Friday Favorites

I would be happier if it was next Friday, since that's the next time I am off, but I will take what I can get. Here's hoping it gets less crazy hot this weekend!

Favorite Conditioner:
I picked up this based sheerly off smell, and it smells even more majestic once it is in my hair. If you see it on the shelf, inhale it; it is amazing.
Favorite Eyeliner:
My old Pixi eyeliner from Target was running a bit dry, so I decided to splurge and get a Kat Von D liner from Sephora. It's so smooth, I love it. It's also a cruelty-free brand.
Favorite Recipe:
I struggle to find a use for my vegan protein powder, even though I need lots and lots of protein right now. I am not a smoothie person most mornings. I usually want some almond butter toast or oatmeal. But on the weekends, when I have a little extra time, I make vegan protein pancakes, and they are pretty delicious. Also, it only takes a few ingredients (I use almond milk instead of water, because I like milk in pancakes). Once you go maple, you never go back to the regular syrup.
Favorite Purchase:
Our old dish rack was from IKEA, and it was great for a while but had started to rust, and I don't want to dry my dishes on a rusty rack. We had a bamboo rack before which lasted for a while, so I'm giving it another shot and got this one. It's actually great at holding almost anything so far. We have a very limited space on our counter, so it can be hard to find a good compact one.
Favorite Moment:
When Greg sent me baby stuff. He knows me so well.
Favorite Accomplishment:
Cleaning things and going through stuff in the garage and underneath the bed last weekend. Now I have a small bag of donation stuff, and I was able to get this tub half-empty. There's still more to go and I am trying to make room everywhere, but every little bit helps.
Favorite Pregnancy Moment:
How I feel when anyone comments on my size. Usually, it's disbelief when I tell them I am 7 months along.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  2. I'll for sure give that conditioner a sniff whenever I see it! I'm slowly but surely using up all of my "cruel" products and now majority of what I use is cruelty free. I buy most of my skincare stuff from Etsy so it's easier to stay away from "bad" stuff lol. The vegan pancakes look delicious, and you're right pancakes with maple syrup are much tastier :)

    1. I do the same thing - using up my regular products and trying to replace them with cruelty free. I haven't checked out skincare on etsy. That's a good idea!

  4. The Kat Von D eyeliner is so amazing! I think that was a great splurge! And I still can't believe that you're 7 months pregnant either! You definitely don't look like you're in your 3rd Trimester!

  7. Tell me more about the liner. I had one from Mac which was awesome but I wanted a cheaper dupe replacement. How's the Pixie?

  8. When we moved, we did such a purge... but I still have things to take to donate or sell! I wish someone would do it for me. And that I didn't have to pay them, lol

    1. I love getting rid of stuff, but I have to remember to actually take it to donate. I still have my bag of stuff sitting there and haven't put it in my car yet.
