Always Welcoming the Weekend

Happy Friday lovelies!

Other than busting my ass at work, this week was pretty uneventful but I guess that's not a bad thing. I actually feel well-rested despite increased work hours + unruly cute puppy that's potty training + rain & fog causing my commute to almost double (don't even get me started on stupid drivers). Either way, this weekend will be used to sleep in and de-stress with a small chance of productivity.


I'm know I'm late to the party but I signed up for a free trial of Amazon Prime this week. I've obviously been in the dark about everything this membership comes with (other than 2-day shipping). I'm still figuring out all the perks but I'd love to hear from those that use it, mainly:

(1) What do I need to take advantage of during this 30-day trial?
(2) What really makes continuing with the $99 membership worth it?

  1. It sounds like we have had the same week. It will be nice to de-stress and just relax this weekend. I love Amazon prime to catch some TV shows that are not on Netflix, and some movies. You also get a free ebook once a month.

  2. hahaha your funnies are definitely fun and had me laughing (especially setting someone free lol)
    My husband and I love our Amazon Prime. It's just nice having access to all the music and movies (and some shows), and the 2 day shipping no matter what the price is awesome too. I guess you have to see if it's worth it for you, but when you think about it, $100 for a year (and you get to add someone else to your prime membership for free, so I have access to my husband's prime account) it's not that bad. At least for us.
    Love Alex and Ani bracelets! They're the perfect accessory. I wear mine all the time!

  3. That lil puppy picture is sooooo cute, definitely made me smile this morning :)!

    I don't have prime, but my dad does so I just use his account for shipping. I don't buy too much, so it's not necessary for me.

    Happy weekend, friend!

  7. I've recently become obsessed with chickpeas, can't get enough! That recipe looks delicious. Love your Alex and Ani collection too, I am going to grab a few more this year. I got one in a Glossybox and I've fallen in love.

  11. To say I am obsessed with Amazon Prime is the understatement of the Century! You should have started your trial before the holidays. Basically, with AP you get FREE two day shipping or $3.99 for OVERNIGHT shipping on the massive list of items that they carry. That is CLUTCH for me because I have a child and she comes home constantly needing random stuff for school that I dont have time to run out and buy in a store. I order things from there constantly. Also, if you have a smart TV or an iPad you can watch free Prime movies.

  12. Those bracelets are too cute! I have to admit, I only wear a watch and never bracelets, I lose them a lot or the kids want to play with them so they get in the way at work. I know that my boo streams the Amazon Prime movies and videos through his xbox, so he watches that like netflix. I also buy almost all my high end beauty items off there (mostly hair/makeup). And lots and lots of gifts.

  13. LOL at the grandma remote.. I should have done that for my parents while they were here last week :-P

    And ugghhhhh to all the rain this week and horrible drivers. It's been taking me forever to get home, so happy to see the sun today! Happy Friday gurlie!!!

  14. Happy Friday!! I'm loving that hair look too. If only I could pull off the blonde!

  15. Son of a! Just left a long comment and it ate it.

    Love the Alex & Ani stack. I typically do three at a time because I'm a lame-o.

    Amazon Prime is my life. I order almost everything through there and cut down a lot of trips to the store. I even use Prime Pantry even though it's additional shipping. It's beyond worth it to me. I also stream shows through my Roku.

  16. Pining that recipe! Yum! We use Amazon Prime for everything- I think the biggest advantage is that you can get pretty much anything in 1-2 days without paying for shipping. I also use it for watching TV shows or movies. I hope you have a good weekend!

  17. Love the bracelets and the hair style! Oh and that dog is adorable. :)

  18. I loved my free trial of Amazon Prime when I got my Kindle. I don't know that I'd pay for it though. Although I always wish I did when I want something delivered in 2 days! hahah
