The Friday Five | July 17th

by Liz Allen

Every week we'll share our favorite podcast episode, recipe, influenced item, a tip on living better everyday and something that inspired us. How much fun it that?!

After the recent Netflix binge-worthy documentary was released (don't worry more on that below) - I had to look up Zac Efron's friend and superfood guru Darin Olien. He's a laid back guy with a sweet disposition and  I'm really loving his Podcast as of late. 


I stumbled across Kiki initially on Instagram. And  post after post, she kept catching my eye. So I quickly tuned into her YouTube channel. As soon as she shared a video on how to make cheese sauce - I got the ingredients ordered and  got to the kitchen. Not only was this cheese sauce good, every recipe of hers I've tried since then has been just as good.


Mascara is something I do almost every single day. I don't quite feel ready to leave the house (or show up on Insta) without a few swipes. I just got the new Thrive Causemetics Macscara - and  I'm telling you - my life just isn't quite the same. I feel like I'm wearing lash extensions in an instant. Cannot recommend enough! 

Better Everyday:

This entire past week has been one where I've been working from home with the girls. For me, if I don't get out first thing in the morning - my chances of "fitting it in" dwindle by the hour. I've really enjoyed waking up and  immediately hitting the pavement. It's about the only me-time that I get into the day and  I'm so thankful for it. BONUS - I've also had plenty of time to catch up on my fav podcasts.


This binge-worthy documentary series on Netflix had me at Zac Efron. In Down to Earth, Zach and his buddy Darin Orien (mentioned above for his podcast) travel around the globe to explore and  further understand more sustainable ways to live. Every episode leaves you thinking - and I just can't get enough.
