five on friday: october 3

So excited to be joining up with Natasha, April, Christina and Darci this Friday!

one. Wednesday night I went to Pink Pint Night in support of Breast Cancer Awareness! I used to work at Charlotte Radiology and they do a great job of promoting awareness for breast cancer. 

two. Got my first mani/pedi with fall nail colors this week! I got OPI's "Steady As She Rose" on my fingernails and Essie's "The Perfect Coverup" on my toes. I will say I like both colors, but Steady As She Rose isn't as pinky as I thought it would be, it looks more gray/taupe and The Perfect Coverup looks almost black when looking down at it. If you're in Charlotte, I always see Blake at Polished, the one on Fairview by Whole Foods. 

three. I don't have too much planned for this weekend because we still have SO MUCH stuff to pack up in the kitchen before the renovations start. Sunday we are going to Clemmons to see family, so we need to get it done before we go.  I want to try and make time to get a pumpkin and would love to see the movie Gone Girl.

four. My friend (and fellow LSJ stylist) Christy and her brother just published a children's book! Its called ABC Charlotte. From their website: "ABC Charlotte is a journey through the Queen City, intended for readers of all ages. Join us as we explore the destinations and events that make Charlotte, North Carolina a great place to visit and an even better place to live! Find local museums, festivals, sporting events, nature reprieves, and entertainment spots that keep Charlotte alive and thriving. We hope you will enjoy reading through this beautiful city again and again…and maybe even learn something new along the way!"
I already purchased one for my future, unborn, not yet conceived child because it is so cute! Buy it here. 

five. This is on my must purchase list! I need at least 2 bottles- one to drink, one to keep.

Half of the proceeds go to end childhood hunger.

World Food Program USA (WFP USA) works to solve global hunger, building a world where everyone has the food and nutrition needed to lead healthy, productive lives. The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide, reaching more than 97 million people in 80 countries with food assistance last year. World Food Program USA builds support for WFP through fundraising, advocacy and education in the United States.

Happy Friday y'all!!
