Friday Favorites – 4.17

Did anyone else’s week fly by? Mine did. Happy Friday!

Who is excited for the weekend? I am for a few reasons – the biggest being going to a wedding dress fitting! My dress came in early and I was able to schedule a fitting tomorrow night. On the fitness front, I will be running a 5k on Saturday and getting R.I.P.P.E.D. Certified on Sunday!

Friday Favorites - Spring

the 4-hour workweek

I just started this book on Wednesday and I am flying my way thought it. Through his pages, Tim is teaching me how to escape the rate race and experience the world while living a full life. Hopefully, one day, I have the balls to go through with everything he says to do.

I got these babies as part of the TIU Bikini Series bundle that I bought. The are so thick and soft and like hugs for my feet. I love them. I tried to find them on the Tone It Up shop but they weren’t their. Sorry – I hate to rave about things that aren’t widely available but this is real life and sometimes some people get to have things and other people don’t.

  • Impromptu Date Nights

Impromptu Date Nights

Sometimes Tuesday call for Mexican. I would love to say SL and I partook in Taco Tuesday but it was more like Chips/Margs/Burritos/Chimichangas Tuesday. Whatever, I’ll take it. I got home from work and had no interest in cooking the chicken dish that was on the menu and SL mentioned Mexican and I jumped on him all over it! We actually had a little date night last night too (wing night!).

Yes, we live together, but we don’t always have the time to site and talk and just enjoy each other’s company. Impromptu dates nights are a necessity in our world.

I didn’t have all that many favorites this week but the ones that made the list, made my week so they each count as two.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!


Friday Favorites – 10.3

Guess what day it is?! Guess what day it is?! Nope, not Wednesday, its FRIDAY!!! This has been a bit of a stressful but wonderful week. Fun facts – we booked our wedding DJ and yesterday was our negative one year anniversary! Not so fun facts – work was really busy and we had so shizz go down last night but nothing too serious.

With that said, time for my Friday Favorites!

Friday Favorites

  •  October!

Hello October

Hello indeed. I love October, its my favorite month for a bunch of reasons. I love the tree leaves changing colors. I love eating all of the apples. Its my birthday month so that automatically makes it awesome. Its also my dad’s birthday month, my parents anniversary month and soon to be SL and my anniversary month. And then there is Halloween which is just fun.

  • Yes to Grapefruit CC Cream

yes to grapefruit cc cream

I have been trying to step up my girl game lately. I wear next to no makeup – eyeliner, mascara, lip balm and I’m out the door. I am not quite ready for the whole foundation, blush thing but I figured a CC cream would be a step in the right direction. I love this stuff. It is light and gives nice coverage. I also love it because its 95% natural, petroleum, SLS and paraben free and cruelty-free. Win. Win. Win.

  • Tone It Up MaliBooty Workout

TIU MaliBooty Workout

Thank you Katrina (and Karena) of Tone It Up. This workout is not only quick but effective and had my buns blazin’ this week. I love all of the TIU workouts, K&Ks blog posts and all of their cute Tone It Up gear. Keep killing it ladies. Check out the MaliBooty video here.

  • Shake It Off – Taylor Swift

Shake It Off

Did I live under a rock for the past few weeks? Short answer – yes. I just heard this song on Pandora earlier this week and immediately downloaded in to my iTunes. It.Is.My.Jam!! I’m not a country fan at all but as Taylor’s music has taken on a pop feel I have grown to love her and her music. If I ever get the chance to meet her I know we’d be BFFs from then on (hopefully).

I am hoping work flyies by today because SL and I have a movie date tonight. Our little way of celebrating our negative one year anniversary. The weekend will be busy busy and hopefully won’t go by too fast. I am doing some thing that is long overdue on Sunday…tune in on Monday for details!
