Five On Friday: Dr. Brene Brown

I couldn't be more happy it's Friday! Two long weeks in the books and some of my best people arrive tonight for a long visit. Life.Is.Good.

Now, how about some Five on Friday?!

Dr. Brene Brown. I feel like I've been living under a rock because I wasn't aware of the amazingness that is Dr. Brene Brown. I saw her keynote speech at SXSW on Daring Greatly (also the title of one of her books) this past week and while it sounds dramatic, I'm pretty sure it changed my life. 

I've embedded her TED talk below which is pretty powerful as well. Hit pause on your Netflix binge of the week and watch this right now. You're welcome.

Off the shoulder anything. Particularly this white sundress from ASOS that I just ordered for under $50. I have big plans for this little number, so stay tuned.
ZVOLTZ wireless charger case. This was my saving grace while traveling and at SX. Yes, I know, there is a very popular name brand one, but the price tag was so high ($120?!). I found this one on Amazon for only $40 and it works great. Highly recommend!
Snapchat friends. I know I've mentioned how much I love Snapchat before (my username is ephilli), but this time I thought I would share some of my favorite people to follow.

Mommy/Daughter Dates. Being gone from Sully for five days was rough, but when I got home it was like I had never been gone. This little girl rocks you guys, she's just the best! One night this week the weather was so great that we walked to a Chick-Fil-A that's not too far away. I dubbed it our first mommy/daughter date and it was so much fun. I can't wait to go on more with her (hello mani/pedis!) as she gets older and more able to do fun things. 

Any suggestions on great mommy/daughter dates?
Have a great weekend folks!
