Five on Friday - July 15, 2016

Happy Friday!  I could definitely use a few extra days this week.  After being gone last weekend and having a super busy week at work, I'm looking so forward to doing a bit of chilling for a couple of days.  We have a few things on the calendar, but there should be some time for sipping wine and finishing the book I've been reading forever.

Here's what I've come up with for my five this week ~

1.  National Give Something Away Day
If you're looking for a little motivation to give some of your stuff away, today is your day!  It's National Give Something Away Day!  If you don't have anything personal you are ready to part with, you could make a donation to a local food pantry or give the person behind you at the Starbuck's their coffee today.  If the mood strikes and you give something away, share it on social media using #GiveSomethingAwayDay.

2.  Meghan Trainor - Thank You
I'm a big Meghan Trainor fan and her new CD Thank You is on the stands.  Want a copy?  Click HERE to purchase it.  It's not like I didn't love her enough already, but when she took a tumble on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, my love for her went even higher.  After doing a complete wipe out and landing flat on the floor, she handled it magnificently!  What a girl!  Did you see the clip of her falling?  It's HERE if you want to (watch to the end).  She's someone I would love to be friends with!  Meghan -- call me, we can hang out! Oh and bring Adele with you.

Thank You

3.  Beautiful Day Wallflowers
Have you smelled the Beautiful Day scent from Bath and Body Works?!?  I'm in love with it.  I usually do a different scent in the summer and this year my go to is Beautiful Day.  It's so refreshing and just right for summer.  I'll go back to my cinnamon and pumpkins in the fall, but for now ~ bring on the beautiful days.

4.  Target Beauty Box
You know how much I love, love, love my Birchbox, right?  Well, I'm equally in love with the Target Beauty Box that arrived at  my house this week.  The Target beauty box is a one time buy and comes out about once a season.  For $7, it's so worth it!  This box contained 7 great products in pretty big sizes.  Love it!

5.  Just kidding...


Have a great weekend!  Eric and I are going to a concert tomorrow night and I'm going to the Cardinals game on Sunday.  I have high hopes to get a recipe post ready for Tuesday.  We'll see how that goes!  See you soon!

  1. National Give Something Away Day?! Sign me up!

  2. I love that today is national give something away today. This inspires me to clean out my closet and make some donations.: )

  3. I am actually in need of some new wall plugins so I will definitely check those out. I recently signed up for the Walmart beauty box and had no clue Target had one. You got some great items! Have a great day!

  4. Meghan Trainer is the cutest--I hadn't seen her performance on Jimmy but just clicked on over and she handled that SO WELL! I'd love to be friends with her too :)

    Hope you have a great weekend, and love the idea of "National Give Something Away Day"!

  5. I hadn't seen Meghan on Jimmy, but she is a great lady and singer and songwriter. It sounds like you have a fun weekend planned, enjoy!

  6. hahaha! You should know Sunday is National Ice Cream Day! You're welcome! ;)

  7. I donated bottles on our last day of VBS so I guess I partook without really thinking about it.

    Have a great weekend!

  8. Love Meghan Trainor! Her music is catchy, she is down to earth, and she let girls know that we come in all shapes & sizes.

  9. I totally laughed at that meme. I've been giving quite a bit of stuff away. I recently moved and needed to downsize, so there are a few charities that got some of my belongings.
