Welcome to week 4 of The Friday Five! I swear the past week flew by.
In all honesty- this weeks list of favorite things is a mix of things I have been loving and ones I haven’t tried yet. You see- I was a bit under the weather this week and what does one do when they are home, sick and not doing a whole lot of anything? SHOP. Let’s get into it!
Lemon Body Cream: C.O Bigelow
I have been on the search for the right body lotion/butter for a while now. I have a long list of requirements so finding the right one- was a process. I love this one because:
- It’s a lotion that acts like a butter without being too runny or heavy- moisturizing without being greasy. SCORE!
- The scent is light enough that is doesn’t give me a headache- I am VERY sensitive to scents. Lemon is fresh without being overpowering.

Green Onyx Ring
Over the past few months I have found myself gravitating towards the color green so many times. When paired with gold it is an absolute win. I’ve been on the lookout for the right green statement ring and I am thankful I checked Etsy. I found a small business in India who specializes in bold yet simple rings. I ordered my true size 8 and I must admit- I wish I had gone down a 1/4 or 1/2 size for a better fit. The ring arrived today and I have not stopped admiring it since. I also ordered lucite and black onyx. Linked here.
Cat Eye Sunnies
On instagram, I recently wore a pair of sunnies I have had for years. A tortoise shell, fold framed, cat eye sunnies and my friends loved them. The retro yet chic look is classic enough for everyday while still making a statement. I have had them since January 2020 which makes them an absolute steal as an Amazon find. Linked here.
I must admit- this dress is on its way but I haven’t actually tried it yet. The tennis skirt/ dress trend is big this season and I am so here for it. I love this simple dress that can be worn both casually and for play. Pair with the white sneakers I’ll share next or a flip flop all Spring and Summer long. I ordered a large due to the built in bra. Linked here.
White sneaker will always be a staple in my wardrobe. The cleaner/ whiter- the better. I often opt for lightweight canvas sneaks but decided to change things up with a pair of these. I am shocked how much I actually like them. The hole like detail gives just enough texture without being too much detail. The fit is decent too. I was surprised when my TTS 8s fit a little bigger than usually. The show runs a little wide but can easily be tightened with lacing. Linked here.
