Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a nice week! A few highlights from mine – My friend Blair sent Michael and I the Defined Dish’s cookbook last weekend, and we tried out a couple of recipes this week. They both turned out so good! I have a few of her recipes lined up for this coming week’s menu too! The recipes are Whole30 approved so they’re all pretty healthy and simple too. Great weeknight dinner options!

Another highlight was that I received a package from Amazon with a few really good finds this week! I haven’t been shopping much over the past few months, but I grabbed a couple of easy summer dresses and two pairs of shoes, and they all turned out to be AMAZING! All 4 pieces are actual Amazon brand pieces so the quality is really great. I snagged this light and flowy maxi (love the yellow!), this linen tiered dress, this pair of suede heels (LOVE!), and this block heel pair too!

Weekly Workouts

This week’s workouts …

Lately, working out has been more of a check-off-my-list type of activity rather than an enjoyable one. I’ve definitely gotten into a rut with Orangetheory at home. Michael and I have been doing the workouts at home pretty much since quarantine began back in March. I’m thinking of switching it up next week. If you have any good at home workout videos or apps that you recommend, drop them in the comments!

This week, Michael and I did Orangetheory workouts Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Orangetheory is still offering daily workouts on YouTube for free.

One thing I’m not sick of yet, long walks! I’m planning on getting in a long walk today and over the weekend too!

Podcast Recs

How I Built This: Shake Shack: Danny Meyer – Definitely the best podcast I listened to this week! The others were filler and not even worth mentioning. I love Shake Shack, and Danny Meyer’s story of starting his restaurant empire in NYC is really inspiring and a great story! Danny also owns, among other restaurants, Gramercy Tavern and Union Square Cafe.

Weekend Plans

I’m looking forward to another low key weekend at home. The weather forecast doesn’t look great, but I’m hoping the rain holds off so I can spend the majority of the day on Saturday outside. I’m planning on joining Michael for another round of golf over the weekend!

My Favorite Things this Week

A few of my favorite things this week …

Amazon Sunglasses // I snagged a new pair of Amazon sunglasses last week. I’ve been loving them! The quality is really great and they’re under $15!

Beautycounter Brightening Facial Oil + Gua Sha Stone // I’ve shared my Beautycounter Brighting Facial Oil a million times before – I’m obsessed. But this week I started pairing it with my gua sha stone for a little facial massage before bed. A heavenly combo! I feel so relaxed heading to bed each night. If you’re not sure how to use the gua sha stone, do a quick google search and watch a video or two. It’s pretty easy to pick up on once you do a time or two.

Have a nice weekend!
