Hi friends, and a Happy Friday to ya!
This weekend is going to involve a lot of studying, running, and relaxing. I have plans to get together with some girlfriends tonight, but other than that I am really looking forward to keeping things low-key.
Am I nearing 30 or what? (It’s fine. We’re rolling with it.)
Getting right to business, let’s move on to this week’s edition of Friday Favorites! As always, I invite you to share some things you have been loving at the bottom by utilizing the comments section and link up tool!
Friday Favorites #58: Week of 10/10
• pumpkin candy corn
I haven’t always been a fan of pumpkin candy corn, but I officially changed my opinion after putting this bowl of candy corn goodness together for Scott.
Below the pumpkins is a mixture of chocolate and caramel candy corn.
Are you a fan of just the original or do you like the flavors too?
• Lorna Jane Active Living bracelet
Unfortunately, I got word of the movement a few days after the big day! I have, however, still enjoyed wearing the bracelet and if you search their Instagram account, you see it pop up everywhere like here, here and here with the hashtag #nowmoveit.
This limited edition MOVE NOURISH BELIEVE (MNB) bracelet is not just a pretty pink accessory, it also inspires a happier, healthier, and more active world!
If you are anywhere close to a Lorna Jane store, you can buy them for $4.95 or receive one for free with any in-store purchase. (As of right now) I don’t believe you can purchase them online.
• Tips From a Vegan Mom on Eating Protein via Char Eats Greens
Great tips for my vegetarians/vegans/picky protein eaters out there!
• Johnson’s Baby Moisture Wash
Over last month or so, I have been having some kind of reaction to something. I don’t know if it’s seasonal allergies, food related, or what, but something has been causing my skin to become irritated and made me an itch monster. I constantly scratch and have woken up with patches of rashes!
A friend of mine recommended the idea of trying old fashioned baby soap in the shower to replace my current wash.
Over the last week, I have been using this Johnson’s Baby Moisture Wash and I have noticed a huge improvement and calmer skin! Who knew?
• Carlton doing “The Carlton” on Dancing With the Stars
If you haven’t seen this yet, you’re welcome. Make sure to watch the end when Alfonso gives you the two tips to help your own “Carlton” swag!
I have already played it about twenty times.
• Anatomy coloring book (and coloring in general)
Per your suggestions (thank you!!) I searched for a coloring book to help me study the human anatomy for my personal training certification.
I chose The Human Body Coloring Book and it has been a BIG help!
Referencing my personal training book, I flagged the pages I needed to concentrate on and have been coloring my little heart out.
(oh hey, kitty paw!)
I have a great sense of what muscles do what, but remembering the scientific name for each one is where I have had the most trouble. Coloring them in one by one has made the memorization process a lot less overwhelming to learn.
I also forgot how much I love to color!
It’s almost therapeutic. I (of course) am ridiculous and had to buy the 64 pack for the built-in sharpener in the back. Remember when that made you the coolest kid in class? Oh, the good ‘ol days.
• 5 Tips To Prevent Breast Cancer via Sarah Fit
So important and a great reminder. <3
• the return of Pistons Basketball
Pre-season officially started this week! I really can’t believe it. I wasn’t able to attend the very first Detroit Pistons game, but I went last night!
How cool is this new (massive) jumbotron? It’s so bright!
I sat sidelines with a group of friends and enjoyed watching the game and entertainment teams perform.
We’ve walked away with two consecutive wins, so we can only hope the streak continues!
• favorite HWG posts
• Friday funnies
Two this week because I couldn’t decide which one is better.
Have a great weekend! xo
