Hi beauties! I unexpectedly took a short 2 day blogging break this week. One, I was quite a sick puppy earlier this week (almost better now,) I also decided to tackle some Spring cleaning and I just wanted to enjoy my Spring Break…and unplugging from the internet is always a nice break. Quite frankly, I am not happy it’s Friday…I’m so not looking forward to Monday morning! After a week off, it’s going to be HARD!
And I’m super sorry for not making my blog rounds, I did keep up on my phone but did not comment on my daily reads…really enjoyed seeing what everyone else was up to! But now I’m here with my Friday Favorites!
Favorite Recipe // I’m currently trying my best to eat as healthy as possible, but every once in a while a girl wants tacos! Thankfully I found this super easy recipe for a Skinny Taco Salad! You guys…it’s SO yummy! In the original recipe she doesn’t use any meat, but I just couldn’t skip it, husband has to have some meat! So I made it with lean ground turkey, I loved it and it’s husband approved!
Favorite Purchase // In case you haven’t heard, Ulta is having their 21 Days of Beauty, they have SO many steals on prestige brands. Yesterday I bought 3 of the Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipsticks for $11 each! Check out their 21 Days of Beauty sales here!
Favorite Link // We all know that Instagram is a pretty big deal when it comes to blogging and makeup. Back when I first started blogging, the idea of having an Instagram Theme had not even crossed my mind. A theme…like a party theme? I mean is it necessary!?! This link has some great tips on how to theme your IG!
Favorite Song // A few weeks back I shared that I was loving “Where I Wanna Be” by Arizona…and quite frankly, I’m still loving it. But I have also been belting out to an older song of theirs, “I Was Wrong.” I just love this band and can’t wait for them to release more!
Favorite Blog Series // I saved the best for last! Elle from Elle Sees has spent a LOT of time and effort into researching how fellow bloggers and readers feel about sponsored content. Honestly, her series is a MUST read! She touches on everything that I think pretty much every blogger has felt at one point or another. Her last post to this series hits the nail on the head! Definitely check it out, if you haven’t already! And give her a follow while you’re at it! She’s a total sweetheart, incredibly supportive, posts amazing content, and beautiful inside and out!
That’s about it for this week, hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing weekend!
I shared a few Spring 2016 trends here…
