WW and Trying New Things: Breakfast Cookies

Since joining WW I've tried to go out of my comfort zone a little, forcing myself to try new things. One of those was trying new recipes. I have to say, this recipe from WW was really easy to make, was super fast in the oven, and tasted great. And as someone who hates eating breakfast, this was a fast and easy way to get some nutrients into my body early in the day (it paired really well with my coffee!). Bonus: it was gluten and dairy-free AND my kids loved it (probably because of the chocolate chips).

Shopping Local: The Scrunchie Edition


I remember back in the day, like we're talking 1991, when fluorescent pink and green scrunchies were soooo cool. Then one day they became uncool, and my pre-teenage self took a vow to never be caught dead wearing another scrunchie ever again for as long as I lived.

But like all things and fads in life, trends get recycled and updated with a bit of a modern twist. And since I'm the kind of mom who sports leggings and a messy bun almost daily, I definitely feel like it's time to amp up my bun game.

I haven't bought any of these yet (not have I been paid to promote them - in fact these sellers have no clue who I am) but I've had my eye on them for awhile....maybe I'll treat myself, it is Mother's Day tomorrow after all right?

Knot Your Average Scrunchie is an Ancaster, Ontario (Canada) based shop. The grand-daughter and grandmother duo create high quality scrunchies out of the most fabulous fabrics. This oversized cheetah satin is my fave! AND it's under $10 (click here to see). Check out their super cute Instagram page too: @knot.youraveragescrunchie.

Blush Scrunchies is based out of Toronto, Ontario (Canada) and their secret sauce is lengthened fabric for a more full looking scrunchie. I am so in it. The fuller the better IMOP. Also can I just say that I'm loving this red "Sangria Satin" scrunchie?! Check it out here (link).

Soooo you wanna go bigger eh? Well my Google search for "oversized scrunchies" led me this awesome Vancouver, British Columbia based shop, Charlie Paisley. And friends, I think I found the Mecca of all hair accessories. Handmade? Check! Canadian made? Check! Oversized and plush? Check! Check! Naturally derived and biodegradable fabric? Check! Vintage fabrics? Check!

I absolutely love the story of how they came to be, and their mission is quite lovely as well. Read all about it here.
