1. Yesterday I (finally!) picked up my free birthday treat from Cupcake. When you sign up for their emails, you get a cupcake during your birthday month. Score! I waited to go on a Tuesday so I could get the Chocolate Monkey cupcake: dark chocolate cake with chocolate chips and a walnut & peanut butter banana cream cheese frosting. I got this one specifically for the frosting; I usually don’t like chocolate cake. However, the whole thing was fantastic! And about the size of my face.
3. As soon as I saw her post, I made Oh My Veggies‘ recipe for Cucumber Chickpea Salad with Lemony Tahini Dressing. It’s the best feeling when you’ve got all the ingredients for a new recipe on hand, isn’t it? This was another one of her solid recipes that I will definitely make again.
4. Though I just got my hair done last week and it’s only July, I saw a pin that has me ready for Fall. This year, I vow to darken my hair. I’ve been talking about doing it for years and I need to just shut up and try it. This is the color I’m going for. Yay or nay?
My only concern is that I won’t feel as fun and playful as a brunette…Thoughts?
5. This. Want.
God bless a kettle bell.
6. I 100% agree with this statement.
Love your body and treat it right!
Happy Wednesday, friends!
