Five on Friday: {November 7, 2014}

Happy Friday Gals!  As usual, we're kicking off the weekend with our five favorites of the week.  Hope you all had a great week and a fab weekend ahead!

1| Happy Halloween from the Peanut Gallery

I know we’re now a week past Halloween, but please indulge me for 5 more seconds while I share the M family costumes from this year! We all went as Peanuts characters, with Little M as Charlie Brown, Miss Fred as Snoopy and GG and I were Linus and Lucy. Overall the costumes were super easy to make and in fact I kept second guessing my choice because they were such easy costumes! But because our little M is still pretty bald, we knew Charlie Brown was the perfect choice, and after seeing him all done up in his costume, I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! Fred’s costume actually ended up being the hardest (which is no surprise, since she’s always the diva of the group!), but luckily, after coming up with a crazy idea to use a baby sized white hoodie, it was the perfect costume base (and very cheap!). 

2| Holiday Card Swap

And now that Halloween is officially behind us, it’s time to focus on Christmas!! We are in full on holiday mode already here at TSN, with lots of fun ideas and posts in the works, but we’re most excited about our big Holiday Card Swap that we announced on Wednesday! So in case you missed it, the full details are here, and below is the link to sign-up! And don’t worry if you aren’t a blogger or crafting isn’t your thing – cards come in all shapes and sizes, from store bought off the shelf to the most intricately handmade.. so come one, come all and join up in some good old-fashioned holiday fun!

3| Sales, sales everywhere – A handy guide

With the holiday season fast approaching, it also means tons and tons of sales!! I know I’m overwhelmed just seeing all of the emails and promotions come through, so to help everyone out, I’ve made a handy shopping guide of all of our favorite sales currently in progress! Happy Shopping!

4| Sephora Giveaway

And speaking of sales… our very favorite may just be the big Sephora VIB sale. And what’s better than 20% off?! Free, of course!! So make sure to enter the giveaway we’re hosting along with a fabulous group of ladies and you could win a $100 Sephora gift card! Enter via the Rafflecopter at the bottom.

5| The Return of RHoA

And lastly, on a completely unrelated though nevertheless exciting note, who’s excited for the return of the Real Housewives of Atlanta this weekend?! I’m a huge ATL Housewives fan, since those Gals know how to bring the drama, so I cannot wait for their return Sunday night. I think I’m most excited to hear all of the crazy taglines for this season, and of course, as always, we’ll be providing a full review and break down of them next week!

Thanks to our gals AmandaJennieKarliClare, Rebecca, Katie, Natasha, and Lauren for hosting today's link-ups!
