Top Five Friday #58

Happy Friday everyone!  It's seriously feeling like summer over here lately.  This week was a pretty warm one, so I've been enjoying spending lots of time outside with Selma and Dan, drinking a nice cool drink and soaking up the sun.

Linking up with MarCynthia and Court 
as well as Heather and Momfessionals

This was a great week for me, and I have lots of fun products and other stuff to talk about today.


Stanley Cup Champions!

In case you didn't hear, the Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup this year!  This was the fourth time that the Pens won, and our city's first championship since the 2008/2009 season when the Steelers and Penguins both won their respective championships.  That was a good year :)

On Wednesday, the city held a championship parade.  Luckily, I work downtown so I got to go (along with 400,000 other fans).  It was so cool to see all of the players and see the Cup in person.  There was so much excitement, and now I'm pumped for baseball and football season- maybe we can get the trifecta this year?!


Herbal Essences Body Envy Mousse

I have really flat, fine hair, and I'm always looking for products to give me a bit of volume.  I usually stay away from mousse because they tend to make my hair feel crunchy.  But, I saw a few really good reviews for this one, and I usually love Herbal Essences products, so I gave it a try.  The reviews were all completely accurate because I love this mousse!  Not only does it give my hair lots of natural volume, but it also prevents humidity frizz and smells so good.  If you're looking for a new product, give this one a try!  I just picked it up at Target and it was on sale :)


Summer Fashion

I love when it warms up, because that means I can bust out my dresses and rompers.  This week at work, I wore one of my favorite summer dresses.  I got it last year from HM and it's super comfortable, and I love the bright flowers on it.


dress : Old from HM (similar
cardigan : Old from JCrew Factory (current version)

TV Lately

I'm slowly catching up on all of my favorite shows this summer!  Here are a few that I'm currently watching:

The Bachelorette: I think we can all agree that Chad is crazy, but he at least provided a bit of excitement and drama on the show.  The rest of the guys seem alright, but are a little boring.  So far I'm loving Luke, and I'm happy they featured Pittsburgh in the last episode!

UnReal: This show is so great!  I love the premise of the second season already and can't wait to see how the drama will unfold.

America's Got Talent: It's fun to watch auditions, but there are so many great acts already that I love that it's hard to discuss it!  Some standouts for me so far are Malevo, The Clairvoyants, and Linkin Bridge.  I'm excited for the next few rounds when they start cutting people so I can really tell who my favorites are!

Orange is the New Black: I'm WAY behind on this show, but since the new season comes out today I need to get caught up!  Is anyone else out there a fan of the show?  What did you think of the third season?


Sephora Sun Safety Kit

Just a head's up- the annual Sephora Favorites kit, packed full of high-end sun screens and other fun products, is now available online at sephora.com!  I ordered this last year, and it was such an amazing value for what you get.  I loved trying out all kinds of different products, and didn't have to buy any sunscreen or skin products all summer long.  It's a $127 value for only $32.  If you're interested in picking one up, I would recommend getting it soon because these always sell out really quickly!



I hope you all have a great weekend!  I'll see you on Monday :)

  2. The Pens parade was amazing!! this is my first year living here that any of the teams have won a championship so this was really special for me. i <3 Sid. And, I highly doubt the Pirates will get anywhere this year but HEY - back in December, the Pens weren't doing so hot either & look how that turned out! Yay for Pittsburgh sports!

  4. I was obsessed with OITNB but then last season I couldn't even really get into it. I feel like i need to try again! And can we agree that Jordan is annoying on the Bachelorette? I don't know why, but he rubs me the wrong way. And Alex. He's just like a tiny nugget of annoying. But Luke <333333

    1. I took a long break and now I'm starting back in and I'm enjoying it! They just introduced a bunch of new characters so that's helping.

  5. I'm so happy for the Pens that they won! It was such a hard fought journey for them and i still kinda can't believe it, honestly. I still love reminding Kevin that I'm clearly good luck because I ran the Pittsburgh Marathon and then they won the Stanley Cup. Just sayin'!!

    I'm not sure if you'll get the trifecta as long as my Packers have something to say about it! Again :-D

    1. Such a good show! Dan won't watch it with me, so I'm a little jealous you watch with your wife :) Enjoy it!

  11. I absolutely LOVE your dress!!

    I wish they could just have Chad walking around giving commentary, because that part was absolutely hilarious. However, the borderline abuse wasn't cool.

    I also LOVE UnReal.
