Five Fresh Friday Favorites

Hi friends! Today I’ve got five fresh Friday favorites to share. Say that five times fast. LOL I hope you had a wonderful July 4th. Ours was very low key and relaxing. We’re in what I’d call a lull in life. We don’t have kids at home and are waiting on the next phase of life that includes little people. I mean aren’t all holidays just more fun with littles running around?

Coast to Coast Friday Favorites

As always, I’m linking up for Friday Favorites with the girls above, so let’s get right to it.

Mango Shave Cream, Friday Favorites

Now that we all seem to be obsessed with all things Trader Joe’s and share our latest obsessions, there’s always something new to try. My friend Carrie recently shared a Trader Joe’s haul that included this honey mango moisturizing cream shave. It truly is a cream and feels very silky. It makes shaving easy and I think I can go longer between shaving. #yesmaam

Y’all know I love my Rodan + Fields foaming sunless tanner, but I just had to try this St. Tropez Bronzing mist. (currently on sale??) Well the verdict is in. The pros: The quality of the tan it produces is gorgeous and lasts about a week. The color is even, a non streaky tan that doesn’t look funky on knees and ankles. The cons: You have to apply it, leave on 1-3 hours and then wash it off. This means you need to plan ahead. I find a day during the week when I’m doing stuff at home and apply it after I work out and just put my workout clothes back on for a few hours. I use my R+F to extend it a few more days. The R+F foaming sunless tanner (feel free to visit my website goes on easily, applies evenly and dries quickly. You can get dressed as soon as it dries and go on with your day. The two together make a great combo. While we’re talking tanning products, I’m still using this St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist and really, really like it too. I am religious about keeping sunscreen on my face, but spritz this on a few times a week and I look like I’ve got a natural tan. #workslikeacharm

Christian Louboutin Nail Polish, Coast to Coast

What’s more fun than new nail polish? Winning a unique designer nail polish that is perfect for displaying on your vanity. This is a Christian Louboutin nail polish. I got lucky and won this from Shannon (Oysters to Pearls) on Instagram. The handle on it mimmicks the heal on a shoe. I joked and said I’d keep it in my nightstand as a weapon in case of a break in. HA!

I bought this tee in white and loved it so much I had to get another one. I ordered this gorgeous blue-gray color. My jeans that I ALSO LOVE are on sale for 60% off. They are GREAT. Super soft and stretchy and oh so comfortable.

One word...ROCKSBOX! I am working in partnership with them for a few months. So far I’ve received 4 boxes from Rocksbox and it’s so fun to get these in the mail, open them and find out what I get to try. You get to preview what your stylist has picked, and can switch out pieces before your box is sent. I typically have exchanged one or two of mine for something else. For $21 a month you are sent 3 pieces of jewelry at a time to try and wear. Wear them as long as you want or trade them back in as often as you like, as long as you are paying the monthly fee. Each month the $21 can be applied to any of the pieces in your box, and if you buy all 3 pieces you get an extra $10 off. Use my code COASTTOCOAST2XOXO for your first month FREE.

That’s a wrap friends! Hope you enjoyed these five fresh Friday favorites. Have a great weekend and I hope you’ll subscribe to receive posts by email.

    That’s a commitment to use that self tanner! Banana Boat Summer Color for 6.99 is my go to! That nail polish bottle is a work of art. I love that top on you and that will become a true closet staple. I’m sad about no young kids at holidays, too.

      We’ll have kids again one day Amy?❤️And then we can spoil them and send them home. HA! I’ve been seeing some of the other products from St. Tropez line that look a little less high maintenance in TJMaxx, etc… I may give one of them a try. XO

    That nail polish bottle would make a great weapon! Ha!!! I can’t believe you’ve already gotten 4 boxes from Rocksbox – wow, that was quick! I love all the pieces you’ve worn, they look great on you! Happy Friday sweet friend!

    • July 8, 2019 / 8:10 am

      Yeah, Kent better watch his P’s & Q’s. HA! Happy Monday! XO

    That nail polish bottle is pretty amazing. You’ll have to let us know how you like the polish and if it’s worth $50!

    • July 8, 2019 / 8:10 am

      I hate to use it. LOL I’ll paint my toes all pretty and red for Christmas. XOXO

  4. July 5, 2019 / 7:21 am

    Ha! Nail polish as a weapon! I love it! Low key holidays are some of the best! And I’m sure there are “little people” in your future soon enough!

    • July 8, 2019 / 8:10 am

      I will wait patiently until the time is right for my kids?God’s timing will be perfect. XOXO

    Ooh that Louboutin nail polish bottle is FANCY. What a fun prize! I’ll have to check out that TJ’s shave cream next time I go in! It sounds great and I’m sure it’s reasonably priced.

  6. July 5, 2019 / 8:30 am

    I’ve heard a lot about the St. Tropez tanners! Since skin cancer runs in my family, I’m religious about suncare, but that really appeals to me – not so much the time consuming nature of it though lol can you not sit down while it’s trying for 1-3 hours!? Thanks for sharing these, Lisa!

    • July 8, 2019 / 8:10 am

      I’ve been seeing some of the other products from that line in TJMaxx, etc… I may give one of them a try. XO

  7. July 5, 2019 / 8:50 am

    That nail polish – so fancy! I wouldnt know what to do with that – I’m all about the 99 cent bottles 🙂 LOL

    • July 8, 2019 / 8:10 am

      LOL Rebecca Jo. I hate to use it it’s so expensive, but it is pretty to display! XO

  8. July 5, 2019 / 10:20 am

    So fun that you won that nail polish! The bottle is gorgeous! I love St Tropez sunless products but don’t think I’d ever be organized enough to plan ahead to use it. Have a wonderful weekend!

      I know right, Jill. It definitely takes a little planning, but I do like the results. Not all of their products seem to be so high maintenance. I’ve been seeing some of the other products from that line in TJMaxx, etc… I may give one of them a try. XO

    Oooh, I’ll have to check out that TJ’s shaving cream! I don’t go there often (quite frankly, I’m terrified of the parking lot!), but I do have a few of their beauty products and really really like them! I have a coconut hair mask that smells AH-MAZING! (And it really seems to soften up my coarse hair a bit!) Hope you have a great weekend, Lisa!

    • July 8, 2019 / 8:10 am

      What is it about TJ’s and their parking lots? I think it must be a universal thing. Ours moved about a year ago and the parking lot is a little better, but still not great. The old one was taking your life into your hands. UGH! I’ll have to look for the coconut hair mask. Thanks for the tip cutie!!! XO

    I have two little people and they really make life sweet! I love that top and all the color selections arew wonderful. The navy is calling my name. I like that the peplum starts up higher rather than around the hips. I think it is so flattering. I ordered my second pair of TB flip flops yesterday in the Beach color. Can’t wait for them to arrive! Happy 4th weekend!

    • July 8, 2019 / 8:10 am

      Aw, I know you just adore them! I like that the peplum starts up higher too and agree that it’s more flattering. Have a great week. XO

  11. July 5, 2019 / 8:13 pm

    I have the bronzing mist but haven’t had a chance to use it exactly for the reason you said! It’s hard for me to make sure I have time to apply it then rinse it off later! Hopefully I get time this coming week! I need to check out the bronzing face mist too!

    • July 8, 2019 / 7:57 am

      It’s a great product, just the time factor. I’ve been seeing some of the other products from that line in TJMaxx, etc… I may give one of them a try. XO

  12. July 5, 2019 / 8:29 pm

    I’ll definitely be looking for that TJ’s shave cream…sounds wonderful. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  13. July 7, 2019 / 1:19 pm

    You wear a peplum so well! That baby blue is very pretty with your coloring, too.

    Love all of the Rocksbox goodies. What fun! Like Christmas to get a new box.

    Trade Joe’s, we eat and buy groceries in El Paso, Texas…please open a store here.

    • July 8, 2019 / 7:57 am

      Thanks Leslie! Oh I hope you’ll get a TJ’s. Write them a letter?

  14. July 7, 2019 / 1:33 pm

    Yay for winning the nail polish !!! I am a girl who loves a good polish !!! Happy Sunday !

  15. July 8, 2019 / 9:35 am

    congrats on your nail polish win! And I think RockBox sounds so fun! Accessories delivered to your door is fabulous!

  16. July 9, 2019 / 6:06 am

    That Christian Louboutin nail polish packaging is super elegant! Also, peplum tee you have there dear!

    Did you use the CL nail polish yet?? The handle can definitely be a weapon!
    I love that baby blue peplum top. I might order the same one.
    Thanks for linking up at

    • July 24, 2019 / 7:56 am

      Hi Sarah! I haven’t used it. I’ll have to try it in the fall on my toes. I get my nails dipped.?The blue peplum top is the best! You should definitely order it!
