friday favorites 2/7

ONE:  Billie Razors     I hate women’s razors.  You know what razors are good? Men’s razors.  You know what not super moisturizing when shaving your legs? Men’s razors.  See the problem?  These razors solve both those problems at a way more reasonable prize.
TWO:  Bioderma Micellar Water     I got this as a sample and loved it so much.  I thought my face was clean after washing it.  OH BOY was I wrong! I even use this in the morning before I go running because apparently my face gets dirty when I sleep?! Gross.
THREE:  TimeTree Calendar App     My husband and I both use this app, he has an iPhone and I have an Android.  I love how customizable it is and that it instantly updates when he adds/changes an event and vice versa.  We have colors designated for both of us, each of children, all of us, bills, holidays, and whatever else you might need. Oh and it’s FREE.
FOUR:  PureProtein Lemon Cake Bar     These are new and if you like lemons and eat protein bars GET YOURSELF SOME OF THESE.  I’m not over exaggerating when I say that in all caps.

friday favorites 1/24

1. FitMe Loose Powder    I like this more than the Laura Mercier setting powder...it keeps my makeup in place, smooths my skin and doesn’t give me “cake face”.
2. JustIngredients Organic Face Serum    This has become my holy grail face product since I started using it in October.  You only use a few drops, so it lasts for a really long time!  This was the product I got the most messages about when I shared it, saying how much THEY loved it too.
3. Silicone Loofah    Far more sanitary and lasts longer than a regular loofah & works just as well.  
4. CRZ Workout/Running/Sports Pants     I have always struggled to find a workout pant that can go from running to working out.  My thighs and waistline aren’t proportional so if it fits in one place, it won’t fit in the other, or will ride down or blah blah a million other things that people with stick legs don’t worry about.  BUT THESE.  I actually wear a small (normally a medium in other pants), because I love the compression they give, they feel like butter and I never have to adjust them in whatever it I’m doing.  Can you tell I’m passionate about a good workout pant?!

Favorite Things: January

Favorite Things Friday is switching to Favorite Things Monthly this year!  So while we're quickly working our way through January, let's get started with some of my current favorite things.
While most of these favorites are "beauty" related, I've also got some amazing items you HAVE to try soon.  So let's dive in! Give me a minute to talk about why I love them & at the bottom are the full names & links if applicable. (All opinions are mine & none of the links are affiliate links.)
1. Aztec Clay Mask.  THANK YOU SADIE JANE  for snapchatting about this!  I have had such picky skin for like all my life & I love this mask. It's a powder that you mix with apple cider vinegar (I use 1tsp. of both) and apply to a mask that hardens and it has helped so much. 
2. Vitamin C serum.  I'll be turning 26 this year & I had this internal panic about getting old and wrinkles and my under eye circles...this helps tighten, brighten, and smooth.  LOVE it.
3. Caramels.  Found at Target by the checkout. They're not healthy or fancy but they are delicious.  And you're right, that bag is empty because I have no self control.
4. Vapor Stick.  I love the breathe essential oils & they are a life saver, especially during the winter/cold months to really open up your chest and stuffy nose. This stick is new and I am obsessed.
5. Dry Shampoo.  While on the higher price end, my lovely hair dresser sister in law gave me this for Christmas & I am pretty sure there's no turning back now.  I've post about the PhD 5-in-1 & their dry shampoo keeps me a huge fan.  Well played Jennifer Aniston, well played.
6. Vaseline Tin.  My lips have been addicted to chap stick since high school.  But this changed everything. I only apply this at night before bed & I never need anything during the day.  It's less oily than straight Vaseline & even more effective. It's brand new to the states, comes in a few different types and is finally out in stores.
3. Lovely Candy Co. Caramels 
4. Breathe vapor stick from DoTerra Oils 
6. Vaseline Lip Therapy Tin

Friday Favorites: Fall Style

Is it fall yet?! I am so ready for cooler weather and being able to wear jeans without loosing half my body weight in sweat! (Lovely visual, right?) You Arizona girls feel me!  I've been pinning (living vicariously) some fall transition outfits so for Friday Favorites, I thought I'd share a few! I'm just so excited for long sleeves and layer and being able to use the other half of my closet again...

Friday Favorites: Beauty Products






 I'm not in any way a beauty expert or even a beauty guru, but I do love a good product for a reasonable price that makes me want to tell everyone about it. That being said, these are my current 5 favorite products that I consistently use and can't get enough of.
1. Gel Xtreme Shine Topcoat   // This is like a lower price version of the SecheVite top coat but works just as well and doesn't get thick 4 days after opening it. (Am I the only one that happened to?!)
2. up & up Teeth Whitening Wraps   // Target brand teeth whitening strips. A little thicker than the regular ones but equally effective and cheaper.
3. Revlon Grow Lucious Mascara   // I've been cursed with tiny eyelashes but that stuff actually works you guys!  So I'll continue using it while I save up for $100 lash extensions.......
4. NuMe HydroPunch Shampoo & Conditioner   // With all the swimming I've been doing, this duo definitely gives my hair the much needed refresh from the killer chlorine and sunshine.  Follow them on instagram to see when they have amazing sales.  I just bought a curling wand from them and I'm already in love with it as well!
5. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1   // My sister-in-law gifted this to my for my birthday and it's taken the place of the last leave-in oil elixir I used.  Light and effective is a winner in my hair book!

Friday Favorites

Today's version of Friday Favorites are all things you can access on your phone.  App, website, or account.  Things that I use consistently and best part, don't cost any money.  Happy Friday, friends! 
Cartwheel by Target is addicting and basically like mobile discounts.  You can stack them with items already on sale that week AND with coupons.  It came out about 2 years ago and my sister-in-law and I jumped right on board and have been using it ever since.

I've had snapchat for years.  love using it with family and close friends to send pictures (mostly of my child) without posting them all on social media.  But it's recently become popular for bloggers to show behind the scene snaps and I love it! (I'm katiecarranza on there!)

TheSkimm is a free service that emails you every weekday morning with a summarized version of the latest news happenings and goings ons.  I'm not a big news reader or watcher so this is a perfect and no-effort way for me to stay up to date all while laying in bed in the morning.

I'm no fitness guru, and usually I only work out so I can eat junk food, but I love a good burning workout.  AlexaJeanFitness instagram account is my current favorite way to get free, quick, gym-free workouts in at home.  She often posts simple, no equipment workouts that will make you burn like no other! After trying a few of her posted ones, I went and bought her 30-day Ab Workout plan, and let me tell you...that does not disappoint either!
