Friday Five - What I'm Loving Right Now

Hey Friends! This is my first time participating in the Friday Five Link Up so it seems like the perfect opportunity to talk about five current favorites!

Before I get into the things I'm loving right now, I want to first give a special thanks to the DC Trifecta Bloggers (Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC, Mar from Mar on the Run, and Cynthia from You Signed Up For What?!) for hosting this link up! Make sure you check out their blogs as well :)


So without further ado, here are five things I'm loving right now:

A little black dress - Believe it or not, sometimes I do buy non-running clothes ;) This dress from Express was a recent purchase and I can't wait to wear it out. I love that it's a basic, timeless shape with a bit of a twist. The only accessory it needs is a great pair of heels!


Krave beef jerky - I was first introduced to this delicious snack at last summer's Bird Camp and have been eating it ever since. It's a great mid-afternoon snack when you're craving something a bit salty but don't want to load up on starchy chips or crackers. 


Oiselle Jagged Sweatpants - I might never take these sweatpants off. They are the height of comfort and I love the fun design. Just the thing to throw on after a workout or when lounging around on a Sunday afternoon. Pairs perfectly with a Wazelle Long Sleeve in cream. 


Bumble & Bumble Creme de Coco Shampoo - I shower twice a day so my hair takes a bit of a beating. However, it remains smooth and shiny thanks to this miracle-working shampoo. It's a tad pricey but well worth it because it keeps my hair so healthy that I only need to get it cut about once a year and never deal with the nonsense of styling products, etc. 


Trader Joe's Fig and Olive Crisps - These crisps are so addictive. While snowed in one weekend this winter, I ate an entire box over the course of just a few days. They're sweet, salty and crunchy, all in one. And extra delicious paired with goat cheese! 


That's enough from me for now. But I'd love to know what's happening in your life. 

Tell me: What are you loving right now?

  1. Welcome to the Friday Five!!! Haha it's the best linkup around. :)
    The more I look at Oiselle stuff, the more I'm thinking I should just hand them my wallet. So many cute things! And I love jerky as a snack, especially on road trips. Right now I'm loving the Starbucks tiramisu latte. I think I need to go get one right now. Have a happy weekend, lady!

  4. I've been undecided on the Oiselle sweatpants because I love leggings…I'm loving the VS dorm leggings the most right now!

    1. I love leggings, too! They're my go-to for work - but only because sweatpants would probably be frowned upon ;)

  7. Those sweat pants look super comfy! I have cross country ones from high school still (those suckers have held up very well throughout the years!) and I practically live in them. I know...might be time to upgrade haha!

    1. You really can't beat a pair of perfectly worn in pants. But if you do ever upgrade, Oiselle sweats are pretty awesome :)

  8. That is the best shampoo!!! Love it! It's so hard to find in the stores around here lately though, they always have the seaweed something or other and I'm just not too sure about that one haha. You and me my friend, have the same taste buds haha I love goat cheese, so I can only imagine those crackers would be an amazing pair with it! Super cute dress too :). I'm loving Noosa Yogurt. Have you had it!? Don't look at the sugar content haha, but it is super tasty for a little treat :)
