Friday

Five On Friday ::: Featuring a New Makeup Fave.

It's the third best day of the week (Saturday and Sunday are in prime position, and in that order). Now, let's celebrate with some Five on Friday link-up fun!

The weather here in North Carolina is just on point. I mentioned the other day that I've enjoyed reading outside when I get home from work. Yesterday was no exception. I'm currently reading Dakota Blues by Lynne M. Spreen (here) and it's pretty entertaining so far. I downloaded this book for free the other day thanks to a blog I follow, Fantabulously Frugal, who posts free and cheap Kindle books almost daily (along with other deals). I just love those posts -- it's a nice way to balance out the "Oh I NEED this $12 Kindle book NOW" purchases that I also happen to make from time to time. :)

I follow Mrs. Lilien on Instagram (@mrslilien) and I just love her updates. She's the cutest. I spotted the below papaya enzyme peel recipe on Pinterest from her blog and I'm intrigued! Have you ever tried any homemade peels or facials?

I am so, so, SO x 1000 excited to rave about this product. I purchased Maybelline's Color Tattoo eyeshadow in Tough as Taupe the other day. It is on special at Walmart for less than $5 (here). Walmart is not very tolerable in general but you can't deny that the prices are sometimes worth it. Expect a full review of this amazing eyeshadow next week along with pictures of me on the way to work, on the way home from work, and right before bedtime. It's remarkable.

Halloween has officially arrived at our home. We have decorated the indoors and outdoors. I'll be sharing photos as we wrap up just a few more details, but I can't forget to mention this adorable needlepoint pillow I found at Michaels! It was $14.99 and 40% off (no coupon needed this past week). How adorable!

I was in Old Navy the other day when I saw this sweatshirt (currently on sale for $8.00, down from $20). Loved it. I will positively live in this during the chilly months. And what a steal! My store didn't have my size, so I hopped online. I ordered an XS and a S -- not sure which one I'll like, but I can return the other one in store which is so easy.



I think a lot of you know how this works but if you are new to the party, please join this link-up along with me and my beautiful co-hostesses -- DarciNatasha, and Christina. Playing along is simple!  Just write a post about five things on your mind today, anything goes really, post the logo below on your blog, and then enter your post address below in the link-up section. It's a great way of meeting new friends and getting more eyes on your cute blog!

  3. Love Old Navy. We haven't decorated for fall or Halloween yet. Hopefully, we will get around to it this weekend. I agree that Walmart is not very tolerable, especially a few here in the QC.

  5. Very intrigued about that Color Tattoo eyeshadow! I'm running low on my Mac Bare Study paint pot that I use for my primer - do you think this could work as a dupe?

    Have a wonderful weekend!! xoxo
    PS...where's the glass of wine with your book? ;)

  13. I die for the "Spooky" pillow! So cute!! =) Isn't this October weather an instant mood changer?! Perfect for your old navy sweatshirt! Love your favorites this week. Have a great weekend!

  14. I saw that sweatshirt the last time I was in Old Navy and loved it. I'll have to get it now with it being such a good price! Thanks for sharing!

    I also love that "spooky" pillow, our house is fully decorated for Halloween too. :)

  15. I use raw honey (organic) in the shower twice a week. Just rub it on and let it sit for the 10-20 minutes while you do everything else, and then rinse! It gently exfoliates (because of the honeycomb bits) and balances my skin tone out so nicely. Plus it's all natural :)

  16. Too funny I was randomly in Old Navy yesterday and I had that sweatshirt in my hand! But I put it down because I had already gone a little overboard in my retail shopping yesterday!
