Five on Friday

Who has two thumbs and is excited it's Friday, this girl! Now for my five...

one.
I'm in love with this kitchen! Clean white cabinets + stainless steel appliances = love! This kitchen is ready for any pop of color and my cooking! For more kitchen inspiration check out my pinterest board here or Houzz ideabook here.

two.
Chai lattes at home! I've never tried a powdered chai mix before and decided on a whim at the store to give it a go. Best recent impulse buy. Two things it's not dairy free and it's better with almond milk than water. I picked up the Oregon Chai in the organic section at our local Raley's, but you can order it online here.



three.
Health, fitness and green smoothies! I'm looking forward to Candice Kumai's new cookbook, Clean Green Drinks: 100+ Cleansing Recipes to Renew & Restore Your Body and Mind. Release date is set for April 22, but you can pre order it today! I love and cook regularly from her two other cookbooks  Cook Yourself Sexy  and  Pretty Delicious

four.
Summer + sandals! Yes, I know it's only March, but Norstrom has my number. Every email lately is all about sandals I just can't help myself. Last weekend I purchased these form Target. I love the new sandals TOMS added to their line this year, but I'm especially loving these mixed rope strappy wedges and may have to add them to my birthday wishlist.


five.
Wanderlust. I'm in serious need of a vacation. Yes, we were in Mexico back in November but it's just time to escape again. Sadly we might give up Europe in the fall for a new kitchen. Fingers crossed we can make both work. Kitchen and travel sponsors welcomed :)

Zakynthos Island, Greece


Linking up with Liz and company!

  1. I would LOVE a new kitchen, but we are planning to move in the next year... so, I can wait. :) I just blogged about a low calorie green smoothie on my blog and it is delicious! I love smoothies! I need to book our vacation soon, I would love to go to Greece! We were just in Europe to see Paris a year ago! Loved!

  3. LOVE that kitchen and the TOMS! I am so with you - I want to travel so badly, but my desire for a beautiful home trumps that. Holidays are magical, but so fleeting. House and home are forever (or at least a while). <3
