Friday, we meet again😏

Dancing for Donuts | Friday Finds | Oat Milk Latte

Thank goodness this week is a short one – with all the post-holiday catching up to do at work and in life, I’m ready for another break! We also haven’t done a Friday Finds in awhile, so I think it’s about time.

There’s been a looooot of advice floating around this internet this week in terms of health, fitness, resolutions, and really just motivation in general. It’s been great for sure, since who doesn’t need more of that, but I’m ready to take all of these tips and put them into action! I think we sometimes spend too much time planning or making lists (I am the MOST guilty of this!) instead of making it happen. The whole point of to-do lists is to check them off, right?

Okay, tangent over…not sure where that came from but I suppose my point is to tell you to just do it. Whatever it is. Take the plunge and DO IT. Like Nike…

How to Spend Less, Save More, and Clean Up Your Financial Act – I know it wasn’t one of my focus words but this year is definitely going to be the year of the hustle for me! I’ve got big things to save up for😉

7 Steps for Planning the Perfect Week – I actually love this breakdown on how to optimize your week for balance. It’s hard to fit work and having a life and being healthy and happy into just 7 days, but this outline is a good start!

Why Cooking is Part of My Self-Care Sunday Routine – Full disclosure: I actually wrote this one! I don’t think I’ve told you guys yet, but I’ve started co-blogging for ToBox this year, which is pretty rad☺️ You can find more of my writing each week on their site!

New Year Glow Smoothie Bowl – If someone could just bring me one of these rn that would be great.

8 Best Podcasts to Motivate Your Work Week – I already listen to a couple of these, but the rest I neeeeed to download! I don’t know about you, but I have a podcast queue longer than most people’s Netflix queues😅

Loaded Kale Salad – ‘Cause I’m hoppin’ back on that salad-a-day train this month (as best as I can, of course) and this one is definitely getting added to the mix!

14 Healthy Dinner Recipes to Help You Reset – These all sound delicious. Coming back from the holidays and having to plan meals/cook again hasn’t been the easiest thing in the world, so some inspiration is always welcome!

Alright my loves, have a fab weekend!! And also – if you wouldn’t mind sharing with me some of your favorite blogs as of late, I would looooove to check them out. I feel like I’m always seeing and sharing the same things!

Thanks😊

Happy Friday, Friends! Did this week fly by, or is it just me?

Dancing for Donuts | Friday Finds

I guess when you spend all day working and all night unpacking (+ watching Stranger Things, let’s be real), the days will do that…haha. But the sea of boxes is mostly gone, guys!! I cannot wait to show you photos.

I’ll be spending this weekend blogging + working + organizing my life, plus some fun things for sure, but I’ll catch up with you guys again Monday. In the meantime, here’s some light reading (as per usj) and some yummy recipes from around the web!

Hi friends! How’s everyone doing today?

Dancing for Donuts | Friday Finds.

I fled LA for the weekend and am currently in the Palm Springs area for some R&R. We found a good deal and the next few weeks are going to be a bit hectic, so we figured why not! You only live once, right?! 🙂

Here’s what I’ve been reading this week:

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!

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 🙂

Okay, does it feel like it took slightly longer for us to get to Friday this week, or is it just me?

Dancing for Donuts | Friday Finds.

I’ve had a fairly busy week between work and fitness classes afterwards (I’ve been trying so many new ones, I need to do a recap for you guys soon!), but for some reason I’ve had trouble staying focused since Monday and no amount of caffeine will help. Good thing it’s finally the weekend and the forecast here looks awesome.
