Friday Five {#6}

1. Balanced App

I'm the kind of person who has to-do lists for just about everything in my life - and long ones too! However, all of these lists are things that I have to do, not things that I want to do. Enter Balanced, the app that reminds you to do things that make you happy. Everyone has busy schedules, and it's easy to get sucked into the internet and TV during our down time and forget to do things that you actually enjoy doing. This app gives you daily/weekly/monthly/yearly reminders to unplug and do something that you love to do, but don't necesarily make the time for. If you're a busy body like me, I definitely recommend trying this app!

2. Justin Timberlake VMA Performance (and N*SYNC reunion HELLO!)


I was a TOTAL N*SYNC girl back in my middle school days, so obviously the 90 seconds that N*SYNC was on the stage was my favorite moment out of the entire VMAs. I was a bit worried that the rumors weren't true, but as soon as those 3 dancers went into puppet mode and the music to "Gone" started, I just started...

...doing this. #notashamed

And I'm pretty sure about 3/4s of America was doing the exact same thing. Not to mention how amazing JT's entire performance was! President of Pop, indeed.

3. Fall Totes

Next week my life is going to explode with busy-ness, so I've been drooling over big, pocketed totes that I can carry my entire life in. I usually rock a backpack, but I look young enough as it is so I'd like to get something a bit more grown up for grad school.

I especially love these Dagne Dover T.I totes (I mean look at all of those pockets!), but it's waaaay out of my price range, so I'm hunting for a cheaper alternative. If you know of any, please let me know!

4. Minus the Bear Radio

This has been the go-to Pandora station for me this week. Minus the Bear, Phoenix, Explosions in the Sky, Death Cab for Cutie, Modest Mouse, and Passion Pit have all been my soundtrack while I work and I'm falling in love with each of them all over again!

5. Best Vines

How I've been feeling the past few weeks preparing for the semester >_>

I'm obsessed with the Best Vines Facebook page. Brett and I can spend hours scrolling through and watching each one! Hit the jump for some of my faves!


  1. Oh that Balanced app looks definitely like something I should get! Thanks for the hint :)

  2. pretty bags and funny vine videos ^^

    1. I'm glad you enjoy! I want one of those totes so bad!

  3. I am obsessed with the Dagne Dover bags, I know you posted this in 2013, so i don't know if you will see this but did you end up finding a cheaper alternative to those bags? I'm currently a college student so its definitely out of my budget range

    1. I did see this comment! I get notifications to my email whenever I get comments so it all works out. :) I actually ended up receiving a Dagne Dover as a gift, so my hunt for an alternative was quickly ended, but I'm sure there are many similar bags now if you do a quick Google search!
