The Friday Five

Happy Friday!  This week absolutely flew by. With huge deadlines at work, I felt like I was scrambling to wrap up at 5:00 each day.  Last weekend was busy with a visit to my grandparents in Winchester, Virginia, so I’m hopeful that this weekend will be a bit more low-key…But even so, full of fun!  Have a great weekend, everyone!

Five on Friday / Oh Hey, Friday!

One | While we were visiting my grandparents last weekend, they showed us this old 45 record-meets love note. Pappa gave it to Gran when they were still dating — it’s a 45 of their song. Notice the note: “To Eleanor, From Tom, With Love.” So unbelievably sweet, and I love that they’ve saved it all these years.

IMG_20150313_193559Three | I got my March Ipsy Bag this week an I am absolutely loving it. I have two products left to try, but after that, I can’t wait to share a full review. I am really enjoying getting these bags — I may not put my subscription on hold!

IMG_20150317_072815Four | This week I received my copy of On the Merits of Unnaturalness.  I received this for free from Bloomsbury Publishing after sending in a copy of my e-receipt for preordering The Mime Order. This little pamphlet accompanies the Paige Mahoney world, and I am beyond thrilled to have received Copy No. 271.


Five | I’m currently on the hunt for a wrinkle prevention cream and I’m considering purchasing RoC Multi Correxion Lift Anti-Gravity Night Cream.  I’m trying to be proactive about preventing my skin from aging. I do the other things I’m supposed to do — wear sunscreen, drink water, etc — but I think that it’s worth trying this out.
