High Five for Friday!
I’m sharing the highlights of my week… five to be exact! I love the idea of focusing on five little things that made me happy… definitely a fun way to recap the week and and stay grateful.
1 – New purse. I was lured into Naturalizer when I saw a 70% off sale, and while I didn’t find any shoes I did find a great purse! I’ve been on the hunt for a crossbody that’s just a bit bigger, so I can still keep my hands free but not always wrestling with my wallet and planner. So far I’m super happy with my new bag – a little more wiggle room is nice!
2 – Harry Potter marathon. We found the eight-movie set on sale recently, so a marathon has been on my mind. Perfect excuse for a lazy weekend! We watched movies #1-3 on Saturday but I fell asleep during movie #4, so we finished it up on Sunday. The Golden Globes delayed our plans to keep going, but there’s always next weekend!
3 – Potluck. My book club always does a potluck in January as a delayed holiday party. I’m lame just like last year and didn’t make anything – I just brought store-bought dip and toasted pita. It was fun to get together again to talk books and eat lots of good food!
4 – Once Upon a Time sampler. The OUAT mystery sampler premiered last week and it’s been so much fun stitching the first little bit! Each month has a different fairy tale theme, and for January Snow White is doing some laundry with the dwarves… too cute! I had lots of stitching time this weekend during the HP marathon and the Golden Globes. (Also, the GG: loved it! Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were hilarious as hosts, and I always love all the fun fashion on the red carpet!)
5 – New makeup. I’ve been running low on foundation and looking for a change, so I searched a few of my favorite blogs for a new recommendation and went with Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Light (per the Small Things blog). I really like it! Smooth and blendable but still lightweight. While we were in Union Square, we stopped by the new fancy Walgreens for a slushee (Sam’s request) and I noticed that they carry theBalm cosmetics – I got this Hot Mama blush in a Birchbox and really love it, so I picked up a full size. I love new makeup!
