Happy Monday ladies! How was your weekend? I spent Friday morning at the #Nsale scoping out all the amazing pieces. In case you missed it, you can see everything I tried on & everything I purchased. It was definitely a successful shopping trip.
Sidenote: how beautiful are the washrooms there (below)!?
On Friday night, Marco BBQ’ed some steaks and I whipped up an easy salad. My girlfriend introduced me to this amazing home-made dressing and I’ve been making it frequently because it takes just a couple minutes to whip up:
Honey Dijon Dressing
* Small spoonful of Dijon mustard
* A small glug of olive oil
* Balsamic vinegar to taste
* Small spoonful of raw honey
Salt & pepper, if you’d like, shake–I like to use a Mason jar to make mine–and pour over salad. Toss & enjoy.
As you can see, my ‘measurements’ are very precise, ha, but just wing it and you’re good.
On Saturday morning, to my dismay, no bananas in the house! So, I improved with frozen blueberries for my fave pancakes and guess what? Not bad, not bad at all. I feel like these ones would go over better, doused in syrup, for the man in your house–or at least the man in my house (who refuses to eat the healthy banana ones!).
Saturday morning workout.
I spent Saturday afternoon filming and editing my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases video. I shared everything I bought, the sizes I chose, various features of each item + more.
Still no bananas so I switched it up with over easy eggs on avocado toast.
Sunday morning at the gym. If you missed my explanation on the tensor bandage, I hurt my wrist a week ago and it’s still not doing so well. I have to go for a follow-up x-ray to last week’s x-ray to confirm it’s indeed not broken (it would be a crack, if anything).
It’s pretty sore, so I have to get creative with my workouts (although I’ve totally cut back/been slacking). Essentially, it’s going to be a lot of lower body and cardio (ugh) for the next while. Has anyone else suffered an upper body injury? I’d love to hear your workout suggestions–as of right now, I can’t hold any weight, nor support my own weight so I’m relying on a lot of machines, resistance bands and cables.
Lastly, I just picked up this strappy sports bra in this bright orange and also in black and am in love. This pairs great under a tee or dress, and I love that since it’s a sports bra, you have that added support that bralettes don’t usually provide. Bonus: you can’t tell it’s a sports bra, and it could even pull double duty as a swim piece!
Post workout breakfast… #2.
Back at Nordstrom–eek! As if I needed to return, but I kept thinking about this jacket, wanted to browse the shoe section and go through the clothing department again. I will be sharing another round of try-ons this week of some goodies.
Did you ladies score anything yet? I found the clothing was pretty picked over when I went back, but there is still a fairly good selection online, but it’s going fast. If there is something you want, I’d suggest to scoop it up now before it’s gone forever–they told me they are not restocking any items in store!
And finally, Indian food for dinner to beat the Sunday night blues!
Hope you had a great weekend. Also, I’ve been sharing a few killer pieces from the Nordstrom sale on the A.Co Facebook page that I’m loving or as they get restocked, if you’d like to see. Hope you have a great day.
See you tomorrow!
