Five for Friday

Summer Binge

So, I have taken this whole "summer" thing to a whole new level. I have binge watched Orange is the New Black, HGTV, and  the DIY network. I have been so lazy that the couch has somehow become permanently attached to the rear of my yoga pants. Nutty bars have somehow been magically appearing in my little chubby hands and I have been sleeping in until after 9:00 every day! Oh, how I ADORE summer! Just a few shares of my favorite shows...if you haven't seen these and you're a lazy bum like I am, GET BUSY! OITNB and Breaking Bad are on Netflix, Botched is on E! and the rest are on HGTV! If you haven't watched OITNB or Breaking Bad and you enjoy something a little scandalous, they are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! But be warned...they are, indeed, scandalous!


Crowning Glory

I actually did peel myself off of the couch a few days ago and went shopping! This can be dangerous because I haven't been shopping in a few weeks. I tore up Ulta and bought the most AMAZING shampoo. If you're like me, the little things excite getting new shampoo.  You know how you try a new product and you're like, "I works...I think it works...maybe it isn't working." Well, this is the ONLY line of products that I can say I have tried and I have absolutely LOVED. So, I must share it in an effort to fight the frizz war.  If you're like me and have curly hair, you struggle with the frizz. Gels leave my hair crunchy, lotions make it somewhat frizzy and feeling gross. My hair is very long and very thick and I can barely get a brush through it when I get out of the shower. This line eliminates frizz, DETANGLES, and sculpts natural curls. It is an absolute must have.  I bought the wash, rinse, and mousse. So far, so good!

Pinterest Practice

So, while watching all of those amazing shows, what is a girl to do? Blog, of course, or, if you're anything like me, pin on Pinterest like a wild woman! I love learning new hairdos and my big thing now is learning all the different kinds of braids--I had no idea there were so many! I have been practicing on my niece and here are three pictures of my is a french braid tucked under on my niece, a dutch braid on my niece and the last is a waterfall braid on me (when my hair is straight)! Practice makes perfect! 


Cabinet Facelift 

My fourth share is a cute craft project that anyone can do to spruce up a door in their home. I did this craft with my mom at her condo in North Myrtle Beach. It was very dated and had lots of areas for improvement. In the kitchen there was a plain jane utility closet door. My mom purchased some chalkboard paint at Lowe's and some simple 1 inch trim that you would see around the baseboards or cabinets in a kitchen. She painted the trim white and my dad nailed it onto the door. After, we painted inside the trim with the chalkboard paint, creating a chalkboard on the actual wood of the door. She leaves it to me to decorate the board. I like to write little recipes on it or song lyrics! Below is the quote of the month, Zac Brown Band!


Charleston Cheese Dip

I want my last share to be an amazing recipe that I love making for the 4th of July! It is so yummy and easy to make! I have been known to do a number on this dip! It is heated in the oven and it does contain mayo so I wouldn't recommend leaving it sitting out for hours...but honestly, it never lasts longer than 20 minutes in my house! Enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed my Five for Friday! To link up, head over to Doodlebugs Teaching and share some of the fun things you did this week! Happy sharing!
