The Friday Five | July 31st

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?!


For several months, I've been hearing about the gals from the Almost 30 Podcast. I finally listened to my first podcast episode, and feel like I've struck gold. The first episode I chose was "Five Tips for Body Acceptance" and it was such a great listen. Such a down-to-earth perspective, it was an easy listen with several tips that I've already began to focus on!


If you're ever in the mood to make your next Monday meatless, this Heart of Palm ceviche is amazing. 

  • Heart of Palm
  • Cilantro
  • Lime Juice
  • Tomatos
  • Onions
  • Avocado
  • Pinch of Salt / Pinch of Garlic Powder to taste


When Katy Roach invited her followers their favorite random Amazon finds - we were all ears! A follower shared this Diamond Dazzler Stik and what a great purchase it is indeed!

Better Everyday:

I'm always trying to channel my inner-bookworm. Unfortunately, the inner-bookworm is pretty deep. I ordered a great little haul of my favorite type of books from the library, and have really enjoyed being surrounded by books that are up-my-alley. Being surrounded by books sure is a great way to encourage that good habit ;) 


We originally found The Havenly through Juli at @paleomg when she started designing her new home. We've really enjoyed following them - we get so much inspiration for our own homes - not to mention it's all fun to look at.
