Friday Favorites!

Another week has gone by and August is officially half over! How that happened so quickly, I have no idea.

But I am so excited because next week on Thursday after work, I’m heading up to Alaska for an extended weekend to visit Dave! He is currently up there working on Season 2 of The Last Alaskans. #proudgirlfriend 🙂 I’ve never been to Alaska and I’m so excited to see it in all its summertime glory! Hopefully we won’t see any bears in Denali.

This weekend we are having a going away party for one of our roommates who is heading to Arizona at the end of this month and I plan to relax and catch up on some things. Can’t wait to hear what you are all planning to do this weekend. Happy Friday friends!

This week Giuliana stepped down as the main E! New anchor after 14 years and Bill wrote her the sweetest letter. They are such a great couple and a great example of what a marriage should be. Love them! gty_rancic_lb_150514_16x9_992

Fun fact: last year while I was training for my first full marathon in Santa Monica, I literally ran into Bill Rancic and he couldn’t have been nicer. We grew up in neighboring towns and he’s a good ole Midwest boy and was so friendly!  br


I kind of adore Reese Witherspoon. She is the epitome of a Southern lady and I just love her style and wholesomeness. She recently did an interview with Southern Living Magazine and talked about how no one is parenting perfectly and how women are all doing the best they can. And although I’m not a parent  yet, I totally relate that that no one is perfect! reese-witherspoon-1-600x800THE NEW YOU(3)

People Magazine posted an article about healthy beach snacks and even though summer is winding down, we can always use reminders of healthy snacks that aren’t oreos and potato chips. (Though who doesn’t love those?!)



Karastase is offering a free download of a book of braids! With lots of fun ways to style braids for all different occasions.  My hair is currently a little past my shoulders, not ideal for braiding length, but I’m sure I could get away with a shorter braid. For the last two years I’ve grown my hair out and donated it to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths program and I’m currently in the growing it out stage. 🙂Main-Header-1000x378-No-Copy
