Back to Monday now aren’t we? I had one of those weekends where I felt like I got so much accomplished yet didn’t feel like I did anything. You know what I’m talking about? Like I got so much done but not in a measurable way. All I know is I slept in both days with no alarm (the simple joys), taught Barre, drank some Rum, got a lot accomplished for this space over here of mine, and did some serious cleaning. Like mask on the face, heavy duty gloves, type of cleaning. Here let me show you. Linking up with my beautiful Bestie B for her Weekending linkup.
So the time has been set for when Mark and I will be moving in together……I will have to eventually be saying goodbye to my perfect Princess pad where my shoes, purses and clothes have been living for the past 4 years (since I’m pretty much never home with everything I do in one day). His place is much bigger than mine and most importantly………has two bathrooms. Now it is mission organization from here on out trying to combine two households. So naturally I have done lots of research on the holy grail of all things household. You guessed it.
So after a particularly fabulous day of work on Friday where I finally finished all my charting at 6:30…..I met Mark at Target to get some supplies. We finished out the night at Home Depot. It was a really nice night….but we didn’t have time for Bed Bath & Beyond…
Anyways. So this pin in regards to showers. It 100% works. All you need is two things.
I found the cotton coil at Sally’s Beauty Supply. After casing the place up and down every aisle I found some gem of an employee that worked there who begrudgingly showed me where to find this golden ticket.
So first pour some bleach into a container and then dunk your cotton coil in there. Rim the outside of the tub with the bleached cotton. Use a Q-tip to jam that cotton into the corners. Leave overnight.
The next day (with gloves on again). Pull out all the cotton. Then bask in your Pinterest glory cleaning Martha Stewart ways.
I’m going to spare you from the before and after pics just know it was pretty amazing. Insiders tip. Use industry strength gloves and a mask. Like I got a painters mask and eyewear while executing this task. Bleach is the real deal. You don’t need to be inhaling that or your it accidentally splash into your eyes. Pinterest for the win.
Oh while I was perusing through Target I saw this.
I mean honestly. That would not last one night in my house. It would be like party for one eating a whole jar of peanut butter off a spoon am I right?
Saturday I was graciously gifted by Nichole tickets to the Summer of Rum Fest. Uber cabs has recently come to Tampa so I was excited to try them. When we were up in DC a little while ago the Uber cabs were nice black sedans. Did Tampa miss the memo or is this everywhere now? Some rando chic in her Jeep Liberty came and picked us up?
I mean the app is pretty sweet. You can see where all the cars are and you request they pick you up by just clicking request UberX. What I thought was cool is you could put in your ending point and it gives you an estimate of the price aka you are not at the mercy of the cab driver and the running meter. So basically you don’t have to call yellowcab….then wait on hold forever for the one super friendly operator to pick up and then wait a half hour for a cab to come and get you. I had a free coupon code so the ride was free. If I wasn’t with Mark I may have been a tad freaked out. It is seriously some chick in her car driving you around. However she got us downtown no problem and since Mark used my personal referral code the ride was free for him and then I got another free ride. Here is the code amandap96 it is good for up to $30 off your first ride.
The event was pretty cool in downtown Ybor. They had lots of food trucks set up and they definitely had some heavy handed pours that is all I have to say. It looked like a frat party where they were serving hunch punch by the end of the night……if you catch my drift. I loved the reggae singers.
I got to catch up with my best friend and bridesmaid Abbey!
Seriously obsessed with this dress! Get it here before it sells out.
I snapped this sweet pic of my nails on the ride over.
I am beyond obsessed with the Sally Hansen Complete Manicure line. The brush has an angled shape for easier application and it dries so quick. This is the lilac color. I wanted to try the Deborah Lippmann nail polish but couldn’t commit an entire mani to it. I love the accent nail color. I have been using every single product from the Sephora Summer Stash purchase. Full review here. Update. The MUFE eyeliner is amazing. Once I transferred the Josie Maran blush to a bigger container I use it everyday (blush used in the picture above) I am in love with it. I highly recommend the purchase.
Sunday was spent writing posts, getting in some fashion pics by my extremely talented photographer and working more on mission organization. This pic is completely unedited. I am so impressed with my new Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens.
The sunsets this weekend reminded me why I love living in Florida. I feel like I need to throw this out because it’s hilarious #nofilter ;-)
Make sure to check back tomorrow as I am back to my weekly Products I Am Digging post! How was your weekend? What latest pins have you done that have actually worked? xoxoxo
