Five for Friday

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

1. My sister and I finally went and saw the Wonder Woman movie earlier this week. I'm not really into super hero movies but I thought it was pretty good. Have you seen it?

2. We had some fresh strawberries so yesterday I made a white almond cake and some whipped cream to eat with our strawberries and it was so good! I had never made this cake in a bundt pan before, and it came out kind of dense, but still really good! 

We were going to do strawberry shortcake, but I couldn't find any of the little cakes and the biscuit ones just didn't sound that good, so I just decided to try the almond cake. 
3. I picked up this body wash earlier this week and it smells so good! It kind of reminds me of those gummy peach rings.
4. We had a very rude wake up call Wednesday morning when our smoke alarms went all Stranger Things on us. Now, let me preface this by saying that I knew there wasn't a real fire or anything because the alarm wasn't exactly going off per se, it was like one would go off after the other until they would all be going off and then stop for a few seconds, and then they would go off again, and then stop. 

It just wasn't making the same noise it makes when it's actually going off, and it wasn't beeping like it does when the batteries are dying. It all lasted for like 10 minutes and then stopped completely. It was super weird! 

We walked all around the inside and outside of the house, and my brother even brought the ladder upstairs and checked in the attic just to make sure there wasn't anything up there that was setting it off.

So, unless someone from the Upside Down was trying to contact us, I don't know what happened. And it totally felt like the below gif!

5. In case you missed it, I shared a review of my June Ipsy glam bag and a post with some cute squirrels!
Have a great weekend!


  1. Ooh, I've never seen that body wash brand before,but I'm a fan of anything peachy! (And now I'm craving strawberries!)

  2. It's a French brand that is new to the US! They have several different scents (I have a vanilla one, but I don't like it as much as the peach). I try to eat as many strawberries as I can in the summer! Haha they are just too good!

  3. That almond cake looks so yummy! And with strawberries and whipped cream?? Yum! I would have been flipping out if ours would have been doing that. Creepy!! Hope you're having a good weekend!

  4. It was very good! Way better than those little cakes you can buy at the grocery store!
    I know! It was so weird. Definitely not something I want to deal with again!
