Five on Friday and a Spring Giveaway!!

Happy Friday Lovies! I don't know about you but I am particularly excited it's almost the weekend because our weather forecast is beautiful! We have a high of 80 for today, tomorrow and Sunday! Perfect!! Bring on the sunshine. Can't wait to put my bathing suit on and read a book by the pool.

Today I am joining up with some lovely ladies for an awesome Spring giveaway! Scroll on down to read more about it and enter! As per usual I am linking up with the girls for Five on Friday with Darci, Christina, April and Natasha!

This week is a focus on my favorite current things...
One~ DIY Dryer Sheets

I recently created a new DIY board on Pintetest, some are easy and some... Well they will most likely just be me wishing and dreaming I A. Have the ability to do them or B. Have the time to do them. I did however try out a rather fast and easy project in which you make your own dryer sheets. The pros to the project are better smelling clothes and money savings.
You need a total of four things:
-1 empty spray bottle
-1 bottle of fabric softener
- water
- washclothes

Directions- fill your spray bottle half way with fabric softener and half way with water, then shake to mix it all together. I used one washcloth at a time and sprayed it a few times with the mixture and put it in the dryer with my wet clothes instead of throwing in my usual dryer sheet. You can use each washcloth four or five times before you need to wash it and start over.

Result: Amazing smelling clothes!!

Two~ Almond Joy Coffee Creamer
I am seriously obsessed with this coffee creamer. It tastes so good and you all have to try it!


Three~ Ultimate Makeup Blender
I use a liquid wand concealer and usually blend it into my face with my fingers. Sometimes I do an ok job and sometimes I have little discolored circles wherever my blemishes are.  This makeup blender is awesome and works soo much better than my fingers. I found it at Publix believe it or not!


Four~ Yoga
Yoga has got to be one of my favorite things ever! It does wonders for my mind and body. It is the only time I can actually turn off my brain. I joined a new yoga class about a month and a half ago and I don't think I will ever stop. I am sleeping much better, my body feels more lose and relaxed, I have more energy and I just overall feel so much better. 

Five~ Rainboots April showers bring May flowers
Rain boots are one of my favorite accessories and I hope you love them too because these lovely ladies and myself are hosting a giveaway!! Enter now to win a pair of Hunter Boots!

    1. Well I haven't actually washed it yet lol but I think soap and water or baby shampoo. That's what I use on my makeup brushes. Hope you have a great weekend!

  10. Obsessed with those boots; crossing my fingers. Coffee is the best, and always needs some creamer. I've never tried Almond Joy; my current favorite is sweet cream. Have a great weekend sweet girl!

  12. What a fun DIY, I never bother grabbing dryer sheets myself...nice to be able to whip up a quick DIY.
    I've heard great things about the beauty sponge.
    I totally second the sleep after yoga. I use to do like a rewind session of yoga before bed when it was free on netflix. Butts took off the work out streaming though.
    oooh hunter boots =)
