Sparkles and Sunshine: Weekly Round Up

Weekly Round Up

Friday, September 28, 2018

Happy Friday!

While this week has been insane, it's been insane in a good way. We moved into a new apartment, I had a few personal "wins" this week, and I started a new horse series on my blog yesterday. If you missed the post, click here to read it! I am very excited about what the next few months have in store and I can't wait to share it with all of you.

For anyone who is new to my blog, every Friday I share a weekly round up post. The purpose of this post is to support other bloggers that my readers may/may not already know about. I believe that everyone should support each other and what better way to do that then to showcase someone's hard work! I feature lifestyle bloggers, food bloggers, fashion bloggers, travel bloggers, and more. Below are this week's round up articles. I hope you love them!

Food:

Where are all my sweet potato lovers at? I really wish I liked them. I've tried them multiple times and I just can't get my taste buds to agree with my head. But, for those of you that do like them, Erin Christ shared these Japanese sweet potato bites that are layered with avocado, cherry tomatoes, hemp hearts, and EBTB seasoning! Check it out below.

I have never heard of sunflower butter! I feel like nowadays you can make anything out of anything, which can be really cool (if it tastes good ha!). Chelsey from Citnutrionally.com shared a recipe for a sunflower butter, banana, avocado sandwich that honestly sounds really interesting. I think this is going to be one of those things that you just have to try and surprise yourself by the flavors! Get the full recipe below.

Who else loves eating salad because of the croutons? ME! Ok, I love the salad part too. But, is there really anything better than homemade garlic croutons? Abby Cannon from Abby's Food Court shared a recipe for this on her Instagram this week that is so simple. I'll definitely be trying this out sometime.

Heidi Klum is the queen of Halloween. Every year she has the most killer costume! This week she revealed a sneak peak of this year's Halloween costume and the clip has everyone buzzing. Since she's basically capable of anything, no one knows what it's going to be. Tap the link below to see the clip!

Fashion:

I am so glad that velvet wasn't only on-trend for a short period of time. I mean, what's better than fashion that's soft and comfortable? Um, nothing! Gabriella Zacche shared the cutest emerald green velvet shorts on her Instagram this week and honestly, I want the entire outfit. Check it out!

It's tradition in my house to get new pajamas at Christmas. However, after seeing these cute pumpkin spice pajamas from Alexis Buck, I think I might have to edit that rule to be before and on Christmas day! Check out these adorable pj's below.

We've all wanted that fairy tale dress before right? The pretty lace or flower details, the flowy, wispy tulle at the bottom. Well, that dress became real the second I saw this post from Daniela Canny. I truly believe that I have fallen in love with a dress!

I honestly want to quote Gossip Girl with this one just because of her name haha! So here it goes: Roos Vandekerckhove was spotted in Downtown LA in an emerald green suit set from Pretty Little Thing. Will she run into Dan later? I'll never tell. Xoxo, Sparkles and Sunshine. 

Haha! I couldn't resist!
