High-Five For Friday!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope everyone had a pleasant week; mine was full of ups and downs, laughs and tears, but I made it through and now it's the weekend again! 

Without further ado, let's get into this week's random favorites...

I ordered Looking For Alaska from Amazon and I started it earlier this week; it's really good so far! The characters are quirky but believable and I'm only fifty pages in, but I have a feeling I will like it even more the further I get and it will probably be a fairly quick and easy read. 

Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose Kiss. I know, I know, I have a problem with lip balms...I just can't help it! This stuff is literally a dream. It's soft and creamy and lasts forever on my lips and is shiny enough to be a gloss but still nourishing enough as a balm. It's just a miracle. 

Cool Lime Refresher from Starbucks. I get a venti with lemonade instead of water, hold the whole limes, and with two pumps of green tea. It's refreshing (hence the name) and the perfect summer drink and I'm pretty sure I've already had three this week...It's my go-to drink and has more caffeine than a cup of coffee, so I can drink it in the morning and not sacrifice my necessary caffeine intake. 

Am I Wrong by Nico and Vinz. I can't get over this song. I listen to it every single time I'm in the car and it's become a definite summer anthem. It's one of those songs that just make everything in the world seem OK for a few minutes. 

This is my favorite quote of the week because it really speaks to my personal life right now and it proved to be true this week especially because something good did happen! So here's my little pep can suck sometimes and it feels like we're drowning and it's not going to get any better, but in the meantime, all we can do is keep ourselves busy with other things and just. be. patient. because eventually, something good will happen, usually in the most unexpected way, but it will. So we just gotta hold on. 

All the best,

  1. I've been wanting to read Looking for Alaska for a while now! I loved The Fault in Our Stars (like everyone else!), and can't wait to read more by John Green. I'm planning on having this be the next one, so we'll see when it happens.

  2. Looking for Alaska is definitely a different read than TFIOS, but the message is wonderful.
