What I’m Doing Wednesday #2

Woohoo, it’s Wednesday! HUMP DAY! And here’s what I’m doing today..

What I’m Reading

“You’re the One That I Want,” which is book #6 in the Gossip Girl series! As I mentioned last week, I’m reading the entire GG book series. It’s still not as good as the show.. but it’s definitely keeping me entertained.

What I’m Missing

PENNSYLVANIA and SNOW! Ahhh. My mom sent me these pictures this morning and it made me so homesick. Don’t get me wrong, I love living in North Carolina.. but sometimes a girl just wants a winter wonderland!

A Winter Wonderland!

What I’m NOT Loving

Bleh.. this Sleepytime Tea I bought for my Keurig. It has way too many weird flavors going on – and I’m definitely a dark and strong tea person, not a herbal, minty tea person.

Not my cup of tea.

What I’m Watching

The hubby and I have started watching American Horror Story (Season 1) on Netflix. We’re only up to episode 6, but it’s getting better and better. I was really hesitant during the first few episodes – I’m telling you, this show is WEIRD – but it’s growing on me. So I guess we found another show to watch together!

And now.. dun dun dun.. time for another edition of What I Wore Wednesday – while linking up with The Pleated Poppy and Mrs. Burnett 🙂

Unfortunately, I have to work tonight.. so my outfit is less than exciting.

Uh, yes my eyes are closed.

TGIF.. Except I Have To Work

TGIF! Unfortunately.. I have to return to work tonight after a week off, bleh. But first – I’d like to announce my first time linking up with Tara from Fabulous but Evil for The Nail Files! Thanks again to Amber at MommaInBloom for finding this. (This woman always finds the most fun things ever!).

I already posted a picture of my fun, gorgeous manicure earlier in the week.. but here it is again! I didn’t do them myself, so I honestly don’t even know the name of the polish. But it’s so pretty!

So while I was reading Tara’s post, I noticed she talked about being a Julep Maven. For $20/month you can sign up for a subscription to get 2 nail polishes and a beauty product delivered right to your house! Anddd they’re offering a special that if you enter promo code MAVENINTRO, you’ll get your first box for one penny. Obviously I signed up for a subscription and I am now a Julep Maven! Can’t wait for my first box! Check it out here – it’s so easy! You just answer a few questions to get your beauty profile set up and then you’re ready to go!

And then something else I’d like to recommend.. BIRCHBOX! I’ve been a member of Birchbox for about 1 1/2 years. It’s very similar to Julep – it’s $10/month for a subscription and they send you 4-7 trial sized beauty products. (The products vary from makeup to perfume to nail polish to healthy snacks to hair products – literally, anything!). Again, you answer a few questions to get your beauty profile and then they send you products based on what you answer. You can give reviews on the website to earn extra points – for every 100 pts, you earn $10 to spend.  AND for every $1 you spend, you earn 1 point. I’m not going to lie, some of the products are quite pricey – but I LOVE trying new things and I’ve discovered some awesome products from this website. You can sign up here, if you’re interested.

((No one has paid me to discuss any of these products – but I wish someone would!))

Hope everyone has a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend! I have quite a few things going on this weekend so you might not hear from me until Monday – don’t miss me too much!  And last but not least..

30 Day “What If” Challenge

Day 6 :  What if you could be another person for a day, who would you be?

I’d totally be the Duchess of Cambridge – Catherine! Yeah sure, I guess I could say I’d want to be someone that could change the world – but honestly, what girl hasn’t wanted to be a a real-life PRINCESS?! I think she’s absolutely gorgeous and she seems so fun and so normal. In the “royal world,” she was considered a commoner – and now she’s married to a Prince! A future King! How cool is that? I can’t even imagine what her life would be like. Nevermind the fact that I watched the Royal Wedding coverage like it was my job. So yeah, there you go – the end!

What I’m Doing Wednesday #1

Let me begin with some background information.. Amber from MommaInBloom was my first friend on WordPress (and is actually a real life friend too!). I keep finding all these awesome ideas from her blog, so pleaseee go check it out. I’m borrowing some of my ideas from the section of her blog titled “Loving and Pinning,” where she talks about the things she’s currently loving and currently pinning. She linked her Pinterest/pinning idea to a blog called The Vintage Apple that has a section titled “Oh, How Pinteresting!”  – you should definitely check that out also.  I ALSO discovered “What I Wore Wednesday” from The Pleated Poppy, which another fellow blogger (MrsBurnett22) linked up with here. (PHEW!!)

Now that THAT is out of the way.. let me introduce you to What I’m Doing WednesdayIt’s going to be an (almost) weekly update on random things that’s happening in my life at that current time. It might not be the same things every time. It may be only 3 things.. or maybe 7 things.. I really have no idea. It’ll pretty much be random (of course), but feel free to join in and link up! So here we go!

What I’m Reading

I Like It Like That,” which is book #5 in the Gossip Girl series. I loved watching the TV series and now I’m heartbroken that it’s over, so I felt like the obvious next step was to read the books. It’s a little bit weird because there are definite differences, but it’s a quick, easy read – I’d definitely recommend it!

What I’m Wearing (on my nails)

I’m not allowed to have my nails painted when I’m at work so the first thing I did when my mom came to visit (and I was off work for a week!) was get a manicure. I think the design is supposed to be zebra print. Either way it’s super adorable and I’m going to be so sad on Friday when I have to go back to work and back to ugly nails. Bleh.

It’s really hard to take a pretty nail picture.

What I’m Buying

We have a local spice shop that sells all sorts of spices for really reasonable prices. I happened to come across this yummyyyyy Dill Dip spice. You’re allowed to taste everything while you’re there and this stuff is so so good. You can add it to sour cream for a dip, cream cheese for a spread.. or you can just sprinkle it over some cooked vegetables like we did for dinner. Seriously, so good.

Blacked out the address, don’t want stalkers, lol.

What I’m Looking At

I recently discovered this website called Reddit. It’s full of hilarious pictures – sometimes I almost cry because I’m laughing so hard – but it also has a lot of drug related and perverted pictures, so look at your own risk. Anyway, I came across this insanely awesome picture of a bookshelf that someone uploaded. Not only do I LOVE bookshelves, but this one is seriously a piece of artwork. Gorgeous!

So awesome.

What I’m Pinning

I’m still trying to figure out how to embed these directly from Pinterest, so for now.. they will not be centered and I haven’t figured out how to add any additional words.. so I’ll write my little notes up here.

1. Glue wooden letters to canvas and paint. Super pretty and seems super easy!

2. A Jack Daniel’s bottle as a soap dispenser? Pretty sure my husband would not only approve of this, but would also LOVE it. Maybe for our downstairs bathroom??

Anyway – let me know what you think of What I’m Doing Wednesday
