Hi, friends! Happy FRIDAY! Holy cow, this week flew by, right? Gotta love holiday weekends!
Since it’s Friday and all, it’s time for another edition of What I’m Loving Lately. This week’s post was actually really easy to put together because I’m seriously loving what’s mentioned! I mean, hey, some weeks are better than others! Ha! Ok, here we go!
Mind Pump: Raw Fitness Truth podcast – The ladies from Girls Gone WOD recently had the guys from Mind Pump on their podcast, and I immediately fell is love. They talk about all things fitness/health, and I love their straight-forward style. They also record multiples times per week, so they always have new content to listen to – and, of course, I’m totally binge-listening to past episodes!
OK to Wake! Clock – This clock is the BEST THING EVER!! We recently transitioned Quinn to a toddler bed, which started out great, but then he was climbing into our bed at like 4:30 AM. After a few realllllly early mornings, we decided it was time to try something new. We heard this OK to Wake! Clock was awesome and, sure enough, it did the trick. Qman thinks it’s the coolest thing ever and gets so excited when it turns green in the morning. He’ll come into our room and tell us ALL ABOUT IT. Haha! In addition to being a fun new toy, the clock keeps him in bed until a more “reasonable” hour of the morning!
Effortless style – I shared the photo below on CNC last week and received a few questions about my hair and jeans, so I just wanted to provide the details because, honestly, my “style” is quite effortless!
I recently started using a serum + Sea Salt Spray in my hair and just letting it air dry to get light, beach-y waves. I use a dime-size amount of serum on just the ends of my layers. Then, I spray the Sea Salt Spray all over and then “scrunch” it up with my hands (maybe a half dozen times) before letting it dry naturally. It’s so easy and takes like 2 minutes!
My boyfriend jeans are from Kut from the Kloth and the rips came with them! They’re super comfy and fitted in all the right places. I wear them a ton and swear they just keep getting better and better with each wash!
Lululemon Breeze By Muscle Tank – I’m obsessed with all muscle tanks, but especially this one! I need it in my life for sure!
Kashi Salted Chocolate Chunk Chewy Nut Butter Bars – Omggggg, these bars on life-changing. Seriously, they’re a game changer for when it comes to healthy treats. They’re just 150 calories and only have 8g of sugar per bar, but they’re FULL of flavor, which means you get to enjoy dessert, but it in a perfectly controlled portion!
Blueberry Chex – I’m not typically a fan of fruit-flavored cereals (or ice cream), but I love Chex cereals, so I gave their new blueberry flavor a fair chance. (My friends at General Mills sent it to me to sample.) I have to admit that it’s pretty darn amazing! The flavor reminds me of the edge of a blueberry muffin top, and I’m definitely a fan! Holy yum!
This recipe for Cheesy Chicken & Broccoli With Spinach – An oldie, but goodie from the CNC archives. A reader recently sent me an email and mentioned how much she likes this recipe. I actually forgot about it until she reminded me of it. We actually made it for dinner the other night, and it’s definitely a winner!
Another recipe on repeat this week: Cucumber + Radish Salad. I shared the recipe yesterday, but just had to give it another shout out. It’s so easy, light, and delicious – perfect for summer!
Question of the Day
What recipe is on repeat in your house lately? Do I need to make it? Please share!
P.S. I’m keeping my special Beautycounter promo open through the weekend! Woohoo! It’s an awesome deal – and if you’re in the market for sunscreen without all of those crazy ingredients, be sure to hop on this deal!
