Friday faves 11 + last week’s workouts

August 9, 2016

Hi!! I’m a bit behind with sharing my Friday faves so how about I do that on a random Tuesday? Here are some of the things I’m loving right now.


Friday Faves 11

The Olympics. I love watching the summer games. I’m totally in awe of all the talented athletes who dedicate their lives to sport. My favorite events to watch are the men’s and women’s gymnastics. Gymnasts are such incredible athletes. It’s insane what they can do.


This Kate Spade planner – after going back and forth between electronic and paper, I’ve decided I’m a paper person at heart. Don’t get me wrong – I love having reminders on my iPhone and we use Outlook at work, but I really like having a visual calendar in front of me. It’s easy for dates and events to sneak up on me if I don’t have it laid out before me. So I’m embracing my old-fashioned self and am publicly declaring my love for the paper planner. Who’s with me?!

Keeping with the old fashioned theme for a sec, I should also admit that I am one of the few adults who still uses pencils. I just love writing with pencil and having the option to erase. And these pencils are too fun not to have in my life. Oh, how I love Etsy. 


Yoga on the road – yes, please! In fact, I think I’ll start doing these at my desk.

Am I the only one who is ready for summer to be over? This article made me laugh. 🙂

thredUP – I’m a bit surprised it has taken me so long to try this online consignment shop, but I have recently started selling and buying clothing with thredUP and I’ve enjoyed my experience so far. I’ll post a review soon.

These lanterns from Pottery Barn. Reason #101 why Pinterest can be dangerous. I ordered the large one for our living room and I’m excited for it to arrive!

This arm and ab burner workout.

Pineapple. Because pineapple. This was an impulse buy, but it proved to be a good idea. The pineapple was super juicy and sweet. I cut up the entire thing and froze half of it for smoothies. It was my first time cutting up a whole pineapple and it was actually quite easy with very little mess.

Starbucks cold brew pitcher packs. I’ll definitely be taking one of these to the beach in a couple weeks!
