Friday Five Vol. 3

Happy, Friday friends! This week has been pretty crazy. I am in my best friend’s wedding tomorrow here in Chicago and tonight, we have the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. On top of that, I’ve been trying to prepare for Thanksgiving next week AND my body rebelled against me as I’m currently sick. Any favorite cold remedies? Let a girl know! Keep reading below to check out some of my recent favorites.

Read // How your day of birth influences your personality

Sure, everyone talks about their zodiac signs and horoscopes, but have you ever stopped to consider how the day of the week you were born on defines you? A lot of people agree with certain personality traits associated with their zodiac sign and it’s the same idea with days of the week. For example, I was born on a Tuesday and I definitely find most of what it says about me to be true. Take a look at yours! It’s super intriguing.

Eat // honeygrow

To say I’m obsessed with honeygrow is an utter understatement! This fast-casual chain serves stir-fry and salads. Their ingredients are locally sourced and so fresh that they don’t even have freezers in the space. honeygrow opened their first Chicago store on Morgan and Lake in Fulton Market earlier this fall, dangerously close to my office. They also just opened a second one downtown. Check it out if you can and get the All The Fall Things salad! It’s so, so yummy with arugula, goat cheese, bacon, yams, and more.

Listen // Faking It by Calvin Harris, Kehlani, and Lil Yachty

Sadly, I’ve fallen off the podcast bandwagon over the past few weeks and have been listening to A LOT of music on Spotify instead. Their Release Radar playlist is a great one because I never miss new songs like this one. I first heard Kehlani when she opened up for G-Eazy here in Chicago two years ago. Her voice and the lyrics over Calvin Harris’s production? AMAZING.

Shop // Sephora’s Black Friday sale

If you’re a beauty lover, don’t miss out on Sephora’s Black Friday deals! They don’t do a certain percentage off the whole store for Black Friday, but they do these mini-gift sets and deals. You can snag them online and in stores next Friday (not Thursday). In particular, I have my eye on the Bite Beauty Mini Multistick Duo ($15) and the Philosophy Always on the Glow set ($15).

Do // Book a blowout with PRÊTE

Why not? You deserve it, trust me. PRÊTE is a really cool app I was recently introduced to that you can use to book blowouts for special events (or just to treat yourself) four days in advance. I wish you could book out a bit sooner than that for things like weddings, but hopefully, they’ll add that feature in the future. They also have blowout packages if you’re the type of gal who likes to go often!

I hope you all have the most amazing weekend! See you back here soon.
