5 on Friday: Crutch Free Edition

It’s time for another edition of Five on Friday with A Liz AdventuresThe Good Life BlogHello Happiness and Carolina Charm.

THE GOOD LIFE BLOG1. Guns + Butter

I recently wrote about my experience with Guns + Butter during Detroit Restaurant Week – you can read more about it here. Well guess what? I got an email around 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday night offering more seatings for Guns + Butter. They are hosting dinners on October 25, 26, 30 and November 1 and 2. Chef Craig Lieckfelt is opening up his personal test kitchen for these special seatings. If you are interested in getting on the waiting list, you can email reservations@gbdetroit.com.

I am treating my husband to one of these special dinners as a thank you for taking care of me with my broken foot for the past month.

GB122. CastCoverZ

I got good news at my doctor’s appointment on Wednesday. My foot is healing nicely and I don’t have to use crutches anymore!! I do have to continue wearing my walking boot for another two weeks, but I can put weight on it and start walking around normally. Thank goodness! The timing is funny because I was just about to decorate my crutches with colored tape. I did discover CastCoverZ and last week my special crutch pads arrived. These were great because the pads were starting to wear down on my crutches and hurt my hands. I wish I would have discovered this site before, because you can order colored crutches and all sorts of accessories.

I got the black trellis pads (I didn’t get the bag just the pads) and I love them. They are so easy to put on and take off which is great if you want to wash them. I decided to go with something a little more professional since I had to take them to work and to teach.


3. Kate Spade Toast Flats

I saw these the other day and thought they would be perfect for holiday parties if I can’t get back in heels yet.

canvas4. Clinique Eye for Colour

Lord & Taylor is hosting a special Clinique event: Eye for Colour to learn about their new eyeshadows. You can make an appointment at your nearest Lord & Taylor store through November 3rd.

Just for attending you get a 10-day supply of Clinique’s Happy Perfume Spray mini and your choice of Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream mini or All About Eyes mini. Also, don’t forget that the Clinique bonus at Macy’s is still running through October 27th.

Forget the fox! I am all about pigs over here! I love, love, love piggies and I decided I had to have this sweater when I stumbled across it earlier this week on Bluefly. What’s not to love? It’s cashmere and adorable!


Do you have anything that you are loving this week and want to share?
