A Few Favorite Vegetable Toppings + Recipes

It’s time for another weekly links + loves and I’m also including a few Q&As that I didn’t get to answer on my Monday morning Q&A. You can scroll to the bottom of the post to see them.

I mentioned my 2 favorite intimates items that I bought in 2020 on Instagram stories the other day, and wanted to share the links here in case you missed it. The chantelle high rise briefs are my very favorite for extremely thin, stretchy, lightweight underwear. And my top bra pick was the Natori Pure Luxe Underwire T-Shirt bra. As far as bralettes go, the Tommy John Second Skin Bralette is my favorite for comfortable support without a wire.

I read We Were the Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter over the holiday break and was swept up completely in the story. It was heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. It took place during world war 2 in Poland, and parts of western Europe. I would highly recommend reading this book!

These wine glasses are beautiful!

My mom made these peanut butter balls over the holidays and they are SO GOOD!

Justin got this flashlight on a Cyber Monday deal and we shared his unboxing and testing out of the light on Instagram Stories a few weeks ago. Since then, I’ve gotten so many follow up requests for a link! The light is a Marauder 2 and you can find it here.

Mary Orton, one of my favorites to follow on Instagram, launched a course with her husband Rich called “Owning the Interview”. If you are looking to improve your interview skills, I’d encourage you to check it out! You may remember me mentioning Rich awhile back when he interviewed me for the podcast “Influencer Business by Trove”.

If you have children in school and are looking for any supplemental curriculum or worksheets, we’ve been using various products from Teachers Pay Teachers and I would highly recommend it.

I have a Varley sweatshirt with a hood that I really love, and just found a hood-less version on Amazon with the same drawstring waist!

If you are looking for a great basic v-neck tee, this is it.

Question and Answer:

Are you wearing false lashes right now? I am. I’m wearing Lashify lashes and they are very comfortable and shave so much time off of my “getting ready” time!

What is your favorite lip mask? I’ve been loving the Lanegie Lip Sleeping Mask.

How do you fuel for your morning workout? I don’t. I can tell a big difference in my output when I’m able to drink coffee beforehand, but most days I don’t do that just because of time.

Eyebrow Routine? Have you done micro-blading? I have not done micro-blading and don’t plan to at this time. I use Anastasia brow products and just fill them in when I do my makeup. 

What do you do for work? I’m a blogger/influencer/digital content creator. 

What is your favorite under eye cream? I’ve been loving Bobbi Brown Eye Base as a daily eye cream under makeup. I use something heavier at night, such as the Fresh Black Tea Eye Concentrate. 

How do you know if a hair product you are using is working? It depends on the product but generally, you should see results from styling products instantly. For deep conditioning, repairing, or leave-in type of products, give it a few weeks to see if your hair transforms! 

Is it bad to sleep with wet hair? Not necessarily, but more than anything you want to make sure it’s combed out so you don’t have any of your hair bend in knots while you sleep.

What shampoo do you use for your kid’s hair? I’m not too picky about their shampoo, but I did just grab some Head & Shoulders for Luke as his scalp is pretty dry. Hoping that will help!

Quick question…most of your links do not come up. Is is something I’m doing?

How often do you use a hair mask?

My daughter’s scalp got SUPER dry in March- to the point where it was very scaly with large flakes! It seemed to happen out of nowhere. We used Head and Shoulders and it cleared it right up! Good luck!
