This week kind of flew by for me, I think because catching up after being out on vacation made things busier than usual! I got my first pumpkin-spiced anything (if you haven’t tried the pumpkin coffee from s-bux you neeeeeeed to! see above ^) and purchased a few fall-themed items… 😉 Who else is ready for autumn to get here, already?!

Man have I been all over the place this week.

I seriously need this mug ^

I’m in the middle of move, while partially staying with my cousin in West Hollywood, working on a ton of blog content for you guys, getting ready to celebrate my birthday, and go on vacation. And let me tell you, that vacation could not come at a better time! I seriously think reading blogs is one of my favorite ways to de-stress, though. It kind of always has been 🙂 Here’s what I’ve been reading this week…

Good Digestion Smoothie – I seriously need to start adding herbs like mint and basil to my smoothies. Do y’all ever do that?!

Hi Beautiful People!

Dancing for Donuts | Friday Finds.

I’m so sorry I haven’t posted a recipe in awhile, I have been traveling on the weekends and short on time, so the meals I’m prepping for the week have been pretty bland! Think basic quinoa with a bunch of raw veggies topped with 2 huge spoonfuls of hummus (yep, that’s been my lunch every. single. day). I promise I’ll be back next week with a new recipe (the carrot cookies most likely, since everyone has been requesting those!), but in the meantime I’m back with my usual Friday Finds from Chicago! I’m here for my very first music festival and am slightly nervous but also very, very excited. Let me know if you’ll be there, too!

What Our Nutritionist Eats in a Week – Totally stealing some of these ideas like the chocolate almond butter overnight oats and jicama sticks for a snack!

Italian Sausage and Veggie Bowls – I usually meal-prep my standard quinoa and veggies, but it gets old! Definitely hoping to try these next week.

Vegan Blueberry Shake – I’m clearly not vegan but hot damn this sounds good!!!

10 Grocery Store Shortcuts that are Cheaper than Doing it Yourself – An incredibly important list to have on hand! Thank goodness for Trader Joe’s, #amiright?

Extreme Money-Saving Tips of Extremely Frugal People (that You Can Use!) – Guys I totally wash my ziploc bags so I can re-use them…it’s great.

Double Chocolate Zucchini Cookies with Sea Salt – Pretty sure I share a recipe from this blog every single week because she is a cooking and baking GENIUS.

Enjoy your weekend 🙂

Wait, it’s Friday already?!

This week absolutely flew by for me, and I ain’t mad about it. I had two super fun fitness events this week after crazy busy days at work, so that might have something to do with it! It’s safe to say I’m happy it’s the weekend, though 🙂

We’re back to our regularly schedule Friday Finds programming 🙂 What have you been reading this week?!
