{friday 5}



The first day of Fall!

And oh my gosh, THE WEATHER!  It feels like Fall and I’m loving it.  Who else is with me in welcoming this change of season?

It’s Friday, and I’ve got 5 things on my mind……

ONE – Shady AF //  This one’s for you Lina!  I’ve been asked over and over by so many peeps to share my shade details.  I just got these a few weeks ago and I’m totally diggin them.  Matte black.  Polarized.  Great price tag.  I scored mine during the Shop Bop sale for $50.

And let’s take a sec to talk about Bay’s shades.  Until last month, I had NO idea Ray Bans came in Jr sizes.  Bay really really wanted a pair for her birthday.  She keeps them in the car and pops them on as soon as she buckles up.  It kills me.  She looks so teenager with them on.

TWO – Wi-Fi Printable // This was on my Intentions for the week.  Check!  I want peeps to feel at home when they walk though the door at our house.  And what feels more at home than your Wi-Fi connecting?  I just recently figured out how to change the name on our Wi-Fi.  Ha!  It was some weird combo of numbers and letters and I had a hard time figuring out which one was ours.  Picking a name was kind of a big deal.  Especially when you recruit the help of an 11-year-old.  Here’s what we came up with:



Since when do you need two?  They explained all the technical shit to me and it went right over my head.  But we have Wi-Fi, so it’s all good.

Anyway, I printed out this cute FREE printable and put our password on it for all our guests.

Come over and get cozy AF!  Use our Wi-Fi!


THREE – Mascara // I read so many “amazing” reviews on mascara.  Not just mascara.  I’m an avid review reader for everything.  I like to hear the good and the bad.  I’m also not a big makeup person.  Don’t get me wrong, I wear that shit of my life and I bet 90% of you have never seen me without it.  I like some of the nice stuff, but I’ve been rocking $4.00 Covergirl mascara for yearrrssss.  Sometime I buy the new IT mascara.  Then I toss it.  I never like it.  I read so many rave reviews on the new L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise.  So, naturally, I had to try it.  You guys…it’s $8.99, that’s double what I normally spend.  Skeptical AF!!!  Ha!  Other than my Laura Mercier, I buy everything else at Target.

Sorry Covergirl mascara, you got tossed.  I literally threw it away that moment.  The rave reviews are legit.  This is the BEST mascara I’ve ever used.  Twice this week, I was asked if I had lash extensions or done something to my lashes.  Nope.  Just $8.99 mascara 🙂

Try it.  Let me know if you agree!!!  Maybe I’m just a cheapy mascara girl and there is so much more out there.

Questions….why do I always get an auto correct on Mascara?  It’s a pretty important word in the English language.




FOUR – Whipped Feta Dip //  I experimented with a new dip.  My prego sis, that hates feta, was obsessed with it.  Between the two of us, this dip didn’t stand a chance.  Sounds like a weird combo, I know.  It’s damn good and I will 100% be making this again.  Wouldn’t it look pretty on a cheese board with grapes + candied walnuts + assorted crackers?  Yummm!


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup ricotta
  • 4 oz feta, crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon green onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup honey


Here’s what you do:

Blend ricotta + feta + olive oil together in a food processor until smooth.

Add green onions + pepper.  Blend for 20 seconds.

Spread on a plate, pressing the center down to make a well.  Fill with honey.

Serve with pita chips.
