Five on Friday - May 24, 2019

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you've all had an amazing week! I was lovely that it was a short week and we had the holiday Monday off! 


What did you guys do for the long weekend??? I was so excited to have a weekend at home - with Damian's basketball tournament in Kelowna the previous weekend, with in town tournaments for the previous 2 weekends (sprinkled in with birthday parties and life), I feel like I've had no time at home. We hung out, and I'm starting my garden, but it will all come together over the next few weekends! 

Lets talk about the biggest event of the past week - the Game of Thrones series finale! We finished the series with a costume party and I had to go with my favourite character (who was unjustly left out of the show), Lady Stoneheart! She is Catelyn Stark who was left dead in the river for 3 days after the Red Wedding, and revived through Beric Dondarrion and the Lord of Light. She comes back at this badass who is just out for Lannister and Frey blood. 

I had so much fun creating this look - the neck wound and face scratches were fun. I'm going to do a whole post about the whole look soon! 

And, of course since my hubby already has a longclaw sword, he was obviously Jon Snow. 


But, now the actual show - what did you guys think of the Game of Thrones finale? I feel like I might be in the minority when I say that I liked it. I didn't love it; but, I like that things wrapped up, even if it wasn't in a way I wanted. I've been mulling over it all week and I know people wanted Jon to take the throne; but, I think Jon personally chose to give that up by doing what he did and really his birthright probably wouldn't have matter because they were looking for a change from the "norm" of birthrights. I think Bran was an interesting choice; but, it just makes me look forward to the books even more! 


I recently just picked a couple of cute one-pieces from Joe Fresh and I'm loving these! How cute is the dark floral swimsuit?! I'm still not totally used to wearing one pieces, so it's been hard to find ones that suit me! I love these and Joe Fresh is affordable and accessible! 


Mmmm.... last week I treated myself to a delicious meal at Re:Grub and it may be Calgary's best milkshakes! This one is the Inclusion shake and it was cookies and cream with a macaron by one of my favourite Calgary bakeries, 8 Cakes

I hope you all have a great weekend! 


  1. YOUR LADY STONEHEART IS AMAZING! AAhh, what a fun way to watch the finale. I watched it on a tiny phone screen jumping between connecting flights. LOL.

    1. Ahhh - thank you! I have been planning on being Lady Stoneheart for years - I love her! Ahhh, you still got it in which is awesome!

  2. Your Lady Stoneheart looks freaking amazing! Those scratches and that neck would are incredible, I can't wait to read up on how you made them!
    I wasn't a fan of season 8 at all, I found that they rushed things too much. And I was kind of hoping that the Night King would sit on the Iron Throne and have everyone flee for the isles. That was a stretch, I know. :-) I still found that one episode wasn't enough for that battle given that we've been waiting for it for YEARS!

    1. Yes, that's the best way to explain this season- it was so rushed, they could have given us a full 10 episodes and built up to the same ending!
