Five for Friday

Hello and welcome to my Five for Friday! I am linking up with Cup of Tea , Della Devoted , and Bright on a Budget!

1. Our neighbors gave us some fresh zucchini from their garden so I made up some of my browned butter and apple zucchini bread! It was really good! (You should try it!)

And a helpful tip, but if you line the pan with parchment paper, all you have to do is lift the bread right out and you don't lose any of the topping!
2. The August Target beauty box came out earlier this week so I ordered that. I skipped the boxes from last month because they looked pretty lame. But this one is full of products I like! 

The lipstick looks like a great shade, and I'm interested in trying the organic lotion. And Crest white strips are always good too! 
3. My mom and I had some stuff to do downtown, so while my mom was getting her hair cut, I stopped and picked up some coffee from a new-to-me coffee shop. The coffee was okay, but there ended up being a cancellation at the hair place so I was able to get in and get my hair trimmed! It's something I had been needing to do for quite a while, so it was nice to get it done! The girl who cut my hair did a really good job and I'm pretty happy with the cut. For some reason I always put off getting my hair done, but it just feels so nice to get rid of the split ends! 
4. Is anyone planning on watching the Olympics? Considering all the controversy around it this year and everything, I'm not really into it. And I've always been more of a fan of the winter Olympics anyways. 

As far as summer events go, I like to watch gymnastics (my cousin is a gymnast so I hope maybe someday I'll see her compete in the Olympics!).

I'm planning on watching the opening ceremonies though, sometimes that can be really interesting, and other times it can be really boring! 

What is your favorite event to watch?

5. I only got one post up this week, but if you are interested in my review of the July Ipsy glam bag, you can check that out here!
I hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. That Target box looks pretty great, but it could just be because razor blades are so expensive on their own, haha! #sad #adulting I kept forgetting about the Olympics starting last Friday, but I've been watching it. I love the Olympics, it usually sucks me right in, so I figure this year will be no different! I love the gymnastics too, that's always one of my favorite events. I can't believe its been 20 years since the Magnificent Seven won gold in Atlanta--I so wanted to be a gymnast just like them back then!

  2. Zucchini bread that has a delicious topping??? SOLD! Anything that has a yummy, crumbly topping is such a win. It looks amazing!

  3. That bread looks so amazing! I am so going to try it sometime! I have never gotten a target beauty box, but they look super neat! I love watching the Olympics and my favorite events are gymnastics, swimming, diving, and soccer.

  4. I'm excited to get this box! Razors are so crazy expensive! And they're definitely something you can't buy on the cheap. I could never even do a cartwheel, so I am always in awe of the gymnasts!

  5. Something about a crumbly topping just makes baked goods so much better! It's definitely a very tasty bread!

  6. You should give the recipe a try! :) It's pretty good if I do say so myself! You should try the Target beauty box sometime! They do sell out pretty fast sometimes, so that's the only negative. But it's nice that it's not a typical subscription so you can skip boxes if they aren't something you're interested in. The boxes are all $5, $7, or $10, so it's typically a lot of products for the price!
