Hi Everyone! It’s Friday and I’ve made the return to my Five on Friday.
1. Holly Day Market Time
It’s time to do some Christmas shopping and the Holly Day Market is the perfect place to start.
Presented by the wonderful ladies of the Junior League of Lexington this is a fantastic event held at the Alltech Arena. You can truly get all of your Christmas lists completed while having the opportunity to shop wonderful boutiques and shops all in one area. This is one of two fundraisers that the Junior League presents each year which enables funding for local agencies in the Central Kentucky area.
2. Starbucks – Buy one get one Free
3. Sephora – The Toy Store for Women
I truly shouldn’t be as excited as I am but this week I became a VIB at Sephora. What this means is that I have spent entirely too much on make-up and other beauty supplies this year but as one of my friends stated “Sephora is a toy store for women.” Because of my new status, I receive a make-over, 10% off my next purchase and other fabulous goodies along the way.
4. What You Should Be Reading
Thanks to a previous Five on Friday, I became familiar with The Skimm. By signing up, you will receive a daily e-mail which gives you a basic run down on all of the important headlines It’s been called a necessity for a conversation starter and I love the fact if you want additional information that it provides you with links. I must add that there is also some humor thrown in and who doesn’t need that when reading about the world. I highly encourage you to try it.
5. Finding Some Calm
This week I’ve begun the 21 day meditation challenge with Oprah and Deepak Chopra. I have practiced forms of meditation over the years but am feeling especially at this time in my life that I need to take time each day to simply sit and focus. I love the tones of both Oprah’s and Deepak’s voices and the daily centering thought is certainly something each of us can use. For those of you who also journal there is a journal to write down your feelings regarding that day’s meditation. Give it a try for at least one day.
Go and have a great Friday and make sure to spend some time doing something you love.
