Friday Five August 11

Super short week for me... Got back Monday night and as you're reading this I will be in Canada! It's my first time and I'm pretty excited to explore and see what the city has to offer. Pray for good weather!

ONE / Bachelor Podcast
Guys!! I started a podcast!! My friend Hali and I are talking about all things Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor In Paradise. You can find us on SoundCloud here or on your Podcast app (search First Names Only). I would LOVE if you would subscribe, listen and let me know what you think!!

TWO / Casey Neistat
I watched one video off of a friends recommendation and now I'm totally obsessed. It's not often I get excited to see someones video everyday (seriously, everyday) but Casey does it. His videos are SO good. I promise you'll get hooked too!

THREE / Toronto
Caitlin and I are off to Toronto for the weekend! We have no plans other than to go and have a really fun time. SO if you have any suggestions on what to do/eat/see/try you MUST leave me suggestions down below! We're staying downtown at Trump International Hotel!
*not that I NEED to say this, but just because I stay at a hotel does NOT mean I support or don't support a political candidate. It's a nice hotel, we are working with them and it's going to be fun. 

FOUR / What I'm Packing
To be honest I *thought* it was going to be a little cooler than it will be. Its just SO HOT all the time I can't deal with it. I picked up this sleeveless sweater from J. Crew yesterday and it is SO nice for the price point. Also packed this Free People top -- totally different than what I normally wear but I think I really like it :) And finally I bought matching phone cases for Caitlin and I (hopefully she won't read this until I see her)!

FIVE / SweetSpot Wipes
Did I mention it was H-O-T outside? Since I ride my bike to work and walk around outside so much I constantly feel SO gross. Well I was recently introduced to these sweetspot wipes and I LOVE them. It's like a refresher in a package and its perfect for the sweaty mess I become from being outside. You can get them from Target but I seriously suggest you try them out!


  1. Have a blast in Canada!
