5.17 Friday Faves – The Fitnessista

Hi friends! Happy Friday! How was the week? I hope you had a wonderful one. The kids officially have one week left of school (YESSSSSSS) and we’re all counting down the days. This weekend we have dinner with friends, a concert, dance activities, and all the chores. I hope you have a lovely weekend, too!

It’s time for the weekly Friday Faves party! Here’s this week’s roundup, and I always love to hear about your faves, too if you’d please shout out something you’re loving below.

5.17 Friday Faves


Mother’s Day advetnures. It was the best day with my favorite people, doing so many of my favorite things. I woke up early, and while everyone was still sleeping, I went to the farmer’s market to stroll around and get some meat for Maisey’s dog food. When I got home, I got to open amaizng cards from the family, and then we set off for brunch at Hacienda del Sol.

Hacienda has become one of our favorite special occasion brunch spots (we also love date night on the patio with the live piano music), and they have a legendary spread. They truly go for quality over quantity with the best prime rib, veggies, charcueterie, pasta, omelet station, a huge seafood spread, desserts for days, multiple mimosa flavors and a full bar, and live Spanish guitar. Some friends who are like family joined us, and it was the perfect morning.

(so many gf desserts!)

After brunch, we did the tour de Tucson, dropping off flowers and cards for my mom, nana, stepmom, and other nana 🙂 We came home, where I rode the spin bike and then took a glorious little nap. We met up with friends at the pool at Ventana for pizza, swimming, and margaritas.

I also had some excited news to share with you guys: earlier this week, EquiLife and IHP announced that I was chosen as one of their five IHP champions for the year.

There are over 5,000 Integrative Health Practitioners worldwide, so this has been a huge honor and I feel so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this incredible community. It’s changed my life and health in the best possible way, and I feel blessed to share what I’ve learned with others. I’ve never had a huge goal with the blog or what I do online; all I’ve wanted to do was help, serve, and connect with others. It’s been so fun to see how it’s grown and changed over time!

To celebrate this milestone, I wanted to share a special testing discount with you (20 available and discount ends Sunday):

Head to this link and you’ll get $100 off a Starter Kit (my two favorite foundational labs, and ones that I read every day with clients!), a customized action plan, and access to my Vitality course.

We did just one of these labs when Liv was younger and it was a thousand dollars through a local naturopath. You’re getting two labs, an action plan, and tons of bonuses for a fraction of that price.

If you’ve been on the hamster wheel, doing the same things, not seeing changes or results, it doesn’t have to be like this. Let’s do a deep dive together and uncover some deficiencies, toxicities, and work to rebalance your body so you can feel your absolute best.

Sign up here – the discount code is already applied for you! *Note: labs cannot be shipped to New York or Washington State at this time. If you’re international, please let me know and we can calculate shipping costs.

Fashion + beauty:

You guys. I’m blown away by all of your amazing support of Oliveda since I joined the company a couple of weeks ago. These products are so good and I can’t wait to hear about how much you’re loving them! Word on the street is that my very favorite serum (aka Botox in a bottle) will be restocked this weekend, too.

I was pretty disappointed about the end of Beautycounter, but feel like it’s actually been a blessing. I feel so aligned and connected with Olive Tree; the products are gorgeous, clean, and perform very well. You can browse products here, and you can check out our skincare quiz for customized recs. 

Oliveda has exploded in the past month (you can read this incredible article!) so they have increased production to match the demand. Inventory should be more consistent, but I’ll keep you updated as things are replenished, too.

Read, watch, listen:

BRIDGERTON. I very rarely watchy TV but I alwayyyys make time for Bridgerton. I’ll watch the episodes in my sauna blanket or on my walking pad. (Also, I made a free list of my fave wellness essentials if you’d like to grab it here.

The new Wicked trailer. I may have shed a tear.
