Top Five Friday #73

Happy Friday!  This week has flown by really fast and I'm excited for a relaxing weekend.  The past few weeks have been really busy, but this one has absolutely no plans.  I'm hoping to watch some football, baseball, and chill out.  Here's hoping that you all have a great weekend as well!


This is definitely old news, but it's too good not to share!  Last weekend, Penn State caused its biggest upset since the 60's when they beat Ohio State at home.  This is always the biggest game of the year, and for the past few years we've gotten close but were never able to finish it off.  It was such an exciting game with an incredible ending, and I could not be more proud to be a Nittany Lion right now!

Gilmore Girls Trailer

It's almost that time- time for the long awaited Gilmore Girls revival!  I am soooo excited, and the trailer that got released is giving me all the feels.  #Jess+Rory4Life

Thug Kitchen Cookbook

I love using cookbooks, especially to help plan out my meals for the week.  It was getting pretty hard to find recipes that were vegan-friendly (or that I could make substitutes) in the cookbooks that I had, so I decided to pick up a new book.  After some recommendations, I decided to order Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook, which also happens to be the #1 vegan cookbook on Amazon.  I have to say that all of the praise and rave reviews are well deserved- this cookbook is amazing!  I already have a vegan dinner planned where each person will be making a different recipe from Thug Kitchen, and I can't wait to try out EVERYTHING.

Play! by Sephora Box

Christophe Robin mask - This mask is so amazing.  It makes my hairy look smooth and moisturized, without weighing it down or making it look greasy at all.  The only thing I don't like is the smell, which reminds me of baby wipes!
Erborian creme gel - I like this moisturizer, but it's nothing life-changing.
Estee Edit gloss - I'm not really a gloss person and didn't notice any brightening effects when I used it (the gloss is tinted slightly blue to make your teeth look whiter).  I do appreciate the fact that this wasn't a sticky gloss!
Farmacy mist - I LOVE this stuff.  It smells incredible and makes me feel like I'm at a spa!  I'm thinking about buying the full size once I finish this up.
Smashbox liquid lipstick - This formula is pretty drying, but I love the color the the applicator.  It has a pointy end which makes it easy to make a crisp line around your lips. 


It's definitely feeling like fall now, which means that I'm pulling out all of my sweaters!  I actually got this outfit at the outlets last weekend, and love the pop of purple on a cool day.

What are your plans this weekend?
Favorite cookbook?

linking up with Heather and Erika


  1. I have to wear real clothes tonight for the concert, and it scares me. Luckily, I can still wear plaid flannel because it is country :D

  2. I've got no major plans this weekend and I'm a-okay with that! That looks like an awesome cookbook. I want to get the Eat Smart cookbook by Niomi Smart

  3. Oh I love the idea of doing a dinner where everyone makes something from the cookbook! I love having actual books around for meal planning and cooking, there's just something better about it than looking at a recipe online.

  4. Ahhhh you're so cute. I'm glad your weekend is going to be quiet and relaxing! And that any cookbook that has the words "thug" and "fuck" on the cover could convert me to veganism!

  5. I'm doing a 20 miler tomorrow and lots of work since it's my only weekend at home in the past 3 months. Thug Kitchen is amazing and Team Jess all the way! (you already know I'm all about that PSU victory- going up next weekend for a game)

  6. Your outfit is super cute! I love coloured cardigans!

  7. i don't know if i am team jess! i am definitely not team logan. i am not a fan of dean either. but i want her with someone new! mostly i just care about luke and lorelai. haha. cute sweater!
