5 on Friday

Yay it's Friday! I've got an extra long weekend, I have Sunday off and I haven't had one off in weeks, so I can finally go to Second Sunday downtown on King St. Trust me when you have to work every Sunday you appreciate one off here and there! Linking up for 5 on Friday!


{ONE}
 On our recent trip to Costco I picked up these veggie burgers. These aren't your typical "veggie" burger which is really just GMO soy and not a single veggie on the ingredient list. These are legit veggie patties and made with all organic ingredients. You can tell they're real because they get soft when you cook them. Kind of like a black bean burger that doesn't hold it's shape. They're about 160 calories a patty and they're delicious. I paired them with a 100 calorie deli flat and it was a yummy lunch.




{TWO}
I FINALLY finished reading Me Before You, which I highly recommend it was so good just for some odd reason I kept putting it down and 3 months later finally finished it. I went looking for cheap Kindle books on Amazon because I refuse to pay $10 for an e-book. I came across Defending Jacob. It was $2.99 and had fantastic reviews. Somehow I got some sort of promotion and ended up paying $1.53 for the book, jack pot! So far it's really good and hard to put down. I'll do more of a review once I get further a long.



{THREE}
I used to use It's a 10 Leave in Treatment a few years ago and stopped because it's kind of expensive. I guess from all the highlighting I've done to my hair over the years it's become dry and frizzy, not my roots though, they're still a grease pot the second day. With summer coming I like to air dry my hair because it gives it a natural wave and it saves me so much time. The current leave in conditioner just wasn't cutting it so I decided to fork out the $$ and buy It's a 10 again. It's amazing how well this stuff works. No frizz, even when I let it air dry, and it leaves it so soft and light. I picked up the Blonde version because I figured why not but the regular version is awesome too.



{FOUR}
I had pink eye x2 now and had to throw away all my eye makeup not once but TWO times now. I usually wear Dior mascara but since I've had to throw out mascara twice now I decided to stick to the drugstore brands at least until I know the pink eye is gone for good. I did some research and decided to try the L'Oreal Million Voluminous Lashes and I LOVE it! Shh..don't tell Sung at the Dior counter but I prefer this to Dior's mascara! I separates, doesn't clump, adds length, and doesn't smudge. I got mine from Target for $7.99



{FIVE}
It's funny, even though we have a Madewell downtown now I still prefer to order online! Plus online has the best deals. Like this Market Popover in Clipdot I got when Madewell was having 30% off all sale. Be on the look out for another deal like that. It's the best time to stock up on outfits for cheap. If you don't know this about me yet, I NEVER pay full price for anything. I think it's dumb when if you just wait a little longer you can get it on sale. I'm wearing a size small in case anyone is wondering. It does run a bit big so you could probably order your normal size or even smaller.



Have a great weekend!

  3. Love that top, the color is so pretty for Spring! I'm a big believer in drugstore mascara, I've tried so many expensive kinds but always go back to my Maybelline! Excited for Sunday!

  9. I'm so glad I read about those veggie burgers, I'm about to go to Costco today. I hope mine has them. Hoping your eye is getting better. I picked up that Mascara and I really like it. My favorite will always be "they're real" from Benefit, but this is a MUCH cheaper alternative!

  10. That blouse looks so pretty on you! I don't look very good in pastel colors, which sucks since there are so many pretty ones out for spring! I'll have to try that mascara! I usually use the basic L'oreal Voluminous in carbon black, but if you are liking this one I'll be sure to pick it up next time! :) Have a great weekend xx

  17. My sister and you are on the same page. She got pink eye two weeks ago and on Wednesday re-infected herself. She is pissed! So needless to say I am staying far away from her :) Happy Friday lady!

  21. I need to try that It's a 10 leave in treatment- my hair sounds just like yours and I'm always looking for something to handle the frizz but not give me extra greasy hair. Love that Madewell top!
