5 on Friday

It is Friday!!! Happy weekend - I hope your weekend has lost of sunshine and relaxation.

Linking up with the lovely Natasha for some Five on Friday :)

1. Hair Fail
I tried a coconut oil hair mask after seeing it for the millionth time. It was not what I envisioned. After washing it out Wednesday night, my hair was still a greasy mess. When I woke on Thursday morning, I was horrified. I had to run with a braid and a baseball cap to hide it.

I had to steal AR's Bumble & Bumble because my sulfate-free shampoo wouldn't get it out (Yep. His 1 inch hair somehow requires $25 shampoo. I know). I think I lost the value in the treatment after shampooing for 10 minutes.
File that under: things I won't try again.

2. Baking Projects
I have been baking like crazy since school ended: biscuits, muffins, and this bread. If you need me, I'll be stuffing my face with carbs. This is how I prep for bikini season.

3. New Tanning Product
I tried a new tanning product this week - 3 days in and so far, so good! Tan Towels makes a wipe and a lotion and I am using the lotion.

I want to try the wipes, but I was worried the color would be too strong for me. It was a little pricey ($20 for the bottle), but I like the color better than Jergens and the smell is SO much better. It wasn't a 100% even after the first application, but now it seems to work well.

4. Guilty pleasure T.V.
I spent this week catching up on Revenge... I hadn't watched an episode since January. I can't decide what I love more, Victoria's wardrobe or Amanda's. I die.

(I watch T.V. for the clothes. Don't judge)

5. Baseball this weekend!
The Chicago Cubs are coming to Atlanta this weekend and AR and I are going to see them play the Braves. Can't. Wait. I love baseball and haven't been to a game since last August. I've got all my baseball gear ready to go.

What are you up to this weekend?
Any guilty pleasure t.v. for you? 



  1. I put coconut oil in my hair exactly once as well. IT WAS HORRIBLE. It took me days to get it all out!! Since then, I have used coconut oil to cook with as well as a lotion, but I will never ever ever believe the hype about putting it in my hair!

    And that bread is making me hungry! =)

    1. Kate, so glad I am not the only one! I thought it was just me. It was so horrible!!

  2. I am totally with you on Revenge- they both have the most AMAZING wardrobes! And let's not even talk about their homes... I think I would die if I could live in Emily/Amanda's house. So beautiful!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. I have been using Sephora's spray tanner and it smells so great! I've tried towels in the past and I liked them, too.
    I watch TV for the hair/makeup/clothes, too!
