You guys, today is a great day. Not only because it’s FRIDAY! I mean, yes, that’s great!! But, guess what national day it is? National PIZZA Day! And I did my final BRIK weigh-in this morning. So, you best believe this ol girl will be partaking in the national day! I’m thinking Masullo’s ♥
Ok, in other great news – my co-worker that I’ve been covering for is BACK! Thank you sweet baby Jesus. After 3 crazy ass weeks, my life as it once was, is officially BACK! I’ve been MIA, scatter-brained, tired and busy. Not a good combo, let me tell you!
So, let’s re-cap. I lost weight. F yes! It’s Friday! Double hell yeah! National Pizza Day!! And I’m not stressed the F out. Today is going to be a damn good day!
Believe it or not, I still have a few more things on my mind……
ONE – Breakfast // I have a new favorite breakfast. It’s just too good not to share. Spiralized sweet potato. Arugula. Egg. Topped with a little tap-your-uncle (tapatio) + 2 slices of avocado. Pure heaven!
When I do my weekly meal prep….hard boil eggs. Wash/chop/prep veggies. Make dressings/dips. Bay’s morning muffins. I spiralize a sweet potato. Throw it in a container and grab a handful each morning.
It’s such a great combo. The arugula gets a little crunchy and the sweet potato makes is so fulling and delish.
Ohhh, and a new kitchen gadget that I’ve been cooking my eggs in. The Misto. It’s an olive oil sprayer. You fill it with your fave olive oil. Give it a pump and coat your pan or veggies. Straight up game changer.
TWO – Bralette // If you’re an off the shoulder gal, but not the strapless bra kinda gal….this is SOOO for you. A pretty crochet strap popping out is totally acceptable. And I actually prefer it. This is the Free People Adella. She comes in 6 color options. Which was the hardest part of buying this bralette. Not only is beautiful, but super comfy too. I can’t wait to rock this under tank tops this summer!
THREE – CD’s // Are CD’s going extinct? I heard in the news that Target will no longer be selling CD’s. WTF? Am I the ONLY person that still buys CD’s? There’s just something about having the music in hand. And playing it in my car. On repeat. Over and over again. Weird? I thought this was totally normal till I heard they just don’t sale anymore. So crazy. This week I bought The Greatest Showman soundtrack for Bay. And I can’t help but think, Bay wont have a big ass CD collection when she’s my age.
FOUR – Zit Zapper // Bay + I have put this pimple potion to the ultimate test. Between my stressful 3 weeks and my pre-teen, you will likely see us walking around before bed with pink dots all over our faces….HA! Fucking MAGIC!!! Wish I would have know about this stuff long ago!!! Get some. Unless you’re one of those chicks that don’t ever get blemishes. Bitch 🙂
Here’s the scoop:
What it is: Just one drop of this world-famous Drying Lotion on a surface pimple or whitehead will heal and dry a zit virtually overnight.
Who it’s for: Suitable for all skin types.
What it does: Mario Badescu’s best-selling, concentrated formulation of calamine, salicylic acid and quick-acting acne-zapping ingredients should be part of everyone’s clear-skin arsenal.
How to use: At night after cleansing, toning and moisturizing, apply a dab of lotion directly on the whitehead using a cotton swab. Do not rub in. Let it dry and rinse off in the morning. Do not shake the bottle, and apply only the pink sediment on the skin.
