Since I am getting this post up later than usual, let's move right along to this week's favorites and what I have been loving. Share your favorites from the week in the comments below!
Linking up today's favorites with Heather, Katie, Jill, and Clare!
I made these flourless pumpkin cookies from Lauren Gleisberg's blog and have been loving them as a sweet treat to end my day this week. They were extremely easy to make and taste so good! I have had a can of pumpkin in my cupboard since the fall and have been wanting to make something with it, so when I saw this recipe and saw that I had everything (besides the chocolate chips) to make it, I immediately went to the kitchen to make them. I plan on making another batch this weekend to enjoy for another week. They are less cookie consistency and more of a doughnut (at least that's how mine turned out) and I pop one in the microwave for a few seconds to warm it up and eat it while ending the night.
I love, love this post from LaurenConrad.com. It can be difficult to decide what type of dress to wear when invited to certain events and how to decipher what the dress code is from the invite. This post hit the mark with all the right information. I have it pinned so next time I need help deciding what to wear I can easily look it up and find the perfect dress. And now I really want to get all dressed up for something fancy!
Between battling a cold, the weather, and long days of studying, tea has been my go-to this week. When I need an afternoon caffeine boost, I have been enjoying a cup of green tea, before I go to bed I have been enjoying herbal tea (Mandarin Orange is so good!) and it has been my warm-me-up after walking around campus in this cold weather. I go between drinking tea non-stop like this week and to not having it much at all, but I am hoping at least the evening herbal tea sticks since I always enjoy having some before bed, along with a flourless pumpkin cookie too :).
My face has been so dry with the winter weather and is always in need of some extra moisture along with a tint to keep me from looking wintery pale. I have recently fallen in love with BB cream since it is so quick and easy to apply in the morning and keeps my face looking fresh all day. I have been using this CoverGirl brand BB cream and love that it helps hide some of my acne scars and is not oily at all, since that is always a major problem with creams like that for me. Plus it has SPF sunscreen in it too, which I have been trying to get better at applying during the winter.
Yes, I am so excited it is finally the weekend that it is being included as a favorite. I am ridiculously happy that I don't have work on the schedule and can relax and catch up on life. I missed Scandal last night because of a review session for my exam and it is killing me! I need to watch it ASAP. Please no spoilers until I watch it!
That's it for now. I have to head out to my field placement for my education class (I was totally hoping for a cold day!) and get some other work finished up before enjoying my roomie date tonight! See you Sunday for my weekly workout recap!
Any fun plans for this weekend? What are you up to?
Enjoy the last weekend of February!
