Friday Favorites

It’s finally Friday! I’m gonna share some things I have been digging lately that have brought me bits of pleasure during “the week that lasted forever” (aka the week before spring break).

I’ve used Dr. Bronner’s All-One soaps on and off for years, but find the scented ones too drying. I picked up the mild, unscented version recently to see if it is less drying. I’ve been using it as a body and face wash and so far so good! Non-drying and no breakouts on mah face!

I have a problem with lip balms. I’m addicted to them. But I don’t wanna not be addicted to them…wait, what? I got these new flavors a week ago when Crazy Rumors had a 20% sale. My favorite flavor of the bunch is the chocolate strawberry followed by the red hibiscus. I have made a pact with myself to not buy anymore until I finish a couple of tubes, which is making me rub them on my lips like crazy because I want to try this brand next!

I have been loving and craving all the Asian foods lately. One day, I will make my Asian meals from scratch like Hannah from Bittersweet, but until then I raid all the pre-made stuff at my local Asian market.

Clockwise: Yeo’s soy milk, ramen noodles with some vegan fish chunks and green onions, sweet chili sauce, vegan gyoza.

In music, I recently discovered Florence + the Machine and have been listening to them non-stop. I’m a big fan of strong lady vocals.

My favorite quote…”ain’t nobody got time for dat!” by Sweet Brown.

This quote has really helped me manage my time this week. For instance, when I thought I should stay late at work to grade papers, I thought “ain’t nobody got time for dat!”. And when N suggested I clean up all the files on my computer to make it stop acting so buggy, “ain’t nobody got time for dat!”.  I’m sure next week when I think about all the things I should be doing instead of having fun, this quote will save me from wasting my life away because “ain’t nobody got time for dat!”.

Happy Friday!

      Haha, yeah I am going to try and make time to post regularly again. It is tough getting back into the blogging routine when I go without blogging for months at a time.

    Whew, I’m glad I’m not alone in my strange attraction to lip balm! I’ve forced myself to stop buying them, since I pretty much have a lifetime supply already. I love Crazy Rumors though… Their mint-chocolate ice cream variety is one of my favorites!

    Oh what beautiful dogs!
    I love gyoza. It’s very unlikely I will ever make them from scratch- not when I can order them in a restaurant, or buy them frozen.
    I can’t remember my lip gloss brand, but the flavour is coconut. Yum!

    We’ve been using the Unscented Dr. Bronner’s for about a year now. My one and only has sensitive skin, which seems to react with a lot of soaps. He’s had no problems with this one though. I heard it can also be used as toothpaste, and gave it a try. Ew… I haven’t seen those Crazy Rumor flavours yet! I’ve been really liking the peppermint collection, but that Red Velvet flavour sounds like it was made for me! :-D

    Aw, you give me far too much credit! I hardly make all my own Asian foods from scratch- Some times, you just can’t beat good old greasy Chinese takeout. Your carefully curated meal looks far better than that anyway!

      The funny thing is that I think they know it too. Yup, just spoke to both pups, they know it, the smug little guys.. Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and commenting!
