Friday Favorites #135

Happy Friday my friends! I feel like every Friday I arrive here and I’m in disbelief that yet another week has gone by. I can definitely testify that the saying the older you get the faster time goes is 100% true.

We have had 4 straight days of rain and that means I’ve spent a lot of time inside, like really a lot. Like I didn’t even leave my house from Sunday afternoon until yesterday morning. Yes, I was starting to get a little stir-crazy, but I hate running errands in the rain. Honestly, as far as having to be out in inclement weather, I prefer snow to rain, except for driving.

Well, hopefully I can still come up with some fun things to entertain you and share with you. Ready, set, go!

LOL! This showed up on Facebook this week and of course it made me laugh. What’s even funnier is last night we were looking for something to watch and what do you think was coming on the TV? You guessed it. GREASE! This is by far one of my favorite movies. Is it just me, or do you enjoy a movie even more when you just happen upon it on TV?

It’s no secret I love Tennessee. Maybe it’s because 2 pieces of my heart are walking around there, maybe it’s fun memories, or maybe it’s a host of the sweetest friends. Most of my tribe lives in Nashville and you’ve probably figured out by now, I’ll use any excuse to get there as often as possible.

My kids gave me this candle as part of my Christmas gift and I love it. They really do know me! These candles would make the cutest gift for someone moving, or who recently moved and is missing home. They are available in lots of cities and states, but that’s not all. You can also get them “themed”, like Grandma’s Kitchen, Summer Camp, Friday Night, Backyard BBQ, well, you get the picture. One of these would also make a great hostess gift or thinking of you gift.

Faux Rosemary Plant

I’m pretty sure I’ve told y’all that our house is where plants go to die. Sad but true. I have a black thumb. Womp, Womp. Kent and I were out doing some shopping last weekend at a new shopping center with a gorgeous new Pottery Barn. We had walked through, but it wasn’t until we were walking back by that this cute rosemary topiary caught my eye in the window. I think it was the only one in the store. PB has some of the most realistic faux plants I think I’ve seen. I also picked this one up a couple of times to look at it and was sorely tempted. The rosemary one came home with us, and I love it! Bonus…I can’t kill it!

T3 Singlepass Flat Iron

I recently had to get a new flat iron. I had a hunch mine was about to die and sure enough, one day it just wouldn’t even come on. Thankfully I’d seen the T3 version at our Costco, so I ran right over there and grabbed one. I’m slowly but surely turning into an all T3 beauty accessory fangirl. I got the hair dryer last year and have really been loving it. I have a TON of hair and it definitely cuts down my drying time. ??If you have a Costco membership, this is the best place to get these, if not, I’ve linked several good options. If you’re patient, you can wait for Ulta to have a good coupon for 20% off that doesn’t have exclusions.

I can’t believe I haven’t shared this little gem with y’all. Kellyann shared about it a week or so ago and I was like what???? I hadn’t told you about this? Bad blogger friend!

This Make Up Eraser is a great hack on nights when you are just too lazy to go through your entire makeup removal routine. Don’t leave that stuff on your face friends. Most of the time I use my Micellar Water before my regular cleanser, but occasionally I just wet this, wipe my face off, slap on some eye cream and call it a night.

I shared this cozy tunic sweater on Wednesday and I’m thinking a lot of you are fans just like me. If you missed it, you can check out the post here. I am also a loving these sweaters and ordered this one and this one along with these jeans from Loft yesterday.

On Monday I shared a new to me company for essential oils that offers a really great program of subscription boxes. Read the post here and remember when you use my link here  and enter the code COASTTOCOAST2FREE you’ll receive a $20 gift card good on a future purchase or your next box.

Have I got a deal for YOU! For the rest of the month whenever you order one of Rodan + Fields 4 regimens and add the Active Hydration Serum and Active Hydration Body Replenish you’ll receive an additional 20% off the entire bundle. That means you are getting the Active Hydration Body Replenish for FREE and still saving a few more dollars.

Use my Solution Tool HERE and find out which regimen is right for your skincare needs then email yourself the results.

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of being pasty white, and I’ve started using some of my Foaming Sunless Tanner ($26 retail) on my legs, neck and chest. I’ll gift you one of these when you sign up as a new customer and order one of these bundles, or reimburse your $19.95 enrollment fee. Either way, winner-winner-chicken-dinner. Offer good for the next week until the 24th.

Okay friends, that’s a wrap. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and maybe you’re lucky like Kent and have Monday off. Let’s hear it for 3 day weekends! Whoop-whoop!!!!

    That make up eraser has me so intrigued. I am a fanatic about always getting my makeup all washed off but this sounds great in a pinch. That candle is so sweet, what a thoughtful gift. Yep, Grease is so my jam. I usually don’t watch a lot of movies over but whenever it is on TV, I stop and watch and sing along. And shhhh so does Mr. Nine. It’s our thang, lol. Hope your weekend is full of sweet moments beautiful friend!

      It’s really cool. The kids did great. They know where my ❤️ is. 😉 YES, to GREASE and all us girls should watch it on our next trip. HA! Oh the singing and dancing we would do. XO

    Oh that candle is the sweetest thing ever! I know your heart is there and one day you’ll be beack for good! That rosemary topiary is so real looking. I have a black thumb too, heck I can’t even keep an herb plant alive and EVERYONE says they’re so easy, ha! I love that make up eraser so much, I cannot believe how clean my face is! Have a super weekend my friend, I hope the rain stops!

    • January 21, 2019 / 9:34 am

      I know, right?! They did good. I swear that topiary is great and the price wasn’t that bad either. Kent even has commented several times how much he likes it. WIN! XO

    Lots of great finds! Love the Friday Faves segment. The rosemary topiary looks so real. Yes, my home is where plants die too…..

    • January 21, 2019 / 9:34 am

      Thanks so much Regan and thanks for reading too!!! I’m glad I’m not alone on the plant killing front. LOL

    I oh so hope the rain tapers off this weekend and you and Kent can get out and get some fresh air! It’s suppose to be nasty here and then very cold again next week! That’s January weather in Louisiana for ya! Happy weekend gorgeous Friend!

    • January 21, 2019 / 9:34 am

      Thankfully we’ve had some relief, but still some rain too. I can’t complain though because I’m so much happier when the hills are green vs. brown. YUCK! XO

    Well for not getting out much you still had plenty of good stuff this week! I love the idea of those Homesick candles! They would make great gifts. But of course, I need to try one out for myself first! LOL!

    • January 21, 2019 / 9:29 am

      HA! Thanks Gina! The candle smells good, but not real strong. I think the idea of it is what I love the most. XO

    I put that flat iron on my Christmas wish list and Santa delivered. My old (cheap) one would straighten my hair, but the T3 definitely makes it feel silkier and also lasts longer (into the next day). I’m a fan! Great finds – hope you get some sunshine!

    • January 21, 2019 / 9:28 am

      OH YAY! I’m glad I’m not alone. I feel like it’s really good, especially for the deal I got at Costco. #Costcowinsagain

  7. January 18, 2019 / 8:21 am

    Hmm…I am going to be in the market for a new flat iron this year. My chi just seems to be not really doing the trick anymore. I’ll have to check out the T3 even thought no Costco in my Plants all come to die at my house too girl…it’s ridiculous how terrible I am with plants.

    • January 21, 2019 / 9:28 am

      Trust me, you can’t possibly be any worse with plants than me. If you want one of those straighteners, I can order it on Costco and have it shipped to you? XO

  8. January 18, 2019 / 9:01 am

    Grease is one of my favorite movies to watch over and over too! I need a new hair drier and need to check out T3 next time I go to Costco! That candle is so cute! Have a wonderful weekend!

      Yes Jill! Look at Costco. Such a good deal there. XOXO

    I have a black thumb, too! I kill each and every plants, and I’m sure it doesn’t help that my cats like to eat all their leaves, too (idiots). I love that faux rosemary though, and I have some serious goals to add some nice faux foliage in our new home after we move. Also, that candle. I need it 😉 happy Friday!

    • January 21, 2019 / 9:28 am

      Black thumbs unite!!! You could have an entire collection of those candles from all your moves. That would be cool! XOXO

    I have LOVED all the rain we got this week, except we had to travel to UCLA on Wednesday for a dr appointment for Tony and driving over the grapevine with pouring rain and gusty winds was NOT fun. But lord knows we need this rain so much in Cali. Right? So it can rain again for another few days and I will be ok with it. Have a fabulous weekend!

    • January 21, 2019 / 9:28 am

      I’m am loving how green things are. It’s so much prettier and happier when it is. XO

    That magic eraser is something I need to try!! I really need to go into Costco, my husband has a membership and he always goes to get some things… but, I always stay home. Oh, I just love all of the Grease movies. I need a Grease movie marathon sometime soon.


    • January 21, 2019 / 9:28 am

      YES, you need to start going to Costco. I think you’ll get hooked. Plus I’m a sucker for a sample. LOL

  12. January 19, 2019 / 12:16 am

    Can you believe I never watched Grease completely! I must be the only woman. Haha, hope to see you on my Fancy Friday linkup party! Happy weekend!

    • January 21, 2019 / 9:28 am

      Oh Nancy, You gotta’ change that. LOL Such a fun movie, especially if you like musicals.

  13. January 19, 2019 / 10:25 am

    It may be time I jumped on the T3 train. Just may hold out for that Ulta coupon and get one!!

    • January 21, 2019 / 9:28 am

      DO IT! I really like their products. OH, but I did order the curling iron and returned it. I need to do a post about it. I didn’t find it to be worth the money. XO

  14. January 19, 2019 / 7:49 pm

    I’ve seen that candle before and thought about getting it for some people for Christmas. Is it a nice smell? Does it actually remind you of Tennessee?

    • January 21, 2019 / 9:28 am

      It does smell nice, but isn’t super strong. The thing that reminds me of TN is just knowing it’s from my kids and of course I see the state every time I look at it. LOL I think it’s a great novelty gift.!

  15. January 21, 2019 / 5:55 am

    So many great goodies Lisa! I love that rosemary plant. Sadly, I have a black thumb as well!

    • January 21, 2019 / 9:28 am

      Black thumbs unite! HA! I’m saving the foliage one faux plant at a time. LOL

  16. January 23, 2019 / 4:30 pm

    These are cute picks dear, especially the faux rosemary plant. Also, I love the leopard print bag!
