Five on Friday -- September 26, 2014

Hello, Friday!  I'm so glad you're here!  This is going to be an action-packed weekend full of lots of fun.  Tomorrow I'm headed to the Strange Folk Art Show with my friends and on Sunday trekking off to my home town to celebrate my dad's birthday.  So let's start by checking out my Five on Friday.

1.  Scarves
It's the time of year to bring on the scarves.  Here's some cool ways to tie them.  This chick looks like she might strangle herself so be careful if you're following the video at home.

2.  Boots
We want these.  I NEED these.  Of course, these exact boots are way out of my price range so I'm going on a search for some that are similar.  I saw a pair at Marshalls that could have been a twin.  I really hope they are still there.

3.  The Hunger Games:  Mockingjay - Part 1

Tickets go on sale October 29.  Can. Not. Wait.

4.  Acure Brightening Facial Scrub
A sample of this cream arrived in my Birchbox and after one use I immediately ordered a full size one.  I don't know what's in this magic stuff, but my face has never looked better (well, except for when I was younger and didn't have wrinkles).  Highly recommend it.  Here's what Birchbox says about it, "It gently exfoliates and removes dirt and oil, plus stimulates new cell growth for fresh, radiant-looking skin. Pretty soon, we’re looking just as sunny as we feel."  You can get yours here.

  11. Yay for scarves and boots! It's not quite cool enough but I am ready!
    I'm very excited about the new HG movie, and I think my husband is too! He is even preaching a HG-themed sermon series for the next few weeks. He made a cool "trailer" for it -- wanna see?
