Five for Friday

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

1. My mom has been reading some of the Agatha Christie books, and earlier this summer my mom and brother went and saw the play And Then There Were None. I was looking for some Agatha Christie series to watch (unfortunately Netflix and Amazon Instant Video didn't really have anything) and saw that the library had the BBC version of it, so I put it on hold. I didn't really know anything about the story, just what my mom had said, but after watching it it was really good! Kind of a creepy story, but really well done. BBC shows are always good, so no surprise there, but it was just a really well done show! Unfortunately it's not available through Netflix or Amazon Instant video, but if you can find it it's worth watching!

Also, it's kind of weird actually checking out a DVD. Who does that anymore? Haha!
2. Early voting opened in our state, so my mom, sister, and I voted. I'm glad to have it done as this has been an insane election season and I just want the whole thing to be over with. I've stayed out of saying anything because people are SO opinionated and I'm tired of all the hate and fear-mongering going on. And while we all might not agree on politics, I do think this is something we can all agree on... 
This made me laugh. Calliou is just the worst!

3. Our neighbors brought over some fresh tomatoes and a couple onions from their garden earlier this week, so I decided to make some salsa. We don't really eat tomatoes themselves, but we all love salsa! I sort of followed a recipe but mostly just tossed stuff into the food processor. It tasted pretty good when I tried it, but I know it will taste even better tonight since the flavors have had time to blend together. 

So considering the fresh salsa, I'm making tacos for dinner!
4. I received my first Sephora Play! box yesterday. I'm excited to try my new stuff! 

I'm also interested in seeing how it compares with Ipsy. Has anyone tried both? Which one did you like better?
5. In case you missed it, I shared a review of the Herbal Essences Voxbox as well as a review of the September Love With Food box!
Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. Omg I love that Caillou meme too! And I don't even know anything about Caillou, but my friend hates him, so I immediately sent it to her, haha! And I somehow haven't read any Agatha Christie, even with two English degrees. Whoops! But I think one of my friends read And Then There Were None in high school and really liked it!

  2. Caillou is just the whiniest, most annoying kids' tv character ever! Even kids I babysat/nannied hated it! And his huge bald head is kind of freaky for a kid too haha. I think I read one Agatha Christie's book years ago, but I don't remember it! The BBC series was great though! And only 3 episodes so it was a good binge-watch!
