Friday Round Up

Happy Friday indeed friends! This has been quite the week - I'm not sure if it's the gloomy weather, but I've sort of been in a funk all week and I'm ready for the weekend! I've got so many events lined up for both work and my personal life that it's all sort of starting to mesh together - but as they say, it's a nice problem to have! Here are some of my favorites from the week!

Favorite Smoothie Recipe

I've been on a smoothie kick the last few weeks and Nichole from Casa de Crews shared this delicious PB&J protein smoothie and I can't wait to make it! All the more reason to get that Nutri Bullet from my wishlist this week

Favorite Song 

This song has been in every spin class I've taken recently and it's so catchy! I'm not sure what Sean Paul has been doing since 2006, but he's back with Sia and I still can't understand a word he says...thankfully this is a lyric video!

Favorite Easy DIY

Every other week I feel like I'm trying to come up with ways to help myself stay organized - when I found this DIY for the entire year at a more macro level, I immediately tried to figure out how to make it work for me! As she says in the post - this isn't about the little tasks we have daily, it's about the bigger picture and seeing the whole year - vacations, events, weddings!

Favorite New Bronzer

I was watching a few YouTube videos this week and saw about 4 people mention Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer - so naturally I picked it up! I was down to the bottom of my Elf one and I'm excited to get back to Physicians Formula - I really like their stuff and I'll let you now how this one works!

  1. That smoothie looks so yummy! And Sean Paul- I don't understand a word either! Oh well, it's a catchy song.
    That planner looks cool... I've been thinking that I need to start organising myself more and that looks perfect to be able to see everything you've accomplished and are planning to do all on one page :)

  3. I am definitely ready for the weekend, too! Love the idea of a full year overview - that would be nice and easy to reference for the big events. Happy Friday!

  8. I thought the same thing when I heard that Sean Paul song, where has this guy been?! Maybe it's the facet I haven't had a drink in 39 weeks but I'm drooling over that paloma (at 6 AM...). UGH it sounds so delicious!

  14. I only look at my planner on a monthly view because I'm the same way about knowing the macro overview of my month. If I try to do it by day I just get overwhelmed. I absolutely adore the Mompreneurs round up. I learned about some new companies. Hope you have a great weekend doll!

  15. I love that song!! It's so good :) I've never used that bronzer before, maybe I will try it out but I've been on this Younique fix. Have a great weekend!!!

  16. A year at a glance planner looks like a good idea! Seeing the big picture sometimes is necessary instead of looking at all the appointments and daily things. Have a great weekend!

  17. Sia is so awesome. I love that whole album. Happy weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Checking out the smoothie recipe. I may have finally found a replacement blender!! Also how cute is that glass it's being held in?

    I need to check out that Sia video, love Sia, but you're right, Sean Paul, last time I heard him was on Baby Boy.

  21. Ooo, that definitely would be a good spin song. I generally go to RMO (Les Mills) and they don't switch up the music much. Happy Friday!

  22. That bronzer is so pretty! Sorry it's been such a rough week, but yay for the weekend and for events helping it go by fast. Sending some much needed warmth and sunshine up your way friend <3

  23. I thought that said "Butt Bronzer" I was like WHAT? haha... I do love a good bronzer though - perfect for the summer glow.

  24. The weather here has been so blah lately, too - definitely over the rain and cloudiness! Love that bronzer, off to check it out now. Hope you have a great weekend!

  25. I was on a huge smoothie kick not long ago...I need to start back up again! I've heard so much on that bronzer, but haven't been able to find it anywhere. Hitting up a few drugstores after work today. Hope you have a great weekend, Biana!

  26. Oh man. I am totally with you. This weather is killing me. We are getting like two nice days in NYC and then back to rain (including this whole weekend and the next one). I cant deal. I feel like I live in Seattle. Anyway, thank you for sharing that Peanut Butter and Jelly smoothie! That sounds amazing! Listen to you talking about every spin class. Get it girl! I have been so lazy working out. I need to get on it.

  29. That smoothie sounds SO delicious! I love peanut butter and jelly, so this looks like a recipe I need to try, too! I've really been loving the new packaging that Physician's Formula has been rolling out! I have a couple of their products, I'll have to look into their bronzers because the one I bought recently isn't a good enough match. Thanks for sharing your favorite links, as always, I read the one on measuring success and it was a great read! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, beauty!

  34. Be able to see the entire year at a glance is SUCH a great idea! It's nice to have an overview of important events all in one place because that makes it so much easier to spread stuff out more evenly if possible. We always end up with several months with entirely too much crammed in!

    ReplyDelete
  35. It has been gloomy here all week too. I want sunshine, time outside and that smoothie you posted!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Definitely the weather—I've been in a funk all week too and so has pretty much everyone it seems!
    That macro calendar/agenda is so simple but so brilliant—going to make one right now.
    Hope your weekend is bright and beautiful!

  39. That is SUCH a good DIY idea because sometimes my husband and I say yes to 3 things in advance and next thing you know we're constantly gone and like "we just want to relax". Hope you enjoy your weekend Biana!

  41. Seriously where has Sean Paul been? lol That's a great song to listen to while working out (I can understand what he's saying just from knowing Caribbean slang)... Have fun at all your events this weekend and I hope they brighten your day to make up for the gloomy week!

  45. I like that yearly outline idea.. I definitely tend to focus on smaller things much more than I should, and then don't give enough attention to the more important goals/events I have!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love Physician's Formula bronzers! I just finished one up and they're so great for the price! This weather has definitely had an effect on the week... send us sun! And, big YES to that song. It's so catchy and good! Hope you have a great weekend! Xo

  48. that butter bronzer is the best thing in the world. I love it. Sometimes I use it as eyeshadow just so I can smell it longer. It's true, I really do.
