Weekend Happenings

I have to say, Monday's are so much easier to deal with when the weekends were fun and relaxing, but that's not to say I'm not looking forward to cup of coffee this morning!! 
I purchased a few things from the Sephora sale and I spent Friday night playing with my new goodies. I'm really liking the beauty blender and new Bite Lip Crayon I bought, but my favorite thing was actually part of the samples they gave me. 
First impression is that it's so different than anything I've every used. I noticed that it was brightening and left my skin feeling incredibly hydrated, which is usually not the case with other masks I've used. I finally purchased a bottle of Glam Glow, so I'm really interested to see if it lives up to the hype!!
Saturday morning the ladies over at Pact invited me to a complimentary barre class!! I may have been taking Bar Method for a few months, but I forgot just how much I loved Pure Barre. I'm happy to report we were all sore shortly following the class!! 
That night my friend Jess and I celebrated her amazing news of moving to London with a girls night. We went to Bar Lola and the food was amazing!! We were too busy eating the food to take pictures, but we shared a few plates and the Albondigas (meatballs) were so good!! 
After some amazing food we made our way to Towne to toast a little more!! Cranberry flavored champs is always a good idea!

I was able to get a lot of things checked off my to-do list on Sunday, including bringing my wedding dress to be consigned.

 
I stumbled upon Fabulous Frocks last week and I reached out to Amanda immediately to bring my dress in for hopefully, a quick and easy sale! The soft opening of the store is next Tuesday, November 18th with a grand opening following soon after!! They carry brand new, sample and once-wed dresses for a great price and I only wish they were around when I was wedding dress shopping!! 
 
Shutterfly was running a really great sale this weekend and I finally ordered our holiday cards!! Up to 50% off and free shipping was a hard deal to pass up!! If you do order from Shutterfly, don't forget to use Ebates!!  
And just like that the weekend was over, but not before a little indulging!! 
Weekending
Hope you have a wonderful start to your week and link-up below to share your weekend with us!!

  2. I had a friend give me a Beauty Blender back in August and I swear I live by these things now. I'm not sure what the heck I was doing with my face before these little babies came into my life. And, good on ya for getting things done this weekend, we selected our cards but now have to decide who to send to/how many to buy. Ugh!

  9. I just purchased a group on for 5 barre classes and now I'm too intimidated to go! I wish you lived near me and we could go together! Why don't you hop on down to Charleston and I'll give you one of my passes! ;)

  13. Cranberry champ? Talk about seasonal fun! Looks like you had a great weekend! I will have to look in to that stuff you got from Sephora! I have a sample of the glam glow eye stuff I have yet to try...I need to get on that! Have a great week!

  14. Looks like an amazing weekend! I have still only done Barre3, but would love to try Pure Barre and Bar Method. There's a Bar Method steps away from my job, but I just can't seem to bring myself to pay $25 for a class :-P

    Yayyy for Christmas cards! I'm hoping to order ours in the next few days and take advantage of the sales Snapfish and Shutterfly are having.

    Happy Monday, enjoy your coffee which is definitely always a good idea.. that and champs!

  15. I've never tried Barre but it sounds like fun. I love shutterfly! Always such good deals.

  16. I just sent that link to my mom so she can maybe finally get my wedding dress out of her closet!

    Love Bar Lola- it has been too long since I've gone.

  17. Relaxing weekends are my favorites!! Your girls night sounds like so much fun! And what a perfect way to end your weekend, with cookies!

    ReplyDelete
  18. i;ve never tried glam glow--i don't have oily skin--but i know they make a hydrating version!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Your weekend sounds absolutely blissful!!! The perfect combo of fun and relaxing! Hope you have a good monday!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I hope your wedding dress sells toot sweet.

    A mask that hydrates? That never happens. I'm making one FINAL purchase today from the VIB sale so I'll check that out.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I totally missed that shutterfly sale and I'm bummed! I give all of Mia's grandparents and great grandparents calendars full of Mia photos (12 months of Mia, HA!) for Christmas. It's a lot of work because I "scrapbook" each calendar specifically for the family I'm making it for, but they always love it! This sale would have been amazing!
    Sounds like such a great weekend! I'm still dying to try a barre class!
    I need to try that mask!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. So this is making me hate the fact that it's Monday. I need to get back to the weekend! I did nothing nearly as cool as you did. Those cookies look so delish!

  26. Ohhhh, getting our Christmas cards ordered *was* on the list of things to do this weekend, but escaped me... Good to know Shutterfly is running a sale. Looks like I know what I'll be up to tonight! I'm so bad about staying on top of this stuff...

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the design you picked for your Christmas cards! We can't order ours for a couple weeks yet - we have to wait until my dad can take a family picture at Thanksgiving, but I'll be sure to check out Shutterfly's designs. That bridal shop sounds awesome - I wish something like it was around when I was getting married, too! Fingers crossed that your wedding dress sells quickly. :) Happy Monday!

  43. I used to do Booty Barre all the time and then I stopped because it got too pricey. I've always wanted to try pure barre to see how they compare. Looks like your weekend with the girls was awesome, sometimes those are the best times.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Cranberry champagne is an excellent idea, sounds like the perfect drink to serve at a holiday party. Going to file that one away. A complimentary barre class is always nice! Sounds like a wonderful weekend!

  45. Coffee is required on a Monday!! lol Well it is for me! I really need to get my butt into a Barre class and see what it's all about. Yes I'm a big fan of Ebates too and get so mad at myself when I forget to use it for my online orders.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Sounds like a great weekend. You are right. It does make monday a *little* easier.lol

    ReplyDelete
  47. Sounds like you had a fun weekend! We finally got around to ordering our thank you cards from our wedding, so we are waiting until next year to send out Christmas ones.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Coffee is definitely always a good idea, that and cookies! Sounds like you had great weekend, I have yet to try a Pure Barre class, but I would love to!

  49. This damn Sephora sale needs to hurry up and be over hah I can't take the goodies getting snatched up left and right. How exciting (and envious I am!) for your friend moving to London. Hello, England visit #2!?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Feel free to send me some of those cookies :) Sounds like a great weekend! I cannot believe you're selling your wedding dress. I have plans to put it on every year for our anniversary, regardless of if I can zip it up or not. haha. I still have to take pictures for our xmas cards! Can't wait to see how yours turn out!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Sounds like a fun weekend!! I can't believe you did your Xmas cards already!! I need to get on that ... :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. You always have such lovely, fun, and full weekends. Glad to hear this one was no different! xo :)

  54. Ooo yum chocolate chip cookies! I was seriously really close to baking chocolate chip cookies last night and then I was like, no better not since I've already eaten 3 mini bags of M&M's today. Curse you leftover Halloween candy! ;)

    Christmas cards! I need to do that!

  55. Love this - I am looking forward to your beauty blender review. Also I went to BU, so I used to lived in Boston. I loved getting drinks at the Eastern Standard. I don't know if you have been there but since you mentioned some bars, I thought I would share!

  56. Hiya - first time linking up! Found you through - Steph and Nadine! So, I figured I'd come and say hi!

    First - bar Lola looks amazing! We are such foodies! If I'm ever in your area - I am going to hit this place up!

    And - I've never taken a Barre class, but I am super interested! I hope our Y or one of the local gyms starts having classes!

    Your weekend sounded amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Yeah for sparkly barre socks!!!!! I haven't heard of that mask before definitely want to hear more! I love the glam glow masks!!! I seriously feel like I had a facial after I use them!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  62. Oooh what a great weekend this looks like! I'll take 6 of those cookies as well as one of those yummy champs drinks you pictures! Oh what I would do for a good ol' cocktail! Haha!

  65. I had that mask in my Sephora cart and removed it at the last minute. Looks like I may need to try it...

    ReplyDelete
  66. You MUST do a review of Glam Glow!!!!! Pictures and all. Pretty please!!! I almost caved and bought myself some today but I held back. I need to live through you, hahaha!
    I love Shutterfly and Snapfish... they both usually have some kind of good deal going on!

    ReplyDelete
  67. What a great weekend! I really wish we had a local Pure Barre or Bar Method...I'd take either one! Hope your dress sells quickly...what a great idea for a shop!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love that REN mask! I received a sample of it from my Birchbox one month and was completely hooked after one use and ended up buying the full size.And that cranberry champagne is making me excited for Thanksgiving! Sounds like a great weekend! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  69. Sounds like a great weekend! I always kick off my mornings with a good cup of coffee...or 3...

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love when you get a really great sample from Sephora! I've had a few REN products on my wish list for a while but have never heard anyone talk about them before so I'm glad to hear you're enjoying the mask so far! It sounds like such a fun and productive weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  71. My friend owns a Fabulous Frock botique down here. I bought my wedding flowers for my hair from her.

  72. I still can't believe how much I love a barre or Pilates workout. I used to think if I didn't do cardio it wouldn't be worth it but they leave you with such an amazing workout and sometimes I sweat just as much as if I had run 5 miles. Who knew? :)

    And I just started working with Borrowing Magnolia which is a consignment online shop. They will rent my dress out up to five times and then i get it back! Not that I ever had intentions of my future daughter wearing it or anything but it could make a great costume sometime!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Coffee is 100% a must all the time, but yes, especially on Mondays. Thanks for the review on the REN mask. I've used a few of their products before and really liked them. I preserved my wedding dress, but I'm almost wishing I hadn't. It just takes up so much space under the bed. My daughter or granddaughter better wear it some day, haha!

    ReplyDelete
  74. You had me at coffee! It is always always a good idea :)
