Friday Favorites

Happy Friday friends! First and foremost, sending so many prayers to those of you in my home state of Florida that will be dealing with the hurricane this weekend! Hoping everyone stays safe & prepared. I feel like short work weeks are sometimes even more jam packed because you have a full day of stuff to catch up on! Looking forward to our first wedding of September tomorrow! Here are a few favorites from the week!

Favorite Movie

Well I can't really say for sure if it's good, but I do have plans after work to see Home Again and somehow bribed Gary to see it with me! There are few Reese Witherspoon movies that I don't like & the fact that the director's mom is Nancy Meyer makes me think it's going to be pretty in line with what we're used to from movies like It's Complicated, The Intern & The Holiday - three of my favorites! Side note, the director Hallie is 30 years old - you go girl! 

Favorite Protein

I was really intrigued when I started to see people I follow on Instagram sharing their experiences with Vital Proteins. The pr team reached out to me a month or so ago to try out their collagen protein that helps with hair, skin & nails as well as promoting joint help and helping with digestions. I went into trying them with very low expectations, but here we are a month later and I have to say I'm hooked. The powder I have is flavorless and dissolves quickly and easily with any liquid. I've mixed in with plain water, my coffee and even a Starbucks refresher! Where I've seen the most noticeable difference is with my nails! I have always had very brittle nails, but they are now stronger and growing so much faster than ever before! When I say that I have baby nails, I really do and nothing has ever worked to get them to grow. I've also seen a bit of improvement in my skin! Overall, I'm a believer and so happy that I have so much of the product left! 

Favorite New Kitchen Gadget

Gary is on a kick to clean up our "junk" drawer in the kitchen and one of the things that causes the most chaos in that drawer are all the different measuring contraptions I have! He found this great measuring spoon that basically got rid of everything else! It's adjustable and can be used from both ends with larger measurements on one end and smaller ones on the other! I absolutely love it and for under $7 it's totally worth it to clean up the drawer! 

Favorite Song 

This French Montana "Unforgettable" song is a few months old, but anytime it comes on my Spotify I immediately feel the need to start dancing, which is sort of embarrassing since most of the time I'm on the train! The video really doesn't have anything to do with the song, which is why I added the lyric video instead! 
That's all friends! Again, praying for everyone in Florida to stay safe & hoping this storm decided to turn away! 
Vital Proteins sent me a few of their protein products for testing purposes. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

  17. I don't take that brand of collagen, but I LOVE the one I do. Seriously, seen such a difference in my skin and nails. ANNNNNNND, it's soooooo good for gut/micro biome health, great job getting on the wagon.

    PRAYERS and love for FLORIDA!

That measuring spoon is genius! Hope you have an amazing weekend!

  24. I pretty much just love Reese and would watch her in anything! Hope your family will be safe. Praying for all those in Irma's path.

  25. I still am shocked every time I see Reese in pics with her daughter. TWINS!
    I had a similar measuring spoon like that - I had a hard time with it though with oil. It would get under & I'd have to take that 'stopper' off & did it so much, it finally snapped & didnt work anymore. So just be aware. I think mine was Pampered Chef though.

  26. I am into cooking so much and I think your favorite kitchen gadget will be of very good use if I buy it. :D

  30. I love that song too! I feel like I first heard it at yoga last week and was hooked! I want to see that movie too. I have been doing collagen too and am seeing a nail difference too! And I feel like my face is less dry. Have a great weekend!

  31. I want to see that movie so bad, too! You know if Nancy Meyers is affiliated then it will be good! What Women Want is one of my favorite movies ever and she directed that! And also The Holiday!! OH SO GOOD.

    And I've been loving that Unforgettable, too!! It is SO GOOD.

  34. Yessss to that measuring spoon! We have several similar ones from The Pampered Chef that we were gifted almost seven (!) years ago, and we reach for them first every time we need a measuring spoon. Hope a ton of people buy the one you linked to because it's SUCH good kitchen tool! Have fun at the wedding tomorrow! <3

  39. I love any movie with Reese Witherspoon in it ! I haven't seen her movie yet but I've heard so many wonderful reviews ! Kitchen gadgets are always so fun and I have something similar to that yours. Pampered chef makes an awesome measuring spoon very similar not not in that awesome color. Happy Weekend Biana. Praying for the entire state of Florida. I spent many summers on Long Boat Key ~
