Friday Faves


Happy Friday!
The weekend is near and sunshine is in my future so I'm content with that. To say this week was an extremely busy one would be an understatement! It's been challenging working our schedule around house showings to potential buyers (not a bad problem to have) and then all the paperwork involved with buying a new house...and then my full-time gig so it's been a bit draining but it doesn't stop there, I'm also knee deep in some other time-consuming projects (more on that later) and I'm reading a book! I haven't read a book in years so finding the time has been challenging but I'm really enjoying the one I decided to get started with.

The Book
 I wanted to read something that would inspire me to grow personally and professionally and WOW the The Go-Giver was the perfect choice! I'm halfway through and it's already changed my outlook on so many things to do with productivity, creating value, and what makes you a successful person.

Healthy Meals
This Blackened Shrimp, Asparagus and Avocado Salad has some of my favorite ingredients and I can't wait to make it for our healthy weeknight dinners.

Favorite Scents
I just started burning the Hello Beautiful 3-wick candle from my recent Bath & Body Works haul and I'm in love! I'd like to say this is my favorite candle scent so far but I know there's a few others that are equally amazing.

The Body & Mind
I just got back into yoga since my best friend is in town so we can go together.
I've been loving the outdoor yoga near Lake Eola downtown plus it's affordable.

Enjoy the weekend!

  1. Sounds like an interesting read, I'll have to put it on my library request list. My favorite BBW candle of the season (so far) is Bowties & Bourbon but I'll have to check yours out the next time I'm stocking up (which at this rate, will be very soon!).

  2. Affordable group exercise is a total dream.

    I won a private yoga lesson so I might give it a go!

    Have a great weekend.

  3. Haha - I'm not sure if that's a compliment or not lol! Oh my gosh that salad looks amazing - thank you for sharing it! I hope you have a great weekend - and it's somewhat relaxing! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. Outdoor yoga sounds so fun! That book looks interesting, I may have to add it to my list. My coworker just bought a house and is going through the craziness with paperwork so I can understand how under water you may feel. Hopefully things ease up for you and you enjoy your weekend!!

  5. Please share a review of that salad once you make it! Looks delish!

  6. Trying to juggle everything when you're trying to sell your house really is a pain! But hopefully all of those showings will pay off soon and you'll be able to sell your house quickly! Yoga with your bestie sounds like the perfect way to relax after all that stress too! I hope you have a great weekend!

  7. That salad looks so amazing! I hope you sell your home quickly so you can be done with all those showings!

  8. Ohhh I am going to have to check out that candle. We need some new ones. There is nothing like a big filling salad bowl on a south hot spring day! Yum! Have a great weekend!

  9. Yay on Yoga and oh I hear you in the busy girl. Just wrapped up day one of the garage sale and big success!! That's crazy I bought Hello Beautiful Monday and burned it everyday, ha, it's my happy scent, best one to me too! Oh I do hope you enjoy gorgeous sun and warmth on your beautiful face this weekend!!! ;-)

  10. Outdoor yoga is the best! I miss doing it on the beach when I lived in California. Love that shrimp meal...looks so good for a summer dish!! Have a great weekend girl!

  11. i really need to get back to yoga. when i was off work, i did a one month groupon thing and it was amazing; it really helped loosen me up between muay thai classes. i think i should start yoga again.

  12. I'm so excited for you all with all the house stuff going on! It's a process to go through, but you'll be so pumped to get in your new house and have the old one sold. I went to yoga one time and it was a disaster.hahaha I hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  13. I've tried so hard to be good and haven't been to B&BW since their after-Christmas sale, but that candle you're burning looks so cute! Hope you're having a great weekend!
