Fave 5 Friday

Hi Lovelies! Happy, happy Friday! I hope that you all had a great week and have an amazing weekend planned! Fave Fridays are back this week, so here we go!

1. Live Like a Loft Girl Campaign

Remember when I went to New York a few weeks ago? I was actually there to shoot the Live Like a Loft Girl campaign! I’m so honored to be a Loft Girl and love representing such an incredible brand! The photo shoot was so much fun but I had no idea when the campaign was coming out, so you can imagine my surprise when I saw my picture in an email this morning and on the website! If you too love LOFT, you can enter to win to the live like a Loft girl contest!

2. New Shoes from Piperlime!

After exchanging tweets with the Girl In The Pink, we both decided to take the plunge on Piperlime sale and buy the clogs on the right. For both of these pairs of shoes, my grand total was under $40!! I was a little nervous about the fit since they were both final sale items, but turns out they both fit perfectly! I can’t wait to style them very soon!

3. Jamba Juice Cranberry Chocolate Trail Mix!

Last week when I went to see the movie One Day, I wanted something to snack on. Sometimes when I see a movie, I’ll treat myself to a junior popcorn, but that night I was in the mood for something sweet. After bypassing all of the candy and determining that there were no healthy options, I spotted Jamba Juice Cranberry Chocolate Antioxidant mix! I’ve never seen it before, but it’s a mix of cranberries, cashews, chocolate cranberries, dark chocolate bits, cherries, goji berries and pistachios with no artificial flavors or preservatives. It was the perfect sweet snack with some healthy fats for filling power. I will definitely be looking for this again!

4. Whole Foods Gift Card!

I’m sure you all have seen the Whole Foods parking lot video but it cracks me up every time! After I won a Whole Foods gift card giveaway from Julie at Peanut Butter Finger’s dentist, the card has been burning a hole in my pocket purse. I’ve been saving it for when I really needed some special items and now am excited to go exploring this weekend! I’ve now added coconut flour, goji berries (after loving them in that Jamba mix) and much, much more to my list of things to buy! I love Whole Foods, but since it can turn into Whole Paycheck fairly quickly, I usually try to stick with TJs for regular grocery shopping so this will be a special treat!

5. Big Top Cupcake!

This weekend, I’m going to make my first Big Top Cupcake! My parents are hosting a family member’s going away party this weekend, so I’m making dessert… in the form of a giant cupcake! I bought the cake mix tonight (hey, I’m a busy girl and don’t have time to make it from scratch) and am debating my frosting options. Literally, looking at the cans of frosting in the aisle made me salivate, just thinking about that sweet, creamy icing. Definitely a case of something so bad, being so, so good!

Questions:

-Do you have any recent purchases to share or any items that you have your eye on?

-What are your favorite items to get from Whole Foods?

-Have you ever made a giant cupcake cake? Any tips?? What foods make you salivate just thinking about them?
