The Friday Five

What I missed most about blogging... The Friday Five.

1. What I'm Reading...

After debating on whether or not I could give up "real books" for electronic ones, about 6 months ago I finally caved and bought a Kindle. I am so glad I did! I have read more in the past 6 months than I ever have! I just started Gone Girl this week. Literally everyone from my mom to my hair stylist have told me to read this book. It is a little odd but I am very interested to see where it goes. I've heard it's the "must read thriller of the summer" which is not normally my genre, but I will let you know what I think.

2. What I'm Listening to...

I can't help it. It stays on repeat for days. My only wish is that this song had come out in high school so I could have used the lyrics as an AIM away message.

3. What I'm Watching...

I love Big Brother. I especially love this photo because Mike Boogie is wearing a Clemson hat.

This summer while all of my regular shows are on hiatus, I have become addicted to HGTV. House Hunters is probably my favorite show but I also love Property Brothers, Love it or List it and Meg's Great Rooms.

4. What I'm Eating...

omg. I can't believe I have not tried Avocados before this year. Because I love them. I always thought they looked gross and I would hate the mushy texture, but one bite and I was hooked. Now I eat avocados in salads, on BLT's and on toast.

I rediscovered this while on vacay in Fl, and now I can't remember why I stopped buying it. I think it tastes like waffle cones.

5. What I'm pinning...

To be honest, I've not pinned in about 6 months. I got a little bored with it.

But. What I have been scouring the Internet for is the perfect fall bag. I've yet to find it so if you have any recommendations please let me know!

This one I love but I am not a fan of the price tag:

I love my navy Longchamp so I've also been thinking of getting another one of those. Decisions, decisions.

What's In My Beauty Bag

Like many girls I know, I carry a small beauty bag in my purse full of items I use throughout the day. I probably have way too many lip products but I can't help myself, in my opinion you can never have too many.

 I like to keep my purse organized so I keep several small bags inside that hold different things. This bag holds all of my makeup items that I keep in my purse.

Nars Turkish Delight, Chanel Bikini Peach, Bare Minerals Showoff, MAC Astral and Fashion Scoop

 Revlon Peach, Chanel Boy, MAC Angel, MAC Innocence Beware, MAC Cherish, Viva Glam V

  Clinique Chubby Stick in Mighty Mimosa and MAC Tendertone in Hush

I always keep MAC Studio Fix powder for touch ups and for the mirror, Dental Floss, and Mascara Samples

What is in your Beauty Bag?

Fall is on it's way! Yay!

So I know, I know.. long time no post. Guilty. But something about Fall just makes me want to blog again. For those of you that emailed me during my hiatus, thank you so much! Your kindness was overwhelming!

I love Summer. I love having a tan, going to the beach and wearing white. But, I have to say that after a few days in the low 80's, I am excited for riding boots, hot drinks and changing leaves. This Saturday I am headed up to the mountains in North Carolina with some girlfriends for a day trip, so as I was mentally planning my outfit (everyone does that right?), I started thinking about fall and what I'm most excited about and here are the top 5 I came up with...

1.College Football!!
 I love football season! This Saturday my beloved Clemson Tigers will kick off football season against Auburn. I. Can't. Wait.

2. Cozy Fall Outfits
I am so excited for fall boots and flats. For me, Kate and Reese always get it right. I always want what they are wearing.

3. Hot Drinks
Specifically, seasonal Starbucks drinks like Pumpkin Spiced Lattes and Salted Caramel Mocha's. My Starbucks tweeted that they will be arriving in 8 days! Yay!

4. Fall nail polish!!
I have a major addiction to nail polish. I have really enjoyed all of the bright colors that summer allows, but I am also excited for some of my fall favorites to come out to play! My go to- Essie Mink Muffs

5. Pretty scenery!
