Friday Favorites

Favorite Song: U by Gareth Emery. This song is awesome!!!! Give it a listen. Around 1:39 is when my favorite part of the song hits. Right after that amazingness the beat hits and it becomes the perfect running song.

Favorite Color: Is houndstooth a color? It should be!

Favorite Surprise: Winning Julia’s Starbuck’s gift card giveaway!!! Bring on the PSL!!!!!!!!!!

Favorite Skin Products:  My face has been the worst it has been in my entire life. Nothing seems to help me. After talking to Amanda, I started using the Bare Minerals Blemish Therapy last week and the Lush Ultrabland this week. I have to say….I am impressed. While I am no where near “clear” right now, nothing new has sprung up this week and some of the irritated red splotches on my cheeks have calmed the effff down. I am hoping with my continued combined use, I can start looking like myself again.

Favorite Recipe:I made the Thai Peanut Spaghetti Squash recipe that has been all over Pinterest lately. This was amazing!!! The recipe for the peanut sauce actually makes way more than you need and now I am dreaming up what I can do with all that left over. Mmmm. I may or may not have eaten a few spoonfuls of just the sauce before refrigerating it. No shame.


Favorite Workout: I had two amazing runs this week. I have realized that if I get out of my head and stop telling myself I have a limit, I get a lot further. Imagine that! This was from this morning, I hit a new for me PR and had to give myself a fist bump after sending my sweaty selfie to my ahole bro group. Shout out to my ladies who give me all the motivation and laughs!!!


I found this on Pinterest and plan to start it next week on the days I do my arm workout.

    I love how that song totally synced up perfectly to the last dancing gif 😉 Yeah!!!!!! I am so happy to hear you like that combo of the ultrabland and bare minerals. The ultrabland exactly it’s not an overnight clear but after like 2 weeks you will be like holy shit, there is the soft and not angry skin that I knew I had. Girl I want to fist pump you right back in that sweaty post workout pic. You are killing it! Thank goodness that football is back right???? I am so pumped!!!!

    I’m ignoring all your Alabama football references ;). Great job on the running!! We do that last ab move at my yoga class and it really works, a variation is to bring your knee in to your elbows as well and not just the center so it works your sides abs as well. Have fun this weekend!!

    You go girl!!! Rockin’ those sweaty selfie pics! 😀 And PSL might you say? I just so happen to be gulping one down as I’m typing this out. HA. I figured since I sweated out about 7lbs of my body weight last night alone, I can rehydrate some more this morning with one of these babies! 😀 I’m convinced they lace these with crack…

    Oh I laughed so hard at that “it’s in the bagging area” meme. OMG that happens to me ALL the time. Drives me crazy. Hope you have a great Labor Day weekend.

  • Reply Pamela @ A Little Glitter September 4, 2015 at 10:48 am

    That ragey picture of the girl in the self checkout should be me. I DESPISE those things. They always mess with me! Have a fun LDW! xo

  • Reply Amanda September 4, 2015 at 11:41 am

    I love Ultra Bland, too! I’ve actually been using coconut oil the past week to cleanse with and so far it’s working pretty well!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista September 4, 2015 at 12:35 pm

    That peanut spaghetti squash looks delish and YES to it being in the bagging area – so frustrating! You look awesome gurlie! I’ll have what you’re having 😉

    Happy Friday <3

    girl you should be SO EFFING PROUD of your running. I can 100% guarantee that I could not run 30 minutes right now #fatandlazy
    that peanut sauce stuff, totally gonna make it one day. maybe. i’ve never made spaghetti squash.
    ooh i want to try that lush stuff, Steph (not entirely perfect) mentioned this shampoo that is apparently amazing for volume, and it has like 700 reviews online so next time I go to the mall, I’m getting both!

    I am right there with you doing the Carlton for football! SO excited! (And a little scared because we have a new coach and really no QB to speak of so that should be fun…) Yay for the gift card, hope you enjoy many PSL’s with it! 🙂 Have an amazing weekend!

  • Reply Mattie September 4, 2015 at 8:11 pm

    Yay for awesome runs! Oh and that Thai spaghetti squash…genius. Sounds so delicious! The ecards at the end were hilarious.

  • Reply jackie September 5, 2015 at 1:27 pm

  • Reply Kerry September 5, 2015 at 9:46 pm

    Fist bump! Ha! So much farther when we stop doubting ourselves.

    Yay football season! I missed my husband’s favourite team’s opening game but I am excited to watch a game or two going forward!

  • Reply Laura September 8, 2015 at 9:10 pm

    I am going to need to try that Thai Spaghetti squash — that shit sounds awesome. ALSO, I need that Felicia shirt, I love it!! AND BOOOOOOOO to Bama………….WAR EAGLE!!!!!

  • Reply Teh Megan September 9, 2015 at 9:30 pm

    This whole post was on point.
    Also, how the hell she smiles when she’s working out like that blows my freakin’ mind. No one is that happy working out. She’s not yankin’ my chain.
    My best runs are the ones I give myself leeway on. I’ll say I’m going to do 8-10 miles and I’ll have to stop myself from going more than 11 since I finally hit a groove and don’t want to overdo it. Mind over body is for real a thing.
