Five on Friday - May 5, 2017

It's finally Friday! And that means it's time for another Five on Friday! I hope you'll join in! All you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add the Five on Friday logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools found on Smidge of This. It's easy, and a great way to find new blogs to read, and a great way to be found!

Happy May! We're officially closer to summer! I can't wait for the warmer weather! Being able to go to my boyfriends cottage, having bonfires, getting to go to the beach! It's been way too long since we have been able to enjoy a weekend away like that, so I'm really looking forward to this summer!

I ended up going on Tuesday to get my hair lightened. I don't know if its because I had red dye previously in my hair from last year, or what, but man... orange will not fade from my hair at all! I ordered a darker purple shampoo from Lush, so hopefully that comes soon and I can try it on my hair. If not, I may need to try a hack. I've seen people online post that they mix Manic Panic Ultra Violet non-permanent dye, into a TON of conditioner, and use that as a toner.. and that cuts the yellow/orange brass from the hair. I am debating getting it lightened once more, but I'm not sure if it will help. I will need to ask hair dressing friends - whats best? Just to re-bleach the area, or tone it? It's a little hard to see in the photo, but the middle section is orange/brassy and the ends are like white! I'm really hoping some purple shampoo will help.

The diet is going well so far! We officially started April 18th, and from then until the end of April, I lost 5.4lbs. Obviously it's all water weight. I've stalled a little since the end of April, but I think I need to up my water intake, and try to get some more movement into my day. Hopefully May will go just as well, or even better!

I got contacted this week by a potential new employer! I'm excited! The company requires some testing before you move forward, so they will be contacting me next week with a date and time that I need to write the test. It will all be multiple choice - which I hate because it makes me double think myself so much! Anyway, I'm hoping it goes well, and that the location is close to home. I've got my fingers crossed! I really need this!

I finally finished reading All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda. Here is a little blurb about it that I found on Goodreads.

Like the spellbinding psychological suspense in The Girl on the Train and Luckiest Girl Alive, Megan Miranda’s novel is a nail-biting, breathtaking story about the disappearances of two young women—a decade apart—told in reverse.

Like nothing you’ve ever read before, All the Missing Girls delivers in all the right ways. With twists and turns that lead down dark alleys and dead ends, you may think you’re walking a familiar path, but then Megan Miranda turns it all upside down and inside out and leaves us wondering just how far we would be willing to go to protect those we love.

I found it really interesting, and as I read it, I didn't want to stop. Of course it took me some time to finish because I have it on my phone in a book reading app instead of a physical book, and I get distracted while on my phone.. haha. But it took a lot of twists, and I was not expecting that ending at all. Definitely a good and easy read. If you're into mystery thrillers, I'd recommend this!
