Five On Friday

Five on Friday, let's get right down to business, ladies!

Um, anyone as excited for Sunday night's wedding as I am?! #weddingfreak

Bachelor's Sean & Catherine- People

T W O
One of my favorite stores to visit during my lunch hour is World Market. Joining their Explorer program is totally free and they send you really, really good coupons. My favorite is the birthday coupon ... $10 to use during your birthday month. No minimum purchase.

I went the other day and picked up a candle for $9.99. Well, this bad boy ended up ringing up as $2.50 -- so I went and grabbed three more! Four new candles for mere pennies ... YES.

Please tell me, is anyone watching TLC's new show 90 Day Fiance? I downloaded the first episode for free from iTunes and watched it on my flight home from Vermont last week. I'm sure a good part of it is scripted, but I was so intrigued. The show portrays international couples who only have 90 days to decide if they will marry (using a fiancee visa) or if they will split up and stay in their separate countries. The first episode had me hooked and I can't wait to see more.

I mentioned last week that I recently went to Sephora and picked up my birthday treat ... the item I purchased is the Josie Maran Argan Oil Light. I was torn over whether to go with the regular version or the light version, but I knew I wanted to use it on my face and hair (both of which can't take too much weight) so I went light. I'm so happy I did. In the past week I have absolutely loved using it on my face at night as a moisturizer -- and when I curl my hair in the morning, I use a very small amount -- seriously, like two drops rubbed between my palms -- to smooth down the curls. This stuff is the jam. I went with the small bottle ($14) because, frankly, spending $48 on the larger bottle, which is still small, seemed a bit crazy to me. I'm hooked.

Bring on the weekend! Saturday is busy for me, but all good things, including a girly lunch and wedding dress shopping with a bestie. Plus, Ian and I have fun dinner plans that evening. So ready for the end of the workday!

  15. Hey April! Love your blog and linking up on Fridays with you. Today when I linked my blog something went wrong and my picture isn't showing (#98 on the linky). I can't figure out how to delete and re-enter so I'm hoping if you have a chance you might be able to delete it for me or possibly let me know how to do so from my end? Thank you! Happy weekend!

  16. Your Saturday sounds like so much fun! Also, what a great deal on the candles. :) I love World Market too; they always have such unique things!

    ReplyDelete
  17. oh yes pumped for sunday and monday bachelor nights!! Did you find it creepy how much they talk about wedding night 'activities' though? hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  18. 90 day fiancée is downright entertaining!! Also had no idea Sean's wedding was being televised in Sunday. Have they not been promoting it much? Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am SOOOOOOOOOO excited for Sean and Catherine's wedding!!! I watched a whole special on it yesterday on my flight!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm sure the wedding is going to be so fun to watch - although it's a little weird that Catherine keeps saying how she wants the feel of the wedding to be "sexy" - 90 day fiance is hilarious...i watched one episode when the guy said we bought her a round trip ticket since we're not really sure it will last...ummmm Hope you have a great weekend!

  22. World Market is seriously the best... when the new one opened up in Cotswold, I was so excited! It's easy to go in for one thing and come out with twenty but those candles are a STEAL! Have a fabulous and warm weekend! xo

  23. I definitely caught the first episode of 90-day fiance when Brandon was working late the other night. Such a good guilty pleasure show and I don't feel sooo bad about the world (like I did watching the first 10 minutes of Rich Kids of Beverly Hills).

    ReplyDelete
