friday five …

apparently, everyone and their mother got the memo about leopard.   after this post, i noticed it everywhere!  so i searched for a bunch more leopard pieces!  of course, i had to include these vans sneakers (on sale too!!).  here's another cute version of vans!  how in the world did i not include them in the first place?!  i'm loving ankle straps lately and here's a pair in leopard! i also love these flats ... the tassel on them is adorable.  not a fan of the tassel…this and this and this (beware: pricey!) are a plain pair of leopard flats.  these espadrilles from free people are too cute!  searching for booties?  this pair, this pair (a favorite!), and this pair are cute!  here , here, and here (a favorite and on sale!) are a few fun pairs of leopard heels! these sandals will be perfect for the summer!  last but not least (and not a shoe), i love clare vivier clutches and just recently discovered this great tote and these great sunglasses. i love.

nutella pudding. enough said.  i discovered this recipe from Jo at A Cup of Jo who is sharing a bunch of delicious nutella recipes.  want to make your own from scratch?  find the recipe here.  you must check them all out!  especially with the snowstorm (again.) predicted for this upcoming weekend.  it'll be the perfect time to whip up nutella swirled banana bread or crepes.  how about nutella stuffed brown butter sea salt chocolate chip cookies via ambitious kitchen?! yum.
side note:  is it spring/summer yet ?! i'm so over this weather!

since we're speaking of baking, let's bake this homemade version of girl scouts samoa cookies! pair your homemade cookies with this recipe for  somoas cookie & cream coconut milkshakes and you have a happy friday night!  want a healthy chocolate treat?  for breakfast, maybe?  view this recipe for a chocolate-almond oatmeal smoothie.

how amazing is this necklace?  i'm obsessed with it lately.  sadly, it doesn't ship until late march, so here are a few other fun options:  here, here, here (similar to above), and here.

i desperately want these pants!  can anyone (ANYONE?!) justify where & when i'd wear them?!?!  

i thought not…well, my husband will be happy.  much more practical is this cute little leopard print bathing suit (clearly it's a theme for this week!) i scored for logan.  it's almost sold out online, but check your local stores.

happy friday!

Love, Tara

lastly, can you help me identify what brand sunnies these are?! i'm dying to know who makes these sunglasses! for a better image, click here to view them
