Friday faves 21: supplements, sweets, and some really cute valentines

February 10, 2017

Hello Friday! It was a cold, gray day here in Chapel Hill and I’m settling in on the couch with some wine. The perfect end to a busy week! I hope you have some fun plans lined up this weekend. We don’t have much going on which I am more than fine with.


Let’s get into my latest loves, shall we? Here are some of the things I’m enjoying right now…


Friday faves 21

Honey lemon ginseng and matcha tea from Celestial Seasonings – I am not a hot tea person. If I’m drinking tea, it’s iced. Matt picked up some green tea at the store the other day and I’m totally into the honey lemon ginseng green tea. It’s actually quite soothing and I love the flavor. Haven’t tried the matcha one, but will do so next!

A Fit Mess

JP’s Pastry cookies – I have to laugh at this pic. Here’s a wrapper for you guys. Well, I would have taken this picture sooner had I not immediately stuffed the cookie in my face. It was delicious. JP’s Pastry is an online gluten-free pastry company located in the Raleigh-Durham area. I picked this up at a recent trip to Coco Bean Coffee and I (obviously) loved it!

Having a random weekday lunch with these two cuties. We LOVE Moe’s! #alltheguac #allthetacos

L-Glutamine, BCAA, Uber C powder – I have been taking all three of these supplements post workout and I love the combo. The Uber C powder is great for boosting the immune system during the cold and flu season.

How cute are these lunch bags from Wildkin? They come in a dozen different designs. Madison chose the mermaids and Ashlyn went with the robots. Love their individual styles!

On the topic of lunches – I picked up a few of these lunch blox containers by Rubbermaid to pack cold items in for the girls. They’re great because they have a divider in them and they were only $5 at Target.

These Paleo vanilla bean cupcakes look perfectly divine! I’ll be making them for a Valentine’s Day party at M & A’s school on Monday.

RUNNING! For the most part, our weather here has been mild. I’ve enjoyed a lot of great days outside. <3

I do think I need these ‘Live In’ leggings from Zella, thank you very much!

How darling are these Valentine’s Day cards? I was going to let the girls pick theirs out, but then…

I recently loaned my copy of The Whole30 cookbook to my girlfriend and it reminded me how much I love the recipes and cooking instructions in it. It’s seriously a great resource whether you are doing W30 or not.

Wings! These are a tad healthier because they are baked – not fried. And ohhhhhsooogood.

Study shows running four hours after learning improves long term memory. I wish I knew about this when I was studying for exams in college!


You’re turn…what are you loving these days?
