Five On Friday: Babies, Beauty, Bows

A. Liz Adventures
It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join along!

Remember, all you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add our logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools below. Easy, and a great way to find new blogs and be found. :)

I didn't want to share the news prematurely but I have been given permission to shout from the rooftops that I am getting a NEPHEW!

My sister Laura is six years younger than I am and we didn't necessarily think that we would ever be pregnant at the same time, but it has been so, so wonderful to experience this alongside her! She is wearing pregnancy beautifully (while I'm over here knocking things off tables with my gigantor tummy). I just knew that they were having a boy, so when our mom and her mother-in-law opened the envelope on Christmas Eve and announced "BOY!" in unison, I wasn't the least bit shocked, just elated! Now I want to buy allllll of the sweetest boy clothes and accessories. Oh boy (wink), this could get dangerous!

Speaking of babies, I am going to a very cute baby shower this weekend and I'm really excited! We will start off getting pedicures and then head to a restaurant for lunch. How's that for a creative and out-of-the-box baby shower?! It suits the mama-to-be perfectly because she has such a sweet spirit ... doesn't shock me one bit that she's making her special day all about pampering her girlfriends. I picked out some of my favorite baby items to give her little boy and am excited to see some friends and meet some new ones Saturday.

Beauty updates! Beauty updates! (my fave)

Okay, so first of all, Charlotte has an insanely talented hair/makeup artist, Lindsey Regan Thorne, who has actually prettified me once ... and I think I shed a tear or fourteen that night as I removed my makeup and took the bobby pins from my hair. Recently, she raved about the Revision Black Mask, so I ordered some of this product last night. I can't wait to test it out, and you know I'll let you know what I think! I love that it is easily found on Amazon and Prime eligible.

Secondly, you know I go cheap with my Hard Candy concealer (I wear shade "light") but recently received this sample for Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat. I've heard such rave reviews, but at $42 a tube, I've got super high expectations. I'll give it a shot and report back. 

Thanks for the love on yesterday's "day in the life" post. I kept it very real ... no gorgeous "big girl camera" photos, no sugarcoating, but that's sort of how we roll these days. Camille moves at a fast clip and I am constantly making sure we're playing with crayons and not butterknives in electrical outlets, you know what I mean? Some days we eat locally-sourced organic produce, and some days we microwave chicken nuggets. It's all about a balance and will be even more the case this Spring with the arrival of her little brother or sister. By the way, I love seeing the turnout of the poll at the top right of the page ... apparently y'all are thinking more blue than pink in our future!

Last night I debuted some fun new Lilly-print baby bows on my Instagram page (@alizadventures) and they sold out in about 20 minutes (!!!!!). I truly can't thank you ladies enough for your excitement and support with The Tipsy Bunny ... Mom and I have had such a great time with this joint venture!

I've already got more Lilly bows ready to debut soon, so stay tuned on Sun/Tue/Thu nights at 8pm Eastern on my Instagram page. Just curious, for any of you not on Instagram, would you be interested in purchasing through a blog post, our Etsy shop, or both?


TGIF y'all, and hope you will join in on Five on Friday this week! Cheers to the weekend!
