Fab Friday Faves 8.28.15

Happy Friday my friends!  I hope it finds you all happy and healthy and excited for the weekend!  Josh and I had a great trip into Brooklyn on Saturday, it was Josh's first time walking across the bridge, so it was a must do before we leave.  The rest of my week was pretty quiet with just a couple short trips into Manhattan just to wander.  I hope you all have amazing weekends, but don't wear yourselves out, save it for the long weekend!  

1. On Wednesday I went into Manhattan to Battery Park to the new Seaglass Carousel that just opened last week.  It is breathtaking in the day time but I really want to see it at night too!

2. Last Friday, I went for a wander in SoHo to pick up some Nespresso pods and happened to stop in at my favorite store, Birchbox.  I hadn't planned on getting anything but when I saw they had S'Well Bottles and also that I had 356 birch box points, I decided to use my points to get a bottle because i have wanted one for ages.  It ended up being pretty much free so I was happy.  These bottles aren't just water bottles but keep things hot for 12 hours and cold for 24!

3. I got my "Jinx" album back from Mixbook.  I spent one whole day making the book a few days after we lost him and it came very quickly in the mail which I was happy about.  I went a little overboard maybe (it has 86 pages and 266 pictures) but it is worth it and now I have all my favorite pictures of him in one spot instead of all over different computers and photo albums.

4. Josh and I went to try a Sushi place in Jersey City that we had never been to before, which is sad because it was amazing!  It's called Honshu Sushi over by Exchange Place and not only was the Sushi top notch, the presentation was fantastic and the staff was so friendly (which is super rare here!).

While I have used "Paula's Choice" skin care for almost the last year and absolutely love it, I was looking on the Birchbox website and saw "Michael Todd True Organics."  It has absolutely rave reviews so I thought I would give it a try and it really lives up to the hype.  It smells, amazing, is super gentle but effective.  They have quite a large line and it's mid range price which is great.  I had a 21% coupon from Birchbox (have I mentioned I love Birchbox?) so I used that and was able to get both these bottles for just under $30.
