Happy Friday, everyone! I recently came across a quote that I’d like to share with you all:
“The first wealth is health.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
I couldn’t agree more! There’s your daily dose of wisdom to start your weekend off on a good note. Now onto the favorites!
Lots of good things happened this week, including a lunch break trip to the pond (close to my work) to feed some fish! I forgot who told me, but someone recently mentioned that they read a study where people who spent more time outside felt more connected to nature and thus happier with their life and less depressed. Seems pretty obvious to me, but now we have a fancy shmancy study to support this.
Have you seen those little EOS lip balm pods in stores? The people at Evolution of Smooth (EOS) sent me the blueberry acai lip balm to try out and I am in love! It smells delicious, it’s paraben and petroleum free, 100% natural, 95% organic, and the shea butter and vitamin E are making my lips very happy. I actually think I may be addicted to lip balm. It seems like my lips are chronically dry ever since my days of using tanning beds, and now I carry one with me at all times. This one is so cute, though. Plus acai berries are loaded with antioxidants, so if I’m absorbing some of those too then I am a happy camper.
Am I the only person out there who thinks sushi is a sexy food? What, you don’t categorize your food like that? You are missing out. Move over chocolate, raw fish is hot. Okay fine, chocolate is sexy too. But there’s just something about using chop sticks to pick up slabs of raw fish which you then dip into spicy wasabi and elegantly eat that I love. I crave sushi almost hourly and loved breaking up the work week with a mid-week sushi dinner date.
This weather is glorious! Fall officially hits this weekend and the temperatures have really started to dip in Philadelphia. The air is especially brisk in the mornings when I walk into work. I even broke out the North Face jacket this week to keep me snuggly when I’m waiting for the train <--- story of my life. However, when it comes to chilly temps, I have a strict foot ware policy. Somewhere along the line, I decided that I would not allow myself to bring out the traditional UGG boots until October. This policy developed (I think) when I was in high school and the coolest "trend" was to wear UGG boots in the summer with mini skirts. That, my friends, is just not right. Ain't nobody got time for sweaty feet in July. Anyway, end tangent.
And finally, try these Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips. I got a bag in my Bulu Box this month and they are so flavorful! Plus, they’re gluten-free, vegan, corn-free, non-GMO, and pack a punch with the fiber and protein. I haven’t checked to see how readily accessible they are in stores, but I really want more. Someone find them and ship me a bag or twelve, please? 🙂
Have a wonderful Fall weekend!

Ever tried EOS lip balms?
Do you have any clothing policies? No white after labor day?
