Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: 5 for Friday
,

5 for Friday

6:00 AM

1.  I have a coffee drinking buddy again.  My mom is finally back!


2.  Song of the week-Iggy Azalea Fancy.  I started to fall in love with this song when Jimmy Fallon did a little skit with Emma Stone and he chose this song as his first song.  The lyrics “from L.A. to Tokyo” have been stuck in my head ALL WEEK.


3.  I got my first too legit to quit camera!  I’ve blasted this over all of my social media networks both blog and personal and I’m talking about it again.  I just can’t help it.  Now, I know it’s a little baby camera (Cannon Rebel T3) BUT no more Iphone pictures and no more stealing my dad’s awesome camera!  I figure this is the perfect camera just to get my feet wet before I start thinking seriously about taking pictures.  I think my dad is a bit jealous because he’s been itching to get a new camera or just a new lens and the person who runs the house aka Mom keeps saying no.  Sorry Dad!  I will say though when my dad and I were going to get my camera he kind of crashed into the door with the ginormous cart that they have at Sam’s Club (we were getting 13 gallons of water) and he blamed it on the jet lag.  A person behind him asked him if he had a license to drive the thing.  I almost died laughing.


4.  I got my first curling wand.  I used it on my hair in the above picture.  It’s actually my first hot iron besides all of my straighteners that I’ve ever bought.  Keep in mind I only use my straightener maybe two to three times a year because I have baby thin hair (hence the constant use of the extensions) but I must say if I had thicker hair I think I would use this baby everyday!

5.  Last of the 5 for Friday are my countdowns.  I see my blogger sister this weekend!  I cannot wait to give her, her gifts!   AND (yes, I am very well aware that starting a sentence with and is grammatically incorrect) I only have 21 more days until Poland!  I cannot wait to see all of my family and eat Babcia’s (Polish for Grandma) homemade pierogi!

Also, as a side note my 5 styles for unwashed hair post was an absolute hit this week so if you haven’t already read it I highly recommend it!  It’s perfect for the hot summer months we have ahead, especially if you’re like me and you don’t like to wash your hair every day.  You can click here to get directed to that page.

    1. It's really great! From what I've been hearing from people they are saying that "you should've bought the t3i" but I'm extremely happy with my t3 to be honest.
