I feel like I haven’t done a real Friday Five in forever – but I pulled it together this week to get some updates going.

I shared on stories recently that I’m going to be working with an interior designer on our master bedroom. I can’t truly say I’ve ever loved our master bedroom in any of our three homes. It’s always the space that gets thrown to the bottom of the priority list. Our bedroom is large (not a bad thing!) and it’s bright and airy (definitely a great thing) but I’d like it to feel complete and add some more texture/patterns in the space. We currently have four dressers in the room (two as bedside tables and two others) which feels like a lot, even though there’s still plenty of room in the space. I’m so curious to see what our designer comes up with in terms of how we should lay out the room and what we should remove/add. I’m already building Pinterest boards with rooms I love! I love designing the spaces in our home and getting one piece at a time, but after following so many home blogs and interior designer’s feeds, I can see why doing it all at once and then doing an “install” can make a space more enjoyable.

Gray Malin, aerial beach photographer extraordinaire, just came out with a new children’s book called Be Our Guest and I immediately purchased it on amazon! I love his work (I have this book too) and can’t wait to share his beautiful images with the kids.

We just booked our summer trip and I’m so excited for some beach time. We’ll be heading somewhere in Florida – more to come on that. In the meantime, I’m crushing on this beach tote, this ruffle swimsuit and so many swim cover-ups. I also can’t wait to wear all of the suits I got during the ShopBop sale – woohoo! I have heard a ton of great things about this inexpensive swimwear brand also — have y’all purchased from this brand?
Speaking of swim cover-ups, this one is a fave and has the coolest back!

I started taking Nutrafol hair vitamins but plan to take them for 3 months before reporting back. You can listen to a Podcast about the hair vitamin here (it was co-created by a doctor). If you order from Nutrafol.com, you can use the code “veronabrit” at checkout for 10% off of a scubscription for new customers. Just to be transparent, Nutrafol did send me the vitamins to try, but I am in no way obligated to share them and will wait several months to report back to determine if I think they worked for me.

The Man Repeller wrote an article about how the comments she gets on her Instagram selfies are different now that she’s a mom and it really resonated with me.
I loved this New Yorker article about the “one woman who has it all”
My friend Sara launched a hat with Hat Attack – yay! It’s so cute!
John Benton launched his website so you can now do his workouts remotely if you can’t train with him in Dallas!
WORLD MARKET is having their huge 30% off sale — I am ordering this fiddle leaf tree and these baskets are my fave! You guys also always ask about this gold rolling cart and this marble lazy Susan. Use code YAYFRIENDS at checkout! I also love this pink bench and this ombre pillow.
My pajamas I wore in Dallas at rsthecon are on sale for under $30 and they ship for free! They are seriously amazing and the prettiest shade of pink. Perfect for warmer temps. Mine are a medium!This white bell sleeve top is $37 and I get compliments every time I wear it! It looks like the more expensive version (here, but also on sale!) Get a similar $13 version here.
I ordered these heels in nude and can’t wait for them to come in – reviews said it might be a good idea to size up!

Where did you get the organizing items from yesterdays “6 ways to spring clean your bathroom” post?
You can find the lazy Susan here, the acrylic drawer organizers here and the acrylic skincare organizer I use, here (and here is another option).
Where did you get Harper’s rainbow dress?
Harper’s rainbow dress is here. I also got Lincoln this shirt. Great quality and similar styles to Boden for less than half the cost.
How do you like your Nespresso machine?
I’m obsessed! I have this one, which brews both coffee and espresso pods. I keep it at my desk at work since we already have a different model at home and only use that on weekends. It also comes with a milk frother, so I used unsweet vanilla almond milk and mix in cinnamon powder. I love the taste of their coffee (my favorite is the Vanizio and the banana flavor) and the espresso pods are also amazing (I order the Altissio and the Voltesso). Nespresso pods are more cost-efficient that daily Starbucks and I love having “fancy” coffee and lattes every morning versus the office coffee (not knocking it, just love the creamy/frothy way Nespresso pods brew).
What do you use to drink your coffee?
Everyone needs this 20 oz Yeti rambler. Seriously. Buy one for yourself, buy one for every mom in your life. They keep drinks piping hot so no more “I’m always drinking cold coffee!” NO MORE, my friends. This is the best $30 you’ll ever spend and if you give one as a gift, you will get ALL THE TEXTS about how hot your friend’s coffee still is. Seriously. Best coffee cup ever (sorry, mugs).
Where is your caned desk from?
The caned desk I shared is from the Opalhouse collection and I adore it – a great way to add some warmth to any space! The round floral mirror is here.
How do you curl your hair?
I’ve been getting this question a lot lately on stories – read my post and see a video tutorial, here!
Happy happy happy friday and thanks for being the best readers!
