Friday Faves 1.12
Hi friends! How are you? I hope you had a wonderful week! It was the kids’ first week back at school (wah) so we’re back in the routine and I’m already counting down the days until Rodeo Break. <— it’s an Arizona thing but we always look forward to a couple of days off in Feb
What are you up to this weekend? We’re going to do a sushi and movie night, get in a hike, and meet up with some friends in Scottsdale. I hope you have a fun weekend!
I started a 14-day EquiLife detox before I head into the CBO protocol. I’ll be doing a full post about everything, but let me know if I can help with any questions or include anything in the post.
It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party. This is where I share some of my favorite finds form the week and around the web. I always love to hear about your faves, too, so please shout out something you’re loving in the comments section below.
Friday Faves 1.12
Liv is 12! I can’t even believe it. She’s officially a *tween* and so bright, intelligent, hilariously sarcastic, and I love her passion for dance, skincare, and music.
She asked for a homemade cake instead of a bakery cake, so P and I made this for her:
We spent the day at the mall for shopping, boba, and ramen with her best friend, and then had cake with my mom and nana. Disneyland was her big celebration, so we had a lovely low-key day on her actual birthday.
Italki! I was googling ways to practice Spanish and this had excellent reviews. The short story is that my mom’s side of the family speaks Spanish, but growing up, I’d always answer in English. I minored in Spanish in college, and would read novels and write essays, but we spent very little time actually speaking. So while I understand it really well and can write, and much prefer Spanish music over English, I don’t have a lot of confidence speaking it.
I signed up for Italki and had my first lesson this week. It felt so nice to actually PRACTICE and get tips from a professional. I’d love to eventually record some Spanish workout videos, or help 1:1 clients in Spanish, so I feel like this is a great stepping stone.
Read, watch, listen:
Latest read. I feel like I can’t read it fast enough; it’s packed with incredible info. I want to do everything I can do help Mazer have a happy, healthy, long doggy life.
(The goodest girl)
Natural immunity boosters your whole family needs.
Any activity is better for your heart than sitting (even sleeping).
Fitness + good eats:
Sakara goodies! My friends at Sakara sent a taste of their January Reset program, which I enjoyed earlier this week. It was such an awesome treat when we came back from Disneyland. You still have two more chances to join their Reset – I did a full blog post about it here and you can use XOGINAH for 20% off sitewide. I’ve enjoyed the jackfruit barrio taco (sooooo good), protein banana bread, apple cider muffin, Thai curry bowl, and all of the delicious, beautiful salads.
Four Trader Joe’s meal hacks. (The comments section is treasure trove of recipes and combos)
Peanut butter pretzel bars
15-minute HIIT workout (no repeats)
Fashion + beauty:
My fave jeans right now. Flared but not too much and the perfect amount of stretch. (On sale right now, too)
Beautycounter free gift time! Check it out here and I’d love to help with any skincare recs.
Happy Friday, friends!
