and I thought I’d throw in some beauty product love! A recent trip to CVS for dry shampoo resulted in this:

…why is it I can never leave with just what I needed! The suave dry shampoo is my favorite so far that I’ve tried. It works good and smells great, make up triangles, Physicians Formula bronzer (I love their eye shadow too), and a curling iron! I’ve been watching too many of this girl’s videos and am feeling inspired! I am terrible with the curling iron though! Help!!!

In case you missed them, here’s a quick recap of last week’s recipes:

Fall Vegetable Soup

Wow, Danielle, your meal prep always look so organized! When I do meal prep I cuold never take a picture, its’ like a bomb exploded in the kitchen! :-) I need to cut back the sweets a bit, so I think I go without this week – nevertheless there is loads of healthy stuff that tastes great too!

That’s awesome you’re able to find grass fed beef and butter – I can’t find those anywhere around here! :(

I’m always so impressed with how much meal prep you do on weekends. I need to start doing that more!

I got mine at Whole Foods! It seems to be getting easier to find lately!

Amanda @ .running with spoons. November 5, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Oh girl I’m the queen of not being able to leave the store with only the items that I need. I walk in for some milk and walk out with 3 bags of groceries. And I’m not even going to mention what happens when I walk into a store with beauty products. Not.good. Thanks for the link love, hun <3 Hope your week is off to an awesome start.

danielle November 5, 2012 at 5:59 pm

Hahaha Target is the worst for me! I can never leave with just one thing! Happy Monday!

Reply

danielle November 5, 2012 at 6:00 pm

Never tried that kind! Totally agree with you! I love muffins!

Reply

Rachel November 5, 2012 at 4:20 pm

Reply

danielle November 5, 2012 at 6:00 pm

It’s such a challenge not to!

Reply

Lisa November 5, 2012 at 4:21 pm

Yay for a curling iron! I love curling my hair ha ha. If that wasn’t obvious. Yep, I’m always walking in with just wanting to get one thing and leave with at least 6 other things, my wallet isn’t too happy. Oops! I vote on muffins, since I don’t have a donut pan:) And thank you for the link love!!

Reply

danielle November 5, 2012 at 6:01 pm

I’m going to need some help with the curling iron! I am the worst at curling my hair!

Reply

Lisa November 5, 2012 at 7:21 pm

I’m working on a vlog since it’s been so requested, so hopefully it can help you out:) Hopefully I can get that up soon. And I just realized you bought pumpkin seeds, you need to try pumpkin seed butter. I can’t stop eating it! Ha ha. It’s amazing!

Reply

danielle November 5, 2012 at 8:37 pm

Yay! Can’t wait for that!

I want a donut so badly now!!!

Reply

Giselle@ahealthyhappyhome November 5, 2012 at 7:00 pm

Okay, I’m going to HAVE to try that baked apple. It looks so good! I also need to try dry shampoo! I hate washing my hair everyday but I have super fine long hair that gets really oily if I don’t. Have a good Monday!

Reply

danielle November 5, 2012 at 7:08 pm

Thanks Giselle glad you like the recipe! I have the opposite problem as you! My hair is super dry so if I wash it too much it gets even worse! Definitely try the dry shampoo though! It’s amazing!

danielle November 5, 2012 at 8:37 pm

I know they look amazing! Have a great day too!

Eva @ committed2nutrition November 5, 2012 at 9:46 pm

Your meals and groceries are always superb!! I get such good ideas on new findings from you, too.. so keep them coming! I LOVE dry shampoo – I so need it since being a blonde, I really shouldn’t wash my hair everyday because the color then fades. Also, curling irons rock – the key to making it stay is to use hair spray. At least that’s what works for me! Hope you’re having a good start to the week :)

Reply

danielle November 6, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Hmm I’ll have to try the hair spray trick! Thanks!

Brittany @ Delights and Delectables November 5, 2012 at 10:53 pm

I LOVE their precut butternut squash! So worth it!

Reply

Totally! Can’t wait for trader joe’s to come out with the diced butternut squash!

Love the grocery recap – its like peeking into your carriage without looking like a creeper at the store ;)

I like that Suave dry shampoo, too! Such a great invention!

Reply

danielle November 6, 2012 at 3:01 pm

Hahaha I know I’m always curious what everyone else gets lol!

danielle November 6, 2012 at 3:01 pm

I’ll have to check out that brand! Never heard of it!

Kierston November 6, 2012 at 2:10 am

I need some conditioner real bad! Dry shampoo? I think this may come in handy more often than not!

Reply

danielle November 6, 2012 at 3:02 pm

You would love it! It’s such a lifesaver for me!

I always love your marvelous Monday link love! Peanut butter cup mini donuts are calling my name; those are a MUST make (but only after I buy that donut pan and make your version first, of course!). :-D

I’m the same way at CVS; I never walk out with just one item! There’s always *something* there I need. ;) Your new curling iron looks like fun! <3 xoxo

danielle November 6, 2012 at 3:03 pm

I’m dying to try the PB cup donuts! How amazing do they look?!
