Five on Friday {9/9/15}

one// I enter blog giveaways all the time, and have never won before. For the first time ever I actually was chosen as the winner! Thanks so much to Kelly from kellyinthecity.com for my AmEx gift card! Reason tells me I should use it to buy groceries or something-but that is not fun at all.

two// I got my September Ipsy bag this week! So far I really like the products they've sent me. Perfect timing too because I needed a new brown eye-shadow pallet, and I got one this month! I also got a eyebrow pallet, and I really need to watch some Youtube videos on how to properly fill your brows. 
three// I also got a new bag this week! I've been sporting a bright pink one that I love, but I didn't feel it was appropriate as the season changes. Although it tends to stay summery in Florida until November-I'm in the autumn spirit anyway! This bag is from Target, and boy did I have a hard time choosing the color I wanted. I wanted one of each to be honest, but in the end decided for the practical choice. 
four// I have done so good this week with cooking all of our dinners! I am super proud of my meal plan and how I kept it pretty simple. My favorite dinner was something I always make in the crock pot but decided to make in my new Dutch oven. I think it turned out better than ever. My crockpot always seems to overcook-I think it gets too hot even on warm. Now I'm obsessed with my Dutch oven. Got it at Ikea by the way! I had been searching for one for ages, and I felt like even TJ Maxx had them way too expensive. Ikea does it again! 
five// Does anyone else start thinking in a different accent after they watch a show or movie with that accent? Everytime I watch Downton Abbey I start thinking in a British accent! I am so scared I'm going to speak aloud in that accent...mostly because I'm absolutely terrible at accents.

    1. Kelly In The City is one of my favs! She has the cutest outfits. And having a Dachshund named Noodle is the best thing ever.
