high five for friday

Last week I complained about the week dragging on.  This week it feels like it passed by at warp speed!  Once again, I'm linking up with Lauren for High Five for Friday.

1.  "Spice up your life!"  Earlier this week, Lynsey posted this oldie-but-goodie from our college days of yonder, and I just had to share it with all of you!  It was our Halloween party circa 2002.  That's me, aka Sporty Spice, with the giant ponytail on top of my head.  Love it! (Pssst...speaking of Lynsey, she's blogging again!  Stop bye and say hello!)

2.  My long-awaited Ipsy bag arrived on Wednesday!!  I canclled my Birchbox subscription after hearing lots of great things about Ipsy.  This was my first shipment, and so far I'm lovin' it!  It came with a Coastal Scents Shadow Pallette (love the colors!), Pixi Flawless and Poreless Primer (everyone loves a primer, right?), POP Beauty Mascara (haven't used this yet but I love mascara so this made me smile), MicaBeauty Gel Eyeliner (I already have a bunch of gel eyeliner but it can't hurt to stockpile!), and Lash Cards (probably won't use these but you never know).

3.  This week I signed up for Cammie's special health challenge!  It's an 8-week online competition that's based on a point system.  It costs $10 to join and the winner takes half the pot.

4.  Inspired by my recent post, I got my hair cut and colored!  It's not a dramatic change, but the color is richer and I have a few more layers now.  I think next time I'll have her add blonder highlights.  I was so happy to finally find a hairdresser in our little city that I think might be "the one".  She's Persian and amazing.

5.  My CANMAKE Lash Care Essence finally arrived yesterday!  It's similar to Latisse, but way cheaper and without the crazy side effects.  It costs about $15 for one tube on ebay (or $30 on Amazon).  After reading multiple reviews about it online, I decided I had to buy it.  I'm a total sucker for anything eyelash-related.  I'll be sure and post before and after photos of my lashes once I  notice a difference!

What were your highlights of the week?

    1. Don't worry, I'm still "anti-chop". I just needed a different cut so it could grow out in a less awkward way. :)

  2. Again, LOVE the hair.

    Ohmahgawd is that you as Sporty Spice!! That is seriously the best group costume I've ever seen! I still love the Spice Girls. I don't even care if that sounds lame.

    1. Thanks, Rachel! I've been using it every night so far. I will definitely post a review after a few weeks!! I had great results with Latisse in the past, but I just couldn't justify the price. So I'm hoping this stuff works just as well!

  8. Hi! New follower, via our health challenge!
    I have found my lash product... check out this post here... http://www.ccmcafeeperspective.com/2013/01/sold.html
    It's expensive but should last about a year... totally worth it to me!

    1. Thanks for checking out my blog! :) My friend uses LiLash! I've been avoiding it because of the price, but didn't realize it would last a year... Hmm I may have to check into that. Thanks!!

    Oh, and make sure you take your before pic of the eyelashes--I'm curious how that will turn out.
