5 Things Friday

Oh, what a long and stressful week it has been. I’m so happy to finally relax a bit. Here are my five things of the week:


I’ve had the nastiest sweet tooth lately. Seriously. I’ve never been too huge on sweets, I would rarely crave them. Now, I need them all the time. Recently the Boyf and I discovered a Neveux within a short walk from the house. Not only do they have crazy, unique flavors like Basil Olive Oil and Pepper Peach, but they have some of the best knock-you-in-your-face coffee around. If I ever need a boost that a simple cup of coffee won’t fix, I head straight to Neveux. My absolute favorite is the Salted Caramel affogatto. The flavors blend perfectly.


This little guy. Earlier this week I was sitting on the Annenberg patio and someone sat down for a meeting right next to me with this sweet little pug. I’m not a massive fan of dogs (I’ve always been more of a cat person) but I had to get out of my seat and put him. His person said his name was Hugo and is super friendly.

5 Things I’m Loving This Week

Following in the footsteps of many other bloggers, I decided to make a quick ‘5 Things’ post. It’s also to remind myself of the simple pleasures that keep me smiling throughout the week. Here are 5 things I’m totally into right now:


I added a new Fortune Cookie Soap to my soap dish. I absolutely love this company, obsessed is more like it. Their scents are completely unique and they’re constantly releasing fun new collections. The owners are completely engaged with their followers on social media and I love the feeling of actually being connected to the company.

This cookie is from their fall collection. It’s called Leeeaaf Piiiile! and it smells like apple and acorns. I’ve never been fantastic at being able to differentiate scents, but it smells so fresh and lovely. I can’t wait to get the matching body butter.


Oh, the darling little campus squirrels. I’m fortunate to go to a school with a consistently green and leafy campus. On my way to class I generally see about 7-8 squirrels. I know, I know, it’s just a squirrel, but they’re so adorable. I clearly didn’t see enough wildlife in my childhood because I want to feed them snacks and run after them with open arms. This little guy was hanging out on that tree and squeaking at me so I snapped his photo.
