Five Favorites: Protein, a Lens and a Beautiful Post

Joining in with Hallie and everyone else at Moxie Wife today for...

Five Favorites, hosted at

These little protein bars taste more like a no-bake cookie.  They don't leave that funny too-much-protein feeling nor do they taste chalky.  They're a great little afternoon pick-me-up!

My sweet cousin got me this set for my birthday a few months ago, and I really love these creams.  They are basically a tinted sunscreen with a bit more coverage, and they go on very smoothly!

Starbucks® Cold Cup, 24 fl oz

I haven't filled this giant cup up with iced coffee yet, but I wouldn't put it past me.  So far it's just a way to make sure I get enough water each day.  Anyone else find it much easier to drink more when you're drinking it through a straw?  Bizarre?  Maybe so, but it works for me!

A friend of mine let me borrow this for a few months.  What a friend, huh!!  I love it!  I'm not great with figuring out how to get the most out of different kinds of lenses, but this one allows for more light in my house that often doesn't have enough.  It takes me awhile to get used to not having a zoom, but I do love this lens. I'm anxious to learn a little more about what all it can do and just play with it.

{5} Jenny's post Let's Be Done from yesterday is about as beautiful as they come and one of my all-time favorites!

Have a great day and don't forget to check out the other links at Moxie Wife today!!


  1. Oh, I want to try out the lens too! I LOVE my 50mm 1.8 lens (cheapie), so I think this one just take it up a notch!

  2. Totally agree with the straw theory. I have a 32oz tumbler and I can down 3 or 4 of them in a day no prob!

  3. You look gorgeous, yet again! And yes, I agree on the straw thing. I got a tumbler like that a while back and it's SO much easier to drink a couple of them a day at work than before!

  4. Love the Starbucks tumbler! We have FOUR of them and use them for smoothies. The only way I can drink smoothies, haha. They are awesome. Also- I really want a 35mm lens. I have a 50mm but it's a little too zoomed in for taking millions of pictures of my baby in the house ;) I love a low f stop though! Finally, Jenny's post was gold. Pure gold.

  5. I'm all about the straws too! I swear by my Tervis tumbler. It doesn't have a straw, but I always use one anyway. I just seems so much easier to drink that way.

  6. thanks for the shout out!

    I'm an avowed straw drinker too. And may I just say, when I read your contribution to the buzz feed piece a couple weeks back, I think I developed an immediate mom crush as soon as I picked my jaw up off the floor. Too much?
