Friday Five

Hi there! This is Kelly from Just Browsing. My habitual shopping problem led me to writing this blog. Since I can’t buy everything, I often tell the salesperson “no thanks, I’m just browsing”. Next time you say it, think of me! My blog is a lifestyle blog, mostly fashion, easy recipes thrown in and recently I have added an interview column. I’ve got a long list of interesting people to meet and interview, it all started with the fun I had meeting ABC 7 Tracy Butler. I live in Elmhurst, have 2 teenage boys and met my husband on Match.com. Follow me on Instagram @ Kellyrae_Nelson.

    1. With this ridiculous weather we have been having, Nikki of Thirties and Chic has some great advice and product recommendation for taking care of your lips. Yes, my lips are dry and chapped because there couldn’t be any less moisture in the air. The only good thing about this weather is that my hair is half the size now than on a humid day.

I follow Claire Rose from Centered by Design on Instagram and love seeing her inspirational shots. Her blog post titled Damn Good Design Articles: Edition 2 is full of great ideas from affordable nursery design to window treatment lingo.

  1. Maris from In Good Taste posted 12 doughnut recipes for Valentine’s Day, but of course we all know that everyday is doughnut day, so I will be visiting this post for baked doughnut recipes ranging from baked lemon poppyseed to baked sour cream, I want to try them all!
  2. My husband and I travel a lot, mostly I go with on his work trips, but in 3 weeks we are headed to Puerto Rico for some guaranteed sunshine. Anna at A Lily Love Affair put together a Lust List: Vacation Edition. I’ll be shopping some of her sandal suggestions!
  3. Why I’ll never be cool is a post by Nicole from Midwest Love Fest – it’s a funny, deprecating account about how she is weird and how she is owning it. Thank you for the honesty Nicole, we all feel that way but don’t usually say so!
  • So excited about your upcoming trip!! And even more excited to see all your amazing pictures! We consider PR this year too so I can’t wait to hear how much you love it! Thank you so much for including the Lust List in your round-up! XOXO
