Five-Faves-Friday Vol 2

This will be my second "Five-Faves-Friday" and I'm super excited!  I had a very bad week with Twitter...every time I would log on, it would show that I wasn't following people I know I was, so of course, I would go back and re-follow them.  Twitter took this as spamming or "auto-churning" and suspended my account on Monday...JUST GOT MY ACCOUNT BACK! Whoo hoo!
 Onto Five-Faves-Friday:

The Blemish Lotion by Indie Lee

I am "can't-eat-can't-sleep-reach-for-the-stars-World-Series-kinda-of-stuff" in love with this product. (BTW, don't you just love the It Takes Two quote? Classic movie...moving on) I referred to it in my video review as Magic In A Bottle and it seriously is.  The beginning of this post explains part of my week, well, it just turned out to be one of those weeks where EVERYTHING goes wrong. I spent 14 hours each day stressed this week, we all know stress = pimples.  This stuff has been a God send for my face this week! 

Philly Cheese Steaks
So you may be reading and saying to yourself, "Philly Cheese Steaks, what the?!" I will start off by saying I am probably one of the world's pickiest eaters. Seriously.  I usually don't try new foods, I stick to what I like and that's that!  Well there's a restaurant in town called Big D's Downtown Dive, I "liked" their Facebook page and would always see people raving about their cheese steaks, they even have a special Wednesday nights. I was very intrigued and decided to try one. WHOA! nfjgknfjkdgnfdkjgnkjfhgjfkdngdjkgnfk <-----that's how excited I got. I can't believe I have been missing out on these my whole life.  Since then I have been trying them everywhere, one of my favorites is at Subway! I have been obsessed with them all week long! 

Real Housewives of Orange County

I am a self-proclaimed reality-tv whore.  When it comes to any of the Real Housewives franchises, fugggetaboutit! I know everything about all of them.  OC was the first I started watching when Real Housewives premiered so naturally I seem to get more excited about them.  Tuesday, February 7th was the Season 7 premiere (one plus to my stressful week) and since I'm DVR obsessed, I let it record and watched it the next morning. Man, I just can't get enough of the OC! I loved seeing Tamra & Gretchen play nice and makeup at the beginning. Totally made my day :)

All of the LOOOOVE in the air!
I'm not a big fan of Valentine's Day even though I'm married, it's just not my favorite. What I do love about this month is all of the pinks and reds & chocolates everywhere you go. Pink + chocolate = Happy Marina.  It even feels like love is in the air.  All the stores have such beautiful things to make your Valentine's Day special and it just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside. I love, well, LOVE!

Zoya Nail Lacquer in Perrie

Zoya is a new brand I discovered and I'm very impressed.  This color is such a fun Spring color (yes, I know we're still in February and I'm getting a bit ahead of myself) and it's a really flattering shade on me.  Once my polish starts chipping I switch colors but I have kept applying this color all week.  I usually don't wear colors for more than 2 days or so.  I think this is going to be so cute on my toes when flip-flop weather arrives!

I hope you all had a wonderful week and have a fun and safe weekend!

Until next time,

  1. The only Housewives I can stomach is OC...those women had bookoo bucks and crazy drama. I wasn't into the others...and ditto on the Philly cheese steak! I'm all over it!

  2. omg LOVE the "It Takes Two" quote, I knew where it was from immediately!
