Five on Friday #1

I'm linking up with Darci and the gang (aka the hundreds of other link ups) for my first Five on Friday - why not, right?

1. These wipes. 
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes Refill Pack - 25 Count
walgreens target
I know they are everywhere and you have most likely seen them / used them / think they are over priced for wipes (no? just me? ok then). I went to buy some make up removal wipes the other day and was, as usual, peeved that they are like $6 for 20 something wipes. I know that's not a lot, but when I plan to use them to go to the gym after work (no makeup in the gym, yo. I'd look like a dead raccoon in 0.05 seconds) that goes pretty fast. So I bought the cheapy walgreens wipes and have to use like 10 of them to remove my makeup - and I don't wear a lot of makeup. So yeah. I went and bought some of these beauts as I know they work, and whatevs. Sometimes homebrand is the way to go, sometimes it isn't.

2. These things! 

I have always been skeptical of these types of things actually working, and also I don't really worry if I stain something until I get home and spray some stuff on it. But on Monday (first day at new job!) I was wearing a pretty white DKNY blouse and my nose was bleeding (common occurrence whatchagonnado) and I sneezed. On my pretty shirt. I was not impressed. A lovely lady at work had these, showed me how to use it and I kid you not, 3 seconds later the blood was gone. I promptly ordered some online about 5 minutes later. Seriously. Amazeballs, you guys. Amazeballs. 

3. Entry Table / Gallery Wall.

As you know, we bought our first house in December, and I immediately wanted to fill it with furniture and decor that would hopefully make it look like pinterest threw up in my house. However, with that stuff costing money, and my husband being the sworn enemy of spending said money - that's on hold right now. I did, however, get a fancy new entry table from target! hooray! so I get to decorate one thing and I am so excited. However, I have noticed that I do not have a pinterest bone in my body, so I am relying heavily on copying other people.

So, this is kinda what I am going for with the entry table:

Entryway table: cool lamp, small dish to hold keys/change, small file holder (napkin holder) for mail, and a candle....maybe build in cubbies/baskets underneath for shoes?
PB&J Stories
So far, I have this lampshade (thanks mum!) and this pitcher I plan to use as a vase.

Then I want to do a gallery wall thingy above it. I don't want it to be crazy full on, and I also want to mix it up with photos, art and other stuff. Great wording, I know. But you can see what I mean in this picture below, I absolutely adore the style of this - overall I think I will have more stuff, and it won't be going up stairs, but I love the canvases, the different frames, the letter, and the little 'home' and 'it's a wonderful life' hangy thingys. If anyone knows where I can get things like that - hit me up. I have looked to no avail. 

i really like this wall of photos etc.
I do not know where this pic is from! If you do, let me know and I'll update.

4. This print from ShopLittles:

Nursery Art - Inspired by- Disney Pixar Movie -Up-Print- 8 x 10
This print

So, as I said above, I want a mix of art and photos. I wanted a bunch of things - I think I have more ideas than I do wall space - like KC's favourite book series print, doctor who stuff, maybe a pride and prejudice print.. So much. Anyway, I also wanted something Disney-ish but not in your face Disney, if you know what I mean. Then I saw this print - how cute is it! KC has a soft spot for the movie Up, and we just bought our first house and I love that its so understated and pretty. This listing is for 8x10 and I didn't want anything that big so I sent a quick note and asked if she would do a 5x7 and she totally did, and created a custom listing for me, stat. Can't wait to receive it - now to find a pretty frame for it!

5.  This pretty little beauty.


Birthday present from the hubby. He did good. I love my hubby, but he kind of sucked in the present giving area when we got together. He tried (he actually did really good our first Christmas) and I am by no means trying to say that presents mean more than presence, or other important things - just that I love birthdays and Christmas and I love giving presents - and I am not really a flowers kinda gal. After some not so subtle hinting, he popped off to Sephora. I have been having lots of fun playing with it and trying different looks this week - I am by no means good at doing makeup, but have been learning lots thanks to youtube and friends. It helps when you have good products, and this is definitely a good product! I am thinking about getting the basic one as I can never have too many browns in my makeup stash. And its cheaper, so boom.

First Five on Friday a success, I do think!
