Five on Friday - June 23, 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!

Do you guys subscribe to Boxycharm? The first sneak peek for July was released, and it's an eyeshadow palette! Aren't those shadows beautiful?! And those swatches look so pigmented! This is a Boxycharm x blinc Electric Eyes Eyeshadow Palette, which I'm assuming is only for Boxycharm subscribers. Anyway, it's beautiful, and it's welcome in my collection!

I think it's been awhile since I last updated about where I am on this "diet" journey. I'm officially down 21 pounds as of today! That makes me super happy, but also makes me realize how much more I have to go. Ideally, I should probably be around 130lbs because I'm only 5'3", but I will see what I feel comfortable at, and just take it day by day. It's getting easier to low-carb, but of course I'm missing ice cream because it's summer. I'll need to look into a low-carb recipe, because we don't get Halo Top ice cream here unfortunately, and I've heard it's amazing!

I finally pulled out one of the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponges that I purchased back in April during the big FTBBeauty sale, I did a haul post here. Anyway! I used it today and I LOVE it! Honestly, why did I wait so long to try it? It's so soft! I can see why people compare it to the beauty blender! I love that it also has one angled side. I will say I wish the angled side was a little smaller to make it easier to get under the eyes, but it feels so nice on the skin. I will probably keep repurchasing these in the future because they are awesome. Plus, these 2 were $16.99 plus 40% off because the site was closing... one beauty blender is $28.00 at Sephora! And I just quickly checked. Walmart has the Real Technique sponges for $32.97 for FOUR! I know what I will be using when it's time to purchase more sponges!

I did some online shopping at Ardene. I'm loving the off the shoulder shirts that have come back into trend. There was one at Urban Planet that I really liked but as I went to check out online, it sold out and never came back into stock. Ebates was having 6% cash back on Ardene so it worked out. Those were the four shirts I picked. They shipped really quickly too. I placed the order Wednesday night and it got here today in the afternoon!

I finally have a job interview on Monday! Fingers crossed it all goes well! Also, any of you Five on Friday bloggers have a hard time thinking of Five things to write about? There are weeks where I have more than five ideas, and then other times I struggle to come up with five things. I guess I'm boring! Anyway, hope you all have a great weekend!
