It’s Friday! I don’t know about all of you, but this week FLEW by for me! Which was good and bad, really. Good, because, yay for the weekend! Bad, because it means I was crazy busy at work and I feel like I barely got anything done. *sigh* Such is life, sometimes.
Anyway, since it’s been a bit since I did some Five on Friday, I thought I would share some things I’ve been digging lately! Ready? Away we go!
numero uno. We got new door knobs! I’m so excited! We currently have a mixture of truly ugly 80/90s brass handles (mainly on the main floor, but also in the master bedroom), and then silver handles on all the other bedrooms. The silver ones are nice, but we tend to lean more towards oil rubbed bronze. We bought egg shaped ones for the old house which I absolutely LOVED (especially since it seemed to go with the character of the 1945 house).
For this house, the bedrooms all have “wave” style lever handles. I love the look, so I looked for them in oil rubbed bronze and – SUCCESS!
Another fun fact? They come from Amazon! They are a great price, have really good reviews, and now that we have them in hand, I can attest they are really outstanding quality.
I’m taking some before and after pics with the good camera which I’ll share with some more house updates in a post next week, but here is the picture from Amazon:
numero dos. Anyone fans of Philosophy brand products? I am addicted to Purity facial cleanser. I buy it in the MEGA size bottles directly from the Philosophy website to get the best deal. Right now they have their Friends and Family Sale where you can save 25%!
It’s about time for me to stock up again so I’ll definitely be heading over soon! 🙂 Don’t forget to use Ebates to get 5% cash back! Sale ends June 19, so hurry!
numero tres. So I totally binged Orange is the New Black in like 3 days. It was an amazing season! I really loved it (clearly! ha!). But now I can’t believe I have to wait another FULL YEAR for the next season. I also totally do this every year…you’d think I’d know better by now!
I also loved The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt! It’s ridiculous but hilarious! And now we are a few episodes into 13 Reasons Why. I knew a little about the show before we started, but it’s already much different than I thought it would be. It’s a bit addicting!
Any other good summer shows out there? I think we may subscribe to HBO for a bit so we can watch Big Little Lies since I heard such good things!
numero quatro. I’m making dessert for a family get together this weekend and I’m debating what to make. I’d love to whip up a batch of cookies, or cupcakes, but I also desperately don’t want to turn the oven on! ha!
I’m thinking some lost hours scouring Pinterest is in my future. 😉
numero cinco. I saved the best for last! I’m still doing the Beachbody program with Shakeology and it’s been amazing seeing and feeling the results! So, I did something pretty daring for me – I bought a bikini! Like a for real, bikini.
I thought once it came I would come up with some reason why I didn’t like it, but I can honestly say I felt pretty darn awesome once I put it on!
It took me a while to find one that was cute and that would give me proper support, if you know what mean. 😉 Color me surprised when the swimsuit I ended up buying from Old Navy. I didn’t think they would sell something that gave the right kind of support, but the reviews were pretty good so I decided to take a leap of faith and buy it (it helps that I knew I could return it!). Plus, 2% cash back at Ebates!
Since we just put up a new pool (one that can be taken down each season), I can’t wait to wear it outside where people can actually see me! 😉
Happy Friday and have a wonderful Father’s Day Weekend, everyone!
