5 on Friday: 5 Things I’m Loving Lately

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, articles, household items etc….anything I’m enjoying to pass along in the hope that you might also find something you’d like.

Some of My Favorite 2018 Best Books Lists by Fellow Bloggers & Instagrammers…your TBRs are about to get longer:)
NovelVisitsTheMisstery TBRetc RunningNReadingSarahsBookshelves Spivey’s Picks by Ashley Spivey(IG) , GilmoreGuidetoBooks NovelGossip BuzzedAboutBooks(IG), Jordys.book.club (IG), MindJoggle, Keeperofpages ItsEitherSadnessorEuphoria AnnieBJones, The Real Book SpyCrime By the Book

Easy All Natural Snack I’m Loving
No Bake Peanut Butter Power Balls I was looking for a healthy, quick yet filling snack to have before or after a workout that includes chocolate and these peanut butter power balls are so good. They’re also quick and easy to make

Movie I’ve Loved Recently
The Mule  starring Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper. Bradley Cooper can do no movie making wrong in my book. Clint Eastwood is the focus of this slow burn thriller, however, and I thought the whole thing just worked. There’s plenty of dark humor, suspense, and bad guys to go around. Could I have done without a couple scenes involving Eastwood & MUCH younger women….ummm yes, otherwise I have no complaints. Highly enjoyable!

Recent Sample I Got at Sephora That I’m Liking So Much I Might Purchase the Full Size 
Tatcha Eye Illuminating Treatment  You may recall that I recently posted about my favorite eye creme (Algenist Eye Renewal Balm)  which I love but doesn’t do as much for dark circles. I recently got a sample of this Tatcha eye treatment which I use after the eye balm and I LOVE it. It’s light and isn’t drying like I find many concealers to be. Plus the sample has lasted a few weeks so a little goes a long way.

Podcast I’m Loving
SarahsBookshelvesLive with Sarah Dickenson. You guys know I love podcasts and I’ve been so excited that fellow blogger and friend Sarah is starting her own. It debuted on Jan 2 and you can find it on iTunes or go to Sarah’s blog SarahsBookshelves for details and links about where to listen. I love the format and I think you will too!

 

Are any of these also on your favorites list? 

Have a Great Weekend!

ARTICLE ON BOOKBUB.COM
16 Heartbreaking Books Hitting the Shelves This
Fall Anyone else like books that make you cry? I sure do and I’ve already read 1 book on this listThe Dream Daughter review next week) and have MANY more coming up over the next couple months

MY MUST HAVE READING APP
The Libby App for Overdrive  I read almost exclusively on my kindle and the Libby App lets you download free ebooks and audiobooks straight from your library! I repeat, free books. You can read through the kindle reading app on your phone or iPad or through the Overdrive app.  The app will send the books directly to your kindle as well. I love it!

Movie I Enjoyed Recently 
Searching starring John Cho and Debra Messing. I thought this was a very clever take on the missing child storyline. It put my detective skills to the test… I failed. Two Thumbs Up! P.S my husband didn’t have it figured out either 

PODCAST I’M LISTENING TO THIS WEEK
Serial Season
3on Apple Podcasts. I’m from Ohio and the entire season will be a year inside a Cleveland, Ohio courthouse. I’ve listened to the first 2 episodes and it’s GOOD! 

AUDIOBOOK I’M ENJOYING
Disclaimer 
by Renee Knight. I love audiobooks but I’m very picky about the narrator. This story has 2 British narrators, a man and a women which makes for great listening as the story is very much a he said/she said psychological thriller. I can’t figure out where it’s going which is even better

Have A Great Weekend!
