TGIF!! I am extra excited it’s Friday because I have a 5 day weekend AND this Saturday is my cousin Daniel’s wedding to his partner Alan. I am so happy that they are tying the knot and I am sure the wedding is going to be AMAZING! I have to decide what I am going to wear. My mom brought me about 6 dresses to try on so hopefully one of those work. We don’t get to get all decked out too often. Have a great weekend everyone! Now who is ready for some favorites?
Favorite Shrimp Recipe: I have made this Penne a la Betsy dish a few times and oh my goodness it is divine! Bonus: you need to use a little bit of white wine so then you obviously need to drink the rest of the bottle so it doesn’t go to waste.
Favorite Cause: I first saw these pants on Shark Tank a couple weeks ago and then they popped up on my Facebook feed the other day. They are called Elephant Pants and 10% of sales are donated to the IEF to programs that help save the elephants. The pants are made in Chiang Mai, Thailand by a talented team that’s paid 2x the minimum wage, provided with healthcare, and given a green environment to work in. A++ Don’t they just look so comfy?!
Favorite Healthy Gadget: If you are anything like me you don’t drink enough water throughout the day. I always tell myself to drink more and I never do. This Ulla gadget attaches to any water bottle and it blinks when you forget to hydrate for too long. By following Ulla’s optimal hydration cycle, your drinking habits will improve dramatically.
Favorite Hair Inspiration: My hair is the longest it has ever been right now and I have been contemplating what to do with it. Sometimes I just want to chop it all off and other times I don’t. I have had this picture in my phone for months now so I think it is time to pull the trigger and get my hair did. What do you think?
Favorite Splurge: I first saw The Coolest Cooler on Kickstarter I instantly thought it was amazing. It has a built in blender, bluetooth speaker, waterproof USB charger, built in plates/cutting board/ceramic knife, and a bottle opener/corkscrew. They had me at blender. This is perfect for a day by the pool or beach. It retails for $399 hence it being my favorite splurge.
Favorite Bathroom Must Have: For the 3 men who read my blog time to cover your eyes because I am about to let the cat out of the bag….girls go number 2. My mom introduced me to Poo-Pourri and since then I don’t leave the house without having it in my bag. You spritz 3-5 sprays into the toilet bowl on the water’s surface before you go. The natural essential oils create a barrier—trapping odor under the surface. There are a ton of scents and a lot of them have some pretty funny names. Every bathroom in the world should have this spray!
Favorite Adult Beverage: Every single time I go to Outback I get a Wallaby Darned, who am I kidding I get at least two. It is made with vodka, champagne, & peach schnapps. Yumminess, right Jen?
Favorite Fashion: Oscars!! The most important award show of the season and also the longest. I am one of those people who have to watch the whole thing live because I don’t want it spoiled the next day so I was up waaaaaay past my bedtime. That ending made it worth it though!
