Five Things Friday #69

Another week has flown by and it looks like winter has officially landed in Chicago with snow and single digit temperatures. The good thing is that I’m out of Chicago until Sunday and back in Virginia where the temperatures range from 40-50 degrees. Excellent.

Neil and I flew back to VA Thursday afternoon to attend his work’s annual holiday party. You may remember last year it was at an Air & Space Museum. The party isn’t until tomorrow night, so I’m taking these couple days to explore old haunts, see old friends, and make sure I get one of my favorite cupcakes EVER.

WHICH CUPCAKE IS IT, YOU ASK? Check back on Monday for a full VA recap or check out my Instagram this weekend since it’ll be up there before the weekend is over. Until then, make sure to check out some of the things I’ve been loving from this past week!

1. Green Blender

Green Blender is very similar to Blue Apron but with smoothies. Fellow FitFluential ambassador Jenna launched the business in Chicago and LA and I was able to try it out this past week. I’m planning a whole review (plus a discount code!) next week, so be sure to check back to read all about it!

2. Air Fitness 

I atteneded an aerial fitness class with my friend Leah on Wednesday night and had a great time! It was definitely different than a lot of the high-intensity workouts that I do, and there were modifications to accommodate every fitness level.

I had a great time, but an even better one staying after and flipping around.

3. Lululemon Power Y Tank

Earlier in the week I went into my local Lululemon for a Black Card fitting. Employees are able to select one person to come in for a fitting and receive a free tank or bra. It took about 30 minutes and I tried on way more Lulu than I ever have in my life.

I confirmed that I was in love with the Tight Stuff Tights, which is never good when they carry a $150 price tag. If only I had won the Powerball…

I left with a Power Y tank which I love. I don’t have a lot of tight tanks and I love that this has the bra built in so I can just put it on and go. I don’t need much support when working out, so this works great just the way it is!

4. Oak Leaf Lamp

Ok guys. My review post went up Wednesday about this awesome lamp and then by the time I woke up it had sold out!

I’m working with the company to get a giveaway up for you guys so at least SOMEONE can get one!

5. Sweet Potato Mug Cake

I saw this sweet potato mug cake pop up on Lindsay’s twitter feed one night as I was trying to figure out what to snack on. It only has sweet potato, maple syrup, one egg, almond butter, cinnamon, and chocolate chips if you feel like throwing them in. It makes two mug cakes and after Neil had one the first night I just started eating both of them. So good.

That’s all I’ve got for this week friends. Have a great weekend and I’ll see you Monday!

Also a big congrats to Reina F. for winning the Influencer Marketing for Dummies giveaway!
