5 Favorites (vol. 1)

I just HAD to join in the 5 favorites fun over at Moxie Wife this week. {This should not to be confused with the 5 things that Jane and Rose still owe us…} Just as the world is better off knowing about Claire’s storied political career, the world really needs to know what 5 frivolous things are currently making my materialistic heart pitter-patter.

1. I know I said that yellow wouldn’t work in my living room for my chair reupholstery project, but I just can’t get it can’t get it out of my head.  Pinterest isn’t helping.

Aren’t they beautiful???  What do you think?

2.  Speaking of colors, this one is on my toes:

Essie Geranium

Too bad no one sees it because it’s basically winter still.  Ugh.

3. Another thing that hasn’t seen the light of day since I bought them a few weeks ago…

Thank you Gap Friends and Family sale (40% off!) and oodles of hoarded rewards points.  Now I am sufficiently trendy for the spring and summer, IF IT EVER COMES!

4.  Mint skinnies leads me to Laura of This Felicitous Life.  I’m loving her series on style and the stay-at-home-mom.  Clearly it’s something that I obsess think about very often.  I love her funny/real take on this all-important issue!  Oh, and I love her wordpress blog design.  Stylish mom-minds think alike!


Mad Men.  This Sunday.  Dave and I are so crazy excited about this!

Check out the other fab five favs at Moxie Wife!

  1. Ellen, i'm obsessed w/ all your favorites. Those chairs are so stinkin' pretty. I love Essie polish, and that color is so fun! I just ordered a pair of mint skinnies too and can't wait to try 'em out. Finally, I recently started Mad Men on Netflix and am hooked. 🙂

    • Thanks Lisa! I watched the first four seasons of Mad Men on netflix while I was newly pregnant and nauseous. Also, my husband was working for 3 months in NJ while I was alone in our new place in Boston. It was a riveting way to spend the time but it made me highly skeptical of my husband's faithfulness while he was away. That darn Don Draper!

  2. Love the skinny jeans. Fabulous color! I am also loving the yellow furniture. So pretty!! But my fav has to be the geranium nail polish. Love that shade…love!!
