Five on Friday
Linking up once again with The Good Life blog for some Friday randomness:
Valentine’s Day: I love holidays and celebrations. We’re staying in this year due to another (!) round of snow, but the day can still be fun! I treated myself to pink hot chocolate with breakfast (I successfully passed on the heart-shaped donut at Kroger) and hope to receive a bouquet of wine later. Hope everyone has a wonderful and festive day!
Birchbox: For those of you out of the loop, Birchbox is a $10.00 monthly subscription box of samples and full-sized products shipped to your door (around 4-5 items in each box). I’m not 100% satisfied every month, but I’ve discovered numerous makeup and skincare products. It’s a treat considering the only things I receive via mail are bills. It’s an inexpensive and exciting way to try new things!
Redecorating: I want to spruce up the house and might tackle a couple projects this weekend. I plan to repaint the guest room and repurpose an old vanity into a desk so I can have a small office. I’m a terrible painter and have zero patience. I can visualize the finished product, but mostly envision a lot of wine and threats on Jason’s life during the process. Before Pinterest, I’d never execute home projects. Pinterest ain’t nothin’ but the devil.
Jergens Overnight Repair Nightly Restoring Moisturizer: The adult version of Johnson’s Nighttime Lotion. I keep it on my nightstand and apply every night before bed. I love the clean smell! It can be purchased anywhere Jergens products are sold.
Ulta: Where my money goes to die. While I’m also a lover of Sephora, Ulta sells a ton of budget-friendly brands. They offer buy one, get one 50% off promotions on many products (including ones you can buy at drugstores) and almost always have a coupon offer. I hit the jackpot this week when I purchased three items and only spent $7.00. And, like Sephora, they offer a points reward system and include free samples with all orders. There’s a rumor they’re opening a location in our town… goodbye, paycheck.
Have a fantastic Valentine’s Day and weekend!
