Friday Favorites!

Hiya FitVista Friends!

I've been wanting to write this post for awhile, and then Friday hits and BOOM suddenly it's 5pm and I'm ready to call it a week. Time flies when you're trying to do ALL THE THINGS and wrap up everything on Fridays right?!?

I used to steamroll through the last day of the work week, try to get a million and a half aspirational things done and crash in to the weekends (and unwind and self-medicate with wine).

Nowadays, I focus on quiet admin tasks the last half of Friday afternoon, respond to all client emails before the weekend and then push ALL longer-term projects to the following week. It's working! #LessonsFromAdrenalFatigue

Anywho, my dear friend Teddi from TeddiSetGo.com has been writing these Friday Favorites for years now and I love them. While I was on a long run a couple weeks back, I crafted my own.

Thanks for reading what I've been loving lately!

Alex's parents got me a generous Lululemon Gift Card for Christmas and these Wunder Under Crops in Heathered Black and the Align Crop in Black both feel like second skin. The latter is made from their new Nulu Fabric that makes you feel "Naked" (in the best way possible). Let the record show, I am NOT a fan of fancy, shiny, sweat-wicking running tights. They feel really weird against my skin, I get strange sweats in them and I don't find them flattering. I'm really picky about my workout bottoms. I love cropped tights that feel and look more like cotton. Who's with me? 

 These are actually NOT the Lululemon tights (because they're clearly in the laundry), but instead a very similar pair I picked up at Nordstrom Rack. All about that GREY everything.

GREENS. My brother got Alex and I a plant subscription service for Christmas! For three months in a row, we're getting a plant delivered from ProPlants to "oxygenate" our space. My brother knows me so well! What a great gift, right? Use this code for $10 off or this code for 20% off. 

 I need to water it ... but that's our first plant from monthly plant service. Cool container, right?

In early January, the amazing bone broth company Broth Masters sent me a super cool (get it?) frozen package with eight packets of their DELICIOUS bone broth to sample. Here's a photo on my Instagram where I list all the benefits of bone broth. I'm proud to say I'm now an ambassador for the company! Check out their site here - it's so easy to order bone broth to ship to you home, heal your gut and build up your immunity.  

 

You guuuuuuys! I'm ordering new FitVista tees, more of the Black V-Neck Bella & Canvas edition. So super soft. Big hit.

 I've been digging this healthy chia jam all week. Check out my Instagram for the recipe.

DORK ALERT: Who's seen Becoming Warren Buffett on HBO? It's so good. I even made Alex sign up for HBO Now (again) so we could watch it. The hedge fund/mutual fund I used to work at followed his style of investing, but even if you don't have a finance background, this was a really fun documentary!  I'm also reading his biography now, The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life. I am so in to memoirs / biographies of successful entrepreneurs these days. 

 

My Kindle broke. Wah, wah. I threw it in my bag and my favorite gel pen must have punctured the screen. I literally watched three, mayyyybe five, shopping comparison videos on the black kindle versus the new white kindleAfter much hemming and hawing, I ordered the white one. Because it will look better in Instagram photos. YES, TRUTH. I am the worst. 

 

Speaking of Instagram, I've been digging this white marble board from Sur La Table for food photography. (Photo above of jam).

 

 Kind of random photo but I saw this rose along the boardwalk in LIC the day after Valentines Day, perched along the pier. It's GREY in NYC, but it made me happy. Love Love.

And speaking of filming and photography = the OSCAR GOES TO LA LA LAND! I never see movies twice, but La La Land made me laugh, made my cry (yes, tears were streaming down my face at the end) and it made me want to dance. Please let it win the Oscar and please let Ryan Gosling don another white tux. 

Counting down the days 'til visiting my parents in FLORIDA for the long weekend - we leave the 22nd! Sunshine, long beach walks and jumping in the pool. Exactly what my body needs right now. I'm definitely getting in a bit of a seasonal (SAD) funk. This always happens this time of year ....

Thanks for listening to my rambles - happy Friday ya'll! 

Be well. Do you. Find your own fun. Be a little bit weird. 

That's all I've got - peace, hugs and veggies!
