Happy Friday my loves.  This week was pretty insane at work, I am really looking forward to this weekend and some much needed time off.  What are you up to this weekend?  We have one more holiday party to attend and also seeing my family.  I have a feeling this one is going to fly by!  Let’s get right into these favorites from the week.


Favorite Song

I heard this on bpm this other day and immediately fell in love.  Gareth Emery was one of my favorites to use when I taught spin. Always the prettiest vocals and then the best beat drop.  Gareth Emery & Alastor ft London Thor “Hands”.

Favorite Recipe

How good would these be Christmas morning?  Or like, right now.  Full recipe here.


Favorite Workout

Printable you can do at home over the holidays.


Favorite Purchase
