5 on Friday: 5 Things I’m Loving Lately

Posted January 4, 2019 by Renee / 18 Comments

Welcome to 5 on Friday, a little list of things I’m enjoying lately.  I got this idea from Tim Ferris who sends out his 5 Bullet Friday posts to all his email subscribers and Laura Tremaine’s Secret Posts. If you’re interested you can check out Tim’s website at Tim.blog and Laura’s at 10thingstotellyou.com . I thought it would be fun to do a short and simple posts of things I’m enjoying lately. Every week you’ll find different content…could be books I’m reading, movies, tv, recipes, quotes, articles, household items etc….anything I’m enjoying to pass along in the hope that you might also find something you’d like.

Some of My Favorite 2018 Best Books Lists by Fellow Bloggers & Instagrammers…your TBRs are about to get longer:)

Easy All Natural Snack I’m Loving
No Bake Peanut Butter Power Balls I was looking for a healthy, quick yet filling snack to have before or after a workout that includes chocolate and these peanut butter power balls are so good. They’re also quick and easy to make

Movie I’ve Loved Recently
The Mule  starring Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper. Bradley Cooper can do no movie making wrong in my book. Clint Eastwood is the focus of this slow burn thriller, however, and I thought the whole thing just worked. There’s plenty of dark humor, suspense, and bad guys to go around. Could I have done without a couple scenes involving Eastwood & MUCH younger women….ummm yes, otherwise I have no complaints. Highly enjoyable!

Recent Sample I Got at Sephora That I’m Liking So Much I Might Purchase the Full Size 
Tatcha Eye Illuminating Treatment  You may recall that I recently posted about my favorite eye creme (Algenist Eye Renewal Balm)  which I love but doesn’t do as much for dark circles. I recently got a sample of this Tatcha eye treatment which I use after the eye balm and I LOVE it. It’s light and isn’t drying like I find many concealers to be. Plus the sample has lasted a few weeks so a little goes a long way.

Podcast I’m Loving
SarahsBookshelvesLive with Sarah Dickenson. You guys know I love podcasts and I’ve been so excited that fellow blogger and friend Sarah is starting her own. It debuted on Jan 2 and you can find it on iTunes or go to Sarah’s blog SarahsBookshelves for details and links about where to listen. I love the format and I think you will too!


Are any of these also on your favorites list? 

Have a Great Weekend!

  1. I saw The Mule last week and completely agree with everything you said about it. The Peanut Butter Power Balls sound amazing! Thanks for the link to my Best of 2018 list! Happy New Year to you!

  2. I’m definitely making those PB balls! My dr has put me on a gluten-free diet, and it’s so expensive to buy GF snacks and these look and sound amazing…plus, I’m a PB lover! Thanks for the link; I can’t wait to try them!

      I find the all natural high protein no wheat snacks in groceries SO expensive so I’ve really been on the hunt for things I can make at home. I love peanut butter and dark chocolate too! Hope you like these!

      • They really are so expensive and some just taste terrible! I’ve been making things at home too-they taste better and are cheaper in the long run. I could eat dark chocolate all day, lol. Thanks, I’m sure that I will! 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for including my Best of 2018 in your links!

    Those peanut butter balls sound great. I really need ways to get more protein into my diet. My weakness is sugary carbs and they’re not good post workout!
