Five On Friday

It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join along!

Remember, all you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add our logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools below. Easy, and a great way to find new blogs and be found. :)

Cheers and hurray because this is the last FoF as "A. Liz Adventures"! After blogging under the same name for such a long time, I am definitely excited for a change.

'cause, you know, drinking? cheers?)

And again, to all of you who took my blog survey recently, I am so happy to see that you LOVE our Five On Friday posts and enjoy reading a bit about everything going on in my life. A smidge of this, a smidge of that, as my tagline says.

Get motivated with inspiring quotes to make you kick today in the butt on www.ddgdaily.com:

Okay, I have two kid-related deals to pass along to you. First of all, do you have a Kid to Kid nearby (here's a store locator)? Well, I went in to one right before Christmas, and I was looking in their book section. I found a totally brand new Pinkalicious book -- the pages hadn't been touched. Well, you better believe I snatched it up for Camille ... she loves that series! The cashier asked me if I had a book club card with them, and if not, would I be interested? Instead of (typically) saying no, I said yes, and she said "okay, then you don't owe us a thing ... you get that book for free!". Apparently you get one book a month that is priced $1.99 or less with your little stamp card. So, join that free VIP  book club!


And secondly, I don't know if you log your Pampers Rewards like I do (seriously every single code I get, I enter!), but if you save yours up, you can get 6 months of Highlights High Five magazine for 1700 points. This magazine is seriously sooooo cute and Camille loves them. I keep one in the back pocket of the passenger seat of my car and she loves "reading a magazine" when we drive. The other day she started laughing hysterically about a drawing of a cat on a bicycle. How cute. It's geared towards kids age 2-6. If you don't do Pampers Rewards, you can also find a 12-month subscription HERE on Amazon.

Beauty stuff. I had a few people say on my blog survey (open thru 12/31) that they were curious about the hair vitamins and whether I liked them. I used SugarBearHair vitamins (on Amazon here) and took them the entire month. I did feel like my baby hair regrowth from postpartum hair loss got better, but I had no way of actually knowing whether it was from the vitamins or just... you know, patience and time. Being that a month of these cost $33, and I personally didn't love the texture of the gummies, I decided not to continue taking them.

And mascara. I get asked a lot what mascara I use. I curl my lashes with the Shiseido eyelash curler, followed by a coat of the Superstar primer (step one) on top and bottom lashes, and then 2 coats of Voluminous Extra Volume Collagen mascara in Blackest Black. My favorite combo for thick lashes!

I am so excited that my birthday is around the corner! New Years Day. Thirty five ...  whatcha got for me. Bring it on!

My goals for the blog in 2017 are: introduce my new blog name, potentially have a blog background/layout change, comment/engage more on others' blog posts if I really love them, add in some more Roll Call Mondays, reduce the Saturday Sip and Shops, take off the ads that cover up text and images, better quality photographs, add some "frugal mom who still wants to look cute" style posts, more makeup and beauty posts, more bargain/deal hunting posts, more posts about what we're doing with The Tipsy Bunny, and potentially adding some You Tube videos to the mix to make my blog more dynamic and personable.

Love your life: pastel, flowers, quote, love, words, she loved her life and it loved her right back, happy thought.:


TGIF y'all, and hope you will join in on Five on Friday this week! Cheers to the weekend!
