It’s Friday!!! Woohoo!
Can I get an AMEN?!!
Ok, I might’ve had a bit too much coffee this morning. Please excuse me. 😯
Anyhoo, Happy Friday Everyone! This weekend will be filled with gelato, festivals and…..Women’s World Cup Soccer!! This Sunday here in Vancouver, it’s the final match between Japan and the U.S. Last weekend, I was lucky enough to go to the Canada vs. England game. Too bad they didn’t win, but holy what a game!
Okay so this weeks Friday’s Favorites starts with something I will be indulging in tonight. Gelato! A summer staple here. The best place here in Vancouver, hands down is Bella Gelateria! Wanna know how good it is? James Coleridge (owner of this yummy establishment) actually won “World’s Best Gelato” in Italy.
Yup, it’s that good.
Ok, next is the Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner by Jane Carter. My hair being naturally curly, tangles easily. This stuff has not only stopped that in it’s tracks, but has made my hair much softer!
Now, I don’t know where you are, but here in Vancouver, we’re having an unbelievably warm summer. And it’s been like this since May. Not sure if you’ve heard, but we’re kinda known for our rain….not this year! Well, if you need a way to cool down, these Fresh Raspberry and Gin Slushies from the uber-talented Joy The Baker will definitely do the trick!
The next one on my Friday Favorites list has to be one of my favorite quick & easy dinner ideas. This Provencal Pan Salmon from Chatelaine is so good yet so easy to throw together on one of those busy days.
Ok, since the weather is so warm right now, this next one is a must for all of you make up junkies like myself. This Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base from Nars keeps your eyeshadow from melting right of of your face! Now, who doesn’t want that?
I go to the gym probably about 3-4 times a week. And while I love strength training, cardio is my arch-nemesis. Partly because of my asthma, but also partly because I find it utterly boring! Enter in Aisha Tyler and her oh-so entertaining podcast called Girl on Guy. Her interviews are both HILARIOUS and thought provoking. It takes all the muscles I have sometimes not to burst out laughing while on the treadmill at the gym. She says whatever’s on her mind and I love it.
Now, if you’re looking for a dessert but don’t want to add to the heatwave in your home, these No-Bake Cookies & Cream Meltaways from Lemon Tree Dwelling are it! I mean you really can’t go wrong with these.
Last but not least on the Friday Favorites list is sunscreen! Now, I’m not one who slather’s it daily if I’m just out and about, but if I’m going to the beach, park or just going to be outside for a long time, then sunscreen it is. This Sensitive Side 3-1 Sunscreen from Kiss My Face is my favourite right now. It’s easy to rub in to your skin and doesn’t feel greasy or heavy either. And most importantly, it doesn’t have the harsh chemicals in it that most sunscreens do.
