Hey there!

Started this day off with a STRONG cup of coffee followed by some cardio on the elliptical. 

I’m also starting this morning off with a 30 Day Gratitude Challenge for the month of July. 
While this is not a challenging task, I wanted to put out some positive energy to the real and social media world to express my gratitude and hope that you will take the journey with me! Just comment on my Instagram or leave a comment below on what you’re grateful for @whineandwit



Day 1 of Gratitude: 

What smell are you grateful for? 

I am grateful for the smell of freshly brewed coffee (because I LOVE coffee and it reminds me that I am grateful to wake up everyday to smell it), freshly cut gardenias that my mom always gives to me when they’re in bloom and the smell of a home cooked meal to remind me that I am well fed, healthy and fortunate to afford a hot meal when there are so many others that cannot. 




Next up-
Here are my favorite things of late!

1.  A Corfu salad with grilled chicken from my local Greek restaurant. It is delicious!!! It almosts tastes like dessert because of the sweet craisins and honey mustard dressing. This is had romaine lettuce, feta cheese, walnuts, tomatoes and craisins. I can’t wait to recreate this!

2. I used to be a huge Yankee Candle fan – but since I learned that they’re not great for my allergies I haven’t bought them too often. But when I smelled this scent I just had to have it!

3. DIY Essential Oil spray! I made a lavender calming room spray and a disinfectant room spray that I brought to work. Chemical free and all natural. 

4.  Charmed on Netflix! I used to LOVE this show as a teen. Yes, it’s super cheesy and not realistic, but it takes my mind somewhere else and helps me power through my cardio workouts 

5.  Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners Hand Lotion. No, I’m not a gardener (yet-hopefully when we find a house), but this lotion is amazing. It smells fabulous and is super creamy and thick. I recommend using it at night before you go to bed so it soaks in while you sleep and wake up with silky smooth hands!

6. Some sneak peek photos of our wedding the photographer sent! I’ll be posting soon all the wedding deets!


Welp, that wraps up this Friday Favorites! 

What are some of your favorite things??
