Total Basset Case: 5 on Friday

5 on Friday

You know when you have all of those random thoughts in your head and you just need to get them out?
I am certain that is where 5 on Friday posts derived from.

1.  NYX Butter Gloss Lip Gloss
I have really been into bright lip glosses and lip sticks lately.
But these Butter Glosses from NYX are really my favorite.
They are thick, bright and stay on forever.
Not too mention the colors are fantastic and only $5.
So far I have Peaches and Cream and Red Velvet (how fun are those names?)

My friend Molly started a blog recently and it is all sorts of fashion fabulousness. 
Fashion Veggie is equal parts doggie loving, eco friendly fashion and daily outfit inspirations.
So basically a lot of things I really love rolled into one.
Not too mention Molly is one of the sweetest girls you could ever meet.
I say you check her out asap! 
I would follow her instagram too if I were you!

3.  Mileage 
I am finally able to get some mileage conquered with running again.  (Knock on wood) I have had minimal pain while running and I am really hoping that continues.  I am slowly trying to build back up to where I was.  It has (and is) a slow process but boy does it feel good to be back out there!
Seeing Floyd's face in the window when I come home doesn't hurt either.

4.  Spring Styles
Is it me or is there SO much cute stuff out right now?
My #lillyfortarget stuff arrived and I am in love.
Nordstrom (per usual) is killing it, Loft has the cutest patterned shorts (on sale!), Old Navy has some fantastic dresses (also on sale!) and just about everywhere else I turn has cute stuff too!
My closet doesn't hate it.  Though my wallet does...

5.  Snackin
 Because I can't have sugar, evening snacks are somewhere I really struggle.
Not having ice cream or froyo after dinner in the Spring/Summer is HARD.
Recently I have been working up my own sweet snack before bed.  It is nowhere like ice cream but it is mostly fitting the bill.  Although I would give A LOT (and I mean a lot) of money to be able to eat a DQ Blizzard.

Any fruit, granola and honey...sweet and filling! 
I could seriously eat an entire pineapple every day.

Love a new blog to read - and how great is her skirt?! And you know I totally feel you on the annoyingness of the slow return, but so great that you're starting to get in some miles again! Feels sooo good. And yay for happy mail - those patterns are just so cheerful.

Ohh I can't wait to check out Fashion Veggie!!! And I love the butter glosses! I've been wearing Vanilla Cream Pie a ton lately!

That great you were able to get some of the Lilly for Target stuff. Every time I see someone posting their goods I'm like, Oh I wish I had gotten that...ha! Those Loft shorts are really cute too. Oh and I feel you on the No-Sugar desserts. I've tried making some Acai bowls with granola, fruit and honey. I'm still working on perfecting my recipe, but they are pretty similar to what you are making. Hope you have a great weekend!

Jealous of your Lilly for Target gear! The sales rep basically laughed in my face when I showed up at Target 20 minutes after opening. There were a few returns when I was there the other day but by then I had figured I could live without a single deck chair or a hammock (plus I had no way to transport the hammock!).

Love all that Lilly gear ;) And I just started following Molly on Instagram. I will probably be insanely jealous of all her fancy outfits--I have 0 fancy anything :(
