Friday Favorites (1/9)

Happy Friday!

Before I get into my favorites, I want to tell about an interview that’s up on The Mini Skirt today featuring Brittany of A Healthy Slice of Life.  I know that many of you probably read her blog and might be interested to learn more about her thoughts and tips on balancing motherhood, a healthy lifestyle, and personal hobbies and interests. And if you aren’t familiar with Brittany already, trust me when I say that you’ll love her!

As for this week’s favorites, I have some really good ones (yes, I say that every week), and I hope that you enjoy them…


Perfect Fit Cinnamon Roll Protein Powder

Perfect Fit Cinnamon Roll Protein Powder

This is my new favorite protein powder by far, and I’ve been using it in pancakes, mug cakes, and smoothies every day for the past two weeks.  This powder is plant-based and free of soy, gluten, dairy, and added sugars.  The only bummer is that it is a limited edition flavor which means that I’m going to have to start hoarding it!


Silk Cashewmilk

Silk Unsweetened Cashewmilk

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I bought Silk’s new cashewmilk earlier in the week.  I couldn’t wait to try it when I got home from the store, and I immediately added it to my coffee. It was instant love! I actually think that it tastes similar to almond milk, but it is a bit creamier and less watery in consistency.  I also find it to be slightly sweeter (even though it is unsweetened). Bottom line: If you like almond milk, you’ll like this.  I actually think that I like it even better than almond milk, and that’s saying a lot coming from me!




One of my Christmas gifts from MT was a fitbit, and even though I’ve only had it for a few weeks now, I already cannot imagine life without it.  It is such a great reminder to stay active during the day.  After all, it is pretty easy to be sedentary in this digital age.  I have yet to master putting the thing on myself though.  They sure don’t make it easy!  If anyone has any tips, please let me know.


100 Percent Pure Fruit Pigmented Mascara

100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Mascara (Black Tea)

As much as I love natural makeup products, it has been a real struggle to find a mascara that truly does the job.  Most of them smudge like crazy, and the only thing worse than putting chemicals on your eyelashes is walking around with raccoon eyes.  Well, I have finally found the one for me.  This mascara by 100% Pure doesn’t smudge on me at all, but it is still gentle and washes off easily.  It is also lengthening, pigmented, and smells really good-which isn’t a characteristic that I’ve even looked for in a mascara before now, but I’ll take it.


Cinnamon sugared doughnut candle

Cinnamon Sugared Doughnut Candle

I’m pretty sure that I brought this candle up back in the fall, but after getting another one on sale at Bath & Body Works after the holidays, I’ve fallen in love with it all over again.  By the way, it is still on sale now.  I burn it in the kitchen, and whenever I do, my husband always asks if I am baking something.  The candle actually does smell good enough to eat- though I promise that you won’t find it among my list of favorite snacks any time soon…or ever.


Have a great weekend!

  1. ooh i need to find the cashew milk. thanks for sharing that!

    • You’re welcome! I found it at Harris Teeter (which I know you don’t have in Boston), but someone on Instagram told me that they found theirs at Wal-mart. 🙂

  2. Yes, the cashew milk is amazing! I finally got my hands on some at an out-of-the-way store and am LOVING it!

    • I am glad that you like it too! I still have almond milk in my fridge, and I swear that I am probably never going to use it now. I am hooked on cashew milk!

  3. I enjoy almond milk and will have to check out cashew milk – love that there are so many options available.

    Happy Weekend 🙂

  4. Ok seriously THANK YOU for finding this mascara. I’m seriously ordering it as soon as I post here haha!!! It helps that I need a new one so badly right now. I’ve loved Physicians Formula in the past, but you’re right, will smudge if anything happens (say, laughing too hard until you cry – I’m like uh oh haha). And good to know about the cashew milk. I totally see using it in coffee for a creamier drink! Especially since I’d rather something creamy not be soy milk. I swear we’re on the same page: I got a fitbit for Christmas too and I wear it everyday (my post yesterday actually talks about this fact haha). I love seeing my stats. I’m slightly obsessed now 😉 I need to find you as a “friend” on there!

    • I am obsessed with it too! I keep trying to beat my stats from the previous day. It is kind of an obsession at this point! You will LOVE the mascara. I actually ordered mine on Amazon. It was a tiny bit cheaper. 🙂

  5. OMG that candle looks amazing, and I can’t even smell it! I might have to try cashew milk too– sounds yummy.

  6. I was on the fence about trying the cinnamon bun Perfect Fit, but I think I’m going to have to order a bag!

    • I love it! I have been especially using it in my protein pancakes. I really wish that it wasn’t so expensive because I would seriously buy 4 more bags of it!

  7. i stocked up on candles!!! that is one of my fave ones.

  8. Oh, I want to try that Cashew Milk. I didn’t know Silk even made that. Yum! I also think I need to get a candle like that one!
