Friday Five - Random Pics

Happy Friday Loves!  I haven't been blogging because I've been caught up in my Fifty Shades of Grey books and then I finished them and was a little upset for a few days :c(

I'm okay now though, so don't worry about me! haha : )

Here are a few random pics that I'm sharing with you for my Friday Five!
That would be my yummy strawberry salad I just finished for lunch.  It's just a bagged salad I got from Costco (parisian mix) and then I cut up some strawberries and threw on top.  Added some Rasberry Vinaigrette, delish.

This is my essie a cut above pink sparkles with some gold polish I had.  LOVE the color combo!

My breakfast - greek yogurt with a little muesli sprinkled on top.  Healthy and Yummy!  Don't you just love the colors of the tulips, that coral and yellow is so pretty!

My first attempt at making a Diaper Motorcycle for my soon to be 10th niece or nephew. We're doing a small family sprinkle for my SIL on Easter Sunday.  I thought it turned out really cute! 

Lastly, that's ma monogram........on my lunchbox : )  I'm obsessed with coral and minty green/blue and animal print?  Yes, please!

Have a great weekend ya'll!!!

Teen Vogue Birchbox

Hello Lovelies!

I hope everyone had a great weekend, mine went by super fast, as usual.

But lets get to the important stuff now......here's what was waiting for me when I got home from work on Friday! 

 SOO EXCITED!


It came wrapped in special Teen Vogue paper.....and here's what was inside.....


This box is by far my favorite box I've received so far...however I've only been doing Birchbox since January.

So here's what I got ---
~Twirl fagrance by Kate Spade  - this scent is fruity and flowery.  I really like it and it's the perfect scent for Spring!

~ A full size bottle of essie luxeffects  - the color I got was a cut above and I have to say that I was really excited about this becuase it's a full size bottle not a sample size like I thought I'd get!  I'm going to be painting my nails tonight (probably only going to do the glitter on the ring fingers though)

~Twistband hair tie  - I've been wanting to try these for a while.  I like how it doesn't pull your hair and it came in a fun orange color.

~K√©rastase Elixer Ultime - This elixer smells yummy and makes my hair silky and smooth.  Really like it.

~ tarte LipSurgence lip tint - I think this was another full size product which I was really impressed with.  This goes on so smooth and has a nice mint smell.  I've been wearing it with lipgloss because it has a matte finish.  This color is called Lucky and while I don't normally wear color quite this pink, I'm more of a beige girl, I'll definitlely put this in rotation.

So there you go. Loved this box and I can't wait to see what other people received in their boxes!  Do share!

Fifty Shades of Grey

Happy Friday Friends!

I've been on a little blogging break, but not on purpose.  Last Friday I was watching the Today Show and saw this news thread about this new book Fifty Shades of Grey and I was very intrigued.  So I went on to Amazon to read the first three chapters and lets just say, Hook.Line.Sinker and DONE!  I was sold!  This book draws you in immediately and let's just say it's hot!

This is actually a trilogy and I'm already on the second book.  So the old blog has been hearing crickets while I've had my face buried in these books.  I haven't even been on Pinterest, GASP!  Pinterest is my latest obsession....until now.

Has anyone else started reading these books?  What do you think of them!?  I'm obsessed, but in a good way!

p.s. These books are definitely not intended for young adult audiences and I would not recommend anyone under the age of 18 (maybe 21) reading them.
