Mermaid Halloween Costume & Colorful Mermaid Wigs

It's been many years since I purchased a Halloween costume but this year I decided to be a little festive and pull together a mermaid costume with Disney's Little Mermaid as an inspiration.

Weekend: Purple Hair Don't Care

The weekend was exactly what I wanted with lots of relaxing, some pampering, shopping the President's Day sales, and dinner with friends.

I mentioned last week that I went to Tampa on Thursday night for a work conference which was at a beautiful resort on the water.  My coworker and I grabbed a bite to eat and caught a beautiful sunset before the conference kicked off. I didn't get home until super late so I was too exhausted to do anything on Friday night.

On Saturday I had a hairdresser appointment to get my highlights touched up and added in some purple/lavender streaks to change things up a bit. I love how it turned out!

I got roped into the President's Day sales at Target and Kohl's and picked up a few goodies for myself!

We had dinner reservations on Saturday night with our neighbor friends at a new tapas-style restaurant. The food was amazing and we really enjoyed their company. My neighbor guy especially is hilarious so I was laughing for most of the night with his funny comments and jokes.


Sunday was all about relaxing and being productive. I finished off a work project, got my blogging on, and did the usual food prep, laundry, and other adulting stuff one is required to do.

Weekend Happenings

Before I get into my weekend recap, I just want to shout out the birthday girl Kate...wishing you a HAPPY birthday today and wonderful week ahead! xo

About the weekend...
On Friday after work K and I went out to the new Duffy's Sport Bar & Grill in our area for some happy hour, casual dinner, and light sports watching to unwind after a long week. The firecracker boneless chicken wings were amazing plus you can't beat 2 for 1 drinks.

On Saturday morning I went to my hairdresser to get some highlights and cut a few inches off. Who doesn't love walking out of the salon with a fresh new cut? I took an obligatory selfie which I'm supposed to be trying to master per Kerri's selfie tips but still not quite there yet.

I was then off to Marshall's to pick up a few things and lunch was had at Pom Pom's Teahouse for an amazing turkey & cranberry chutney sandwich and lavender iced tea. Saturday afternoon was spent at home relaxing, blogging and attempting to take Lola for a walk.

It started raining and storming again on Saturday evening so it made for a quiet night at home. I used the time to start researching and planning our trip to NOLA. Thanks to all the ladies who gave me some awesome suggestions! I now have a game plan of places to see, restaurants to eat at, and we also have a historic ghost tour booked for K's birthday.

We did a ghost pub crawl in Savannah, GA for my 30th birthday a couple years ago which was a blast (Savannah trip recap) so I can't wait to learn more about the history and spookiness of New Orleans.

We also tried out Key West Southernmost Wheat beer on Saturday night which is delish!

Sunday was a great day for sleeping in and then being productive around the house. We had some eggs, bacon, and cantaloupe for breakfast, took Lola out for a walk, and then I finally made use of my Conair Foot Bath and did an at-home pedicure while watching Orange is the New Black.

It was the perfectly relaxing Sunday to recoup for this work week!

Beauty & Skincare Wishlist

I've had my eye on the Naked 3 palette for a while now but only recently ran across most of the other products and would love to take them for a whirl. Butter London's at-home gel nails to save money instead of going to the salon, Batiste's plumping hair powder for more hair volume and Benefit's zero shine agent to prevent a shiny face all sound pretty amazing!

Also, having recently hit 30, I think it's time to try out a good nighttime face moisturizer to start firming and avoiding wrinkles from now. Lastly, bright lips, tanned legs and sweet smelling scents are a must for the summer.

Have you tried any of these products and would you recommend any of them?

Weekend Fun in Sun-Storm State

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I had a relaxing one spent in and around town, which is all that I was hoping for and more. If you know me, you know these weekends are few are far between.

On Friday night, K and I went out for a dinner date to one of my favorite restaurants and then rented Delivery Man (with Vince Vuaghn) from Redbox. I was pretty exhausted from the week and was in need of a chill night at home.

On Saturday morning I got woken up from a surprise phone call from one of my best friends, who currently lives in the UK, to ask me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding next year Barbados! So ladies and gentlemen, I'm now a bridesmaids x3 next year in both Trinidad and Barbados. Donations are welcomed at this time!

Totally kidding and totally honored to be there for three special girls that I've spent half my life with getting up to mischief, sharing girl advise and now seeing each other get married to their loves.

As you may or may not know, I'm no longer a natural blonde so I have to pay to get highlights done. My hairdresser is pretty awesome though so I love catching up with her while getting beautified.

On Saturday afternoon we headed over to Kate's house for a pool party & to celebrate her husband's birthday. The weather was pretty shitty so we didn't get much pool or sun action but it was a great time catching up. I actually didn't get any photos of our night, except of her ham, Roxy, who's always such a trooper and loves hanging out with everyone.

Sunday was rainy and gloomy so it was a nice lazy day at home spent cleaning, blogging, prepping food for the week and just hanging out. We're going to be traveling for the next few weekends so my house needed the TLC.

How was your weekend?

Weekend Recap: Beach Weather is Here

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
I finally made it to the hairdresser to my hair done before I head to New Orleans for a bachelorette on Thursday. Got some highlights and side bangs. The salon I go to also has the cutest boutique that sells pretty statement necklaces and jewerly so it's such a temptation not to buy everything.
Still have swollen cheeks over a month after the wisdom tooth surgery. Ugh!

On Saturday night, K and I went to Buffalo Wild Wings to watch the basketball games and have some dinner & cold ones.

On Sunday morning we headed out to the beach. Nothing makes me happier in life than relaxing on the beach so I'm excited the weather is finally warm enough in Florida to start working on that tan!
It was a gorgeous day and the perfect end to the weekend!
