Friday Favorites

I haven’t done one of these in a while!

Here are a couple of things that I’ve been loving lately!

1. Chocolate Zucchini Banana Bread

I found this recipe on the blog ‘Running with Spoons’. I love zucchini bread and I love banana bread….combining them just makes sense! I substituted spelt flour (it’s what I had) and used chocolate chips from Trader Joe’s (they are bigger than Toll House)-it turned out amazing! I’ve been telling myself the zucchini and banana make it healthy as I consume ridiculous amounts in one sitting.

2. Sigma Makeup Brush Cleaning Mitt

Thanks to Fleur de Force’s beauty vlog, I became obsessed a few months ago with the idea of using a cleaning mat for my makeup brushes. But because I was abroad I (tortuously) waited to get home before ordering. Fleur praises the mat; I decided to order the mitt for an even easier clean. This is GAME CHANGING. The textures on the mitt deep cleanse your brushes so much better than the back of your hand. I mix Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Liquid Soap (the peppermint is my favorite) with a bit of microwaved coconut oil (read: liquid form) . DIp your brush in the soap then follow the directions printed on the mitt to wash, rinse and refine before setting the brushes on a paper towel to dry.
