5 Fave Friday

5. This skirt/jumper is so adorable. It even has a little heart on the back. 
I really want to try to make something like this myself. I need to make some time for sewing!

4. Pretty spring shoes.
I'm not sure which pair I love more! I really like the big laces and the pretty colours.

3. This shake/smoothie.
Andrea came up with a delicious recipe! I made one yesterday and I am craving one for breakfast today.

2. Jill's bleach painting DIY.
I am slightly terrified of bleach (I know, I bleach my hair) but I really like the effect of this bleach painting.

1. Mollie's super cute pencil tube DIY
The colours are so cute and the scallops extra adorable!

We are supposed to have another beautiful day today and it is going to be a struggle to stay inside and conquer my to do list. I'll have to add something outdoors to it for sure! I'm curious, since we are having unseasonably warm weather here in Hamilton, what is everyone else dealing with? Is your weather acting funky too? Either way, I hope you have a great day!



  1. I really really like the bleaching effect. I'll try it someday

    A mi de verdad me gusta mucho el decolorado. Lo probaré algún día.

  2. I live just down the QEW from you in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and it's wild how vastly the temperature changes from the old town to just a little further from the lake, where I live. the lake is still so cold so old town gets covered in freezing cold fog, while it's 20 odd degrees just 1.5 Km away! Nuts.

  3. Ah, you're so sweet. Thanks for linking to my Leaping Leprechauns shake recipe! I'm happy you liked it. I found a peppermint shake recipe on line a few days before St. Patrick's day and I wanted to try it. Then I read the recipe and it called for cottage cheese and green food dye. The idea of having a shake with cottage cheese in it made me throw up in my mouth a little bit so I created that one.

    I'm LOVING that red jumper! I don't own one single jumper! That's got to change. I've been meaning to make one from a pattern in the book, Little Green Dresses.

    Enjoy your day!

  4. Yes! I'm not sure if Florida really counts, because it seems to always be so warm here, but we hardly had a winter at all. It's already in the high 80s. I'm afraid to see what summer brings!

    I asked for those same oxfords for my birthday, they are SO cute!

  5. ooh that skirt at the top.. I want one!!!

  6. I am all the way over in the Netherlands, and we are having extreme warm weather as well. This almost doesn't feel like spring anymore, it feels like summer! But we are enjoying it to the max, I can tell you that :)

    Love the list, such cute finds!

    I wish you a lovely weekend.

  7. I love that jumper, I've been dying for one like it!

    Here in Florida we completely skipped spring already. It's been in the high 80's for the past week or so, and it isn't supposed to cool down again.

    xo, Megan

  8. That pencil tube is FRICKIN CUTE. Grey & pink AND scallops?! Be still my heart. Thanks for posting the DIY, pretty lady~

  9. Im really excited about trying that DIY with the bleach!

  10. Oooh I love those shoes! Both colours are lovely!

  11. THose shoes are the best! xo, rv

  12. I live in Michigan and even with the lakes, we've been having 80 degree days for a week! We love it of course, but knowing where we live, it's only a matter of minutes before the weather could change again! :) We have a saying here, if you don't like the weather, just wait 5 minutes! :)

  13. That bleach painting DIY is going on my to-do list! It's pretty warm here, too. I'm enjoying it, but we don't usually have 80 degree weather in March xD

  14. Its 80 in NY and i think its a record high! But i'm not complaining, it means gardening early :)

  15. It's about 75 or 80* here in Tennessee. I love it!

  16. I love number 4! The hoes are awesome and I gotta try that DIY!

  17. I have those shoes :) The blue ones... I still haven't worn them because I can't figure out what to wear them with...

  18. I love those shoes in turquoise! Gorgeous!
