It’s not only Friday (TGIF) but it’s the start of a 3 day weekend!! Yes, Labor Day weekend is here marking the official end of summer. Here in So. Cal this weekend also is probably the hottest weekend we’ve had all summer! I think it’s going to be a weekend of pool, beach, a good book, movie watching and A/C!
I am starting a new series here called My Friday Favorites. I will highlight 5 of my favorite fashion, food, fitness and/or lifestyle finds for the week. So let’s get this party started!
Nike Flyknit Free Running Shoes
It’s no secret that I love Nike running shoes and when my favorite ones are on sale well that makes it even better!! The Nike flyknit running shoes fit like a glove and are super light weight! They are my go to for exercising but I also love the fashion side of them and find I wear them while I am running errands, traveling, walking or just hanging out in leggings or sweats. I go for bright colored so this neon orange and pink had my name on it but there are so many colors options including black which I think every girl should have a cool pair of black sneakers in her closet.

M-61 POWER GLOW PEEL
Sure we would all like to have a facial every week but since that’s not in much of our budgets is the next best thing. My face cleansing routine has to be easy or I won’t do it. The M-61 Power Glow Peel pads are super easy and my skin feels like it I just had a mini facial! I ordered mine through Amazon – – – > http://amzn.to/2vRpfZ8
I use them just a few times a week at night after I’ve washed my face and my skin feels radiant and my fine lines seem reduced which is a victory in my book!
So this has been my lunch time obsession this week . . . lentil bowls. Lentils are high in fiber, protein, and iron plus they keep you full longer and I think they are a great change up in what we eat. Trader Joe’s has a steamed cooked lentils which make it super easy to incorporate lentils into your diet but if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you . . . Amazon sells steamed lentils by Melissa’s – – – > http://amzn.to/2evHeBS
For the bowls I use the lentils cold but you could warm them up in the microwave. The lentils are my base and I use the veggies I have on hand . . . tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, avocado. And then I add a protein like shredded chicken, hardboiled egg, feta cheese or cottage cheese. You can drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar, your favorite dressing or salsa. Happy, healthy eating!!
Fintie MacBook Case
This case just makes me happy! I had a clear simple protective laptop cover that cracked months ago and I didn’t replace it which isn’t the smartest thing since I carry my laptop everywhere.
I was ordering my boys covers for their laptop when I saw this one! I could have gone back to the simple clear cover I had but this one brightens my day, it makes me smile and in a house with 3 MacBooks no one will mistake mine for theirs!
There are many, many fun colorful option covers!
halo top ice cream
It’s still summer and it’s the weekend so ice cream is on my list this friday. Have you tried this yet? This is the answer to your ice cream desire without the guilt! It’s a low-calorie, high-protein, and low-sugar ice cream option. And seriously it’s good!!
We have taste-tested many flavors this summer . . . somebody has to do it! My two favorites are peanut butter cup and mint chip. My kids liked birthday cake and my husband, sea salt caramel. There are some new flavors that I am looking to try that sound amazing . . . pancakes & waffles and candy bar and rainbow swirl for the kid in my family that loves rainbow sherbet.
I have found Halo Tops at Ralph’s, Whole Foods and if you are an Amazon fresh member you can order them from there.
It’s hard to believe that today is Sept 1st!! Enjoy your holiday weekend with your family and friends!
