The Friday 5

Hi, guys!

Happy FRIYAY to you! I hope you had a lovely Valentine’s Day yesterday. I actually documented ours via old school blogging, so I plan to share a recap here soon. I’m really trying to get my ish together as far as CNC Macro Plans + Coaching goes (the building and growing phase of a new biz is no joke!), so, hopefully, I’ll have more time to devote to “day in the life-style” blogging again. Speaking of which, I’m hosting a FREE Macro Bootcamp at the end of the month, and we’ll have an April group for the “Macro the Masters Challenge,” so keep a look out for details in the coming weeks!

Since it’s Friday and all, it’s time for another edition of The Friday 5, where I pick my top 5 favorites from the week. I hope you enjoy this week’s round-up! 🙂

OWYN vegan plant-based protein powder – I’ve received a ton of questions about the new protein powder that I’m using in my iced coffee every morning, so I wanted to share the details here. I recently laid off my beloved SFH because I thought the whey was maybe making me breakout, and a few followers recommended OWYN, so I decided to give it a try. I’m actually on my second tub of it, so you could say I’m a fan! 🙂 It’s definitely one of the better tasting plant-based protein powders that I’ve tried. The texture is more light and fluffy as opposed to grainy like a lot of them. The vanilla flavor is great (not artificial tasting) and one serving contains 20g of plant-based protein as well as BCAAs, a superfoods greens blend, and probiotics. I love that it’s an all-in-one protein powder!

Flawless in Five I just had to share this Beautycounter deal with all of you – it’s THAT good! In fact, I might personally take advantage of it because SO MANY of my favorite products are included and you get a free make-up brush with your purchase!

Flawless in Five includes 3 safer, high-performing products:

  • Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation
  • Touchup Skin Concealer Pen
  • Color Define Brow Pencil or Brilliant Brow Gel
  • Lengthening or Volumizing Mascara
  • Satin Powder Blush
  • Lip Gloss

Guys, this bundle is 20% off AND you get a free brush ($35 value)! It’s a $222 value of products for $150! This is such a great starter set for anyone who wants to swap out their makeup for something safe. It’s time to break up with your make up! 🙂

Haze Funnel Sweatshirt – I wore this sweatshirt the other day on Instagram Stories and must have received a dozen inquires about it, so I wanted to share the details here. It’s definitely a cozy sweatshirt that I wear a lot – lounging around the house, running errands, and it’s easy enough to dress it up!

The green is actually sold out, but there are other colors available. I actually really like the light gray (pictured below)!

Speaking of awesome sweatshirts…

Todd Snyder Hoodie in Surf Green (aka Mal’s Valentine’s Day present) – Mal loves the Champion line from Todd Snyder. I actually bought him a Short Sleeve Sweatshirt for Christmas, which he’s already worn a ton. I saw this sweatshirt and knew it would look awesome on him, especially with spring and summer just around the corner. It comes in other colors too, but the teal definitely caught my eye!

Brooks Bedlam – These sneakers are everything! They’re almost too pretty to work out in, but, of course, I do – and I mainly wear them running errands, hanging out with friends, etc. They’re super comfy and supportive, but light and energizing at the same time, and I love running on the treadmill with them. The Bedlam are definitely a favorite!

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

Question of the Day

What’s your favorite plant-based protein powder?

P.S. For those of you not on Instagram (or who don’t check regularly), I added a widget to the top of the blog that shares my Stories in real time. Check it out and follow along! 🙂


  1. I recently discovered OWYN protein too (I drink the pre-made shakes), and its so good! I love the chocolate, the cold brew isn’t bad, I wasn’t a huge fan of the vanilla but I did the pre-made so I am sure the vanilla is good mixed with something else. But I love that the protein has greens in it!

  2. That sweatshirt looks great! I love the color and the style; sometimes it can be a challenge to find a sweatshirt that not only looks good but also fits well and this one looks like it does both!
