Hey ya’ll and happy Friday. The last Friday of March to be exact, and actually the next time we’re back here together will be April 1st.
No foolin’. 😉 You know what Friday brings with it, Friday Favorites.
This Friday I’m excited to be teaming up with Tania from 50 is Not Old for ‘Friday with Friends’ . So if you are here from her blog, Welcome! I’m so happy you popped over to check out Coast to Coast. If you’re one of my sweet regulars, be sure to hop over and check out her blog when you finish here.
When Tania contacted me and asked if I was game it took me about a nano-second to know I loved this idea. I also love the name of her blog. I mean let’s face it, 50 really isn’t old. We are just hitting our stride, getting comfortable in our own skin and looking ahead instead of behind.
I have to share with y’all this funny story and a true example of just what a small world it is we all really live in. Tania told me she was from Virginia in her email. Well naturally I asked where in VA because I too am a Virginia girl. I told her I was from Richmond, and she said she was from a tiny town on the opposite side of the state. Grundy. Are you kidding me? Grundy is the town next door to the towns my parents are from. As if that isn’t crazy enough, it’s also the town one of my cousins lives in (there are 30 of us btw…our moms are sisters, and 2 of 10 children). Anyway, wouldn’t you know she goes to church with him and his family. Seriously y’all…C-R-A-Z-Y! AND, if that isn’t enough in common, Tania and I are both Rodan + Fields Consultants. We are living in parallel universes all the way across the country. HA!
It’s about this time of year, every year I can no longer take the pasty white feeling I have. My glow from last summer is 100% gone. I don’t know about you, but I truly feel better about myself when I have a little natural color. I think I just look healthier (and happier). I use my Rodan + Fields Foaming Tanner for my body, but for my face I prefer a product that’s made specifically for that purpose. I’ve used these in the past and like that it truly is gradual and very natural looking.
I’ve been shopping the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty this month. In case you’re not familiar, they offer certain products for one day only at 50% off. YASSS!!! Last week I ordered this spray. I’ve heard lots of great things about the St. Tropez line and this Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist sounds like the bomb. You can apply it under or over you makeup and use it on your neck and chest for an added pick me up. I can’t wait to give it a whirl and report back. I’m pretty optimistic, so I ordered 2 bottles.
I am still head over heels for my It Brush Bath cleaner. If you use a product like the R+F Radiant Defense or the It under eye concealer (one of my all time favs), then you need this brush cleaner. I haven’t found anything that holds a candle to it. It literally dissolves those products that are a liquid type. For my other brushes I just use Dawn dishwashing liquid although a friend just told me yesterday she’d been using baby shampoo, so next time I’ll be trying that.
Let’s talk t-shirts. How hard is it to find the perfect tee? Well for me, it’s a huge challenge. I think most tee’s aren’t flattering on me, but this one is an exception to the rule, and the best part is it’s only $16. It comes in 10 other colors, the fabric isn’t see through and the twisted front makes it hang well. It can also be worn pulled down and will cover your backside for wearing with leggings. Yep, it’s a good one.
I can’t not mention my favorite white jeans from Loft. I looked high and low for white jeans and Loft by far has the best options, especially if you happen to have any cellulite you’re trying to keep on the DL. I have 2 pairs and love them both. The snakeskin flats are my new spring shoes and they look darling with so many outfits. You can wear them just like leopard and pattern mix.
All last summer I wanted a straw bag and just never got one. This year, I’m doing it! (so y’all hold me to it) Here are the two I’m currently looking at. Shop the bags here…
Have you entered the JORD watch giveaway? I’ve been wearing this new watch every day since receiving it and I’m in love. I love the color of the face and combination of the wood. One lucky reader will receive a code for $100 off the watch of your choice and all others will receive a code for 10% off, so really, everyone gets a trophy. LOL
If you’re a regular, thanks so much for coming back post after post, and I hope you’ll pop over and say hey to Tania, and tell her Lisa sent you.
