Happy, happy Friday! This week flew by and I am fully ready to take on the weekend which will be jam packed with errands, cleaning and projects. SL and I got some BIG news over the last week so fingers are crossed that all will go well and I can share the big news!
But until then, let’s talk about some Friday Favorites.
- b. good Local Apple & Bacon Kale & Quinoa Bowl
This bowl was amazing and the perfect healthy but fast lunch. b. good is a small chain which started in Boston and is committed to serving up “real” fast-food. When looking at the menu I had a tough time deciding between this bowl and one of the many burger options but I ultimately went with the bowl because I am a sucker for all things apple this fall. Along with the apple, bacon, kale and quinoa, my bowl had chicken, avocado, dried cranberries and sunflower seeds. It came with an un-pictured red wine vinegar and olive oil dressing but I didn’t use it because the bowl already had so much flavor. I will definitely be recreating this one at home.
I’ve written about my love for Reebok Skyscapes before but I need to showcase them again. These shoes are amazing. They are super lightweight, perfect for my walks to work and perfect for running errands on weekends. I love throwing on sneakers but hate wasting the miles on my running sneaks so having a dedicated walking pair makes my life! I went with the pink laces for now to give them a bit of flair 🙂
- Yes to Blueberries Cleansing Facial Wipes
I recently discovered the Yes to line of products and have been using the Yes to Grapefruit CC cream for about a month so when I saw these wipes at Target I knew I needed to try them. These wipes are formulated with apple and lemon peel to brighten skin and give them a refreshing scent.
That’s all for today. I really wanted to add November Project to the list but I though that blogging about it twice in one week may be a bit excessive. For real though, if you have one near you, check it out immediately.
It’s Friday! And its a long weekend!! Nothing could be better!
I have had one of the best weeks of my life, to say the least. Other than having a Master’s degree and becoming a wife-to-be, I have enjoyed a few more things this week. Here is what I am loving this particularly amazing week!
Cooking Light Magazine
I love when my CL comes in the mail. Each edition is full of simple meals, sides and desserts that I can whip up on any given night. Whenever I try something new I like to stick to what the recipe says before I go off and get creative but I hate having to by new ingredients that I am not sure about. I love that Cooking Light often recommend little changes for those recipes that have weird ingredients so I still feel like I am keeping with the recipe but don’t feel like I have to run up and buy a sunchoke.
Did you know that if I were a unicorn, I’d be a sparkly unicorn? Also, my spirit animal is an owl. Graceful, quiet and majestic. Yup, that’s me! Thanks to the many (MANY!) BuzzFeed quizzes I’ve taken lately I’ve also learned that if I were to run away to a paradise, it would be a coral reef utopia! I would love to run off to a coral reef utopia! I also recently learned that I am obsessed with pizza…this was no shock!
Rimmel London Salon Pro Nail Polish
I am obsessed with my new nail polish. Post ENGAGEMENT I ran to CVS to pick up a pretty, romantic color to paint my tips. I stumbled across the Rimmel London brand for $3 and bought it. I was drawn to the color (New Romantic) but wound up loving it because it doesn’t chip! I painted on 3 coats on Sunday night and they still love perfect! I can’t wait to try out some of the other 10 colors.
These are AWESOME! I love my new Reebok Skyscapes! I first read about these new kicks on Julie and Gina’s blogs and new I had to give them a try. I didn’t feel comfortable ordering them online so I have been scouring local stores and I finally came across a pair in my size! I must have a popular shoe size because it always seems to be sold out. The Skyscapes come in ten different colors but only 2 were available at the store where I bought mine. I opted for the Pink Fusion because why not. Go big or go home.
Now just a few more hours of work then a 3-day weekend! Have a great Memorial Day Weekend and happy unofficial start to SUMMER!
