It's the start of the weekend, happy Friday! I hope that your work day flies by and you're into weekend mode before you know it :) Not too much is on the agenda this weekend - I have a cousin's bridal shower on Sunday, but other than that, plans are up in the air. I'm going to try to take advantage of time and get started on a new business venture. Stay tuned for future posts to find out what I'm working on!
As you all know, today is Friday favorites, which means I'll be sharing five things that I've been loving this week. I would love to know what your favorites of the week have been - feel free to let me know in the comments!
1. Fountain of Health Humm! Hummus
I discovered this hummus at Whole Foods probably about a year ago, and now I can't bring myself to buy a different brand! If you're a Sabra hummus fan, trust me, this is going to be way better. They have several delicious flavors including, artichoke and spinach (the one in the picture), chipotle, caramelized onion (my fav), greek olive, roasted garlic, roasted pine nuts, and roasted red pepper. The flavor that I have on hand, artichoke and spinach, has a short and great ingredient list: chickpeas, water, tahini (sesame butter), canola oil, artichokes, spinach, lemon juice, sea salt, vinegar, olive oil, caper puree, garlic juice, garlic, onion, spices. I love that I can actually pronounce (and recognize) each of the ingredients in their hummus! All in all, this hummus just tastes fresher to me, and I definitely recommend trying it out!
2. Mini Sweet Peppers
This next favorite pairs perfectly with hummus. These mini sweet peppers taste just like they're described in their name: sweet! They're perfect to snack on with hummus or on their own! They're small enough that you could just throw a few on top of your salad, and they're also great for grilling in the summer! Just throw these little babes on the grill for a few minutes on each side, and you'll have an easy and delicious side dish for your dinner. You can find these at most grocery stores, my mom happened to pick these up at Whole Foods on Sunday, but I've seen them at Giant before too!
3. The Hills: That Was Then, This Is Now
Any other Lauren Conrad fans out there? To say that I was excited that The Hills: That Was Then, This Is Now was on this week is an understatement. My sister and I used to LOVE watching Laguna Beach (pretty sure we have all of the seasons on DVD) and we of course followed Lauren Conrad onto The Hills. I'm sure (hope) that many of you can relate to my obsession of her shows, haha. It was interesting to be able to see how the show filming worked - like how her and Brody's romance seemed to be staged for the show a bit (or a lot). Also, I was loving her hair in the That Was Then, This Is Now special and her clothes! Wouldn't you love to be able to borrow clothes from her closet?!
4. Queen Munchkin
Ohhh, Munchkin. So, many of you know that Munch had some health problems a few weeks ago, and due to them she's been on steroids for about two weeks now, give or take a few days. She has a partially collapsed trachea which got inflamed from allergens and the humidity, which caused her to cough, A LOT. Her coughing is starting to settle down, although this humidity isn't helping (go away gross, humid weather). Anyways, if you know Munchkin, you know she's a feisty gal, and being on steroids only means she's even feistier (is that even possible? yes, yes, it is), which means lots of barking and getting annoyed at her lil sis, Lola. The barking and temper has been just a little (a lot) annoying over the past few weeks, but I'm so glad we still have our little Munchie girl with us. She's 13, but she's a strong pup, and she never fails to make me and my family laugh - like yesterday when I put my workout headband on her (LOL). I hope that picture gave you a little bit of a smile and laugh to start your day!
5. Laneige Hydration Trial Kit
I saw someone else online raving about this skincare line, and I noticed that it was offered at Target (major win). So, when I was there yesterday grabbing ingredients for the homemade dog treats I made (click HERE for the recipe), I decided to pick up their Hydration Trial Kit. I generally have dry skin, so that's why I went for the hydration kit, but they do have other sample kits available! I really like buying trial kits when makeup or skincare lines offer them, because usually you get to try a good amount of their products for not too bad of a cost! This kit was $29 at Target, and I get to try six of their skincare products: their multi cleanser, power essential skin toner, balancing emulsion, water bank serum, water sleeping mask, and water bank moisture cream. The picture I snapped wasn't the best (sorry, friends), but the samples in this kit are decent sizes, and I truly think they'll last me a good amount of time! I'll be sure to let you know guys know in a future post if I like the products or not. To see all of the Laneige products that Target offers, and the review for them (they got awesome reviews), click HERE.
Well, that does it for this week's favorites! I hope that you all enjoyed this post, if you did give it a "like" by clicking on the heart at the bottom of the post, or let me know in the comments! I would LOVE to hear from you guys. Keep up with me over the weekend by following me on my Instagram (username: joyfullyjenna).
I hope that your weekend is fun and relaxing, catch ya next week!
