It’s Friday. Heyyyyy! I’m singing because I am so glad today is here. This has been a long week for me and I’m overjoyed that it is Friday.
Here are a few of my favorite things from this week.
1. Lavender Oil
I burned my arm this week while cooking. Lavender oil smells so good and helps prevent scars. I’ve also been putting lavender on my scalp mixed with coconut oil and it’s so soothing.
I started using this Radha Lavender Oil this week
I’ve been posting snaps everyday. It’s quick and easy. Plus, I like following my friends, family and companies on there too.
A few of my many snaps this week. If you’re on Snapchat, my username is thegreatdanaj. Let’s share snaps!
3. College Nationals Throwback Week
So, this week is UCA College Nationals. I competed for 3 years at UCA Nationals at Disney World in Orlando during college. It always falls during Martin Luther King weekend. Two years back to back we won! It’s been fun reminiscing this year and every year by throwing up old photos and pictures of our championship rings. I miss those days! Not sure I can still bust out a back tuck, but I can still stunt. It made me remember how I first decided that I would go to West Georgia one night while watching them win nationals on ESPN. Watching the squad this year made me feel like we really started something there and that it’s a legacy that will continue on for years to come!

17 National titles in our entire program between two squads! Pushing to make that 19 this weekend! Go Wolves!
4. Jane the Virgin
I have been watching Jane the Virgin since the premiere episode. The show is hilarious and unique. I like the style and telenovela vibe. I loved seeing the clip of Gina Rodriguez, who plays Jane, winning her Golden Globe. It was beautiful! In her speech, she said that the award meant the world to her Latino community.
“This award is so much bigger than myself. It represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes,” Rodriguez said. “My dad used to tell me, ‘Today’s a great day, you can and you will,’” she said. “Well, dad, today’s a great day, and I can and I did!”
Have you watched Jane the Virgin? You definitely should!
5. Cashew Milk
I stopped buying milk long ago. I alternate between almond and coconut milk. I found this new option from a person that I follow on Instagram. I like the fact that cashew milk has a thicker consistency more in alignment with whole milk than almond milk. It’s so creamy! It goes nicely with everything, even hot cocoa. I can’t really get with almond or coconut milk in hot cocoa. Just doesn’t taste that great.
That’s all for this week! Have you tried anything new lately?
Have a great weekend.
