Five on Friday - August 11, 2017

Hey, hey -- it's Friday!  Hope you enjoy my five for this week~

1.  Game of Thrones Makeup Brushes
Do you have a Game of Thrones lover in your house?  This might make the perfect gift - Game of Thrones Makeup Brushes!!  Get a jump on your Christmas shopping and order these today.  Last year I got my daughter-in-law the Harry Potter version and she loved them.  She also loves Game of Thrones.  Wonder how many makeup brushes she needs??

2.  The Glass Castle
This movie is opening today and I'm pretty excited about it.  Our book club read the book years ago and I remember thinking it would make a good movie.  Here's what Rotten Tomatoes is saying about it, "Chronicling the adventures of an eccentric, resilient and tight-knit family, THE GLASS CASTLE is a remarkable story of unconditional love. Oscar (R) winner Brie Larson brings Jeannette Walls's best-selling memoir to life as a young woman who, influenced by the joyfully wild nature of her deeply dysfunctional father (Woody Harrelson), found the fiery determination to carve out a successful life on her own terms."  If you want to read the book before seeing the movie, click HERE to pick up a copy.

3.  Simply Peach Juice
We are in love with this new Simply Peach Juice!  Have you tasted it?  This stuff is made with real peach juice and has a delicious fresh flavor.  Give it a try!

Simply Peach<sub>™</sub>  Juice Drink

4.  Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce
I'm late to the party on this one, but I've been binge watching Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce.  The first three seasons are on Netflix and I have been spending every free moment watching them.  Have you seen it?  


5.  Karma.....

20 Funny Quotes That Remind You That Karma's ALWAYS Watching | YourTango

Have a great weekend!  Eric and I are headed to Paris tomorrow and I will consider it a major win if I'm packed and ready to go before midnight.  Not sure how much blogging I'll be doing while on vacation, but you better believe that I'll have some tales to tell when we get back!!

  11. What a sensational post. The Karma graphic had me laughing so hard my husband asked what was going on. Adorable. I hope the bus makes a few stops here in my neck of the woods. To visit one school administrator above all!

    Thinking those brushes might be perfect for my eldest daughter and the Harry Potter's for my youngest. Will check them out.

    Love peach any and everything. Thanks for the tip.

    And just uploaded/downloaded the Audible narrated version of The Glass Castle. Holding off on the movie in hopes of getting through the book first.

    Really enjoyed this post!

  12. I love those GoT makeup brushes! (I'm a GoT fan, not so much a makeup fan. But i'd totally use those if I had them!)

  13. Oooooh, I just started watching Game of Thrones! Admittedly, these makeup brushes don't mean anything to me yet, but give me a few more binge-watching sessions :) Also I really loved the first two seasons of Girlfriends Guide to Divorce but then it lost me. I'll have to tune in again, it was fun!

    That peach juice sounds delicious! And that movie is def on my list :)

    Hope you have a great week, Penny!! XOXO

  14. Penny, I hope you have a fantastic trip to Paris. I can't wait to see your pictures and reminisce about my own memories from there. :)
