After a super-quick trip to Raleigh, I’m back in Charlotte, ready to teach a PiYo class this morning! Seeing my aunt, uncle, grandma, mom and cousins was such a treat and even though my visit was a short one, I’m so glad I made the trip and hope to see everyone again soon!
Tomorrow I am off to Chicago for a weekend with some of my very best girlfriends! We go way back to elementary school and I cannot wait to see them and meet my friend Leah’s baby boy for the first time!

The anticipation of seeing some of my best friends is obviously the thing I’m loving most right now, but let’s dive right into your usual Things I’m Loving Friday post and chat about a bunch of things we’re loving this week! As usual, please feel free to chime in below in the comments section.
Have a great weekend!
Things I’m Loving Friday
This cloth is amazing!!! My sister and my mom swear by it and earlier this month, I started using the cloth and walked away so incredibly impressed with its makeup removing abilities. I used to wash my face with face wash or an exfoliator and always felt like I got my face pretty darn clean until I used this cloth that always picks up makeup I would’ve left behind. Bonus? It’s less than $10 and when you wash it, the fluffy white cloth comes out looking brand new every single time. (Note: The box says the cloth takes off your makeup with just water, but I still like to use my usual face wash it and simply use the cloth to dry my face/remove any remaining makeup.)
- KIND Bars
During our trip to Sanibel two weeks ago, I snacked on my fair share of KIND bars since we had a bunch on hand at the condo for an easy grab-and-go beach snack. Well, I ended up falling in love with a new-to-me flavor: Dark Chocolate Nuts & Seat Salt. (Notice this flavor is not featured in the above pic because they don’t last long in our house.) My previous favorite, the Almond & Coconut bar, has now been relegated to second place, but it’s still very tasty!
I prepped this recipe last night when I arrived home from Raleigh and was so happy to wake up to a breakfast that was ready to eat when I woke up this morning. It’s so easy to throw together and a great dairy free overnight oats option for those who cannot/do not want to eat dairy.
- Fabletics Weston Pullover
This cute and trendy pullover came in my February Fabletics delivery and I’ve been wearing it non-stop ever since. It’s lightweight but still cozy and the mesh top + cut outs on the back make it so unique. (FYI – It’s also available in gray and is quite affordable!) And while we’re on the topic of comfy clothes, Janae has me convinced I need these real-pants-that-are-actually-sweatpants in my life. I’m just not sure I can pull them off like she can, but it’s worth a try since my all leggings all the time look is getting a little old. Looks like a trip to GAP is in my near future…
- Sour Patch Kids Redberry Gum
I used to chew a ton of gum. I still absolutely love gum, but when I realized I was chewing an excessive number of pieces of gum a day, I stopped buying gum for a while to break the habit. Now I’ll still pick up a pack of gum somewhat regularly but a pack will now last me longer than a day or two, which I consider a small victory. I still get awfully excited when I see new fun gum flavors pop up on the market and when I saw Sour Patch Kids redberry gum for sale at the grocery store check out aisle, I had to buy a pack. Though it obviously doesn’t replace real Sour Patch Kids, I do love the sweet punch of flavor I get from each piece. It’s pretty darn good!
