Friday Faves

Hi friends! Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. I apologize for being the worst blogger ever this week. I feel like I’ve had so much to tell you, but the packers packed my computer cord, so I’m stuck with a dead computer (and no Apple store or the type of cord I need in sight). So, I’m blogging on the Pilot’s PC, which is hilarious after using a Mac for so many years. I feel like a Neanderthal, discovering a computer for the first time. I do weird things like press down on the keypad and try to swipe my fingers to clear the screen and it’s a hot mess. I’ll be back to my normal blogging schedule next week, and it’s 10-year Blogiversary time! SO MANY GIVEAWAYS on the way. Get your party pants on.

For now, it’s time for the weekly Friday Faves roundup! This is where I share some of my fave eats, wears, finds and reads from the week, and also get the chance to hear about all of the things you’re loving. Please join in the fun and shout out some faves in the comments section!

Fashion + beauty:

It’s that tiny sliver of the year when I can wear white jeans without dying of a heart stroke, so I’m living it up. These are my fave Joe’s Jeans with the same Tory Burch sandals I wore all over the beach in San Diego and are coated with glitter from P’s Belle costume. They may not look like it, but the shoes are pretty indestructible.

Beautycounter’s new peel is on the way! Band of Beauty members can preorder now.  I’ve been anxiously awaiting its release since I’ve seen the testimonials online. I wanted to wait and hear how friends responded who also have sensitive skin, and they’ve all had amazing results.

I laughed kind of hard when I saw these. Like whyyyyyyy. 

Read + watch:

I’m looking forward to seeing the new Wreck-It Ralph with the girls.

An important post following the tragic news about Kate Spade. Please remember that if you’re suffering from depression or suicidal thoughts, you’re not alone, it’s not your fault, your life has value, and it’s worth it to reach out to a friend or trusted source to feel better. Here is the number for the US national hotline: 1-800-273-8255

25 hilarious memes that will make you laugh if you grew up in the 90s. All of these things are so true.

Another Top Gun. I have so many feelings about this.

Great post on cultivating female friendships as an adult.

Kyle is already crushing it in his new gig, and I can’t wait to test out some of the new menu options.

If babies wrote Trip Advisor reviews.

    Hahaha Balenciaga has been crushing the shoe game lately. I think my personal favorite are the shoes that are supposed to look like 1980s BK Knights or something…except they cost 1000 dollars and you can’t buy them at Mervyns.

    Wow, I can’t believe you’ve been blogging for 10 years! It is making me think about how much my life has changed in that time! We are the same age, I feel like I am a different person from when I first found your blog!!

    • Fitnessista on June 8, 2018 at 3:11 pm

      WHAT. I need to look for those ones! mervyn’s made me LOL. that was the spot back in the day
      and yes, it’s crazy!! I can’t believe how much has happened since then, but at the same time, it flew by.

  2. Aubrey on June 8, 2018 at 9:42 am

    So sad about Kate Spade and now Anthony Bourdain! Whyyyy!!?

    Super excited for your blogiversary – I can’t believe it has been 10 years! I have read your blog from the beginning and have loved watching the evolution 🙂

    • Fitnessista on June 8, 2018 at 3:08 pm

      we’re heading to Tucson temporarily

  5. Nicole Kump on June 8, 2018 at 11:16 am

    Love the outfit in your pic! I’m too messy to wear white pants though they look nice. I would not make it through a meal haha. This has been a sad week regarding suicide. I was shocked this morning about Anthony Bourdain. What a sad loss. I hope you have a safe trip to Tucson. My dad is coming to town for a few days so that will be fun. I’ll message you next week after you’re settled here to try to meet up soon!

    • Fitnessista on June 8, 2018 at 3:08 pm

      i’m always interested to see how they hold up when i’m out and about with the girls.
      I KNOW. the news about Anthony took my breath away. so so sad.
      and yes, i’d love to see ya!

  6. Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious on June 8, 2018 at 12:21 pm

    Moving? OMG I’m so far behind in blog reading.

    • Fitnessista on June 8, 2018 at 3:07 pm

      I haven’t posted a ton about it. it was a last-minute decision and it’s kind of a long/weird story

  7. angie on June 8, 2018 at 12:26 pm

    Wait you are moving…you just got to V-town? Is pilot deploying again? Mama i am sooo glad to be retired and not deal with that anymore. LOL

    I am excited to try the SUJA drinks. I love their drinking vinegars. My fave flavor is the strawberry 😀

    • Fitnessista on June 8, 2018 at 3:07 pm

      yeah we’re heading out temporarily.

  9. Amanda on June 8, 2018 at 2:24 pm

    First, congrats on the upcoming blogiversary! I’ve probably been following along for 9.5 years. Wow!
    Safe travels to Tuscon. I’m jealous of your summer with zero humidity or hurricane threats. My weekend includes attending a wellness/meditation center open house with a friend and then a cooking class at Sur La Table (along with the usual weekend lineup).

    • Fitnessista on June 8, 2018 at 3:06 pm

      thank you so much for following for so long!! <3

    The 90’s were the best!!

  11. Tracy on June 8, 2018 at 3:54 pm

    Yay! I was hoping you were getting to go back to Tucson! Even if just temporary. I know that’s where your heart is!

    Excited for your blogiversary! Congrats!

  12. Melissa Caulfield on June 8, 2018 at 5:04 pm
