Five on Friday 1/24


Everytime I start a Friday post, I get the Rebecca Black song stuck in my head.  Please tell me you know which one I'm talking about.  "It's Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday!"  You're welcome! 

It's been a long week, mostly due to the fact that I think my computer is dunzo.  It seems to have gotten a virus that is slowing the whole thing down and making it impossible to do anything on it.  The computer is 6 years old so I knew it was on it's last leg but I wasn't quite ready to spend the money on a new one yet!  I've been backing all my files up like crazy this week and running virus scans like it's my job.  Nothing seems to be working, unfortunately.

+ I picked up the "holy grail" of all foundations last week - Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk - and I'm loving it!  This stuff is as good as everyone says it is.  There are a million shades and I think this is the best I've ever been color matched.  It goes on flawlessly and stays put all day.  The price tag is a little hard to swallow ($60) but it takes so long to go through a bottle of foundation that I figure it's worth it.  The things I tell myself to justify purchases...


+ We are getting new cell phones this weekend!  I am so excited.  I'm getting the iPhone 5S but Nick hasn't made up his mind yet.  I'm obsessed with my iPhone, couldn't live without it. New computer + new cell phones is going to equal an expensive weekend.  Yikes.


+ I made this Ramen Vegetable Soup that I found on Pinterest on Wednesday and holy crap, was it good.  From start to finish, this recipe took me about 35 minutes to make which I think is impressive given how delicious it was!  It's a perfect winter week night meal.  Plus, if you like sriracha like we do, you'll love this stuff.


+ I'm obsessed with this coat.  I got it for Christmas and have been wearing it nonstop since.  It's not the most practical option for our zero degree weather but I'm getting sick of being bundled up in my practically ankle length North Face!


+ The BEST smelling soap!  I've been doing so good at staying away from Bath and Body Works after I did some damage at their Semi Annual Sale in December.. and then I went to work and saw this new soap in our bathroom and it smells amazing.  And how cute are the bottles?!  I will definitely be stocking up on this scent through candles, soap, lotion - you name it!


Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  If you need me, I'll be playing candy crush on my new cell phone, probably making another batch of ramen veggie soup and watching the Bachelor Wedding!  So excited for that!  All wearing my comfy, not so warm coat of course :)

  2. Stopping by from the Five on Friday linkup, you will love your 5S! I've had the gold one for a few months and it's such a great upgrade from my old 4S. Enjoy your weekend!

  4. Cute coat!! I've been dying to try the GA foundation. I think when my current bottle of Dior runs out I might have to fork out the $$ and try it. I'm sure I'll be hooked!

  5. Yummy! That is what that soap looks like!

    YAY new iphones!

  6. So the foundation is really worth all the hype?! It looks like silk in the bottle so I can't even imagine what it feels like on the face!! Bachelor wedding woo hoo - altho I have to say Sean and Catherine are sort of annoying...all they've been talking about is how they want their wedding to feel "sexy" that's just weird!! Hope you have a fab weekend and enjoy all your new toys!

  7. Hey! I am new to your blog - found you via Lauren. I recently purchased a new bottle of foundation as well! I purchased Benefit' oxygen one - so far so good. For some bizarre reason though, I always want to try a new one....and now you have given me a new one to wish for LOL.

  10. I need that soup in my life! Would pair perfectly with our cold wintery day! Totally skipped over that soap when I was there last week and might just have to go back for that one! Have a great weekend!

  11. The coat is super cute- and that's it..I'm taking the plunge and getting that foundation. I need to go to a place that has it in stock versus ordering online though I think!

    1. The foundation is definitely worth it! I got mine at Nordstrom and am so glad I did because color matching is so important if you're going to shell out that kind of $$!

  13. BAHAHAHA ankle length north face. Bless your heart! I'd love to try the foundation, but I don't think I could ever pay $60 for it. MAYBE if I sample it and it is DIVINE I might have to... Have a good weekend! Stay warm!

  14. I upgraded to the iphone5 from the 4 and that was a huge beautiful difference, so I'm sure the 5s will be even better! I advise that you guys both stick with iphones so that you can connect on imessage instead of wasting text messages, plus he'll never get to see all the cute little smileys only iphone users get ;-)

    Happy Friday :)

  15. I love the whole post- I really want to try that foundation too, and the Estee Lauder Double Wear. And now I must try that soap too! Bummer for spending a lot of money this weekend, but it'll be fun to have a new computer and iPhone 5 :) Happy weekend!

    1. I've heard really good things about the Estee Lauder but my skin reacts SO badly to that brand! Makes me sad. Have a good weekend!!

  16. ahh a new phone & computer will be an exciting weekend though! I love the look of the 5s! So sleek! I love that coat too! It's so unique and different from everything else you see and it looks so cozy! And that foundation just sounds like it would feel so nice on the skin! Sometimes you have to make a splurge :)

  17. Loving your new coat! Ha we all must 'justify' certain purchases but in the big scheme of things they're usually worth it, right!? My husband has the iPhone 5 and I'm so jealous - the camera on that thing is WAY better than the 4. Have a great weekend, lady :)

  18. Man that's a tiny bottle of foundation! Is that black thing the whole cap? Yeowza. Glad it's working so well though! I would hope I wouldn't need to use my $32 Benefit 15 hour primer with that thing. And yes, Sean and Catherine. It's finally happening, and now they can bone. Those kids have some will.power. Have a good weekend!

  21. AH! I love that coat and yes, that soap is crazy good smelling! Go for the gold with that iPhone! I almost wish I waited for the 5C to come out but I couldn't quite hang in there. Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm!

  22. Umm those ramen noodles are calling my name! They got rid of the Bath & Body Works near my house (BOO!) but I plan on hitting up the one today by my work. Love their soaps and candles!
