What I've Been Loving Lately

Here are a few things I have been loving lately...

This e.l.f all over color stick. I have the golden peach shade and I love adding it to my cheek bones for a summer glow. I also add it to my lips with some gloss over top for a shimmery nude look.

Being back in the country. I will always desire to live near the water, but for now being back at my parents and saving money to buy that dream house is what I am loving. Plus, having someone to eat dinner with {my momma} while CL is working is great! I didn't realize how much I missed that.

Having the weekend and space to run around with my pup. I ride my bike through the yard and fields while he chases me. If you ever need to tire out a pup this is the way to do it!

Taking showers at night and putting my hair in a braid to get no fuss waves in the morning. I wish I added this to my routine months ago!

Jillian Michaels Yoga DVD. I picked this up yesterday and tested it out before bed! I really like how she incorporated strength training with yoga using your own body weight. I will say the chaturanga dandasana push ups made me want to vomit...

My day planner. I finally picked up a new day planner after abandoning mine after college. I definitely need a reminder of vacations, birthdays and to-dos!

Signing up for another 5k on September 25th! It's for the St Jude's Childrens fund, which is a great reason to run and will give me an excuse to get back into my running shoes!

I named our group Team Boo-ty Call! If you are in the Maryland area you can register here.

I love my crockpot. Because tonight it is doing all the work for me so when I come home dinner is served. I just premade some meatballs (recipe, recipe) and covered with some TJ marinara.

What are you loving lately?


  1. I went home to Portland this weekend so I was loving being away from the water and eating dinner with my mom too! That bike ride sounds like fun!

  2. I have been using that Yoga DVD too -- those push ups are KILLER! :-) my husband swears at the TV when I make him do's pretty funny! xoxo from Trinidad

  3. I'm loving airconditioning :)
    Oh and you. (Obviously.)

  4. I have the same elf color stick! I love it for summer. I put it on my brow bones sometimes to give a little shimmer to the eyes!

  5. I love that ELF all-over stick, too. Actually I love all their stuff - mostly because I'm a cheapas, but still. Their gel eyeliner is a winner as well.

  6. Ooooh that all over color stick looks great! I should give it a try!

  7. I love day planners and wavey hair after braids :)

  8. Haha, I looove your fun run team name! Way too cute. Maybe I'll drive up to Baltimore and join you!

    The e.l.f. all over color stick looks amazing. Summer shimmer is a definite must-do. :) Super fun day planner too. And your pup? So stinkin' adorable! Can I please come steal him?

    I'm loving my Havaiiana flip-flops. I recently bought three new pairs and have been living in them. Two of the pairs have cute little flower jewels on them, which makes them perfect for dressing up a bit. xoxoxo

  9. love your braid idea! although with curly hair...not sure if mine would look as frizz free and classy as yours :)

  10. I need to sign up for a 5k too...and do more yoga!

  11. I totally need to get back to using my planner!! Awesome on signing up for the 5K. Aren't moms the best??

    Lately I've been loving: Kombucha! I can't get enough! Anddddd Mama Pea! I'm pumped for her cookbook, and pumped that she's signing one for me to give to one of my readers. Isn't she the coolest?

  12. @Kaitlyn@TheTieDyeFiles That is awesome! I just found her jambalaya recipe and am headed to TJ's this week to pick up some meatless sausages! I can't wait to enter!
