Five on Friday

One
My tassel fell off my Kendra Scott necklace and it's lost. I'm devastated. I posted about it as one of my wish list items and Mike surprised me with it a few weeks later. I really really loved it and wore it all the time. Then one day, I went to take it off at the end of the day and the tassel was missing! The little loop that held it had opened just enough for it to have slipped off. It was been several days and I have looked everywhere but have had no success. All the tears.


Two
I actually really enjoyed Ariana Grande on SNL last weekend! I'm usually not a fan of hers but her music is always really catchy. I thought her monologue was hilarious and the skits were really well done as well! And her live songs were alright too.


Three
I made these yummy treats last night and they got a big thumbs up from Mike and myself! I found the recipe on the back of a Reece Peanut Butter minis bag. So good!


Four
Have you heard the news about Instagram? Apparently they are switching from a chronological order to what they think will interest you. What this could mean is that you could miss posts from the little guys, like me! (@fortunatehouseblog) To avoid this, turn on post notifications by clicking on the three little dots in the corner of my profile. I will greatly appreciate it and send each of you a very warm virtual hug!


Ok I'm cutting it short here. I hope you have a very wonderful weekend!

  1. So sad to hear about your KS necklace? Will they replace it? Surely a company that large should have good customer service. Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Oh no! Sorry about your necklace :( Kendra Scott is so great though, and they'll totally fix that for you! The IG thing is going to be tough...hopefully they decide to nix it after the trial period, but I guess we'll find out. Have a great weekend!

  9. Ohh no! So sad about your necklace-- maybe it can be fixed or replaced by KS? If not, at least it still looks cute, even though I know it's not the same. Those peanut butter cookie treats look amazing!! I hope you have a great weekend!

  10. Awwwwwwww, what a bummer about the KS necklace. Mega boo for the tassel falling off :(! I know it doesn't look the same without it but it still is a beautiful piece.

    Ummm I need those snackies right now.

  11. That's so sad that you lost your tassel on your KS necklace! Sometimes they'll do repairs on items that have broken so you might email her, just to see if they'll do something about it!

  12. I love my Kendra Scott necklace so much as well. I am so sorry you lost the tassel. I would be sad too. Thanks for the info on Instagram. I will be sure to post it as well and turn on your notifications.

  13. Bummer!!!! My MK watch died last night :( so I have to replace the battery :/ Can you get a replacement necklace? When my love bracelet broke I was devasted and then the seller told me she wouldn't make it anymore after telling me in December she would make a new one for me

    I thought Ariana Grande was hilarious! Her Shakira impression was really spot on!

    I saw that! I was hoping that it would be in an update and I just wouldn't have to update the app and leave it as is...but if it's something where I have no choice I'll definitely have to do that instead.

  14. That stinks that you lost your tassel! Maybe it will turn up. Fingers crossed!

    And I'm soooo devastated about Instagram making their changes. It's the one social media platform that I feel operates the way I want it to, and now they're going to mess it all up. :o(

  15. Oh no! Hopefully you find the tassel soon - I'd be so bummed about that too! :(

    I'm so annoyed with Instagram. I hope they decide against it.

  16. I hate your necklace broke! Kendra Scott has AMAZING customer service, email/call them and I'm sure they'd be happy to fix it for you.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh no! I'm SO sorry you lost your tassel? Have you thought about contacting Kendra Scott and seeing if their customer service can help you out with getting a new tassel?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ugh, I'm so not excited about this change to Instagram. I really didn't like it when Facebook did it years ago. I didn't know you could do the post notifications thing, though! That's super cool!

    Sorry about losing the tassel! That's such a bummer. :(

  19. Oh no!!! SUCH a bummer about your necklace!!! I wonder if you wrote to Kendra Scott customer service if they would replace it for you? Or wherever you bought it? I know Nordstrom has an amazing exchange/return policy so if you got it there, maybe they can help you?

  20. So sad about your necklace! Same thought on Ariana's guesting on SNL. It was fun to watch.

  21. Your poor necklace! It doesnt look bad but just knowing there was a tassel makes it look sad and plain. Whats up with IG?! Makes me irritated. Im upset that Pinterest did that too though thats old news now.

  22. Such a bummer about your necklace!! I hope that tassel shows up!
    I am so disappointed IG is matching the switch to the algorithm. Another blogger I read made such a good point: I follow the people/shops/etc. because I'm interested in them. I want to see what they're posting. If I didn't like them, I wouldn't follow.

  23. I'd try to go to Kendra Scott with your necklace. They have GREAT customer service! I lost one of my beloved grey slate earrings on my birthday & they gave me "credit" for the one earring I had left & let me purchase a new set for half price. They may have an even better remedy for your tassel. :)
