Fun Findings Friday #147

TGIF x 10000000! This week was one of those weeks, where everything just seemed to go wrong and it lasted forever. I think part of it has to do with still being thrown off from my terrible flight experience at the end of last week, but regardless, I just can’t wait for it to be over! This weekend I’m hoping for a little R&R, but the big looming thing is my very last final of my first semester of grad school, which happens tomorrow. Yikes! Please send all good vibes my way!

Fitbit’s FitForGood Challenge

I’m a big fan of fitness trackers, and have been loving my FitBit HR Charge since I made the switch over the summer. While I don’t hit my goal every day, I strive to make my goal 5/7 days each week, and am always extra motivated when a good challenge is in place. Earlier this week, FitBit announced their FitForGood Challenge, allowing you to sign up to step for one of three charities (American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association or National Multiple Sclerosis Society). Each charity will receive a donation, but the amount depends on which place they end up in when the challenge ends next week. I’m stepping for the American Diabetes Association! Sign up or find out more here!

Sephora VIB Sale

Today kicks off Sephora’s VIB sale, where VIB loyalty members receive 20% off their entire purchase. SO DANGEROUS, guys! I wish they’d push this to Black Friday because I’m trying to be good about spending this month (at least until BF), but there are a few things I’m eyeing… Will you be taking advantage of this sale?

Alanis Morisette “Ironic” Lyric Update

I’ve always loved Alanis Morisette’s songs, especially the tunes from the 90s. Pair her with one of my favorite late night TV hosts, James Corden, and you get an epic, modern update to the lyrics of “Ironic.” Watch below!

Do you have any big plans for this weekend?

    Haha I LOVE Alanis and the updated version of “Ironic” with James Corden is hilarious. I think I’m going to be watching that a few more times over the weekend. Good luck on your final!

      Yes! I think they should update the lyrics with other 90s songs. Too funny!

    I wish that Sephora had their VIB sale closer to Black Friday too! I almost feel like they would have people spend even more money than they already do. I always wait until the sale so that I can stock up on everything that I “need” from Sephora.

      Oh for sure! I guess they’re just wanting to drive extra traffic in before the Black Friday and Christmas rush!

    Dustin is taking me to Sephora tonight so that I can go spend way too much money on VIB stuff, haha! Well, I’m hoping to keep it under 100 dollars, but I really want to get a Glam Glow facemask and the new ABH eyeshadow palette!

      Lucky you! I hope you picked up some good things :) It’s definitely easier to stay on budget when things are on sale, but dangerous because you’d wanna pick up more items!

    Ah! How do you stay motivated with your Fitbit? I feel like I was into it for nine months or so, but then I really hit Fitbit fatigue HARD.

      I have an app called Pact that pays you for reaching your step and/or eating goals, so it keeps me accountable. If I don’t meet my goals I have to pay up! Plus, I don’t get to the gym as much as I used to, so I need to make sure I’m staying somewhat active :)

      Oh he is! The British accent makes it even better too lol. I’d love to attend some of these late night TV shows live!

    • November 16, 2015 / 5:10 PM

      Definitely! I don’t think we are but I’ll send a request :)

      Yay! It’s a great way to give back without really doing anything (other than exercising)!
