{Five on Friday} 10/18/13

Happy Friday Everyone! I haven't done a {5 on Friday} post in a few weeks and boy...have I missed them! It is always fun for me to come up with 5 things that I want to share with you guys!! So here goes:

one: N.C. Mountains

I went to Banner Elk, NC last weekend and had THE MOST wonderful time. We went hiking, went to an Oktoberfest festival, roasted marshmallows for smores and had the most wonderful breakfast at The Daniel Boone Inn. If you ever get the chance to visit Boone, should definitely check that place out! The best home-style breakfast and dinner around!!

two: Ponds Luminous Finish BB Cream

I was lucky enough to receive the Mama VoxBox from Influenster and it had some really great products in it! My favorite was the Ponds Luminous Finish BB cream. I am not a huge fan of heavy foundations and usually wear BB cream instead. I was more than pleasantly surprised when I tried this one. I actually loved it. It takes a lot for me to love any product. I love the creaminess and the luminosity that it gives my skin. I am a huge fan for sure!! I will be sticking with this one for a while!

I received this products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are 100% mine.

three: Sweet Potato Pie Shake

I am a HUGE sweet potato pie fan!! I mean HUGE!! I am super excited that I found a way to enjoy those same flavors any day of the week without feeling guilty at all!! I haven't made a protein shake in a while but this is the kind of shake that I will be enjoying this fall!! 

four: Oh Yeah Victory Bars

I love keeping a few protein bars or Larabar's in my purse at all times! You never know when you are going to be out and about and need something to snack on. That way...I don't stop at a gas station or drive-thru and make a not so healthy selection!! Oh Yeah Nutrition was kind enough to send me some of their all natural protein bars to try and I couldn't have been more excited!! I am super picky when it comes to protein bars but this one actually tasted good and there is nothing artificial about it!! SCORE!! I even heated up the cookie dough bar and ate it last night as a bedtime snack! Oops! I don't feel too bad about that!! :) It was GOOD!!

five:  Forever 21 boots

Let me just tell you...I am a boot kind of girl. There is nothing that makes me happier than a pair of boots. Well maybe a pair of black leather boots for $39.80. Oh yeah...that is right! I was a little skeptical thinking they would kill my feet or fall apart in about a day but let me just tell you...they are awesome!! They are comfortable and I love the way they look. I may be 30 years old but I love a lot of things from Forever 21. No...not all of it is for me....but I have found some classic pieces that I love from there!! It is cheap and this girl loves a bargain!

So tell me:

Favorite BB cream??

Favorite bargain purchase for the fall??

Favorite all natural protein bar??


  1. i am longing for the NC mountains this weekend...even though i am loving the NC beach life...being 2hrs away from the mountains in charlotte was a good perk. :) and sweet potato pie protein shake?! GENIUS!! aaaah! looks sooo good.

    happy weekend!
