Friday Favorites

I’m taking a page post out of Heather’s (from Life in Leggings) playbook and coming at you this week with Friday Favorites!

Wild Cherries Coffee Shop



We were in Truckee last weekend (nearby where we stayed with Mike’s family over the holidays) and I found my new favorite coffee shop; Wild Cherries Coffee House. It’s local. It’s cheap. I think the name is cute. And omg, the food. There was an array of delicious looking nomz from enchiladas to hummus wraps. We went there for breakfast and I ordered a breakfast sammy with egg, pepper jack, avo, and tomato. They made it fresh so it took a little bit but it was worth every minute waiting. I also snagged a few of their “day olds” for $1 and didn’t regret it for a second.

New Moon Natural Foods


Another Truckee gem! I saw this store back in December and wanted to check it out but didn’t have the chance to so, after coffee at Wild Cherries, I was like, we’re going to New Moon now!! Talk about an epic store! They had an extensive beer selection, lots of booch (kombucha), a variety of different sea vegetables (including kombu, which I’ve been looking for to try in a Magic Mineral Broth), and a whole bunch of natural beauty products; which brings me to…

Clay toothpaste 

I’ve heard about clay toothpaste before and, honestly thought, GROSS! every time. But, for some reason, this brand appealed to me while I was browsing New Moon. I bought it and guess what? I love it! I don’t think I can ever go back to tubbed tooth paste. My mouth feels so clean after using the clay version. Like, just-left-the-dentist-clean y’all.

I got the peppermint kind but they have cinnamon as well, if that’s your preference

Note: I made everyone who went to Truckee with us try it and I was the only person who liked it. I will admit the taste takes some getting used to BUT the after clean feeling can’t be beat!

Milk Thistle 



My friend Lydia told me about milk thistle and it’s liver detoxifying powers last year. I pretty much immediately bought a bottle at Whole Foods. I took a few after I popped it open but wasn’t consistent. However, I just started taking them again and … can’t really tell if they are working or not (hah) but I like to believe they are. I think that my liver is getting a little boost of love every morning!

FIRST Books 

This happens to me all of the time. I buy a book, read it, love the author, and then realize it is her second book. Certainly not the end of the world but it does mess with my orderly-OCD mind… Anyway, I finally bought 2 (first) books that I have been meaning to for a while now.


I Like You Just the Way I Am by Jenny Mollen (my actual spirit animal) and Carry On, Warrior by  Glennon Doyle Melton

I reviewed their seconds books here and here, if you’re interested.

Fresh flowers

For our anniversary, Mike gifted me with a future 3 month supply of fresh flowers. Love!! March’s batch was hand delivered from my babe (via Whole Foods) this week.

Bedroom flowers
Kitchen flowers

They are so pretty and the colors are perfect for that end of winter/beginning of spring transition. I like to spilt bouquets up and place them in different places around the house so I see them more often. 🙂

Up next? Bali! We’re leaving next Thursday so I’ll be spending the weekend packing my summer dresses and bikinis.
