That watermelon salad. 

Salad  1 of 1 29

I may be pickling watermelon on a weekly basis from now on. I definitely recommend giving it a whirl!

NBA draft! Totally geeked out yesterday and was so excited that Aaron Gordon got Orlando and Nick Johnson is going to the Rockets! I still think college b-ball>NBA but Iโ€™m excited to watch some new teams.

June beauty goodies:

Sephora haul  1 of 1

This exfoliating face polish may be my latest favorite thing. It smells bright and fresh, and isnโ€™t the least bit harsh. Iโ€™m also loving the Argan milk (itโ€™s thicker and moisturizes a little better than the usual Argan oil) + the latest mascara love. After eyelash hack 2014, Iโ€™m sticking to regular olโ€™ mascara from now on. I also got some fresh lip balm -was wanting something with SPF- and used points for the lipstick, bronzer + the free little samples. Sephora, I heart you so.

A yoga sequence for tight hips.

Juice and green tea. The combo is still going strong ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Loving those links at the bottom and drooling over that macaroon! The watermelon salad looks good too but I want that macaroon!

  7. Argan milk- how have I not heard of that before? I must try that!!

  8. That reminds me I need to make a Sephora run this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    I need to get back into juicing. A green juice is always a great pick-me-up.

  9. I rushed home from work so I could watch the draft and refused to take calls while it was on. I guess we’re opposites because I think NBA > college ball ๐Ÿ˜‰ However, I am thinking maybe I’ll watch more college basketball just so I’m more informed about draft picks beyond the top 5. Sadly, the Celtics still have a lot of work ahead of them and I feel it will still be another few years before they make it to the playoffs and past the first round.

  10. OMG that macaroon looks amazing!!

  11. Oh man, that salad looks heavenly, and so does the macaroon! Pickled watermelon still sounds way strange though haha

  12. I need to start juicing. That looks delish.

  13. Happy dance is right!! What a long week. Salad and watermelon intrigues me for sure. Juice + tea…talk about a power house! Happy weekend!

  14. Really gotta try that salad. And now a macaroon sounds really good! Happy Friday!

  15. Doing the happy Friday dance hard over here! TGIF. I love seeing your new beauty goodies. So fun ๐Ÿ™‚ I would love to see a post on your current beauty routine! I try to use natural(ish) products most of the time and would love to see what you use!

  16. You’ve convinced me to attempt to pickle watermelon! I feel like that salad would be a perfect 4th of July dish!!

  17. That macaroon….

  18. Ooo Tight-hip Yoga- THANK YOU!- I must be sleeping crazy these days because my hips are just a mess. I got a standing desk at work, and I had hoped that would help a lot, which it does… just need to keep improving my mobility I guess.

    HAPPY FRIDAY!!! Love the tea mug ๐Ÿ™‚ I picked up a cute one with an elephant on it at TJ Maxx a few weekends ago.

  19. I’m binging on a prodigious amount of bell pepper while reading in the sunlight and pretending to be an active member of society.

    I’ll probably run as well.

    I was dying during some Barre moves this morning because my hips are SO tight! I’ll have to give this sequence a try. ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. That lip balm and mascara are both my current faves! Loooove Tarte and Fresh brands…try the lip balm in all different colors – for some reason, it seems more natural-looking than lipstick to me ๐Ÿ˜€

  22. Hip openers! You know the way to my heart. Definitely incorporating these in tonight’s work out!

  23. I didn’t watch the draft but as a Miami Heat fan I am veryyy interested to see what is going to happen to our team in the next few days…

  24. Michele Y says:

    Awesome – Thank you so much for the tight hip yoga sequence!
