Five on Friday


Rebecca Black // Friday //


Never gonna get old… like… ever.

We all know that I’ve just begun this whole debt repayment journey. I’m trying to be ultra careful with my money (don’t even ask me how that’s going because Idon’twannatalkaboutitrightnowokay).

I recently read this article with some REALLY shocking numbers about how much stuff we have. and don’t need.

But sometimes… you actually need to replace things. Let’s say… you “need” to replace things, because I guess the word need is completely relative.

This is a list of 5 things I need am wanting to replace.

ONE button //

Instax Film

Last summer, I debated between a FitBit and an Instax. I ended up getting both. and I use both VERY consistently. I can’t find the Instax film ANYWHERE so when I buy them on Amazon, I like to stock up. Luckily I can redeem my Swagbucks for Amazon gift cards and I can get this film with the Swagbucks Gift Cards!


TWO button //

Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser

I got a small sample of this cleanser in one of my Birchboxes and I LOOOOVED it. A few months ago, I splurged and redeemed some Birchbox Points to buy this with a coupon code I had. I still love it. It smells amazing and is really fun – it starts kind of gritty, but when you add water it gets foamy. It’s a great experience. Time to replace it!


THREE button // stephanieorefice.netOops!… I Did It Again

DON’T YOU EVEN JUDGE ME FOR THIS ONE. For some reason I’ve just been really sad that I don’t have a copy of this album anymore. I mean… one of my 101 in 1001 things is to organize my CDs, and I’m guessing if I went on a massive treasure hunt, I could probably find this CD. But I need the sweet songs of Miss Brit back in my life like ASAP. I need dance parties and love songs and OMG doesn’t this album have the song Dear Diary on it? I remember crying my eyes out to that song!! Yeah I have to replace this very soon.


FOUR button // stephanieorefice.netPura Vida Hair Ties

It’s been awhile since I’ve ordered anything from Pura Vida. These are my FAVORITE hair ties. They’re SO CUTE and colorful and they’re really gentle on my hair. For SOME WEIRD REASON, I tend to lose them like crazy. I mean I guess they’re hair ties and that’s the name of the game, right? Hair ties and freaking bobby pins, but don’t even get me started on that struggle.


FIVE button // stephanieorefice.netHappy Cup Coffee
Happy Cup Coffee //

The weather here is still kind of back and forth. Some days it’s really nice in the morning and other days it’s really overcast. I definitely think there’s an art to deciding if you should have hot or cold coffee. Thankfully there’s an app for that, and I kid you not. Also a website… Anyway. It’s been iced coffee weather. I’m on the hunt to find the perfect iced mocha. In the meantime, I loooove downing endless cups of joe in the early hours of the morning while in my pajamas. EXCEPT I’M ABOUT TO RUN OUT. Happy Cup Coffee is a brilliant coffee company with a great mission. Their cafe is a 5 minute walk away from my work so I like to go over there on my lunch break. Next time I have to pick up a bag (OR TWO) of beans.


Okay… I MAY have purchased the hair ties because they were 50% off. I probably did, but I’m not sure….. 😉

Happy Friday!
Have a safe and fun weekend (any plans!?)!

See you back on Monday!

      right!? they’re my absolute fave! they also have headbands, but my head is a weird shape and don’t hold headbands too well.

    I’m with Anna–those hair ties are so cute! Have you seen the ones at Mane Message? I got a pack for free during one of their sales 🙂 #salesarethebest am I right or am I right. And that face scrub sounds AWESOME! Apparently now that I’m 23 my face has decided to regress to what it looked like when I was 12. Aka I need to up my face wash game.

    • May 15, 2015 / 10:25 pm

      i’ve never even heard of mane message — i’ll have to check them out!! && amen on the sales!!

      the face scrub is SO GOOD. it’s almost a little too harsh for me to use every day. on the regular i use derma-e, OR i use a mix of honey + cinnamon + nutmeg. it’s a face mask, too. it’s perfect!! and it helps with breakouts.

    Hope you’ve been having some decent weather this weekend! I’m with you on craving some of the “back in the day” music. Every once in a while, having a car singalong with N’Sync just feels good. Old Britney does the trick too 🙂 Have a great rest of the weekend! Thanks for linking uip with us at H54F!

    I’m going to read that article about having too much stuff! Mostly because I’ve been shopping waaay too much lately and I’ve now banned myself and I’m hoping this will give me motivation to stick with it! Those hair ties are really cute! And you get that Britney Spears CD! No judgement here, just respect for your taste in music. 🙂

    • May 19, 2015 / 10:39 am

      mattie! i believe in you! if you need spending accountability, i’m your girl. that post blew my mind. and thanks for letting this be a safe, non-judgmental place where i can share my love for high quality, artistic musical masterpieces 🙂 🙂 🙂

    I actually remember the day I got the Opps I Did it Again album when it came out! We were leaving for vacation and I listened to it for 18 hrs straight in the car on my discman! I totally feel you on the cutting back – not spending money is SO HARD.

    • May 19, 2015 / 10:41 am

      DISCMAN! you brought out the word DISCMAN!! you took this to a whole new level and I LOVE IT!!! 18 hours straight.. i can feel that, i can feel that.

      not spending money is hard until you get in a place where you just don’t spend it. like this is crazy but i haven’t made a single careless target purchase all month. WHAT. normally i go once or twice a week and buy all the things i don’t need. but i think my mentality is starting to shift! plus i’d rather spend $3 and get an iced coffee (with free starbucks gold card refills just saying) and sit at starbucks and work on my blog for 3 hours instead of spending money. just gotta shift your mentality!

    I legit have NO idea how to use those hair ties. Is it easy?? Also… nobody blames you for Britney Spears. We all like her, whether it secretly or not.

    • May 19, 2015 / 10:41 am

      they’re just like normal hair ties! lol. you just twist them around your hair.
      and i want to go to vegas and see her show so bad.
      i love britney spears. she is so pretty and fun. 🙂 🙂 🙂

      • May 21, 2015 / 3:11 pm

        Oh. I feel dumb. hahaha I just looked at them in the store the other day and I was like, I don’t.. understand.. it’s.. weird looking..
