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. We got our Christmas tree put up earlier this week! My mom, sister and I spent the afternoon decorating the tree and I'm happy with how it turned out! I'm planning on doing a Christmas decorations post with some nice pictures of our decorated tree, so I'll just post this bokeh tree picture for now!
2. We finally got some snow yesterday! I really like snow, so I was pretty happy about it! I just like how pretty everything looks all covered in snow. We have maybe 2 inches so far, but it looks like there is more on the way!
3. Since I got the last of my Christmas presents in the mail last week, I wrapped everything earlier this week. I didn't do anything fancy with the wrapping, just paper and bows. But I think they look fun! Before this, we'd had the same paper for years (that's what happens when you buy wrapping paper from Costco. It lasts forever!) And we picked up this from Walmart last year. 
4. My birthday is next week, and I stopped by Sephora and picked up the birthday gift. They also had a Marc Jacobs eye liner and lipstick. But last year they had run out of the 2015 gift so I ended up with the one for this year, so I kind of was stuck with the Fresh stuff. I've never tried anything from Fresh before, but I've always heard good things about it!

Has anyone else tried this? What did you think?
5. In case you missed it I shared a review of the November Love With Food box as well as a review of the Classic German Cooking cookbook!
Hope you have a great weekend! Do you have any fun plans?


  1. Your tree looks pretty! We are so behind this year, ugh. Hopefully, we'll get a tree this weekend. And I've tried Fresh stuff in the past, so I chose the Marc Jacobs gift. Fresh is alright, I just got kind of bored of it, hah.

  2. My birthday is this week, too! *fist bump* Thanks for the reminder to hit Sephora!

  3. Thanks! My mom likes lots of lights on the tree, and I think that really makes a difference! You'll have to post pictures when you decorate yours! I thought about getting the Marc Jacobs one again, but I really don't need two of it! I tried the Fresh cleanser once, and wasn't super impressed. I guess I shouldn't complain since it's free, but, you know how it is haha

  4. Very cool! Happy birthday! It seems like there aren't very many people with December birthdays (at least I don't know of very many people!) so it's cool to find someone else who has one!
