5 Things I'm Loving This Week | FRIDAY FAVORITES

I love sharing new discoveries with you guys and so I thought I would start a new series in which I tell you about my favorite things of the week. It will be a mix of fashion, lifestyle and beauty -- pretty much anything that stands out to me. I would love to hear if you are loving any of the same things as me!

1. Everything Cashmere

In the past, I had always thought of cashmere as an unattainable fabric, reserved for the uber wealthy. I had a few cashmere blends, but they were like 5% of the good stuff and really more of a wool blend than anything else. Now, enter the oh so wonderful Uniqlo and I too can revel in the world of plush softness next to my skin. I bought the above knit about a month ago and am now completely obsessed. I swear -- anything that isn't cashmere just isn't good enough for me. I think I may have become a sweater snob... And it's not just Uniqlo. Brands like Everlane, H&M and Marks & Spencer all have reasonably priced versions as well.

2. Lanolips

P.S.A.: If you have horribly dry and cracking lips, you NEED to get your hands on Lanolips ASAP. Ollie and I have both been suffering from painfully dry lips (to the point of bleeding) since arriving home to Canada in the depths of winter and after trying about a million other lip treatments, this is by far the best. It's pretty thick and a little sticky, but it stays on for hours and if you put it on before bed, it's still there in the morning. I've been using it for a week now and I feel like my lips are pretty much back to normal. I'm just using it now because I like the feeling and smell on my lips. I got it in the lemonaid flavor and it's soooo nice. I would have bought the unscented if it was in stock and the next time I'm in Sephora, I'll probably pick up one of the tinted versions because that sounds too good to pass up. Honestly -- couldn't recommend this stuff more.

3. Vegan Sticky Mushrooms by BOSH!

If you know me, it won't come as much of a shock to you that I've never been too fond of cooking. I do like to be healthy and eat a plant-based diet, so I've mostly cooked out of necessity more than anything else. But lately, I've been really loving it. Ollie bought me the BOSH! Cookbook about a month ago and since then I feel like I'm pretty much the best chef ever. We actually love it so much that we've been cooking together! I could have said that the entire cookbook is my favorite, but I thought I would highlight my favorite recipes each week. This week it has been the Sticky Shiitake Mushrooms. We've made it twice in 4 nights and I have a feeling it's going to be that easy go-to for nights we don't feel like cooking for hours. It's super easy to modify if you get sick of mushrooms as well.

4. Game Of Thrones Reruns

I'm sure every single one of you has watched Game Of Thrones, but have you re-watched it lately? I feel like it's been so long since the series began and with the enormous gaps between each season, I had forgotten what happened along the way. I think I liked it even better the second time around and now feel like I'm ready for the final season to begin in March. I actually ended up watching it a little too quickly, but I just couldn't help myself! Maybe there's time to watch it again before March??

5. Ugg Boots

Ok, I know this one will divide most people, but honestly -- aren't Ugg Boots the very best thing in the whole wide world?? I haven't gone a single day this winter without putting these things on my feet and I feel like I would be a lot more miserable without them. Don't get me wrong -- I think they're absolutely hideous when worn outside of the house, but as slippers they are most probably the best invention ever.



  1. M&S and Uniqlo really do have great Cashmere jumpers!!! Your so right! I keep hearing GOT is coming back for its final season in April so I've been doing a mad binge watch since the start of the year! Just finishing season 2 lol! I know I'm slow lol! - x

    1. Aren't they the best?? And don't worry -- I think your speed of watching GOT is much better than mine. This way you'll finish right on time!
