5 on Friday



I've got my cooking class tonight and tomorrow we're heading to the Firefly distillery for some oysters and sweet tea vodka of course!

CVS has now become my favorite drugstore. They have officially banned the sell of tobacco starting October 1st. I hate cigarettes with a strong passion and being a nurse I see all the effects it has on your body so this makes me extremely happy. Unfortunately cigarettes are a HUGE industry and CVS is going to be taking an annual loss of around 2 billion dollars by no longer selling cigarettes and other tobacco products. Since that's a big loss they're going to need all the help they can get. So only buy all your drugstore goods from a CVS to support this movement! You can read more about it here.

Did you guys happen to catch Kelly Ripa yesterday on Kelly and Michael? She lost a Super Bowl bet to Michael and had to come to work barefaced, on the day George Clooney was a guest. As a girl who rarely leaves the house without makeup on, I have to give her MAJOR props. She looked great but still, us girls know that makeup is a godsend and I'm sure with all those lights even Michael wears makeup. On the plus side I'm sure being ready in 10 minutes was a nice change!

I know we're kind of late in the game but Theo and I started to watch New Girl last night and loved it! We've been looking for a show we'd both like and after hearing everyone rave about the show we decided to watch an episode, which turned into 6. It's so easy to watch 20 minute episodes than 1 hours ones. I'm just so glad we now have a show we can watch together.

Daniel Rainn is my new favorite brand for "cheap" blouses. I say cheap because they aren't $100+ like some of my other favorite brands. I have a few blouses by Daniel Rainn that I've found at TJ Maxx/Marshall's for $20! They fit like a much more expensive blouse than that. Here are some of my favs:

Design Chic has become my guilty pleasure design blog. They somehow find the most gorgeous pictures. They're a mother/daughter duo who aren't designers just have a passion for beautiful things. I love checking their blog everyday to see what gorgeous images they've found. I'm obsessed with this gorgeous baby room seen on their blog

  4. So happy to see CVS isn't selling tobacco either. I'm hoping that other businesses follow suit.

    I would DIE if I were Kelly Ripa. Going on national TV with no makeup on would be SO hard!

    I also really need to check out that blog. That nursery is to die for!

  5. Props to CVS ... that is a huge step and I commend them for it! I'm typically a Walgreens or Rite Aid shopper but this really has me rethinking my loyalty to them.

  11. I give kudos to CVS - however I can't stray from Target, even after they hacked mt card! Love Daniel Rainn tops, I find that Nordstrom Rack has quite a good selection of them.

  13. That blouse I wore to Al Di La is Daniel Rainn - love that brand! Kelly is brave, gotta hand it to her. I SO want to go to that oyster roast tomorrow, weather permitting! Will text you if we head that way

  14. Ooo a cooking class?? That sounds so fun! Can't wait to hear about it!
    That's awesome about CVS, I work for Ohio State University and as of January 1st this year we became a completely smoke/tobacco free campus! :)

    Have a great weekend!! xx

  17. New Girl is the BEST!! It's one of my faves. I'm so happy about CVS and can't believe they're willing to take such a huge loss but I really think it will help them in the long run. I think Kelly had to have some foundation or tinted moisturizer on even though she said she didn't. I just don't believe she was completely bare. I have a few Daniel Rainn blouses that I picked up from Nordstrom Rack and I love them. I actually was able to wear them for a lot of my pregnancy last yr which was great.

  18. OMG, I don't even leave the house in a hurry without throwing a little mascara on! Good for Kelly! Also, that nursery. Not helping my baby fever ;)
