Friday Faves (July 6)

The festivities of the 4th are over so now it’s back to real life. Who am I kidding, summer isn’t real life, at least if you’re still a student! I still have about a month left at my internship but the majority of my weeks are spent doing whatever I want. I’m definitely appreciating that I can still do that–in a couple years, that won’t be an option!

Favorite App: LabelBox

Labels make everything more fun!

I’ve been noticing cute little labels popping up on a lot of people’s Instagram photos so I had to do a little sleuthing to figure out how they were doing this. Turns out, it’s a simple and free app called LabelBox. It’s available for iPhones/iPods and Androids and it’s so easy to use. Basically all my Instagram photos will be labeled now. #Sorryimnotsorry

Favorite Obsession: Waffles

Told you I’d be using these labels a lot!

I almost can’t remember the last time IΒ didn’tΒ have a waffle for breakfast! And don’t be fooled, these homemade waffles are 100 times healthier and tastier than those pathetic frozen Eggo waffles. I’ve been loving on the protein waffles mostly but when I just want a simple, fruit-packed waffle like the one above, I just use some oat flour, which gives it a perfectly fluffy texture while also packing it with fiber. And toppings are necessary, of course. I topped my 4th of July waffle with fresh raspberries and protein frosting made with Vega vanilla almondilla protein powder and water. Mmmmmmm!

Favorite New Find (that I haven’t found yet): So Delicious Greek-style almond milk yogurt

6 grams of protein and fiber ain’t too shabby for a nondairy yogurt!

The Amande almond milk yogurts are decent, but a little too jiggly and low in protein for my liking. When I popped on over to the So Delicious website and saw this gem, I knew I had to have it ASAP! The only thing I somewhat miss from my non-vegan days is Greek yogurt, and now I can get my fix in nondairy form, with more fiber and calcium than the dairy version! I just need to find it in stores first…

Favorite 4th of July Activity: Water balloon wars

I probably dropped more than I caught, but it was still fun!

What do you do on the 4th when it’s hotter than an oven outside and inside, the parade your family was planning on going to was cancelled and there are no fireworks shows within 100 miles? Have a water balloon war, of course! Filling up countless water balloons was worth the fun we had and it was actually great getting water in your face when you didn’t catch a balloon. Not that that happened to me though πŸ˜‰

What’s something fun you did on the 4th (whether you’re from the U.S. or not!)? What’s your favorite app?

    I keep seeing the cute labels on everyone’s instagram pictures as well! I need to download that app asap.
    I’ve been searching everywhere for the So Delicious almond milk yogurt! I have yet to find it in any stores near me. It looks and sounds sooo amazing though- and has more protein than their coconut milk yogurts (which I love too!)
    And I played with water balloons on the 4th too! I felt like a little kid again. I loved it. (:

    I want to have a water balloon war! I am so doing that this week since it’s finally sunny here. I love waffles, and they have to be homemade. I hate the frozen kind. I wish I had a waffle maker. I’ll have to remedy that soon.

  3. Aaaah,I need to get that app! Thank you for mentioning it,I never knew it was THAT easy to get labels,haha πŸ˜€
    Water balloon wars sound so fun,too – I’m glad you’re having a good time at home,really. You deserve it!

  4. Thanks for the heads up on the app Ashley! I am soo out of the loop with cool stuff like this… I always need to talk to you about anything fashion related, that is for sure girl! Water balloon fights?! Heck yes to that! I am going to do that with the kids I babysit for next week! Ahh how fun, can’t wait πŸ™‚ I am also so glad to hear home has been treating you well… you deserve it to say the very least dear! Enjoy your weekend πŸ™‚

  5. Favorite app would definitely be instagram! I used to love water balloon fights!! I haven’t had one in forever. I think that needs to change! Glad you had a great 4th πŸ™‚

  6. Enjoy your laid back summer! Since my internship is in NYC and I don’t get to live at home, I have to have a job in addition to it – so I worked all 4th (and I work all weekends). I’m kind of ready for the internship to be over so that I can catch my breath!

  7. Well first, I’m glad I found your blog. You had me when you said “Summer isn’t real life”. No, no it’s not and I love it. I manage a pool so that is what I was doing on the fourth…I did do a road race that was pretty fun. Hope you had a fabulous weekend girlie and can’t wait to read more!
