to come off, so i would do it 2 weeks ahead of an event, for example.

  4. Recipient addressing is FREE?! I always thought that people must shell out an option to have Minted take care of that for them. Good. To Know.
    Happy weekend!

  5. I used Baby Foot last Spring, it's really crazy. It definitely works too. I just recommend using it when you know you won't be wearing sandals for a couple weeks, otherwise you'll just shed everywhere you go.

  14. I actually did the foot peel on Sunday!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let me just say, on Tuesday, I told my husband this ish is junk...it doesn't work and I am irritated I spent the $30 on it. Well I woke up yesterday and bam MY FEET ARE TOTALLY DISGUSTINGLY AMAZINGLY PEELING! Like it's so gross, but so amazing at the same time. haha. I cannot wait for it to be done peeling to see the end result. I have been told spas and such cannot keep the stuff on the shelves it's become that popular.

  17. I've wondered about foot peels and also those crazy detox things you put on your feet and they soak up all the "toxins" so they claim ha. Love those cartoons. Men could never pull it off and do that kind of multi-tasking I swear! See you soon love!

  18. I can SO relate to the nursing cartoon.. feels like my life! When your phone is juuuust out of reach, but you don't want to wake the sleeping babe. I have definitely tried some inventive things!
