Today we are having our first taste of fall. It is a cool 67 degrees out right now and the high is only expected to be around 70. You guys know that I love the cooler temps. Unfortunately, it is also rainy out, so it is kind of dark and gloomy. It looks like the perfect day for me to curl up on the couch and finish reading our book club book for this month. Today for my Friday Favorites, I am sharing 5 things that I am loving right now. Check them out!
If you have been reading this blog for a while or know me well, you know that I despise glitter. I absolutely cannot stand it. I hate how it gets everywhere and then you can’t get rid of it ever. It seems to multiply. However, I do like the look of glittery things. As long as it is contained like in my new favorite nail polish color. I love this color for several reasons. One is that it is pretty neutral color. I would describe it as a light pink color with a little shimmer. It can go with most things I wear without majorly clashing. It is subtle, which I really like too. Surprisingly, I really do like that is has a little sparkle to it.
I don’t know about where you live, but many restaurants around here these days are doing away with straws altogether. I get he reasoning behind it. My youngest will tell you straight up how bad straws are for the sea turtles and we need to save them. However, I am a germ-a-phobe and have a serious issue with drinking out of a glass or paper cup from restaurants without a straw. I don’t want to put my mouth where someone else that I don’t know has put their mouth. It really grosses me out. This has become a huge dilemma for me now that so many places don’t have them. My solution is this nifty travel straw that folds up nicely into this little case and fits right in my purse. Anytime I am out and there is no straw, I can just pull out my own to use. Then when I am ready to leave, I dry it off with a napkin and fold it back into the case to wash later.
I have had this Pampered Chef tool for years, and I use it multiple times a week to chop and mix food. It is really great when cooking ground beef or ground turkey. It helps me to separate it into smaller pieces. I love Pampered Chef products as a whole, but this is definitely one of my favorites that gets used the most.
4. One Bars
A friend introduced these protein bars to me several months ago, and I really like them. I have tried so many different bars over the years and have never found one that I really liked and had really given up trying new ones. I am kind of a picky eater, so finding a bar for me to eat on the go or when I need a boost has been difficult until now. I really do like these One Bars. There are so many different flavors, and I haven’t even tried them all yet. In fact I just ordered a variety pack from Amazon the other day so I could try some more flavors. My current favorite is Birthday Cake followed by Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough as a close second. The Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake is also pretty good. Some of the other flavors include Lemon Cake, Maple Glazed Doughnut, Salted Carmel, Chocolate Brownie, Almond Bliss, Cinnamon Roll, Blueberry Cobbler, Peanut Butter Pie, Cookie ‘n Crème, and Red Velvet Cake. I love that there is such a huge variety because it keeps me from getting tired of them. Each bar contains 20 grams of protein and only 1 gram of sugar. Oh, and they are also gluten free!
These joggers are super comfortable, affordable, and cute. They are perfect for lounging around the house for days like today when it is dark, rainy, and cool outside.
