Friday Round Up

by Ally- Life as I know it, 5:00 AM
Hello Friday! This picture reminds me of the Farmer's Market which I'm heading to on Saturday. My brother in law is in town this weekend so I've made sure to have a lot planned to keep myself busy. Golfing and football all weekend just doesn't sound like fun to me! What have you got planned this weekend?

~The trailer for Gone Girl has been released and it gave me goosebumps! I liked the book a lot, well till the ending, such a let down!, but the movie looks awesome. The movie comes out October 3rd.

~Do you remember the video that came out at Christmas time with that really cute family of 4 called, "XMas Jammies?" They came out with a new one for school starting back called "Baby Got Class" and I think it may beat the Christmas one. And also what an attractive family they are. I mean have you seen the Dad?!

~So it's come out what's in our beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte's, and it isn't pumpkin. Nope, not even a trace of pumpkin. Good ole Foodbabe crushed my heart again and investigated Starbucks and found that the PSL is full of carcinogens, GMO's, chemicals, preservatives,... do you want me to stop yet? You can read more about it here. I'm pretty bummed because I love a PSL. I'll probably have one still since it's the season but I will have in the back of my mind that I'm drinking nasty chemicals. Get it together Starbucks! 

~Natalie posted about doing a 30 day closet remix challenge where you shop within your closet without buying anything new for 30 days. It's a good way to realize how fortunate we really are and that we don't have to always have something new and it also saves some $$. I've actually already been doing this for for the past 3 months so I decided to join along. Besides getting a dress with a giftcard for my birthday and a new pair of white shorts that even Theo agreed I needed, I haven't bought a thing. We've been trying to pay off debt and it's working so my rule was you can't buy a thing till the debt is paid off. That was my wise husband's idea, thank god for him! So starting September 1 I'll be posting outfits that I've put together from the clothes in my closet, nothing new. Join in on the fun on Instagram with the hashtag #ecn30dayclosetremix. 

~Ever wonder what your signature scent is? Take this quiz to find out. I got Oud Fleur by Tom Ford. 

Have a great long weekend!

  2. Can't wait for Gone Girl to come out...and Ben Affleck...yess!

  3. Ok that's the hottest dad ever!! Now I kind of want to watch all their videos! I follow Food Babe also and saw all that she's been posting about PSL and it makes me really sad because I adore these drinks and they really make me feel like it's fall. So yesterday I saw the recipe that Good Housekeeping created in its place and I think I'm going to test those out next week (or when the temps here decide to leave the 90s! Have a great weekend!

  4. I'm so excited for the Gone Girl movie! The book ending was a bit of a let down but I heard they change the movie ending so I have to see what it is! Happy Friday!

  5. I can't wait to see Gone girl, like you I loved the book and was so excited when I saw the trailer! I do love a PSL but after reading more about it, I dont know how I feel about putting all that in my body... such a bummer! Have a great weekend love!

  6. Ooh have fun at the farmer's market. I guess I need to finally read Gone Girl before the movie comes out now. I always attempt to "shop" my closet, but end up thinking I need to add something else that is missing before I can have a good selection. #faileverytime ha Enjoy the long weekend!

  7. Damn that Food Babe. I get anxious every time I see her name. She is such a spoil sport. Gone Girl. OMG. We all need to go to see that movie. Bloggers unite! Can't wait to see what my signature scent is since I'm a freak and don't like perfume!

  8. That 30 Day Closet Remix Challenge sounds awesome. Can't wait to see what they do with Gone Girl as a movie!

  9. Since I am going to have to be moving and downsizing I told myself I can't buy anything else right now......I have discovered I literally have everything I need and then some I just have to actually look in my closet ;-)
