Happy Friday Gals! This week was a total dud for me.. Little M caught a nasty cold and passed it along to me in the form of bronchitis. So most of my week was spent dying on the couch in a plague of sickness (yeah.. I'm a pretty huge baby when I get sick!). So not too much exciting stuff to report, but I am super excited for the weekend now that I'm finally starting to feel a little better. To kick things off, here are my
5 4 favorites (and 1 not so favorite) of the week:
The Mindy Project Binge Fest
The only bright spot of being deathly ill on the couch for 3 days was that I indulged in waaaayyy too much binge watching of The Mindy Project. I've professed my love of this show before, but I realized that I actually started watching it mid-way through season 2. So I decided to try out the free month that Hulu is currently offering and dig in from the start (side note, THANK YOU Hulu for saving this amazing show!!!). It was seriously the perfect company while I was miserable on the couch and I'm excited to finish it out, and then check out the new episodes that just started airing.
PopSugar Must Have Box
And speaking of Mindy Kaling, did you know that she just came out with a new book?! Besides the binge watching, the only other activity that I was able to muster the strength to do this week was a little online shopping. After being intrigued by the monthly subscription box offered by PopSugar, I finally gave in and order the October box since it includes Mindy's new book! I'm so excited to try it out and I promise to post a full review once I get it. And if you want to check out October's box - feel free to sign up here via this referral link (and I'll love you forever!).
Kate Spade Cobalt Studs
Another little sick day treat that I indulged in.. these gorgeous cobalt studs from Kate Spade. What can I say?! I was all loopy off of medicine and seeing Mindy's fabulous wardrobe for 3 days straight so I decided these beauties needed to be mine. They come next week and I can't wait - I mean, isn't cobalt a must for fall?
Lentil and Sausage Soup
When I finally emerged from my sickness haze this week, I tried out one of the delicious soups on my Fall Recipe Bucket List - the Sausage and Lentil Soup from Smitten Kitchen. I didn't think it was worth a whole post since I didn't really deviate from the recipe at all, but it sure was delicious. Exactly what the doctor ordered and I recommend you all try it out immediately!
New (Bad!) Haircut
I was pretty hesitant to post about this one, but in the spirit of keeping it real... I went in for a trim 2 weeks ago and basically got scalped! Ok, so maybe that's a little dramatic, but when you ask for a lob right above your shoulders, and leave with a bob above your chin, it's a pretty traumatic experience! And I know, in the scheme of things it's only hair and it will grow back quickly, but I'm just not feeling this haircut and am hoping some of you gals have some magical styling tips. I've been all over The Beauty Department, but sadly nothing has helped - at best, I have days where I don't completely *hate* it. Any other bob gals out there who can help me out and recommend a product or tool or two?!
So while it's been a pretty uneventful week, I'm certainly ready for the weekend! And with any luck I'll finally be healthy enough to have a glass of wine - yay!
Hope you gals all have a fab weekend - what are you all up to?!
