Friday Five


I wish all of winter would stay like this December has been- it’s warm and sunny here in Oklahoma! Cold, rainy weather is creeping in this weekend, though, and it looks like it’s going to stick around for a while. Boo, hiss!

Here’s what’s on my radar this week:

ONE “Folgers Incest Commercial Parody”

I totally remember thinking this Folgers commercial was weird when it debuted in 2009; why it’s taken this long to get a parody version, I don’t know. I can’t stop snickering at it.

TWO Navy eyeshadow

At my haircut last weekend, one of the salon’s makeup artists offered to give me a mini-makeover. She got very creative with some navy eyeshadow, and I was immediately obsessed. Of course, I bought it (Aveda’s Petal Essence shadow in blue lapis, if you’re curious) and have been wearing it all week. Since I have blue eyes, I pair it with a coppery shadow and use it as a liner and on the outer edges of my lids.

FOUR TuffRider Regal Patent Leather field boots

Do I need another pair of field boots? Not really, but these butter-soft, super stylish boots with patent leather accents on the toes and tops might find their way home with me anyway.

FIVE Pony Club from A Enter Spooking

Pony Club has had an enormous impact on my life: it’s helped me get jobs, given me horsemanship skills, and helped me understand the whys of things we do as equestrians. Megan of A Enter Spooking wrote a detailed and accurate post about why Pony Club is awesome (as well as why sometimes it isn’t).

    1. These boots are SO NICE in person! The patent accents are very fun, and I don’t think they’re too over the top. Patent has been all the rage in the dressage ring for a while- maybe it’ll catch on with jumpers and eventers!

    1. RIGHT?!?! At first, I thought, “No, surely I just think this is weird because I’m an only child. I don’t have a sibling to love and miss.” But no way man, those two are totally eye-fucking. Gross.

  1. 100% in love with the weather here in MI. Mid-40s to low 50s. Best winter weather ever. Last year this time we were under a foot of snow already.
