Monthly Faves Link Up || April 2015


Happy day after Cinco, anyone get tequila wasted last night? I made turkey burgers, tried out a new self tanner and relaxed at home. #partyanimal
It's that time again, time to share what we were all loving in the month of April. Grab a button below, only if you want to of course, and join in with Kelli and I for our April 2015 favorites.


Make Me Up Mia


:: Food ::


MusclePharm Combat Crunch Protein Bars- I'm a Quest bar girl but wanted to give these a try. Not kidding when I say they are candy bars with protein, too good... 

Fiber One brownies- Can you tell I'm a "sweet over salty" kind of gal? These are good when you're craving that occasional sweet treat, 90 calories and great macros. I've had several of the flavors, they've all been delicious. 

Eat Well Embrace Life Tuscan White Bean Hummus- They make a black bean one that is so so so good, but I can no longer find it. I saw this at Sprouts and decided to try it, it's delicious. I eat it with my baby carrots, one of my favorite snacks right now. 


:: Wear ::

Mossimo skinnies from Target- I recently bought these, these & these and I love them all. They have a great selection, they're affordable and fit me like a glove. Clearly, I'm a fan... 

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat- I have been fed up and determined to find a way to make the paint on my nails last longer than 1 day. Yes, I love my CND polishes but I also have a ton of regular polish to use as well. I'm still playing with this one, but so far my Essie polishes have definitely lasted a lot longer using this one on top. In case you're wondering, you don't use a light or anything with it.

:: Watch ::
Younger on TV Land- I've been a Hilary Duff fan since the Lizzie McGuire days, anyone with me? I was excited to see this show starting and so far I'm loving it. A 40+ year old women has to make her way back into the working world after being a stay at home mom and her husband leaving her for another women. Nobody is interested in hiring a middle aged women with no work experience so she takes the advice of her friend and pretends to be a 26 year old. It works and the rest is a hot mess express, pretty entertaining.

What are you currently watching or eating?

  2. I never heard of combat bars, are the similar to quest in the amount of calories/sugar/fiber/protein? I haven't had Fiber One stuff for awhile but good to know the macros are good! I will have to look in to those. And I too have been trying to find something to keep my polish on longer!!! I have a Julep gel top coat that works pretty decent but not amazing, so next time I am out I will look for that one. For some reason I was thinking the sally gel stuff required something extra. Good to know they dont!

  3. Thanks for hosting another fun link up, and sharing some fab things I'm now making a mental note to keep an eye out for! ;) I love Fiber One chocolate PB brownies! I didn't know they made a mint fudge version - yum! (I'm a sweet over salty kinda gal too, so totally appreciate these picks! ;)) Thank you, thank you for sharing a top coat that you've found extends the life of your essie manis!! I've been loving my new spring polish shades, but hate how briefly they last! I'll definitely track down that top coat goody & give it a try. :) Have a terrific day, Mia! Xx

  6. I need to start watching younger! I'm in need of some new skinnies so I'll have to check those out! Are they stretchy? Stretchy jeans tend to end up "too big" for me.

  12. I love Target's jeans! They are so comfy! And the Fiber One bars are pretty much my favorite snack ever. The cookies are SO good! I need to watch Younger. I love Hillary Duff, she's so cute!

  13. I've tried the Sally Hansen gel but not just the top coat, I might give that one a try. I was using gelous for a while but it doesn't seem to be working for me anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I have been curious about that Sally Hansen Gel Polish that doesn't use a light, I never thought about using it with your regular polishes, glad to hear its working. A protein bar that tastes like a candy bar sounds right up my ally, thanks for hosting!

  15. Those combat bars and Fiber One brownies look amazing! I need to grab those! I've heard Younger is great!

  16. I love the fiber one bars! I haven't tried the mint ones though, may have to check that out the next time I go to the store. And that nail polish, I don't paint my nails because the nail polish always fades so quickly.

  25. I've heard more people talk about that gel/top coat!
    I need to check out those jeans. I'm always looking for good skinnies!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have heard such great things about that EatWell hummus I really need to check it out!

    ReplyDelete
  27. If it tastes like candy, but it actually healthy, it might be worth a try! I'm so picky when it comes to flavors and bars, but these sound promising. I've been catching reruns of Younger every now and then and it is a good show. I was a huge Lizzie McGuire fan so I totally relate!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Great favs! I have to return a dress at Target, so I'll definitely check out those jeans! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Do those white skinnies have rips in them? I've been looking for a pair of comfortable white skinnies forever but they all seem to be super cropped (which looks awkward on me since I'm so tall) or they're destroyed which I don't want!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I have to find those jeans at my Target! I also need to get those bars, I have been in such a Quest bar rut and need something new. Where did you get yours?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh, I need to get on the Younger train! I've heard it's so good! Thanks for the gel top reco too, because going home means FINALLY getting some good top coat -- hallelujaaahh!! Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yep, picking up that white bean hummus on my next grocery trip!

    ReplyDelete
  33. that hummus sounds interesting--never had white bean hummus but have had black bean. i'll look for it!

    ReplyDelete
  34. this is so fun! I definitely have to join in next time! That white bean hummus looks delicious and I'm guilty of tuning in to Younger too!

    ReplyDelete

    totally checking out those target skinnies! you had me at affordable. and white bean hummus? yum!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I don't like hummus (texture) but I wish I did! It always looks so good in pictures and recipes but yuck no thanks. I absolutely love Younger, I think it's so funny and honestly I'm so glad Hilary is back! Her new single is pretty good too! I follow her on Instagram and she's always got something sily going on, or pictures of her adorable son Luca.

  39. I used to love Lizzie McGuire too- I'll have to see if I can catch Younger on sometime! I went through a phase where I was obsessed with the fudge & lemon versions of those brownies! I think you might have recommended them to me! The mint flavor sounds delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love all the Fiber One things, but they always upset my stomach... I need to try that top coat! I love the SCD stuff too, but have other ones like you that it would be nice to be able to make work.
