I have big plans for this blog in 2018.
no, this isn’t me spouting off all this nonsense that’s not going to happen. I even put together an editorial calendar…. whaaaat?!! being oh so prepared and ready to crush it this year!
i’m starting a new installment for each friday called the “friday five” – so original, right?!! (insert eyeroll here) so i’ll stop blabbering now and get down to it!
fave clothing buy
these thermals are SO good! mike and the boys got me one for my birthday and i’ve been living in it ever since. it goes with everything. you can wear it loose, knotted or with a front tuck and it comes in like a million colors now. its your perfect t-shirt + jeans topper! (i wear an XS in this one)
i also picked up this variation during yesterday’s snowstorm after one of my fave bloggers was raving about it. i’m hoping it doesn’t fit as snug as the pics online, so i sized up to a medium just in case.
fave beauty buy
last month during the VIB sale, i grabbed this primer after being not so impressed with mine lately and a beauty blogger i love highly recommended it. it does not disappoint!! my makeup stays put – even on my oily skin, goes on smooth and blurs my ginormous pores! i really like that you can also get a mini size so you’re not blowing the bank when giving it a try.
if you caught my last post, one of my 2018 habits is reading one chapter of a book every morning and i knocked out this read in just over a week! i really loved this book and its message for us gals who feel like way too much and not enough at the same time. it even inspired our “verse of the week” on my chalkboard wall! so if you’re looking for a new read, I highly recommend this one!
when planning each week’s menu and ordering my groceries (if you haven’t tried out instacart yet, you are missing out on life!), i always head over to old faithful skinnytaste for some new and healthy recipes. as always, this was great and the whole family gobbled it up! i served it with some cilantro lime brown rice and green beans – SO so good!
ps: wanna try instacart? use code JROSADO1F21FD for $10 OFF your first order
if you love mrs. meyers, method and seventh generation products, you need to head over to grove! even better, they are offering a FREE New Year, New You Set with your $20 purchase and its SO good!
you will get Mrs. Meyer’s Hand Soap, Dish Soap, Hand Lotion, Cleaning Caddy and Walnut Scrubber Sponges for FREE along with a Free 60-day VIP Membership which you can cancel at any time! for my $20 order, i got their cellulose sponge cloths, a 2pk of kitchen towels, method all-purpose spray and some hand sanitizer.

so there’s my first friday five of 2018.
