Friday Favorites (7/11)
Until last week, I never ate radishes. I just always knew them as the vegetable that Fraggles ate on Fraggle Rock, and that didn’t really make the seem appealing. But for some reason, I decided to buy a pint of them when I was at the farmer’s market last week, and I’m now completely hooked. I even made a special visit to the farmer’s market again this week for more of them. There are so many great health benefits to eating radishes. They can help to control blood pressure, protect us from certain types of cancer, relieve sore throats, keep our hearts healthy, and they also have anti-inflammatory properties. The Fraggles were on to something I guess.
I’m a big fan of the Skindinavia makeup setting spray, so I was really eager to try the primer spray. I typically don’t use a primer before putting on my foundation because a lot of them break me out. It has been so hot and humid in Charlotte this summer though that a primer is becoming an essential part of keeping my makeup in tact all day long. The primer spray actually feels really light, and it has definitely done a great job of keeping my makeup in place (along with the setting spray). It’s also 20% off right now on the Skindinavia website.
It has been a rainy week here, and when it rains, I feel like baking. Does anyone else ever get that same urge? The urge hit me pretty hard on Wednesday, but I didn’t really feel like running out to the store for a bunch of ingredients to make something. Luckily, I had just enough overripe bananas to make Paleo Banana Bread. I actually made mine into mini muffins, and they made for the perfect little snack. And needless to say, they made my house smell awesome.
Michael is completely and utterly obsessed with Cookie Monster. In fact, we play “C is for Cookie” in my car on repeat pretty much every day. When we were in Marshalls last weekend, I just couldn’t leave this Cookie Monster toy there (especially since Michael’s face lit up when he saw it). I love watching him take the toy cookies from the backpack and then feed them to Cookie Monster. The only problem is that it only comes with three cookies, and we were already down to just two about five minutes after we brought the toy home!
I recently blogged all about how much I love Lush and included this cream in my list of favorite products from the store. I’ve been using it religiously this week, and it makes my skin so silky and hydrated. It even gives my legs and arms a little glow which is so appropriate for the summer.
What are some of your favorites from the week?
