Lululemon Street to Studio Jacket
I’ve had my eye on this Lulu jacket for MONTHS! I love it. So much so that I aaaallllmost spent full price on it. And that says a lot because Lulu is always a little too pricey for my wallet. A few weeks ago I was in the store and It was on sale for $64. I was ecstatic but of course, they didn’t have my size in the color I wanted. Since then, I’ve been stalking the “Lululemon – We Made Too Much” sale page waiting for this beauty to go on sale. It finally happened! I snagged it in Black, size 6. I got the black because I’ll be wearing it to work and I don’t want to look too ridiculous walking into my office – especially because I carry my Lulu teal tote with me every day too. The other colors (which I’ve seen in person) are all super cute. If I wasn’t planning on wearing it to and from work, I would have gotten the ‘faded zap’ (shown above) or the ‘pop orange’. I usually go a size up in Lulu – in shorts, pants and most tops. Anyway… the 6 fits me perfectly and it’s pretty true to size for Lulu. I wanted to make sure I had room to wear a long sleeve or t-shirt underneath. It’s super comfy and water-resistant, so it’ll be perfect for my morning bike rides into the office when it’s drizzling. I also love the hood on it. Clearly, I’m obsessed. If you can find your size/color online, I’d snag it if I were you! It’s way too good of a deal to pass up.
Can’t get enough of them lately and according to Subway, it’s avocado season. The other night for dinner I made this salad and it was amazing. 1 avocado, 2 small tomatoes, ½ ball fresh mozzarella with EVOO and balsamic vinegar dressing. Makes 2 servings! It’s super easy to make and it tastes like something you’d order at a restaurant.
Barney’s Almond Butter
I’ve tried a few different types of almond butter and Barney’s is one of my favorites. I just ordered another 16 oz. jar online from Vitacost.com for $8.81. Although it’s more expensive than peanut butter, it’s a really good price for almond butter. Some of the small containers at Whole Foods are over $10! Which is insane. While I do love peanut butter, I prefer almond butter with my fruit in the morning. One of my favorite breakfasts is a chopped up red apple, a sliced banana, Barney’s almond butter and maple pecan granola. YUM.
