Five on Friday 4/18



It's Friday again!  Nick and I both have the day off work today and it's nice to have an early start to the weekend (let's just pretend I won't be working a 12 hour shift tomorrow).  I absolutely love Easter weekend and can hardly believe it's already here.  I've stocked up on Easter candy, carefully chosen my outfit, planned our brunch menu and am SO ready to welcome cheese back into my life!!!  But most of all, we are excited to celebrate the life and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the best thing to ever happen to our world.  Whatever your plans are for the weekend, I hope it's a wonderful one!  Here's what's been going on this week....

+ I really never thought I'd say this after using Benefit's They're Real for the last two years buuuut I have a new favorite mascara!  I tried Bare Mineral's Lash Domination on a whim (it was part of a package I bought) and I am officially obsessed.  It thickens, volumizes and lengthens my lashes and I haven't had any problem with smudging.  I haven't even picked up my tube of They're Real since trying Lash Domination.  Actually, I've been trying out a bunch of Bare Minerals products recently and have nothing but good things to say... but that deserves it's own post!



+ If you aren't watching Chrisley Knows Best, do yourself a favor and start.  I binge watched all of the episodes this past week and I was laughing out loud through each one.  Todd is so ridiculous!  


+ I've always had problems with my old Twitter account working on my phone so I went ahead and made a new one for the blog!  Follow along with me @ ktelizabethblog!


+ I need your advice.  I've been wanting to try a couple products from the Kerastase haircare line but woof, are they expensive.  I've heard that people buy Kerastase on Amazon to save money and I've also seen it at my local Nordstrom Rack for a discounted price.  What I'm wondering is.. why are they cheaper?  Is it because they're expired - do haircare products even expire? - or are these counterfeit products?  Let me know if you have any experience/advice with this.  Being that the "discounted" prices are still in the $30 range, I don't want to just throw my money down the drain - I'd rather spend the few extra dollars and get the real thing.  BUT, if these discounted prices are legit, obviously I'd rather save the money!  You see my dilemma here... so tell me what you know.

 
+ I loved sharing and learning lots of new tips and tricks for meal planning this past Monday!  If you missed it check the post out HERE and make sure to stop back this coming Monday for a light spring recipe - Lemon Chicken Pasta.


Have a blessed weekend!

  1. I love Easter weekend as well but bummer I totally have to work today :-( Chrisley is one of my favorite addicting shows right now as well! I am all about Bare Minerals products but haven't had a chance to try this mascara yet I'll definitely be on the lookout!

  2. Chrisley knows best has become my new obsession too! I DVR it and can't wait to watch it when i come from work! I can't believe it hasn't caught on with as many ppl yet. They're going to start airing it on E! So I'm sure that'll help. Have a great long weekend!

  6. So, I love your twitter page. Also one time a hair dresser used all these great products on me...I have very unruly curly hair that I have to tame..and I was all on board and then they rang me up...and I put every keratise product back. They're all amazing but they're all $$$$. Also, if you switched mascara allegiences this is huge and I might have to try that. Finally, I echo what P!nky said.

  8. Yay for a day off! That pasta looks soooo good- I love peas and they're something I never buy-- can't wait for the recipe! I've always wondered the same thing about discounted products-- but I have no answer for you so I'm interested to see if anyone has any info! Happy Easter weekend!

  23. I just made a new Twitter account for my blog too! I just added yours :)

  25. I have heard so much about Chrisley Knows Best - I need to check it out!

  26. I used bare minerals for years but my face started breaking out so I stopped but I've determined to try it again because I loved it. Todd and Julie are from my hometown and I worked with Julie's mom for a few years after I graduated college. Crazy to think they have their own show now!

  27. Happy Easter to you! I totally need to get back on the Twitter bandwagon - I hardly ever check it anymore and I don't even know why?! Oh Chrisley - that show cracks me up. It is so crazy!

  28. I'm still impressed with the "no cheese for 40 days thing" - wow! Might have to try out that mascara...but I tell you I'm still hooked on the Loreal kind. It's one of my fave drug store finds and I haven't found another I like better...so maybe I shouldn't try it, the $7.50 price tag is pretty awesome!

  29. Chrisley Knows Best is HILARIOUS! My mouth stays open the whole time, because I just can't believe the things that come out of Todd's mouth! He is looney!
