5.24 Friday Faves – The Fitnessista

Hi friends! Happy Friday! How was the week? I hope you had an amazing one! We’ve had a busy one over here, but school’s out for the summer and we’re all PUMPED. We all slept in today and it.was.magical.

What’s going on this weekend? For my parent friends: are your kids out of school or not yet?

This weekend we have a friend staying with us, have dinner plans the next three nights, and I head off to the Biohacking Conference next week. I’ll definitey be sharing a recap of everything I learn. I’m also excited to spend some more time studying for High Performance Health.

It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party! This is where I share some of my favorite finds from the week and around the web. I always love to hear about your faves, too, so please shout out something you’re loving in the comments section below.

5.24 Friday Faves


A new fridge! This was completely unintentional because our fridge broke last week. Of course, it happened the morning after I’d done a grocery haul for the entire week, and I had to toss out 90% of it. When they went to install the new fridge, water had been leaking behind it. It was a blessing that it happened when it did, because it the leak would have persisted, it would have been an entirely different situation.

This is the one we ended up choosing, and are adding a Clearly Filtered filter to the line.

This pour over coffee maker. I just can’t with the Nespresso decaf anymore. I’ve never been a fan of the taste, and I also don’t like pushing hot water through aluminum to drink. Instead, I’ve switched over to a glass and stainless steel pour over coffee maker. It tastes a million times better (I’ve just been using Whole Foods Organic decaf) and is much less expensive.

Fashion + beauty:

This Amazon dress! (with these sandals) It’s just a classic cut, good quality, and the perfect throw on dress. They don’t have many sizes left because it’s on sale for $9 (what?!) but I accidentally got an XS instead of a S and it works.

(With these sandals)

If you’re looking for a mom swimsuit, this is my #1 fave right now. I also have a list of mom suits here!

Best lipgloss for summer.

Read, watch, listen:

BRIDGERTON.  Worth another shout out because thoughts are consuming my life right now lol. I have half of one episode left and am trying to savor it. I’ll watch the episodes in my sauna blanket or on my walking pad, and it’s been such a lovely treat. Bridgerton and Emily in Paris are pretty mcuh the only shows I watch reguarly right now.

Took the kids to see If yesterady and wowwww my friend and I were NOT ready for that emotional roller coaster. It was a bit darker than anyone was expecting, and no spoilers, but the ending was beautiful. I’m not sure I’d see it again. I’d love to hear thoughts if anyone else has seen it!

Fitness, health, and good eats:

The BEST local chocolate.

New oil for oil pulling. (You can read about oil pulling here!) I typically use coconut oil, but of course, I had to try this one. It’s very lightly flavored with citrus and my mouth felt SO clean afterwards. It’s a smaller bottle, but a little goes a long way. A tablespoon was way too much, so I’ll be using a teaspoon from now on. Try it here! (Ps Oliveda had a huge restock if you’re looking for items that are OOS.)

Happy weekend, friends! Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today and I’ll see ya soon.
