Fashion and Beauty Reviews Lyfe Thinking Out Loud

C’mon get Happy! Red Cups to Movies


There’s been a lot of heavy discussion on the blog lately as I deal with the mental and physical effects of this freak injury. Because that is exactly what it was: a freak injury that I couldn’t really have prevented. So today, we are loosening up and having a little fun and putting a smile back on our faces by thinking the random thoughts that are so perfect for Thinking Out Loud Thursday

First though, I want to remind everyone of my Sunwarrior Protein Giveaway and my new Skoop Ignite and Starter Kit Giveaway. And now for the random!

In the vein of Andy Cohen,

Here’s what I’m obsessed with today:

Chicago Fitness and Healthy Living Bloggers Erin's Inside Job and Suzlyfe meeting up with Gigi Eats at Bountiful Eatery in Lakeview Chicago!

My Brick Betty long sleeve. I love the colors, the color blocking, the pattern, and the fabric. And THUMBHOLES.

When you are feeling less than your best, you need things that make you happy. This shirt totally makes me happy.   It is perfect for long runs or just athleisure-ing around town. Get yours at Brick, and be sure to use me as your referrer! As a Brick Betty Fit Pro, I receive commission on purchases, but all opinions are my own.

Block Island Organics Moisturizer with SPF 30. This stuff is legit. Block Island Organics uses only organic, all natural ingredients and clear zinc only (the best and safest UV filter). it has scads of moisture from shea butter and aloe for my (already) dry skin. I put it on the in morning, and my skin still feels great by that night. Seriously.

Block Island Organics Sunscreen + Facial Moisturizer utilizes all natural, organic ingredients to deliver superior moisture and sun protection! Check out the review at

It might be getting chillier, the sun less strong, and I might not be spending much time outside right now from lack of running and being super mobile, but I am making a real attempt to take care of myself as if I was leading my normal life. That means moisturizer and trying to get back to using SPF everyday (I tend to slack on this when I get lazy). The 2 in 1 nature of the Block Island Moisturizer makes it a no brainer for me. I have a feeling this moisturizer will be my godsend this winter! Block Island Organics contacted me and sent me product in exchange for review, but opinions are, as ever, my own!

Turner Classic Movies Presents Roman Holiday.  Roman Holiday is one of my favorite movies of all time, and TCM is present limited showings of this Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant classic in select theaters–including the theater right next to me!!! SO EXCITED. It was my first Audrey Hepburn movie (her first as well), for years I had a serious fascination with Rome, and Hepburn and Grant are just perfection. I’m glad that Alex loves this movie, too. Anyone want to join us??

Speaking of movie tickets, I’ve already got our tickets for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2. We are going Thanksgiving weekend with my family and we are seeing it in IMAX. GO BIG BABY.

I finally came up with the perfect Halloween costume. Well, actually, I came up with 2 perfect ones a week ago but a) then that-which-shall-not-be-named occurred and also it didn’t really have any reason to mention it. Also, I forgot one of them. But the original one I remembered: BADASS UNICORN.

I mention it because someone reminded me of my Badass Unicorn status the other day. I am a Badass Unicorn every day, but next Halloweeen, I’m totally dressing like one.

I try not to get political on this blog–everyone’s opinions are their own–but this was just too freaking funny:

Ben Carson's Dinosaur stables

And then I had a (to me) really witty thought on Tuesday regarding the Starbucks Red Cups: 

Ben Carson's Holy Grail Mme

I thought I was funny, at least, and right now, I need that. Also, there is a Starbucks Groupon out right now. 

Speaking of red things, Alex and I finished the apples! 

Take your pick of the best Michigan grown Braeburn and Fuji apples at Klackle Orchards in Greenville, Michigan on your Grand Rapids Vacation! Find out ehat we got and what i made with them at!

That means I’ll have to make my Healthy Apple Pie Mug Cake with store-bought apples. How pedestrian.

My last bit of YAS for today? My two FAVORITE AND BEST SALAD BARS EVER are even closer to me than ever. Today, Bockwinkel’s is opening thisclose to me, and FoodEase (which was close before) is now even closer. Between those two and a Whole Foods a block away?

And I’m good. In fact, I’m off to go to one of said salad bars and filling up. On to go boxes as well, because Foodease (this one is the Beatrix Market) has the best boxes. #noshame
