Friday Finds.

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!

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.
