Sparkles and Sunshine: Weekly Round Up

Weekly Round Up

Friday, October 5, 2018

Happy Friday!

Another busy week done! Can anyone else believe it is October? I still feel like it was June two days ago. It is still pretty warm down here in Florida, but the temperatures are starting to cool off (finally!). I live in north Florida which means it actually gets cooler here compared to say central and south Florida. The low's are finally starting to get into the 70's and the high's are not in the 90's anymore. It feels like 90 some days because of the humidity but it's better than being 95 out plus the humidity making it feel like the 100's!

If i had to pick my favorite moment of this week (so far) it would definitely be yesterday. Yesterday I cantered without reins for the first time and I did my first lead change! Of course I'm not a pro yet, but every time I learn something new it's so exciting. All I want to do is improve every time I go out there!

Today's round up post features some awesome recipes from some incredible new food bloggers, some festive and fun entertainment articles from my personal favorite, Cosmopolitan Magazine, and, some super stylish outfit inspiration from fashion bloggers everyone should be following.

Let's get started!


So, I have a waffle maker that I really don't use as much as I should. Did you know there's also such thing as a waffle stick maker? I didn't! Hannah from Hannah Harvesting Health shared a recipe for apple pie waffle sticks that look delicious and only require 7 ingredients!

I just stumbled upon this account called 50 Dollars 7 Days. I love people who share this type of content: affordable recipes for people who are on a budget like myself. This tortellini recipe may be from August but it looks delicious and super easy to make!

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! I always try to make a filling healthy breakfast every morning before I go to work. When I stumbled upon this egg sandwich from Fit Healthy Recipes I got really excited. This recipe has so many good things to it: eggs, bacon, avocado, and cheese. I am definitely trying these soon!

I love buzzfeed's tasty account. They always share such fun recipe ideas! In honor of Mean Girls day this past Wednesday (October 3rd obviously), Buzzfeed Tasty shared the perfect Mean Girls milkshake, created by Aaron Samuels himself (Jonathan Bennett) and Nikki Martin! This milkshake is from their NEW MEAN GIRLS COOKBOOK. LIKE WHAT?! I will definitely be buying this for future girl nights and for those nights when you just need to "put it in the book." Ha!

Halloween is right around the corner, which means it's time to start thinking of your costume! Cosmopolitan shared a few simple Halloween costume ideas that can be built off of one easy prop.

To All The Boys I've Loved Before star Noah Centineo just announced something HUGE! Noah will be staring in the new Charlie's Angels! News has it, he will be one of the angel's love interests but we don't know who's yet. Truth moment: I've never seen Charlie's Angels. I know I know that's crazy! If it's on Netflix, I'll be watching it this weekend for sure in preparation for Noah's debut!

I love the Chronicles of Narnia movies. I never read the books but I really need to since the movies are so incredible. Apparently Netflix will be creating a Narnia series! I have been loving everything Netflix has been creating lately (i.e. To All The Boys I've Loved Before ha!). I think this new series is going to be great!

In a previous round up post I shared that The Hills was coming back to MTV featuring some of the same cast plus some new faces. Cosmo just released an article with some spoilers and one of them includes Mischa Barton!

I think I shared this the other day, but I used to hate camo! It's still not like my number one choice, but I have been loving a ton of styles that are out right now featuring this print. Liz Pacini shared the cutest casual look featuring this tie front camo top!

See it here:

Fall colors are everywhere and I'm loving it! One of my favorite fall dresses I've seen yet was on Ashley. She styled this orange maxi which she says would be gorgeous at a fall wedding. I couldn't agree more!

See it here:

I love robes. I think they're so cozy and comfy, especially during fall and winter. Meg Moran shared her updated Skin Routine For Dry Skin on her blog this week, but the post also featured this furry robe that I'm obsessed with!

It's no secret that I love plaid. (P.S. you'll be seeing a lot of plaid looks coming soon!). Loren Hamilton shared the cutest fall outfit the other day featuring a high neck plaid top, jeans, a beret, and leopard heels!

That's all for today's post! Stay tuned for some new posts next week, and thanks for visiting!
