Five on Friday - February 26, 2021

Happy Friday!  Boy, this week has flown by!  Heck, not just this week but the whole month!  Are you looking forward to the last weekend of the month?  Let's get it started with my five for today ~

1.  Cheez-It Loaded Popcorn
Popcorn is one of my most favorite things and Cheez-It just took it to a new level!  For a limited time, Cheez-It's loaded popcorn is hitting the shelves.  It's coming in two flavors:  Cheddar and White Cheddar.  They are reporting the cheddar version tastes just like the original Cheez-It flavor in the form of "light and airy" popcorn.  Yes, please!  

2.  Bob Dylan - 1970
Bob Dylan - 1970 is being widely released today!  This three-disc collection was first released in December as part of the Bob Dylan - 50th Anniversary Collection.  One of the highlights is Dylan's studio sit-down with George Harrison.  The collection includes previously unreleased outtakes from the sessions that produced Self Portrait and New Morning.  Can't wait to take a listen to this one!

3.  78th Golden Globes
Sunday night you will find me plopped on the couch with my eyes glued on the TV watching the 78th Golden Globes.  The event is being hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey for the fourth time.  2015 was the last time they hosted.  This year Amy Poehler will be hosting from the Beverly Hilton on the West Coast while Tina Fey will be coming to us from New York's Rainbow Room.  Each year while watching we add several shows to our list of ones we want to see and I'm sure this year will be no different.  I'm also pumped to see Jane Fonda receive the Cecil D. deMille Award.  Will you be watching?

I recently saw an interview with Jamie Kern Lima by Ed Mylett and fell in love with her!  Her book, Believe It, just came out this week and I can't wait to read it.  Here's the summary from Amazon ~
Imagine overcoming the things holding you back, breaking through the barrier of self-doubt and fully becoming the person you were born to be!

In Believe It, Jamie Kern Lima, founder of IT Cosmetics, shares the wild but true story of how a once struggling waitress turned her against-the-grain idea into an international best-selling sensation, eventually selling the company for more than a billion dollars and becoming the first female CEO of a brand in L’Oréal’s 100+ year history. Faced with self-doubt, body-doubt, God-doubt, down to her last few dollars and told “No one is going to buy makeup from someone who has your body”, Jamie reveals for the first time what really went down, how she almost didn’t make it, how she learned to trust herself, and the powerful lessons you, too, can use to go from underestimated to unstoppable.

With radical vulnerability and honesty, Jamie takes you on a journey through deeply personal stories of heartbreak and resilience - including accidentally finding out she was adopted when she was in her 20s and the reverberations this has had on all aspects of her life. Jamie also pulls back the curtain on her fight to change the beauty industry’s use of unrealistic images, on behalf of all the little girls who are about to start doubting themselves, and all of the grown women who still do.

Spellbinding, riveting, with raw vulnerability and down-to-earth warmth, Believe It shakes your soul and shows you that you, too, have what it takes to believe in yourself, trust yourself, and go from doubting you’re enough to knowing you’re enough! Do you have big goals, hopes, and dreams but let rejection get in the way? Do you struggle with feeling like you’re not enough and like success is something that happens to other people, but have a hard time believing it’s possible for you? Do you let past mistakes and failures hold you back? Do you know deep down inside that you were created for more, but somehow still doubt yourself?

In Believe It you’ll discover how to...
    - Overcome self-doubt
    - Gain the courage to take risks and empower yourself and others
    - Tune into and trust your own intuition
    - Let go of your mistakes and insecurities
    - Turn down the volume on your inner critic
    - Handle the rejection, the haters, and the mean girls
    - Boost your confidence
    - Start your dream (and keep going!)
        And much more

​If you’ve ever doubted yourself or felt truly underestimated, this book will inspire a new kind of belief and confidence in you and your dreams!

5.  Ever have a feeling...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Taking down Valentine's decorations and putting up St. Patrick's Day decor is on the agenda for me.  Pop in next week to see what other things kept us busy this weekend.
