Ever since I first started making my own protein bites, I can’t possibly buy them. Although yesterday, my friend Diane stopped by with a little cup of the most delicious Chocolate Macaroon Bites from Myx Creative Kitchen in Greenwich, CT. We knew we had to figure out how to make them. I think these are pretty close and I added Primal Kitchen Chocolate Coconut Collagen Fuel and a drop of Peppermint Essential Oil.

Here’s my Friday Favorites for the week!
Read Receipts Newsletter for Book Lovers
My daughter Madeline Diamond and her friends, Courtney Wren and Kelsey Borovinsky have started a bi-monthly newsletter. If you love to read, you won’t want to miss it!
They are wonderful girls that I’ve had the pleasure of knowing for years. Madeline and Kelsey met in freshman English at Dana Hills High School in Southern California and Madeline and Courtney are friends from Bucknell University. They now all live (separately) in NYC and together attend as many author events as they possibly can at the Indie book store, Books are Magic in Brooklyn and write about their favorite books.
My Favorite Wide Leg Pants
I was a slow adapter to the wide leg pants…which is strange, because I’m tall. Madewell has the perfect wide-leg pant. The Slimm Emmet Wide-Leg Crop pant and it comes in petite, regular and tall. They are not too wide, but you’ll instantly feel a little more current with the trends.
bubble-Up Soap Dispenser for your Kitchen
When I visited Mary Ann Classic Casual Home in San Francisco last week I loved her Bubble-Up dish soap dispenser. It’s a little dish with a brush that stores the soap, so when you need it, it’s right there! It’s made with renewable bamboo and recycled plastic. She insisted I get one…so I did.
A New Side Table from Serena & Lily
The new Turnbridge side table from Serena & Lily is so charming. It’s made of rattan, but still a little modern, in a softer way. It would work in almost any situation and that’s when you know you have a great table. You could use it beside a chair, between a pair of chairs, as a bedside table…in any room.
Double Buckle Birkenstock
Birkenstock just keeps coming out with new and improved options. I am loving these Arizona suede double-buckle Birkenstocks.
It’s just about time to put away my favorite gray wool Vince sneaker and maybe replace them with a pair of these for the summer. These are the most comfortable casual sneaker I’ve ever worn. Madeline and I both have a pair. They last forever and all they need to look like new every so often is a good scrub with a Magic Eraser around the sole of the shoe.
My favorite oil this week
By now you know how obsessed I am with essential oils, I use them everyday and can’t imagine a day without them. My favorite oil this week is peppermint. I use the Peppermint Vitality Oil in my favorite smoothie, in our diffusers and sometimes during the day, I’ll just put a drop in the palm of my hand, rub together and then breathe deeply to clear my head. I instantly feel invigorated. It’s great while working on a difficult task, while driving lost distances…really anytime you need a burst of energy. If you want to know more about essential oils, read this post or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope you have a great weekend! Next week I’m sharing a home tour of Mary Ann from Classic Casual Home. I just spent three beautiful days at her lovely home and can’t wait to share it with you!
