Happy Friday, Ambitious Fam! How has your week been going? It has been a super busy week for me (that will continue through the weekend) but I am always excited to see Friday!
Here are five things that gave me all the feels this week:
The Circle Season 3
Have you been keeping up with the Circle? It’s a social experiment reality show on Netflix that first aired at the beginning of 2020. The new season started last week and it already has more twists and games than before! I was fully prepared to binge the entire season, but they are getting released in 3 episode intervals. Can’t wait to decompress with this week’s episodes tonight!
Raise your hand if you’re a 20-something that occasionally feels like they have no idea what they are doing even though everyone else looks like they do (*raises hand). Twenty Something is a 10-minute short on Disney+ and after I watched it, I immediately sent the recommendation over to my bestie. It was such a cute way to capture how this phase of life can feel–especially in your early twenties. Now that I am in my late 20s, I can confidently say that no one has it all figured out. We’re all just trying to do the best that we can do to get through the day. Anywho, if you have some time to spare, I def recommend that you give it a watch too!
Pumpkin Shaped Candle
I haven’t gone too crazy with fall decor in the past, but I definitely have my eye on a few things this year. I’ve fallen (no pun intended haha) into watching a few “fall decorate with me” videos on YouTube and it really makes me want to find a few small ways to cozy up my space this season. One thing that I did pick up was this medium pumpkin apple cider donut candle from Target. Not only does it smell like fall, but I couldn’t resist the pink pumpkin shape! I fully intend to save and reuse the glass container once the candle is finished burning. This soy candle comes in a variety of sizes, scents, and prices (the small being just $5)!

Apple Cider Glaze Donut
Speaking of apple cider donuts, this week Krispy Kreme released their new apple cider glaze donut flavors! I tried 2 of the flavors for this month’s donut days series during my Wednesday Coffee Chat with Cierra live in an unconventional location (stay tuned for Sunday’s vlog for more info haha). My local Krispy Kreme was out of the Apple Cider Glazed Cake donut, so I was only able to try the Apple Cider Glazed and the Apple Cider Glazed with Brown Sugar Kreme. My first impression of the unfilled glazed was that it was a little spicier than expected but generally good. I actually preferred the filled glazed donut as I felt that the kreme balanced out the spice flavors. These flavors are only available until September 19th, so if you are even a little bit curious I would say to try them for yourself!
Y’all, my favorite cookie biz, Chipkick Cookies, is dropping a new cookie flavor this weekend, and color me super intrigued! You may remember the Chipkick team from this interview on Virtually Best Friends Pod or the giveaway that I did with them on Instagram a while back. They have THE BEST, thicc with 2 cs, nostalgia evoking cookie flavors in the game. The newest flavor being released is called dulce vita and features a vanilla wafer and white chocolate dough base that is stuffed with dulce de leche caramel filling. Tell me your mouth isn’t watering just thinking about it. How do they keep coming up with such delicious-sounding flavors, I am not sure, but I am still advocating for a VIP pass in their test kitchen haha. The new flavor drops TOMORROW at 10 AM on their website, so make sure to get your order in if you are interested! The drop will also include some of their signature “core 4” flavors.
