Weekend Notes Pt. Six

Happy Friday ladies! We made it to the weekend. I feel like that deserves a glass of wine tonight.

This past Sunday, ABC had a 2 hour special on the last 100 days of Princess Diana. I learned so much about Diana and the Royal Family that I never knew before. The day she died, she was actually suppose to head back to London, but went to Paris instead.

It’s so devastating. She just wanted to go home to her boys.

Violette, from VioletteDaily, shared a very personal experience. I cannot even begin to fathom what she went through, but I feel like it made her into the stronger person she is today.

Mother’s Day is on Sunday. It’s not too late to buy your mom, grandma, mother-in-law, aunt, etc. a present!

I will be going to Illinois this weekend for a funeral that I have on Monday. I have some exciting things planned for stops on the way there. Hopefully, I’ll share it with you next week.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

    • Thanks Caitlin! It’s my dad’s cousin’s husband. They came to both my grandma and grandpa’s funerals so we figured we needed to go. Yes, definitely check On Demand. It was so interesting and I loved learning facts about her that I didn’t know before.

  • I’ll have to check out Violette’s post, thanks for sharing <3

  • Hi Jennifer,
    I am sorry to hear that you are going to a funeral. Are you going to celebrate Mother’s Day with your mom? I can’t wait to hear all news that you will share with us next week.

    P.S. I follow Violette as well and read her story. It is horrible what happened to her and I admire her strength and how she bounced back. She is amazing.

    And btw, I checked and I finished Bobbi Brown so I have only BECCA primers now. :-)) thank you for all your advice, Jennifer. I really appreciate it.

    Have a lovely weekend.


    • Thanks Miri! The funeral is for my dad’s cousin’s husband.
      I will be celebrating Mother’s Day with my mom. My sister and I got her Jo Malone Wild Bluebell perfume. It’s currently hiding in our suitcase πŸ™‚
      You are so welcome about the primers! I’m going to have to try the Backlight one. It sounds really good.
      I hope you have a wonderful weekend as well and I hope you have a lovely Mother’s Day!
