Friday Favorites 10/31/14: Week 5

Happy Halloween! Any exciting celebrations planned?  I'm looking forward to passing out candy to trick or treaters, relaxing and gaining an extra hour of sleep with the time change.  Plus, it's time for Friday Favorites!  A collection of my favorite Food, Finds, Fashion, Fitness and Fun.  I've joined the party that Housewife Glamour started, so don't let the fun stop here. I love sharing all my Friday favorites and can't wait to hear some of yours.

Housewife Glamour

Fashion - Urban Decay Vault 
  • This the ultimate beauty jackpot - the Naked Vault.  All of the Naked palettes, matching eyeliners, blush palettes and lip gloss?  I own all three Naked palettes and I'm obsessed.  The eyeshadows all provide beautiful coverage and are warm and velvety.  This collection should move to the top of your beauty wish list!  Don't want to splurge for this set?  I highly recommend picking up a Naked palette during your next Sephora run.  The colors are versatile enough to plan plenty of work appropriate looks and also more glamourous eyes and a night out on the town. 

Food - Slow Cooker Style 

  • My new favorite slow cooker meal. Chicken breasts + Frank's wing sauce + 1 tbsp organic butter + 1 tsp garlic = incredible.  I'm all about easy meals.  I shredded the chicken, added it to a gluten-free pita and topped it with a little cheese.  You could serve this over rice, in taco shells, mix with cream cheese for a dip... the possibilities are endless really.

Fitness - Heart Rate Monitors

  • Looking for a way to take your workout up a notch?  Invest in a heart rate monitor.  I love my Polar FT4!  It's pretty basic, which is fine by me :)  It tracks my heart rate during exercise and gives the calories burned.  It has a few additional features that I don't use (hey, just being honest!) but the best part for me is the heart rate monitor.  By monitoring my heart rate, I'm able to know when I'm physically able to push myself harder but on the flip side, I'm also able to know when I'm pushing my body too hard.  It will help you step up your workouts a notch and help you to notice improvements in your fitness.  Since I started using the Polar last year, I've noticed how much faster my heart rate recovers once I started incorporating interval training.  Heart rate monitors for the win!  Bonus: The cool cake it will show if you workout on your birthday :) 
Finds - Gluten-free Halloween Candy

Fun - Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween!! Have a fun and safe night :)
