Friday Faves & Weekend Excitement

16 Feb

Happy Friday!!! I’m super excited for this weekend as we have lots of exciting plans πŸ™‚ Tonight we are having our belated Valentine’s day dinner at Max Fish. We haven’t been there for dinner in forever. Gimme all the seafood!

Tomorrow we are having our annual “wine day” with our friends Robbie and Jenna. Once a year, around Valentine’s Day, we head out to Litchfield county to our favorite wineries with lots of yummy snacks packed and it is always a great time. Can’t wait!

Today I figured I would share a few of my recent favorite things (ahem, more like obsessions). Beware, they are random and all over the place but that’s just how I’m feeling today πŸ˜‰

Favorite leggings: Zella Live In High Waist Leggings. These leggings are definitely a splurge item unless you find them on sale like I did, but they are so worth it. I love them for working out and also just lounging around the house. They are so comfy and the best material I have ever worn for leggings.

Favorite mascara: Too Faced Better Than Sex. Why are mascara names always so funny?! Anyways, this mascara has been my fave for a while now. It doesn’t clump and it adds so much volume and length. Although, I recently received a sample of this new mascara from Benefit in my Birch Box so I’m excited to try it!

Favorite “Alexa” feature: Five minute plank workout. Like I said, so random. But I’ve been wanting to strengthen my core and I was playing around with the Alexa app for our Amazon Echo Dot and I found this five minute plank workout. It incorporates a straight arm plank, elbow plank, one legged plank, and side planks. I have been doing it every night, usually after bootcamp, and I am already noticing a difference.

Favorite recent local food: Acai bowls from Liquid Nirvana. I’ve featured these on the blog before (the picture below is an old one) but lately I have developed a routine of Saturday morning bootcamp at Mission followed by an acai bowl from Liquid Nirvana. These bowls taste amazing after a sweaty workout and they fill me up for a while.

That’s all I have for today! I hope you all have a fun and safe weekend πŸ™‚
