Five on Friday - May 8, 2015

I'm linking up for another Five on Friday! Hope everyone has had a great week - I feel like this week has flown by and I am looking forward to the weekend! 

How cute are these bikini tops?! I just got them off of a friend who decided she has too many! They are perfect - I am trying to gather some new bikinis for the honeymoon later this year but don't want to break the bank doing it! She actually bought these at Target before they decided to run away from Canada! 


Mmm.. time for soup of the week! This is my mom's simple (but awesome) Carrot Ginger Soup recipe! 
It is so yummy - here are the steps:
1. Brown these ingredients in a little olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 3-4 celery stalks
2. Add these ingredients
  • 4 cups stock - veggie, chicken or beef (I prefer beef)
  • 2 cups of water
3. Boil for 10 minutes

4. Add these ingredients
  • 4-5 cups chopped carrots (a 2lb bag)
5. Boil for 20 minutes 

6. Add 3-4 tbsp fresh grated ginger & pepper

7. Blend

So easy and delicious! 


Have you been to Universal Studios Florida Harry Potter World?! We went in November and it was honestly nothing short of amazing! I went super crazy in the candy store (because I can only be a witch once!) and bought everything. I have trying to hide my stash and eat it slowly but sadly this week we just finished my favorite candy - Fizzing Whizzbees! If you have a chance to try these, you must! 


Do you guys follow The Wonder Forest? I love her blog - it is so pretty! And she gives great advice on how to improve your own blog, so I was quite happy to see her offer this free "blog bootcamp". She just sends you daily tips on how to improve your blog and I have been trying to update mine a little bit, so this has been great! 


Snow?! Here I have been bragging about how nice the weather has been for Alberta - and then I wake up to this! There wasn't much, but still! Our weather is always crazy... 

How was your week?


  1. This bikini tops are adorable, they kind of remind me of the new triangl suit that is going around! Have a wonderful weekend!
