Happy Friday! I’m so ready for the weekend. I have to leave for my last work trip of the season on Sunday, but until then I plan on having fun and relaxing! I’ve got a girl’s night this evening, then the rest of my weekend is kind of up in the air.
The weekend waits for no one, so let’s get right into my favorite things from this past week. Make sure to share yours in the comments section!
Amber & Argan Scent
Bath & Body Works is one of my all-time favorite stores. I especially love their candles, but their body care is always really good too. Lately I’ve been loving their new amber and argan scented line.
The scent is really subtle and it’s not too feminine or masculine. The body cream is also super moisturizing and my skin has felt amazing since I started using it. So far I just have the body cream, scrub, and rollerball fragrance, but I definitely want to buy some more to add to the collection!
Scotchgard Rug & Carpet Spray
I wish I didn’t have to put this one my favorites list, but alas…..I do. When I walked in the door from work yesterday, the smell of poo had taken over my entire house. Bella literally pooped EVERYWHERE. She also peed and generally made a gigantic mess. It was a poo apocalypse. Since pooing on the hard floor was apparently not an option for her, she went all over the large rug in the middle of our living room floor. She didn’t even have the good sense to act guilty about it.
I had braced myself for a long night of scrubbing, but when I sprayed the pet spray and started cleaning the stains, they came right up! I remembered I’d used Scotchgard on the rug after we bought it and figured that’s what helped lift the stains in less than 10 seconds. I will literally never stop using this stuff.
Good Girls Revolt
This show was my binge of the week and I loved it! There were only 10 episodes and the show got cancelled after only one season, which was a huge bummer. I would’ve loved a season two and don’t really understand why they didn’t renew it.
Anyway, the show is about these women who work for a news magazine in the late 60s and decide they want to sue for the rights to be regular writers, which wasn’t allowed at the time. It’s on Amazon Prime if you’re a member and I highly recommend it.
One of my co-workers and I are both into the healthy veggie thing, so we went to lunch at Mellow Mushroom yesterday. For being a chain, they have a ton of vegan options! They have tofu and tempeh on their menu as well as vegan cheese.
I’m still super skeptical about vegan cheese, but I figure I won’t find a good one unless I actually try some, so we split their veggie pizza and had it made vegan (no butter or parmesan on the crust and vegan cheese instead of regular).
Our server said they use a cheese called Follow Your Heart, which he said is better than the Daiya cheese they used to use. I’d never had either, so I have no idea if it’s better or not. I do know I didn’t hate it, which is something. It had a different flavor than regular mozzarella, but not in a bad way. I will not pretend it was even close to being as good as the Holy Shitake Pie they make, but it was still a good and healthy-ish lunch.
Donuts + Coffee
Speaking of healthy, is there any better combo than donuts and coffee together? I don’t eat donuts often, but some students talked me into buying a box to support some research thing. I planned on just giving the box to our student workers in the office, then caved and had one with my morning coffee. I firmly believe you have to have coffee with a donut or it just doesn’t taste as good!
Hope you guys have a great weekend and I’ll catch up with you on Monday!
