Five on Friday

Does this really need an introduction!? I mean it's Friday and it's almost the weekend!! I'm pretty sure if I tried that little dance bit in our elevators - security would have a field day with the video!!

Here are five things I found interesting/exciting this week!

One//

Have y'all heard of oil pulling? Well apparently it's quickly gaining popularity and Erica at Fashion Lush went into great detail about her routine! Check it out here

Two//

I know a lot of people put "read more" as one of their goals for the year - Enter Spritz!! This company is basically revolutionizing the way we are going to read...or at least they hope!! I'm still not 100% sure how this really works, but this article explains it in further detail - and you even get a tutorial! 
Suddenly reading this...
wont turn into this...

Three//

Per the suggestion of so many people that either live in or have visited Charleston, I booked a carriage tour for us!!
Other things getting me super excited about our trip - The Bravo show Southern Charm.
While they may not be showcasing the true testament of what people in Charleston are like - I have enjoyed seeing different parts of the city!! 

Four//

One thing I love most about being part of the Bridal Party...getting my hair done!! Here's where you guys come in...I'm decided between these two looks. Any advice?
Looks similar but the left has it braided into the hair. 

Five//

I'm not sure at what point household items became more exciting for me to purchase than things for myself - but we are seriously contemplating this Dyson heater/fan! A little pricey on their actual website - but with overstock and amazon we can definitely find a great deal!! 


I'm also looking forward to a purchase that keeps on giving for at least 2+ weeks…I can feel the relaxation upon me!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! 

xo,
Biana

  6. I am so going to try out the oil pulling. My mom and her friend were talking about it and I'm glad you posted the link to her website because now it all makes a little more sense to me. I think I'm going to start tomorrow! :)

  10. I like the hair on the right! But they are both really beautiful, you can't go wrong! Also I really want to try the app, I wonder if you really do get the same amount of information from a book! I always find myself having to re-read pages and having to go back in case I missed something! Happy Friday :)

  11. Those two hairdos are awesome! I cant wait to see which one you choose! I am getting my nails done this weekend, too. Pampering is the best! Have a great weekend! Pam

  13. Yay Friday!! :) I've never heard of pulling, I'm totally checking that out later today! I'm so excited to see pictures from your trip to Charleston, you're going to have such an amazing time! I totally just found out that Cameran from Southern Charm (I've never actually watched the show but I saw the previews) was on Real World! Crazy! I LOVE the hairdo on the right. Both are gorgeous but I really feel like you have the hair to pull of the one on the right and not every one could pull it off! Just my suggestion! Have an amazing weekend!

  15. I've seen stuff about oil pulling several different places this week. I think I'm going to try it!

  16. I love both of those hairstyles but think I prefer the one on the right a little bit more! I had seen that little oil pulling graphic but had never taken the time to look into it and it sounds interesting...I have a hard time using mouth wash without accidentally swallowing it so I'm not sure I could handle a mouth full of coconut oil for 20 minutes?! Have you tried it?

    Have such a great time in Charleston! I'm excited to hear about your trip!

  21. NO chance I can swirl coconut oil in my mouth for that long without gagging.Charleston is the best place EVER....I can't remember the 2 places that I ate at and almost cried it was so good, but I'll do some research and shoot you an email!

  22. I vote the hair on the right - I love the romantic feel of it! And great graphic at the beginning, as always!

  23. Okay I was reading about that oil pulling and I really want to know if that works....have you tried it? I don't know if I can put a spoonful of oil in my mouth and "swish it around"....I think I would gag....hmmmm I am intrigued though. I vote for the braid! I'm so excited for you to visit Charleston you are going to have to give me a full report! xoxoxo

  24. I love the hairstyle on the left! I prefer braids to be built into the hairstyle rather than having a little braid on top - I think it looks more chic. I also am fascinated by this whole oil-pulling deal - are you going to give it a shot? I'm still contemplating.

    Have a great weekend!

  28. I've been hearing SO MUCH about oil pulling lately! I read a bunch about it a few months ago, and gave it a try once, but wow has it gained popularity!! So funny that you posted about the reading app - it was in my lust list until I saw your post. Ha! Great minds?!
    Have a great weekend!! Oh, and I like the 2nd hairstyle (not braided down).

  30. I'm so happy you are planning a trip to Charleston too (and going before us) so I can just steal all of your plans haha! Taking note of the carriage ride idea! And I like both hairstyles but I think #2 is my fave! Have a good weekend :)

  31. I am intrigued/scared when it comes to oil pulling. Eek! I think the hair on the left looks like it might hold up better on the dance floor. I'm delighted to come across/start following your blog from Kentucky Blonde-- my husband and I are moving to Boston this summer for my job! Hope to hear about some of your favorite activities and restaurants! :)

  32. I heard about that oil pulling stuff, but I don't know. It sounds a little gross! I can't wait to hear about your trip to Charleston! And I like the hairstyle on the right! A little more relaxed and romantic I think :) Hope you're having a great weekend girl!

  33. Wow loving both those hairstyles but I think the one on the right is my fave. You would rock them both! And those dyson fans are fantastic. Splurge...and while you're at it get the dyson hand vac. We use ours literally every day and it's awesome. (Seriously you're right, when did we start getting so excited for household items????) =)

  34. Love the hairstyle on the left! - my mom got that fan for christmas last year and loves it! The dogs, on the other hand, do not ;)
