Friday Features Week 5 – Stars of Netflix and New Home Decor
April 13, 2018
What has been possibly one of the slowest work weeks ever, is finally reaching its end. Which means it’s time for a new Friday Features!
Feature 1: Instagrammer – Alyson Haley
With over 440k followers, Alyson Haley is a very well-known fashion/lifestyle blogger on the social media front. I came across her blog when trying to find other bloggers in the Jacksonville area. She currently lives in Jacksonville, but has also lived in London, which she writes a lot about as well. I, personally, love her neutral, simple yet cute style and outfits. Besides fashion, Alyson also writes about her travels (my personal faves!), home decor, and her two adorable dachshunds.
Feature 2: Current Obsession – Sparkling Ice Waters
I’ve tried LaCroix (blegh ), Deer Park Strawberry Sparkling Water (even more blegh), and plain Perrier sparkling water (way too plain). I though sparkling water just wasn’t for me, until I stumbled upon Sparkling Ice. They were on sale, so I decided to give the sparkling water trend one last go. Now, I’m a convert. These Sparkling Ice Waters are so addicting and come in many great flavors! They are great soda substitutes and change of pace from plain water throughout the day especially when you’re craving something sweet. My personal favorite flavors are peach nectarine, crisp apple (basically bubbly apple juice), and orange mango. Even their sparkling lemonades are delicious!
Feature 3: National Pet Day – Kristen Bell Interviews the Celebrities of Netflix
In honor of National Pet Day this week, Netflix released a special video of Kristen Bell interviewing the furrier stars of their hit original shows. If you don’t know who Kristen Bell is….go watch “Veronica Mars” now. She is hilarious, a great actress, and her and husband, Dax Shepherd, are #relationshipgoals. So, it’s with no surprise, that Netflix recruited the animal lover herself (see sloth video here) to interview the Corgis (“The Crown”), Mews (“Stranger Things”), Bunny and Kitty (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Cosmo (“Fuller House”), and Benji (“Benji”).
Feature 4: Home Decor – Target’s Opalhouse Home Collection
Ever since buying my own home, I’ve been obsessed with finding new home collections and decor pieces. Recently, Target released their Opalhouse home collection and it’s amazing! It’s divided into three “style” collections: Indochic (richer tones mixed with exotic touches), Canyon Sunrise (lighter pinks and oranges), and Mallorca (black and white pieces with delicate materials). I love the idea of mixing some of the pink pieces from Canyon Sunrise with the black/white pieces of Mallorca. Some of my favorites are:
