F&F Friday Favorites ~ 10.10.14

Good morning!

This week I tackled one of my blog/social media projects that’s been on the good old to do list for a long time: Pinterest! I’ve had an F&F Pinterest page for a couple of years, but it was never carefully organized, and it was definitely really outdated. Well this week I had some time to create boards for all my different types of workouts and recipes so that they are easy to navigate and find. I think you guys are going to like it!


Right now the majority of my pins are my content, but moving forward I will be pinning more from other bloggers too. Do me a favor guys, click on over and follow me if you aren’t already!

For those of you who are just catching up on my posts from the week, here you go:

And now, your weekly reads! Some good ones in here today!

Friday Favorites




Blogging and Social Media

Self Image, Inspiration, Life

And that’s that.

–Let’s chat–
What’s going on in your worlds? Anyone working on any kind of project, whether it’s something at work, your home, a hobby, etc.? What’s up for the weekend?

It’s a long weekend for me! So far it’s looking like Lion King tonight > wedding dress shopping tomorrow (eek) > our friends’ baby’s baptism on Sunday, and free on Monday.

Things I’m Loving Lately: February 2012 Edition


It’s a short month, which means I’m way past “mid month.”


Here are some things I’m loving this month:

Tuna and Avocado

Anyone else think tuna and avocado make for a phenomenal pair?  I’ve steered away from my lettuce salad kicks lately and instead have been into trying out different tuna and chicken salad recipes instead.  I must say, the tuna and avocado combo has been my favorite and I’ve enjoyed it as a salad, as a sandwich, and as a wrap.

In this picture:  Tuna, avocado, chopped tomato, chopped celery, chopped red onion, ground pepper, and a little olive oil.  So delish!


I’m addicted.  Enough said.

Themed Workout Playlists for Class

I’m sure you guys have noticed these throughout my workout posts, but I’ve been totally digging using theme playlists for my classes lately.

In case you’ve missed any, here they are!

Anyone have any other suggestions for theme playlists I can use?  Inspired by Glee a couple of weeks ago, I’m already planning out a sweet Cinco De Mayo playlist for the spring.  I definitely take requests, so keep ’em coming!

Do It Yourself Projects

I still need to create a section dedicated to this on my actual blog site, but how fun are DIY projects?!

Customized Beer Bottles

Candy Jars

I hope to bring you guys more of this kinda stuff soon!

My New Face Makeup

Random, because I never post anything beauty or fashion related.  But my roommate Trina convinced me to try a new face makeup, and I must say that I really like it!

Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hr Makeup.  It’s a little expensive, $12 at CVS for this little bottle (ok maybe that’s not bad, but I literally buy the cheapest brands ever so it’s expensive to me).  But this helps me not look like a pasty ghost in the winter and the makeup goes on smooth and stays on all day, even through my gym workouts.

I’ll be buying this again, but waiting until I have a sweet CVS Extra Bucks coupon to help cut the cost.

What are you guys loving lately?  Any of the same things I am?  Anything different?  Tell me, tell me!

Off to Vermont for the long weekend!

I Caved In

Yep, I did it.

I joined Pinterest.

I told myself that I didn’t need yet another social media site to uphold, but I caved in and joined anyways.  As if Facebook, Twitter, and F&F aren’t enough!?

And what they say is true, you know.  I’m completely addicted.

My question is:  Why is there such cute stuff everywhere and why don’t I have any of it?

I do see the value in using Pinterest as a blogger.  Some people have strong opinions against bloggers pinning their own stuff, but I definitely plan on pinning some of my recipes and workout pictures here so they can link back to the Fitness & Feta homepage.  This is also a great way to remember where you saw that recipe for that delicious chocolate thing that you can’t quite remember the name of.

But anyways.  As I try to get my page going, please FOLLOW ME!

I’m off to the Boston Wine Expo with Slesh!  She is awesome and got us some complimentary passes.  Time to pretend we’re important and mingle!
