Friday Five

I must admit this week's Friday Five I am excited about.  Full disclosure...I paid FULL price for everything except #5 which I purchased on sale at CVS.  My point is, I always wonder when people review items on their blogs, especially expensive items, if they would actually purchase the items with their own money.  I can say that without a doubt I would purchase these items again as I LOVE them.

1.  iPhone 5
I have been patiently waiting..ok patient as in stalking the blogs and the Apple site daily for the past few weeks.  I woke up early this morning to get my pre-order in before they run out.  I love all things Mac, but I hate standing in line! I wanted my cash back for my purchase in my Ebates account!

2.  Frizz Free Hair
About a year a lot of bloggers reviewed a $200 hair dryer.  I don't know if it works, but let me tell you I have Minnie Driver curly hair (when the Keratin treatments wear off) and it is also super thick.  Let me define thick...if I let my hair air dry it takes 26 hours and YES I have timed it.  I paid the full price of $150 for my BarBar dryer and think it was worth every single penny.  I can dry my hair pencil straight in 25 minutes.  I might love it even more if I only paid $75, which is the deal you can get HERE.  Seriously, I have tried the Solano dryer and a few other pricey ones, but this one WORKS.  For a working mom like me it is essentially like buying time as it takes no time at all.
3.  Carseat
It sounds exciting right?  Let's just say Baby C is not as neat as his sister so my search for a cover begins.  I thought I read the description wrong, surely a monogrammed carseat cover could not be $ was!  I think these make a great gift and I always try to keep a spare in my car...just in case.  You can order them HERE.
4.  Baubles
You know I love a bauble and when you add great service to jewelry I am sold!  ParaGlam is a great combo of those rope bracelets and sparkles.  You can see all of her designs HERE and use code thanks to save 15% off your purchase and tell her Grove Gal K sent you!  I love supporting other small businesses who offer great service!

5.  Faux Candy
How great is it to eat something that is good for you and feel like it is a treat?  I am in LOVE with Luna's new Honey Pretzel Peanut bars.  They are the perfect salty sweet snack or I eat one for lunch with a piece of fruit.  If you see me on the street, I will most likely have one in my bag!

If you post a Friday Five, please leave me a comment with your blog so I can check it out!
