Friday Favorites

Favorite Song: Amanda introduced me to Tritonal last week. I love Blackout!!! I decided to search some of their other songs and really liked Anchor.

Favorite Recipe: I made this Mexican Chicken Soup for lunches this week and it is legit!!! Lots of flavor and it is Whole 30/Paleo approved! It’s a crock pot soup, super easy to throw together and forget about it.

Healthy chicken and vegetable soup recipe:

Favorite Workout: Do this work out while your shower water is getting warm or while you wait for your water to boil or oven to preheat.

6 minute workout when your looking to squeeze in a workout on a busy day. Looks easy enough to use on a clinical or work day.:

Favorite Lust: The weather is going to start warming up here and it is time to transition in to some spring pieces. I have my eyes on a few things…

Stripe dresses! This one is on sale at JCPenney!

This one would  be perfect for work.

This Lauren Conrad dress is so pretty and feminine! It is less than $50 right now, too!!!

–I mentioned on Wednesday that a glass of red wine a night is equivalent to 30 minutes of exercise. Here is an article on hoe to pick a good wine. I can tell you about 25 wonderful beers, but wine? I have one or two that I lean towards but would like to explore more! What is your favorite wine? If you tell me Cupcake I wont believe you! I tried an Angel Food Cake Cupcake wine that tasted like total shit and now I have no trust in that brand. If you swear by another of theirs and thought Angel Food was gross then I might believe you lol.

–Tank top season is just around the corner, tone your arms with these tips!

–There are some cosmetic items that I have had for years and I still use them and everything is fine, but here is a list of when make up “expires.” Do you follow this??

–Have you ever done a skin cleanse? This girl shares what she did and her results after two weeks. There are some great habits to take from this article regardless.

    That soup sounds and looks so good! It’s even better that not only is it healthy, but it’s also easy to make in the crock pot! Those types of recipes are always my favorite! All of those dresses that you picked out are so cute! I especially love the lace one! I hope you have a great weekend!

    i am so afraid of doing anything non-shower like (like working out) because of my fear of slipping and breaking something! #oldpeopleproblems

    UGH I finished Me Before You last night and FEELINGS CENTRAL. Yikes. Can’t wait to read After You. And every other Jojo Moyes book in existence. Ummm I’ve had some makeup for sooo so so many years, like super ashamed to admit it, and I still use it. I’m horrible.

    • Reply Mattie @ Northwest Native March 4, 2016 at 11:03 am

      OH and my favorite wine ever is Prosecco, and I like Cupcake’s, because it’s good and also the cheapest one I can find at the store. But I don’t really know much about their other wines.

    Can I just say that if that Facebook dislike button really came to fruition there would be so much delicious drama for me to witness every day. Fingers crossed for that one. Thank you for sharing that soup! It looks delicious and I am way into anything crockpot! Have a fabulous weekend! xo

    Loving all the Hart of Dixie gifs, miss that show! How pretty are those dresses, and that workout is perfect before getting ready in the morning. Great way to start the day! Happy Friday gurlie <3

    Super cute dresses! I need to wear more dresses, when my legs look less ghostly of course.

  • Reply Tricia Coniglio March 4, 2016 at 12:26 pm

    The soup looks amazing and I really like the bowl it is in. I am really liking blue a lot right now. The squats in the shower-I can do. The push-ups? I’m not feeling very confident about that!

    The black and white dress is my favorite – super cute!

  • Reply Christina March 4, 2016 at 12:30 pm

    Love the JC Penney stripe dress. I haven’t been there in maybe 10 years, but I guess I should go check them out. Have a wonderful weekend xx

    Oooo, I love me some soup always, especially Mexican soup. Yum! I love that black dress with the white stripes at the bottom.

    Those dresses are so pretty! I go crazy when the barista’s at Starbucks are too busy flirting to make my latte. hahaha, It happens to me all the time. Have a wonderful weekend.

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says March 4, 2016 at 1:20 pm

    I feel the same way about Walmart. I get Walmart rage. It’s terrible. I had to go there on Monday and they didn’t have what I needed so I was extra pissed that I had to make a trip to that pit AND I couldn’t get the one thing I needed.

    I’m checking out that soup. I need a new soup recipe.

  • Reply kristen March 4, 2016 at 2:04 pm

    oh that ‘help me eat my feelings’ gif was so sad in the show. did you ever finish hart of dixie, i don’t remember. i saved that bitch ecard to send to my bestie haha. that soup looks amazing, and i want all the clothes you linked to. yes please.

    I haven’t heard this song before, but I really like it! I also am loving all three of those dresses. So pretty!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis March 4, 2016 at 2:29 pm

    So true about the new Facebook buttons! Crockpot recipes are seriously the best and great for leftovers. Tat soup looks healthy and hearty! I love the LC dress for spring…it’d look great on you!

  • Reply alyssa March 4, 2016 at 2:30 pm

    I LOVE Tritonal! Anchor has been steadily on my running playlist forever. So good. Have an awesome weekend!

    That LC dress looks short…says the old person. WAH. LOL really though. Love the work dress.

    Happy weekend!

  • Reply Jessi March 4, 2016 at 3:10 pm

    Happy Weekend! 🙂 I love the tip about a little sweaty time before the shower every single time I read it, so why am I not doing it already? I’m going to make it happen.

  • Reply Carly March 4, 2016 at 4:27 pm

    That workout is great! I need to find all of those Pinterest workouts for our trip since I won’t have any weights or gym equipment.

    Have a great weekend! 🙂

    Those dresses are so cute! Love all the Hart of Dixie GIFs!

    The make up expiration tips….I ignore them. But then when I think back to when I bought some of my eye shadows…umm 5 years maybe?! I freak out a little, but I’m haven’t concocted any weird skin rashes or diseases yet. Make up is expensive!!

  • Reply Cara March 7, 2016 at 10:19 am

    All of those dresses are beautiful! I really like the pink one!
