Five on Friday - August 29, 2014

Well, if you wanted to get something done in August and you haven't done it, you better get on it because this month is winding down!  This month has flown by and I have to admit, I'm looking forward to Fall.  Don't get me wrong, I've had a great summer.  But there's something about Fall that's comforting to me.  I'll tell you what else is comforting -- that today is Friday and I have a three day weekend comin'!  Here's this week's Five on Friday.

1.  About Me
I finished my "About Me" page.  Pop over and give it a glance. 

2.  Giveaway
This is the very first giveaway I've been a part of!  If you'd like to participate, here's the details.
For starters we are handing out $180.
That's a lot of moola that I surely wouldn't turn my nose up to.

 Secondly, the winner will get to choose any pair of darling earrings from Emma & Sophia.
Yes please.

And thirdly, a Big Spender ad space on A Fresh Start on a Budget's blog.
Not too shabby.

Check out all of the darling gals below and get entered!!

3.  Apothic Dark
My favorite seasonal wine is back at Sam's!!  One wine critic writes, "Heady nose. Mostly smokey black raspberries with a hint of chocolate and blueberries. Medium finish, medium minus tannins, light sweet aftertaste. Very tasty.".  My personal review is, "Tastes great.  I love it.  Two thumbs up!".  It's under $10 -- if you like red wine you should consider picking up a bottle.

4.  Mascara
I had a bad case of "I deserve this" on Saturday when I was out and about running errands, which led me to purchase this new Urban Decay lush lash mascara.  At $20, it's more expensive than I usually spend on mascara.  I've been using it all week and I can honestly say I'm in love.  Hey, if people on Bachelor in Paradise can fall in love in 24 hours, I'm entitled to love this mascara after using it for a week.  Doesn't smudge or leave black goo in the corner of your eye.  Anyone else have a mascara they can't live without?

5.  Watch out!
Some People Pictures, Photos, and Images for Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Twitter
 Have a great holiday weekend everyone!  Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you back here next week.
