Friday Things

This week seems to have gone by in a blur and that's all thanks to it being a shorter work week! Since last weekend was pretty jam packed, I'm looking forward to a bit of relaxing. I wanted to share a few things that had me smiling this week! It's a bit of a hodge podge, with some book recommendations at the end as well!

Beautiful Weather ||

We were blessed with two absolutely gorgeous days here in the city! 70's, sunny and perfect! Of course it was just a tease because following the "heat" we got snow! Perfect reminder that it's still February and still winter! Has me looking forward to our trip to Florida in April even more now! 

New Primer ||

I spotted this primer in Sephora a couple weeks ago and I had never heard of the brand before. I'm a sucker for packaging and really liked the price so I asked for a sample and used it for a couple of days. After seeing how much smoother my makeup looked, I picked up the full version from Amazon! I'll have a full review in a couple of weeks, but based on all the other reviews I've read I don't think I'll be disappointed! 

A few recent reads ||

Now That You Mention It || Kristan Higgans normally writes more lighthearted romantic comedy like books and this was a bit of a departure from her norm. With that being said, I really enjoyed all of the characters, especially Nora the main character and doctor from Boston. After having a brush with death, she decides to head back home to Maine to recuperate in more ways than one. There's plenty of backstory given to explain the strained relationship with her sister and mom & most of all the author still gives me the the romance that I crave! I definitely recommend this book!
69 Million Things I Hate About You || Based on Nadine's recommendation I decided to read the two book series by Kira Archer. Personal assistant Kiersten wins the lottery, but instead of just quitting her job for her sometimes overbearing, but incredibly good looking boss, she decides to see how far she can push her luck before he fires her! There's more than a bit of chemistry between the two and there was just enough passion without being raunchy or dirty! I definitely enjoyed reading the book and thought the banter between Kiersten and Cole was fresh, but not unrealistic! 
The Billionaire's Unexpected Baby || The second book in the Billionaire series and I actually liked this one more than the previous book. Brooks is the playboy who is never ready to settle down, but he meets Leah who is pregnant and of all things a teacher at a catholic school! They make an arrangement to get married so that she can keep her job and of course what neither of them was expecting was to actually like being married to each other. Of course there is the issue of the baby daddy and what will happen if he comes back in the picture! I really liked that the characters from the previous book also made a lot of appearances in this book so you got more of an epilogue from the first book than you were expecting! Fun, flirty and easy read! Perfect if you're headed on a vacation!
 
Hope you have a great weekend friends!

  2. The weather was so nice here in DC this week too! It's hard to believe we hit 80 in February! Of course, now it's raining and cold haha! You always have the best book recommendations -- I will have to check these two out, too! They do sound like good vacation reads. I just downloaded Wasted Words so I'm looking forward to reading that! Enjoy your relaxing weekend, Biana!

  17. Ahhh I am so glad you read and loved the Billionaire series. That girl knows how to write some characters, right??? I am adding Now That You Mention It to my list. You always have good recommendations. That packing for that primer is SO CUTE. And at that price, I am willing to give it a try. I feel like a lot of primers are way over hyped and I have never found one I loved so much that it became a regular in my arsenal, you know? Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  20. I know! The weather was absolutely amazing! I had Aviah out all day long on both days and she was loving it, lol! Now we’re back to cold, rainy weather. But, it makes me hopeful for the glorious weather we’ll have soon enough. I’m glad you ended up liking that primer, I can’t wait to read your thoughts. As for the books, that last one sounds like a great read! Thanks for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you have a great weeekend!

  34. Yeah, I was definitely jealous of those warm days... and then it snowed. Absolute craziness. It rained all week here and I definitely felt the sunshine withdrawls in the worst possible way, lol. I don't know how you kids make it through winter.

  35. Beautiful weather in Boston is the best especially since it was a winter wonderland only a few weeks ago! We were so blessed with sunny and cool days while visiting except the last day which was cold and crummy but we were heading to the airport so it didn't matter so much! Dying to visit again but so many more places are on my travel bucket list. xo Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis
