Friday's Faves!

It's Friday already! I'm pretty stoked about that. Although this was a four day work week for me, Friday is always a good thing. I'll try to ignore the fact that I actually have a meeting at 8:30 am tomorrow morning, (yes on a freaking Saturday), and I'll instead just bask in the fact that its Friday! Anyway on to this week's faves:

Fave Moments:

Thanks to Easter weekend, it was a short work week! For me at least. I know a lot of people had to work on Monday. Thank God I was not one of them!

On top of that, I finished marking all of my papers for the semester! As a grad student, I'm able to tutor in a university as a side gig, and I had to mark mid-terms and coursework. But as of this week, until summer courses start up, I have ZERO papers to mark. I can't lie, I did a little dance when I marked my last one. That's always a good moment!

Fave Book:

It was a long month for me and I didn't get to read nearly as much as I usually do. Still, I managed to read this book on my Kindle! 

This story has fascinated me from the very beginning and I just had to read it. I bought her then boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito's book as well. Do I believe her? Well, I think the book is convincing, but nothing surprises me anymore. If I've learned nothing else from being a lawyer, I've learned there are three sides to every story: One side's story, the other side's story and the truth! I like to hear all sides! Whether she's truly guilty or not, its a good book and great read!

Fave Shows:

This one goes to all the Real Housewives shows that aired this week. I mean, Real Housewives of Orange County and New York were good but Atlanta's reunion was epic. Did anyone else see Porsha drag Kenya to the ground by her hair?  If you didn't, it started like this:

... and it ended like this:

I really shouldn't be watching this crap but it is just too entertaining. Sometimes my brain needs to shut off, and watching grown women fighting for God knows what, is just the kind of mindless television I need!

Fave Make-up:

Guaranteed these five products can get me out of the house in record time on a normal, slow day or for work when I don't want or need any extra fuss! They help me look polished but still very natural! Pretty sure this is all I've used all week:

1. L'oreal True match concealer
2. MAC studio fix powder
3. L'oreal voluminous million lashes (blackest black)
4. Jordana eye pencil (black)
(I also have MAC eye pencil but  sometimes the cheap stuff just works)
5. MAC Pro long wear lip gloss (I have several colours)

Fave Food:

I don't really have a favourite food, but last evening I went out with my good girlfriend Alicia for a bite to eat and a drink. We ordered nachos to share. Thank God we ordered to share because neither of us are big eaters and this was the ginormous portion that they served us ... note the lettuce ... this is a healthy meal obviously:

 ... and these were our drinks:

Fave Funnies:

Fave Song:

Ok, before I share this song, I have to say I hated it when it first came out, particularly because of the video which I still think is creeptastic at best. BUT, my mind changed about the actual song when I played it in my car for the first time. I had to raise the volume and rock out ... just had to! The. beat. is. everything.

Those are my faves for the week! Happy Friday guys :)


Add your comment

  1. The video creeps me out too! However the song is a pretty good jam, especially when working out!

  2. hahahaha that opinion pic had me laughing far too hard. that food looks aahhmazing. and holy crap i dont watch any housewives, but that looks epic and like i need to.

  3. Those nachos look sooo good!! And I love that Katy Perry song too, it's pretty catchy!! Happy Friday!!

  4. Dark horse was totally going to be my song for the week - love it!! I watched the finale and my favorite thing about the fight was that no one even went to Kenya - they all made sure Porshe was OK - I mean that totally shows you what kind of person Kenya is!! Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. what to do with your opinion -- I DIE!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!! i want to print that on a shirt and wear it to work.

    Vodka and Soda

  6. Sister friend. Talk to me about this mascara... I need it, yes?!

  7. Those nachos look so yummy! I have and read that Amanda Knox book! So good. I think she just needs to admit that her and Meredith were roommates, not friends. I haven't seen the RHOA reunion yet. I'll probably catch it this weekend. Based on the promos and your gif it looks awesome. I'm addicted to all the housewives shows!

  8. Okay, that is some serious drama on the reunion! I don't watch any of the real housewives show but damn!! Those nachos make my mouth water. The song isn't loading for me, but I take it from the other comments it's Dark Horse -- which I LOVE. Great pick :)

  9. mmm those nachos. yum. i love dark horse but I cannot listen to it anymore! haha

  10. I've been meaning to pick up her book but my list is so long I always forget about it! I've just bumped it to the top of my list though. And thanks for that nacho picture when I haven't had breakfast yet, now my stomach is screaming at me! :)

  11. OMG those nachos look to die for. I am starving now and man I would tear those up. Also I couldn't believe the ATL reunion. I'm sorry but Kenya had it coming; Bravo should not allowed her to torment Prosha will all of those stupid props. Kenya provoked the hell out of her and everyone has limits. Girl I am with you, I shouldn't be watching it either, but it's just too entertaining, ha. Lucky you for having Monday off; I didn't get Friday or Monday - whomp whomp. Have a great weekend darling.

  12. Hey Kay!! OMG I love the opinion photo!! Too freakin' funny! Great minds think alike by the way, rockin' Katy Perry all the way! Have a great weekend my dear!! :) XO


  13. I watched the ATL reunion and I cant wait to see part 2 lol

  14. LOL what to do with your opinion is also what you should do with your SATURDAY morning meeting. Don't they know Saturdays are for sleeping?

  15. The reunion special was hilarious! Girl got beat! Ummm I want to eat and drink at the restaurant now!

  16. OMG I loved this entire post. Not going to lie I just about died after I saw that girl yelling at the other one on a Megaphone....pump the brakes are you kidding me??? I would have dragged her out by her hair as well! I need to find that youtube clip right now! Your ecards are hilarious! Hope you have a great weekend love! xoxo

  17. O loved watching Porscha drag Kenya so much I had to pause, go back, watch again! I also loved Porscha's reaction-- She essentially said she made me do it! LOL, girl no one can MAKE you do anything, you know you WANTED to drag her sorry butt!

  18. I finally watched the reunion and it was amazing. Kenya is cray and I love how everyone was making sure Porsha was ok, not her! Love me some housewives.

  19. Baahahahaha... that "opinion" meme is AWESOME!
    Those housewife bitches are fucking NUTS! haha

  20. Ohhhhh I def want to read that Amanda Knox book - I was fascinated by the case and would love to read her account!

  21. Hahaha! That last funny is great!! So funny! Have a great weekend!

  22. Kay I have to stop reading your blog while I'm at work because I sit at my desk laughing and looking ridiculous! But OMG I LOVED the amanda knox book! I wanted someone else to be reading it so i could discuss! i don't know if i believe her though..she seems a little off


I read all my comments. Drop me a line! I would love to hear from you! :)
