I hope you’ve had a great week and are ready for the weekend. Fall is in full swing here, and the trees are absolutely gorgeous. I swear, I could just drive around for hours looking at them. If only it lasted a bit longer… It’s time for this week’s edition of the Friday 5+1! Let’s get to it, shall we? This post contains some affiliate links.
Top 10 Word of Mouth Beauty Products
While I’m no make-up guru, I trust those who are, and this article shares the Internet’s Top 10 Word of Mouth Beauty Products. Worth a read, and usually these types of lists are pretty accurate, in my experience.
Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life
I heard about Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life while listening to the radio, and even just hearing about it, I was intrigued. It’s written by a former CIA officer, and he imparts his expertise in ways that everyday people can incorporate into their lives in order to stay safe, be aware and avoid dangerous situations altogether. I’ve always been intrigued by CIA stories (if you’ve never watched “Homeland”, please add it to your “must watch” list), so maybe this is part of my desire to have mad CIA skills. I’m thinking it would make a great Christmas gift – maybe for my senior who is going off to college next year.
Galvanized Holiday Decor
I spotted these adorable galvanized buckets and tubs at the Country Living Fair last month, and am wish I had bought one. How stinking cute are they? And something that would be a challenging DIY at that. These are from the Homestead Collection – you can see their Facebook page here.
So cute, yes?
I don’t have a Yeti (yet), but I want one. I’m thinking maybe I can get one in order to have it for my next beach vacation, because cold drinks on the beach are a must, don’t you think? They’re pricey, but a friend of mine told me that she had a drink with ice in hers, and had it in a hot car for hours, and the ice didn’t melt! And sand doesn’t stick to it either – very important.
Tribute to Entrepreneurs
My husband shared this video with me, and as an entrepreneur myself, I really loved it. It’s inspiring, and really gave me chills. If you’re not an entrepreneur, I think it will make you want to become one.
My +1 for the week – Smart Cars
No offense to anyone who drives them, but ever since my parents’ car accident, these cars make me even more nervous than usual. They look like swanky golf carts, and I can’t help but think that if a semi hit one, the semi driver wouldn’t even realize it.
This is what I think of when I see a smart car.
Have a fantastic weekend!
