January 22, 2016 in Friday Favorites

Hi guys and happy Friday! Made it through my first week of the new semester (even though it was only a 4 day week hehe) but regardless am still excited for the weekend! Who doesn’t love the weekends though?! πŸ™‚

Anyways, going to be sharing some of my favorite things from this past week. Thank you Heather for the link up!

TV Shows

Haven’t watched any Netflix this week. Sometimes I just don’t have the time between trying to be social, the blog, reading others blogs, and wanting to spend time on Tumblr (clearly I’m more of an Internet gal lol) I didn’t watch any Netflix this week! But I have been enjoying my nights by unwinding with some blog reading, my favorite Pandora station, and my fluffy blanket. πŸ™‚ Love my relaxation time at night.



Chicken noodle soup is perfection, especially when it’s freezing out. Also these little pretzel-hummus cups are the bomb too.


Apple cinnamon oats with banana and skippy natural pb for a perfect dorm room breakfast. Love grown foods oats are amazing as well as their other products. Such a fan of their food!


Apple and Luna bar for a snack. Bars are the perfect snack for any time. And apples are just amazing-that’s a given.

Also think I ate some bad sushi Thursday as (TMI) I had a horrible stomach ache and very bad diarrhea. No fun at all lemme tell ya.

Reuniting with friends

Got to catch up with my friends from school this week on our winter breaks which was awesome. It has been great to spend time with them again and have them back in my life!


Me being weird (per usual) with my bff Gabby.


Avery and I both like making weird faces for snap chat so we are basically best friends.


Katie+Shan+Me braving 20 degree temps. We survived!!


Got to catch up with my beautiful bff Jen <3

New courses! 

This semester I am taking social psychology, Spanish, literature, abnormal psychology, and philosophy! I really like my courses this semester, especially all the psych classes. πŸ™‚ Very excited for abnormal psych and to learn more about mental disorders and all of that jazz, as I want to go into that field when I’m older. My professor for that class is so kind too and funny which makes it 10x better.


Fav quotes from this week. (I am such a quote person)


Amen to that!


NEVER determine how you feel about yourself based on the food you ate. There is no such thing as “good” food or “bad” food. Stop putting labels on food. Food is just food- the food you eat or don’t eat does NOT determine whether you are good or bad. Please remember this.


Pineapple’s always know the answers. They know what’s up. πŸ™‚

Current Laptop Background 


I adore this, I adore Will Ferrel. He really just speaks to me on this in so many levels. “Eat whatever you want, and if someone tries to lecture you about your weight, eat them too.” Beautiful <3 And so true! Hate when people tell others how/what to eat.

That’s it for this weeks favorites, but I would love to hear yours!

Now tell me:

What do you like to top your oatmeal with? 

Would you describe yourself as more of an Internet or TV person? 

Any fun plans this weekend? 

Have a great weekend guys!


Lyss <3

    Lovely post Lyss. What a fun week you had πŸ™‚
    I eat my oats with various things, sometimes just plain, a dash of honey, fresh fruits or a combo of everything.
    Definitely more of an internet person these days, since I started blogging.
    No major plans for the weekend as yet πŸ™‚
    I hope you have an awesome fun time this weekend. x

    The past few times I’ve had stomach issues from food it’s been sushi!! It’s risky business, let me tell ya (but I still risk it hehe). So glad you’re having fun back with friends! Have a good weekend love <3

      It is risky business! But I love it so much, so I might have to take the risk too hehe. Thank you so much Hayley! You too <3

    goal for tomorrow: be a pineapple

      YES, pineapples know it all man

  • Reply Ellie January 23, 2016 at 1:35 am

    I like to top my oatmeal with raisins and peanut butter or nuts. Long live the raisin! I am definitely more of an Internet person, but honestly I don’t watch TV because I read a lot. I’ve got some good ones going right now that are demanding my eyes. I will get back to TV eventually…but not yet =P
    This weekend I will be the pineapple!

    • Reply Alyssa January 23, 2016 at 2:06 pm

      I love my oatmeal with nuts too! Sounds like a great combo of toppings. I want to get into reading more, need to find some good books! Haha yes aim to be that pineapple, I love that quote so much πŸ™‚ have a great weekend <3

  • Reply Petra @ CrumblesAndKale January 23, 2016 at 11:57 am

    I loved the “be a pineapple”, so sweet but so true πŸ™‚
    I always top my oatmeal with almond butter, salty almonds and some kind of fruit or berry.
    I don’t watch that much on TV but spend way to much time on Internet and this weekend I’m taking my best friend for a movies, do you have any plans? πŸ™‚

    • Reply Alyssa January 23, 2016 at 2:08 pm

      It was such a cute quote πŸ™‚ those sound like really yummy toppings! Love almond butter so much <3 that sounds like a fun weekend! What movie are you seeing? This Friday I went to a party with friends, today I'll probably just relax, workout, and tomorrow will be a homework day. Hope you have a great weekend Petra! <3

    Lol I love that Will Ferrel meme! He’s one of my favorites. I eat an apple every single day, I just can’t get enough of them. I think I’m definitely more of an internet person, I get bored with TV but I could read blogs and scroll through Pinterest for hours!

    • Reply Alyssa January 23, 2016 at 5:29 pm

      I love Will Ferrel- he is hilarious! Same here, I eat an apple every single day (and a banana haha). I’m the same way with TV- I can’t focus on a show for too long but I could spend hours on blogs or Pinterest/Tumblr.

  • Reply Melanie January 23, 2016 at 9:24 pm

    Sounds like you have some great classes this semester! I took Abnormal Psych last year and it has been my favorite class in my program so far- so interesting! I need to try more of the Love Grown products. I’ve had the peach almond vanilla oats and really like them πŸ™‚ Have you tried any of the cold cereals? I’ve been wanting to buy them.

    • Reply Alyssa January 24, 2016 at 3:30 pm

      I am so excited for abnormal psych πŸ™‚ I love the peach almond vanilla oats too! The cold cereals are great. Love the mighty flakes and the chocolate o’s, definitely recommend them πŸ™‚
