Friday Five — link up #32

Friday, August 9, 2013

In the first few days of August, we've officially realized that the dog days of summer are here. What happened to our July weather? I don't like these hot days... bring on FALL!

the Sowell life

the Sowell life's Friday five...

1) {Finger and Toes ready for football} Y'all I finally found the perfect color to celebrate MSU football — Essie's Fishnet Stockings. I can't wait to paint them with my new nail polish for the first game!! #hailstate

2) {New Smell Goods} I found two new candles that I love at Target. They didn't really have any of their Fall candles out, but both of these just have a really clean and calming scent. One is in our living room (be amazing), and the other (ginger iced tea) in our bathroom. 

3) {Home Cooking} I've been pretty lazy when it comes to cooking, but this week I did make our favorite homemade lasagna, only I made half the size I normally make. It was soooo good. 

4) {Craving Fall Foods} I mentioned in yesterday's post that I'm ready for soups and stews this Fall. And after I started thinking about it, I decided that I wanted one of my favorite soups. So we enjoyed potato soup for dinner one night.

5) {Ulta is calling my name} I got my newest Ulta magazine in the mail this week and found quite a few things that I think I need, and want to try. Plus, I've got a coupon that I can use. #score I really want to try the Butter products and the new Bare Minerals concealer kit. Have y'all used any of these products... what do you think of them?

Now, who's ready to link up?!! Thanks for stopping by, linking up, sharing the link up on your blog and on twitter! I appreciate y'all spreading the word more than you'll ever know!! Enjoy your weekend, y'all! 


  1. No matter the season, I love potato soup. That nail polish is a great color and I love ginger anything so I think I need to get to Target soon! Happy weekend!

  2. I'm ready for fall too. Cracker Barrel already put out their fall candles. I think the one we buy every year is called Harvest. Actually we buy about four because the hubs burns them *all*the*time.* When I can roll out of the house in a sweater, jeans and boots, you know I'm happy.

  3. I need to check out those candles at Target! My favorite thing about this post is how you said there are some things at Ulta you need. LOL. Silly Joy, we never NEED anything at Ulta... I know this because I say the same thing ;) Happy Friday!!!

  4. Oh my gosh! I've got to have that tangerine and bergamont candle!!!!! I'm so jealy!!!

  5. Fall is definitely my favorite season! I can't wait. My favorite fall candle is actually a cheapo Mainstays one from Wal-Mart called Mulled Cider. It smells incredible! I have my sister to thank for that obsession. She stocks up every year and has one in every room of her house. I can't wait for the fall Scentsy scents to come out, either. Happy weekend!

  6. I'm sooo ready for fall. But I know I've mentioned that to you. :)

    Your candles sound lovely. I need some new ones for this fall!

  7. Bath and Body Works is having a HUGE sale, and I bought all types of pumpkin candles and soap. They have a TON of new scents, and I was thinking of you as I sniffed them all!!!!

  8. I totally love Ulta!! And super pretty red nail polish!
    Do you prefer candles over Scentsy?

  9. Fall foods are a category (craving) unto themselves. I'm ready to decorate for fall already, though! Maybe next week :)

  10. Ummmmm...HELLO! That nail color is calling my name! I suppose I'll wear it in your honor when I miss the blogging conference and you take tons and tons of notes for me. Or better yet, just record it all. In return, I promise to ring my cowbell extra loud for you.


Thanks for taking a moment to read the Sowell Life.
