Friday Favorites!

Welcome back to another Friday Favorites! As always, I am linking up with the lovely Amanda, Karli, and Christina

1) Favorite Moment Of The Week

Nick surprised me earlier this week by taking me to see the Budweiser Clydesdales! This was such an exciting moment for me. This moment was literally so much fun - even though I wasn't allowed to touch them and of course I tried since that's what us horse people do! Regardless, it was still a wonderful moment and I'm so happy I got to see them!

2) Favorite New Find

This past weekend I met up with my mom in Raleigh and found these nail tattoos! They are so awesome. I have 'attempted' designs and it's difficult, but now I have the solution! I can have cute designs and you literally tattoo them onto your nail! You can find the nail tattoos here!

3) Favorite New Snack *Update*

If you didn't see my post on Wednesday about how I am loving roasted cauliflower check it out here!
I do have an update to the post for those of you who may have read it...apparently olive oil will smoke at high temperatures. I have had no problem with my oven but just incase you are worried you can substitute olive oil with vegetable oil and add a little garlic for flavor!

When the humidity finally kicks in.

When I eat all the bread at a restaurant.

Have a great weekend!


A Healthy Snack: Roasted Cauliflower

I have a problem: a snacking problem. 
I am always on the lookout for healthy snacks and recently I stumbled across one that is so good and is so easy! I don't know why it took me so long to try this because I can eat as much as I want and not feel guilty.

Welcome my new favorite snack addiction: roasted cauliflower!

And the kicker?? It is so easy!

All you need is:
A head of cauliflower
1/2 of a white onion
Salt (I used sea salt)
Olive Oil
Parmesan Cheese

That's it!

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and while your oven is warming up, chop up the cauliflower florets and the onion. Place in mixing bowl and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover everything with olive oil and mix together. Place everything on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes. Take cauliflower out of oven, sprinkle with parmesan cheese, and bake for 5 more minutes.


I hope some of you will enjoy this recipe and if you have any easy and healthy snacks then please share them with me in the comments!

**Update: Apparently olive oil can smoke while being baked at high temperatures. I have not had this happen but if you are concerned you can substitute with vegetable oil and add some garlic for flavor!


Friday Favorites

Today's Friday favorites are a bit random because I have some stuff to share and I need some advice so if you can relate please, please, comment below and let me know your thoughts!

Linking up with Karli and Amanda!

1) Favorite Find

Maybe not everyone experiences this feeling but I LOATHE shopping for white pants. After trying on a million about 10 pairs of white jeans I am happy to say that I found a pair that I love. The AG Farrah Skinny jeans are fantastic and oh so comfortable.

2) A Not So Favorite Problem

I am struggling with my workout shoes! I received a pair of Brook's Pure Cadence 4 running shoes for Christmas and I love them. The color, the support...but they are tight across my metatarsals. I don't have wide feet and I kept thinking they would give a bit once I broke them in, but they haven't and they hurt. I really want to stick to Brooks and am thinking the Brook's women's Glycerin 13 will be better for me. I use to use Asics Tri-Noosa and they were rather comfortable so I don't know what to do. Any suggestions??

3) Favorite (Currently Watching) Shows

I had stopped watching Netflix for a while (*GASP*  I know!) but decided that I was bored with TV and went back to my beloved Netflix and low and behold there are new seasons of How To Get Away With Murder and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt! Commence Netflix and Chill - and by chill I mean lay on the couch with Boone and Ash while Nick is working.

Boone says Hello

4) Favorite Song

Iggy Azalea - Team

So catchy.

5) Funnies

When Netflix asks if 'I'm still there?' like it is judging me for my binge watching.

When Nick says he is going to organize the garage/tinker with his tools.

When you spend forever in the completely full waiting room to be drug tested for nursing school and the guy who squeezed in next to you casually tries to tell you that you must be freezing in that workout tank-top.

Anytime I go out and stay out past midnight.

When the dogs follow me into the bathroom.

Have a great weekend!


First Impression: NYX Xtreme Lip Creme

Hello and welcome back to another first impression post.
Today I am talking about the NYX Xtreme Lip Creme in Nude Peach Fuzz.

So what do I think?
Im still on the fence about this product and will definitely wear it a few more times before making an ultimate decision.

I absolutely love the color! It is beautiful for the spring and the summer. What I am not so sure about is the texture. The texture is thicker than I expected so I have to work on my application technique. 
It doesn't last if you eat anything but it does stick on my lips while drinking.

NYX Xtreme Lip Creme retails for $5.99 at Ulta and I do think for the price point it is a reasonable buy. Have you tried the NYX Xtreme Lip Creme? If so, do you like it and how do you apply it? 

I hope you all are having a good week!


Friday Favorites!

Woo, this week has been a busy one! I haven't had much time to sit and that is why I am slacking in the blog department. 
I love posting my Friday Favorites so I knew I couldn't skip it!
As always, I am linking up with the lovely Amanda.

1) Favorite Moment Of The Week

I literally had a dream come true this week. I have always wanted beautiful pictures of my horses and it has finally happened. I am still waiting for all the photos but she gave me a sneak peak while I wait!



I seriously can't even contain my excitement! There are shots of me with the horses as well and I will bombard you with horse pictures for a have been warned.

3) Favorite Workout

I have become a booty barre addict. I started taking the class on Saturdays and love how hard they make me work! Sadly I will miss them the next two weekends but I'll get back to them! Here is a workout that I will be doing at home this weekend since I can't make it to the gym.

4) Favorite New Find

The other night I did a Wine and Design painting - but it wasn't any ordinary Wine and Design painting! It was a Wine and Design on Wheels so not only did I get to paint in a private room in a restaurant, but you also had a drink included in your purchase price! It was so much fun and I plan on doing another one. We painted an abstract pineapple and I tried the specially created drink for the event, the tipsy pineapple. It was so good. It was a combination of vodka, peach schnapps, pineapple juice, and champagne - yummy!
