Friday Favourites

I don't typically wish weeks away. Life is way too short for that. Having said that, this is one week that I'm not too sad to see go away. It's been a super busy and slightly stressful one and if I'm really honest, I'm just really ready for a vacation. I haven't had a real vacation since I went to Australia in October 2014. That's just too long.

Anyway, I haven't done one of these posts in months. Literally. So I'm jumping in with some faves.

Fave moment (to come)

Next Wednesday OC and I are headed to Barbados and I cannot wait!!! We're staying at the Coconut Court Beach hotel, a lovely hotel right on the beach. Heaven I tell ya. I plan on spending all 4 days like a beached whale - relaxing. Drinks in hand of course.  

Fave Purchase

Yes. My favourite purchase(s) this week were two replacement cords for my phone. I always have four cords. One at work, one in the car and two at home (one for ipad). Two broke in the same week and I lost all sense of reality. What is life. They're replaced and life can go on.

Fave Book

I was given this book by Netgalley for an honest review. I will give it a more in depth review in the next show us your books, but man this book was hilarious. Nice, easy read!

Fave Beauty

This isn't new but I finally got around to using my ELF bronzer pallette. I still have to play around with it a bit but so far the verdict is - I like. a lot.

Fave Funnies

I'm the clumsiest person I know - I fell down five stairs last week #typical


So my assistant came into my office this week and found a pokemon. I was probably more disturbed that a little orange monster was in my office than I should have been. Maybe one day I'll join the craze but for today:

Have a great Weekend guys!!!

  3. YAY for vacation!!! So happy to see you visited--I was worried you'd stopped blogging. I am clumsy too. Love the superhero pic--that's me too!haha

    i am always losing cords! i need to adopt your 4 mentality, i only have 2 and its stupid.
    that book looks hilarious, can't wait for your review.

  14. hahahah that superhero one. i'd be a terrible superhero because most crimes happen at night and i'm asleep by 930pm so i'd miss the signal like, all the time!! :D

  15. Have fun on your trip! I'm totally clumsy too--I just scrapped my knee REALLLLL good tonight.

  16. LOL about the hidden Pokemon in your office. I think I'll also have to pass on the Pokemon obsession...I use enough data as it is!

  17. My iPhone cord is on its last legs but I'm trying to hold out until I get a new phone next month and I get one from Apple, hah! I might have to cave though, it's about to be totally destroyed.
    So jealous of your getaway—have so much fun!

  18. We have bought multiple back-up phone chargers and yet I still struggle to find one that's not broken (or to just find one at all). Enjoy your well-deserved trip! Have a drink for me!

  19. I don't even understand how a pokemon ends up in your office. #tooolddontcare
    I'm so happy for you and your trip to Barbados. You deserve some R & R!

  20. I just can't with the Pokemon stuff. Maybe because I never played it so I just don't understand but how does it end up in your office? Like who put it there? Haha.
    Enjoy Barbados. My friends are from there and they keep insisting I should visit too. Someday.

  21. Hey! Loved your collection would like to buy these for myself. I am eagerly waiting for buying this.
