Friday Favorites Round Up

Happy Friday friends! Another work week bites the dust and while we have nothing planned for the weekend I feel like my must do list just keeps growing! Here are some favorites I hope will help with tackling it...linking up with Amanda

Favorite Recipe

If something has "easy" in the description, it's a surefire way for me to actually try making it. Enter in these Easy Chicken Parmesan wraps

Favorite Workout

I signed up to run my first race in over two years this week...that means I have a few months to go from no lung capacity outside to actually being able to run!! Couch to 5K here I come! 

Favorite To Do This Weekend

With very limited weekend plans I seriously need to clean my closet outI have the hardest time getting rid of clothes that I haven't worn in years or that I don't even like anymore..a few hoarding issues over here! Getting it done this weekend! 

Favorite New Beauty Product

My cousin's wife, Kathy, works for Kiehl's and brought over so many fun goodies for Gary and I to try. Most of their stuff is unisex! I've been using this creamy eye treatment with avocado for the last 5 days and can already see a difference in my under eye area. It's not meant to help dark circles, but I've felt that because it hydrates the skin, it's minimized their appearance and I use it under my eyes in the morning before putting my concealer on so that there isn't any creasing! I'm a fan!

  1. I have the worst problems with dark circles and I have never found anything that works! So, you noticed a difference in 5 days?? I am thinking this sounds like its worth trying for sure! I am totally cleaning out the office closet and our closet this weekend too. It has to be done! Happy Friday girl!

  2. Oh girl I see a closet clean in my future too. I am having a huge garage sale in May so I'm thinking a Target run for more bins and price labels to price and pack as I go. I need a good eye treatment, might have to give that a try. Have a fabulous Friday and I hope the weekend is productive and fun too gorgeous friend!!

  3. So exciting about your race you signed up for!!! I used to run races all the time before grad school--mine were mostly 5k races, but I've also run an 8k and half marathon. I'm hoping to get back into running now that the weather is warming up and it's getting darker later. Happy Friday!

  4. Good luck with your training! My mom wanted all of us to do a 5K, but my stomach just turns at the thought. Hope the cleaning of the closet goes well - it can be SO hard to get rid of things - I always worry that even though I don't wear something now, it might be perfect in a year or two.

  5. Chicken parm wraps?? Where do I sign up??? That would have been better than the lunch I had the other day lol. Definitely want to look into that eye cream--it sounds great!
    Have a good weekend friend!

  7. TGIF! I am so glad that the weekend is here! I have been using the app "Running" to start my training over again and I love it! You can try it for free for one week, but I wish I had purchased the discounted 3 months instead while I had the chance. It's made running fun again! Have a great weekend!

  8. Oh my gosh! Does that chicken parm wrap look amazing or what?! I'm working on my grocery list for next week and I think I need to make that! The couch to 5k is great. I have run so many races in all different distances over the years and I really like this one. I'm trying to get my husband to do this plan and run a race with me! Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. Yay for a race! I use the C25K app when I train. It tells me when to run and when to walk, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yum, those wraps sound delish! I, too, have a super hard time cleaning out my closet, but I always feel AMAZING once it's done. I always second-guess myself on every item and say, "Well, I could wear this again to ______?" Such a hard task! Enjoy your weekend!

  14. Cleaning out the closet always feels SO good afterwards! But also always makes me feel guilty when I realize how much clothes I have! I also LOVE that outfit from Suburban Faux Pas! Happy Friday girl!

  17. I used the couch to 5k app when I first started running a few years ago and LOVED it! You just turn it on and it cues you when to run and walk. It's great!

  18. The chicken wraps look awesome, I love making stuff like that especially for the kids on the go food. I did Couch25k a few years back, it works!!!

  23. Congrats on the 5K girl! I only run to the bus and the train lol. Chris is an avid runner though. :-) That outfit is super cute and would look great on you too. That eye cream sounds lovely too. I cleaned out my closet a month ago and it was seriously the best thing ever. Now my closet is a lot more organized and things are a lot easier to find. Happy Friday to you and I hope that you have a fab weekend!! :-)

  24. Those are such great tips for millennials! Hope you have a great weekend!

  25. Great list! The first one made me laugh, because before googling any recipe I always type in "easy"...then whatever recipe I am looking for. I wonder if anyone ever googles difficult recipes! Ha!!
    I have been wanting to try Couch to 5k. Maybe now that the weather is getting nicer I can make it a goal. Have a great weekend!

  26. That wrap looks yummy. Good luck getting back into running. I love running-my best advice as far as lung capacity goes is to start at a really slow pace so you don't "get behind" on your breathing. I used to start off too fast and it did not work :) May revisit the Kiehl's eye cream. I used it a long time ago and I think I may be in need of something more drastic but this may be good for the morning and under makeup! Thanks! xo, Traci

    ReplyDelete
  27. Those chicken parm wraps look yummy! I used to love Kiehl's stuff too, but haven't tried much recently. I do need a different under eye cream though. Hope you have a good weekend and good luck with the closet clean out! xo

  28. I'll be doing a similar closet clean out, plus more this weekend. Good luck with your closet, I'll text you pictures of mine, haha. Happy Friday, beautiful!

  29. Those wraps look so good...I cleaned out my closet a few months ago and it felt great..I got rid of SO much. That eye cream sounds heavenly too! Enjoy your weekend girl!

  30. i love that cream--i've tried to make a dupe for it and nothing stacks up. it's so good. i am spring cleaning this weekend, so that post is all for me!! have a great weekend, biana!

    ReplyDelete
  31. that is the best closet tips list. i use that rule about "if i haven't worn it in at least a year" i mean that's just being generous haha. i tried on a bunch of stuff last week and filled my car with stuff. that eye cream looks awesome - i'm a sucker for a good face/eye cream! have a great weekend friend!

  35. Yum those chicken parm wraps look so good. Also, I meant to email you buy I will just leave my note here - we're in Boston this weekend, starting tonight, but it looks like we will be spending time with the bride's family helping with the family, kiddos, so our schedule is pretty busy. I'd love to meet up, but not sure how much time we have this trip. :( If not now, then definitely this summer!!

  42. I signed up for a 5K a couple of weeks ago, and I've actually been running a similar schedule to the Couch to 5K and I didn't even know it! Good luck with your race training! I definitely need to clean out my closet soon, and those are some great questions to ask to make sure I don't keep a ton of unnecessary items!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I fully intended to clean out my closet this week and it haven't happened yet. Maybe I'll make it a goal for next weekend! lol Happy Friday! :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. That chicken wrap looks soooo good! I've been having a nightmare trying to run again and have a 5k in a month-- I was trying to just do it on my own, but after a disaster of a run yesterday I'm going to start c25k again too! I'm going through my clothes/closet today too- I have some stuff that is so old and needs to be replaced... or donated so there is room for new things, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I swear I clean out my closet and I blink and it's a mess again. Definitely needs to be done but I think I'm going to wait until I do the spring clothes transition - so hopefully soon! Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Chicken parm wraps?! Yum! And a good closet clean out is always a good thing. I feel so light after I've gotten rid of things.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Some great links this weekend and that neon quote for Friday is a great pop of 'pick me up'. All those questions to tackle your closet while cleaning it are definitely the right ones. I bookmarked this post for sure.

    Enjoy St. Paddy's weekend B!

  50. I have been cleaning out my closet! I just look at stuff and take it off the hanger. Did that with some tees last night. Still looks 100% full though... whew

  51. My brother in law had a ton of success with the couch to 5k program! In fact, he got so motivated he's super buff now, haha! It's one of my goals to clean out our "catch all" linen closet this week... I think my own closet would be far more fun though.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Those chicken parmesan wraps look AMAZING! I'm working on cleaning out my closet too and am trying to have zero mercy! It's hard to get rid of stuff but I love how a cleaned out closet just full of clothes I actually like and want to wear feels!

  53. I should do that! Sign up for a race and then do the couch to 5k. That sounds like an amazing way to motivate yourself. Great idea, Biana! I am totally out of shape and need to start working out. I belong to and pay for a gym that I dont attend. I just hate it. Bleh. I know if I start going I will get into it but I have zero motivation right now to.

    ReplyDelete
  54. That 'clean out your closet' list is definitely necessary! Gosh it's so hard getting rid of stuff. I still have tops from college days! lol

  55. The couch to 5k programs are so great!! :) I love the links you posted today, millennial business and women CEOs- heck yes!! Enjoy your weekend!

  57. I just edited my closet the other day and I feel so much lighter now that I've gotten rid of those items I never really wear anymore! I love this set of questions to ask! And I'm loving that blazer from Suburban Fauxpas! So chic and I love how she styled it with a classic silk scarf. Have a great weekend Biana :)

  60. I know I always tell you this, but I really LOVE your posts, Biana! They're always so helpful. Tomorrow I'm heading to Target to get an Erin Condren planner because after you shared how you use a planner to keep and stay organized, I've decided it's time, haha. I've been reading a lot of great reviews about Kiehl's, I think I may just need to look into them because everyone seems to really love their products. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I am a hoarder when it comes to clothes big time and have the hardest time letting things go even though I know deep down I wont be wearing it again. If we dont love it lets get rid of it!!! (To make room for new pretties hehehehehe.) I did the C25k Last year and loved the program! Never did a race though haha so good job on signing up for one! Hope you have a great weekend!

  95. Hello people on this forum my name is Lilian.i want to use this opportunity to thank Queen Madu the a Great spell caster who helped me get my husband back from an evil woman who used a magical powers to take my man from me and make him to hate me and the kids.I call her Mama because she really saved my happiness and my home and she took me as her own daughter i will forever be grateful mama.

    I and my man RAYA ADAMS were happy together until one day he came back from work, i gave him dinner and he said i should forget it that he is not hungry. I Suspected something was wrong and i ask him what is it and he said he do not love me anymore and said he wants a divorce, i cried and begged him but nothing worked out. About a week later he said he want to travel, he packed his bags and move out of the house. I later discovered that he is with this other woman named Alice.

    i called him no answer, i wrote him and no reply. His family also supported him to get rid of me because this other lady used black magic on my husband and his family. They pushed me and my kids out of the house i was frustrated and devastated at this point no place to go only my mothers house, so i was praying and seeking help to restore my marriage until one day on the internet i storm into a story about this great spell caster, about how she helped a lady get her man back i also so other testimonies from other people about same woman. I decided to contact this great woman via her email: queenmadu211@gmail.com I explained my problem to her, she cried in pity for me and my kids and said to me "i will help you and three days your man will come for you". She told me that Adams was under a strong magical spell (Black Magic) She gave me some instructions which i followed and she performed some sacrifices according to him. Well to cut my long story short, this great woman Queen Madu was able to break the spell and get my husband back in 2 days and also the woman that did the spell came to confess her evil deeds and beg for forgiveness to me and my in-laws.

    This woman is great and powerful indeed. I will forever be grateful to You MAMA and i will continue to speak of your good works in my life.

    If there is any of you out there that has similar problems or any other problem you should contact this woman for your own happiness. Her email is: queenmadu211@gmail.com

    Thank you for your time.
