5 Things I’ve Been Loving Lately

I have no idea why I’m making such a crazy face, ha ha ha!

1. Barebells Creamy Crisp Protein Bars

These protein bars taste so good – kinda like a not-to-sweet mix of a Rice Krispie Treat and a Milky Way. Each bar has 20 grams of protein, 200 calories and no added sugar.

Plus, they don’t get stuck in your teeth, which I love! I can’t deal with bars that give your jaw a workout and leave you feeling like you’ve been chewing on a nasty old leather shoe for 20 minutes.

If I’m having major indecision first thing in the morning at breakfast (it happens to me a lot), I eat one of these and a banana and I’m good for the entire morning.

They’re kid friendly too, as Connor loves them. I now keep one in my purse for emergency snack-age!

I get ’em from Trader Joe’s, by the way.

2. Vincent Ford

He’s a London-based makeup artist, and his work is beautiful and approachable. Whenever I scroll his feed I feel so inspired! I especially love this “Pretty Grunge” look that he posted recently.

Now you wanna wear smoky eyes and gray gloss, right? LOVE IT.

3. Walking around and seeing fallen leaves everywhere

On one hand, my fall allergies are, like, “Nope!” On the other hand, I cannot help but be in awe of the thick carpeting of leaves on the ground. It’s magical!

I think especially it’s cool how I can’t tell where my normal paths start and stop. And of course there’s the poetic beauty in the trees letting go of their leaves… Sigh, I love it so much.

4. The “Quiz Lady” movie on Hulu

This comedy stars Awkafina, Sandra Oh and Will Ferrell, and even though it’s totally predictable, it’s 100% enjoyable.

Two sisters, free-spirited Jenny and game show-obsessed Anne, team up to save their kidnapped dog from a loan shark. Of course, hilarity ensues!

If you’re in the mood for something light and fun, hit play.

(Side note, I thoroughly enjoyed Jenny’s crazy outfits. Sandra Oh goes all in with the character.)

5. The “Quiz Lady” soundtrack!

The soundtrack is so, so fun. I’ve found lots of new songs and artists to listen to!

This song, “Guerilla” by Remi Wolf, is my favorite. Fun fact, she went to Palo Alto High School here in the Bay Area.

Oh, and I can’t sit still when I hear this song by Scissor Sisters. Put it on your workout/dance playlist ASAP.

I don’t understand half the lyrics in these songs, but I’m feeling them.

Happy, happy Friday to you, my friend!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
