Five on Friday!

Friday posts are my favorite.  I love linking up with Carolina Charm and ALizadventures.  And special congratulations to both of them, they are both now Mommies to beautiful baby girls!  Lets get into it...


{one} Coffee:  I've always said that Starbucks is my Breakfast at Tiffany's.  I love the feeling, but my wallet doesn't.  So when I can make an amazing drink at home, that tastes as good... I am pumped!  So, have you started to use cold brew yet?  Its basically concentrated coffee that is made by soaking coffee beans in water.  Its perfect for an ice coffee to get your day started.  Lately I've been taking a 16 oz glass and filling to the brim with ice.  I then fill up 1/3 of the glass with the cold brew, filling the rest with vanilla soy milk and topping it off with thin mint creamer.  Ah, its so good and gives me the kick I need.


{two} Go Ginza:  This Essie color is my absolute favorite nail polish right now.  It is the perfect lilac.  When I get my summer tan, its going to look even better!


{three} St Tropez DARK bronzing mousse:  Pop over here to see my review on the original St. Tropez bronzing mousse.  I love that product, but I want to be extra tan for my summer in Texas, so this time around I opted to purchase the Dark version of this product.  I haven't used it yet, but I'll be testing it out this weekend and sharing the review next week.


{four} May Sponsors:  Yesterday, I gave away four spots on tattered to taylored for free sponsorships.  And the lucky girls are:  Carly Blogs Here, To Travel and Beyond, One Eighty, and BLovedBoston.  Look out for an email from me today!


{five} Copper:  I went a little copper crazy in my kitchen this week.  What can I say I love the color a penny.  If you missed my loft kitchen tour, go check it out!

I hope you all have a great weekend where ever you are!

I must find that polish, and that coffee drink looks amazing! Enjoy your weekend :)

Christi said...

I am going to have to check out that tanning stuff. I normally wait until my pool is open, slap on some SPF 5 - 15 and bake... This seems to be a healthier alternative.

Kristen said...

oh my lord.

Carly Blogs Here said...

Yay! I am so excited to be featured on your blog this next month! I have to know-- what is that cold brew coffee concentrate?? I LOVE making iced coffee but I get so impatient waiting for it to cool down enough!

I am loving that lilac Essie color. It is now on my shopping list. Loving the copper accents and I can;t wait to try out St. Tropez tanning mousse.

Kelli @ A Deeper Joy said...

That coffee drinks looks delicious! And I love that Essie color. I just bought three and I need to try them before I buy others! Haha. Have a great weekend, Taylor!

Elizabeth Dietz said...

That iced coffee drink sounds DELICIOUS! I recently read an article that made me realize how much money I was wasting on coffee every year so yesterday was my first attempt at making iced coffee at home to bring to work... I may have to invest in the supplies to make yours because well it just sounds so delicious!

Les said...

Okay so I'm glad that you wrote something about self tanner... I've been wanting to try some new ones, and I think I'll have to give the St. Tropez a try! Also- I totally need to buy some cold brew coffee. I'm going to work on that over the weekend. :)

Have a fabulous weekend!

Brittany @ Perpetually Daydreaming said...

Love the lilac nails! I've been looking for the right light purple color. I might have to try that one out! Have a great weekend!

Abby said...

I've been loving lilac nails lately too! I can't wait to hear what you think of the dark version of the St. Tropez mousse because I love the original but if I can get even more color I will be thrilled! :)
Have an awesome weekend Taylor!

xo Always, Abby

I love the copper, it's beautiful with the brick wall.

Lisa Loves John said...

LOVEEE that Essie color!! It's summery, but not too bold that when it chips it will look terrible!

Marshall said...

I love copper in a kitchen. It's timeless. Can't wait to hear how the dark bronzing mouse looks. I'm currently using the St. Tropez face tanner and I love it!
