January Favorites

Happy Friday! I hope everyone is excited for the weekend!

I decided to bring back my Friday Favorites once per month instead of every other week because I have to limit the amount of time I spend searching for things on the internet/social media. Otherwise I’ll go NUTS.



Per usual, there’s a random collection of things I’ve been loving lately with hyperlinks that will take you to the original source. I hope you enjoy them and that you all have a wonderful weekend!


Favorite Dream Kitchen: Cypress Wall Kitchen. I can’t stop dreaming about what our kitchen is going to look like when we finally get around to buying a house one day. It’s not good, actually, because I have an exact idea in my head of what I want. Lots of natural light, clean white counters and cabinets, a big farm sink, and earthy wood accents. That’s not too much to ask, right? ;)

Favorite Healthy Lunch: Asian Chopped Salad with Sesame Soy Dressing. This would have been perfect for my healthy lunch round-up last week. I love that Gina thought to finely chop the snow peas, such a great idea. The colors alone are enough to bust me out of a winter funk!

Favorite Snack: Peanut Butter Balls. Peanut butter? Check! Chocolate? Check! Drool on my face? Check!

Favorite Cozy Winter Meal: Vegan Seven Spice Chickpea Stew. All of the spices in this sound so warming and healthy. Plus, it’s made in one pot. You can’t beat that with a stick!

Favorite Album: Adele 25. I know we’ve all heard Hello a million times by now, but there are so many other great songs on this album. My personal favorite is Water Under the Bridge. I can’t help lip syncing and dancing when it comes on.

Favorite Natural Lotion: Andalou Naturals Cocoa Body Butter. I feel like I’m always mentioning lotion in my favorites. But seriously, I LOVE this one. It’s made with high quality natural ingredients, it’s cruelty-free and it smells like chocolate dessert. What more could you want?



Favorite House/Winter Pants: Athleta Polar Tech Power Stretch Pants. These are the coziest, warmest, most comfortable pants I have ever owned. I bought a pair almost four years ago and have washed them a billion times but they’re still in perfect condition. They were on sale recently so I stocked up on a few more pairs for the next 4+ years. If you can find any left in your size, I highly recommend them!

Favorite Workout: CorePower Yoga. One of my goals for 2016 was to start doing yoga on a weekly basis. Rather than spend money at a studio, I decided to search for something I could do at home which brought me to this video. I enjoyed doing it so much that I purchased their DVD from Amazon and it’s been a great way to fit in little bits of yoga on my own time!


Favorite Supplement: MegaFood Balanced B Complex. If you read yesterday’s post then you know that I decided to stop eating yogurt every morning. Because of that, I wanted to make sure I was getting enough B-12. I’m not a huge fan of taking supplements but I like this one because it’s made from whole food sources and it’s certified vegan.




Favorite Guilty Pleasure: The Bachelor. I just can’t help being obsessed with this show. I think Ben might be my favorite Bachelor yet. Are you watching it? Who do you think he’s going to pick?!

Favorite Decadent Treat: Fudgy Avocado Brownies with Fudge Frosting. THIS. I can’t. I’m dead.
