Friday Sweets

I felt like this week dragged, so I am welcoming this lovely Friday with open arms! A long week though means there were a lot of favorites to love!

1. My latest Rocksbox came in, and the pieces are gorgeous! I may need to cash in some more credits soon...



2. Wednesday night I attended the Orlando Blogger Meet and Sweet, and hung out with Deborah and Heather. We mingled with other local bloggers while enjoying sweets from the various vendors. Such a neat event, looking forward to the next one in the summer.




My favorite was the organic cotton candy made with real sugar cane. I got the lemon berry which was flavored with strawberry flakes and zest of lemon.


3. I was excited to receive my candles from Leeann's giveaway. My Old Factory candles arrived, and they smell amazing. I chose the "vacation" set which includes Sea Breeze, Hawaiian Lei, and Awapuhi. My favorite part is that the candles are made from soy!


4. Happy to be back in my workout routine after being away. I made my return to Barre3, and enjoyed yoga twice at work this week. 



5. Well it's official... I've officially become addicted to a new "trashy" show. I watched the first 2 episodes of the new show The Royals, and I'm officially hooked. I feel like it's the perfect cross between Gossip Girl and Tyrant


Linking up today with Rebecca for That Friday Blog Hop, Christina for 5 on Friday, Tif for High Five for Friday, and Amanda for Friday Favorites. Hop on over and join us! Happy Friday!

  6. I'm totally hooked on The Royals too. It's so not even close to anything real (I assume) but it's so entertaining! And LOVE your new RocksBox goodies. I think I'm finally giving in... sigh. But it's time for my Birchbox to go! Happy Friday girlie!

  7. Love the royal blue colors! Your blogger event looks like SO MUCH FUN! (It looks like it could have been part of a Real Housewives episode or something...without the cat fights) haha
    I watched the first episode of The Royals and wasn't sold. I might give the second episode a try and see. I do love me some trashy tv :)

So many yummy treats, and what an awesome venue. The show The Royals has got me seriously hooked too. I haven't seen Tyrant, but I definitely see hints of GG in this show!
