Boyfriend Jeans

I've had two pairs of boyfriend jeans for a few years now and I just recently started wearing them. Just like my military jacket, what took me so long?! They're way easier to pull off than I originally thought, not to mention super comfy. And you can easily dress them up or down. Come to think of it, probably a great staple piece for a day to night look. I styled mine here with a loose fitting off the shoulder shirt, flats & a necklace. I'd love to style them next time with a more form fitting top.

Weekending

Summer, you're moving too fast. Slow down! Am I right?! I'm linking up with Meghan & Biana  for a weekend recap.
Weekending

My cousins & I got together Friday night and ended up playing a classy game of Kings Cup with wine. By the way how cute are those coasters?!

I went on a walk Saturday night and got to snap some pics of the gorgeous sunset :)


My favorite part of Sunday is watching this new show called Rising Star. Its a singing competition that started a few weeks ago. I know there's a gazillion singing competitions on t.v. nowadays but what makes this one different is the viewers at home are voting live on a mobile voting app. Overall the concept is cool and I'm already invested so I HAVE to finish the season hahaha. Does anyone else watch this show?! My vote is on Macy Kate.



Hope you all had a good weekend ,

Banana Chocolate Overnight Oatmeal

I love oatmeal but lets be real, sometimes we get sick of eating the same thing over and over again. And warm oatmeal during the summer months doesn't always appeal to me SO I was really excited when my cousin introduced me to overnight oatmeal. What is it you ask?  A mixture of oatmeal, chia seeds, & yogurt with your mix-in of choice. Refrigerate overnight & voila! A cold, nutritious, and convenient breakfast!

Do a quick Pinterest search and you'll find tons of recipes. Most can easily be made gluten and dairy free. The oats I made are based off a recipe from yummylife.com 

Ingredients
1/4 cup rolled oats (gluten free oats can be substituted)
1/3 cup skim milk (or almond milk)
1/4 cup low-fat yogurt (optional)
1 teaspoon dried chia seeds
1 tablespoon cocoa powder ( I used dark chocolate)
1 banana

Directions
Mix oats, milk, yogurt, chia seeds, chocolate, and banana. Put lid on container and mix well. Refrigerate overnight & eat chilled.



Do you have any overnight oat recipes?!

Ash

Friday Link Up

HAPPY FRIDAY FRIENDS! I'm really excited about today's post because I'm finalllly participating in of my favorite bloggers Friday link up. Seriously if you haven't read Meet @ the Barre go check it out. I look forward to Amanda's posts every week! They're hilarious & she always has great beauty products, fashion, & travel tips to share. Alright, here it goes! Some of my Friday favorites:

Favorite discovery-
Is anyone signed up with the Starbucks rewards program? When you reach green status you're eligible for free refills on brewed/iced coffee, and tea. Considering I’m on an iced coffee kick, it was the perfect time to find this out! Heads up one thing - you technically have to have already been sitting in the store in order to get your free refill but many locations will bend that rule & give you the refill if you walk in with your used cup. 

Favorite new food-
Overnight oats. Healthy & delicious. My cousin recently made some for me & I loved them! Banana with dark chocolate overnight oats recipe will be up next week.

Favorite new beauty product- The Clarisonic. It is a tad pricey but with my skin recently deciding to fall off the deep end, I decided to splurge and give it a shot. I'm using the Acne brush head & cleanser. I'm on day two can already say my skin seems to appear less oily. Does anyone else use a Clarisonic??

Favorite song-
"Am I Wrong" by Nico & Vinz. I can't get enough of it!!! The beat, the lyrics...ugh its just so good! I feel like the radio has been playing it just the right amount, like ohh there's that song I like and not omg its already played out amount of times. Am I wrong? Get it? Hahahah. Bad joke

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!!!
