Friday Favourites

Barbados hotels

I'd give anything to be at that pool right now: taken at the Radisson Hotel in Barbados. Soon guys. Soon.

It's Friday! It was a short week here, with last Monday being a public holiday for me. Guess what though, I made the week shorter by taking today off (for good reason and much needed). Y'all, I'm pretty excited for the weekend. For once, I brought no work home and my plans are to clean the apartment, maybe have a drink or two, shop a tiny bit and generally just ... relax. Enough rambling, on to my favourite things for the week...

Fave Person:

My favourite person today (and lets be honest, most days) is this guy. Bonus points as its his birthday (day off making a bit more sense now?). Does this cutie look like he's 38 years old? Nope. Happy Birthday babe.

P.S. anyone interested in a series about a Caribbean girl dating a Romanian guy? I so want to do one.

Fave Podcast:

my dad wrote a porno

I've been listening to tons of Podcasts late and maybe I'll do a post on all of them soon, but right now I'm loving this one. I know the name sounds a bit off, but the concept is that this British guy's dad wrote a series of pornos... he reads and analyses the books with his friend. 

IT. IS. hil-ar-ious!! 

Just trust me on this one, you won't regret listening. It's on season 3 now and Ive listened to every episode.

Fave Drink:


I've said it a million times - I do not drink milk. I'm not allergic, but the texture and taste is just.. NO. Anyway Danny and I have a thing where we go out every week and one of us orders a drink to try - he ordered me a mudslide (I never had one before) and I must admit, milky or not, it was delicious.

Fave Makeup:

I've raved about L'oreal mascaras before, but sometime late last year I switched from the ordinary voluminous mascara to the using their voluminous butterfly line. Man - whatever I said before, multiply it. For a drugstore brand, this honestly does the trick. Love.

That's it for me.

What are your plans for the weekend? 

Have a great weekend guys!

    Happy Birthday to your boyfriend! And yes, I would definitely be interested in reading that series. It sounds very fun & interesting! :)

    Mudslides are so delicous! It reminds me of an ice cream sundae in drink form!

    This weekend, I spent time with friends, did some planning in my Life Planner, watched baseball, went food shopping, and relaxed.

  12. I'm with you on milk. I don't drink it - I find it an unappealing taste, now. But that mudslide looks yummy. Also, that beach looks amazing. Happy birthday to your guy!

    Simply Alexandra: My Favorite Things

  14. You should definitely do a series about dating a Romanian guy! The cultural differences and maybe even similarities would be so interesting to read. Nobody wants to read about a Caribbean girl dating an American guy cause that's probably outplayed and overdone...and maybe obvious from TV. Love, LOVE that view from Barbados! Really a Caribbean gem.


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