1.23 | high five for friday!



i got my january birchbox and stitch fix this week.  i loved both!  i got an email late in december that offered a limited amount of a special birchbox.  i jumped right on that and got the tone it up birchbox.  it was such a good box!  i’ll probably have to save the after-sun lotion for the summer, but i jumped right on everything else.  the body butter went straight to my nightstand.  i like the peel and dry shampoo too.  the palette is great, just really tiny.


click HERE for my quick review of my 3rd stitch fix.



my friend jess and i had another installment of #bitcheswhobrunch.  it was just what we both needed.  she never judges me and give me confidence about choices that i have to make.  she pushes me too and is completely honest with me.  i like that.  🙂



on wednesday night, we had a surprise foot of snow fall.  i really was not expecting that much so i didn’t want to get my hopes up.  i hate to give up a snow day, but it was kind of nice to drink my coffee for an hour and watch morning tv.  i wasn’t as productive as i should have been, but isn’t that how a snow day should go?



i’ve completed two weeks of the fitness blender 8 week challenge.  i’ve been working out 5-6 times a week for four weeks now.  i’m feeling better and stronger each day.  that’s all i want.  i’m also focusing on finding that balance between working my ass off and still giving myself a break every now and then for some treats.  i was just tired of beating myself up about “mistakes”.  mistakes are going to happen and they’re just a part of this whole process.

we have powerful things to do
i love this quote! check out erin brown on Facebook.


after a conversation with a friend at work this week, i ran across this quote by alice walker.  he told me i’m too passive.  and i am.   he also said that i need to quit letting people walk all over me and not be afraid of what will happen when i stand up for myself.  it’ll take some time, but i’m trying.  and yeah, it’s scary, but it’s also necessary.

  1. #BitchesWhoBrunch is the most perfect name for brunching I have ever heard!!! I just love those morning gab sessions (with mimosas) and honest chats.

  2. I love fitness blender! I just did one of the superset workouts yesterday and basically can’t move today. (but it hurts so good!)

    Stitch fix, I just can’t get myself to pay upfront. Do you feel like you get a good selection for your money?

    Thanks for linking up for H54F! Hope to see you again next week 🙂
