Friday Five

May 18, 2012

It's been a while since I have done one of these posts, but here I am back at it.

{1}. Animal Twins. I told my friend Melanie that the animal she looked like was a turtle, and in turn asked what I would be, and she said a Koala Bear..and then created these comparisons:

{2} Fashion {Insta}. My blogging pal, Hilary, started a series called Fashion {Insta}. Every Thursday she is going to compile outfit pics that bloggers submit from Instagram. Love this concept and plan to participate as much as possible. Check out the first post of the series Here. E-mail Hilary at to submit your pictures.

{3} Colored Denim. I have been continuing my obsession with colored denim lately. I blame it on Kendi. I have a red pair already...but naturally I need (want?) more. It's a toss up between Gap (left) or Francesca's (right).  --Help!--

{4} Poshmark. I decided to give this app a try to sell some items I am not wearing. We'll see how it goes. You can follow me @jessiaub. Learn more here.

{5} Succulents. I am pretty obsessed with succulents. I made some coffee table arrangements last weekend..this weekend I plan to stray from succulents and plant some vegetables to enjoy this summer. You can see more of my succulent pics on Instagram @jessiaub.

I'll leave you with this bit of Friday Inspiration:
--Great People Talk About Ideas
--Average People Talk About Things
--Small People Talk About Others

Let’s strive to be great today.
