Friday Favorites April 2015

Hey yall, it’s Friday again! I must say, this week has gone by pretty quickly. I hope next week goes by fast, too since I am going to Disney World next Friday! Now, because I said that, next week will crawl by slower than my marathon time. Now that’s slow!

Anyway, it’s been awhile since I have shared some of my favorite things. So, here we go!

Timex Ironman ONE GPS+ watch: I know I have shared about this before, but I really REALLY am loving this GPS watch! The numbers are nice and big, and I love the touch screen idea. I still don’t know how to do everything on it yet, but I’m really enjoying it so far.

CHIA life chia seeds: I saw a recipe in a magazine for a smoothie I wanted to try, and didn’t have any chia seeds. I picked these up at Kroger, and I really liked adding them into my smoothie. They are loaded with antioxidants and fiber. I feel like I stay fuller longer with my smoothies now, and they are super easy to incorporate into my recipes. There are a ton of other benefits I could list, but go check it out for yourself here: Renew Life Ultimate Chia life Nutritional Supplement Jar, 16 Ounce

Bath and Body Works Stress Relief Lotion: My mom bought this lotion and left t at my house for us to use, and I have fallen in love with it! I wash my hands so much they stay pretty dry, and I am way too lazy to open a bottle of lotion multiple times a day. Enter lotion in a pump bottle right by the bathroom sink. The scent is wonderful and “supposedly” helps with stress. Ha. You can pick up a bottle at any BBB store or online.

Smocked a lot swimsuit: I love smocked clothing, and Emma Kate was in need of a swimsuit. This site I found has super cute stuff for kids are great prices! How adorbs is this?!? The website is full of cute stuff.

COOLA sun products: When I went to California for the LA marathon, this lotion and sunscreen was in the hospitality suite for us if we wanted to try it. I really love the sunscreen, it’s sheer and very light for your face, and the after-sun lotion is soothing and smells great. I will be buying more when I run out of these! They also have a spray body sunscreen too but I’m too lazy to go find it for a photo. (Noticing a lazy trend?) Here are the two products pictured:

Coola Mineral Face SPF 30 Sunscreen Matte Tint, Unscented, 1.7 Ounce
Coola Wnvironmental Reapir Plus Radical Recovery After Sun Lotion 6 Fl Oz.

QOTD: What is your favorite lotion or sunscreen? Do you buy smocked clothing for your kids?
