Friday Faves 11.20


T  G  I  F.


1. Chopped 
Okay when I say I'm addicted to a Netflix show, it's a big deal. I'm one of those people that feel entirely guilty if I sit in my bed and binge watch shows when I very well know I could be doing 1000 other things. The other night I based my night around watching Chopped: "One more episode then I'll shower" or "I'll finish this episode then I'll get some homework done". The show itself isn't even that great but I love seeing what people come up with on the show. It's interesting to see!



2. Kevita Probiotic Drinks
I mentioned last week that I was feeling a little 'out of it' and had been getting some headaches as well as tummy aches. My mother (the organic queen) recommend I start not only taking a probiotic pill but also starting drinking probiotic drinks. They make you feel so much better and they're truly a great way to stay healthy. They come in tons of flavors as well; my favorites include blueberry cherry and lemon cayenne. It's slightly carbonated and tastes amazing, it's a nice little treat to have each day that is also really great for your body. (+They're gluten free, dairy free, and non-gmo!)



3. MY DOMAIN!
If you haven't seen my announcement on instagram, then i'm sure you noticed when you clicked on the site that I HAVE A DOMAIN NOW! After being down ALL last weekend (I was going insane without my blog) I finally am up and running. So instead of thegolddime.blogspot.com, I'm just thegolddime.com! I'm so thrilled, I feel so official!

4. African Black Soap Body Wash
I've been experiencing some acne on my chest (TMI but it happens) and when I was picking up my Kevita drinks, I thought I'd peruse the soap aisle in the organic section. (I've been really getting into going all organic with everything lately, like my toothpaste and other beauty products). I tried the black soap a few years back in the bar form when I had the same problem with acne and it really didn't help. I saw the body wash version and decided to try it again. This one has small natural exfoliants in it as well, which is great for the upcoming colder months. I noticed a different in my skin the day after I started using it. I swear it's because it's organic!



5. Iced Coffee with Peppermint 
My go-to drink this week has been a venti iced coffee with peppermint flavor from Starbucks. It's really refreshing! I'm sure you're wondering why I don't just get peppermint mocha, but to be honest, I wasn't that big a fan of it when I tried it! So this is my alternative, much cheaper too.

6. My readers + followers
When my site was down last Friday-Monday because of the domain change, I was a wreck. I was terrified I wouldn't get any posts up for a long time and would lose all my readers + support. I missed my first scheduled post for the first time since August and truly I felt like I had failed. LUCKILY after working with a ton of customer service reps and spending almost 3 hours trying to figure out why the switch was so dramatic, I got it working early Tuesday afternoon. During those few days I had so many people truly concerned with what was wrong and they were actually very sad they couldn't read my posts. I just want to say thank you to everyone who reached out to me and showed their concerns, thank you to the reps who eventually figured out the issue, and thank you to my mom who had to listen to me have a freak out each day! Luckily now I have my own domain and I'm very happy- so it was worth it!

Have an incredible weekend loves!
