Five Friday Faves #9

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY, BEAUTIFUL! โค Boyfriend and I are celebrating the holiday together right now so, I sort of cheated and wrote this last night (Thursday). *Shout out to WordPress’ scheduling feature! ๐Ÿ™‚

1. Crunchy Peanut Butter Mixed in (Dairy-Free) Yogurts

Silk Dairy-Free Soy Yogurt Alternative in Strawberry topped with Sprouts Organic Honey Nut O’s, Mom’s Best Oat & Honey Blend, and Sprouts Organic Unsalted & Unsweetened Crunchy Peanut Butter

I threw some crunchy peanut butter into my vanilla-flavored yogurt when I ran out of other toppings earlier in the week because I needed a little crunch somehow. Luckily, I ended up LOVING it more than I thought I would. Honestly, I don’t think I can ever eat yogurt without it again. It’s almost like a milkshake, how thick and creamy it gets. Yum yum yummy. โค I highly recommend!

2. Late July – Classic Saltine Crackers

One of our recipes this week called for some saltine crackers so, it was the perfect time to try out the Late July ones I spotted when we bought their Organic Classic version. They’re thick with the nicest, stable crisp, a subtle saltiness and mmm, I’ve just always been addicted to these sort of plain crackers. The Ritz original crackers and the Premium Saltines have finally been matched and replaced!

3. Starbucks – Espresso Roast Ground Coffee

Phew! If I had never tried some almond milk in my Morning Joe roast that I had previously, I would’ve never gotten through it. This Espresso Roast is labeled dark, just the same but, it’s not deathly bitter/dry. I absolutely love the smooth, intense flavor and it doesn’t need ANY enhancements.

4. Touch in Sol – Pretty Filter Waterful Glow Cream

Finally! A gel-cream done RIGHT. This is the first of its kind that didn’t make my hands or face sticky. It sunk in effortlessly and felt amazing, too. There’s no scent, really, which I’m happy about and the hydration lasts all day. My skin was smoother and softer to the touch the very next day, after only one application.

5. Love is Blind on Netflix

love is blind

Someone, please, tell me you were intrigued and sucked in by the new Netflix series, Love is Blind, as quickly as I was. I can’t even tell if this sh*t is for real, it’s so hard to believe that people would be willing to get married that quickly (and without even seeing each other before they propose!) but, man… the disbelief does not stop me from watching it and even rooting for certain people. I’m in the middle of episode 2 and crying that they are trying to be like Hulu by not giving us the entire show in one go. Instead, we get new episodes weekly… and right now, there are only about 5? ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Oh well, at least I have Love Island Season 06 to watch… lol, can you tell Reality TV is my weakness?? ๐Ÿ˜›

What were some of YOUR faves this week?!

  1. That waterful glow cream sounds right up my alley! I love gel creams that absorb nicely. I will have to get some.

    Oh my gosh, I like Love Is Blind too! I already watched the 5 episodes, so now I have to wait for the rest. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ The show is a bit ridiculous with the concept, but yet I can’t stop watching. My current favorite couple is Lauren and Cameron (the interracial couple). I hope I don’t spoil too much, but one of the couples breaks up shortly after their engagement. I won’t say who in case you’re not there yet, but it was pretty crazy. He was pretty creepy and disrespectful though so I don’t blame her for leaving.

    1. I remember you telling me that you liked gel creams! I’m glad I never gave up on them because this one is so lovely. Hope you like it if you do try it. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Oh my gosh, I am SO glad that the couple broke up. They were not right for each other & the guy was so rude, even if he was going through a tough time. I think the concept would be more believable if they just had to like, become a couple & not full out get married but I am excited to see the weddings lol. I think Lauren & Cameron are my favorite, too! I was kind of mad how so many of them were like “ooo, so & so was better looking than I thought” when they first all met each other. I feel so bad for Mark!

    1. Isn’t it sooo pretty?! โค & I'm so excited that you've been watching Love is Blind, too!! My favorite couple is probably Lauren & Cameron. I really like the Venezuelan girl, too, but not sure about her man yet… my least favorite was definitely Diamond & her man even before the big fight… now, I'm feeling so sorry for Mark. Jess should just go home, she obviously wants Barnett… who is gross to me lol. How about you? Who are your most & least favorite?!

  2. The Touch in Sol cream looks so pretty and sounds amazing! Glad youโ€™re loving it! Your Friday Fave posts are some of my favourite of yours Hunida, and I hope you had a lovely Valentines Day. Also love how you mentioned the Ritz crackers briefly, theyโ€™re so yummy!

    1. I am really impressed with the Touch in Sol cream, especially after the last one I just finished up. ๐Ÿ˜Š I’m so happy you like these FFF posts, Jennie! They are so fun to share! โ™ก I hope you had a lovely Valentine’s Day, too! & yesss, those Ritz crackers are addicting, aren’t they?!

  3. Yogurt toppings sounds like a great idea. I usually dont add anything to mine because they are typically a side to something else lol. I will try the fruit salad thing today before my fruits go bad lol
    I remember trying a gel cream for the first time, although i cannot remember the brand name at the top of my head. They’re really really amazing!
    I haven’t seen love is blind pop up on Netflix for me, perhaps because I dont really watch any reality TV on Netflix. It’s usually hulu and that is usually love island lol. I have other reality TV shows that I used to watch on my list, but havent gotten to them yet lol.

    1. Oo, I’m curious, what do you usually eat as a side with your yogurt? I always top mine with at least cereal, fruit, or granola & eat it just like that! The PB was so fun & different, yum. Hope you enjoy your fruit salad. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Every other gel cream I had tried before was sooo sticky & did not hydrate my skin at all. I was pleasantly surprised with this one! You’ll have to let me know if you remember the brand name of the one you liked. ๐Ÿ™‚

      LOL, both Hulu & Netflix know my addiction to Reality TV. Love is Blind is really ridiculous but I like it. ๐Ÿ˜› let me know if you try it out haha.

      1. So usually I’ll have a bagel with either a side of fruit or a yogurt cup lol. The only times yogurt has ever been a “main” dish for me was when I mixed it with granola and some fresh fruit LOL
        It’s not coming to mind? LOL I just remember getting it in a beauty sub, maybe Sephora?

          1. Lol, usually when I have yogurt as the “main meal”, I eat a lot of it lol. And add insane amounts of fruit. xD
            That’s the Biossance gel moisturizer. Technically that was the second one. Gosh, why am I thinking Belif.. let me look it up. it might have been that one, the true cream aqua bomb but at the same time I feel like it was another haha. Nah who am I kidding, it probably was. .

  4. My friend was telling me about Love is Blind! From the sound of it, it reminds me of Love at First Sight. I didn’t know it was weekly. Heck, I don’t know if I want to wait and watch the whole thing or just watch it as they release. I have no patience for TV shows, haha. I really do want to watch it though! I think Stephen cringed at the previews, so I’ll have to watch it alone, haha.

    1. Where can I find Love at First Sight? Lol, I wanna check it out. ๐Ÿ˜› I didn’t even want to tell boyfriend what the show was about when I started it but, he started to look over my shoulder & tune in a bit. He now knows all the “contestants” & drama when I talk about it out loud LOL. It’s really addicting, honestly but I am so impatient with TV, too. I wish I would’ve waited until all the episodes were available but I’m in too deep now lol.

  5. Shoot, I got the title wrong. It’s actually called Married at First Sight. I don’t know if you’ve seen it or not, but it is on Hulu! I watched a few episodes but forgot about it after moving. It’s so crazy how they let parents choose their spouse for them!

    That’s so funny that boyfriend knows what’s going on in the show to discuss it with you too ๐Ÿ˜‚ That’s how Stephen was when I started watching Jane the Virgin, and he ended up watching it with me! I think I’ll wait on watching it, but I do wanna watch it!

    1. Oh whoa! Their parents choose their spouse? Lol reminds me of that old dating show, Parental Control on MTV! I’m gonna look it up once I run out of episodes of all these reality shows I’m currently watching lol. Thank you for telling me about it, hehe. โค

      Can't wait to read your thoughts on Love is Blind when you start it! I don't think there will be too many episodes so will let you know when they're all uploaded. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Yes, they do, and they donโ€™t meet until theyโ€™re at the altar for their wedding! I havenโ€™t looked at the stats on how many of these marriages are successful, but Iโ€™m super curious now.

        Thank you! I think Iโ€™ll start Love is Blind this week. My friend said they release in batches. I thought they released one episode a week for some reason, so Iโ€™ll start it!

  6. Can’t wait to try the crunchy peanut butter mixed into my yogurt!!! I usually only buy plain yogurt, so I will mix honey in it too, since you said you use vanilla, which tells me I need it to be sweet, not sour. And people eat honey & peanut butter sandwiches, so, should all work with the yogurt, right? LOL

    1. Ohhh I think you’re going to love it, Jinjer!! & I tried it with honey mixed in before, even with my already sweet yogurt. I liked it. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also tried it with flavored yogurts like strawberry & blueberry, also delicious! Maybe you could have your plain yogurt with fruit preserves & add PB, too? That could be really nice!

      I love honey & PB sandwiches. โค
