Friday Favorites Roundup

Y’all, this is NOT my outfit for today. This was  back around LAST FALL/WINTER.  It is still around eighty degrees in Southern California and the weather doesn’t look to be dropping anytime soon. Which makes this Fall loving gal really sad.

Come on, California! Get with it!

In the meantime, I am dreaming of sweaters, booties, warm and cozy things for your home, and soups to make at home.

First, who watched last week’s UCLA game against Texas A&M? I thought for sure I would have to comfort my Bruin loving husband because it did not look good. That comeback game was one for the books because even I was cheering (and I am a USC fan!!!)  I love games like that!! So good!

Now for my favorites for this week.

Since Fall is slowly happening, and for some of you, the transition into cooler weather is already happening in your area, I have been browsing some of my favorite sites for pretty Fall worthy items to add to my wardrobe.  I am always on the lookout for sweaters, duster cardigans, jeans, and booties, as well as some accessories.  A lot of these are on sale as well, so if you are able, snag a few of the items you have been eying before the price goes up again!

When it comes to my home, I love switching out pillows to match the seasons.  One of my favorite shops happens to be Linen and Ivory. They have such cute merchandise so if you are looking for something festive, you definitely should check this small business out.
I love this pillow
And this one
Name that movie!!!  It is one of my favorites for Halloween. My sisters and I have always wanted to dress up as the Sanderson Sisters for Halloween. I call dibs on Winifred Sanderson.
There are a ton of beautiful pieces, so please go check them out!!!  I have these two Pillow covers currently in my home:
And Candles? Yes, we need fall scented candles in our home! Pronto!
My favorite candle scent is Marshmallow Fireside from Bath and Body Works. You guys. YAAAASSSS!
Bath and Body Works is having a special right now on these candles (regularly $24.50) but you get them for $12.50 each when you buy 2 or more.  Do it. I always stock up on my favorite scents when the three wick candles go on sale. I love having them burn in my home, especially when the weather cools down and when I am reading….or just anytime really. I don’t need permission to light a candle!
I am also dreaming of delicious soups to make during Fall/Winter months that are relatively easy, yet delicious and healthy and satisfying.  That is super important to me.
Here are some soup recipes that have caught my eye recently and I am going to make in the coming weeks:
That is all I have for today.  What are you loving this week?  If you don’t already, follow me on Insta to see what I am up to daily!

Friday Favorites Roundup week of 8/21

Yippeee! It is Friday! I am so dang excited for the weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, our family likes to go on little adventures, whether that is hiking, trying out a new lunch spot, the beach, or just chilling and watching a movie. We do our very best to spend time together in the middle of being so busy with activity. I don’t want to miss a single moment with my family.

On to my favorites!

I am really, really wishing for Fall to hurry up and get here. I have a few Duster cardigans in my closet that need to be worn and I can’t wear them in ninety degree weather. Not happening.

If you don’t have one, you need one or a few! I am searching for a leopard one for myself to add to my collection (so if you spot one, let me know!) because it would be perfect for Fall and for date night in some cute black skinnies and heels. I have already envisioned the outfit I would wear with it. Does that make me weird? Please tell me I am not the only one!

Anyway, the one I am wearing is from Lularoe (my sister, Sheena Roark is a retailer) but here are some other duster cardigan options here, here, and here.

I am currently reading and finishing up Cultivate by Lara Casey. I took a brief break from it to read Be Obsessed or Be Average. These two books are completely different, but I love them both. Excited to share my thoughts and what I learned from Cultivate.

I like simple meals as much as possible. But I have also been digging making Eggs and Kale for breakfast. It is so easy and I just feel so good after eating it. I can’t explain it!

It is especially hardy after a workout. I use my favorite organic spices, Balanced Bites Spices. My husband loves to use the Taco and Fajita seasoning. I love the Savory, Diner, or Italian.

Speaking of workouts, lately, I have been enjoying the 17 Minute HIIT workout by Joel Freeman (co-creator of Core De Force). When I say it is 17 minutes, I mean it. It is intense. It gets the job done, and then you get to go on with your day. It is only available for BOD members, so if you aren’t one, and you would like a free 14 day trial (and you don’t have a coach!) you should check it out! I took this workout (and more) with me to Laughlin this past week and it was awesome to kick butt and not have to figure out what to do for my workout while on vacay. Winning at life!

That is all for this week, sister friends!

Friday Favorites Roundup

Happy Friday, friends!

We made it to the end of the week and the weekend is upon us.  I am so dang excited for the weekend. Why?

Because on Sunday, I leave for Laughlin. Yaaasss! I will be traveling with my Mama for a late birthday getaway and I can’t wait to plop my butt in the river and just relax.  Sometimes, when you start to wig out, you need a break.  And my favorite place to relax is by the river. So excited!

I have decided that each week, I will do a Friday Favorites Roundup of my favorite things that happened or I saw or I read or purchased. I love being inspired by pretty things, and I am sure many of you do too!

I got these amazing 1. state Iddah Performance Cutaway booties at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale as a birthday gift to myself and they are gorgeous! They come in so many colors.  I originally had wanted a different color, but after I placed my order, I got an email letting me know that the color I had wanted had sold out. So I went online and bought the black instead.  They are so cute and they are great with dresses and with jeans. Love them!

I have been obsessed with graphic tee’s and pretty skirts lately.  I had purchased this limited edition Lularoe Metallic skirt sometime during the holiday season last year, but I never got to wear it.  This week, I decided to wear it with my Greatest Commandment Tee from Cross Training Couture.  For the skirt, since mine was a limited edition piece, I am not sure many LLR consultants will still have them, but you can find similar pieces here , here, here.

It is no secret that I do enjoy cooking, but I truly don’t have a ton of time, especially now that school is back in session and baseball will be starting up soon, and not to mention swim has never ended! Holy cow!  I know I am really late to the Instant Pot game, but I finally tried it out awhile ago, and I am in love. So much that I got rid of my slow cooker, since my instant pot has the slow cooker function on it. The one that is linked is on sale, and I am not sure if it is still available, but you can definitely try and see if it is!  When they drop in price, they go fast!

I made an incredible dish called Lemon Garlic chicken from Predominately Paleo and it was a huge hit!  My husband wasn’t too sure about the Zoodles I had with the dish, but he gobbled it up so I call that a win in my book. And he even ate left overs…….yaaaaaassssss!

I also seem to be obsessed with anything blush when it comes to workout apparel.  I fully believe that when you buy yourself new workout clothes and gear, you are far more motivated to crush it. Yes? No? This is what I tell myself anyway! My husband and wallet may disagree with me, but that is my story and I am sticking to it! These are some of the things I am crushing on right now and are currently  on my want to buy real soon list.

And last, I am so inspired by my Back to School, Mama community. We started on Monday, and they are seriously crushing it! I am one proud coach as I know when you are a busy mama and things get super busy, it can be so hard to get into a healthy routine for yourself, but these women are willing to try and do it. And they are succeeding and pushing me to stay committed. I love it!!!
What inspired you this week? I would love to hear!
