Outdoor Fun

On Saturday night we were invited to the outdoor game at Dodger Stadium to see our beloved King's play. I got more excited as the day went on and had such a great time despite the final score. The weather was awesome, I think it was even warmer than being inside Staples center. To show how great our weather was they had people playing volleyball in the outfield before and during the periods.
This was the view going into the game, straight stunning.
                                                    Hoping to get this one on a canvas.
Even made it on the news...
One day closer to the weekend!

Spa Day

Spa days are going to be my new thing! Well, every few months anyways!! I have a stressful job (911 dispatcher) and who doesn't have other worries so I need massages on a monthly basis.  I normally hit the Massage Place since its affordable, usually around $55 with tip and it's just convenient. 

I was scanning Travel Zoo and came across a great deal for one of the nicest Hotel and Spa's in Santa Barbara. It was $120 for an hour massage, access to the entire spa and a glass of bubbly. Yes please!

Headed north with 2 coworkers, stopped for an amazing breakfast with mimosas, and hit the spa.
Massages, time by the pool, a dip in the hot tub, and a 4 day weekend? Amazing.

Just found another great spa deal on Group On, gonna save it for my 30th!

Have you heard of ipsy??

I was subscribed to Birchbox for about 5 months before I made the switch to ipsy and seriously LOVE it. For $10 a month, you either love your whole bag, or the majority of it. You can even update your profile to make sure you receive stuff you actually want and will use. 

My favorite item to date?

I would have probably never bought it to try unless I was sent it. I love it and will be going to Ulta this weekend to buy it. What is even better? You get coupon codes for the items you receive. 

Here are prior months...

(yes, the glitter eye shadow was a bit young for me)

One of my favorite months!

I am never sad about receiving mascara!!

Well what are you waiting for? Check it out here!

What's on your lips?

My obsession with Eos lip balm is growing by the day. I have always been one to have at least 2 chap sticks in my purse and feel like I am doing to die if I have nothing to put on my lips. I go thru phases of the brand I am loving, but right now I have enough balms to last me the rest of the year! 

1. Strawberry Sorbet
2. Sweet Mint (my absolute favorite)
3. Pomegranate Raspberry (have yet to try)
4. Honeysuckle Honeydew (not my favorite)
5. Lemon Drop 
6. Summer Fruit
7. Vanilla Bean (2nd fav)
8. Passion Fruit

The 2 I am missing is Blueberry Acai and Medicated Tangerine... anyone try those yet? 

Which is your favorite??

Get Yo Coffee!!

Thanks to Alison for sharing that Keurig offers better deals on their website and more selections, off to their website I went! I love a good k-cup and I am so excited to try her favorite kind! 
Also got a 5 pack of these to try..
For a 24 pack and the 5 pack, my grand total was only $15! Found a code for free shipping, "warmer".
Happy Tuesday!

One thru Five

Dropped the ball on blogging this week, not too much going on besides work. It's another working weekend for me so I'm not as excited as y'all. Counting down until Monday for sure!
Let's get on to 5 things Friday

1. Hockey game with my dad. So thankful for the time spent with him.

2. The gorgeous weather. I know some are bitching, but I'm loving it!

3. New Shampoo & Conditioner. Can't wait to see if it helps extend my color. Not gonna lie, I was drawn to the pretty bottle initially!

4. French Toast for dinner and snuggling with my Frap!

5. Weekly bubbly. Oh so good and only ten bucks.

Weekend Finds

So sad to see the weekend end. But... this week isn't looking too shabby! Only working a half day today before taking my dad to the King's game tonight. Can't wait!
We scored at Marshall's yesterday! Saw this a week ago and went back hoping it was still there.

Also found this cute sign to hang my jackets on.

Then we hit Bed, Bath & Beyond with our 20% off coupons and got new toothbrushes and this sign for our extra room.

Picked up coffee to visit with a friend and saw this mug I had to have!

Definitely a successful weekend shopping and finding goodies!
Happy Monday friends!

What I've got my eye on

Being bored at work on Sunday led me to browsing Etsy which led to spending some green.
I bought two new iPhone cases which were both priced great, I will be stalking my mailbox daily waiting for these!
(with my name of course)

Up next, this cute heart dish I found at Marshall's. I hope to bake a cute cake!

Also from Marshall's, cute wrapping paper. I could have a hundred rolls and still want more. I just need something to wrap....

One of my many necklaces from Origami Owl in which I'll be rocking thru Valentine's day. For any of my fellow bloggers, if you want the hook up on this one let me know.

One day closer to Friday!

New Year

Hope everyone had a fun New Years Eve and is excited for what the new year will bring. I sure am!
I am also happy its Friday and that I took tomorrow off! It will help make the working weekend go a bit faster. 

Here goes my 5 things Friday.

Few of my favorite stocking stuffers. I may or may not have stuck 2 of those in there myself.

Tacos. My husband makes them so delicious.

Another favorite gift.

Once in a lifetime tickets to an outdoor King's game. (I know Deena can appreciate this!)

Origami Owl charms for Valentines Day. Love all the pink!

Have a great weekend!
