The Weekend

Monday's in the summer are the best!  Especially if you're a teacher.  Because I literally have nothing I need to do today other than go to the grocery store.  Sorry I don't mean to brag but it's a pretty good feeling.  :)

Alrighty well the weekend was a good one but a pretty plain one.  It was filled with a little relaxation and a little friend time!  Here were the highlights:



-Received my second VoxBox from Influenster!  It was the Estee Edit Vox Box and y'all I am obsessed with most of the items in the box!  My favorite items in the box were the Beam Team Hydrate + Glow, the Pore Vanishing Stick, and the Barest Lip Color.  

I've literally used the Beam Team Hydrate + Glow everyday since I got it.  It is the perfect replacement for my foundation when I just want a nice glow and a little coverage.  I just put a little concealer underneath and I'm good to go.  I wish the Flash Illuminator had come in a color closer to my skin tone.  Unfortunately I'm not able to use this product since it's too dark.  But my mom loved it!  So that will be going home with her!  But seriously everything in the box is 100% useable and I'm so glad I was chosen to receive this box from Influenster!  I received the items complimentary for review and lemme tell you these items ROCK!
- Found the PERFECT media center for my apartment.  It's from HomeGoods and I am literally obsessed with it.  It is gonna go perfectly with everything else I've picked out and I cannot wait to show it to y'all.  I probably won't post a picture of it on the the blog until the end of the month but follow me on Snapchat (Kalady88) and you'll get a peak at it!

- Had a relaxing Saturday at home.  I cleaned up, did some minor packing, and just lounged on the couch.  I'm trying to decide what book to read next and I just can't decide! There are so many I want to read!

- Downloaded Bumble.  Yes it's another dating app.  But this one is a little different.  It's similar to Tindr in that you swipe left if you are not interested and right if you are. But the catch is that only the women can communicate first.  Which for me is a little intimidating and weird since I never like to  make the first move (it's one of my insecurities I guess).  But I did make the first move with a few guys on the app and so far so good.  So well see! :)

- Gushed over this gorgeous flower tray my mom got me from TJ Maxx.  I cannot wait to get this into the apartment too.  Most of the decor items I've been buying are packed away for the move but this little beauty is stilling on my side table cuz I love it so darn much!

- Celebrated my friend Jenny's birthday with a birthday lunch with some of our friends.  Jenny has officially joined the 28 club! 

- Watched the Real Housewives of New Jersey premier!  This season is gonna be good!  I have to admit I wasn't super interested in Jersey the last few seasons but now that Jacqueline is back I'm def gonna be watching!  Bring on the drama!

-Ended the weekend watching the US Women's Gymnastic Olympic Trials.  Gymnastics has and always will be, my favorite Olympic event.  (Although the diving is up there too these days.)  So it's exciting to watch them compete to see who are next Fab 5 will be!  Simone Biles is a beast and so fun to watch.  It will be fun to watch her kick ass in Rio! GO USA! 

*******

Well those were the highlights!  See pretty plain but some gun moments thrown in!  The week is looking to be pretty uneventful too but hey, that's what summer is for right!  RIGHT!

Happy Monday! Linking up with Biana for Weekending for the first time in a very long while! :)

RHNJ is going to be so good this season! I have to admit I might have cried a little bit when Tre came home, even though I really don't like her and thought that she deserved to go to jail...
And hooray for getting some cute things for your new apartment! I loved your tray so much, and I can't wait to see how everything turns out all decorated!.
Gymnastics in the Olympics are always so awesome! I feel like I'm going into withdrawals because we missed a lot of it last time during the Olympics because we were on vacation. I also love watching swimming! It's so exciting!
I'm super jealous of your grocery store runs during the middle of the day!

I am super excited for RHONJ this season - it's for sure going to be a good one! Sounds like a lovely weekend. And I am super jealous that your only plans are to go to the grocery store today. That's the life!

I love VoxBox and that tray is so pretty! We watched the gymnastics too, it is my hubby's fav. I prefer the swimming but I will watch it all!

I scored that voxbox too and squealed when I opened it and saw how many amazing Este products I was getting!!! Sadly, I got the Flash Illuminator in too dark of a shade for me too! I was like did they even read my profile?! I needed a 1 not a 4. Loving everything else though! That flower tray is gorgeous! TJ Maxx is just the best, right?!
