Weekend Plans and Some Fun Finds

The hubby is working some long hours this weekend so I get to enjoy a little "me" time over the next couple of days. Besides continuing to get our house organized and get some final boxes unpacked, I'm planning on enjoying this down time.

I picked up some reading material at the book store:

Nothing mind blowing but the perfect chick-lit for the weekend. I love kicking back with a good book and hopefully if this rain holds off, I can relax by the pool with one of these books in my hands :)

A mani/pedi is much needed:

I've had this Essie color ("Fiji") for awhile now so I think I'm finally going to give it a go. 

And now for some fun finds from this past week:

Thank you Anthropologie for this delightful bubble bath and jar of bath salts... they smell divine! I also got a large bottle of soap for the kitchen. I'm kind of obsessed with this stuff!

I discovered this new candle after randomly visiting an antique shop- I walked in and the store smelled so yummy! This scent is "Praline Caramel Sticky Buns" by Keepers of the Light. And... if you're ever in the Winter Park area of Orlando you must stop into the store "French Nest". It is a tiny shop and literally only takes a few minutes to walk through the entire place but it is full of awesome vintage finds. I'm in the process of convincing B that we need a dining table from there as well as a guest bed and a beautiful mirror. They are in great condition and sooo affordable and I love that there is some history behind these pieces of furniture. I am fascinated by antiques and find them so interesting. 

The hubby and I are really enjoying the Sunshine State and getting to know the city more. We love exploring new stores and restaurants- this is us on our way to a dinner date last night. I feel so extremely blessed :) 

Happy Friday!!


  1. I love Emily Giffin's new book! It is a great read and I already can't wait for her next book. :)

    Have a lovely weekend!

  2. I can't wait to read the new Emily Griffin book!! I'm read Cocktails for Three and all of her other books as Sophie Kinsella. Have you read those?


Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love to hear from my readers so please comment and I'll get back with you soon! xoxo
