Finally, I’ve crawled through the week and arrived at Friday (it felt like this week lasted a month, y’all).  Before we go another further, please enjoy a cocktail with me:

Spiked Blackberry Lemonade from Be Mixed

This spiked blackberry lemonade is pretty darned yummy; I’ve made this my drink of choice over the last few weeks using cocktail mixers from Be Mixed.  They were kind enough to send us some of their mixers to try in December and we both really enjoyed them.  They’re sugar free, preservative free, zero calories, and gluten free, so Amy can drink them (winning!).  They also have dozens of recipes to try over on their website; my goal this summer might just be to try all of them.

Here are a few other things that have caught my eye this week (during that thirty second period between when I crawl into bed and crash into unconsciousness!)

These monogrammed plates:  how darling would they be on your (my!!) spring table?

This outfit; the twist back sweater is so flattering and coral pink works on most skin and hair colors.

Sweater (30% off)

Pair it with these white jeans (also 30% off) that are the perfect length uncuffed, or roll them twice for capri-length.  If you’re going out, then add a bit of whimsy with white pom pom earrings:

Don’t forget a colorful clutch!  This is one of my favorites for spring and summer; the tassels are a cheerful touch that makes it go with literally everything.

I always share these Tory Burch Miller flip-flops because I am now on my second pair (I wore the first ones out after four seasons of hard, almost every day use). If you splurge on one item per season, in my opinion this is it:

Tory Burch Miller Sandals in Vintage Vachetta

These pretty much never go on sale and are usually excluded from coupons and promotions, but I found them at a discount for you all!  Bloomingdale’s is having a “private” sale where you get $25 off every $100 you spend. You can use the code PRIVATE to purchase the Miller sandal (they have a great selection of colors), you just need to add a small item to your cart {like this mug, or grab a mother’s day gift like a bath bomb} to get you to the $200 mark, then you will get $50 off, with free shipping. That’s a great price for these shoes! Also, sometimes you can find a used pair in decent condition on eBay or Poshmark and they run true to size.

Last but not least, my reading choices have changed dramatically over the past few years.  I have zero free time and have a very hard time concentrating on books, which is probably just a function of the age/stage of life I’m in.  I used to sit down and read books that I would describe as “literature,” with plenty of non-fiction and politics thrown in there.  Now, I’m all about easy fiction reading during the five minutes a day that I’m not running around or working, so the Ten Beach Road series is on my summer reading list (have any of you read it?).

I also loved the Outlander book series and managed to read all of those over the past few years, but I haven’t followed the TV series since season 3 (no time to sit and watch TV!).  If you have any book suggestions for people who are attention-span impaired, I’d love to hear them!

That’s it for today’s Friday Favorite Finds.  I hope you enjoy your cocktail, and your weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!
