Welcome to my first Friday Favorites post!  I’m excited to share a few of the things I’ve been obsessed with lately.

Starbucks Iced Passion Tea

The coffee where I work is less than desirable (and that’s putting it kindly).  Lately, I’ve been left with a horrible coffee aftertaste in my mouth from bad coffee, bad creamer (the powdered cheap stuff) and it leaves me wanting something iced and refreshing.  Enter passion tea.  I’ve been hitting up Starbucks on my lunch break and getting this refreshing drink.  Since I’m a special card member–green, not gold (yet..), I get free refills on tea when I stay on site!  Which is perfect if just one glass isn’t enough or if I’m still tired and want to refill with green tea.

What’s your favorite Starbucks drink?



Earlier this week I made my stuffed bell pepper recipe, which was delicious and left me with lots of leftovers!  I ended up cooking some shrimp and tossing it with the rest of the leftovers and had this for 2 more meals!  Tasted great.  Although, if you microwave quinoa as a leftover, I would HIGHLY recommend putting a paper towel over the plate–a lot of my quinoa splattered while reheating, leaving quite a mess.

Essie Lavendar Nail Polish

Unfortunately, the name of this nail polish escapes me, but I’m still obsessed with it!  I love Essie and wish I could every color in its colleciton.  I bought this one a few months ago and still love it.   Currently, I’ve been super busy and my nails have been polish free for probably 4 days–definitely the longest they’ve been bare for awhile.  Will definitely have to paint them this color soon!

Egg White Omelet with Veggies

Confession: I’ve had this two times in a 3 day period–once out for brunch and once at home.  It tasted so good!  I sauteed up some zucchini, onions, mushrooms, and then added some tomatoes in and topped it with salsa.  So good, so fast, and so easy!  Another confession: I didn’t take pictures of my omelets, so that lovely picture is not mine 😦
