Five on Friday - June 12, 2015

It's Friday, it's Friday!!  Don't you just LOVE summer weekends?!?  I've been patiently waiting for this one to get here because my friend, Linda, and her daughter, Kelsey, are coming for a visit!!  Woo Hoo!!  Well, Kelsey is coming to work.  She is the best little organizer around and I'm hiring her to get a few of my messes cleaned up.  Bless her soul, she has no idea what she's getting herself into.

Before I get too far into Friday, I want to share my five for this week:

1.  Big Sexy Hair Powder Play
It's summer in St. Louis and with the heat comes the humidity.  And with the humidity, I have the worst hair known to man.  Seriously, I have BAD hair.  I have no clue what's in this magic dust, but I'm telling you it works.  If you want to add a little volume to your do, you should definitely check this stuff out.

2.  Jurassic World
It's finally opening!!  The movie Jurassic World opens today and as much as the first movie scared me so much I almost peed my pants, I still want to go back for more.  Watching Chris Pratt on the big screen for two hours and ten minutes -- yes, please.

3.   Orange is the New Black
It's time to make sure your Netflix is streaming because Season 3 of Orange of the New Black starts TODAY!  It's a good thing I have guests coming today or I would be plopped in front the TV for a binge-watching weekend.  Piper, I've missed you!  Anyone else a fan?

4.  Beach Glass
Check this out -- this glass will float in water AND you can stick it in the sand.  Perfect combination!!  Pour up to 12 ounces of your liquid beverage of choice in this machine-washable acrylic baby and you're set.  They are available HERE.  What a cool gift these would make for someone who has a pool or visits the beach.

5.  Let's live.

I'm hoping to finish some new touches in our guest bedroom today.  If that happens, I'll be sharing the reveal on the blog next week.  On Monday I'll also be here sharing my weekend recap.  With me and Linda on the loose, that could be an interesting read (unless we both sit on the couch and binge watch Orange is the New Black).  We will definitely be doing some "living".  Have a great weekend!

Linking up with:


  1. Serious wine cups there Penny. I would love a pair of those especially for the beach/sand. Where do you come up with these finds? My daughter's hair does the same thing in the heat and humidity. Will pass that product onto her. Here's wishing you a fun girls weekend with your friend. Can't wait to hear all about it.

  2. I am beyond excited to watch the new season of Orange is the New Black!!!

  3. Haha, those wine glasses! Very clever...I love it!

    Send Kelsey to my house my house next ;) Have fun with your friends this weekend!


  4. I just recently started using Powder Play and I love it! I used to tease my hair and now I don't because it works so well!

  5. So excited for OITNB!!!!!! We have to pace ourselves when we watch it! Thanks so much for linking up! Amanda ~ Meet @ the Barre

  6. I keep hearing about Orange Is The New Black but I have never watched it...I might have to start! :)

  7. Umm..that beach glass...genius! Thanks for sharing!

  8. I told Keith that its good he's off work today or I'd be in front of the TV binge watching OITNB as well! He looked at me like I was crazy but I said dude if you watched it, you'd understand!!

    Have a great weekend - stay cool!

  9. We have two of the same favorites this week (OITNB and Chris Pratt/Jurassic World)! Those wine glasses are awesome!

  10. LOVED Jurassic World ~~~ LOVED Chris Pratt (duh) ~~~ only movie I've ever gone to see on opening day. Definitely one you have see in a theater. I wish I could stomach 3D, but I had to settle for 2D. Sucks having a weak stomach!

    I love Powder Play too, I use it just about every day for my very fine, very flat hair!
