Hi, friends! Happy, happy, happy Friday!
Just wanted to share some things I am especially loving lately. And, of course, I’d love to hear what you’re digging too! Drop me a comment below!
Trader Joe’s in Hingham
We all love Trader Joe’s, right? I mean, who doesn’t? Crazy people that’s for sure. Anyway, a new location went in about 15 minutes away from my house, so I am totally pumped. And this location (in Hingham) is amazing—it’s bigger, better, and not nearly as crowded as other nearby locations. I am in love.
I went to the new Trader Joe’s earlier this week, and I definitely went overboard (my shopping cart was ridiculous), but I easily bought enough food to last us a good three weeks (at least), so I won’tneed to go grocery shopping for awhile!
Sushi (well, California rolls)
I’ve had a major craving for sushi lately, specifically Volcano rolls from Owl Station, but I’ll take what I can get. Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s makes some pretty decent California rolls, so I have been chowing down on them lately. Sushi, get it my (baby) belly!
(Yes, the caps were intentional!)
Anyone else watching The Bachelor? I am totally obsessed with Juan Pablo. I loved him back when he was on The Bachelorette, and I could not understand why Desiree wasn’t more into him. He’s handsome and such a goofball, which is totally my type. He actually reminds me a lot of Mal.
Speaking of my husband, if things don’t work out with him, I’m going after Juan Pablo.
I know, where have I been, right? You guys know I’m always a little behind the fashion trends!
Anyway, I’m really loving infinity scarfs, especially this gray chevron one pictured below + these other favorites: Black and White Striped Infinity Scarf (versatile), Popcorn Knit Infinity Scarf in Petrolio Blue (cozy), and Animal Circle Infinity Scarf (fun).
My love for Kiehl’s products all started with this Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream with SPF 30! Since then, I’ve continued to buy all sorts of products from the brand. Yes, they’re a little expensive, but they are truly worth every penny. I actually stopped buying Kiehl’s products for a little awhile because I didn’t want to spend the money, but, overtime, I ended up coming back to them. Basically, once I tried Kiehl’s, I realized just how amazing their products are and then there was no turning back. And I could finally stop messing around with all of those other beauty products out there.
Other favorites from Kiehl’s: Super Multi-Corrective Cream (awesome for travel), Pineapple Papaya Facial Scrub (leaves skin so soft), Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution (just started using this – so far, so good!), Grapefruit Exfoliating Body Scrub, and Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate.
Side note: CVS sent me a couple of products from the Lumene line that they carry in-store, and I love their Lumene Complete Rewind Recovery Day Cream with SPF 15, which is pretty affordable. I’ve been using it on days when I don’t spend too much time outside, so I can extend the life of my Kiehl’s stuff.
Some friends bought Mal and me this book for Christmas, and it is so funny. If you own a pug, you know how weird/stubborn/particular they are, so you would definitely get a kick out of this book.
Mal and I read this book together and we could not get over how accurate it was about so many of Murphy’s “unique” characteristics, which we now realize are just (weird) pug things.
And this was exemplified by one of our walks earlier this week:
CVS Prenatal Gummy Vitamins
My friends from CVS sent me some of their Prenatal Gummy Vitamins with DHA and Folic Acid, and I have been eating a few of them almost everyday. I am still craving citrus big time, so these are perfect for satisfying my craving while getting a healthy dose of vitamins at the same time.
CrossFit & Pregnancy: The Myths & The Facts
Becky tweeted me this article about CrossFit and pregnancy from Box Life magazine, and I really enjoyed reading it. If you have questions about CrossFit and pregnancy—what’s safe and what’s not—definitely check out this article!
