Who’s ready for my Nine Favorite Things this week!?

Blueberry Pancakes | @hbharvest

{Sunday morning brunch vibes…}

Hey, hi! Happy Sunday! Hope you guys are all having a great weekend! Mine started off on Friday afternoon watching my younger brother Red competing at the Burton US Open. I was supposed to head over to Vail to watch with the fam, but…the car wouldn’t start, UGHHH! So I ended up making these fajitas on Facebook Live and then squeezed in a few recipes for the blog before calling it a day!

Not sure what’s in store for today, but a little time in the sunshine is first on my list! What are you guys up to?

Jumping right in…here is my list of my top nine favorites for the week. Enjoy the Sunday reads! 🙂

1. I’ve hit that time in the winter when I start “California” dreaming…aka, I want sunshine, warm days, and green smoothies from the cutest LA juice shops. My brother Kai who lives in LA, has been soaking up their eighty degree weather the last few days and I could not be more jealous. So, when I saw this Laguna Beach, CA home I declared I needed to move in…as soon as possible. I mean, do you see that beach side pool?!?! Need it. Clearly I will not be moving in anytime soon, but a girl can dream…

PS. was The O.C anyone else’s favorite show? I was only in middle school when it was on TV, but I loved it and I totally admit to watching re-runs whenever possible.

2. A few everyday style items on my must have list…loving these jeans (need), this sweater, this fun spring dress and these shoes (my fav).

3. Have you guys ever tried making a homemade face mask? My skin has been feeling a little dry and red lately, which I’m sure is due to the cold temperatures we had this week. I came across this green tea, honey and coconut face mask and I am so curious to try it. I’ve made homemade coffee body scrubs before, but never tried a face mask. I think it’s time!

4. Favorite beauty buy this week: Boy Brow by Glossier! This was recommended to me by Ali over at Inspiralized and you guys, I am OBSESSED with it. Ever since I was a kid I have always, always been self-conscious of my eyebrows. When I was younger I thought they were way too bushy, now that I am older, I am loving a thicker brow. This product is a game changer. It’s so easy to use and will leave you with the perfect brow…trust me.

5. NEW VIDEOS! simple vegetarian skillet lasagna…can I just say that this one would make the most perfect Sunday night dinner. Again, just sayin’, but it’s so true! bulgogi BBQ chicken tacos with mango slaw…hands down, these might be some of the best tacos…like ever.

6. Are you gluten-free? If so, do you do it for health purposes or just because you think it’s “healthy”. This post on how going gluten-free can become un-healthy is spot on and filled with so much great info…i.e those gluten-free cookies are probably just as bad for you or worse than if you baked up a fresh batch of cookies yourself! I highly recommend reading this if you’re thinking of going gluten-free.

Disclaimer: I am NOT a nutritionist and totally understand that a lot of you may need to be gluten-free for health reasons. I get that, and commend you for taking charge of your health! This is just my current thoughts on eating gluten-free simply because it’s trendy or you think it may be “healthier”.

7. Here are a few links I am loving: This post on fearless women is most inspiring, especially for someone who is trying to build up a business. Loving this list of 31 Delicious Things To Cook In March. YUM. And here’s some Sunday inspiration for you, 37 Healthy Habits To Adopt Today.

8. Major bathroom tile envy. <–would love, love, love a shower like that.

9. This weeks dinners: One Pan Lemon Roasted Salmon, Potatoes and Parmesan AsparagusOne-Pan Spring Tuscan Quinoa BakeGarlic Butter Roasted Chicken Thighs with Charred Lemon Salsa VerdeSalmon Fajita Salad BoatsGreek Steak Salad French Bread with Soft Boiled EggsBroccoli Rabe Burrata Pizza.

  1. OBSESSED with the OC. Loved that show!!! I heard a rumor the other day that all the seasons are now on Hulu wooo!

  2. I’ve been so excited with Boy Brow by Glossier – it’s such a shame they still don’t ship worldwide ahh!

  3. That stack of pancakes is so pretty (can’t wait for your book!! :)). My skin needs some serious TLC, so I’m all about that face mask – love!

  4. I completely agree with your thoughts on going gluten free. It is a huge trend and I am just waiting for the negative effects to start to show up. I know many people who are self diagnosing and are eating packaged gluten free products are are looking more unhealthy and gaining weight from all the sugar and rice and other weird stuff they use for gluten replacement. I believe if you are avoiding a certain something it is best to avoid it and not try to recreate it with different ingredients.
    I also do not think that wheat flour is to blame for most people’s symptoms. It is the overly processed foods that do harm. Eat local, eat small, make it yourself. And be happy and healthy from it.
    Oh I could go on and on….

  5. I was obsessed with the OC. I have both seasons on DVD and made my hubby watch with me when we first starting dating. One of the best shows ever. Also you make me like cooking which is a freaking miracle 🙂

  6. I made the Rice Krispie pancakes and they were delicious! One batch fed 4 adults and two granddaughters as they were so rich. While doing the dishes I fess up to dipping leftover treats into the leftover syrup. So, so good.

  7. Ummmm your brother is insanely talented. Omg.
    I’m a newer reader to your blog but after seeing your talent with design and food artistry and your brother with snowboarding – I’m honestly curious about how your parents facilitated all of this creative talent within your family?
    Much success to you and yours!

    1. Wow thanks Wendy! Im not sure but they were always open to our creativeness so its awesome (:
      Hope to hear more from you!

  8. Thanks for sharing your faves! Will definitely give the Boy Brow a try. I’m hoping you posted the pancake recipe somewhere and I simply missed it. When I pressed the “Skip to the recipe” button nothing happened. Would love to have it if you can point me in the right. 🙂 Thanks!

  9. Brunch. Brunch needs to be in store for you today. Though, I’m being taken to a veggie/ vegan spot this morning, so I’m more than slightly suspicious! At least there will be Bloody Mary’s, though!

    And I totally get you with the whole California Dreaming thing when it is cold and miserable – must be a used to live in L.A. but did not grow up in a sunny place thing? However, I do also really feel it when it is really sunny here too, because I know sunny Venice with the beach and all my favourite brunch spots is so much more fun than sunny (and sweaty) London in the summer!
