friday five: link love.

Happy Friday! J’s honeymooning in Italy this week and next, so L is holding down the glitter fort.

Here’s what we’re feeling right now: a charming springtime salad, the cutest tote, a must-try cocktail, how to use your iPhone (really) and a quiz we dare you to take. Hope you love these links as much as we do!

The Glitter Life Friday Five
our weekend musts: two must-makes, two must-dos, and one must-have.

1. Salad Nicoise. We’re craving fresh flavor right now, and this gorg salad (half the joy is in the arranging) brought to you by A Beautiful Mess fits the bill perfectly.

2. Cutest Tote Ever. Yes. Just yes. We’re ordering this tote pronto.


3. Grapefruit PalomaWhat’s a Paloma, you ask? A delicious tequila-based cocktail with just the right amount of fizz. So refreshing. Just looking at this picture makes us wish it was happy hour.

4. 20 Cool iPhone Hacks. This article details 20 useful tricks to get the most out of your beloved iPhone. Some you’ll recognize, most you won’t. At least we didn’t! Upgrade to fancy quotation marks? Don’t mind if we DO.

5. Quiz. Flashback to our Seventeen magazine days – who doesn’t love a good quiz? Take the “How Design Savvy Are You?” quiz by Domaine and test whether you know your book-matched from your herringbone. Spoiler: L is a Design Master! But you probably knew that already. 😉

Hope you have a beautiful weekend!

motivation monday | watch your step.

J: Monday. We meet again. As drab as it may sound, I have some exciting finds to share with you!

Jay and I are getting married in a mere 61 days (EEEK.) Needless to say, we’ve kicked our diets and exercise into HIGH gear.

With the help of Jawbone UP and My Fitness Pal apps, it’s actually been fun! Here’s the story:

To start, Jay got us each one of these little cuties:


Jawbone UP Move tracks your steps and activity as well as your sleep patterns.Check it:

The Glitter Life Jawbone Up

We synced these bad boys with My Fitness Pal for the complete package. Set your goals and log your calories consumed via the MFP app and let your Jawbone tell you what you’ve burned. Make your adjustments as necessary. Easy.

It’s back to basics this weekend, girls. When a new season rolls around, you realize you need a lot of NEW things and not just fashion “essentials”…

2. Moisturizer: Don’t let you skin suffer during these cooler temps. Lather on this moisturizer from Dermalogica and you’re golden.

3. Polish: Essie has done it again {no surprise} with their Fall 2014 collection. “Take It Outside” is hands down our favorite shade.

tank: Pink Martini, available here // jeans: level 99 (select sizes available, call 912.681.7008) // heels: Lovely People (also seen here; no longer available)

When we saw this adorable cat print tank at Pink Martini at MAGIC in Vegas, we couldn’t resist. It’s purrfect (see what we did there?) with tough coated denim and killer heels. And yes, that’s a Blackberry you see in these pics. L is temporarily without an iPhone…hence the scowl in the first pic.
