Five Favorites .11

Happy Friday, y'all! Who else is so excited that it's Friday?! It's been a very full week here! Today, I'm bringing back a series that I apparently abandoned back in 2021: Five Favorites. This series is just what it's called: five of my current favorite things. Now, that I'm back into a regular blogging routine, I'm hoping to share this series on a regular basis!

1. MO NEWS PODCAST: As soon as I drop my kids off at school each morning, I immediately turn on a podcast. One of my very favorite podcasts right now is Mo News. Here's the description: A daily podcast from Mo News (@mosheh) breaking down the headlines--from the essential to the entertaining -- with reliable analysis you can trust. Episodes will feature regular news updates with Mosheh Oinounou and Mo News Managing Editor Jill Wagner, interviews with newsmakers and answers to viewer questions about the headlines. I honestly have avoided the news at all costs in the past 10 years. I have always found it to be so depressing or just annoying. But, this podcast has made me appreciate knowing what's going on in the world again. The podcaster are entertaining and give the facts to you straight. I would highly recommend it!

2. MANEATER MASCARA: I have incredibly sensitive skin and eyes. Sometimes I feel like I'm literally allergic to the world! I have tried so many mascaras and it's hard to find one that doesn't irritate my eyes. If I use the wrong one, my eyes will get red and water so much. Sure, I could just give up mascara but I love the look of it. I found this Maneater mascara from Tarte when I was reordering my favorite lip gloss. I decided to give it a try and I've been using it since November with zero issues. It curls, lengths, and volumizes so yes, it checks all of the boxes!

3. CAULIPOWER CHICKEN TENDERS: Have you tried these Caulipower chicken tenders?! They breaded with rice flour and cauliflower! I'm gluten free so it's hard to find substitutes to your favorite foods that actually taste good. Well, I'm here to tell you that these are amazing! We add them to our salads, wraps, or own their own. My favorite way to prepare them is in the air fryer. They come out perfectly crispy! They come in a traditional flavor as well as spicy-ish. These are always in our freezer!

3. BEYOND SWEATER: I love finding comfy cotton sweaters that are leggings friendly. This beyond sweater is so soft and so comfortable. I wore it this past Saturday with my favorite leggings, high top Converse sneakers, and a belt bag. The perfect outfit for thrifting! The fit is oversized but I went with my larger size for an even more oversized, relaxed look.

5. KARLA REED: This last favorite of the week is an Instagram follow. If you aren't already following Karla Reed, you need to! She was one of the very first people that I followed on Instagram that I didn't actually know in real life. This was back in 2012 so it's been about 10 years since I started following her! I originally followed her because we both were styling and sharing primarily thrifted outfits back then. Her style is classic, attainable, and thoughtful. She's so inspiring and keeps it real!
