Friday Five

Happy Fridayyyy, y'all!
Not only is it Friday but I'm giving away $130 IN CASH! You know what this calls for? No, not a round of drinks (although those are always appreciated!)... it calls for:

1) This Friday is a particularly happy one because it's my last day of work! Woohoo! Now, I actually love my job, and I've loved working with them for the last three summers, but I am sooo ready to enjoy my last two weeks home, and to get back to the good ol' USA and back to QU! I can't wait to see my friends and to dive right back into work and sophomore year!

2) But, this Friday is also an easier one because yesterday was a public holiday in Trinidad - it was Emancipation Day. I don't know about you, but I love when holidays are on a Thursday because then it feels like a Sunday and then you have one work day and then the weekend, it's the greatest feeling ever! Anyways, I spent most of my day yesterday in bed reading, and then spending time with my parents and catching up after their most recent trip.

3) I may or may not have THE WORST concert luck ever.. (umm hello, B.o.B?!) This week I found out that Hoodie Allen, Drake, Michael BublĂ© and Maroon 5 are all performing within half hour of me this semester. More importantly though, John Mayer is performing in CT on Aug 16th, and quite frankly I want to go, but tickets are all sold out. Can someone make my life amazing and put a good word in with John's team and send me free tickets? (Hey! It worked for Helene!) So do your thing guys, cause I kinda wanna maybe finally live out my concert dream and see John Mayer in concert, and pretend he's actually singing to me! 


4) This week I was lucky enough to be able to go for a great lunch with two of my best friends, A and K. We all go to university in three completely different areas, and A is like five hours ahead of me, so it's nice to be able to catch up and laugh at old times. Things haven't always been so smooth and easy, and the distance doesn't make it any easier, but I would never give up a friendship that means so much to me. I know y'all are probably thinking, how many best friends does this girl have, but I've been lucky enough to be surrounded by some of the most amazing and supportive group of friends a girl could ask for. I did not mean for this to get as mushy as it is right now, I apologize :)

5) Lastly, don't forget to enter my giveaway with The Darling Prepster that ends tonight. Tons of ad space, and gift cards to Target and Sephora, are up for grabs! You can enter here.
Ohhh, and speaking of giveaways..
I joined in with Stephanie's 500 follower giveaway, for $130 Paypal cash! You know you wanna be $130 richer.. who doesn't! That could probably get me a John Mayer ticket (...just sayin!)
The giveaway runs for a week, and closes next Friday 9th, so enter now before you have a chance to miss out!

Good luck, y'all! Have a shenanigan-filled weekend so I can read all about it on Monday! I'm linking up for That Friday and #H54F.

  8. Thank you for the kind words, Emily! Your blog looks great! Oh, P.S. you don't need to spend too much money on your blog, I certainly haven't! Just keep at it every day or however often you decide to post. Readers prefer to have you post consistently once a week than every day for two weeks and then not for another month. Your blog looks great though, and you have some great ideas!

  9. Only speaking the truth! and aw you're too kind! It's interesting to know you don't have to invest all that much because looking at yours I would say you'd spent loads! So that's a good sign for me! I'll try to post more regularly too! Hoping that in time I'll build up a better readership that way! But really thank you for being so kind too! Means a lot! :D
