Friday Faves!!

Because I missed my Tuesday link-up post, I figured there’s no better time than the present.

I’m enjoying Taylor Swifts new song and apparently these guys are too.

Did you download IOS8 yet? So far i’m enjoying some of the changes (minus the draining battery). There seems to be lots of new features that may not be so obvious!

If you feel like baking this weekend, make this bread. I did and it was delicious.

This is going to be my next baking adventure.

*Updated to add: it’s delicious.

Influenster recently sent me the Venus Embrace Sensitive Razor* to try and review. If you’re like me and cut yourself every time you shave, this is the razor for you. Honestly, my legs have never felt so smooth. The handle is light and the size of the razor really allows you to hit all the curves of your legs. The only negative thing I could say about it is that it takes a little more than a quick shove under the shower head to clean the blade between strokes but the quality of the razor more than makes up for it. Also, the little hook that comes with the razor works better than any other one I’ve had. I don’t know what it is, but usually I get back to my shower to find the blade and handle separated on the ground because it fell. Not anymore.

Have a great weekend!

*This razor was sent to me free of charge by Influenster in order for me to provide an honest review. All opinions regarding this product are my own.

Tuesday Thoughts

Loving this quick article about being happy with gaining weight. Not about scale progress, about mental progress.

This Buzzfeed article on Instagram Food vs. Real Food is perfect. Love it.

I don’t think any dessert could be any more perfect than these s’mores cakelettes. Now in my bookmarks bar.

Obsessed with this song lately. The lyrics are perfection.

Two words. Pumpkin. Push-pops.

 

Tuesday Thoughts and Things

I had a midterm today so my writing capabilities are gone with my brain for the day. 

I like to give myself five ten minute breaks every half hour  twenty minutes or so when I’m studying to keep my mind fresh, my eyes clear and my focus time distraction free. In all honesty, I don’t have to take a break every twenty minutes but I do take them fairly often, even to just stand up and walk around for a second.

During these breaks, I found a few good things this week to share:

All of a sudden, I’m loving candy corn. I used to HATE these little candies. They were always gross to me. One day a few weeks ago I had a piece and decided I like them. I now have a bowl on my table which was a bad idea. Apparently I’m not the only one that hated this Halloween staple though.

This article from Buzzfeed is me. I’m not even sorry about it.

I love when people do funny stuff with babies and these dad/baby daughter selfies are no exception.

and when babies do cute things, like this one who has the most emotional reaction when her mom sings to her. Precious.
