High Five for Friday 05.29.15

I took the past week off from blogging since I was in Vegas for part of it.  I intended to post on Wednesday, but it just wasn’t in the cards.  I’m trying to catch up on comments and blog reading now.  I’d love if you’d leave me a link to you favorite post you wrote this week in the links below!  Also, Caitlin will be returning to the H54F line-up next week.

TGIF, H54F-ers!!! Caitlin at Coffee with Caitlin, Della at Della Devoted, Katie at Cup of Tea, and myself want to welcome you to the link-up and the weekend.  We made it!!! 

This week’s featured blogger is Abby from Always, Abby.  Abby is a 20-something blogger who, like all of us co-hosts, blogs about a little of everything–beauty, life, style, essential oils–you name it, she blogs about it:)  She recently did a Sugar Bash April Showers Box review (I really want to try the Wet Brush) and a round-up of her favorite eyeliners.  I recommend checking out both posts, of course!

Now to recap the week:

Oh, friends, it’s been a long one.haha I need sleep, sleep, and more sleep!

1. Vegas was excellent, as always!  I’ll be doing a recap of our trip in the next couple of weeks, along with at least 1 outfit post from my time there.  We flew home on a red eye Tuesday morning and I went straight into work.  BIG mistake–I’m still feeling sleep deprived, and have chosen to come home and relax in the evenings instead of blogging.  But I’m back at it now:)

By the way, does anyone notice what the major difference between this two pics is? #creeper  And sorry for the low image quality, but it was too funny not to share!

2. I love getting home and getting to see Kane!  Parenting is hard work, and sometimes we all need a getaway to be able to relax, but there’s nothing like coming home to my sweet little boy after spending some time away. I brought him back a Grumpy Cat stuff animal as his souvenir:)

3. Essie nailed it with their Neons Collections for 2015!  I have only tried the blue shade, but it’s a one coat wonder (OCW)!!! This mini 4-pack will set you back $17 if you purchase for full retail, but I purchased from eBay for much cheaper.  This link contains some different products in addition to the mini 4-pack, so please pay close attention to what you’re purchasing. I also purchased the Chillato color from their regular summer collection.

4. I had to run to the mall to pick up a gift for a bridal shower/bachelorette party I’m attending this week, and I stopped by En-twine Boutique at the Fayette Mall.  It’s a lovely, local shop that carries some goods by locals.  They were hosting a showing by Lela Ray Jewelry. I picked up these gorgeous earrings but she had tons of adorable items.  I hope you’ll check her work out!

5. Since I’ve been running on steam this week, I made the best call I could have made about what I was having for dinner last night–the Cheesecake Factory.  More specifically, I had the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake for dinner. I shared some with Kane, and there’s a little left over for breakfast today. Yum.
