Five for Friday #44

Happy Friday, friends!! I hope you’re ready to have the best day, because I am ready to have the best day! And what makes today the best kind of Friday, you ask? Well 1- I took the day off work so not going into the office will be a great change and 2- I’m going on a little mini girls trip this weekend! We’re leaving sometime this morning and heading down to Waco, TX (yes, for the Magnolia pilgrimage) and I’m so excited! I have been to Waco before a few years ago with some friends, and we did go to the Magnolia Silos, but we were there before the restaurant or the bakery were open, so I’m VERY excited to check out all the new and old things and explore Waco a little more!

I’ve got 5 great things I wanted to share today, so let’s get started!!

ONE || I started drinking this Glowing Green Smoothie at the beginning of 2018 and drank it every day for probably a month straight! Then I started traveling and forgot to buy the ingredients and I kind of forgot about it… until recently! I started drinking it again in the mornings and have fallen in love with it once again! It doesn’t taste like a delicious sugary smoothie, but it actually tastes pretty good! I’ve tailored the recipe to just make one serving at a time and that works out really well for me!

TWO || I loved this post from Carly about how social media is kind of at a ‘tipping point’ and I’m all for it. I don’t make much money from blogging and just do it for fun, but I can imagine that doing this FOR YOUR JOB comes with so much pressure to seem perfect from the outside. Some of my favorite people to follow are the ones who are real and share all aspects of life, even if it includes imperfect photos or being real about having a bad day.

THREE || Did anybody buy anything fun in this year’s Lilly Pulitzer after party sale?!? I look at the sale every year, but never really find anything that I just HAVE to have (even if something is on sale, you’re not SAVING money, you’re SPENDING money, right?) But then this year… I found THE PERFECT WORK PANTS! I saw them and immediately fell in love with the pattern (they’re very “me”) and the price was AMAZING. I was debating whether or not to bite the bullet and purchase but then I saw that they were called “the KELLY pant” and ummm yeah, you better believe I got them! They’re definitely more spring-y, but I will be wearing them year-round with pride. They’re no longer available on their website, so now I’m extra glad I snagged them while they were on major sale!

FOUR || I. Love. This. It. Is. So. True.

FIVE || I don’t know if I’ve ever actually made biscuits but ummmmm I REALLY want to make all the biscuits now…

Southern Biscuits


That’s it for today, friends! I can’t wait to share about our Waco weekend – I’m sure I’ll be documenting the whole thing on Instagram stories, so follow along with me at @kellymullican if you want to travel vicariously with us! Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I was actually VERY bothered by Carly’s post- in the last few years, she has really changed and a lot of that falls squarely on her own shoulders. It is bloggers like Carly (who has admitted countless times now) that perpetuate ridiculously curated feeds and lives, she has played a large hand in the current state of things. And I don’t care what any trolls have done, in the past year she has openly criticized bloggers while doing the same thing herself (you can’t say people push the Nordstrom sale too much and then put up a post with countless affiliate links to the same sale so that she can profit), she has stalked people to the point of posting where they work, she has been downright cruel and rude to commenters. I think that Carly needs to either take a hard look at herself and take responsibility for a lot of things, or it is time for her to hang up her keyboard. It is really too bad, I have followed her blog for a good 5+ years and I’m sad to see where it ended up, but The Tipping Point was the end for me, I will no longer support her

    • That’s a fair point – I enjoy that her Instagram stories are pretty “real” but you’re right, her feed is still very curated… it’ll be interesting to see what she changes (if anything) and what that will look like.
