Friday Favorites #141

Hi friends! We made it!!!! The weekend is just a few short hours away and for some of you, by the time you’re reading this, it may have already arrived. Don’t forget, we “spring forward” Saturday night. It seems like it’s really early this year, doesn’t it?

Picture via Google

Are you a Costco member? If you’ve been around here for 30 seconds, then you know we are HUGE fans. We love us some Costco. You also may have picked up on the fact that we like to graze the samples. Do you? Of course sometimes you’re taking your life into your own hands. Some of the people at our Costco are cut throat and you’d better get out of the way. HA!

I love it when they are sampling something and we end up liking it. I ran in the other day to grab a couple of things and these protein bars were being sampled. They were surprisingly yummy. You know a lot of these can be like eating cardboard. Not these. They really do taste good. (at least I think they do.) The chocolate chip cookie dough is a great knock off of the real thing. (and in case you’re curious, yes…it does goes well with a cup of coffee. #winkwink) The brownie flavor is kinda fudgey and they both have chocolate chunks in them. They are low carb, high protein and high fiber.

These are both products I’ve tried recently. The Aquage was first, and when I finished it I wanted to give the Pureology a go. I’m always looking for something to give my hair some extra ummph. There’s a lot of it. It’s thick and heavy. I think they are very similar and give the same effect. The Aquage is more of a traditional foam with a tip that applies right at the roots. The Pureology has a very similar application tip, and while it’s called “mousse”, it’s more of a bubbly foam, so if you try it don’t be surprised.

Who doesn’t love blush? It’s been riding high for quite a while and feels like it’s going to continue hanging around , although I do think lavender is going to give it a run for it’s money. These wedges are super cute and a great dupe for one of last spring/summers most popular shoes. This is one of my many Kendra Scott necklaces and it’s so much more versatile than I even imagined. It goes perfectly with pinks and purples, but is in no way limited to those. I was super excited (for you?) when Nickel & Suede brought back the pink leather earrings. When I got these I had no way of knowing I’d end up wearing them so much, but I bet I wear them a couple of times a week.

The perfect spring outfit. Target has been on its A game for a while now. This cardigan has the same look and feel of a more expensive one but with a much better price tag.

ATTENTION: If you’ve been in the market for a new pair of jeans, look no further. These are a screamin’ good deal. They are KUT from the Kloth and on sale for $15. Yep, you read that right. They are a great dark wash, with the perfect amount of stretch and they do.not.bag out. They are “petite” and just the right length on me at 5’3″, but would make an ideal ankle length if you happen to be taller. They are also the exact same pair that’s currently available “on sale” at one of our (my) favorite retailers for more than twice this price. #addtobag

Seems the blog world is all a flutter for Rae Dunn and I’ve decided to buy in. I found two of these adorable bunny mugs that say “Hop To It” on the back and a darling little cream pitcher that I’d been on the hunt for that says “Pour”. Now if I can just find the little sugar bowl that goes with it. I think they will be so cute on my tiered tray. If you’re in the market for some Rae Dunn, I really suggest checking your local TJMaxx, Marshall’s and Home Goods stores. Ours are pretty well stocked right now. Here are a few things you can find online.

Did you see Wednesday’s post? I shared my experience with an at home teeth whitening system. I’m hosting a giveaway and one lucky reader will win their own whitening kit. I hope you’ll hop over and read the post and then enter the giveaway. Good luck!!!

I think that about does it for today. This time next week I’ll be beside myself because Katie and Luke (the boyfriend)?will be coming home next Saturday. Let the countdown begin!!! I hope you have a great weekend.
⏰Don’t forget to change your clocks!⏰

    I’m so glad blush is still a “thing”! I love it so much. I’m loving the outfit with the white jeans and pink it really flatters you. I gave you a shout out on my blog today, you’ll have to take a peek when you get the chance :). I’ve had some very good luck with Kut from the Kloth–that deal is super.

    • March 9, 2019 / 12:43 pm

      Me too Kim! Oh my goodness, you are too sweet. I’ll head over right now. I haven’t had a chance to do my blog reading from yesterday yet. Hope you’re having a great weekend!!! XOXO

    Ooh I am so into Nickel & Suede right now, and I think that pink is going to be my next pair. The striped cardigan is sooooo cute too. And really good to know on those protein bars – I’m always looking for ones that are low in sugar but don’t taste weird… Stopping by from The Blended Blog 🙂

      Hi Anne! Thanks for popping over! I got an email from N&S that they’re having free shipping today ??. Have a great weekend!!!?

      • March 8, 2019 / 6:57 pm

        Thanks for the heads up – I might have just ordered… yay 🙂

    Love that earring and necklace! I’m always on the hunt for a good tasting protein bar that packs a lot of protein punch without lots of added sugar.

    • March 9, 2019 / 12:36 pm

      Thanks so much! These protein bars definitely check those boxes. Hope you’re having a great weekend! XO

    I need those shoes and that necklace! I think I am going to order those shoes now!
    So glad you shared the protein bars, I snapped a picture so I can tell Brian to get them when he goes next, they sound yummy. I wish I had a quarter of the hair you have, I cannot even imagine!!! You have the best head of hair my beautiful friend!
    Have a terrific weekend!!!

    • March 9, 2019 / 12:36 pm

      Oh my gosh, yes you do!!! Of course I know you already ordered them?. The shoes that is. But you’d wear that necklace all the time too. I hope y’all like the protein bars. I know people have different ideas of yummy and I’m hesitant to share, but I think they’re good and more like a treat. Happy weekend sweet pea! XO

    We always laugh that we are fabulous consumers. So many times they are sampling food at Sams, we will end up buying it because we’ve tried it and like it. Obviously it’s good marketing!!
    I’m such a shoe addict that I can’t NOT buy new sandals every spring…I love those Lisa!

    • March 9, 2019 / 12:36 pm

      HAHAHA! Us to Jodie, but yep, they sometimes sucker us right in to purchasing. Definitely a good strategy for selling! We have to have new sandals…it’s part of our job. Wink-wink! Happy Saturday! XO

    Oh, I think we’re going to be Twinkies on the Rae Dunn pitcher. I have that one and right now, I’ve been using it as a vase for some spring flowers. I went to our TJ Maxx today, but they didn’t have any other things and we don’t have a Home Goods. Poo! Happy Friday!

    • March 9, 2019 / 12:35 pm

      I think I know which one you’re talking about. It’s bigger than mine. This is a little cream pitcher, and I actually want the want that says cream and sugar if I can find them instead of pour. The stuff definitely comes in waves, so just keep checking. Happy Saturday darling friend!!! XO

  9. March 9, 2019 / 12:35 am

    Oh I adore wedgesand and that outfit with those stunts is fantastic! Love that cardigan too! Enjoy your weekend!

    • March 9, 2019 / 12:36 pm

      Thank you Nancy! I just love that wedges are so much more comfortable too. Happy weekend to you too!! XO

    Hi Lisa!
    I collabed with Smile Brilliant before and love the product. I am whitening my teeth as we speak! You also had me at blush! I love the shoes, necklace and earrings, so pretty on you and perfect fora Spring pick me up!
    Have a great weekend!
    jess xx

      That’s awesome Jess. I think a lot of people must have used the products. They really did work so much better for me than the one from the dentist. I even told my hygienist about it. LOL. Blush is so beautiful!!! Hope you are having a good weekend! XO

  11. March 9, 2019 / 12:15 pm

    I never got around to changing my car clocks so I’m actually excited to have them be the right time again! Haha! I think we might have the same rug by the way-or at least very similar! The light blue oriental one looks almost exactly like ours in the living room! I have blush earrings and wear them all the time, too. They go with everything!

    • March 9, 2019 / 12:35 pm

      OH my gosh…that’s HILARIOUS!!! I wish I’d ordered two of that rug in smaller sizes go in front of our bathroom sinks. That’s a runner in the bathroom. I love the colors. We both have good taste.? Hope you’re having a good weekend! XO

  12. March 9, 2019 / 2:11 pm

    Can I go shopping with you sometime?! You always find the best things! I def thought that cardigan was from Nordstrom! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend, my friend! xoxo

  13. March 10, 2019 / 1:32 am

    Love the blush pink tee with that grey cardi, what a lovely spring outfit! 🙂

    Thank you so much for joining the #weekdayWearLinkUp 🙂 Hope you’re having a great weekend!
