Friday Favorites | Happy May

Happy Friday lovelies!!! It's officially the start of a new month and who doesn't love a clean slate?! New England is cooperating with the new month and giving us temps in the 70's this weekend - so you'll find me outside for most of it!!! Linking up with Amanda and Liz for a few of my favorite things! 

Favorite Recipe

On Wednesday we made Emily's Cajun Grilled Shrimp Veggie Medley and it was delicious!! It was really filling without being heavy and I highly suggest trying it! 

Favorite Outfit

I could not love Oliva Palermo's look more!! She looks so put together and that skirt is just amazing!! Wearing my favorite spring trend with suede colored heels too! 

Favorite New Product Find


As a late twenty-something I have a hard time finding products that are directly aimed towards my age bracket - sure there is preventative, but nothing that is targeted at 20-somethings...at least not that I've found. I just found out about Origins "original skin" renewal serum and I'm so excited to try it because it's specifically targeted towards women transitioning from their 20s to 30s! I'm also a huge fan of Orgins products as a whole so I'm hopeful I'll love this too! 

Favorite Hair Style

I'm getting a much needed and long overdue haircut this weekend and I know myself enough to not even think I'll do anything drastic, but my layers need to start looking like layers...and I am even thinking of going back to a side swept bang! A few inspiration pictures above! Thoughts on a hairstyle?

  8. I have been checking the weather every day this week and I cannot wait!! I love that floral skirt it is so perfect for spring. And I really like the first hair style with the side sweeping bangs and long layers!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I love that spring outfit! It's so girly!
    I agree that layers are a must if you have long hair, they make it easier to style and they lighten things up a bit:)

    Have a great weekend!

  10. I love both brunette hairstyles, I wear my hair a lot like the Katie Holmes pictures but the layers on the pic on the right would look great on you too, and suits your length. I am looking forward to some Margaritas for Cinco de Mayo! Happy Friday!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Happy Friday! I can't believe it's May already. I think a side swept bang would look great on you - can't wait to see pics! And how amazing is a Margarita bar?! Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Olivia P can do no wrong! She's such a style inspiration! Have a great weekend!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yayyy for a hair appointment, those are the best days aren't they? I think you should totally rock Katie Holmes' look. That would look gorgeous on you ;-)

    Happy Friday gurlie <3

  14. Um sign me up for the pie milkshake, that sounds amazing. And I think you'd look lovely with a side swept bang!

  15. That milkshake, oh my gosh... Why do I have to see that before going to gym!!! Haha. Love Olivia's outfit, and I desperately need to get my hair done. I'll have to check out that eye cream and see if they have one for women in their 30s. :-) I hope that you have a nice day today and a fab weekend!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. That hairstyle is fab I feel like I can never get mine to look so carefully yet carelessly flowy! It would look great on you! I rock the side swept bangs and the only downside in the summer is the heat makes them a little tricky to manage but it is nothing a bobby pin or two cant fix :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. That skirt is precious! Thanks for sharing, and happy Friday!

    ReplyDelete
  18. love everything olivia p - of course! she can do no wrong. and i'm excited for your layers! they always add some extra bounce to any type of hair. happy friday dear! xo

  24. I love all the layers in those haircuts! It’d look so fresh for spring. Let me know your thoughts on the Origins product! I had it in my hand the other day, but didn’t leave with it. Excited to hear your thoughts!

    ReplyDelete

  26. A Kentucky Derby pie milkshake?! Say no more! And love the hair inspiration - can't wait to see how yours turns out! Happy Friday! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love that skirt that Olivia P is wearing - so perfect for spring weather. I think a side-swept bang would look great on you, but as a girl who's growing out bangs - don't go too short! They are a pain to get back to a manageable length. happy weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thank you for the margarita link - I'm hoping to have a few of those Tuesday! I can't wait to see your hair cut - I need one realllllly bad!

    ReplyDelete

  47. Happy Friday! Love the floral and jean look, and loving those hair styles! The bottom right is my favorite but my layers never come out that way :/ Winks and Eyerolls

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love the hairs. I need to get mine cut quite badly, as well. I always think I want bangs until I get them, then I remember what a pain they can be when they don't do what you want!

    ReplyDelete
  49. That recipe looks delicious! So does the milkshake.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I always love a jean shirt with a skirt!!!!
    So I have a funny hair story - got my hair done this week - the hair dresser FORGOT to cut my hair. I even mentioned it to her & said, You didn't cut my layers... she said, Yes I did. I WISH I looked at the floor to see if there was hair... but my layers are an inch below my chin &when I get them cut, they barely go behind my ears. How funny is that?!?!?! I may have a new look now.

    ReplyDelete
  51. You should totally do that to your hair! Layers are beautiful and work on anyone! Can't wait to see what you decide on. Olivia can do no wrong. (; Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Seriously? I don't even like milkshakes and that looks amazing.

    Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I've been all about shrimp recipes lately-that one looks so good! That milkshake is calling my name! Haha. Have a great weekend, Biana! :)

  58. It's been so long since I've read your blog! I am so happy to be back at blogging, but I definitely needed that little (big) break. that recipe looks so good! I definitely need to pin it for later use. A and I are always looking for healthy meals to make. I am so happy the weather is finally going to be nice again! I am so sick of the cold. Have a great weekend and good luck with your haircut :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Ok, you would look ahhhhmazing with side swept bangs and long layers! Love Katie Holmes' hair! Olivia Palermo just needs to swap closets with me and I'd be a happy camper. Definitely going to check out That Origins stuff... or is it too late now that I'm 30?!? ;) Happy Friday!

  67. A pie milkshake??? Yum! I pinned that shrimp recipe...I totally want to start making shrimp at home for Chris. He loves it and I have never made it myself. I love all those hair options. I go back and forth about every other hair cut on side swoops. My hair is just too thin for it but I love it on other people. Have a great weekend!

  72. Your hair inspiration board already is on my Hair board on Pinterest! I'm so in love with all the styles - you TOTALLY could rock some Katie Holmes bangs/layers. Olivia Palermo is such a style guru - I wish I could raid her closet. Have a wonderful weekend, girl!

  78. Ohh I love Olivia's floral and chambray look-- though she looks amazing in just about anything! I'm actually currently using a toner from Origins that I think is more geared towards older women, but when I was looking at their different options it was the one that appealed to me the most. I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on the serum! I can't wait to see your hair cut! The first and fourth pictures are my favorite, but I'm convinced you could pull off anything with your hair! It's always so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I am definitely trying that shrimp and veggie dish! YUM! Olivia Palermo totally sold me on the Milly collab too. LOVE that skirt.
