Friday Favorites 3/25/16

March 25, 2016 in Friday Favorites / Yummy Eats

Hi guys and happy Friday! Hope you all had a good week-the weekend is finally here!

Linking up with Heather this week to share some of my favorite things lately!




Once in a while by Timeflies

Roses by The Chainsmokers, ROZES

Hands to myself by Selena Gomez

What I got by Sublime



Vega protein waffles with banana, earth balance coconut crunchy peanut butter, and cinnamon+a cup of coffee to make for the absolute perfect breakfast! 


Halo top ice cream! I tried this for the first time this week and loved it! Def recommend. 


These cookies!! Chocolate chip is definitely my fav flavor ever (even though there really isn’t a bad flavor lol). You can buy Lenny & Larry’s cookies from my link here!! 



“Forgive yourself for the years mental illness took away from you.”


“Whatever you do, no matter how hard it gets, no matter how weak you may feel, never stop growing.”


“Plant your own garden & decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.” LOVE THIS <3

Steam rooms!!

Anyone else love saunas or steam rooms?! I always feel so much more relaxed and refreshed after.


Selfie in the steam room hehe, also Instagrammed this with a little piece I wrote: 

//I strive to find an inner peace with myself. A place of contentment where I don’t let what others say or do affect me. A state of happiness where I don’t let the mistakes I make define me; where I instead choose to look at them as an opportunity for growth, where I am not so hard on myself for these mistakes as I am only human. I strive to be at peace with myself, to be at peace with others. To not let jealousy engulf me, to be truly happy for the successes of others. I strive to accomplish my goals, to never stop working hard and letting a setback bring me down. This inner peace; this peace with myself, my body, my mind, and others is something I will continually strive for. The goals I have, the person I aspire to be; it all excites me. I am strong and I don’t need the approval of anyone else; I don’t need to rely on anyone else for I am a strong woman and I continue to see my strength daily, and I will continue to watch it grow.//

This adorable decoration my mom got me for my room. 


Follow your bliss… my mom is my biggest fan with everything: my Blissful Lyss blog, school, and everything in between. So thankful to have someone as amazing and supportive like her in my life!! My best friend <3  It has been so amazing to be home and get to spend some quality time with both my mom and dad- love them to pieces and am so SO grateful!

Now tell me: 

Your favorite song as of late? (I’m always on the hunt for new music)

Waffle or pancake person? (I’m more of a waffle gal!)

Hope you all have a great Friday!

Sending my love as always.

      They never have it at my local whole foods; I actually found it at a little organic store! Waffles are the best, especially homemade ones. Your waffles on your post today looked amazing!!

    I’ve never been in a steam room! My gym doesn’t have one, but I have gotten a steam facial over a pot of boiling water before X-) My favorite song as of late is “Me, Myself and I”. Not sure who sings that song, but my sister and I love it. Have a great weekend!

    Love the quotes you featured in this post! Lately I’ve been loving the song “Snapback” by Old Dominion. I’m not a big country music fan, but this song is pretty catchy 🙂
