Friday Five – Take Ten

Friday Five Take Ten

Making plans and enjoying this gorgeous weather we’ve been having in this week’s Friday Five!

If you follow me on Instagram (@yellowdogpress) you’ll already know I got a new planner. My Kikki K A5 combined with the A5 Day Designer pages are awesome.  I love having the pockets and a more durable system to throw in my bag when I need to take my planner with me.

Speaking of planners, I’ve been making plans and love having a goal set.

The weather here in Jersey has been amazing all week and thanks to that Stella and I have been enjoying the sunshine and the bike path.

I’ve had a pretty productive week checking things off my to-do list.

We went out to lunch on Sunday and when I was getting ready I spotted a oldie but goodie pair of pink kicks in my closet that I haven’t worn in over a year.  I’ve had them since college and still love them so much.  Anyone else have a pair of Kangaroos with the cool little pocket?

I’d love to hear the positive from your week.  Share them using #FridayFivewithBecka

Five Things I'm Loving March

I’ve been on the dark jeans wagon for awhile.  I was recently browsing Loft online and saw these jeans on super sale (I think they’re still on sale too!) and thought they’d be a cute match for my tan booties now and with flats and flip flops in the spring and summer.  I love the fit and they look great with a little cuff and my booties.  I’m counting down the days until I can pair them with my favorite flip flops.


I know, I know!  I’m so late to the Gilmore Girls party!  Thanks to Netflix I’ve been binging the series.  I love life in little Stars Hollow (even though I still can’t figure out why the streets are always wet) and I just want Lorelai and Luke to get together!  Please, no spoilers!


If you follow me on Instagram you already know my love for these cute little stamps.  I have been envious of other planner girls and their sticker game but I don’t love the stickers in a planner for myself.  I’m a clean space kinda girl.  I first spotted the jar of planner stamps at Michael’s and love them.  Then I saw these emoji ones and fell even deeper in love.  I’ve been using them to document how my day has gone in my planner with a little note.  They’re only available in store and come in a cute little jar.  Go grab them before they’re gone! (photo cred to @createoften)


I love elf products because while they’re super affordable they’re also decent quality.  I was recently grabbing a new mascara in CVS and spotted their elf display.  I grabbed this matte lip color in Berry Sorbet and love it.  It applies easily with the crayon type tip and the color lasts.  For under $5 I’ll definitely be purchasing other colors.


I’ve been a gel manicure junkie for the last few years.  They were an indulgence and a treat.  And an expensive one too that never lasted the fourteen days they say they would.  I’m hard on my nails.  So, I researched and decided to invest in my own gel nail light and some polishes.  While my manicure doesn’t last as long as the professional one, it is significantly less money and I’ve gotten pretty good at painting my own nails.

What are you loving for March?

Friday Five – Take Eight

Friday Five Take Eight

I’m back with another Friday Five.  I missed it last week.  Truth – sometimes you just can’t muster up five positive things that were worthy of posting after a tough week.  I’ve regrouped.  I have a plan and I went to Target this week so, things are looking up!

Yes, me going to Target is worthy of a Friday Five.  When the closest one is about forty minutes away walking the aisles of Target is a true treat.  I had an early appointment just down the road from Target and took advantage of the morning to myself.  It was the perfect therapy for that moment.

Sunday was Hubs’ birthday.  As a joke I bought him Homer Simpson slippers like he had when he was a kid.  I’ve never seen him so excited over a gift before.  I really wish I would have recorded his reaction when he opened the box.  Love how something so simple made him so happy.

Thanks to my girl, Sarah, I got a fresh cut and color this week.  That always makes you feel good.

Got my The Happy Planner punch in the mail.  Love that I can customize the planner even more than already possible with my own inserts and covers now that I have a punch meant for the planner.

Looking back I’ve had a pretty productive week.  Crossing things off my to-do list always makes me feel good.

How was your week?  Share your positive using  #FridayFivewithBecka.  I’d love to hear the good from your week!
