Friday Favorites – December Edition

Cleaning up a local park with fellow November Project peeps.  Who knew that digging and mulching would be so exhausting?


As I was cleaning out my room this weekend, I stumbled upon a few gems.  First up, a Fabletics coupon from the Blend Retreat back in May.  Fabletics is an online subscription program that sells women’s athletic gear and accessories.  The outfits mimic Lululemon and Athleta with lots of tank tops, comfort-fitting sports bras, and yoga pants galore.  They even have you answer a questionnaire about the types of workouts you participate in most or lifestyle habits and offer personalized outfits based on this information.  Becoming a VIP member also has its perks –> 1) personalized activewear, 2) up to 40% off complete looks, 3) 20% off all separtes, 4) free shipping on orders over $49.95, and 5) easy returns and exchanges (always a winner).

I completely forgot about this coupon card and nearly tossed it into the trash.  How many pieces of athletic gear do I really need?  No, don’t answer that please.  One thing led to another and I was signing up for a Fabletics account and just so happened to find this beauty.

Client dinners call for one epic 20-layer cake (note, even with 12 people, this could not be finished!)

While this was chocolate and peanut butter concoction was absolutely delicious, the super rich treat my have have contributed to the poor sleep I got last Thursday.  Well, it may have been that plus the cheese + salami place, wine, and other oodles of dessert but what can you do?  Let’s just say clean eating during the week doesn’t really prep you for those splurge meals and my stomach was not too impressed.

  1. I was an early adopter of Fabletics, but what I found was that they were always out of what I wanted or even out of my size in my second and third choices, so I was always either getting something I didn’t care for, or banking my credit. So I cancelled my subscription a few months in. Hopefully now that they aren’t so super new they do a better job at keeping stocked.
