January 8, 2016 in Friday Favorites

Hey guys and happy Friday! First week of the new year is done- so crazy!

Anyways, going to be sharing some of my favorite things lately. Still have about a little over a week on break before heading back to school for my second semester so I will be fully enjoying that and soaking up all the relaxation time I can get before things get super busy again.

Thank you Heather for allowing me to share my Friday favorites this week and for the link up!



I recently downloaded Spotify (I’m late to the party on this one) and have been loving it. I’ve found so many awesome songs through this app.

Also, my friend has gotten me into Hozier lately which I have been loving. Garden of Eden, Work Song, Foreigner’s God, and Someone New are my current Hozier jams.

Been loving the songs Mess is Mine and Fire and the Flood by Vance Joy too!

TV Shows:

I started the show Chasing Life over break and have been loving it (even though the plot-line is very sad).

I also started How to Get away with Murder last week as my friends have been itching me to start it, and it is SO good. Definitely going to be binge-watching that next.


I saw the movie Sister with my best friend this week. It was very funny and a good movie, but I didn’t think it was great. Next movie I really want to see is Concussion with Will Smith!


Trader Joes Flax n Chia Crunchy PB


This stuff is SO good, 10/10 recommend and it’s super cheap. Been obsessed with it lately.

Also been loving hard boiled eggs, avocados, and lentil veggie soup! (all super random, IK)


Recently I have been riding the bike more at the gym, and really enjoy doing that. I also love (and have always loved) the stair master and running! Obviously love yoga too, as that is forever my favorite form of exercise.

Saunas– I took a sauna yesterday and felt amazing after. I love hot yoga and should have thought about taking saunas or getting in the steam room sooner- will definitely be doing more of this while I’m home!

Ivory Ella shirt– I got this for my birthday but have been wearing it more over break- these shirts are so comfy AND all the prophets go toward saving the elephants, so a win-win 🙂

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 presetThe Ivory Ella I have!

Naps– who doesn’t love naps?!? Been fully taking advantage of them this break, and will continue to as I think I’m coming down with a cold.

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

Now tell me:

Favorite song lately? Favorite TV show? Do you own an Ivory Ella shirt?

Have a great weekend guys!

    My favorite song right now is “What Do You Mean” by the Bieber. I’m not ashamed, I love the song and I love looking at him (his character however, not so much). I watched How To Get Away With Murder and it was AMAING! Hard to believe the main character was Dean from Harry Potter…After I finished that I started Orange is the new Black and that is definitely worth a watch. It takes a second to get over some of the racy scenes, but very informative about the prison system. Have a great weekend! 🙂
