My First - Five on Friday!

I have been following Renee from See The World in Pink since I started blogging back in 2014. Over time I noticed that she participates in a link-up called Five on Friday. This is with other bloggers, who share five things on their mind every Friday. At the bottom of the post you add their logo, and everyone can connect with one another that way, and find new bloggers to connect with. I've always loved the idea of this, and this New Year I have made one of my resolutions to start blogging more. I will hopefully have more time this year, actually... I will make it my mission to blog more this year. Renee, I hope you don't mind that I'm going to join in on this!

Today is Friday, January 13th! Is anyone here following me, superstitious?! I don't feel like it's a big deal, at least I try not to let it be. This is my first Five on Friday post as you read above, and I'm really excited to start blogging more. I really hope I can keep up with doing this every week! Are there any New Year resolutions or goals that you have set for yourself? Related to blogging, or just anything in general.

I actually really wanted to participate last Friday, which was January 6th, and the first Friday of the month. But, we received a phone call on January 2nd that my Grandfather had passed away. Friday was the funeral, so unfortunately this was not at the top of my list of things to do. As sad as the situation was, it was nice to finally see so many of my family members that I had not seen in a long time. These flowers were from the funeral. The children/grandchildren were all able to take some of the flower bouquets home. I picked this one. It's so beautiful. There were also some larger flower bouquets left over, and they were donated to RVH  in Barrie.

I wanted to put myself on a NO BUY for January, and I've already failed at that! I managed to snag some items online from the Lush BOGO sale, and Beautylish released their Lucky Bag for 2017. I purchased that on Boxing Day but it should be here any day now - even though that purchase was in December, it still feels like a cheat. I really need to stop buying so much because I have so much stuff to get through. I am excited though to see what I received in my Lucky Bag. Lucky Bags are a New Year's custom in Japan which inspired Beautylish to create our own. These mystery bags are filled with at least $150 worth of full size products. Some bags will get extra lucky!

Have you guys been watching any new television series since there was such a huge time off between Christmas and New Years? My boyfriend and I started watching a show called You're The Worst. I had never heard of it before until I was getting my hair done, and the hair dresser mentioned to me that she had just started watching it, and that it was good. I decided to turn it on when I got home, and we've made it to the third season in about 3 weeks. Taken from IMDB: "You're the Worst" isn't a typical romantic comedy. Narcissist Jimmy Shive-Overly thinks all relationships are doomed from the start, while stubborn cynic Gretchen Cutler is certain that amorous bonds aren't her thing. When the two meet at a wedding, though, there's a sea change: They go home together and find they're beginning to fall for each other. Jimmy and Gretchen navigate fear, heartbreak, ardor and other feelings, while their situation seems to establish that nontraditionalists sometimes make great partners."

I recently purchased my own domain name, if you haven't seen! I'm still using blogger to create my posts, but now they redirect to www.deidresdiscoveries.com. I'm really excited and I hope this helps me make some bigger moves in the future! Along with the new domain name, I also opened up a Facebook page here. I'd really appreciate it if you would like it! There is also a new layout on my page, and I think I need to edit it a little. My photos seem really large, and I will have to do some research on how to fix this. Unless anyone has any tips?!
