Friday Favorites:Good Hair, Better Breakfasts, 4th Outfits, Shoes and Swimsuits

Today I am linking up with ErikaNarci , AndreaAmandaBright on a BudgetDella DevotedCup of Tea and By BMG for Friday favorites and sharing with you the things that I am finding Joy in this week.

1) Good Food Made Simple Egg White Patties:

So I have been trying to be Better about breakfast. I leave the house early and often eat in the car...I know...Usually I have a gluten free muffin that I made from scratch but lately I have been so hungry late in the morning and snacking a lot which is not Good.

This week I bought these egg white patties and they are very Good. At only 35 calories per serving they are a Good source of lean protein. I have been topping these with a slice of cheese, ham and putting them on a small gluten free ciabatta roll. This has been filling me up with only some fruit as a snack later morning. I think this is my new breakfast.

2) Aveda Hair Care:

Oh Aveda my old I used to go to an Aveda salon and had to break up with them about eleven years ago due to salon management and not a problem with my stylist. It was slightly traumatic and with the change I also realized that Aveda color was making my hair very dry. Over the years I have always felt that for some reason my hair is always Better when I am using Aveda products with the exception of their color.

I have been struggling with my hair for about two to three years that is either due to my lupus treatments or ahem...age. I have had trouble getting and keeping my hair straight, even some days when using a flat iron. In December, I went back to using Confixor which I have used on and off for probably fifteen years. I mix it with Smooth Infusion right when I get out of the shower and it really helps smooth my hair. In the last few weeks I have gone back to both the Rosemary Mint Shampoo and Conditioner and finish off with the Brilliant Hair Spray.  Honestly, it has been a long time since my hair has looked this Good. It blows out nicely and there is very little frizz. I think I need to keep this up.

3) Athleta Swimsuit:

I needed a new swimsuit this year and I have always been a fan of the Athleta swimsuits. The have the right amount of coverage without looking too "mom like." I picked up the Montauk Tankini top  and paired it with the shirred bottom in black.

4) Red, White and Blue Outfits: 

It's that time of year to get your Fourth of July outfit ready. Here are some looks I am loving to look your Best and so many of them are on sale.

5) Oka B Grace sandals:

I have mentioned that I am struggling with plantar fasciitis and have had trouble finding sandals this summer. I did well with the Sperry's  I picked up last week but needed flip flops that were more appropriate for the beach and pool.

I have a pair of Oka B flats that have been a Good commuter shoe for me this spring so I decided to try the Oka B Grace Sandals in navy.  Not only are they comfortable, they are so cute. So far so Good, and I hope that these will continue to be a Better choice for me.

I hope you all have a Good weekend!
