Five on Friday


1. New Haircut

^Personal Photo^

This past Sunday I got my hair cut shorter. This is my favorite length for my hair.

2. Parenthood's final scene of series finale


Parenthood is one of my all time favorite shows and I'm so sad that this season was the last. The video above is the final scene of the series finale. I think they should have written all of the story lines shown in the video into the show and the show could have gone on for many more years.

3. My fur baby, Davey Eli's 7th birthday

^Personal Photo^

Tomorrow my fur baby, Davey Eli turns 7 years old. I can't believe he is going to be 7. In September, it will be 6 years that I've had my precious boy in my life. If you know me, you know that I'm a total animal lover especially about cats, dogs, and horses.

4. Book Releases I'm Looking Forward

Pop Sugar Must Have Box: February 2015

Here is what I received in my February Pop Sugar Must Have Box:

^February information card^

Chuao Chocolatier Ravishing Rocky Road Bar
Retails for: $6
I'm not a huge chocolate fan but this bar was pretty good. It didn't have as many nuts and marshmallows as I was expecting but it was still delicious.

ACME Party Box Company Bamboo Heart Cutting Board & Cheese Knife
PopSugar Exclusive
Retails for: $32
This is a cute item but I don't really eat much cheese. I gave this to my mom though and she loves it.

Figs & Rouge 100% Natural Balm in Pomegranate
Retails for: $8
I love lip balms and this product looks great. They had sent out different flavors and I'm happy with the one I got.

U.S. Apothecary Rose Water Bubble Bath
Retails for: $30
I love taking baths and this bubble bath looks very luxurious. It came in such a pretty glass bottle and it's a really nice sized bottle. I'm very excited to try this product.

Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush
Retails for: $26

and

Special Extra: Sally Beauty FingerPaints Nail Color
Retails for: $5.50
I'm not big into makeup so I gave the blush to my mom and I wasn't a big fan of the color nail polish so I gave that to my mom as well.

BaubleBar Mini Arrow Pendant Necklace
Retails for: $32
I'm not fan of necklaces as I don't like wearing things around my neck so I will be giving this to my niece O who loves jewelry.

Overall, I did not really like this month's box. There were only a few items I liked. I hope next month's box is more to my liking.

Five on Friday


1. Saved By the Bell "Reunion" on Jimmy Fallon

I always loved watching Saved By The Bell. Mark Paul Gosselaar was one of my first celebrity crushes along with Luke Perry, Jonathan Tyler Thomas, Justin Timberlake, and many more. I've been boy crazy since I was little. lol. Anyway, Saved By The Bell was one of my favorite shows. The sketch on Jimmy Fallon's show earlier this week made my day. It was so awesome and so funny to see them reference main plot points throughout the show's run. If you haven't seen it, I suggest checking it out.


2. Neutrogena Hydroboost Gel

I recently tried this product and I absolutely love it. It leaves my face feeling smooth, moisturized, and refreshed. I definitely am interested in trying more of the line's products.

3. Current read: To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han

I started this book on Monday and I'm almost done with it. It's such a great read. I found out yesterday that she is coming out with a sequel to it this year which I'm very excited to read. Have any of you read this book?

4. iPhone 6
