Friday Faves – The Fitnessista – Health News Today

Hi friends! Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. It’s been pouring here in Tucson the past couple of days and we’ve embraced the monsoon storms with open arms. It’s one of my favorite things about living in the desert. Thank you for the kind comments on our bedroom update! Thanks to Lindsay’s tip, we rotated the rug and I love how it opens everything up a bit more. I’m also thinking of adding some type of plant in the corner where the tower thing is located. Please let me know what type you think would look good (and that is easy to keep alive lol).

It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party! This is where I share some of my favorite finds from the week and around the web. I always love when you share your faves, too, so please shout out something you’re loving in the comments section below.

(P’s princess braid this week! She’s super into dress-up right now and I’m so here for it.)

Fashion + beauty:

– Love these earrings! I got them in a Trunk Club shipment and they’re classic gold hoops with little pearls. I’ve been wearing them with a white button-up and jeans or with casual maxi dresses and hair in a bun.

(I couldn’t find the exact ones online but these are very similar.)

– If you’re breaking out from all of the mask wearing (aka maskne), check out these two products: the Counterstart cococream cleanser and the overnight peel. Quite a few medical professionals have shared that they use a thin layer of our cleansing balm as a barrier when they have to wear masks for extended periods of time. Between the mask and the cheese I ate a couple of times this week, my chin is a hot mess.

– Ordered a couple of new swimsuits since we’ve been swimming every day. I don’t think I’ve bought anything from American Eagle in maybe 15 years (??) but a friend told me they have cute suits and omg they DO. I got this cheetah one-piece and this ruffly top. (Giving AE some props for featuring incredible diversity in their models. So beautiful.)

Fitness + good eats:

Check out my latest post for WebMD with favorite ab exercises.

This 45-minute yoga flow with Ally Maz. I did this practice last weekend and it was PERFECT; the perfect mix of juicy/stretchy and an energizing flow. I feel like I struggle a bit with rushing yoga classes when I teach, so I’m going to continue to take her classes for some ideas on how to slow down and settle into the poses.

YOU GUYYYYYSSSSS. This was the best thing I’ve drank in forever.

I was sitting at my mom’s pool with my feet in the water, watching the girls swim, and my mom walked over and handed me one of these. It was ice cold and SO flavorful and refreshing. When I took a drink, my eyes lit up. I think she got a kick at the pure joy on my face. So a Michelada is a mix of Bloody Mary and beer. It’s savory and bubbly and so dang good. She took the can of the pre-made stuff and added lemon juice, garlic power, and a little Worcestershire sauce. It was a dream…
