Friday Faves (June 22)

Before I get into the post, I’ve gotta thank everyone for your wonderful and encouraging comments on my last post! I love having the support and also knowing that some of you out there are in a similar boat as me and want to stop letting your lives be dictated by ED. It’s only been a couple of days since I decided to actually buckle down and start eating more and while it is hard to change that mindset, I’m already feeling stronger and happier.

Favorite Bath & Body Works Scent: Signature Vanillas LemonΒ 

Can you tell I’m obsessed?

Since this scent first came out (either last summer or the one before), I’ve been in love with it. It seriously smells like a lemon poppyseed muffin with a hint of vanilla. It’s my daily go-to lotion and when I was at the mall the other day, I spotted the matching shower gel for only $2! If you love BBW and haven’t checked out their semi-annual sale yet, doooooo it! They’re having the best deals right now. Oh, and as if having the lotion and shower gel weren’t enough, I also have the lip gloss in this scent. Yeah, I’m kinda obsessed…

Favorite Dessert-like Breakfast

Are you sure this isn’t actually a decadent dessert?

It’s no secret that I have a major sweet tooth. I am NOT a savory breakfast kind of girl at all, but sometimes I even take my breakfasts to the extreme. Okay, not really, but this particular breakfast was pretty dessert-like. I made peanut flour flax pudding (peanut flour, ground flax and almond milk mixed together and set in the fridge overnight to thicken), added in a spoonful of dark cocoa powder and topped with fresh raspberries, chopped almonds and semisweet chocolate chips. Ummm, yeah, I could eat this every day! What other dessert boasts 10 grams of protein and flax seeds? Probably not many.

Favorite (Actual) Dessert I Want to Make: Vegan S’mores Hot Fudge Sundae

Who wouldn’t want some of this deliciousness? (photo courtesy of Healthy Happy Life)

It’s been years since I’ve had an ice cream sundae, and sometimes a girl just has to treat herself to one (especially if she’s trying to eat more/gain weight). S’mores (and ice cream sundaes in general) aren’t usually vegan-friendly but this one is, thanks to the use of nondairy ice cream, ricemellow creme and soy whipped cream. Once I can track down some of the ingredients, I will for sure be trying this out…and reporting back, so you guys can try it too if you want!

Favorite Activity of the Week: Selfies

Trust me, this isn’t the only one I’ve taken this week!

Okay, actually this isn’t true. I’ve done a lot more exciting things this week but I don’t have photographic evidence of those things (such as messing around with the mannequins at Dillard’s with my sister…) so this is what I went with. Some days I just get bored, whip out my phone, pull up the Instagram app and go to town. It’s kinda fun making different faces and playing with the different effects.

What’s your favorite lotion scent? Do you have a dessert-like thing you like to eat for breakfast that’s actually healthy?

  1. Way to focus on the positive! And if a yummy dessert-like breakfast isn’t positive I don’t know what is. πŸ˜‰ I also love anything that smells like vanilla but the gardenia scented things get me as well.

  2. I’m obsessed with lemon everything. I need to get my hands on that body wash + lotion!! Also, that s’mores ice cream sundae just looks amazing. I may have to treat myself to a giant ice cream sundae sometime soon haha πŸ˜‰

  3. I love the Victoria’s secret lotions like Love Spell but Bath and Body works are all great too :). I think I have a vanilla scent like that or maybe I even have the lemon one, I always stock up at the semi annual sales because they’re so great and the stuff makes really amazing Christmas and birthday gifts too. Your sundae looks delish!

    I love BBW. I’m going to have to buy out my local store’s inventory before I leave for college this fall! That dessert looks SOO good.

  5. Yes love some friday faves! Bath and Body works is my total weakness. I love their wall plugs, so that my apartment smells crazy good. Right now I have an obsession with their peach bellini flavor. It is sweet, but not too sweet.

    Also I would like one of those vegan smores sundaes pleaseeee. That looks yummy. I’m going to have to make one.

  6. I need to check out that scent!! I love warm vanilla sugar but it’s more of a winter/fall scent. The lemon makes it perfect for summer!

  7. I love Bath & Body Works Toasted Coconut – not sure if they still make it anymore but it made my mornings complete πŸ™‚
    I am SO not a savory breakfast girl either – give me my sugar πŸ˜‰
