Weekly Review:

As this week draws to a close, it is easy to feel invincible. I always get the feeling that 'they' can never catch me and make me go back to school (or work), that is until Sunday comes. Since I am probably not the only one who is a little disappointed when, in fact, I do have to go back to my normal life on Monday, I thought I would make this 'review' of new things to try throughout the week. A way to make the monotony of life Monday through Friday a little more interesting.

Let's kick it off with Saturday:
It is the first full day of the weekend! Every once and a while it is fun to have a girls night and stay in with good movies and ice cream. One of the best movies watch with some girl friends is 'The First Wives Club'. In this movie three women (played by Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, and Diane Keaton) get revenge on their ex-husbands, needless to say, hilarity ensues. I would suggest topping off this night with some popcorn and half-baked ice cream from Ben & Jerry's.

Ahh, Sunday. It is difficult to cherish it while at the same time finishing up any last minute work for the following week. A good way to celebrate this last day of the weekend is to go out for brunch! I am a fan of french toast, home fries, fruit, and orange juice at a Sunday brunch! Why not finish off the day with some delicious French macrons?




I personally think it is nice to begin the week with a favorite television show. I have two favorites that air on Monday evenings. The first is 'The Following'. In this thrilling show Kevin Bacon plays an ex-FBI agent who is in the midst of an investigation about a serial killer. If you like a show that will keep you on the edge of your seat, this is the show for you. Each week I can't wait for the next show to air! Tune in on Mondays at 9 P.M. if this sounds like the show for you.

My other favorite show that comes on Monday nights is 'The Carrie Diaries'. This is for the girls who like a show that is more light at heart, for the ones who grew up in the '80s and want to go back or for the ones who wished they could have experienced it. Starring AnnaSophia Robb this show follows the life of teenage Carrie Bradshaw, the main character that appears in 'Sex and the City'. If you are interested in watching this show, turn on the CW at 9!

After watching some of your favorite shows on Monday, Tuesday seems like a good day to catch up on a good book. One of my favorite books recently has been 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' by Stephen Chbosky. This novel is about what it is like to grow up in high school. It is told through Charlie's letters and I am sure somewhere in this novel everyone can find something to relate to. (An added 'perk' of this book is that it has recently been made in to a movie! One I, personally, cannot wait to see!)

One of the longest days of the week, half way in the beginning and half way to the end. Is it too early to be excited for the weekend? Or should I still be thinking about school and only school? Wednesday is good day for a food pick me up in my opinion. I love coconut cupcakes. Especially when they are moist and thick but don't feel heavy at the same time. They are the best with cream cheese frosting and toasted coconut on the top. Happy snacking!

It is safe to say the end of the week is in sight! I think a fun way to celebrate this land mark in the week is to try a fun/new makeup routine. This could be bold lip or winged out eyeliner (for example). I am a fan of the bold lip. One great example of this is the Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in 536, Lucky. It is a great pink/coral/red color with a slight shine. The applicator of the lipstick is great for getting into the nooks and crannies of lips.

Finally! The long week is over! I say, let's celebrate with a bath! One of my favorite ways to relax in the bath is with a bath bomb from LUSH! I think one of the best bath bombs is 'Twilight'. It is described as a, "gentle, reassuring hug for the bath  to transform you from worn out to warm and fuzzy." So put on your favorite playlist or relax in your suds with your favorite book as a reward for making it through the week!

With that, I wish everyone a happy week! If you try any of these things, please comment below and let me know what you think! Feel free to leave me recommendations of your own in the comments! I would love to try some new things!
Until next time darlings,


  1. mmm, all that food looks delicious!
    Looking at the picture of that bath bomb makes me want to go and get into a hot bath right now!

  2. Love this post, I want macaroons now!

  3. I know! As I was writing it I wanted to jump in the bath with some macarons!

  4. Love the idea of a review post of things to try for the week ahead. The First Wives Club is one of my ultimate girls night movies too.
