Top Five Friday : Snowed In

Hi everyone!  I hope you're all staying warm out there.  The weather has been brutal this week, but luckily we didn't get as much snow as other areas on the east coast.  For all of my California readers- enjoy the sunshine and warmth for me!

I'm going to be sharing a few of my favorites for the week.  I hope you all have a great (warm) weekend!

Song : Beauty and the Beast by Lindsey Stirling

I'm sure you're all well aware that Beauty and the Beast comes out this weekend, but even more exciting than the movie itself (for me at least) is hearing the soundtrack!  I've always loved Disney music as a kid and listening to it still makes me happy, so hearing the new versions of old favorites has been really special.  This medley might not be on the official soundtrack, but I love listening to Lindsey Stirling play so much that I had to include it.


Podcast : WTA Insider Podcast

I've been loving watching and following along with the Indian Wells tennis tournament (which I talked about last week). There are so many matches going on that it's pretty much impossible to catch up, so I love to listen to the WTA podcast. I listen to this year-round, but it's particularly good whenever there's a larger tournament going on. The host interviews players, coaches, plays press conferences, and covers all of the upsets and important match-ups (note- this podcast only covers women's tennis, but No Challenges Remaining is my favorite podcast that covers the men's and women's game!). It's a great way to feel connected to the tournament and players without devoting all of my spare time glued to the TV!


Product :  Lululemon Speed Tights

Last week, I was feeling down about my injury (which, by the way, has been feeling MUCH better and I'm going to try to run this weekend! Fingers crossed) and decided to do some retail therapy to cheer myself up, using some of the money I saved during marathon training.  I ended up buying a new pair of speed tights from Lululemon in the most cheerful, happy print.  There was only one size left (which just happened to be mine), and as soon as I checked out it went out of stock, so I'm telling myself they were meant for me.  They made me happy and I can't wait to wear them out on a run.



Show : No Tomorrow

Over the weekend I got to catch up on a lot of shows and also started a new one that I discovered on Netflix called No Tomorrow!  It airs on the CW, and this is the premise:
The series follows a woman who lives in Seattle and becomes involved with a free-spirited man who inspires her to make an "apocalyst", a list of things to do before the world ends—which he claims will be in eight months and twelve days. With the help of her friends, they try to find out if he can be taken seriously while completing the bucket list.
It's such a cute and fun show that's easy to get into.  If you're looking for a new show to watch, check this one out!



Random : 1Q App

One of my favorite parts of my job is that I get to find out about cool new apps and get to play around with them as research.  One app that I learned about last week is called 1Q, which pays you to answer survey questions for companies.  The questions are really simple (an example is "How many times have you been to Costco in the past month?") and you get paid 50 cents per question, which is automatically paid to your Paypal account!  I haven't made a ton of money from it, but it's pretty much free money so I'll take it.

  11. So this morning, I woke up to a nasty cold and a headache, meaning noting productive is going to happen after my shift this morning. I think coming back to check out No Tomorrow sounds like the perfect way to spend my afternoon in bed. Thank you for the rec!
