back again with this week’s friday five!

best clothing buy

universal thread military jacket //

if you caught this week’s fitting room diaries, then you are LOVING the universal thread line at target.  if you’re not loving it, you must not have seen it yet bc its THAT good!

i love the cropped silhouette of this jacket with its extra military details.  this is a jacket that you can throw over any outfit – from a t-shirt and jeans for saturday morning’s soccer practice to a cami, jeans and heels for date night to a maxi dress or jumpsuit and flat sandals for a gals’ brunch!

for its under $30 price tag, you just need to go ahead and get this jacket already!  i’m wearing an XS in the pictures above.

best beauty buy

monat dry shampoo //

yes, i have been using this dry shampoo for over 6 months now after being a loyal suave dry shampoo gal and i’m never going back!  i ran out this week and you would have thought the world was ending when i realized i was out!  this stuff is so good, doesn’t leave that nasty residue, smells great and i no longer get those breakouts around my hairline from dry shampoo build-up and follicle blockage.

yes, its a bit pricier than the suave, but i’m a strong believer in “you get what you pay for” and it holds very true here as well!

if you’ve never heard of monat, read all about it here!

year of yes – shonda rimes //


i was in DC for a stella & dot training last weekend and all of my stella sisters were raving about this book!  a few of them pulled it out of their purses to show it off bc its THAT good!

one quote they shared totally sealed the deal for me and it is currently on its way to my doorstep as we speak:

“I think a lot of people dream. And while they are busy dreaming, the really happy people, the really successful people, the really interesting, engaged, powerful people, are busy doing.”
– Shonda Rimes

… go ‘head Shonda!

fave meal

mediterranean grilled chicken with dill greek yogurt sauce //

there are a few recipes i have on repeat in our house and this is definitely one of them!  i am OBSESSED with greek food – one of our fave local spots is The Black Olive – its a byob too!  we go about once a month and order pretty much every appetizer on their menu so we can taste ALL the things!  once i found this recipe, i couldn’t wait to try it out and i’ve been making it constantly ever since!  it takes a little prep but the chicken is SO flavorful and the yogurt sauce is BOMB.  i love to serve these potatoes with it as well.  say hello to your new thursday night dinner!
