Five on Friday - September 22, 2017

Happy Friday everyone!! I have to start by saying Sorry for the lack of posts this week - I still got a couple up, but not my regular nails or mask posts! It has been a long week - my husband has been working out of town for the week and it has been crazy being along with 2 boys to take care of! 


Let's talk about my Friday Freebies today - these ones are good! Mac Cosmetics reopened today in one of Calgary's biggest malls and celebrated by giving away 200 lipsticks to the first people in the store! It worked out perfectly for me, it has been really cold all week and I haven't been getting out for as many walks so it was perfect time for a mall walk morning!

Then, I saw the Kiehl's was offering a few samples when you get a skincare consultation so I stopped in quickly! It was actually interesting because I know my skin has changed post baby and it confirmed that it is learning more oily so I will see how it does over the next few months but I am definitely trying to adapt my routine! 

Ahhh.... today is the first day of Fall! Time is just flying this year!!! (Do I say that too much?!) 

I had to wait until the first day of Fall to get my Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte! It was delicious and tasted just like Fall! Yum!


Mmmm... one of my favorite parts of Fall is that I can get back to making a huge crockpot of soup!! I tried a new Minestrone Soup recipe (the last one did not make leftovers well) and this one made great leftovers for the week! I paired it with my family's delicious Italian Pizza Bread! What's your favorite soup recipe? I am always look for new ideas! 

Post baby has been super slow in terms of me reading - I still always have a book on the go, but I can literally read a chapter or two each night before I'm exhausted! But, this week I actually finished 2 books and started another 2! If you have a Goodreads account, you can find me here - I'm always looking for new reading material ideas! 


Did you guys catch the ending of Big Brother season finale this week? I'm a little shocked that Josh won - he wasn't my favorite at all; but, neither was Paul. Really, at the end I found the show hard to watch (or really most of the season), no one did anything except Paul run the game... boring... 


  1. Man, I hated the end of Big Brother. At some point, it got really hard to watch. I wasn't a fan of either Josh or Paul although I did think Paul should have won if we are talking gameplay. I am really just glad the season is over and I don't have to watch it anymore. XD
