Friday: the Golden Child of the weekdays and the day of a Beauty Giveaway

1. My view of Center City, Philadelphia, on Wednesday from Pennsylvania Hospital. I love my city. So much history. Birth place of a nation, mofos! Pennsylvania Hospital is the first hospital in the United States, founded by Ben Franklin and Dr. Thomas Bond in 1751.
2. MFD was a trooper for his second surgery to remove the screws that were inserted during his first surgery at the end of February. Two more weeks in a boot while the wound heals and then hopefully, 95 freaking days after this all started, MFD will be walking on his own again. It's been a long haul. Mobility - don't take it for granted!
3. Monday I was home sick with sinus assiness and my sleep was all screwy. Wednesday we got up at 4:20 a.m. I was up until after 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday night. I need to spend some serious quality time here this weekend.
4. The above sleep pattern meant extra iced coffee on Thursday. Thank you gift cards.
5. I freaking love Urban Decay 24/7 glide-on eye pencil. They're pricey but worth it. The colors rock. I got these two at Sephora yesterday.

I'm giving away a bunch of beauty products I received in gifts with purchase, Ipsy/Birchbox deliveries, etc., that I have no interest in. Products are full, mini, and sample sized. Winner takes all!

Today is Put on Purple Day for Lupus Awareness Month. I've got mine on! Do you read Luck Fupus by Marla? Check her out!

In the fabulous news category, my BFF Kim and Steve got engaged and I'm ecstatic for them. And Evan, Jenny and Griffin welcomed a new family member yesterday - Quinn Brooks! Can't wait to meet you, baby. Good things all around for my people. Hopefully for you and yours as well.

I hope your weekend is stellar. And I hope you win beauty products from me. And I hope you dance. If you want to.

Linking up with Joy for The Friday Five and Lauren for High Five For Friday.

  1. My favorite beauty product is eyeliner, mascara, lip gloss, and bronzer. I couldn't pick just one!

  2. Yes, I want to dance. not my strong suit, though...

  3. I am obsessed with coconut oil! I use it as a primer and moisturizer. I need to check out those eyeliners. I am always on the search for a good one as it seems they all end up in the corner of my eyes by noon. Ugh.

    Also, I'm glad I'm not the only one who had a dog who puts their ass on my pillow.

  4. I love the picture from the hospital. Beautiful view. My favorite beauty product is probably nail polish. I've gotten rid of a lot of my old ones but I still always have my nails painted

  5. My favorite beauty product is Aussie Three Minute Miracle!

  6. HAPPY HAPPY that you and MFD are home!!! You did have a damn gorgeous view!

    I can't stand when people trash talk our city. There is so much history, and hello! Philly is beautiful!!!

    Love that Rockstar eyeliner!

    Love all the fabulous news! Congrats to your friends!

    <3 <3

  7. I never realized how pretty Philadelphia was until your instagram pics. I've always wanted to visit though. I'm glad surgery went well! I want to try the eye pencils! They sound awesome. And I REALLY want to win the samples even though I have a ton I'm not using. Haha! It's a sick obsession. I'm going to do a giveaway like this soon too.

  8. Oh, I love Urban Decay eye shadow primer and Tarte nude eye liner. I have tiny eyes, I think nude on my water line helps a little bit.

    I also just tried Maybelline clean express makeup remover and I kinda love it!

  9. Ohh pretty Philly! I've only been there a couple of times but have never gotten to site see.

  10. My favorite beauty product is mascara!!!

    Happy Friday!!

  11. 95 days?! That's flippin insanity. Insanity I tell you.
    Thanks for the giveaway! My favorite beauty product is glitter eyeliner. Obvs. I have it it every color for every occasion. Green for St. Pattys. Blue for cubs games. Red for Christmas parties. I'm nuts, I'm aware.

  12. I am dancing right now. Even tho I am home, I still LOVE the weekends!
    Love all these pictures that everyone can take via cell phones. Everyone's life can be easily documented in pictures. #EVERYPICTURETELLSASTORY

    Carpe every diem!
    Love your MOMMA

  13. YAYAY!!!!!!!!!

    and my fave beauty product is mascara. can't live without it!

  14. Yay for another Friday! Thanks for always linking up! I love your posts, and I know my readers love seeing your FridayFives! My favorite beauty product is erase paste - best thing ever!

  15. Happy Friday! Yay for MFD almost being fully mobile again!

    My favorite beauty product...hmmm...I'd say that I'm minorly obsessed with the revlon eyeliner pen. And UD eyeshadows. I have one million of them.

  16. I can't believe it's been 95 days...holy crap. I bet you're BOTH ready to be over this mess!

    My favorite beauty product...hmm. It's a toss up between coconut oil and mascara. Even if I'm not wearing any other makeup, mascara helps make me look like I'm not 12 years old...

  17. Blistex Silk & Shine - can't live without it!

    This is fabulous giveaway idea!

    Have a great weekend!

  18. Got my purple on today! :)
    Sickness is stupid. But I would kill for a sick day. Toddlers don't allow them. Sometimes bosses sucks!

    Glad MFD surgery went well.
    Sleep well this weekend!!

  19. Lip gloss...I have half a dozen in my purse at all times. It's ridonkulous! Also, IDK why I entered (other than it's fun) I have a bag of some of the same stuff laying around, lulz!

  20. I also forgot to mention how fab all the good things happening is! Babies, engagements and surgeries going well! Yay!!!

  21. I wore purple today too!!!!!

    Fave beauty product - just one - that is tough - mascara!

  22. Great idea to giveaway your "extras" that you won't use. I usually pass them around to my sisters and mother before pitching them in the trash (if no one wants). Glad you can see the light at the end of the mobility tunnel! YAY for Friday!
    Lulu and Daisy

  23. Where to begin, I have so many favorite products but if I couldn't live without one it be eyeliner. Love the give away!!

  24. Fave beauty product: Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. Lurve it.

  25. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on pencils have been my favorite for the last few years. I especially love it when I get fun colors as samples with my orders. I also recently fell in complete love with Lancôme's version of BB cream. It moisturizes the holy hell out of my skin without leaving it oily and is tinted just enough. And a little goes a long way, which is good because it costs a GD fortune here in Norway. Hope MFD is well on his way to being fully mended. --- Kim Norway

  26. Currently, my favorite beauty product is all of my stuff from Lush. The lip scrubs and balms are amazing!!

  27. My favorite is my black cream eyeliner for an everyday winged cat eye look. :)
