**Fabletics provided me with an outfit and The Laughing Cow provided me with product and a $10 gift card for this review. However, thoughts and opinions are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of the brands.**
Happy happy Friday everyone!!
I hope you all have fun plans for this evening/weekend. Kev and I are getting ready to head out to a movie in a little bit. I <3 weekends so so much!
Well, I first want to tell you all about a WONDERFUL activewear company that I really love….
Fabletics is a new monthly subscription-type company co-founded by actress Kate Hudson. I love Kate Hudson so much and am seriously in love with all the beautiful clothing as well!
To start, you take a quick lifestyle quiz to help Fabletics determine your style and taste. Then, Fabletics suggests outfits for you and you can buy things as a regular customer or sign up to be a VIP member to get great savings and perks.
If you sign up to be a VIP member, you can purchase an outfit each month starting at $49.95 (savings up to 40%) or you can skip the month altogether. You are never obligated to buy anything.
Also, your first 2 piece outfit is only $25 + free shipping! Woot!
Fabletics sent me two pieces of my choice to try out and review. I chose the Lima Capri in camouflage and the Leon Tank in black/ultra lemon.
As soon as I saw that cute camo print, I knew I wanted it! Fabletics has several different things in camo too; sports bras, shorts and several different styles of pants.
I absolutely love the thick black band at the top and the cute detail everywhere. They also fit perfectly! I ordered a medium and they are fitted without being too tight or restrictive.
I love the tank too! It’s a little bit longer length, which I LOVE! I also ordered a medium and it’s perfectly fitted without being too tight or revealing. I know it will be a wonderful staple in my workout wear.
I’m almost 12 weeks pregnant and am a little bit “thicker” than I usually am, but both of these pieces still fit great!
The fabric is also SO soft, well made and the perfect thickness. It’s not too thin or not too thick and bulky either. It’s just perfect. I was seriously so impressed with the quality and fit of both of these pieces.
I’m thinkin’ after the baby is here, I’m going to buy a bunch more things from Fabletics. I may use it as a motivator as I’m losing the weight afterward. FUN!
I also want to tell you guys about a fun package I received from Laughing Cow recently.
They sent me some White Cheddar and Creamy Swiss wedges along with their Cream Cheese spread wedges in Classic Cream and the new Chive and Onion flavor. They also sent me some bagel thins and pretzel crisps to try with the cheese.
I’m a huge fan of Laughing Cow and love to eat them with veggies and crackers or put them on my sandwiches or in my eggs. Yum.
I also love that the light cheese wedges are only 35 calories and the cream cheese wedges are only 45! Wow! There is a lot of cheese stuffed in the little triangle wedge too.
Laughing Cow also sent me a $10 gift card so I could purchase my own thing(s) to pair with the cheese. I chose to buy some fresh veggies (carrots, celery and peppers) because they are my absolute favorite thing to have with Laughing Cow wedges. I also bought some Whole Wheat Pita Bread so I could make some yummy homemade pita chips to have with the cream cheese wedges.
I have to say veggies haven’t sounded particularly yummy to me since I’ve been so sick with this pregnancy. BUT, if I pair them with Laughing Cow cheese they taste so good to me! They are the perfect little snack.
I also love how portable the cheese wedges are. Kev actually took several of them to work and enjoys them for lunch all the time.
Anyway, I thought I would tell you guys how I make my Pita Chips so you can all make them too! They are super quick and easy to make and all my kids love them too!
Homemade Pita Chips
(makes 32 chips)
- 2 Pita Bread pockets cut into small triangles (I cut each pita bread into 16 triangles.)
- Seasoned Salt, to taste
- Olive Oil
Start out with a the healthy pita bread of your choice.
I love this pita bread made by Papa Pita, but it’s a local company based in Utah. I like these pitas because they taste good and all of the ingredients are real! They do have 170 calories per pita though. Yikes. They are quite large though.
Using a pizza cutter, slice each pita bread into 16 small triangles.
Arrange triangles in a single layer on a baking sheet. Spray (or brush) with olive oil and then sprinkle liberally with seasoned salt.
Remove pan from oven. Flip triangles over. Spray (or brush) the other side with olive oil and then sprinkle liberally with seasoned salt.
Broil for 1-2 more minutes or until lightly browned and crisp.
Serve with you favorite dip or spread!
These chips are so so yummy! In fact, yesterday my son had some of his buddies over and they were all hungry. I pulled out the leftover pita chips, veggies and Laughing Cow cheese and they loved it! It was the perfect thing for growing, starving teenage boys.
I was happy they enjoyed it so much AND it was healthy for them too! Win, win.
Well, I gotta roll! I hope you all have a great night!
