#1. First things first… I bought my first candy corn of the season!! It felt like a pretty big deal, because I love it so much! :) That’s happiness (and fall) in a bag, my friends!
#2. Want to know what else made me happy? This meal from Panera! I had the You-Pick-2 option and chose the BBQ chicken salad (obviously) and the butternut squash soup. Sooooo good!
I’m pretty sure that I could eat Panera every single day and not get sick of it…
The company was pretty amazing too, I must say! :) Love my sistah!
#3. Apparently, it’s possible to bargain shop for nail polish!! I was at Sephora the other day to pick up a high-quality topcoat, and the cashier suggested I take a peak at their clearance section. There was a bunch of nailpolish on sale for $2 or $3 a bottle!!
I ended up buying a topcoat by Formula X for $3, a black Formula X polish, and two Sephora brand nail-polishes for $2 each!! Score! I’ve never used Formula X before but have always wanted to…
Because I tried it for the first time today, I can’t comment on how long it lasts. But I will say that it went on really nicely, so I’m a fan so far!
#4. Because I love trying new makeup products (but I rarely want to dish out money on a product that I’m not entirely sure I’ll like), I might sign up for Ipsy. For $10 month, recipients receive a small pouch of about 5 sample (sometimes full) sized products to try. (Birchbox sounds pretty great too, but those are more body products – like lotions and such. And since I already like the lotions and body-care products that I use now, I don’t think that is quite what I’m looking for).
I think it’d be fun to try new products, especially since it would only add up to a little more than $2 a week. Have any of you ever tried Ipsy? And if so, what are your thoughts??
#5. I’ve gone to the dark side… No, really, I bought yet another pair of dark flats. ;) As I’ve mentioned before, I have officially given up on heels for the duration of this pregnancy (although I still manage to wear my cowboy boots on occasion). I bought a pair of comfy, brown flats on sale for $20 to add to the black pair and red pair that I already own.
Even if I miss wearing heels on occasion, I do have to admit that flats are pretty adorable too! :)
And THAT is my Friday Five!
What are you up to this weekend?? :)
