Happy Friday!


Today is the first Friday of Spring and I am LOVING this weather lately!  I have been doing tons of walking and exploring.  If you follow along via Instagram you may have seen some of the pictures of NYC that I have been snapping along the way.  I am so glad not to be cooped up inside any more!  

This weekend is going to be a fun one.  It is Easter and we going to brunch at a place that I love.  I’m excited to see my family and eat some Cadbury Eggs!

I am linking up with AprilAmanda and Della for Friday Favorites today.  Here goes:

1. Lush Cosmetics.  I have to thank Amy for introducing me to this Company.  I spotted a bath bomb on her blog recently and then when I was wandering around on 14th Street the other day I passed the store and couldn’t resist buying myself and Taylor and a few treats.  I smelled one of their Shower Jellies in the store and was instantly hooked!  I am going to put T’s treats in her Easter basket!

Lush Bath Bombs2.   Allegiant.  Taylor and I have been going to seeing the Divergent movies together since the beginning and last weekend we took in Allegiant.  It was meh.  It was not the worst movie I have seen but it was not my favorite one in the series either.  The only saving grace was the hot lead actor, Four.  I’ve always felt like a pervert for thinking he was cute but I just Googled and he is my same age in real life.  Whew.


3.  Gwen Stefani – This Is What The Truth Feels Like.  I downloaded Gwen’s new album this week and I have been listening to it on the walk to work.  I really love the beat and even though it is a sad album about heartache, it isn’t bitter and it doesn’t feel sappy.  It is honest and hopeful and real.  I dig it.


4.  Macbook Air.  I need your help!  I am thinking of buying a new laptop and I need some feedback.  (I hate to buy anything without first speaking to someone that actually owns what I am contemplating purchasing.  Does anyone else do that?)  Since so many of my readers are bloggers I figured I could take a second to pick your brains.  What kind of comp do you use?  Do you have a Macbook Air?  That is what I am leaning towards buying.  Should I get the Applecare?  Please leave me answers in the comments!


5.  The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton.  I have been on a Kate Morton kick lately.  I listened to The Lake House earlier in the month through Audible and now I am just powering through all of her books.  The Secret Keeper was my favorite so far.  It was a mystery within a mystery and just when you thought everything had been solved – there was more.  I don’t want to spoil it for you so I will just say that it was a good one and I recommend it.


I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!  Thanks for visiting!  See you back here on Monday.  xo

    I had a macbook air for 5 years and loved it…but it started to show some wear and tear! With any apple product I highly suggest getting the apple care. I use a Dell touch computer and love it – it has a terabyte of memory (ie i will never fill it up lol) hope you have a great weekend!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    I always LOVE your Friday goodness, especially the honesty about Four, lol, you know I love a lot of the same series you and Taylor do and I was so disappointed in this 3rd movie!! Ahh Lush, I can smell the bath bombs now!!! I hope you have an “Egg”cellent Easter weekend full of fun, love and laughter!!

    Adding The Secret Keeper to my TBR list!!! I love Lush!!! We dont have a store here but we are getting one soon and I am going to be frequenting it!!! I like to buy that stuff in person when i can sniff and feel the products first. Hope you guys have a wonderful Easter Brunch!!!

    As far as computers go, my husband has a Mac and loves it but I have an ASUS and prefer the windows platform because I am more familiar with it.

    I have a chromebook and it’s done me well for blogging, but I have an apple computer for work. I really liked the Divergent books, so I’ll have to check out that movie! Hope you have a Happy Easter!

    We have a MacBook, but if I was purchasing new I would for sure get the Air. AppleCare is well worth it…we’ve used it a few times for things I damaged on the computer- haha. We’ve had ours for about 6 years and it’s still working great. I love Lush and wish I had one close, I don’t always love to pay for shipping since I’m spoiled by Nordstrom and Sephora’s free shipping…so I usually just stock up when I visit a mall with one. LOVE their Easter goodies. Hope you have a wonderful Easter, enjoy!

    Four is our age?! He’s DELICIOUS! Also, Avery adores bath bombs! Can’t wait for these two to meet! I am getting an Air this weekend and so excited for it! I have had my Pro for five years THANKS to Applecare. My mom spilled coffee on my last one and Apple Care got me a brand new computer for more than 50% off, so IMHO totally worth it!

    Oh, I love Lush everything–their lip scrubs are so delicious. Not that I eat them or anything (okay, fine. So maybe I put a little on and lick it off. YUM!). I am almost due for a new computer myself–let me know how you make out. I love Apple products (have a Macbook now) but hate the price tag!

    Also just added that book to my list–love me a good mystery 🙂 Isn’t this weather gorgeous?! I love coming out of hibernation, HA! XOXO

    i don’t think i have read the secret keeper, but i did read the forgotten garden, i think that’s what it’s called? and i liked it. i have the lake house on audible waiting on me.
    OKAY. so, allegiant. i haven’t seen it yet but i HATED the book (a lot of people did) so you have to tell me the ending, did anyone die?
    and yes to Four. all the live long day, that man is gloriously gorgeous.
