Top Five Friday #76

Happy Friday!  Here are my favorite things from the past week:

Food Processor

Out with the old and in with the new!  I've had the same tiny food processor since I moved into my first apartment (I ordered it off of Hautelook for about $15!).  Even though it works fine, it's super small and I always had to blend up small batches of ingredients.  I finally decided to upgrade to a larger machine that also has a slicing and chopping insert, as well as an opening in the top to add in ingredients without shutting off the machine.  I picked up this food processor from Amazon and it's affordable and works so well!


ATP World Finals

I'm sad that the tennis season is ending (for a few weeks, but still), but I've been loving the Finals this week!  For the first time since I started to follow tennis, Novak Djokovic is not number one in the world.  This sets up an intense competition with everything on the line.  I can't wait to see what happens, and hope that Djokovic will be on top of the standings again!


YSL Babydoll Mascara

I picked up the Lash Stash kit last weekend at Sephora during their 20% off sale, and one of the items was a full size of the YSL babydoll mascara.  I really, really wanted to hate this because it's expensive ($32 for a mascara...really!?) but it's amazing.  It gives me such long, luscious lashes without looking fake or gross at all!  It applies beautifully and made the entire kit worth it.  Now I just have to convince myself that drug store mascara is good enough for me...sigh...


Mannequin Challenge

I don't even care that I'm late on this, but I've been loving watching Mannequin Challenges the past few weeks!  I keep forgetting to mention it, but these videos are so entertaining to watch.  If you haven't heard of this, it's a phenomenon sweeping the Internet where a group of people holds a pose while a camera zooms around and the song Black Beatle plays.  So many different groups are getting in on this and I love them all!  


Runner's World

This month, Runner's World feature cover stories and photos of regular runners, and the cover winner really inspired me.  His name is Josh Lajaunie, and he lost tons of weight and inspired his community to get healthy by running and changing to a plant-based diet.  I loved his interview, and you can check it out here!

  1. Oh I like your Friday Funny! I have 2 little ones and life is sometimes unpredictable so I have to remind myself that sometimes just getting not as much done as I wanted is still getting something done and still good. Have a great weekend!

  5. I've been loving the mannequin challenges too, I'm like why do I like watching these so much?? haha. YSL is the only mascara I'll use every once in a while instead of lancome! For some reason drugstore mascaras are impossible to remove, so I never even bother trying them because I end up really frustrated.
