Friday Favs {August 12}

Woohoo. TGIF. This week has been…different. There’s been travel, getting back into a routine and, honestly, feeling a little sad. It’s always hard to leave home, family and friends. Somewhat harder is realizing we actually live here in Germany and this isn’t just a vacation. But, I’m focusing on the positive and planning some upcoming trips!

And speaking of the positives from this week, let’s jump into the Friday Favs.

New Favorite Snack

This snack reminds me of the after school snacks my mom would feed me, except minus the Goldfish. But, I’ve eaten this snack twice already this week and it is so good, so simple and so filling. It’s just a Granny smith apple with a side of Gruyere cheese. Perfection.

Scalp Remedy

I have a really dry scalp. I have for years. But thhis summer has been horrible for it and when I was getting my hair cut a few weeks ago, my stylist suggested this Aveda product, scalp remedy. I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks and I definitely notice a difference. I use it 3 times a day and my scalp is less flaky and dry. One interesting note: my scalp did better in the States. I’ve washed my hair twice since we’ve been back in Germany and my scalp is worse. It must be the water. I love hot, like skin scalding hot, showers. I am going to try to take colder showers to see if that helps at all. Any tips?

Bitch Sesh RHONY Season 1

O.M.G. This is everything. Because of the Olympics, Bravo isn’t running any housewives shows, so there was nothing for my favorite podcast to recap. BUT, in the amazingness that is Casey Wilson and Danielle Schneider, they didn’t just skip a week. They decided to recap the pilot episode of Real Housewives of New York. And the episode is amazing. I even watched the episode myself and it was a trip. Admittedly, I ended up watching the entire first season in one night.

They try out Jules Weinstein’s new cleanse drink and their reactions are hilarious. Casey almost vomits. I was taking Copley for a walk while I listened and I was laughing out loud. Alone. On the street. With my dog. My absolute favorite line was when Casey was talking about how she visited a psychic who said that there was someone plotting to put a spell on Casey’s son. And the only way to get rid of it was to put a red string on his wrist or ankle for 3 months. Casey said, “So, I immediately go to Mood.” Dying. “Thanks, Mood.” The best line of the episode.

New Face Mask

In other beauty news, I just started using this new sulfur masque. I got it at Sephora and am obsessed with it. I have been using it twice a week and notice my skin is looking gorgeous. I’ve been having some issues with acne lately and this masque has helped clear it. It’s nothing horrible, just worse than it has been in a while. And like everyone else, I want flawless, clear, baby bottom looking skin. I’m on my way, I think!

I’m really looking forward to the relaxing weekend around the house, getting back to the gym and organizing the house.

What are your favs this week? What are you looking forward to this weekend?
