Welcome to 5 on Friday, a little list of things I’m enjoying lately. I got this idea from Tim Ferris who sends out his 5 Bullet Friday posts to all his email subscribers and Laura Tremaine’s Secret Posts. If you’re interested you can check out Tim’s website at Tim.blog and Laura’s at 10thingstotellyou.com . I thought it would be fun to do a short and simple posts of things I’m enjoying lately. Every week you’ll find different content…could be books I’m reading, movies, tv, recipes, quotes, skincare, articles, household items etc….anything I’m enjoying to pass along in the hope that you might also find something you’d like.
Article I Agree with From Anne Bogel at ModernMrsDarcy.com
The Single Best Thing You Can Do For Your Reading Life. I completely agree with this article and found that by following this strategy I have improved the quality of my reading life. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this in the comments!
Soapbox Article About Barnes & Noble by Author Robin Barone That I Found So Spot On
What I Learned From Visiting B&N Stores I loved this article! The author makes so many spot on points about B&N such as their lack of customer service as well as the fact that their employees don’t seem to like talking to people. So True! I live outside of a big city and I’ve been to 3 different B&N’s in the past month and NOT ONE EMPLOYEE in any of them asked if I needed help or tried to engage me to, you know, sell books. Also, they all looked liked they hate their jobs. Ok, I’ll get off my soapbox now but I really wish we had an independent bookstore in my city!
Article that made me say WOW
Goodreads #1 Reviewer Emily May Reveals Her Trick to Hitting Her Reading Goal Every Year I do follow Emily and enjoy her reviews. I had no idea anyone could have that many followers! Amazing.
Podcast I’m Loving
Crime Junkie Podcast with Ashley Flowers. I love true crime and this is one of the best true crime podcasts I have stumbled upon. It’s very well done and Ashley gives different takes and details on cases I thought I knew everything about…I highly recommend giving her 2 part episode on the Laci Peterson case a listen!
Organic All Around Moisturizer I’m Loving
Cliganic 100% Pure Jojoba Oil I was on the hunt for an all natural multi use moisturizer and got this last month. So far I’m using it under my eyes in addition to under eye creme at night (I read this is an excellent wrinkle fighter!), for my hair before blow drying, on my cuticles at night, as a body oil after a shower and as an extra lip conditioner. I love it and find that’s it’s really helping

Have a Great Weekend!!
