High Five for Friday

It's Friday again & the sun is shinning!!  I'm going for another twist on High Five for Friday today.  Inspired by this post on Maskcara, I thought I'd share 5 things that make me happy for $5 or less. Sounds easy, right? Well not as easy as I thought it was going to be...things cost a lot these days, haha! However, I persevered - so without further ado, here are my 5 bits of happiness:

1) Starbucks Coffee:  My order - Venti Iced Coffee with White Mocha & room. Then I top it off with Half-and-Half....yum!  The cost is around $3.80 depending on tax rate. If you follow the blog on Facebook, you'll already know that I have been known to strap my coffee in for safety too ;-)

2) Clearance Jewelry at Target:  I can typically find something fabulous for under $5...these were all under $3!!

3) Baby Lips by Maybelline:  These satisfy me when I feel the need to try something new for lip color. At just under $4 I don't have to worry about a big investment to make me second guess the purchase. The colors look strong in the tube, but all the colors I have tried go on very sheer, & in a way are "buildable" if you want a stronger color.

4) Foaming Hand Wash from Bath and Body Works:  I like to keep a few varying bottles of these in the cabinet. That way I can switch out the scent depending on the season or bring out a fresh new bottle when company is over. Currently they have a Hawaiian line out that just screams summer!  I like the foam too because it feels light & doesn't take forever to rinse off. I even like to give these as a part of a gift fun for a housewarming gift?! This one may be considered cheating though, because you typically have to buy 4-6 bottles at once in order to get the price per bottle under $5.  But, I suppose this is my blog so I can break the rules, right?!

5) Music:  While I don't do it often, it makes me very happy to buy a current favorite song from iTunes. It simply makes me happy to listen to it over & over & over if I so choose!  Currently I'm loving Bruno Mars' newest release, "Young Girls"!!  Now I'm singing it in my it!

So, there you have it. Now it's your turn....what little purchases make you happy for $5 or less?

Happy Weekend!!

  1. You do such a great job of making these 5-posts entertaining, Kellie. I have to agree with you on the Starbucks iced coffee. I've been on a Toffee Nut kick lately but maybe next time I'll switch it up for White Mocha. And I can usually find some fun jewelry at Forever 21 for under $5, so those are my top two treats for under $5!

  2. Target clearance is the BEST!
