Friday Five: On My Mind

Happy Friday. I can honestly say that this week has seemed like an incredibly long week, but here’s a cheer for long weekends.

Here are the top five things that have been on my mind this week. 

Zara: Zara is quickly becoming one of my new favorite spots for fashion forward trends. Their designs mirror the latest runway styles but the prices are incredibly accessible. If Princess Letizia of Spain and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge can wear Zara, the casual, yet elegant collections make an excellent choice for anyone. Here are some pretties that I found in stores this week.

Excedrin Migraine: Lately, I’ve been getting horrible headaches that really are starting to put a damper on my life. Sometimes the headaches are so bad that they make me physically ill. The only thing that I’ve found that gives me a little bit of relief is Excedrin Migraine. I should probably see a doctor, but I loathe going to the doctor’s office.

Clinique GWP: Pretty gifts with purchase get me every time. In the past few years, Clinique has partnered with some designers known for their pretty prints including Trina Turk and Tracy Reese.  This year's gift with purchase is available at Nordstrom.  The $75 value bonus includes everything you'll need to be beautiful this spring!

Revenge: The season finale of Revenge was probably the best finale I can remember. There were so many twists and turns and so many unanswered questions. It’s going to be a long summer! The biggest question on my mind is about Emily/Amanda’s mother. What actress is going to play the role of her mother? I have a feeling that Emily’s mother isn’t a sweet and caring person like her father was; she will probably be a new villainess. The only thing that is definite is that there’s no way that Jack is fake-Amanda’s baby daddy.

Pretty Umbrellas: It’s rained every day this week; luckily today we won’t have any rain and the weekend is supposed to be sunny and warm. A pretty umbrella brightens any rainy day.  This week, I've been loving the newest Lilly Pulitzer umbrella in the Chum Bucket print.



  1. My friend has horrible migraines/headaches. She just started acupuncture treatment and so far, so good.

    I agree with you on Revenge. But I think Nolan's mom is Emily's mom making them, clearly, brother and sister. I think that's why he's been overly emotional lately and sticking his own neck out more often to protect Emily. I agree, Jack is NOT that baby's father. No way, no how.

    We have LOADS of umbrellas at our house. Whoever named Florida the sunshine state was clearly, off their rocker!

    Happy Friday Bethany!

  2. My dad gets acupuncture for his as well - it's one of the only things that works.

    But, too many things can be associated with it so if it keeps getting worse...

    LOVE the umbrellas [and the speakers] :)

  3. OHHHHH Revenge! BEST new show of the season, hands down in my opinion. I loved every minute. As for Jack...OH Lordy, he just can't be the Daddy!

    Lilly umbrellas make me smile too!

    Love and Hugs,
    Mrs. Kindergarten...aka...Madame Spoiled

  4. I have had migraines since I hit puberty, and have been to a neurologist, regular gp, etc. The only effective management for me is excedrin migraine and diet pepsi, in combination. I've had friends who've sworn by acupuncture, though. I also find that a shower with alternating temperatures helps. Good luck!

  5. Bethany - I am so sorry to hear of your migraines :(.
    Love Zara too .. and of course anything Lilly, including the umbrellas! xo

  6. Okay, in the GWP, wasn't the 'All About Eyes' the BEST THING EVER?? It feels so nice and cool...better than cold cucumbers. It's my new favorite skin care item. I was so enamored I even made my husband try it (hee-hee)

  7. Where are you finding Excedrin? It has been recalled and hasn't been on the shelves since Jan.? I just looked it up yesterday and it won't be back in stock until late this summer. If you still have a supply... you are lucky... it is the best treatment for severe headaches. You might have to send me some!!
