My First Five on Friday

I bet you can't say the post title 3 times fast!  Well, I'm happy that we've finally made it to Friday, even though I have a jam packed weekend.  Since I really like lists, I'm excited to do my first Five on Friday!
I kind of got in the spirit of dressy & casual looks with yesterday's post.  So my dressy & casual feeling is going to translate into my favorite celebrity looks of the week.  There were so many really pretty looks this week & celebs really brought there A-game!  Here are my favorites:
Pictures from

-Jessica Alba in Reem Acra at Baby2Baby Gala in Culver City, CA.
I am obsessed with this gown, it is so gorgeous from its silhouette to its color. Jessica is just perfection in it.
-Elizabeth Banks in Elie Saab at the premiere of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" in Berlin.
This gown is liquid silver.  Its beautiful craftsmanship & Elizabeth's styling make for a total knockout of a look.
Pictures from

-Camila McCounaughey at the GQ Man of the Year Party in Los Angeles.
The nude hue of this dress is so chic & goes so well with Camila's skin tone.  The wrap style is a classic, but the bold shoulders make it unique.
-Ashlee Simpson at BandFuse: Rock Legends video game launch in West Hollywood.
Ashley is getting in on the leather trend with this maroon frock.  The dress's shape & Ashlee's simplistic styling make for an enviable outfit.

On Tuesday I mentioned that coconut oil was one of my "Must Haves of the Moment".
Well I found another reason to love it even more: you can use coconut oil as a face wash.  Since the temperatures dropped my skin started to get really dry & I was looking for a more gentle way to wash my face with something I already had.  I stumbled across a blog with a post on how to wash your face with coconut oil & had to try it.  I've done it two nights in a row & so far it's all good, but I am going to do a post about it in the next few weeks to share how to do it & what my results are!

This weekend is initiation for our pledges & I am so excited for them!  This is such an amazing experience & I cannot wait to watch them see what goes on.  I have such great memories from my initiation.  Here is a picture from it:
I have made so many amazing friends through this experience & I hope that our newest members love Alpha Gam as much as I do.  I'm pumped for this whole weekend & cannot wait for them to be full members!

Since I have initiation on the mind & we have to wear nude shoes I thought I would share some pretty options I found that would be perfect to wear this weekend.
Night Out
Pump / Ankle Strap
Shopping Day
Patent Leather / Leather
Pump / Ankle Strap

I've got you covered for any occasion this weekend!  Bonus: nude shoes go with just about everything!

Last I bring you some music to start your weekend off right.  I'm not Miley's biggest fan, but I cannot get this song out of my head!
