Happy Friday! Hope you’ve had a great week and are looking ahead to a fantastic weekend! Here are a few glimpses into my little corner of the blogesphere…

1.) In the name of research for an article I’m writing, we had an impromptu hemp milk taste test in the RD office the other day.  I can’t say there was even one person in the room who will be buying this in the near future, but it was fun to try something new.

2.) I mentioned recently that sometimes I take a magnesium supplement—I finally restocked my favorite,  Natural Calm. This is great for dealing with headaches & pains around “that time of the month,” and also helps with sleep and stress-induced eye twitches. Since wedding season has officially kicked off in, well, all my social circles, I know I’m gonna need all the help I can get. Natural Calm

3.) On a similar note, I enjoyed a rocking steak salad for lunch the other day. The iron stores are happy. steak salad at work

4.) I have rekindled my love with Starbucks iced coffee. Ahhh, so dark & cold & bitter. Just like my heart ; )

My friend reminded me to add, “And RICH!” A woman’s heart is a deep ocean. Or something like that.

5.) A creepy yet supposedly “‘Attractive’ Gluten-Free Opportunity.” Um…

While we’re talking about gluten-free…don’t you just love guys who rhapsodize about the wonders of their gluten-free diet while they take a big swig of non-GF beer? Not like I’m jaded or drawing from experience or anything.

7.) Oh, and the red lips in the photo above—I am obsessed with this Revlon  Colorburst Balm Stain in Provacateur. Love love love. I’ve been a red lipstick girl since No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak” was on the radio every five minutes.  Who wants to feel old and do the math with me?

8.) Have you ever been so hungry you actually ate the weird microwave protein cake you improv-ed even though it kind of sucked?protein cake fail

Yeah, me neither ; )

At least it was the texture and not the taste that was off!

 What’s on your mind this Friday? What’s your favorite lipstick shade?
